Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

I forgot to mention as a departure point heading to Asia from the USA, I just love Seattle. Not too large and good transportation system, short walks to gates. Short flying time to first destination on way to BKK. Great circle route. Like Dublin because US customs is there and thus out the door when...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

I have not recently been in Nagoya, Zurich or Frankfurt. As for the others, I'd agree with their positions - with the exception of Heathrow. Having been through Terminal 4 and then later Terminal 5 so many times, I cannot see how that airport can possibly qualify. I agree Heathrow is a disaster. Be...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

My biggest question I guess, is that flying millions of miles on many different airlines in all classes over a 50 year period, I have never been asked to fill out that poll. Food for thought!

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

Once again I have to say I consider this poll useless. First of all rating for Economy is beyond a joke. Seats and food sucks on all of them . Although I have had no personal experience the last 10 years in Economy on International flights since all of my travel has been in Business. I have numerous...

Re: Democracy will Prevail

Try reading the article more carefully. Rose Colored glasses he certainly does not have. He starts off with statistics that less then 1/2 the world's population live in Democracies. But of course the following is what made you dislike the article because he says clearly what China is and how they ha...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

Churchill, FDR, Mandela , Obama , Eisenhower etc etc etc . Were these, and many others, crooks? I think not! Eisenhower, Churchill, FDR are all before I was born. Amazing someone needs to go back that far to think of some who MAY have been decent. I couldn't say. Mandela wasn't really a politician....
