Re: No more ANR-FRA ???

Yes, they have been operating the route, but stopped it some time ago. I think it was because of the competition of the trains. Hmm, that makes me wonder why it took them so long to recognize "surface competition" since high speed trains have not just arrived last week between Frankfurt/Cologne and...

Since you are from Hasselt i suggest you may consider flying ex Germany. There´s a specialist travel agency in Köln (Keulen/Cologne) for travel to the Philippines. It´s almost an institution in the german Phil. community... They also have a website: www.kirschner.de If one of your parents is Filipin...

I just wonder which destinations they´re gonna choose... But since TV has disappeared there´s clearly a gap left for a new entrant! The "new" Brussels Airlines won´t be able to offer the same amount of LCC-seats after the merger of both ops. But i don´t see them flying out of ANR because they won´t ...

Well, in most european countries that car is sold under the "OPEL" brand (german name) but solely in the U.K it is sold under the "VAUXHALL" brand. The only difference being different frontgrill and labels. Nothing else! All these names are owned by General Motors which just make people "feel" their...

Well, there is no such thing as a separate domestic airport in Manila. It is the same airport for domestic and international flights. The difference is that domestic terminal and international terminal(s) are separate. It will take about 10-15 mins to get there. The Filipinos call the domestic and i...
