Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to answer! Your answer have been very interesting to read, and I look forward to see what you'll say in the next poll:
Title says it all. When booking a flight, what do you care more about? A cheap fare, or the perks associated with a higher fare?Jump to post
Don't forget the FFP factor. I might want to accumulate points on a legacy carrier. Personally, being a big time mileage geek, I would always pick a legacy carrier, and I expect that most people would answer in the same way. I'm interested to see if anyone, like PatrickZ80, would say otherwise, and...Jump to post
Many thanks for all your replies! They will be a great addition to my paper. If you'd like to answer another question, check out the one that I just posted:
As part of a research paper that I'm writing, I am asking questions about the general opinion of low cost airlines. In this forum, I'd like to ask you the following: if you fly a certain route more than 5 times a year, would you be more likely to fly a low cost airline or a legacy airline, and why? ...Jump to post
I really hope that OS doesn't pull out of long haul flights, they offer great service on their long haul flights, and it'll be a pity if that goes away. Hoping that they'll get a few 787s...Jump to post
I am working on a research paper, and my research question is regarding the failure of low cost airlines when expanding into long-haul operations. In order to collect data and gather public opinion, I would like to ask you some questions. Since I have quite a few questions, I will post a new questio...Jump to post
I'm on One Mile at a Time everyday, and it's by far the best airline-related blog. Ben (the guy who runs the blog) is a great writer, funny, and always super accurate on everything.

BA's old Club World is awful. As a UA frequent-flyer, I grew to like the old Polaris seats, though at first I hated them. Being on the upper deck of a 47 softens the blow :spin: LH's old J was pretty sucky, too: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a0/Airbus_A340-642%2C_Lufthansa_AN05283...Jump to post
Yes, aircraft have been in wierd places. There was a Delta A350 in El Paso and a Delta 767-400 in Sofia, Bulgaria Those were military, completely different and not uncommon. United also had a 777-300 in ELP To those inquiring with the DL 767-400 in LAS, that has been a very common sight the last fe...Jump to post
This one reminds of the good old days when I'd cross the Pacific on the upper deck of UA 747s as a kid at least 3 times a year (granted, it was made about 10 years before my time):
On a related note, I recently discovered that San Marino also has a CAA with some private jets registered. AFAIK they don’t even have an Airport there (if you don’t count Rimini). Currently 146 Biz jets on the San Marino register, 244 on the Isle of Man register and 163 on the Malta register! Quite...Jump to post

That's not correct.
LH is using frequently 1L+2L for boarding the A321 CEO in Frankfurt.
Didn't they stop doing that?
My thoughts go out to everyone affected by this disaster. Hope that there was no foul play involved. On an aviation note, it would appear as the Beirut Airport is still operating, as Flightradar24 shows a Yan Air/Eritrean Airlines 737-300 (UR-CNF) that appears to have taken off from Beirut. https://...Jump to post
For some of us it's already July 17th, which is the anniversary of 4 deadly air disasters: - 1996: TWA 800; 747-200 from JFK to CDG; crashing in the sea off the shore of East Moriches, NY; 230 killed - 2000: Alliance Air 7412; 737-200 from Calcutta to Patna; crashed on approach to Patna; 55 killed ...Jump to post
Hoping LH will start their MUC-SEA service, as I spend a lot of my time between those two regions.Jump to post
Runways 16, 34, and 29 are rather boring into VIE. Runway 11 has a nice view, as long as you are on the left side. You can see the whole Vienna, plus the Donaucity and United Nations complex in the distance on clear days.Jump to post
Aegean 806 flying from Athens to Munich is taking a really weird routing today. Seemed to be flying more-or-less directly, then made a 270 degree turn near Split, flew east past Sarajevo, then flew northwest toward Munich and just commenced its descent near Graz. Any reason for the weird routing? ht...Jump to post
September 11th? Of the 2,996 people killed that day, 265 were passengers on the four flights. I guess we’re talking about nuances here. Yeah, of course 9/11 had the most fatalities caused by crashes, but I'm talking about accidents (not terrorist attacks), and, with the exception of JJ3054, no grou...Jump to post

I had to fly to the US in September 2012 and was booked to fly on an LH A380 from FRA to JFK in J. Unfortunately, I realized that that flight (LH400) would likely be cancelled the day before due to a large cabin crew strike. So I headed to FRA a day earlier and asked to be put on any flight to the N...Jump to post

Delta does NOT fly to Nairobi. Kenya Airways terminated JFK-NBO a few years ago.
Do you have a link? As stated above, neither have ever offered scheduled service to SEA and almost certainly never will, but I'd be curious to see where that came from...

According to Wikipedia, both Austrian and SWISS flew to Seattle, but it doesn't say when, and I wasn't able to find any information on Google. Did they actually fly to Seattle? If so, when? And what equipment did they use? Does anyone know what the schedule was?Jump to post

Horrible quality, but photos have emerged of the aircraft's engines scraping the runway:
What were these idiot pilots doing in a cockpit?!? And of an A320 no less!!
Hello! I am interested in what LH decides to put on its FRA-HKG routes during summer 2020. I am scheduled on LH 797 in J and as of today, it remains a 346, which AFAIK, are all stored indefinitely. Being on the route at least once a year, anecdotal evidence suggests high loads in F. Post Covid, the...Jump to post
I don't consider it logical for LH to have so many airline brands. This would be a good time for consolidation, keeping only LH and EW. Expand EW at the expense of OS to fight off other low cost airlines. The VIE hub is perplexing because its location is ideal for a low cost airline hub, but it's s...Jump to post
Just an opinion, I know that DL is creating SEA Asia hub, but wouldn't it work better for AA? I mean, AA is partner with Alaska Airlines, and I think it would be better for them. Plus, Singapore Airlines launched SIN-SEA route last year, so Delta can't really do that either. They have limited optio...Jump to post

Nope. OP didn’t provide a link and I don’t have time to look up registrations at the moment.
So sad to hear about D-ABVO. My most recent 747 flight was with her, and it was quite possibly my best 747 flight. FRA-SEA in late August 2018. Was on the upper deck and had an awesome crew. RIP D-ABVOJump to post

Some aircraft (E-Jets and 777s are the ones I know of, but there are probably more) already have cameras pointing from the cockpit doorway towards the cabin, and you can see the galley, entryway, and first few rows. It's a great idea, and I hope we see more cameras around airplanes soon. Safety over...Jump to post
