^^^ So, flight attendant on todays flight said it was actually going to go back to A333 for a bit this winter - he said 'loads are really good'. I am doing another R/T on it in November, and it's showing 767-300 on that itinerary. So, maybe they are going to be more dynamic with equipment this winte...Jump to post
Today (sep 16) starts the winter downgauging on AMS flight to 767-300. Saturday’s flight was last on the A330 and I think it’s 767 for the upcoming slow season. I’m flying home to Portland on it today, which is the only way I noticed. I’m back in AMS in November, again on the 767. I don’t mind the d...Jump to post
Flew out of IST for the first time ever this afternoon. 33 min cab ride from downtown , but that place is wildly overcrowded.
New airport will be awesome!
So, PDX is getting more than daily flights to KEF this summer? That’s very interesting if true. 1.5 is like 10x weekly?Jump to post
Looks like the Icelandair flight is being retimed by a lot - AND the RON of the airplane is now ending: Reykjavik Keflavik – Portland OR eff 16MAY19 Schedule revision for Portland departure, as 757-200 no longer overnight in Portland OR. Planned up to 6 weekly flights during peak season unchanged FI...Jump to post

How do people not get fired for branding like this?
Looks cheap and LCCish, with no representation of the proud German tradition of running good business, in a timely and efficient manner.
This plus American Airlines livery have to be in the top 10 of the worst in the world.
US citizen, heading to Turkey next month with gf and family for some holiday. Less than zero concerns about anything. Exchange rate getting better is good news, should stay longer.

I’m booked on Emirates DXB-SFO in late February. Still shows A380.
I’m in first so looking forward to shower. Downgrade would be lame!
These threads are fine until we get into Portland vs Seattle.
Those are stupid conversations we should all know go nowhere.
Portland needs all the flights I described. Others have some good ideas too.
PDX needs a few routes to fill in the map for us travelers. I have faith that Alaska will ramp back some service when Horizon issue is solved... INTERNATIONAL PDX-ICN on Korean. This is desperately needed. Getting to Asia requires a second connection now as the Delta NRT hub is dismantled. I have to...Jump to post
MCO is one of the armpits of the world in every conceivable measure. Doesnt deserve an LHR flight!

Did PDX-FRA last night with the 11:20pm departure. Flight was painless, went by fast and the 170degree seats weren't as bad as I had heard. Slept for over 5 hours. -- Frankfurt is quite far behind Amsterdam for connections though. Long passport lines, walked a long ways. Remote stands. Not nearly as...Jump to post
It was the worst storm in the world. But it weakened after landfall at Cuba (contrary to original prediction of over Bahama) and did not restrengthen as much as expected after leaving Cuba, thus when it hit FL it is a Cat 3 instead of Cat 5. Also, it hit the Keys instead of Floridan southeastern co...Jump to post
Right, and most everyone with any sense disagrees with the silly premise of your entire idea.
Modern society LOVES to tell other people what to do. It's one of the highest forms of idiocy on display each day. If you guys want to run charity airline flights for people, start an airline! Donate your life savings to subsidize ticket prices or something! Donate all your airmiles to charity today...Jump to post
That is the RIGHT thing to do and to argue otherwise is outrageous. It might be outrageous to YOU, but it's very logical and reasonable to a lot of citizens actually. Where is the line in your mind? - Hurricane, ok: how about break even pricing (whatever the heck that means) - car crash: ok, let's ...Jump to post
Why not raise prices and let the market decide if it wants to fly or drive?
What does a natural disaster have to do with airplane prices? The premise here is very confusing.
2018 is the first full year that Alaska loyalists (like myself) can't use delta to Europe.

With the talk of connecting airports (YVR) in particular, I looked at my 2017 flight stats: - This year, I'll end up around 130,000 flight miles. 4 continents, 14 countries, and not a single connection in Seattle. LOVE IT! That's how you know PDX is growing up. (I do use YVR/SFO/LAX as needed for As...Jump to post

Mspxm, you know the exact area where I was arrested. I was as shocked as you of course.

Have you tried to get from PVG to hangzhou ??
I did this year. Will again in a few months.
It's a huge pain.
Probably 4 hours when you factor in stops and everything.
If you are going out to fuyang or anything, it's like half a day at least. No thanks.
Damn, I was going to book that for the fall. Getting directly to HGH is a lot easier than doing the PVG shuffle (maglev, subway, train).
Maybe I can get the flight in before it ends, but, that's sad.
That said, R/T prices were often in the $500 range, so, I guess I'm not shocked entirely.
My lawyer got a CWOP for me, so I paid a fine and over the course of a year was able to expunge this from my record. I was arrested for reasons that were never made clear to the arresting officer. I was told I was being suspicious (even though that's obviously not a crime), and I was in a public par...Jump to post
