GAG. He best not Walmartize this airline; too many or American taxpayers’ dollars go to provide welfare benefits for too many of their employees while they refuse to pay a living wage or provide proper benefits.Jump to post
Looks like MAD is not as much of a high-yielding, high-traffic market as its fanboys make it out to be. Precisely Iberia is competing successfully with Norwegian in pretty much all those routes (including BOS and LAX). It seems the market is willing to pay a premium for a higher yield legacy carrie...Jump to post

SAN-SBP is already well served by Amtrak. Not sure who’ll fly this route who isn’t connecting. Those who would choose not to drive would be better off taking the train. That train service is garbage. Don't forget the ghetto stop at LA Union station. It's one thing to do San Diego - LA but all the w...Jump to post
Guessing you're not familiar with West Coast train travel. San Diego - Santa Fe Depot to San Luis Obispo: 8 hours, 31 minutes I live in SoCal and I very much am familiar. Then you should know that an hour and change flight even with security is not the same as a 8 plus hours. Those are not competit...Jump to post

I must also add that my budget is limited to only flying budget airlines so I'm afraid Cape Verde and anywhere not served by my friends Easyjet, Ryanair, etc. is out of the questionJump to post
What nationality is the OP? That might go a long way towards pointing them which countries to perhaps avoid. If American (as the word school for university seems to indicate) it might be best to give Egypt a miss. As a westerner, it's a place to avoid generally (for both safety and philosophical po...Jump to post

The other Canaries, eg ACE, FUE should also have the right weather, FNC can be good at that time of year too Didn't even think of FNC! There are even direct BSL-FNC flights!

Hi, KL1302: Toulouse - Amsterdam was canceled today - August 10th -. My sister and family were supposed to be on that flight. Does anybody know why it was canceled? She will leave tomorrow so all is well, just an extra day in France. Don't know how it was handled by KLM, if she's got a hotel and co...Jump to post

First of all, there is nothing wrong with that lady’s outfit and anyone who thinks otherwise can go back to the 50s with their “standards of dress.” So, "my way or the highway"? What are you doing on a discussion forum then? Because I like planes and am interested in travel and the busine...Jump to post

There is not a "big gap" in Italy. The Bay Area has service to Milan (for now, I can't imagine Air Italy stays around for long) and Rome. That's excellent. Though like most large U.S. cities these days, SFO is grossly over-served trans-Atlantic, and all airlines are fighting for a piece o...Jump to post
Ugh. Misogyny at its worst.Jump to post
Hardly surprising. I'm sure very few people in Europe want to fly into OAK and then schlep into the city. What flights does Norwegian still have at Oakland? And do people think they will keep those, or eventually move everything to SFO? Actually I don't think there's any schlepping involved at OAK....Jump to post
Flights out of SCQ can be quite asymmetric in general. A lot of passengers are pilgrims/tourists that will be fly into elsewhere (MAD, OPO, BIO) and walk to Santiago, then fly out of SCQ. BLQ is not a tourist destination for Americans. They go Italy’s big guns: Rome, Venice, Florence/Pisa/Tuscany a...Jump to post
BLQ is not a tourist destination for Americans. They go Italy’s big guns: Rome, Venice, Florence/Pisa/Tuscany and to a lesser extent Milan and Campania. It’s a truly underrated Italian city but also truly authentic and hopefully it stays that way. And the surrounding area is interesting for those in...Jump to post

I found it relatively cheap, not like Greece or the south of Spain but still inexpensive. Honestly I found Malaga and Alicante much less culturally interesting than Malta; those two places offer sun, sand, sea and little else. They probably never left Sliema or St. Julian's which are exactly the ov...Jump to post
It's purely just a shell company to facilitate the transfer. I doubt it is only about that. Air Malta is small government-owned airline that does not turn a profit. The government of Malta already subsidies Ryanair. Air Malta sells their flights in Ryanair's website. Interestingly, Air Malta and Ry...Jump to post
I'm happy to see Malta getting more attention and flights. I (American) visited the country in April and absolutely loved it.

Malta Air? Couldn't come up with a more creative name and not confuse the average traveling Joe? I'm happy to see Malta getting more attention and flights.

My condolences to our Canadian friends. They may as well have law enforcement nearby when the Spirit flight arrives. There is sure to have been an onboard altercation.

Might be useful and there's certainly a fair amount of business traffic, but the OW stranglehold certainly impacts things. Also, the Houston to Dallas train will have a lot of Spanish input, but the project office is in Fort Worth. Still this proves well that there is only one market in Spain :). N...Jump to post
O&D passengers Europe-LIS/OPO are of course more likely to use LCCs because duh, low fares. TP's focus these days isn't so much O&D Portugal-rest of Europe traffic as it is transfer traffic between the Americas and Europe. Let them succeed. The market is simply regulating itself due to capac...Jump to post
