Re: Skytrax: Airline of the year is 'Singapore Airlines'

What is so special about Bangkok Airways that they rank 21st? Looks like nothing special to me.

Re: Couple in hot water over "Stupid" stunt at SXM

Another sensational Fox News article. First, it is not a cargo jet, but a (much smaller) business jet. Second, look at the shade: it is still over water, the sun comes from that direction, so that means the plane is even further away than its shade. It is just an optical illusion that it looks like ...

Re: New luxury airline to offer affordable prices for first-class only aircraft

The most interesting is that they say they will not fly to the regular, large airports, but are contracting with small, private airports or at least have their own terminals.

Re: Why KLM don‘t serve KEF ?

After over a decade of reading other people's posts, my first reply.
