I have found American to be one of the most consistent airlines as far as service goes. Seems the flight attendants are either in a good mood or at least try to be, and will do as much as possible to make your flight comfortble. STAY AWAY FROM THE BISTRO!!! Just kidding, they are not bad most of the...Jump to post
Jhooper, I have no clue! I agree with B757, that the admin. may just be out on a cloud. Who knows..I am not big into military aircraft, but it seems that a C5 is bigger than a 777 or does it just appear that way?? And B757..CLinton came via Helicopter from Elington, but did have the C5 carrying the ...Jump to post
AF 1 at CLL made a full stop. The tail was like a shark going down the runway as it was easy to see from West campus. I stood outside the library lots for my job and watched planes all the time. And James you are right, I forgot about TSTC.
Mah and Mia, I recently flew SAA in May and was supposed to be on the JNB-CPT-FLL-ATL then noticed it changed. The reps at SAA told me that the FLL leg had been taken out permanetly due to low traffic and the trouble with the FAA. So I would be very surprised to see the FLL leg resume.
JHooper...IT WAS AWESOME!!! It went just fine, takeoff and landing. They just decided on going into Ellington for security reasons from what I heard. The C 5's were a site to see as well, especially on takeoff...Just FYI DC-10's used to fly in pretty regular during football season as charters. JayJump to post
Do not know what they used, but I was working at A&M when the library was dedicated. Air Force One did a trial landing to see how it would work. Awesome sight however they ended up at Ellington field. Also, they brought in 2 C-5A's. Never thought those planes would fit as well. Hopefully they did br...Jump to post
Check out www.flysaa.com..It has the history of the airline. It actually states that the flights were reintroduced in '91 after being banned in '86. So it could have been possible depending on how late in the 80's it happened.
I have an armrest from an American 727. I was sitting in an aisle seat, noticed the armrest was loose and it just came out. Took it off and told the flight attendant when I got on there was not an arm rest. Don't really have that much other stuff.Jump to post
Air France had to be one of the worst airlines I had ever flown. Perhaps they have gotten better in the 5 years since I was last aboard. I flew IAH-CDG, then CDG to Nairobi and return. Flight Attendants rude, food I got sick on, in flight entertainment horrible. Also from CDG to Nairobi, the smoking...Jump to post
Yep, I really share the frustration..People always laugh at me when I get so mad when the plane changes..One example is from Cool Runnnings where the plane is an A-300 leaving Jamaica and then an MD-80 arriving in Canada..Granted AA did not fly from Jaimaca to Canada but it is still annoying...And w...Jump to post
Hello, I flew JNB-VFA and return on SA737-200 in June. The airport in Vic Falls is nice..There are a few shops, a concession area and it is air conditioned. I was actually quite impressed with the airport. Baggage claim is still behind, the bags are just unloaded and placed inside the airport for yo...Jump to post
On May 23rd I left Atlanta on SA 210 nonstop to Capetown on the wonderful 747-400. I was in seat 15C in Business Class. The in flight entertainment was nice with a choice of 10 different movies on the PTV. The seats were very comfortable and could be put in the lie flat configuration if no body was ...Jump to post
Hey, I do not know what it was doing yesterday but I was there last Sunday and it was following me in doing instrument approaches and touch and goes. I used to go to A&M and would watch similar planes come in alot to perform touch and go's...Perhaps they are just training the newest gov't pilots???Jump to post
I'm going ATL-CPT on SAA 747-400, May 22nd
then returning JNB-ATL June 7th
Hello, I have an upcoming trip to Capetown on SAA in May. I am flying business class for there is no way I could stand coach for that long. I would appreciate any info on SAA's business class since this will be my first time to fly with them. I will give a report when I get back. Thanks, J.P.Jump to post
