Cool report! Unfortunately I had to cancel my jfk-pek-kix and return of hnd-pek-jfk on the 748, 2 a333s and a 77W on AIr China due to covid - after reading your report I won’t hesitate to rebook with them when the time is right. I’ve heard mixed reviews but they seem fine, much cheaper than others ...Jump to post

Supremely well written trip report, wow, wow! I appreciate a report with thoughts going through articulated in the writing - no, it does not make it long, it makes it very enjoyable. Thank you so much for taking the time and sharing this wonderful experience with us. I love the witty captions - a lo...Jump to post
Lucky for the upguage from the A321 to a B757, as you rightly said it added some variety to it! I wonder if the 787 would continue operating after COVID-19 on LAX-DFW. Interesting anecdote of the disruptive passenger too, good to see it didn't take too long though..Jump to post
Lucky you for scoring this last A310 ride! They took very good care of the oldies. Nice pictures to go along. A plan to visit Montreal last summer unfortunately fell through for me: Air Transat did have the one A310 between YYZ & YUL, maybe it was a good thing as the Formula One race just awful.Jump to post
Nice report, thank you for sharing this! I am always intrigued by the different services offered on rails around the world: this wasn't any different to what one would expect onboard a plane anyway. I remember all the food I've tried onboard Indian trains, straight from a hot buffet car - but these ...Jump to post
Nice trip report & pictures. I am always intrigued to see what SQ offers on their longer flights (to Europe), but for some reason it looked like the trays lacked a bit in quantity...? Maybe it is just me. Great deal on the 'broken' IFE - a little bonus I guess! Thanks for sharing.Jump to post
Thank you for sharing this from your archives. Sure looks like BA did a solid job refurbishing the 747s, wonder how long they're gonna last thanks to the pandemic. Nice food on LHR-ORY, I don't think they do those anymore...Jump to post

Impressed that LH service to MUC is now on a A350. The only services from Denver outside of NA were BA to LHR and LH to FRA in 2013. We now have so many services, COVID-19 would impact some however.

Great trip report. I was a foreign exchange student in Fargo and have good memories of the place, including that wonderful little airport! Thanks for stopping by!

Having flown the AI A320neo numerous times between Singapore and Chennai, I have to say that, despite the decent food and blankets, the short-haul product is not befitting of a national carrier.
