More annoying to me was I had to request permission each time I wanted to see another family member who was sitted on the opposite aisle. I fly LH long-haul regularly and spend a good portion of the flight in a standing position as I hate sitting for long periods of time. On the A-346 it's quite ea...Jump to post
Thanks for all the answers! Fascinating to see two very different approaches being used depending on the airline's country.

In all my years of air travel, I've never come across flight attendants getting up to disarm doors prior to full aircraft stop / parking position. This past weekend, I was on EasyJet flying Innsbruck - London. After landing, we were taxiing to the gate and before we had even pulled in to the stand, ...Jump to post
It wasn't Russia that elected Trump. :checkmark: The question we should be asking is how on earth do we fix the US educational system so that people are educated enough not to vote for someone like Trump. Precisely. However, that would require smarts, motivation, hard and long work, as well as a si...Jump to post
wow... That you take offence tells me you fall under the "you all" umbrella. Couldn't be any more wrong. I am sensible enough to know not to take offense to posts on a random airline forum. And no, I don't fall under the "you all" umbrella, simply pointing out that a generalizat...Jump to post

Top investigators UNDER OATH have testified UNDER OATH that Russia hacked and messed with our elections. They said that UNDER OATH.

I don't think I'd rank HA the same against others. Island hopping in sunny conditions continuously throughout the day will boost the ratings vs longer stage lengths and more complex airports.

Interesting to see how this will play out. Sukhoi has stated the problem is legitimate, but does not pose a safety threat to passengers. Will mostly likely just need to be swapped out, I guess?Jump to post
Than your guesstimate is a bit off. I don't think his guesstimate is off at all. Having flown both to/from and through KEF more than a few times, that airport is a mess for waiting pax. You mention that things are alright outside of the arrival/departure banks for Icelandair and WOW, well guess wha...Jump to post
That video is mind-blowing. For someone who is drunk and out of it, he had some amazing clearances. Obstacle course cleared! Glad he was caught and that no one was injured, could have been a far, far worse.
Sucks for the airport, hopefully insurance kicks in.

I've flown many a Q400 sector, admittedly 1 hour or less, but I don't really see a 3 hour flight as being "unbearable" in a 2x2 cabin. A three hour flight in a typical 3x3 narrow body is far less comfortable. And sorry, but I don't recall ever thinking it was particularly noisy. Sure you ...Jump to post
Sorry to disagree but THREE hours on a Q400 will be simply miserable. Agreed. I've had to get on close friend terms with the Q400 recently to be able to connect in Vienna or Frankfurt.

Aeroflot will cancel it's 22 787s on order with Boeing and instead rely on the B777 fleet and A350 fleet for long haul flying. Wasn't this announced a long time ago already? No real reason to have both types in the fleet, I think it was ordered this way back in the day for politically motivated nee...Jump to post
Often times the exit rows go unoccupied. I think the modern-day "pay-for-everything" model that airlines have implemented deter people from spending more $$$ and buying an exit row, even if it means extra legroom. On a few of my flights these past few months I've politely asked FAs if I ca...Jump to post
Munich is basically the hub for the wealthy northern part of Italy, since Milan was too dumb to close Linate when they opened Malpensa. That's quite a stretch. It is a very long long drive.

LH has invested a lot in its MUC hub - which gets excellent ratings by travellers, by the way - and the new satellite terminal due to open in April will make it even better. What is this speak of the satellite terminal? Is everyone referring to the second building of Terminal 2 (connected by underg...Jump to post

Looks like they will throw all the LCCs to that airport. The airport situation in Moscow is a mess. It's as bad as London in terms of distance and commute time, but without the organization.
