Will you say this each time you post on this thread ? :roll:


About the paint, would anyone guess where the job will be done ?

Re: Where will you fly in 2018 ?

A daytrip is always worth it IMHO, as André said there are always activities to find, be it just for a coffee or a spotting session at the airport... When you take for example the FR morning flight CRL-BGY, lot of people fly back in the same evening after enjoying some time in Bergamo, so it's not o...

Most of the time when I type my first name "Jean-François" I receive an error message as - and ç are not recognized by the systems. Guess I'm going to have some hard times if they want it to be accurate :D

Re: Ryanair in 2017

I'm flying Ryanair next week and I also checked the baggage policy. It seems the "one bag"-policy will only be effective from 15th of January: https://www.ryanair.com/ie/en/useful-info/help-centre/faq-overview/Baggage/What-cabin-baggage-can-I-carry/ Thanks. Flew today with a suitcase and hand bag a...

Re: Ryanair in 2017

Has anyone flown with them recently ? If so, do they strictly enforce their new "one bag" policy ?
Thanks.

Even better ! I wish I could say this for my flight, as when the A319 arrived the gate agent announced that it would be free seating due to the aircraft change. Boarding was made Ryanair-style :roll:

Nice. Booked that same flight in september but F-HRBA never took off from CDG. They eventually sent an A319 some 3 hours later... Btw when checking online the day before, seats upgrades were available for 9€, including J seats. Selected 2A...later confirmed to 9A in Y+...

Re: Where will you fly in 2018 ?

Wow ! RTW from CRL !!! :twisted: That would be a first ? Call the news :lol: Almost an entire LCC routing indeed, my goal was to make it as cheap as possible and I couldn't find interesting Asia-America flights this time so I used an award flight. Total paid for this trip is less than 500€ 8-)

Indeed I know a certain Marc who flies BRU AMS via LIS because he's avgeek and it is CHEAPER to fly ! Lol

Guilty !
I once booked FLL-CLT-MIA-SJU as a single ticket (and actually cheaper than the same MIA-SJU flight). The look of the check-in agent at FLL was priceless :lol:

Re: The World's Oddest Air Routes

VIE-BTS, sadly no longer available.

Also the kind of routings we avgeeks can create to get from A to B will certainly look odd to a vast majority :mrgreen:
