You could also try listening to some podcasts or watch YouTube videos that teach Greek. Quizlet is very useful for building vocabulary with flashcards, with lots of communal decks uploaded by people. You could choose the level of difficulty and some of them even have audio to help with pronunciation.Jump to post

Which intercontinental routes (pax) are being run at a twice daily (14x weekly) or more frequency at the moment?

Great video! Really miss seeing the red tails.
On a related note, Detroit-Tokyo service will resume on Wednesday, albeit to HND and not NRT.
Fukuoka Airport is literally two subway stops away from the city centre. Takes around five minutes. Tokyo Haneda isn't too bad either. 20 minutes to Shinagawa. Taipei Songshan is another one.

There is/was an express bus to the banhof, as well as a lesser-known one that does a trip to the Zoo station from memory. I found it pretty easily. But both TXL and SXF are dumps.

Last trip: BUF-ATL-ICN-MSP-DTW-BUF (Feb 1 - Feb 7) for my grandfather's funeral
Last vacation: YYZ-LIS-PDL-LIS-YYZ (Jan 25-30)
Didn't have any trips planned after I got back from those.

According to Japanese Wikipedia, the service started in July 1983, initially with a config of F44 C128 Y114, which was modified to F44 C204 in June 1985.
The aircraft were JA8161, JA8162 and JA8169.

I'm guessing that it's because the JAL 787-8s with the old angled flat seats (JA821J, JA823J, JA824J, JA826J-JA835J) were completely removed from long-haul flying altogether, and the ones with the APEX suites (JA836J-JA845J) are extremely premium-heavy with only 88 seats in Y, not making it suitable...Jump to post
It's hard to know for sure. The absolute most we can do is extrapolate based on average fares, premium class award/upgrade availability and load factor, but it will still be very far from the whole picture. This doesn't even take into account profits from cargo and interplay with other connecting ro...Jump to post
BG was supposed to resume NRT last year but for whatever reason it didn't come to fruition.
OZ trialed some charters to DAC recently. Could be a precursor to scheduled service since that's what they also did with BCN and VCE. I don't really get why they would drop DEL and serve DAC instead, though.
Delta usually does stop the Minneapolis flight in the middle of the winter. It’s seasonal for BUF, SYR and ALB and year round for ROC. When it runs from end of March-late November for BUF and SYR it’s basically mainline the entire time with only the first and last couple of weeks it being operated ...Jump to post
The fact that the crew mentioned that they need to stay "healthy" in order to provide service to all passengers is insinuating they are discriminatory in nature. Koreans are very ethnocentric like Japanese, if KLM doesn't handles them tactfully, it will lead to a PR meltdown. So far, no p...Jump to post
Perhaps South Korea would be wise to look in a mirror and face the discrimination within, before complaining about a paper sign on a lavatory door. So are you insinuating that two wrongs make a right and thus Koreans cannot stand up against discrimination, because there's discrimination in Korea to...Jump to post

When I was booking my ICN-BUF ticket, I noticed that there is currently no MSP-BUF nonstop flight, and that it's seasonal. Has this been the case for a while now?

Korean Air has several women only lavatories on their aircraft. The are placarded as such.

As an Aussie of Dutch heritage (both parents), all I can suggest is that Dutch people do tend to come across as blunt and direct if you’re not familiar with the culture.

I think that BuildingMyBento's thinly veiled display of prejudice in this thread against Koreans can actually help explain why this KLM incident has become such a hot button issue in Korea, and why Koreans are hesitant to give KLM the benefit of the doubt.

Better to write "don't take photos" in Korean the lavs, given that we're talking about Korea, South. Better to add "don't squat," too. They should have given her a macadamia to shut her up. Please spare us your thinly veiled stereotyping and derision of Koreans. It's a nuisance ...Jump to post
I am curious how diverse and multicultural South Korean airline companies are?

Just because people are upset about something doesnt make it a big deal. KLM themselves consider it to be a big deal, otherwise they wouldn't hold a press conference about it.
