I just booked a friend in Harare a flight to get out of there. I suggested yesterday that he book to get out today (the 15th), but he wanted to see how things shake out. I don't know how the situation is around the airport, but flights seem to be operating out of the country. From what I am told, th...Jump to post
It's a fun airport to fly in and out of, or to watch people fly in and out of. I used to live in Salzburg's Moosstraße, near the flight path, and Saturdays in Winter would include any number of flights, from Transaero 744s to Austrian F70s. I feel sorry for the people on the flight, though. Between ...Jump to post

CMH-ORD-OKC: $1000 voucher and morning confirmed F on UA from ORD-OKC.
I was finally able to get United to give me a dummy booking with LH Premium Economy seating on the TATL portions and at the same price as LH.com. But I went through Google Flights and not United.com. I just wish UA would enable that as an option while searching. Previously, it would give you UA firs...Jump to post

I've only ever flown LH's premium economy, but it's pretty great. Especially if you're willing and able to pay the $600 to bump yourself up to Business (eg on FRA-IAD).
Even without paying for a bump, it's excellent, I've slept very well on ORD/IAH-FRA/MUC on the 748, A380, and A346.
The plan was:
but what happened was:
Missconnects in VIE, FRA, and IAD
Tech stop in Boston because our 748 had a landing gear sensor malfunction.
LH took good care of us though, nice hotels in FRA and IAD.
Is there anyway to book a LH premium economy ticket on a United issued ticket?
I've tried fiddling with the United booking engine, but nothing. If I try to book via a third party site, I'd get LH issued tickets with LH codes.
I'm trying to figure out how to get the PQDs without paying for business.

Just for consolidation purposes, could someone list the current United Regional capacity purchase agreements?

I've changed flights and trains in MUC 20+ times, but I've only ever spent a couple hours in the city itself.
So, buying a ticket for a job interview and the option to buy an "extra" checked bag. Now, the question is: is this just pre-paying for the checked bag I would pay $2 more for at the airport? If so, why not just call it "Add a checked bag" or something similar? It just seems like...Jump to post
I assume the shortsightedness of King County people accounts for the light rail, new 520 bridge, waterfront tunnel (which I'm personally a huge proponent of getting rid of the viaduct), trolleys and other infrastructure development. Not sure where you get that. Because light rail, eg, should have b...Jump to post
I can't find reliable info on OKC "in-terminal international gate / F.I.S.", is there any? One could expect a demand for OKC-CUN and perhaps OKC-MEX. Currently no. This expansion will accommodate that. Was there any serious talk about an FIS? Or was it "maybe Allegiant wants to do a ...Jump to post

Hello, OKC is currently undergoing an addition and renovation that will add four gates and reconfigure the security checkpoint. How many flights are operated by each airline?

why would anyone really want to take over AZ? If Italy reverts to the Lira, which is increasingly likely, Alitalia becomes a lower cost airline and its current debt a fraction of today's value.

We've had this discussion 1000 times before. The problem is that Gatwick is seen as being too far away to be a reasonable alternative.
