RE: PER-SYD-PER In Style: Falcon 900C

Hi thaia345 That sure is a nice way to fly. No queues, plenty of space to spread out, privacy and knowing that everyone who is on board (apart from crew) is there because they are your guest. It doesn't get better.  <img src="http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/graphics/smilies/smile.g...

RE: Short Questionnaire About Airline Website Usag

Have completed online survey. I hope that the information provided helps.

Although I now live in Australia, at one time I attended what was then the Buckinghamshire College of Higher Education.

RE: The Grand Pakistan VIP Air Tour By PIA

Hi Sam,

What an amazing report. Royalty treatment all the way. Stunning scenery. Access to areas others can only dream of. It is great that you were able to venture into the maintenance area.

Thanks again for bringing a report that is definitely "out of the mould".

Regards,

Roy / Quokka
