Re: Uzbekistan Airways Business Class to London (modern 767 and vintage 757)

Fantastic! I'm obsessed with this livery...especially on the TU154s in comparison to the B787s. Such an unusual airline and route, and brilliantly written, so enjoyable, thank you! :)

Re: Biz Class on Budget: Regent Airways and Biman Bangladesh (CCU-DAC-CGP-DXB)

I I loved the attention to the architecture and your report was very enjoyable to read. I've never heard of Regent & isn't it vintage to get a 737-800 without winglets?! i find it hard to understand that an airline with First class doesn't even have magazine but maybe something happened that day...

Re: Charter. The Russian way. Ural Airlines. DME-HER

Interesting report on an airline that is exotic to me. The only time I ever saw one of their a/c was at CGN. I wonder did the crew wake up and cheer up at all later in the flight. At least you got a sambo. And I love Crete, I went there on my first foreign holiday with friends in 2003 :) on an A300
