Hey hey hey CanainUK! Well, you normally receive crappy service on US Scareways transatlantic service, so, you may as well see what the hell the disenchanted FAs are doing anyways!!! I beg to differ... my experience on US Airways from the US to the UK was absolutely GREAT last September!! A nice A33...Jump to post
That guy with the "damaged" bag was borderline racist for referring the staff as "these people"!!! Clearly he had no intention of listening to ANYTHING the African American women at that counter had to say. He said it on more than one occasion I loved it when the Supervisor presented herself and SHE...Jump to post
Thank you everyone that posted a response! I just thought maybe the press got their facts wrong again. A return 4 hours into the flight? <acronym title="CSA Czech Airlines">OK</acronym>..

Goingboeing .. You are absolutely right, that's why I prefaced my statement by saying Southwest isnt that visible in the North East. Perception can be a Mutha, so can 1st impressions!

I finally caught up with this series... lemme just say this.

I can only answer as a passenger since my 15 hrs in my logbook from my Cessna 175 days won't make me an expert!

Despite all the bitch slapping going on about US military usage of certain aircrafts, if I was on the upper deck of that flight and glanced out my window and saw that jet, I think I would be seriously crapping my shorts. I'm not so sure If I would even consider it reassuring, but that's just me 2 ce...Jump to post
My first airline flight was a solo at 11.

I go out of my way to see if I can get on a 747.

I actually thought initially we should have rebuilt them ASAP just they way they were. That just seemed the badass NY/American way to do it. Even former Mayor Koch said as much, he even went on to say it should be rebuilt even higher. Now we seem mired in this bureaucratic mess of a fight between wa...Jump to post
The British will go out of their way to appear on the same page with the US, so that aspect of the dispute will be resolved eventually.
Other foreign carriers need to tread lightly on this, terrorism or the potential threat of terrorism is not going to be negotiated away due to Nationalistic pride!
This has been a developing soap opera for a few days now, but I just read that not only is Thomas Cook and South African refusing to comply with sky marshals, South African says it will simply cancel <acronym title="Albenga (Villanova d'Albenga) (- Clemente Panero) (ALL / LIMG), Italy">ALL</acronym>...Jump to post

Hey Bruno.. I wasn't doing a comparison between the Corvette and the Mustang, I was just commenting on ANOTHER redesigned American icon car.

Yea the Corvette is an improvement, but what the hell is Ford doing to the new Mustang, what an ugly piece of machinery.
They simply rebadged an older version and not a pretty one neither!
Thank you all or your answers...It cleared up this muddier issues of the charter industry. It still think it's strang it doesnt work here in the US or have been attempted. I do think a part of it is the much shorter vacation schedule here in the US. You lucky Europeans get damn near a month off a ye...Jump to post
In my travels to Europe I have noticed a sizeable charter industry. My question is... what comes first? Do they sell the destination, and then based on the number of tix sold, then offer/supply a charter flight? Is the charter industry only travel agent run and supported? And finally, why does it se...Jump to post

BA all the way... If you're like most passengers and have to actually pay for your tickets, getting an upgrade may not be so easy to come by, so I base my opinion on Economy class travel. Virgin's pitch in coach is horrendous for anyone over 5ft 9ins or so. Coupled with the fact that <acronym title=...Jump to post
