British Airways has introduced fully flat seats in '95 in Business Class. Then, in 2002/2003 other Airlines started introducing Angled-flat seats (they recline to approx 170 degrees). Why introduce angled flat beds instead of improving on the British Airways design? Is it due to the safety requirem...Jump to post
Why would wealthy people refinancing cause tention ? It’s in the paragraph - feel free to reread above.

The fire tablet is not a good tablet, or e-reader, in trying to do two things it managed to do neither well. The Kindle has been a god send to me, my wife is an avid reader, to the point where we would check a small suitcase filled with books for long trips, now she carries a Kindle.Jump to post
$881 rt on Qatar RSW-MNL various dates through the next few months, some long connection times though.
$1002 out of TPA and it saves you 20 hours in both directions.
That gets you to MNL, then just grab a cheap flight to Surigao.

With or without the crash, i think 9/11 would have ended the career of the Concorde anyway.
What sort of cruise line is Fred Olsen line? A fleet of second-hand vessels suggests a budget operator, or am I mistaken? Very much so, it's a premium line, closest I can think of would be Cunard, maybe a little higher like Azamara. Yes their fleet is second hand, but they are very well maintained ...Jump to post
So it looks to me like the Virgin Group is waiving it's licensing fees for 2 years, remember, 0.7% of gross revenue goes to the Virgin Group from Virgin Atlantic, that's roughly £200m a year (and people wonder why VS was having a hard time making money in the good years). £200m?

Hello everyone, I’m currently obtaining my night rating and preparing for my first solo. My instructor said I’m all good to go. However, I’m just super anxious about flying alone in the dark.

My understanding of the Karabu agreement was that it only applied to existing routes that connected through (but did not begin or end in) STL.

Seems like one of the biggest issues with TWA post-1991 was that its product wasn't competitive, the planes were old, inefficient, and TWA's European stations were over-staffed and expensive to operate and maintain given EU labor laws.
