Re: Iran Air seeks to figure out the future on its Boeing order

This is risky for Iran, whatever the Biden administrations position is - I know this borders on a political post, but it has relevance here... If the Republican stance doesn't change with regard to Iran, then the next Republican President or the next time the Republicans control the Senate, they ca...

Re: Non-April Fools: Will WN join an Alliance?

I don't think it would be in their best interest. Since their frequent flier program runs on points how would a member turn those points into a reward flight on a partner airline. Maybe they would consider code share flights for long haul international flights. However, I would not hold my breath.

Yes, narrowbody aircraft are a little slower, but not much. Otherwise it is the seat and service. I prefer narrowbody Ai...
