Re: Ethiopian cancels Barcelona after less than two months of operations

[threeid][/threeid] Ehh...I would prefer the rumored ADD-ACC-IAH route, that way IAH gets back into the ‘Six Continent Club’. IAH would get into the 6 continent club even if Africa ADD flight is routed via Europe. Unless, it has to be a non-stop flight. Bear in mind that ADD to IAH via some airport...

I love Portugal, made many visits during my years in the UK, sadly, though it has been a while since my last visit in '00'. While not likely to happen in my lifetime, I would definitely like to see an IAH-LIS run, though I suspect seeing snow in Houston during July is more likely.
