RE: Westjet To Offer Temp Flights From YVR-YYJ

Pardon my ignorance, but how much does the ferry usually cost between Vancouver & Victoria? I know it's not a direct service (Tsawassen to ?), so does this work out to a good deal when you factor in the fuel/time to get to the ferry terminal from the respective cities?

RE: Something Good - Feeling Of Being A Valued Cus

When I was a young kid, our family were on a <acronym title="United Airlines (USA)">UA</acronym> domestic flight. It's been so long that I can't remember where we were going or coming from, but we lived in Dayton, Ohio at the time. Anyway, it was around Christmas time and what happened was that ther...

For what it's worth and because no one really has news regarding this, I was at <acronym title="Portland - International (PDX / KPDX), USA - Oregon">PDX</acronym> this morning and saw that the extra counter space they had (to the left of the <acronym title="Mexicana Airlines (Mexico)">MX</acronym> &...

RE: Finally!LH Starts Daily MUC-CLT * PVG Cont.To

Am I correct in assuming that this is CLT's first intercontinental service by a non-American airline?

RE: Things You Hate To See

I hate when people open their window shade when it's light out during a long-haul flight, thereby ruining the illusion that it's night for the rest of us. It drives me bonkers, it really does.

RE: Flights Replaced By High Speed Trains

The Chinese government is investing a lot of money into a new high speed rail line to go between Beijing & Shanghai. I don't know if the government is looking at a goal of eliminating air services between the two cities, but surely they're looking at a reduction of air services. I don't have the spe...
