Have recently flown jet2 and there are a few rules they enforce that I've never seen before.
- no earphones to be worn whilst seat belt sign is on including take off and landing.
- you're not allowed to bring hot drinks onto the plane.
Do any other airlines enforce thess rules ?
In the EU if a cancellation is not weather or strike related and you get to your final destination 6+hrs later than expected every pax can claim up to 600 euros. I personally got 600 euros last month due to a cancelled flight. There are a few other reasons and compensation amount is based on distanceJump to post
PIT-LHR is cancelled - is the 787 going to sit at PIT indefinitely or would they have someone come in to ferry the plane back to London? I'm thinking it's the latter. Forgive me; don't know much about the logistics of planes when it comes to these strikes. I assume it will sit overnight at pit and ...Jump to post
I mean surely most people who speak French in Canada are bilingual, no? Yeah, they are. Some of the French ones pretend like to pretend that they don’t, but they do. I’ve had some absolutely refuse to speak English to me as an American on a recent trip to Quebec City. I was treated better in Paris ...Jump to post
Can’t post it but I see Dl will be operating a 757 service from BOS to LGW in the fall Smart move Out of genuine benign curiosity, why is it a smart move? I would assume they are flying into LGW, for the same reason most airlines fly into LGW... They couldn’t get a slot at LHR.. Though maybe you ha...Jump to post
A Norwegian 787 was also pushed back into a fence yesterday at gatwick.
I did start a thread on it but as often happens with my threads it was deleted without an explanation
A sterile international pier is a requirement for “transit without visa”. Makes connecting at YUL that much smoother. But you need a transit Visa for canada (if not Visa exempt or already hold s Visa). Surely the only connections at yul are domestic to international / usa or international to usa (o...Jump to post
More passengers and airlines at YUL is good, but it has its negatives, especially if the infrastructure isn’t designed to accommodate the growth. Gate hold upon arrival and remote parking are more and more common at YUL. There simply aren’t enough contact gates for everyone during the evening rush ...Jump to post
Yul is close to bursting. In the evening when the euro heavies depart it is packed No wonder, here are all the trans-Atlantic flights listed for tonight. 18:40 AH2701 Alger / 18:45 OS74 Vienna / 18:50 KL672 Amsterdam 19:00 TS546 Bordeaux / 19:05 AC808 Casablanca / 19:05 AC874 Frankfurt / 19:10 AC82...Jump to post
Lots of threads about BA cost cutting recently. My past few flights I've been at remote gates when arriving European airports on BA (bussed to terminal, no jet bridges used even though the airport has them). My flight tonight from YUL on a 787 with BA is also at a remote gate,needing to be bussed to...Jump to post

Transat sell through Canadian affair which they own. They're often advertised in London newspapers both as transat and Canadian affairJump to post
STN is my local airport - I am in Cambridge and it is about 30 minutes’ drive from my home - but I avoid using. Why? Because it is such a miserable experience to use from a passenger’s perspective. It starts with the drop off - the greedy, grasping airport charges £2.00 (or is it £3.00 now?) to hav...Jump to post

It is good to read several posts that are critical of Stansted. I have used it perhaps a hundred times in the last ten years. In my experience it has been a period of relentless and apparently deliberate worsening of standards. Under BAA management it was an attractive, light and airy place with la...Jump to post
If they want premium long-haul passengers they will need to upgrade the passenger experience. I hadn't flown from there for years until I passed through in January and was shocked at what a run-down and crowded dump it is. Not as bad as Luton, but bad all the same. Agreed. I've been through there 3...Jump to post
Good job it was at Gatwick.
Stansted don't display gate info on their website

I was caught up in this after flying fr8116 on Saturday night.
2 hours 45 minutes from arrival to bags.
Also all the flights disappeared off the screens so everyone had to search the belts for their flights baggage.
boarding pass has been printed at home, no luggage to check and wanting to head straight through security, how far in advance can you realistically go airside. For example would the boarding pass not work until at least 4 hours prior to the flight? do different airports have differing times or is th...Jump to post
Busy when compared to daytime but I think the majority of flights from ibiza are between 2300 and 0400Jump to post
I've always wondered why AC does not operate a daytime flight between YUL and CDG given that it does between YYZ and LHR. Montreal and Paris are two very important French speaking cities in the developed world so I presume traffic would be there. I believe AF operates 3-4 daily flights between the ...Jump to post
Simple question.... based on their rumoured financial performance would you book a flight with them ?Jump to post
I know its not yyz but in yul you can Thanks! I was wondering about YUL as well! used to be separate, but i think they had a shortage of gates for international flights so they merged them together. Sunday evening was horrible, as now there is one security check point for both domestic and non USA ...Jump to post
Have flown a few times on new years eve, most recently was 4 hours ago on Ac864 from yul to LHR. ☺ It was announced we are over Halifax and it is now midnight here so happy New year.

Horrible airline with them blaming the delays caused by them stretching their fleet on weather. It took 9 months and numerous emails to get my entitled compensation for delay.. rant overJump to post
