B-747-300SUD Question

I’ll understand that the 747-300 was a -200 with a stretched Upper Deck !

What were the pros and cons for this modifaction ?

I’ll understand that Sabena and Swissair operated them , but why didn’t BA , Lufthansa , Pan Am , TWA etc upgrade the 747 with a SUD ?

Re: Air Canada Refund

Hi there ,

I’ve waited 4 month for my refund ! Advise them as your flight was to Europe that they have to refund you within 7 working days according to EU Law EC261/2004 and that they cannot put company rules over Laws ! That’s how I’ve got my money back !

Ryanair, Wizzair and easyJet are the only real low cost airlines in Europe.

Cheap flights from A to B.

Eurowings is basically Lufthansa prices for a less than Ryanair Service. And it's getting worse and worse and worse. Lufthansa is ruining their reputation with Eurowings.
