• Whire I wish you well, in my opinion SA are far worse than OW. Super Elite with Air Canada seemed to earn me a stale bun every now and again and a person to call when they stuffed up AGAIN,

  • I just dont get the "shock/horror: no wifi".  On airlines that do have it, it's never really amounted to much, and its not like there's not an excellent entertainment system on QF long distance flights. While I have not done Rom-Per, I have flown QF Syd-YVR in same metal and found it excelle...

  • Wile no guarantee of good or ill, I'd suggest that every US airline would prove private ownership is no panacea. I wish ITA all the best regardless of ownership structure.

    I have rented through Enterprise and had the toll plus fee charged. Last time I got a weekend pass. Yet to see if it works...

  • I do wish they'd been around a few years ago. Living in Calgary (for my sins) westjet PE yyc to hnl then pe to Australia would have been faster and more cost efficient than via dfw or lax....
