RE: What Makes And Breaks A Good Cabin Crew Dynamic?

As a handling agent I remembered having to deal with the Dan-Air and Laker flight attendants, 99 percent female and they were the worst, nastiest women I had to work with.

RE: WOW Air Launches £99 Flights From London To The US

I think these crazy whims people get and think they can start up a new airline with no knowledge and probably no cash.

RE: Should ( And Could ) BA Cut The Link With IB?

BA should have jumped on the wagon years ago when airlines were just starting to pair up.
They could have had KLM, Swissair, Sabena to mention a few but they dithered too long and they let them go to other carriers. Iberia probably was the last "half" decent airline they could pair up with.
