– Business Class fares ex-Cairo are cheap but this is the first time that I see them all the way to Honolulu for ~$1,500 RT

If you are into mileage running for a Oneworld status this is as good as it gets. I haven’t been able to find the exact routing yet – here is a link to Kayak for $1,793 with a slightly different routing

– Shocking – Ex-Aeroflot manager sentenced for 8 years for embezzlement

– Turkish Airlines is in trouble and it shows – the airline has lost all its momentum and the numbers aren’t good either

Turkish Airlines reported a 2016 net loss of $77 million, reversed from a net profit of $1.7 billion for the previous year.

The Istanbul-based carrier reported a $291 million loss from main operations for the year, reversed from an $895 million profit in 2015.

Revenue for 2016 was $9.8 billion, down 6.9% from $10.5 billion in 2015.
