Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

Personally, I would have much more interest in what board members here have to say. This is a hard one if only because my own preferences differ depending on long-haul v. short-haul and biz class v. economy class. But here goes – Short-Haul - Economy Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong Airlines, China Airlin...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

An interesting question. We are told that somewhere in the region of 14 million passengers complete the surveys. Although they have been published for 20 years, like firecat69, after around 2.5 million kms flying over the last 20 years, I have never seen a survey form, never been asked my views by a...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

The Media Conference with the Boys This is a rough summary of the long and happy media conference held with the boys from the soccer team, Coach Ek and three of the Navy SEALS. As the boys entered, they were wearing bright new Wild Boars T-shorts and there was applause. They first played around wit...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

To qualify for the "best" accolade. Skytrax takes into account almost 2 million votes and a large variety of variables covering all four classes (three for airlines without premium economy) and ground services including lounges. So the fact that SIN comes top overall does not mean that cov...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

For more than a generation, conventional wisdom has portrayed Republicans as the sole defenders of the American flag, the great stewards of patriotism, the gun-toting, tough-talking party of law and order . . . It has long been presented as fact by the traditional media, putting Democrats on the de...

Re: Elon Musk Calls Cave Rescue Diver Pedophile

Yes, but if Musk had known that before bringing the min-sub, he would have had no reason to bring it. Allegedly he was in correspondence with one of the British divers. But even that stretches belief because by that time the Brits were certainly well aware of the exceedingly narrow twists and turns...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I am guessing, but since taking charge the present Thai government has had a shortish daily programme at 6:00 pm which interrupts regular programming on many channels, including many True-Visions channels. I suspect this media conference will be shown in its place. As with other hospital updates on ...
