Skyservice, New Site, Book Online

Thu Mar 22, 2007 12:00 am

WOW shocked that I am seeing this, Looks nice from the first page, the rest of the site still needs a little updating, but can now book direct with Skyservice for the Italy Program, and soon to be the Belgrade / Zagreb program. Funny on one of the headers there is a picture of a 767 in full skyservice colors. Gotta love photo shop  Hope this will mean a few more destinations will come our way, seeing we have a few new landing rights, hope the people upstairs will take full advantage of this.

Hmmm, it seems you can only book online on flights to Rome or Venice. And whenever I put in dates it said there's "no availibility" no matter what date I put in. Could this be a glitch?

I hope they expand the online bookings, it would be sweet to be able to book some of their really cheap sell off seats to Europe!!

Do Believe they want them to start the second week of June, the BEG ZAG flights. I don't know the sched. but I do believe they show the dates in the site somewhere. Not sure of a glitch or if the site is fully up and running yet.

Actually, Skyservice flew the 767 last year.

They literally slammed one of them into the runway in the Dominican (if i remember correctly), and the plane was out of comission for a while, while they fixed the problems!

I think that was an airbus A320 @PUJ back in May of 2005. That said, it will be interesting with this direct booking feature how well they are able to do with the Tour operators (Signature, SunQuest).

Not sure, I did try this myself and it did work. Some flights I'm sure are already sold out. Another reason could be that we may not have access to all seats on flights. I'm sure airman or I will get back to you all on this.

As for BEG/ZAG: see http://www.747travel.on.ca (June 18th-Sep 11th)

It's nice to see the new look. Very smart, but the guts inside the site need a total re-vamp as well. I'm sure that's coming.


FYI,

Sorry that has been two years since we had that piece of crap. Well Almost two years, And the 767 on the letter head was photo shoped with Skyservice HOUSE colors. The ones we had flying for us were in Sunquest colors. The plane in Question that was in PUJ was the 767 REG C-GLMC. Back in My Travel's fleet in full MYT colors. Hope to never see those things again in the fleet. Not sure how this is working out with our Tour Operators. They agreed to something of us selling our own seats on only a portion of the plane, I think they may resort back to us (skyservice ) before the flight departs. How long before, not sure, Or what percentage of the plane is ours.

Yeah, I'm mixing it up with an Airbus A300 that lost its rear stabilizer after leaving Cuba a month or two earlier. It was supposedly the same pilot error that caused the AA A300 bound from JFK to SDQ to crash on Long Island back in November 2001. But yes it was a 767 that hit the runway pretty hard coming into PUJ in May 2005, passengers really upset over the jolt (Wasn't one a pregnant woman who miscarried?).

You mean an A310. It was Air Transat.
