– Scoot is coming to Berlin (from Singapore) in 2018 – a great win after the airport lost lost of flights with the Air Berlin insolvency
– Iberia still has the 25% award sale running – from the East Coast to Europe this can be a good deal (and reasonable fuel surcharges)
– El Al is adding San Francisco to the list of destinations with their new 787 – redemptions are expensive though using their own program
– this Ryanair passenger simply opened up the emergency exit while the plane was taxiing and tried to made a run for it
I waited a full one hour yesterday waiting at Oakland airport after a 12 hour LEVEL flight and I was considering the same 🙂
