Re: Did you ever miss the onward flight of your self-transfer?

Have you all ever booked a self-transfer flight on kiwi.com? It covers missed onward flights in a limited way. No, I haven't and likely I never will. Kiwi.com is a great site to find possible self-transfer options, but when booking them I look up the individual flights and book them separately. Thi...

Re: Did you ever miss the onward flight of your self-transfer?

but if asked nicely, most FAs will usually let you change seats to the front of the aircraft before landing so you can be first off and able to run. That doesn't work if the plane uses a remote stand with bus boarding. You can be the first off the plane and into the bus, but the bus still won't go ...

Re: Only one US airline makes the top 10 best

Nowadays quality doesn't mean anything in deciding which airline to fly, what matters is value for money. In that case an ULCC can sometimes come out better due to the lower ticket price.
