Worst would be London, it can be a real pain in the ass to get from one London airport to another. Not even close, I've done LHR-LGW more times than I could count, very easy on the national express service, except of course when someone has managed to close the M25.....I also did STN-LGW a few time...Jump to post
Gold you stand a better chance, but still not good, though you do stand a good chance at getting comfort plus. 3-4 years ago DL got very aggressive with their pricing for 1st, this helped them fill up the first class cabin with paid passengers rather than upgrades. Depending on the routes you fly an...Jump to post
Thank you for taking the time to type up the report, out of interest which resort did you stay at ?

Marco Polo in Venice has the must fun one via water bus, though the walk to the boats maybe not so short (I forget). This would get my vote every time, it's been 18 months since I was last there, but at the time there was a lot of construction going on at the terminal, it's a bit of hike, especiall...Jump to post
All correct, and i never said all of it ain´t true. I just pointed out that is only true as long as there is a relatively small electric fleet to supply. Here, and i would expect in the US it would be similar, just running private cars on electrical power would need power production to go up by a w...Jump to post
It is not the Supreme Courts job to make your life better but to uphold the constitution as written.

While I haven't been through Zurich this year, I spent a good chunk of time there last year, it never seemed overly busy, compared to say LHR, I took 20 flights through there and no delays, are the Swiss being overly conservative with the number of slots or did I just get lucky ?
Hub-hub I'd say your chances are pretty close to zero, whether LGA or JFK, especially on a Friday evening. Ugh you're right and I just realized it's a holiday weekend for this area. Schools are closed on Monday so there may be extra people traveling. Only thing I have going for me is that I hit the...Jump to post

IMHO, people are looking at DY the wrong way, they are looking at the hubs being in BCN or LGW or CDG when they should be looking at it as FLL or LAX etc, multiple flights a day from a US city to multiple EU destinations, to me that means that DY is operating long haul hubs in US cities.Jump to post
It's located 32 miles from the center of Las Vegas, a bus can drive that in half an hour. That's not too bad, is it? Again, the problem is, unless there is no traffic, you cannot do a bus (with hotel pick up) to Jean in 30 minutes, as it is now there are times the 15 is gridlock, throw x number of ...Jump to post

Didn't the taxi industry fight any extension to the airport? Yep No. The monorail is a bust, with ridership levels nowhere close to projections. Although some still push for an airport extension, cost-benefit analysis continue to show that it wouldn’t make sense. A couple could take a Lyft/Uber dir...Jump to post
I think a more newsworthy event would be a South African company not bleeding money :lol: But seriously, flying old equipment to Europe and The US cannot be a sustainable business model.

For Vegas locals, yes, it could work especially if they live in the outskirts of town or in Boulder City, Summerlin, etc... for tourists? Hell no. For locals it would work ?????

When was the last time you applied for a mortgage? Why do you feel those with less established credit should not have access to home ownership?

As you stated, for $500 that is a perfectly acceptable flight, heck for $1000 it is, but yes, like so many airlines, the hardware is good, but the soft stuff just isn't there yet. There will come a point where these new far east carriers will get it all figured out, then things will get interesting ...Jump to post
BA must have a disadvantage vs competitors if their planes are using 20% for fuel for most flights. Look at the number of paid J seats they have on those flights compared to say DY and their number of paid W seats, then compare costs V revenue. BA's costs may be higher, but their revenue is multipl...Jump to post
Trumps approval rating is above 60%. Are you bloody daft? You cannot poll just the GOP voters and claim that's his approval rating.... with a straight face.

I wouldn't trust a Chinese-made car. Probably steel is of lower quality to start with.

Well - Europe has even political parties fighting for age of consent like 12. Movement to that has to start somewhere.

I wonder if there was a mass shooting where a bunch of babies (under 3 years old) were killed if the GOP would finally, just maybe, at the very least be slightly open to the idea of gun control measures.* They're pro-life right?

It's hard to do vegas in just a few days and get the whole experience. I've been a handful of times and still haven't even done hoover dam yet.
