Re: Pacific Airlines (former Jetstar Pacific) revealed its livery after rebrand

The livery looks like that of a chemical company. The only I can say I like is the font of its word mark.

Re: Where was Legacy pre-9/11 UA Bigger at SFO or LAX?

LAX was not established officially as a hub by UA until 1995, but for UA, SFO has historically been its cash cow. For the past 30+ year...

There are still many former Pan Am’ers based in London, and a few who have been there since the original base opening in 1970. I was p...

No. No matter how inappropriate the passenger is behaving, we do not use physical force. In the United States, that is considered assault. The captain should’ve called for airport police to come and remove the passengers. As crew members, we do not touch customers.
