– Saudia Arabia seems to be serious about issuing tourist visas next year

– scary engine backfire on video when this 767 tried to take off from Vancouver airport yesterday (ultimately it was aborted)
– Air France has begun cancelling the 4,000 (!) tickets booked in First Class on Tuesday
My booking made with Orbitz stills shows as perfectly valid. Let’s see what happens.
– Etihad is cutting service to Teheran and Entebbe next year
Cutting Teheran might have some political motive but it’s sad to see them leave Eastern Africa.
– Philippine Airlines is cutting their stop in Vancouver and now flies Toronto to Manila direct – it’s apparently their first Polar flight!
