RE: Lufthansa Replaces Viscount With 737-500

Remember, Lufthansa is the airline that was generous enough and conscious of its own history to pay to build a brand new hangar in Maine that is currently being used to restore a Lockheed L-1649 Constellation that is, IMHO, the most beautful aircaft ever built. Specialists from Lufthansa Technik are...

RE: UA, DL And Hawaiian Service From OAK

Another thing is that west coast-Hawaii flights are heavily discounted. Since Hawaii is primarily a leisure destination rather than a business market that would attract high value customers, I have heard that no one really makes any money on them but they are stuck flying them for competitive reason...
