"Most airlines give children under 2 a free ticket anyway, if they sit on their parents lap. So as long as the little one does not require its own first class seat, I am sure it will be free." Iain: Free??? I've made 2 roundtrips HEL-IAD with my son, First trip he was 7 months old and now 14 months...Jump to post
It is said that the Captain was in hurry not because he was about to exceed Cockpitcrew's maximum hours, but because there was a possibility to exceed cabincrew's maximum hours which were at that time shorter than cockpitcrews. I think the prison was not the first thing in his mind in that day rathe...Jump to post
Hi! I have booked a flight from NWA and could not find fleet info on their website so here come the questions: How large is their fleet? Do I get very disappointed flying in their DC10-?? after flying several times with AF in their 777's and A340's? (I think I know the answer <img src="/discus...Jump to post
I cannot define myself as an expert but maybe a fan then. AF has been my favorite longhaul airline for over two years now, and everytime I have to choose an airline, I compare it to AF. As a result of this, I'm going up with AF again on next saturday from HEL-CDG-IAD. Jeez!!! Thats day after tomorro...Jump to post
My vote goes to...
... washing the planes from time to time. Anyway, nice airline also with not-so-clean planes. As long as they keep them clean inside I'm with them.
Hi all I'm going to travel with my family from CDG to IAD next saturday. I have a son who is 6 months old, and we have talked to AF and they said that we should have what they call babybasket for my son. What is the baby basket like? I think it is attached to the wall somehow. Can you pls tell me yo...Jump to post
Donder10: What do you mean it looks great? Did you find something which is hidden in the website? The only thing I could find was one B747 picture (taken from boeing website) and one very not so clear screenshot from the sim. I would like to see a few more screenshots from the game to call it anythi...Jump to post
Can´t complain! I've done roundtrips from HEL to IAD with AF and never had any problems. OK once was the flight from CDG to IAD delayed because of technical reason but as I said, can't complain. Because of the delay I had an extra 2 hours to watch the action in CDG. Luggageproblems have only occured...Jump to post
Jeah! Some 5 years ago Air Botnia was still very small company flying domestic flights in Finland. My wife won in some lottery organized by Air Botnia a roundtrip from Helsinki to Jyväskylä. We had no business in Jyväskylä, so we decided to just go flying so that we wouldn't waste the tickets. Well,...Jump to post
WOHOOOOOOOOU!!! What could we possibly find on that topic?
When do people start to understand that Listprice and discount out of listprice does not tell you anything. Absolutely nothing. Listprice is something that someone has written. This is not a new car what we are talking about i.e if you want alloywheels it is +200$. These planes cost hunderds of mill...Jump to post
Would there be anything to discuss if Boeing was the builder of this great plane? You US guys are about to see a great plane. What you do not see, is that discounts and actual productioncosts have very little to nothing to do with eachother. Airlines are only interested how much money they have to h...Jump to post
To buy 14 planes and not need them??? Hello!!! I do not have any idea how much money do they cost each, but even if they get good discount out of them, it will still be truckloads of cash. And only to support Airbus when they have decided to make A380. Come on!!! M Ps. Airlines are Companies, Privat...Jump to post

Hi In the last two years I have flown twice HEL-CDG-IAD-CDG-HEL. Since AF prices are very affordable and the connection is perfect for me, the choice of flying some other airline is like seeking for trouble. Also the groundservice has always worked perfectly. AF has never lost my luggage while for e...Jump to post
Almost all airports are companies or own by state and that means if the airline wants to have more room/gates/lounges at the airport, it has to pay for it. Of course when you buy more, the price might come down.Anyway, the main principal is that the airport has something that the airlines want, and ...Jump to post
Hi, My fastest take-off was a few years ago in the christmas eve from Rovaniemi-Finland to Helsinki-Finland with just 7 pax+crew of 5 (I think) on MD-82. It was spectaculary fast and the climb angle was so high that it felt like I was to drop from my seat. I guess the drivers were in a hurry to go h...Jump to post
Can't tell you anything about German courts, but what I know is that they have had to think this peeing-incident throughly before making this decision. Otherwise there would have been an appeal of the verdict to the next level of German court.
