You don't mean you prefer SK or even think they are comparable, right? :eek:

Even if it were in J, I don’t think one could compare the SK experience to the TG one ;)

Is this something new? I fly them quite regularly, and the only such service I 've seen is a decent but rather uninteresting Wi-Fi based IFE system that pax can access through the Aegean app on their...

In addition to what lhrpete and UKtravelbear wrote, the hard product shouldn't be very different. Aegean operate a previous generation (ceo) A320-family birds, while Norwegian operate B738s. A3 is...

No. One additional free bag for *S is not an alliance-wide benefit.

It's true that after the introduction of business class seat auctioning op-ups have almost completely stopped for me, and it has become considerably harder to redeem my vouchers. Yet they still work....

No doubt that last-minute prices to the Greek isles during summer are ridiculously high. Airlines are profit-maximizing entities, not charities, and quite unexpectedly they are trying to milk the...

This may have to do with your trip being booked through another airline. I have an upcoming multi-city booked through LH, and I am unable to select a seat on the A3-operated leg of the trip. There is...

Yes, it could very well have been so, but I don't think I ever wondered about this. Back then at least one free bag would be included even in the cheapest fares, and I seldom fly with a second...

Hasn't it always (at least as far as I can remember...) been that EBS get +1 bag and EBG/EBD get +2 bags on SK/WF flights? Non-EB *S gets nada, that's why your companion gets 2 bags in total.

The four segments must be on A3 or OA metal, and on revenue fares. As a rule of thumb, if a segment earns even a single mile on M&B, it counts as one of the four, whether GoLight, Flex, or Biz.

Fellow FTers please correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't EU261 kick in here? This is an involuntary class downgrade, not caused by factors beyond the airline's control. Meaning that you are entitled...

Pray not. Given how SAS tries to “fix” issues their response to your feedback will most likely be to raise the bar for EBD, further undercut earnings, or “enhance” EB in some way similar to what they...

I suppose that this is booked directly through SAS, and not through some OTA, right?
