Re: KLM launches BLR in W19

Nice to see this added back! I was one of those booked on NW flight when it was cancelled. Always prefer to go through AMS and looking forward to this flight. Surely it will get increased to daily when the airframes/slots open up.

Re: Airport outdoor observation areas

One of my best past times was at PWM - Spotter's Spot. I learned a lot of camera skills. Was nice to see some B6 delivery flights as well!
IAH - Roof top garage connecting C/D/E. Great place to see big birds. I make sure I always park on top just to get some pics :)

Re: UPDATED: Delta announces JFK-BOM

I'am a skyteam medallion member and used AF (and also NW/KL back in those days) out of BOM. There's plenty of demand for DL - the last few flights to ATL were full. DL will do very good on this route - they must have gotten some corporate contracts before announcing. Nobody's gonna start a ULH route...

Re: How big can SWA get in ATL

I've been a frequent flyer out of ATL for decades. FL had a much bigger presence at ATL and also a fan base. WN didn't win the hearts of many in the area (nor the businesses).
