Re: Eurowings Adds FRA-LAS

There is nothing special about it, it's basically a street with some hotels, casinos and strip shows not to mention that the whole city is extremely tacky, kitsch. Call Eurowings, BA, and VS asap!!!

Re: Eurowings Adds FRA-LAS

Re: SW 737MAX returns to MCO after engine failure during repositioning flight

There is no GE engine on the NEO. The engine is made by CFM International, a completely separate company from GE. And what information makes you think the A320neo is a death trap?
