Sharia means following the 5 elements of ISLAM and following the law of the land you are at !!!

This is a retaliaton on AV starting nonstop flights from BOG. I wonder if AV can sustain their BOG flight if most of their feed will use LATAM via GRU. A388 You do realize that GRU and BOG are separated by a distance roughly comparable to that existing between LAX and JFK? Who would they be competi...Jump to post
There is practically no business traffic between Vancouver and Bangkok, and bargain hunting leisure travelers have a lot of low cost choices flying via ICN, TPE, HKG or even PEK and PVG. They most likely would not mind waiting at those airport for 2 or 3 hrs for the connection if it means saving a ...Jump to post
Definitely they make it to Barcelona too late. Both EK and QR offer double daily frequencies and meanwhile, many other Asian competitors which may reduce the connecting traffics have started BCN routes (Korean, Cathay, etc.), so let's see what's left for Etihad here. Once Etihad deploy the daily fl...Jump to post
i think this thread summarizes my island San Andres a beautiful place but such a mess . i mean damn no need to get heated about it. in conclusion local government has no desire to develop the island they are happy with how it is they haven't done anything to change the situation even though they cla...Jump to post
The fact is San Andres is ugly. Ugly infrastructure, ugly hotels (not a single four or five star hotel there) and lots of corruption. The beaches are beautiful (a bit dirty) but that's it. There are a few charter flights from YUL operated by Air Transat every year. I've been there and I promised to...Jump to post
Are you sure it is really 800,000 international tourists? Seems to me like that would be the right figure for the total number of tourists, most of whom are Colombian, of course. And I wouldn't exactly call San Andrés unspoiled. It's a small island with over 100,000 inhabitants. You are never far f...Jump to post
In Brazil we no longer argue with the airlines anymore, we just sue ASAP!

Is every LCC going to have an offshoot in Austria? If the taxes there are so low that everyone wants to be there then we should all move in.

Two years ago, on a vacation trip to Southern Italy the return leg of our flight from LIRN to EDDF was cancelled without prior notice, resulting in missing our connection to JFK, and then forcing us to rebook our flight on a different carrier via EGLL arriving home two days later than scheduled. We...Jump to post

i don't understand the bash against IB i flew with recently to GIG and they were good except for the fact that their check in agent told me i don't have to check my luggage again in GRU but when Latam refused to deliver my luggage from gru tp gig i tweeted IB and they solved the issue for me quicklyJump to post
Out of subject but what happened to their new livery ?Jump to post
I think they should try and form an alliance/airline group within the gulf with Oman and Etihad to try and broaden their region's appeal. That way they could divvy up the routes a bit more, add more frequency options in markets they all serve, reduce services in marginal markets they all serve to i...Jump to post
the sanctions are in place because they transfer military personnel and weapons.
aren't they currently flying though ? according to wiki they fly to saudi and uae not sure about it though ..
i don't understand the point of this airport . it's not really needed they should've just expanded CAI insteadJump to post
If it comes to fruition, I wish TK good luck. They will need it. If they start SJO, I sincerely hope they will change the PTY stop on the BOG route to be in SJO instead. Or even better, change CCS for SJO. And not open a new route to Latin America. Anyone has LF numbers or PAX numbers to/ from CCS,...Jump to post

I think it is anybody's guess right now. Financially, TK is the one making poor business at CCS, as far as I can tell. Loads are bad and yields are just now picking up somewhat. But maybe they are less risk aversive than the rest? And neither IB nor TP crews are overnighting in CCS anymore, so the ...Jump to post
If you haven't them in 25 years, your opinion of the carrier and its level of service should probably be taken with a grain of salt. Except for the fact that Transat is well known for having aircraft with a minimal amount of legroom and not known for their quality of service. It is a well-documente...Jump to post

So what does this mean for FedEx, UPS, and other air freight services? Doesn't Qatar get a lot of food flown in on freighters? I guess they'll run out of fresh fish like tuna in just a few days time.

Yes. There, and elsewhere. There are even reports of this happening on the highway between Caracas and La Guaira, going to CCS.
