RE: Matches Banned On US Bound Flights

If you would read the CNN article, it tells you that the ban is mandated by the new intelligence reform bill passed by congress and signed by you know who. <acronym title="Taipei - Sung Shan (TSA / RCSS), Taiwan">TSA</acronym> does not come up with this stuff, it only enforces and carries out what i...

Is that an Icelandair 752? Why isn't a Star partner operating that flight for <acronym title="British Midland">BD</acronym>?

RE: Independence Air To Continue To Expand West

They would definitely have the advantage of flying people to major hubs and give them easy international connections compared to <acronym title="JetBlue Airways (USA)">B6</acronym>. However, I'm not sure if that alone would fill up more of their seats. If my final destination was the west coast I'd ...

RE: LOT: Make Up Your Mind!

I have to agree with JoFMO, there is no relationship between EU membership and Airbus. MALEV, for instance, does not have a single Airbus aircraft and never had any before. They just finished updating their fleet with 16 736/7/8NGs in the last 2 years. It made sense for MALEV tho because when they s...

UK, I would only choose a star alliance itinerary if it's significantly cheaper.

As a connecting passanger on <acronym title="British Midland">BD</acronym> ...

RE: ATA Military Shuttles Through BUD

Airbrasil and Clipper002 thanks for your info. It's nice to see some folks on here with common sense, objectivity and without blowing things out of proportion. I think my request may pose as much danger to those military flights as an immediate threat Saddam was to the US. And no wonder people belie...

RE: ATA Military Shuttles Through BUD

ANCFlyer, The only term that comes to my mind is "reading comprehension". Read my original post again and you realize that the word "schedule" is not in there. Nor my request for such detailed information. By frequency I meant an approximate number of times per week or month these flights operate. B...

RE: Skylink Airways To IAD?

Thanks for the scoop SpyLink. Whatever is your business model, it's always refreshing to see new airlines with innovative products and services. I think there would be a great niche for non-legacies (LCC or charter) to finally move into transatlantic service on a larger scale. I'm looking forward to...

Skylink Airways To IAD?

I was browsing the job classified in the Washington Post and there was an ad for various positions for the same airline. After reading it, the airline turned out to be Skylink Airways. When I checked their website there was virtually no information posted about the company, but it seems like a UK (<...
