Booking on Condor this summer?

I'm searching for a affordable return ticket from PDX-AMS for this June/July. I usually fly DL, even it's a bit more expensive, I prefer the non stop flight. This year the prices have been very high (around $1800, usually 1200-1300 in high season) so I'm looking for a 1 stop flight. Condor comes up ...

Re: How much do you drink on board ?

On a short flight for business just water of juice, on the way home sometimes a glass (but usually a plastic cup, lol) of wine.

Re: SAS trans Atlantic service

I flew them last September from EWR-CPH and CPH-ORD both in Y. You only get 1 soda for free with the meal, if you want more you also have to pay. That is something that you get for free at some LCC's!!

Besides that the flight was good and I would fly them again.

Re: Is this added security for US-bound passengers?

I had it every time departing AMS on DL, but not when flying KL. So I thought that it was done only when flying on a US airline, until I departed from CPH on SK last month where they questioned me. By now I know all their questions since they're always the same!

Re: SAS experience question

Thanks a lot for the replies! I don't really care about the 1 hour intra Europe flight since it's so short, I'm more concerned about the 5ish hour flight from my hometown to EWR on UA!

I tried to bid for an upgrade but it starts at $360 instead of the advertised $155, so no thanks.

Double diversion LY8?

I was looking at FR24 and noticed that LY8 JFK-TLV has diverted to Gander, possible medical. After 2 hours on the ground it left, but now landed in ATH. Anyone know why? Another diversion?

With pre clearance at YYZ it shouldn't be a problem to transfer in the US.
