Re: What would Pan Am look like today?

Today's Pan Am would not be anything like Emirates. Emirates is great to connect the world via Dubai. Its smooth and easy. Why would anyone transit via the US with all the hassle and bad treatment of immigration and all? Have done both and unless I want to spend some time in the US I would always pr...

Re: Airlines serve JFK for a notch on their belt or to make money?

Outside the US most people used to associate JFK with 'THE' airport for New York. I remember that it was only in the 80's or maybe early 90's that European airlines started to serve Newark as well. Once LH started serving Newark lots of people were confused as it was a completely unkown airport to m...
