Re: Collecting miles in Y class for a leisure traveller, worth it?

You can look for a credit card that gives you points which can be converted into airline miles. That would enable you to accumulate miles faster If you are fortunate to be in a position where you are able (and disciplined enough) to pay off the balance every month, this is great advice. I put EVERY...

Re: Proposed Essential Air Service elimination

DEN serves 20 mountain and rural communities with EAS subsidised routes. Some of those have more than 1 flight a day. Some of the more populated destinations (Cody, WY etc.) get United Express. Others get a PC12 etc with carriers like Boutique Air. You can pick up a ticket from DEN to the San Luis V...

Re: Spotting A318 in California?

My one and only flight on a 318 was 4 years ago, just a few months before Frontier scrapped all its 318's.

N318FR. Stu the Rabbit.

Frustratingly for this thread..... The flight was from DEN-SAN.

Re: Winter Schedules

Just did a quick search on AA.com based on a mid Dec 2017 flight from SYD to ORD, and a return to SYD in early January 2018.

Flights are up on the site and available to be booked.

All would be good.

But from a selfish point of view: DEN-MAN (ideally UA) would save me some significant time and hassle.

Obviously never going to happen, but I'd even take TK using MAN as a stop between DEN and IST.

Re: 2016 Airport PAX numbers thread

DEN

58,266,515 million passengers in 2016 (up 7.9% on 2015).

Much of the increase is being attributed to people visiting Denver, rather than simply connecting. Either way, good news.

Re: BA Award Fees

The (slightly) redeeming factor for me is the companion ticket benefit through the BA Chase card. While BA remains the only direct option between DEN-LHR, I'll pay the piper. But once our daughter is old enough to handle connections, and/or UA bring back a flight from DEN to the UK (fat chance), I'l...

Re: Possible take over of InselAir by Avianca

It looks like that there will only be two airlines left in South America: LATAM and Avianca. And then COPA being the distant third. COPA has dipped its toe into Colombia. Wonder if it is interested to go further than that. May be soon there will be SA3, along with US3, ME3 and EU3. Don't forget AR ...

Not really a surprise given Boeing's existing investment and involvement with Sheffield University's Advanced Manufacturing Research facility.

Re: Norweigen and the Detroit market.

Genuine question - why would they be looking at Detroit over many other North American destinations? Michigan has some beautiful spots, but I can't imagine it's very high on the list for European holiday makers/ budget travelers. I think I'm correct in saying there are currently no direct flights be...

RAF Finningley (now Robin Hood Sheffield-Doncaster) was destroyed in a nuclear attack in the 1984 movie Threads.

As Robin Hood Airport, it also featured in 4 Lions.

Re: Paying extra Money for Seating??

Yeah. I've just been stung over $300 by BA to reserve 3 seats on a DEN-LHR return. I say stung. I was fully aware at the time of booking, but with a young child my wife insists that we travel direct. And as UA scrapped its DEN-LHR route years ago, BA is the only direct option. So I feel stung. As so...

Re: Reason for your Favourite aircraft bias?

I have a strong bias toward any passenger jet with two seats next to the window in Economy. A330/A340 and upstairs on A380 pretty much. I've never flown on a 767 - hope to catch one before they're all gone. Ditto those rare 787s that have 8-abreast seating. This. If I'm flying alone to Europe, I tr...
