– Skyteam has put flights to the US on sale from Vienna this time starting at $1,431 for the Round Trip (West Coast is a bit more)

– one more benefit of being a state owned airline? You can throw in a visa deal for a country as Emirates is now doing for departure from Accra, Ghana starting at $599 Round Trip in Economy

– Virgin Atlantic is offering a status match for BA elite status holders, worth a look if you have status since Delta offers reciprocal benefits to Virgin Atlantic elite status holders as well

– the Gulf Airlines CEO has finally resigned

Al Musallam told the English-language Bahraini newspaper, the Gulf Daily News that there was no particular reason for his decision: “I would like to retire as I have been with Gulf Air for seven plus years.”

Al Musallam was previously deputy CEO at Gulf Air, then had an extended period as acting CEO following the 2012 departure of his predecessor, Samer Majali.

Gulf Airlines runs a tight ship BUT has been left in the desert dust but the Gulf neighbors (since they can outspend everyone). But now that Qatar Airways is hindered by the diplomatic rift it is time to grab some opportunities in teh Middle East for Gulf Airlines.
