Re: IBERIA´s New Cabin and Ground Crew Uniform (2019)

There will be an option for women to wear pants, that's out of discussion, for sure. Many of the airlines we all tend to love (i.e Emirates) are exactly the ones who do not allow female-crews to wear pants. Notice I said "we". I believe you used a wrong example because Emirates do have pa...

Re: United daily double SFO-SIN will cancel LAX-SIN

Now with SQ having announced its own 10x weekly LAX nonstop, and increase of SFO nonstop service to 10X weekly as well, I think we know why UA decided to drop LAX and double up at SFO to protect its hub. Unfortunately, I give SQ the far better chance on the routes with their product and beyond conn...

Re: United daily double SFO-SIN will cancel LAX-SIN

Smart move by United. They launched LAX-SIN in hopes it would keep AA out of the market. Now AA tipped their hands and said that they don't want to start such a route. So now UA can have a 2nd daily SFO-SIN in hopes of knocking SQ off of the route. They probably hope that SQ will just fly LAX-SIN a...
