New Trend? or Old News? ~~Mandatory~~ self check-in

Apart from everything else we obviously have a generational issue.
The trouble is that whereas us "old duffers" do not begrudge the young turks
their preference for no "queue for me, I'll...

BCN -TLS direct flight?

Thanks for your assistance. But "bummer" all the same. They seem a logical
city pair but perhaps not in terms of business needs.

BCN -TLS direct flight?

Does anyone know if there are any non-stop direct flights between, and on
what carrier?
Not seen any with the majors (Iberia, AF or Lufthansa), but perhaps a
low-cost carrier flies Barcelona...

New Trend? or Old News? ~~Mandatory~~ self check-in

Exactly. It should be a choice. If you want to be an historic fossilized old
fogey, you should be free to be one.
And entering Alien ID numbers, dates of circumcision, hat size etc. as AF
wants to...

New Trend? or Old News? ~~Mandatory~~ self check-in

Hey, why even put seats in the f'ing plane then. It would cur the cost
considerably if they bedded us down on straw like animals.
(It's pretty close to that already to that, and pig swill would be a...

New Trend? or Old News? ~~Mandatory~~ self check-in

Fair enough.

But I flew a few months from NCL to AMS and no such thing on KLM (which even
though now ~~affiliated with~~ Air France I think of as an "old school"
airline versus AF and even BA). So...

New Trend? or Old News? ~~Mandatory~~ self check-in

Could this have happened because it was in the "wee-small pre-dawn
hours" and the counter wasn't fully staffed?


No I don't think so. The 2 check-in stations (2 lines) were manned as
normal....

New Trend? or Old News? ~~Mandatory~~ self check-in

I travel internationally (live in the US) quite often but not exactly every
week.

I saw an astonishing new trend at NCL (Newcastle UK) Air France check-in the
other morning though.

In the...

Sun Country Airlines??

I forgot to mention.

You have to remember the airport at Laughlin (located on the east bank of
the Colorado River in Bullhead City Arizona) is on Mountain time, not
Pacific. So an 8:30am car...

Sun Country Airlines??

They are OK and will get you there and back, but I seem to recall minute
leg-room.
I used to like Casino Express into Elko better but that's too far to drive
to LV (or even Reno really).

CDG Air France Tight connection, or too tight?

Post Trip Report:

In the event, outbound was OK. Although it was like absurd whacko inventor's machine to cook boiled eggs involving railroad tracks and counterweights [and involveing at least 50...

A theoretical scenario and what would happen: would appreciate feed back

I had previously asked in this forum about a very tight connection on a

IAH-CDG-NCL (Air France) flight which has a scant 1 hour connection in Paris
for the ongoing flight to Newcastle.

What would...

CDG Air France Tight connection, or too tight?

I should have said, although US Perm Resident, am UK national with UK

So maybe there's hope? Having been in the US for many years with infrequent

CDG Air France Tight connection, or too tight?

Can anyone tell me whether this connection (apparently a published one) is feasible? How far between CDG 2E and 2F. Sounds close, but that usually means it's about 5 miles apart by bus and tram and...
