You would never, for love nor money, get me on this airline.

It never ceases to amaze me what people will do to save a few coins on air travel.

Not this little black duck.

I have an airline I wont fly on either.

I met a guy & his wife at White Beer'd a few weeks ago.

It was about 11:30pm, he was very drunk and flying to Samui at 8:30 am the following morning.

Crazy.

Two people in the cockpit? These days they are talking about zero people in the cockpit. About as dumb as driverless cars.
