Cathay Pacific has Cathay City for all of the non-HKG based crews. At least a few years ago when I was there last, they even had different "hours" (for things like housekeeping) on different floors so that crew could stay as close to their home time as possible for least impact on body clo...Jump to post

I'm not aware of diversions being a common thing. It's fairly common for aircraft to be held, either on the ground or circling above, for a short amount of time as AF1 comes in/goes out, but they honestly tend to take care of that pretty quickly.

How on earth does this happen? What was the limo driver doing 100mph? Even at 60 mph you couldn't have had this much loss of life. It's incredible.

AA's PIT-RDU and FLL-PAP* routes always struck me as the most unusual in their network *I know the route is being discontinued soon.

Pretty common at the main gateways in/out of the US.

I'll give them number 3 - they need to make up an airline for a show like this - an airline based in Jamaica flying to the US is not some unheard of thing, and while a 737-200 is improbable, it isn't out of the realm of possibility. Also, "what, if any, foreign-flagged carriers flew regularly ...Jump to post

Interestingly I don't think Southwest is as cheap as it used to be. Maybe not, but their prices in California are pretty good. It is not hard to find $50-60 o/w fares LAX-SFO.

Coughing and experiencing high temperature seems like air born transmitted disease. If it is food poisoning coming from say 1 out of 3 main courses, why only 10 people?

Does FI provide J passengers with any kind of lounge access at MCI? No, they do not. I don't believe there are any lounges in general at MCI any longer.
