Re: BeNeLux aviation - 2018

The link says the E175s will be used for another, yet unknown, route. A while ago there was a rumor about KLM adding Bern using the E175. Could that be it? Was that a rumor or a "wish" by a bern-fan? Cause Bern is a really small city, and for the last year couldn't even fill a daily Skywo...

Re: Getting Drunk on a Plane

Very simple, you can't call the police if someone misbehaves on a plane.So you have to punish/deter people from being stupid.
Drunk people in airplanes could require the plane to land early, leading to more cost (hotel/scheduling fuckup/delay payments) , all things airliners don't look forward to.
