RE: When Did Thomas Cook Start Flying To YYZ?

Condor has been taking over some of <acronym title="Lufthansa (Germany)">LH</acronym>'s flights to N.America, such as Phoenix, Atlanta, and Phili I believe. <acronym title="Toronto - Lester B.

RE: 777 In Latinamerican Airliners

Big oops, and my appologies to everyone. For some reason the word Hispanic was imbeded in my mind when I made the previous comment that Brazil was not a Latin American country.

RE: Lufthansa To Order B-777?

It wouldn't be a terrible surprise if they bought the 777 to be operated by Condor which currently has 757's and 767's, and given that Condor is increasingly taking over so many of LH's medium-haul routes.

RE: Why Isn't There Any PTV On Air Canada?

PTV's are overated and airlines are finding out that hardly anyone chooses a flight based on the availability (or not) of PTVs. In fact, when all things are equal I'll choose the one without PTVs 'cause I value the leg room a lot more than mediocre entertainment.

I expect that there will be no "major" airlines as we know today. Most airlines will have a niche of their own but there won't be an airline that caters to everyone and everything.

Denver. No amount of bad weather seems to stop it - except that one time  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Relatively short walks, no need to switch terminals (unless you're using different airlines). Spacious terminals. Lots of seating. Good views.

The erosion of privacy has come and gone in Europe. It's not as big an issue as it is in the US mainly because Europeans have far less distrust towards their governments than Americans, and rightly so.

I think you'll see supersonic flights very shortly but not for the masses. Business jets like the Gulfstream and Learjet will eventually be built to accomodate whatever demand it exists for supersonic flights.

You don't need it in the US? Am sure you need it.

In the USA there is no requierment to carry an ID on you.

There is when you fly, and that's what we're talking about here.
