also had a very rare Kalitta Air mug, but I broke it.
This thread made me think of something: Is there an animal insurance? In the unfortunate event of an accident are those horses insured? Is it common to insure animals? yes it is common. it is also mandatory in some countries for some dog's breeds, and if not mandatory, highly recommended. by the wa...Jump to post

Amsterdam is nice, but there are smaller towns that are nicer.

Sure it is the last good generation.
And 1983 is the last good year.

this is just a marketing move. we - some more, some less - aviation experts know that those seats have a huge safety issue. pregnant women cannot be seated on those. also infants cannot be carried on parents' laps in case of an evacuation, the wounded / dead uncouncious person on seat C / D will blo...Jump to post

I haven't read any of the Dune books but I did go see the movie with someone who is a huge fan of them and he thought that for what the film did cover, it did a very good job, just that it didn't cover anywhere near enough.

Agree on The Andromeda Strain . I re-readed the book on my recent business trip. By the time I boarded the plane in FLR, during the flight tu MUC and then from MUC to DUS I readed about 75%. I've readed the remaining 25% while waiting in DUS... Movie was also well made. Have it in the DVD player rig...Jump to post

I think it is a consequence of the merge between Alitalia and Air One some years ago. Air One established an Irish Leasing Company, AP Fleets, taking advantage of the convenient Irish tax environment. After the merge, Alitalia sold all or most of its planes to AP Fleets and leased them back. It´s a...Jump to post
So I returned from my weekly business trip. Both on LH2014 and LH77 there was no business class middle seat occupied.
