Indeed. Comparing time spent waiting in a pre-boarding queue and time spent at disembarkation is comparing apples and oranges. If you spend half an hour in a pre-boarding queue, it does not mean that...

Credit from partners, especially non-flying partners, can take time before being credited. I would not expect a credit from Accor to make its way quasi-instantly onto my FB account. Give it a few...

Sure. Etihad first class apartment is public transport and so is a bajaj between Addis Abeba Bole Airport and Mesquel Square. The fact that we are talking public transport in both cases does not mean...

It also just reflects the very different kind of airlines that BA and KL are. Given the small size of the Netherlands, KL is crucially dependent on transfer traffic, so they have no choice than to go...

Indeed but what makes this possible is the integration of the TGV station to the airport at CDG, which is something that has been ruled out in the case of HS2, since you will have to get off the...

Same airports but not necessarily the same terminals and facilities. To take the example of France, they are OK at CDG or NCE but at MRS, they operate, like other LCCs and unlike legacy carriers,...

Yes, and there is a big difference between BA and LH: BA LH is in Germany, which has a much more decentralised economy than the UK, where two hubs may make sense. It does not follow that this model...

I think that there is a bit of both. Note that KL operates these routes with EMB175, an aircraft designed for thinner routes. BA does not have that kind of aircraft in its fleet as it is not suited...

Unless, I am mistaken,it is a little more than one a day (10/week), But, in any event, this might have something to do with the fact that there are trains between Leeds and London every half hour...

BA is using the very same model that all legacy carriers in Europe have moved to, namely the Hub-and-spoke model. LCC competition has made the economics of point--to-point services largely non-viable...

IME, notwithstanding the moans on US airline fora, it still seems to me that the boarding process works somewhat better in US airports than European ones. Two things, it seems to me, make it...
