India’s version of a go-around ‘Jet Airways Flight Spins 360 Degrees, Skids off Goa Airport Runway’

Fifteen people have been hurt after a plane veered off a runway in Goa and spun 360 degrees during take-off. The Captain took the decision to switch off the engine and reported the incident to ATC. In the process, 20 of them sustained injuries. Immediately after the incident Navy responded within 15-20 minutes and all the passengers were evacuated safely out of the aircraft.

– Korean Air Skypass has introduced the ability to book awards online

The tool looks nice and finds routes well for most Skyteam partners. It’s similar to the pretty good engine but lacks the 30 day overview (only foxed dates). However it find much more creative routings combining several Skyteam partners. It’s a great way to search the many Skyteam partners flying over the Pacific. Hawaii is part of the US making Miami – Honolulu a domestic award for 25,000 miles (if available on Delta).

Too bad only Round Trips are allowed on Skyteam partners (one Ways are allowed on Korean Air only redemptions).
