Ew no thanks, I’ll fly a real airline .
Ok, I’m in a mood today as Mrs VS. is in surgery so I will bite. What by your standards constitutes a real airline?
Essentially all airlines are the same, they all take you from A to B 99% of the time (cue B6 OTP complaints) , you pick the flight time you want, show up at the airport and away you go.
The only main difference is the customer service and what you pay for with your ticket and ancillaries.
Sounds like you want everyone to be a BA J or F customer where you are pampered and not a PF customer who is looking to get simply from A to B.
Now I know PF have had their challenges, BHX was a disaster, but I have suspicions there were bigger issues there than not selling enough tickets. But let’s not forget the heady days of DY starting out and their issues (still have some if you read the threads)
So I ask again, what is the definition of a “real” airline, as either way they have to physically exist to fly and please just don’t say it’s BA, or UA or LH as examples, because they have interlines and IRROPS procedures, as most people outside of a.net and the industry won’t give 2 hoots (Europe is already protected for delays) because if you are authorized to fly from point a to b with a MAX, you have the crew and the passengers, what exactly is the difference? I am genuinely curious.
That feeling when you sit at the end of a runway, brakes are released and the raw power takes over. Now that is a thing of beauty and it never gets old.
