RE: Europe To USA, Which Airline Does It Best?

None give you your money's worth - transatlantic premium class fares are simply absurd - just remember that for an $8K roundtrip fare you are subsidizing quite a few leisure travelers. The best premium product by far is <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> Club World on the upper deck on a ...

RE: So, How Was Pan Am?

I've flown PanAm as well as PAA, in the days when they used to give out the cool cabin cases. Pan Am defined the ultimate flying experience, no wonder Kubrick thought fit to feature them in '2001'. The cabin crew was sophisticated and very jet-set, as was the management on Park Avenue. Unfortunately...

RE: If Indian A.netters Were To Start An Airline

The best name would be '<acronym title="Hot Springs - Memorial Field (HOT / KHOT), USA - Arkansas">HOT</acronym> AIR', reflecting t/o conditions in India. The flagship (ship#1) could be christened "Hindustan Ambassador" out of respect for a form of transportation cherished by one and all, without fe...
