RE: Swiss Joins ONE World Not LH

Would Oneworld automatically reduce long haul flights from Switzerland and re-route them through <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> hubs? With Switzerland being such a (seasonal?) big destination for tourism, and I would imagine business as well, I would think that <acronym title="Zurich ...

RE: There's Merger Rumors Floating Around Again....

I would just hate to see another major east-coast airline name tumble... US is the major airline where I live, and after Eastern and National and Southern, would hate to see this one go, too.

Frontier's old color scheme was GREAT. Currently, for me it's a tie between KLM and AA.. And ANY aircraft in BA's early/mid '90's color scheme..

Room/Seat Pitch On Song

Song stresses that since it's an all one-class system, they can make their seat pitch a couple inches more than typical economy/coach class domestic seating. What are impressions from those who have flown Song so far?

RE: CO Giveth And CO Taketh Away

Again, from the standpoint of a sort-of, but not-really frequent flyer, I'd rather upgrade from a lower fare that I can afford and have a really GOOD long flight than get a free flight and be cheek-by-jowl with other people.
