I am a Canadian. Lived most of my life in Calgary. Although been here over 13 years now, but we never had any heated sprayers then. Just your run of the mill cold weather washer liquid. Never had the sprayer not work even in the cold near night I remember… -50C. Heater couldn’t keep the car warm so frosted breath was a problem for seeing but window washer worked fine!in reply to: Driving in the snow (to meetings of course)…8 Mar 2018
That is standard industry practice, the only exception to this is the low cost carriers. The scheduled airlines do not allow name changes more than 3 characters. It is cancel and rebook at prevailing rate16 Feb 2018
I would be thanking Norwegian. If she had booked on almost any other airline in the world she would have had to book a whole new ticket and lose the original.15 Feb 2018
The best way to make legacy carriers profitable would be to get rid of the short haul routes and outsource to the LoCo’s. Most short haul routes are unprofitable or have negligtable profits, but they are used to feed traffic to the profitable long haul routes. So I can see the legacies moving to outsourcing, and it’s a smart move.in reply to: Air France industrial action in October?3 Oct 2015
Quick question, just booked a car through Avis on the executive club website and it says you get an extra driver free of charge for exec club members and to ensure you add your exec club number to the booking. Problem being there is no field to enter the membership number. Is this just automatically added behind the scenes as it was booked from within my exec club account?
Anyone done this before and were there any problems with Avis when picking up the car?in reply to: Car hire company shenanigans… Avis8 Aug 2015
As he is taking the first few minutes after take off you are in the initial stages of the SID, a route that is planned and often mandated by the regulators to cover noise abatement. You also will not get clear air turbulence in this phase of flight (CAT is most often associated with entering or exiting the jet stream). What was felt was most likely wake turbulence from a preceding aircraft.7 Aug 2015
Your comment ( re. 21-22 ys old) made me remember something. During my initial flight training I was made aware of a EasyJet flight that had a 22 year old Captain and a 21 year FO, with less than 3000 hours total time between them!! Scared the bejesus out of me that did.
Back on topic, does anyone really think that anything is done with compliments sent in? Honest question, as i’m not 100% sure anything is done with complaints most of the time, so would they bother with compliments?in reply to: Do you ever write to compliment crew?30 Nov 2013
it is only a 4 hour flight, shorter than London to Cairo, and about the same as London to Moscow22 Nov 2013
Seriously though who would book a ticket 2.5 hrs before departure from the internet? Just chuck up at the airport and buy the ticket from the ticket counter there, on the day of travel prices will be the same no matter where you get the ticket from?
As an aside, quite cheeky to keep the card fee!in reply to: Last minute.com “Scam”22 Nov 2013
Im sorry but what did they “market” that they did not deliver? You paid for an extra legroom seat and got that….
They don’t market blanket and pillows ( which no airline carries enough for every passenger ).
He flies Thomas Cook and then complains that it compares to Easy Jet?.. well they are both low cost airlines so of course they would be similar.
The charter airlines are just the long haul equivalents of the short haul LCC’s like RyanAir and Easy…in reply to: Thomas Cook Airlines A330-200 (Long-haul) Long haul21 Nov 2013
You have to remember the UK is quite small. There is no way it is big enough for 2 international hubs for a single airline, so of course it is going to be London focused, thats where 90% of its customer base ( not including those that are just transiting LHR, and they couldnt care where they change planes) is located.
People from areas other than London might not like it, but the face of the UK to the international market IS London.in reply to: BA Launches #lookup “Magical” Ads21 Nov 2013
I couldnt see it happening. For one thing whats in it for QR? what does BA bring to the table other than stripping QR of UK-DOH traffic?
BA already has pretty much everywhere in Asia and Aus covered in one stop from the UK with their codeshares with CX.in reply to: BA-QR joint venture?21 Nov 2013
