Just like how the 2001 post 9/11 sell off wasnt Bush's fault or the 2008 housing bubble crash wasn't Obama's, so too is this unrelated to anything Trump has done. Obama got sworn into office Jany 9th 2009, so you are correct, the housing crash in 2008 had nothing to do with Obama, that was was squa...Jump to post
The 330-300’s had 6 First Class seats, iirc lie flat and (at the time of delivery) were actually one of a kind at the time.. 9/11 changed all of that and they were eventually just sold as Envoy class or Chairman’s Preferred were upgraded. That was so long ago so forgive If I’m a little fuzzy. You a...Jump to post
So Tesla failed to disclose the fact that they built the cars with a previous generation chip and did not disclose that at a later date they would be retro fitting the correct chip.....
I would say they are screwed and the local laws will prevail.
As a huge fan of the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, I should choose the Heart of Gold. But I’m even more intregued by that ship with its Bistromathics drive.

Capetown, Tokyo, Vancouver, Toronto or Chicago are the obvious ones that spring to mind. Could just be more routes from MAN though. Chicago has been tried several times, it's controlled by AA & UA with huge frequencies in the market. Not going to happen. Toronto might work if Virgin could make ...Jump to post
Surprised still no MAN-MIA. Especially with Virgin Cruises starting up soon.
LAS seems vulnerable with so much ULCC competition there although a lot of it is very low frequency. WN move over 17 m people through Vegas each year, i don't see Vegas being vulnerable at all. I could see WN moving some connections to DEN/PHX, but I don't see WN taking an axe to LAS in any meaning...Jump to post

Thanks for the pictures. I actually looked at booking a 3 suites for my next birthday on a 5 night trip.

I think the most realistic option would be Ivanpah as a 2nd to LAS. The BLM, FAA and Clark County re-opened feasibility studies in 2018. As this reply seems to be being ignored, yes, this is probably the most logical choice for the next major airport build, however, I don't think it will happen, bu...Jump to post
@AF Cabin Crew, Do you know the logic behind the naming? Any sort of convention? Surprised to not see Paris or Marseille but St Dennis or Clermont already?! I suppose they're going for a "Air France" vibe and not an "Air Paris" one Maybe have Paris on a widebody and have 20 narr...Jump to post
Question....As these flights landed way early, how does that work with the 6am "curfew", I know there are a limited number of slots before 6am, but do VS/BA have access to those?Jump to post
Polot wrote:US carriers already have 5th freedom rights out of LHR.
There is no way this is happening, but, would BA use it's widebody aircraft for these flights or base narrowbodies over here ?
And can you imagine the look on the faces of the people booked in C/J when they see the Euro business cabin on the narrowbodies.
Well one thing they certainly need to do is find a new FBO "terminal" at LAS! It's very small for the size of the operation they run out of it; it was quite crowded when I was there doing my PHX/LAS/PHX trip back in Oct. They need something like the very large "lounge" they snag...Jump to post
The ships DO have balconies, but they weren't the best selling feature since they were obstructed by the lifeboats. Hence why they added balconies lower in the hull. You've lost me now...

I don't think Level will fold because it is part of IAG. It may not fold, but it could end up consolidated, given the Air Europa acquisition and IAG's frankly confused continental strategy.

Not sure what's going on but LEVEL just recently cancelled ORY-BOS and ORY-LAS before they even started. It almost feels like LEVEL is another Primera: cancelling routes before they even started.
