If I’m not mistaken, I believe Canada 3000 offered flights from Canada to the Canary Islands for a short time before they went under. I want to even say they had a flight from YHZ. I remember they had a YHZ-AGP flight but I do seem to recall seeing ads in the paper for Tenerife as well. Would be an...Jump to post
It seems like that ADZ airport is very busy. But practically all the flights are to/from Colombia. That forces tourists from North America to overshoot the island twice by almost two hours. The other option would be Copa with a transfer in Panama, that's less of a detour than Colombia. Although it ...Jump to post
Also, any input on airfare on airlines offering connecting service would be appreciated. This all depends on the time of booking, fares constantly fluctuate however they tend to go up as the date of the flight comes closer. Why take a connecting flight if several airlines offer direct flights? Cert...Jump to post
I check from time to time if booked on Easyjet. Those with FF status on Easyjet can claim a credit voucher if the price falls below the price they paid - even on the most restrictive of tickets. Frequent flyer status on EasyJet? Never heard about that, must be something new. The last time I checked...Jump to post
This should be rather cheap, with several airlines flying this route. Both Frontier and Southwest fly OMA-MCO and Allegiant flies OMA-SFB. Also consider DSM as a departure airport, Frontier flies DSM-MCO and Allegiant flies DSM-SFB. Unfortunately these airlines haven't loaded their schedules for nex...Jump to post
The French bought KLM. People shouldn't be surprised that they actually want to have something to say about it. No, they didn't. The two airlines merged, they agreed to both having a controlling position in the new formed parent company. What do you think drives market cap? It's expectation of earn...Jump to post
I’m all for KLM and AF representing the Dutch and French, but it’s time to make it one ship. As long as that one ship is under Dutch management I'm all for that, however I'm afraid the French won't accept that. And the Dutch on their turn won't accept it to be under French management. Instead of ma...Jump to post
Probably a shock to many KLM-staffers as he stood up for his people more than once and he was well liked among them.

All Boeing 787's should be configured like that. That's why I plan all my economy long haul travel on the Airbus A330 and A340. Which is no guarantee either as some airlines have their A330s configured in 3-3-3. For example AirAsia X, it's the reason they're able to offer lower fares than airlines ...Jump to post

The Canary Islands are a predominant winter season destination in Europe for medium-low income tourists from the UK, Germany, Scandinavia and more recently France and Italy. Only in 2019 more than 13 million foreigners visited the islands. Overall they record mild temperatures (22ºC) all year aroun...Jump to post
AFAIK, as an EU based airline it is no longer possible to operate from the UK - needing an UK AOC to do so. That's not entirely true. EU based airlines are allowed to fly from the UK as long as their destinations are in the EU. They aren't allowed to fly to non-EU destinations from the UK, however ...Jump to post
Most people who are under 30 outside the USA and not a.netters have never heard of Pan Am. Would that count ? Likely it does, although the name Pan Am is still relatively well-known.

Air India 747-200 cabins from the 80's. Honorable mention to the Trussardi designed Alitalia 747 cabin- not sure if all the fleet received the makeover or only a few aircraft.

Similar with me, the first airline I've ever flown was Air Holland. They're long gone now and to by far most people the name means nothing, they weren't even that big back in the day.

Thank you for your help if the pilot is struck by an inability to take off and falls on the controls when the aircraft is pitching up. the 2nd pilot can take control quickly to avoid the crash?

Because of status, we don't pay DL's checked bag fees, so we always check our bags. Would you still check them if you didn't have status and therefor they wouldn't be free?

Fly a US airline. Always 2 people in the cockpit on any flight at all times. I thought the EU required (or at least the airlines changed their policies) 2 in the cockpit after Andreas Lubitz?

As for who they “hoped” would have bought it… my guess from a business standpoint…any airline willing to purchase some.

I definitely consider them to be subjective, many times I read them and I just don't agree with them.

Finnair gets my vote for worst livery. Care to share why? In my opinion their livery is a bit simple perhaps but other than that it's not bad. It was inspired by the Finnish flag, which is a blue cross on a white background. They turned the cross into an F in a nice modern way. Of course it's Eurow...Jump to post
Usually I'm not that into old livies, in most cases I find the new ones to be better. There are exceptions of course, some really bad liveries have been introduced lately. I decided not to include those airlines because their old liveries are still (partially) in use. Besides, the fact that their ne...Jump to post
By the way, here's an example of a new livery done right: 5402651,6173103 Left is the old livery, right is the new one. You can basically see the old livery in the new one, that's good.

I'm sure it'll grow on us. Not too sure about that. Lufthansa's new livery has been around for a while now and it hasn't grown on me, I still hate it. I don't think this one will grow on me either.

Just because the experience doesn't suck, and they don't "unbundle" everything, that doesn't mean they are not a Low-COST Carrier.

It is of course a new livery and therefore guaranteed to meet with instant A.netter disapproval. :lol: Not necessarily, sometimes an airline manages to hit the sweet spot with a new livery. Not this one though, it looks too cheap. Not too bad on the 737. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51755761...Jump to post
Southwest has a lower cost per seat mile than United, Delta, American, Hawaiian or JetBlue. Only Alaska, Allegiant, Spirit and Frontier rank lower. That is still a Low Cost Carrier. If it is, then just barely. However looking at what they offer, that doesn't match the description of a low-cost carr...Jump to post
Neither Southwest nor JetBlue are LCCs in my opinion, they're both full-service airlines.

Of course you do if you...Jump to post

I'll probably get some flak for this but I think Air China's is underrated.

As an aviation fanatic, I would never say there are “too many airlines”, that’s just heresy.

Europe already has too many airlines. I don't agree with that. Certainly, if you look at the sheer number of airlines Europe has a lot of airlines.
