In mid-2016 I first wrote about how Air France was finally planning on introducing inflight wifi, which is an exciting development. Within the past week the airline has shared some further information about their inflight wifi, and it’s great news. The first planes with wifi are now flying, and we now have a sense of the timeline with...

It seems like every week I’m writing about how another major airline has revealed a new staff uniform. In 2016, American launched new uniforms for their 70,000+ staff to huge fanfare. While the design was smart and professional, the comfort and practicality of the uniforms was a disaster. In late 2016, employees reported that the new uniforms were...
Well that didn’t last long! Just five months ago, on May 2, 2018, Cathay Pacific commenced non stop services from Hong Kong to Copenhagen, as part of a major European expansion which also included new services to Dublin and Brussels. The flight operated seasonally (over the northern summer), three times per week with the following schedule: CX227...
This is just an update to a previous post (the original post is below). It looks like Virgin Atlantic Flying Club has undone this change, and they’re no longer imposing surcharges on Delta award tickets, with the exception of awards originating in Europe, as well as any awards from the US to the UK (but not to the...
Here’s an interesting update from Austrian. Austrian Airlines adding flights to Montreal Austrian Airlines will be launching flights between Vienna and Montreal as of April 29, 2019. The airline will operate this flight daily throughout the summer schedule, and 5x weekly in winter. The flight will be operated by a Boeing 767-300, with the following schedule: OS73 Vienna...
Delta is the first US airline to take delivery of the Airbus A220 (formerly known as the Bombardier CSeries). This is a fabulous plane from a passenger experience standpoint, and the airline has 75 of these planes on order. In terms of size, the A220 is between your average regional jet and average mainline narrowbody jet, so it...
There’s no denying that over time the role of flight attendants has changed around the world. Going back a few decades, even US airlines only hired young, attractive, and typically female flight attendants. Over time that has changed, and most definitely in the US being a flight attendant can now be a life-long career, with no US airline...
Earlier this week, Ben wrote about his recent experiences flying Delta, and the marked difference in quality of service when compared with American Airlines. As expected, the post brought out a flurry of comments, not only because the question of better is always subjective, but because the topic of Delta always seems to bring up a natural conundrum that...
There’s a story that has gone viral regarding United’s October 2 flight from Los Angeles to Sydney, UA839, which landed early this morning (October 4). The pilot declared a “mayday,” which is a distress signal generally used for life-threatening emergencies (less urgent situations will receive a “pan” call). I’ve seen a lot about this in US media, but...
