With half of the aircraft space devoted to the Mint business class cabin it is clear that JetBlue wants to win over the premium travel market to London. And while loads are light as service ramps up (and COVID continues to impact international travel rules), the on-board offering represents well versus the competition.
From the moment the company announced its plans, there was little doubt that JetBlue would bring a different take to the transatlantic market. The real question was what the execution would look like. Now that the A321LRs are flying the answer is clear: It is phenomenal.
What’s the experience like on Flair’s new 737 MAX? Just fine, once you get to that point, though also a bit less than expected.
This is certainly not how Vistara expected its 787s to be flying as it launched the new fleet and expanded its global footprint. Still, the on-board experience offers several bright spots as the company adapts to the COVID-19 era of service.
Bamboo Airways (mostly) operates a fleet of single-aisle Airbus A320 family planes. It is a mishmash of configurations and arrangements. Still, it is a mostly positive experience on board, one that makes flying with Bamboo pleasurable.
Deploy quickly and work out the bugs along the way. That’s not a typical approach to anything in the aviation world, and for good reason. But for AirAsia’s GX Aviation WiFi deployment that’s the plan, even if it means some hiccups along the way, as were experienced during a recent demonstration flight.
Removing nearly 30% of the seats from an aircraft is guaranteed to make the remaining product a more comfortable experience. Still, until United Airlines opened up its new CRJ550 to passengers over the weekend it was not clear just how much better the on board passenger experience would be. This plane is a big win, and not just for first class passengers.
What’s it like to fly on JetBlue’s newest A321neo? Come along on board as I put it through the paces.
Is it possible that the best place to relax before a flight is the convenience store tucked away behind the food court? At Incheon’s T2 the 7-11 offers a compelling set of services that might make you rethink the idea of a lounge visit.
It is one of the most rare commercial aircraft types flying today, an the future looks shaky at best. Welcome on board the COMAC ARJ21-700, a marvel of engineering, though not necessarily for the right reasons.
