Is $50/hour a fair price to pay for upgrading to a business class seat? American Airlines suggested that price to me last week, and after a long couple days of work north of Los Angeles I took the offer. With a transcon flight home ahead, I figured the extra space and comfort would be worthwhile. It was a pleasant and comfortable trip, though the A321T fleet is starting to show its age.
Yes, Breeze Airways flies under the low cost carrier concept. But executives hope the airline will be seen more as a “Nice Low Cost Carrier, a niche of its own where we really focus on treating guests the right way.” Here’s how that’s playing out, nine months into the airline’s operations.
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.
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.
Join me on board Gogo’s Jimmy Ray, a 737-500 used for testing the company’s latest and greatest in-flight internet service.
