Let's see how the trafic figures were this weekend when the Geneva Motor Show is in process. I bet that the 25-26 February weekend traffic will be overfulfilled.

I can't say that I'm in love for the new "Southwes Airlines style". I think that the old(curent) one is more beautiful. But maybe I'm too used to it.

So there is competiton on this route.

True but LH's flight times are perfectly timed. Also that cheaper KL fare is restricted to the KL flight that arrives into IST at 23:30 and depart 05:40 in the morning which effectively means 'loosing' 2 days. Even though I'm going for work purposes, the extra time could come in very handy to see t...

Maybe their service in Poland is worse. In Hungary(BUD) everithing it's OK. And I must say that their service is improving each day. 1 year ago for example there were frequent 20-30 minutes delays(I was lucky and didn't catch many of those) but now almost all flights are on time.

TAROM - emergency landing at BRU

I saw yesterday on TV that the OTP-LHR Tarom flight had an emergency landing at BRU due to a pilots cabin cracked window. The Oxygen Masks were used by the passengers.
The passengers continued their way to LHR with other airlines flights.

Because BEG - BUD road distance is only ~350 km from witch ~170 on motorway(5 hours drive) and there is already a very developed minibus transfer for low cost flights. Each ti...
