Re: Passenger takes video of JFK bag smasher

They don't care for your bags etc, there on a time limit etc. The proper way is just to slide the stroller down the slide, vs throwing it etc recklessly. Luckily i never seen on any flight I flown that I could observe. I have seen such incidents for other flights, I also seen UA agent left a bag on ...

Re: Future Toronto Pearson YYZ Routes

If Air Canada Rouge has some 787, I could see them flying to Islamabad or Lahore. With Saudia gone, PIA might benefit from reduced competition, I know Saudia was a popular route people took to Pakistan. PIA can easily go to the 77W to make up for it. Not sure AC or any Canadian carrier would try th...

Re: Next Non-US BA Longhaul Destination?

Not sure why they don't serve Dammam already, I am sure they use too. Though they serve Bahrain. LH and KL serve both DMM, and BAH. They definitely served DHA in the 80s and 90s from LGW. The route to DMM (which replaced DHA) was cut after 9/11. BMI resurrected the route in the mid-2000s (from LHR)...

Re: Should I book a flight on PK for the nostalgia?

only issue I see is maybe, AA won't tag you bags straight to PK. You might have to pick up your bags at JFK recheck them in. Do the same when returning from PK. Which means you will have to pay maybe $70 for both bags on AA or DL, plus the hassle to recheck them etc
