Frequent Flyer Programs Records In Miles Per Year.

The question is whether it is an accessible information or classified as commercial? Is it is within programs' interest to publish such? My personal oppinion is that it scores around 250k. It reflects numerous transatlantic crossings each month with some mid-haul experiences. -Hovitzer<br><br>[Edite...

RE: Is It Possible? LH Flights Without Safety Movie.

Some safety demonstration is mandatory, However not the same for all airliners.
Any change to these standars leaving a specific country? In other words, can a country require "more" safety instructions or is it for the airline to regulate?
