As stated above, IIRC the only route that remains is the UA GUM operation. Fun fact: there is a cabotage route within the US operated by a foreign carrier! I don’t recall the specific airports, but I believe they are both in American Samoa? And the carrier is Samoan Airlines? You are very much corr...Jump to post

Quite a bit of ire on here for people peacefully protesting after losing their jobs through no fault of their own. I can't help but wonder how they'd feel in that position. As already pointed out above, AZ staff are a special case. It was almost impossible to be employed there unless you were spons...Jump to post
Sad to read so much hate against those italian FA's. They have lost their job and are given new conditions that are even worse than in most low-cost carriers in Europe. I wonder how many of you have blamed Norwegian & their negative effect on conditions in the US?????? As if they were responsib...Jump to post
I'm having trouble following your questions, so let me say this: the US does regulate bilaterals if a non-open skies policy exists, so wouldn't the easy answer be to look up what the agreement was between US & Qatar/UAE before open skies was signed? Turkey: I'm in the camp that doesn't include t...Jump to post
Yes- but probably not the answer you're looking for. When I was 17 I flew ATL-MSY on a DL DC8-71 in first class- the seat pitch was generous!Jump to post
I think my shortest widebody flight would have been GVA-ZRH (125 nmi) on a SR 743 back in the 1980s. I think it was late 1986. I don't remember how long it was (I was 9) but it was really short. We were going to ZRH but we had come from JFK. For whatever reason, SR did a "milk run" throug...Jump to post

The India related discussions are 1% of what they used to be. Did most Indian posters move elsewhere? Or just on to better things in life? I guess they moved on to other Social media options.Although Some have moved on from Aviation too. For several years, those discussions often become — let's jus...Jump to post

The simple answer is traffic rights: SIN has a liberal 5th freedom policy for airline traffic rights. Back in the days of full fare interline tickets, fares were calculated on mileage so if you wanted to travel via HKG on the one ticket, then no problem. The other thing to remember is years ago, BA ...Jump to post

Honourable mention to my previous post: I once had sex in an Embraer corporate cabin simulator (that should count for something!). The seats really are that comfortable :-) Do I dare ask how and why.

I was about to say, seems a bit redundant. But eh, another quality airline to choose from. Who's complaining! I've heard horrible stories about WY employees.

If I'm in biz class I don't care. If economy, I try to avoid 777's due to the loud engine noise. I do agree the Tristars seemed extremely spacious with the high ceilings before the overhead center bins were installed after refit. Also liked 747 combis so there was never any chance of sitting in the ...Jump to post

Besides, if it did stop, it would be somewhere in Australia, there is no way the NZ government would allow a repat flight to land in CHC and allow the doors to be even opened :lol: You don't need to open the doors- land, refuel away from terminal, then taxi out: 45 minutes.
