Re: Disapointing TWA HOTEL at JFK + UA 787-10economy FRA-EWR (w/photo)

I'm not surprised that you had a bad experience; all businesses go through that when they first open. It doesn't matter how ready they think they are, there will always be issues.

Re: Flight Attendants are Selling Their Seniority

Most people here are missing the point. I think someone hit the nail on the head saying that these trips don't belong to crewmembers; they belong to the company. Having the seniority to hold desirable trips only gives you the option of working them and nothing else. To profit from something that doe...

Re: Fist-fight erupts on Scoot flight from Australia to SIN - video

There are bars in ever airport I've ever been to here in the US, at least every reasonably sized one, so yes, you can liquor up before boarding the plane. The issue really is that the servers at the terminal restaurants and bars should cut people off at some point but they often don't. Leaving Vega...

Re: Airlander 10 gets full-production go-ahead

I think this is very exciting, as it could give us an alternative to common air travel. However, I can't see this replacing anything. The reason most people fly is to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible. This airship would not be able to compete with jet travel. I would compare this t...

Re: Why does UA call LHR, NRT & FRA United Hubs?

LHR and NRT (not sure about FRA) had service to other non hub cities in the past. For example LHR-DEL, LHR-AMS, NRT-SEL, among a bunch of other routes. Perhaps UA just kept the tradition of calling those airports hubs. As the topic author said, there is no legal term for the word hub so, why not? Al...

Re: Johannesburg layovers by European airlines

It has always been a trend for pilots to have longer layovers than cabin crew members. In my opinion, the airline will probably be more willing to allow longer layovers for pilots because they are viewed by the public as the ones that have people's lives on their hands while on flight. People want t...
