RE: Gulf Traveller Adds Economy Plus

If passengers get an extra 10% legroom, that now means that they would get 36.3inches, and still a 2-3-2 layout. Seems a bit stingy if you ask me.

RE: How Do Pax Get To These Gates At LAX?

So do passengers get a bus to the gate, go upstairs to a departure lounge, and then board normally through an air bridge?

Also, how long does the bus ride take? It is quite a long way from the main terminals.
