Re: A very good and interesting interview with the ceo of Norwegian

I don't think removing IFE would be a very negative impact, since almost everyone brings a tablet/laptop with them and can use the streaming service Almost everyone? Maybe business travelers. But if you consider those who are on a vacation trip, I don't think that more than 10% of them travel with ...

Re: Asking to raise/lower window shades

No, "blocking the light" with your body simply does not work. Alas, I was a big "I've got the window seat and I'm going to look outside gosh-darn it!" guy for many years but after 2000 commercial flights I've come to realize that A) Ive got plenty of time to see the scenery over...

Re: Bombardier delivers first CSeries to Swiss

Officially (or usually), what event is the formal date of delivery of a plane?
Because if it's its arrival in ZRH, then the delivery date will be July 1st... That's 2016 second semester, and one more delay for the CSeries ! ;)

Re: CS300 vs NEO or MAX on CASM

The CS300 doesn't compete with the 737 MAX-8 or A320neo, but what about 737-7 & A319?
A CS300 at max capacity seats 160 pax. Same for an A319. And a 2-class typical CS300 seats 130 pax, versus 124 for an A319.

Lugano (LUG) - Sion (SIR) with Etihad Regional: spectacular views over the Alps!

This is a short trip report of my flight from Lugano (LUG) to Sion (SIR), June 26th, flight F728 (Etihad Regional). I'm posting it because, regarding the view over the Alps, it was my best commercial flight ever! We were 13 people on a Saab 2000 (50 seats). The flightpath was spectacular, as we flew...
