Years ago the same scenario happened to LY a few years ago. They incorrectly publicized JFK TLV R/T at a minimal fraction of the then-cheapest fare and during the 24-hour "error" period the news quickly spread across the NY/NJ Jewish community, leading to hundreds of bookings. LY had to ho...Jump to post
(CO was first.) I thought PAN AM was the first carrier to offer helicopter transfers? Back in the day, you could buy your ticket at the PAN AM ticket office in the lobby of the PAN AM Building on Park Avenue, then take an elevator to the rooftop, board the helicopter for JFK. And TWA later offered ...Jump to post
Luxembourg is a beautiful country, but it’s very small, and with CDG and BRU about 3 hours away by train, and AMS/FRA each less than 5 hours...yes, why? At least it’s got a central location to a lot of places? Maybe they have an agreement with a tour operator in Luxembourg for Chinese tourists? If ...Jump to post
Good, they should take the opportunity to end MSP-HND at the same time. They only average low 70% LF for 2017. Uh? I just flew that route in May round trip and there was not a single open seat... Uh? and your single anecdotal experience trumps actual data? Sorry, but no. Although of note is that T1...Jump to post
Just remember that being too strict towards one side on the other led Kuwait Airways to drop the lucrative JFK LHR segment after it refused to transport an Israeli passenger.
Airlines, like any other transport mean, should me "neutral" and should equally cater everybody.
Not sure whether IAD in April 1980 had jetways, however I remember flying FCO CDG IAD and back on a TWA 707 and both ways we were shuttled from the terminal to the aircraft with a hydraulic bus, which collected passengers at the gate, then it lowered to the ground, reached the aircraft, and lifted u...Jump to post

I truly understand everyone’ s opinions about AZ, however, let me explain this rather that with a practical capitalist mentality, with an Italian mentality. AZ has been considered, for years, like a governmental department, where favors, nepotism, and personal interests have dominated the company. B...Jump to post
How about DTW NRT/HND?
I know that for OneWorld carriers DTW means nothing, however, throughout the years DL did pretty good not only in connecting flight but also in O/D.
I just love the pompousness of the Russian aviation industry. First Transaero with its "Imperial Class", now "Royal Flight".
Did not they have a revolution in 1917 to abolish monarchy???
It could be for two reasons: 1. The lessor company (a third party) is headquartered in the U.S. or any of its territories and, by leasing contract, might require aircrafts to be registered with a specific country (example: almost all Alitalia' s aircrafts have an Irish "EI" registration) i...Jump to post

Back in the 80s, during the brief period of time I worked at CP Air, I remember the airline had lots of traffic in the Europe / South America and vv. routes. Passenger left on day 1 from SCL/EZE/GRU/GIG/LIM to arrive in YYZ on the morning of day 2, staying for 12 hours or so at the airport to leave ...Jump to post
YQG is also a much easier airport to navigate than DTW, because you can get from your gate to your car in just 3 or 4 minutes. YQG markets itself as "Your Quick Getaway" (clever slogan based on their airport code!) for this reason. The border crossing by car and the connection at YYZ kill...Jump to post
Windsor' s best kept secret is that it is an extremely-valid alternative to DTW for flights to Europe. It is not unusual to find a DTW FCO fare at USD 1,400.00 and higher and a YQG FCO fare for the same dates at USD 850.00. Still, people n Michigan are not aware of this and keep paying higher fares...Jump to post
I could be tempted to book WOW Air for a DTW-Europe trip because of its low basic fares, trip but I have some serious doubts: 1. Reliability of the airline. It is today's news that their website has been "down" for at least 24 hours (at least according to one other Airliners.net post). Fur...Jump to post

Hi ryanrap, I will fly to Tokyo for the very first time in about a month. The first BIG suggestion I give you is to make sure to have all of your accommodation reservations ready at least two or three months before your trip. I did extensive research on Tripadvisor, YouTube, and other forums and I h...Jump to post
Uh! Flying DTW MSP HND and back next month. Not as much as your 15+ hours but it will be 12:20 on the MSP HND DL 777.

You might want to think of a good excuse for European immigration officers. Controls are tight and (to their eyes) it may not make sense to see a passenger arriving from and going to on the same day! Just remember that in Europe security is VERY tight. To me it makes VERY sense to fly on specific pl...Jump to post
NW 68Y 15NOV2006 DTWAMS A330 A couple of hours after we left from DTW and as we were into the beginning of the "big arch" over the Atlantic, a diabetic passenger realized he left home without insulin.

Under a cost-benefit prospective, would not it make financial sense only to stick to a single family of products? I do understand a fleet splitting between short- / medium-range and long-range but I think that equally purchasing A350s and 787s (which I would speculate would be used for long-range) w...Jump to post
As most everyone knows, the major issue is with the runways in that there are cemeteries on both sides of the longer (but way too short) N-S runway which prevents expansion, and the E-W runway is even shorter yet. Even if the airport was destined just for corporate/general aviation (which I would a...Jump to post
I don't think TW ever flew IAD-LHR. They "may have" in the 60's/70's but if they did it was given up during the TW/PA Euro-route swaps in the 70's TW actually did fly IAD LHR. It was to couple the successful IAD CDG (with change of equipment to fly to TLV, FCO, or CAI). It happened toward...Jump to post
The TWA routes that Carl Icahn sold in an effort to chop-off the airline were::
LHR JFK (TW701 / TW703 / TW705)
LHR BOS (TW751)
LHR ORD (TW771)
LHR PHL (TW???)
LHR IAD (TW???)
LHR LAX (TW761)
At that time, TWA did not serve good markets, such as LHR MIA and LHR SFO.
It kept a timid LGW STL
I wish DTW would get an independent carrier. Skyteam (DL/AF) has the oligopoly of the DTW-Europe flights, while Star Alliance (LH) is solidly entrenched in the DTW FRA market. The only independent carrier is ULCC WOW Air, which is timidly approaching DTW with a 4X/weekly departure at 12:50 AM. The E...Jump to post
