Re: Air France-KLM Wants to Change KL CEO

I always avoid KLM at any price, the food is just so untasty, almost junk food. And the seat pitch, just a nightmare. Easyjet is even better for the seats. I have to agree with this somehow. I fly both KLM and AF on short hauls and long hauls (on business class). AF is far better in long haul cater...

Re: EVA - Why such limited service to Oceania?

I am not an expert but I think a lot of Asian airlines (CX/SQ and even CI) use their hubs for Europe-OZ routes. Issue with BR is most of its European flights stop over at Bangkok so even if they fly direct from Oceania to Taipei they are not able to transfer passengers non stop to Europe. China Airl...

Re: Finnair long haul routes

Re: Airbus Claims that A350XWB is quieter than B787, but is it really?

Ive flown both A350 and B787 few times in different classes. In general 350 is quieter and the flight was smooth - I didn't even need my noise canceling headphone when I was sleeping. Also in general I had less jet lag with A350 but 787 is also a very good airplane. However if traveling in economy I...

Re: EVA Air: Skytrax 5-Star Airline

I fly BR regularly as I visit Bangkok and Taipei often. The only reason I fly with them is they provide direct flight to Bangkok and it's cheap. BR is a pleasant airline I will rank it 4+. The plane is always clean, the service smooth, nothing is too much trouble for them. However the whole experien...
