The quality of exchanges on a.net has really deteriorated in recent years. One suggests that Avianca - a non JV partner of Air Canada, feed Air Canada's long-haul flights out of Vancouver for the benefit of the YVR hub (with a widebody no less), the other says Air Canada Rouge is of poor quality an...Jump to post
Please people, please. No Latin American airline will buy a Chinese aircraft, except for maybe Venezuela, Cuba and Bolivia. China's influence in Latin America is very contested by latino governments, like, Chile rejected a Chinese consortium into building a freight and medium speed railway between S...Jump to post

I do think airline uniforms for men should try to be a bit more 'out there', they all look the same, except for the ties. I like the female rendition, really simple but very nice.Jump to post
I'm sadistically looking forward to Argentina´s aeronautical hunger games,: Aerolíneas/Austral, Latam, Avianca, Lasa, Andes, Flybondi, soon Norwegian and now two more? I wonder how Sky will do, they don't have the deep pockets of Indigo Partners. I'd like to see another Chilean airline take taking o...Jump to post

Fellow geeks, This is my first thread after years enjoying this forum. It's regularly commented here that QF and CX dislike each other a lot, a thing aging from the 1940s. May anyone please detail how and why this has become, and how their mutual loathing is supposedly still very alive. The only thi...Jump to post

I wonder what's the case for LA's 1 weekly SCL-IPC-PPT, TAAG's weekly Luanda-Havana. I can picture TAAG's crew staying in Havana for a week after such a long flight, but a whole week in Papeete for Latam? These airlines serve no other destinations in the vicinity for the crew to serve. Or Latam's cr...Jump to post
This may sound dreamy What about LATAM launch a 2/3x weekly flight to CAY from GRU (or BOG) and advertise the new destination as an alternative to, say, Punta Cana or instead as something completely new? And in Guyana as the only option to reach the rest of the continent and connections to Miami fro...Jump to post
Chilean firms are quite good with social media, Jetsmart & Sky are solid examples and the social media for SCL is very active among its mods and customers alike. near to zero complaints and full of commentators giving positive feedback.Jump to post
As of I know, no traffic rights on LAN ex Miami to Cancún or Punta Cana. I'd say the flight continues to Miami for positioning to serve other flights (red-eye to SCL) while carrying by day a few pax ex SCL via CUN to fill the flight to the gills... or it's either operated by tradition? I mean CUN &a...Jump to post

This will become a bloodbath before long. I can’t see the market supporting that many carriers...probably 4 at most. I predict Andes will fold unless they re-shift their whole ops to charter to miss out the fierce competition and work on a niche instead. Such company doesn't have the pockets to com...Jump to post

So, do you think the public has an unfair view of them Yes. Some people think that they're their servants, others think that they're people on a power trip, and still others think they're there to flirt with. In all cases, I compare them to doctors, lawyers, and cops-- so many people treat them bad...Jump to post

kinda off topic: does a pet ticket cost the same or more than a human? (on average).
