RE: Attn New Zealand Spotters: Royal Visit 2002

ACTUALLY, her plane will be stopping in Papeete, Tahiti, French Polynesia on the 21st of February en route from Jamaica. Her first visit to French Polynesia (I'm surpised it isn't Rarotonga where she'll be stopping at).. The story is at: www.tahiti1.com/en/details/tht_details.asp?news_id=162

Mexicana 777?

Just looking at a Mexicana ad promoting Mexico in the latest edition of 'Conde Nast Traveler' and there is a pic at the bottom of what appears to be a large Mexicana aircraft in flight. It looks like a 777 to me. Do they have these? or Are they just 'doctoring' up a pic to make it look like they hav...

RE: Western Airlines DC-10: History

They also serviced Ft. Lauderdale from Miami as well (LAX-MIA-FLL). Also I believe they served Hilo also as Kona was not the major airport then. They were also used on SFO from LAX on the continuation of MEX-LAX-SFO and SFO-SLC originating in HNL (and vice versa). THe JFK flights in 1984 were LAX-SL...

RE: Best Airline To Calcutta?

Aeroflot DOES fly to SFO. Why don't you just fly BA SFO-LHR-Calcutta. It doesn't matter which way you go (perhaps due to amount of time in air), but what YOU want to get out of the journey. Personally I would rather fly via Europe and that is just MY opinion although it is probably a little fast via...

What was it I read a few years ago in some fashion magazine about f/a uniforms throughout the ages, I think it was something like: Alitalia's Armani designed uniforms evoke a 'get your own damn pillow" attitude.

RE: What Do You Think About Transatlantic 757 Service?

Personally I don't agree with the phrase "it's not the a/c, it's the pitch". As earlier posters have said, there definately is a psychological effect to a wider and taller a/c. In all fairness, I think this really is a personal opinion and we all have personal opinions to what we find comfortable an...

RE: Corsair A380 With 800 Seats

it may sound like a lot of seats, but the big difference is that they only have a "business class" in the upper deck, and on the lower, what would be reserved for first and business, is all economy layout all the way up to the pointy area up front! Since their cabins are "separated", you really don'...

Ever Notice Everyone Is Quiet During Take Off?

I don't think I've been on a flight where the cabin was not totally quiet (ie. nobody talking) during take off (from roll down to lift off). Am I the only one who notices this? Everybody mostly just staring forward or out the window, but no talking! Why do you think this might be? A realization of h...

Why did SAS drop this service and when? What a/c did they fly there up to the end? I know one of their DC-8's crashed into the Pacific Ocean on approach in the late 60's (from copenhagen-seattle-lax), but did they ever fly their 747's to LAX (I remember seeing their DC10's there)? I know they flew t...

RE: Local Coffeee Vs. Starbucks

I think it actually depends on WHO is making the coffee. Starbucks is a major chain and is really not the definitive voice of coffee. I've been to Seattle and find "Seattle's Best" much better. In SF, Peets or Pasqua (which was bought out by starbucks), or Caffee Trieste or Royal Ground is far super...
