Quoting Airbuseric (Reply 1):
the rich part of the EU is paying for these countries.

For example France gets incredible amount of money from EU's agricultural donations, despite only 60 million people live there (almost 103 million people live in the new member countries, excluding Cyprus and Malta) but who cares? France is an old-EU country... We also give money to EU, it's not just the old "rich" countries. We live in a member country but we can't work freely in most of the old countries. Why? 'Cause we're a "danger for the labor market"... Ask them for example in Ireland if we're a "danger". We didn't close our labor market to people from Romania and Bulgaria, even though they're poorer countries and joined the EU later. Why should we ban them from working here??? Both countries are a part of the EU and I think all countries should have the same rights inside it. I'm quite dissappointed with the outlook on the new members by some of the old ones.

Great report Nicckbu,

As I am working in Romania for 4 years, unfortunately I am still getting shocked on some things. That F/A was exactly a stupid !

My last flight was also on TAROM from IST to OTP on an ATR 42-500 YR-ATC last monday (27/08/07).
I always prefer TK but for this time it was full and I didn't want to stop my holiday on sunday and I chose TAROM.
It was my first time on an ATR and it was an interesting experience for me. My seat was 4A like yours and I think it is good to sit near the engines  Smile
Normal it is 55 minutes by a 737 or A320 but it took 1,25 hrs on ATR. My cam was with me but I think I made a good choice by not taking any pictures  Smile

At Otopeni the stupid police asked me where I was coming from even he has a screen near him. He checked my staying permit for more than usual. After I got my luggage on the exit hall again the police stopped me to ask what I have in my bag. I said I am not a toursit I have factory (am fabrica  Smile ) and this time he was shocked  Smile

Unfortunately Romania has still some people with communist mantelaty  Sad

Hi Koosi,
Thank you for your reply, which is indeed all too familiar around Central and Eastern Europe.
Unfortunately the image of all these countries, including mine, is still quite a bad one among the so-called richer nations of old-EU. This negative image is slowly but surely transforming, but it will take some time…

Unfortunately yes.
