Thank you for sharing.

Nice to see a thread on Pakistan for a change. Could someone enlighten me and explain the difference between Islamabad, Karachi, and Lahore? Which city has more traffic volume, or higher yields, or whether one has a particular geographical advantage over the other? Are there any other 2nd tier citi...Jump to post
PIA is operating 4X weekly to YYZ and just twice weekly to JFK. JFK is loss making route for PIA. For N.A. Best thing PIA could do is to extensive code share with TK and start daily flight one each from KHI, ISB, and LHE to IST with onward connection via TK metal. That was a big fiasco last time. P...Jump to post
It is like the ISB to KHI flight a few months back that circled over KHI and then headed out to sea and ........landed in MCT. Even Qatar Airways that was half way through to KHI turned back to DOH. There was heavy fog in KHI that day. Every diversion has an explanation.Jump to post

The threaf title needs to say "Pakistan Aviation thread"Jump to post
Have seen the A321 and 787s. The under bellyshots look good, however it seems more white overall the larger the aircraft when viewed from other angles. I think the 773ERs will look even whiter as it is an even longer aircraft. When will the first 773ER appear?Jump to post
Whatever happened to the 787 deal? Could we see a comeback of other carriers?Jump to post
So they eliminated First Class on some of the newer A380s, and now Business Class too. Looks like they are having a hard time filling their premium cabins so now this under the cover of threat from LCCs to go all Economy.Jump to post
While all my You Tube Turkish Airlinea videos have the old Turkish Airlines boarding and landing music, I do love the new Turkish Airlines boarding music. Those night scenes in the video are awesome too. Looks like I need to fly again just to make videos with the new music :) https://youtu.be/V7gOpN...Jump to post
So then what becomes of YYZ to start in 2018?Jump to post
I can't wait to see the 777s. I did not like the new scheme when I saw pics of it but a dreamliner coming in to land looks amazing. The Rondelle is a nice touch on the belly and the engines. Those bandit cockpit windows are cool which can appear tinted against the late evening light and the light on...Jump to post
Such beautiful birds the Etihad Airbus A340-500/600s. They would have looked lovely in the new colours yet the old colour scheme had a charm of it's own. Sad to see them go. In general for me the Airbus A340-600 is just so grand regardless of the operator. The Etihad Airbus A380 is the nicest out th...Jump to post
Saw the 787 and A321s at YYZ this weekend and I have to say it looks awesome. Can't wait to be back with the camera!! The evening sunlight on those tinted windows (felt tinted) up front as they passed overhead to land on Rwy 23..wonderful!!
Longing to see the 773ERs. They will look magnificent.
Watching your video and the running commentary is a nice touch....Your voice reminds me of the commentators at a cricket match lol. You just boarded the aircraft...looking forward to the other video reports How does this work? "For our flight to Canada and back, we used the companion voucher fo...Jump to post
You never know..... Westjet does codeshare with Emirates, maybe EK can convince WS to try YYZ-DXB 3x :stirthepot: West jet already shows up in fares to Dubai as a connection at LGW. You fly on WS to LGW and then connect on an EK flight to Dubai. I doubt WS will fly their metal all the way to DXB. M...Jump to post
Why not depend on her "Depends" knowing she has a bladder condition. And why wait till descent? However I guess with that condition when you got to go, you got to go!!Jump to post
BUF website shows coach services from BUF to Toronto on Coach Canada and Greyhound (about 3 hours). So EK adding a coach service to the Toronto area wouldn't be that crazy IMO. I doubt very much anyone would fly 14 hours to and from Buffalo to Dubai and then take a Greyhound bus to Toronto. Toronto...Jump to post
. She told ABC that United did not make a gate announcement in French or notify her by email. Since when do airlines send an email for a "gate change"?? Huh! Um, all the time... for years. Thing is, she probably didn't opt in for such. I can understand if the flight was cancelled or the t...Jump to post

Is the question flying over Pakistan a concern? Tons of carriers fly over especially that little corner over Lahore into Delhi that appears to be a trunk route between Europe and South East Asia.Jump to post
The FA looks happy. A fantastic memory for the child.Jump to post
Love your trip reports and even more since they use miles. How does one rack up so many miles so fast? Glad you two always include pics of both of you settled in your seats beaming with smiles.
Lufthansa seems to have served you well. A Hindi speaking German FA. How unique.
Your smile says it all.....I truly love LH's F class reports on here.Jump to post
Looking forward to seeing her in Toronto this summer. I believe the first international route to use it.Jump to post
Oh no.. I don't like those belly logos They should have used the tail logo on the belly. We already have the logo on the engines... It would be too much! I hoped they would put HOMA on the belly though instead of IranAir. Not many would understand Homa under the belly. What does Homa mean? Hopefull...Jump to post

This seems to be stuck for the past twelve days!
Glad you were able to experience this. I visited Hong Kong for the first time last year and absolutely loved it!!! So looking forward to flying it's home based carrier someday.
I noticed Roni in the group pic. It goes without saying he would definitely be there for this auspicious occasion!!
They finally realise not all flights require a widebody jet. What were they thinking when ordering 100+ A380s???? Not to mention 777-300ERs on the side.Jump to post
I seem to be among the minority here that prefers the old blue livery, which looked fantastic and instantly stood out as being AC. It's also quite adept at camouflaging in its native environment :smile: 1304830 The AC ice blue (Is that what it is called) was great especially on the Dreamliner and 7...Jump to post
