I fly BA that departs about 45 mins after EK at SEATAC so I get to see EK passengers boarding . 90% of the EK passenger list are Indian Microsofties or Amazonians, or their visiting parents. EK have ridiculous deals to India, like $900 RT, companion flies free. They probably kept riding on this demographic and now have to face the harsh reality.in reply to: More US capacity and frequency cuts for EK I see!8 Apr 2018
Not surprising. And, I always thought their second European destination will be Frankfort21 Mar 2018
Thank you all for your responses. I had another issue to deal with. As I was on 2 separate bookings, the Delta agents at SEATAC couldn’t issue my Air Serbia (KLM codeshare) ticket. So essentially, I didn’t have any onward boarding card so I just cleared immigration and headed to the city centre.
On a separate topic – wow – that KLM dreamliner is amazing. I’ll be posting a separate review!in reply to: KLM "Arrivals" Lounge in AMS?18 Mar 2018
I order Asian vegetarian meals on BA which, are quite good but they come with a rather bland/vegan dessert or fresh fruit choice. I instead ask them to serve me the regular dessert options and I am told that “we ran out”12 Mar 2018
thanks! I usually avoid wifi/work on flights, good IFE and food options (particularly snacks, etc. between meals) is all I care for! 🙂 I just booked for Hindu vegetarian meals for the flights. Good part – I get to sample both A350 and 77W. Bad news, there’s very short transit time (about 1.5 hours both ways) so I doubt I’ll get to enjoy the lounge (unless the incoming flight lands early and I dash out the door the minute it opens, lol)27 Feb 2018
Also, with regards to my question on CX A350 vs 77W, I found this link on flyertalk. Overall summary – newer cabins and all, but overall marginal difference.26 Feb 2018
Thanks Flightlevel! Yes, there maybe a 2nd trip to India in June and I may consider SQ for that.
Every year, I first aim for oneworld Sapphire (American Airlines “Platinum”) followed by Delta (skyteam) Silver. After the India trip, I’ll only about 2K miles short of Sapphire which I can make up during the rest of the year. My only regret is that I didn’t fly QR when one could still accrue AA miles. Now, it’s a moot point.26 Feb 2018
