RE: New Star Alliance Members

Qazar, I completely disagree with your assessment of TAM's likely lean towards Star Alliance. It is a bit silly to say that TAM's strong presence at <acronym title="Paris - Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) (CDG / LFPG), France">CDG</acronym> plays no role in its ultimate selection. <acronym title="Paris -...

RE: Question For Flying Blue Gold & Platinum Members

I'm a Platinum member and my new card and tags came last week. Your elite status is usually always printed on your boarding pass which is generally sufficient for lounge access. On very rare occasions have I actually been asked for the card.

RE: New Star Alliance Members

If TAM were to join an alliance, it would make considerably more sense for them to join Skyteam than Star. They have up to three flights a day to the Skyteam hub of Paris <acronym title="Paris - Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) (CDG / LFPG), France">CDG</acronym>, and codeshare with <acronym title="Air Fr...

Getting Bumped On Iberia

As a very frequent traveler, there is nothing I hate more than airlines that just bump you off a flight or change flight times or cancel flights at a whim with no regard for the passenger. However, if the passenger decides to change his/her flight he/she is severely penalized for doing so. IBERIA ha...

Transavia France

Towards the end of last year, Air France announced the creation of an LCC to operate from Paris Orly to destinations in the Mediterranean basin. It was to be called Transavia.com and begin operations in early summer 2007. The fleet would be composed of B737-800s (presumably from the Transavia fleet)...

RE: Any US Nonstops To Islands In The EU

I once flew TAP Air Portugal in June 1982 from New York Kennedy to the island of Terceira in the Azores. It was a Boeing 707 named "Santa Maria". Recent rumours of direct charter flights during the peak summer months between the States (most likely New York) and Ibiza. But have heard that almost eve...

RE: Largest City Without An Airline Hub

Might be a bit nit-picky, but what is our definition of a hub? Air Berlin and Germanwings certainly use Berlin as a base of operations/hub (I won't bother counting Easyjet but they do have quite the operation based in Berlin too) Tuifly (ex. HLX) use Hamburg as a base/hub And, technically, the new B...
