EL AL
by: Alec Goldwyn

Having never flown El Al or any other airline as serious about security as it claims to be, I was slightly intimidated by what awaited me.

PR A340 & more
by: Joe Wolf

I’ve always wanted to fly on an Airbus A340, but have never had the chance. This year, I realized that time is passing by quickly. As airlines take delivery of Boeing 747-8s, 777s, and 787s the less-economical four-engine A340 will be phased out. Unfortunately, my workload made a trip outside North America impractical. However, the article about Philippine Airlines in the April 2012 issue of Airways mentioned that PR flies A340s between Las Vegas and Manila via Vancouver, British Columbia, with local traffic rights on the LAS-YVR leg. I realized that I could log an A340 without going overseas.

Ethiopian Airlines (inter-Europe)
by: Luigi Vallero

Flying between the capitals of Sweden and Italy is not as easy and convenient as you might imagine. Alitalia, KLM, Lufthansa, and Swiss all provide scheduled one-stop service, but not on a daily basis, and at relatively inconvenient times. Another—perhaps surprising—option is to fly nonstop with Ethiopian Airlines.

MALÉV Hungarian Airlines
by: Luigi Vallero

MALÉV Hungarian Airlines, profiting from its status as a 'Balkan countries expert', is among the few European legacy carriers providing a reliable service enabling connections across Europe via its efficient Budapest hub.

Qatar Airways
by: Christopher J Varady

At Qatar Airways’s desk at Beirut’s Rafic Hariri International Airport there were only about five passengers waiting for check-in.

Air Malta
by: Luigi Vallero

I had booked this trip through the airmalta.com website two weeks before departure, at the reasonable rate of €107 ($140) including all taxes.

SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) Economy Extra
by: Anne Spiselman

The very early bird doesn’t always get the worm. When I arrived at the SAS counter in O’Hare’s Terminal 5 at 1255, a long line of passengers was waiting to check-in.

American Airlines (International)
by: Sebastian Toovey

This was the first time that I had been through AA’s new and beautiful Terminal 8 at JFK since its completion in September of this year.

American Airlines
by: Anne Spiselman

Travellers who need a little extra care and attention, such as those requiring wheelchair assistance, often seem to be forgotten, as occurred on these two US domestic American Airlines flights.

Hawaiian Airlines (South Pacific)
by: Andreas Rohde

Hawaiian Airlines offers inter-island services, as well as domestic flights to the Mainland USA and long-range trips across the Equator to Tahiti and American Samoa.

Air Seychelles
by: Andreas Rohde

Air Seychelles is one of the smallest independent international air carriers, yet one with a distinctive local touch.

Gulf Air
by: Andreas Rohde

With the boom in the Chinese and Hong Kong economies, flights from the former British Crown Colony to Europe are notoriously oversold.

Hawaiian Airlines
by: Ivan K Nishimura

The counter staff at HNL, and flight and cabin crews of HA026, were all outstanding, exemplifying Hawai‘i’s ‘Aloha Spirit’.

Star Alliance: TAP Portugal & United Airlines
by: Joe Wolf

In October 2006, I flew the Star Alliance from Lisbon to Minneapolis. I flew on TAP Portugal from Lisbon to London Heathrow, and United Airlines from Heathrow to Chicago O’Hare then on to Minneapolis. While I found the in-flight service on both airlines reasonably good, I was exasperated by every airport I passed through except MSP.

Flybe
by: Haas Mroue

Far superior than both Easyjet and Ryanair, Flybe’s smaller size means that you can still expect some graciousness from the flight attendants.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
by: Luigi Vallero

KLM still delivers reliable, dependable, warm and attentive service—even in this cost-conscious world.
:: Read More ::

Avianca
by: Ernest White II

Compared with many Latin American airlines, Avianca rates good marks for solid, professional service; agreeable, bilingual cabin crews; and convenient connections through its Bogotá hub for domestic and other international destinations.

Lufthansa (North Atlantic)
by: Haas Mroue

Lufthansa receives very high marks for excellent service that is still superior to most other western airlines; catering out of LAX leaves a lot to be desired, however.

Royal Jordanian (RJA)
by: Sana Chebaro

With talk of joining the Oneworld alliance and a fleet upgrade (the ex-Air France and Sabena A340s are a dozen years old), Royal Jordanian has the potential to become a decent airline.

Iberia
by: Luigi Vallero

The departure gate at Rome FCO for my Iberia flight to Madrid was B7, in the Schengen area, a short walk from the main domestic terminal. I arrived at the gate to find the Boeing 757-200 already being serviced.

Spanair
by: Luigi Vallero

To catch Spanair’s flight from Madrid-Barajas to the island of Tenerife, I had to walk for about five minutes after arriving from Rome with Alitalia.

Finnair
by: Luigi Vallero

I through-checked for my whole journey from Italy to Japan, then proceeded to FCO’s Gate B8 where passengers gradually gathered for Finnair’s daily nonstop service to Helsinki.

Edelweiss Air
by: Luigi Vallero

The airport of Olbia, Sardinia, is traditionally a sleepy haven during the winter months, but returns to a hectic level of movements with the arrival of the summer season. Charters and scheduled flights from most Italian cities and many European airports bring sunseekers to the beaches of the Costa Smeralda. Among the airlines that traditionally serve the airport, Edelweiss Air links Olbia with Zürich with ‘scheduled charter’ service.

Air France by Régional
by: Luigi Vallero

Leaving Nice by air on a clear day is the best way to enjoy the beautiful views which can be afforded from its airport (Airways, January 2003). In particular, domestic flights leave from Terminal 2, located to the west of Terminal 1, overlooking the azure Mediterranean waters as well as the city and its surrounding hills.

Air Dolomiti (Lufthansa Regional)
by: Luigi Vallero

One of the seasonal links from Olbia, Sardinia, to Genoa [Genova] was an opportunity to sample the Italian accent of Lufthansa Regional.

Ryanair
by: Seija A Wegg

The ‘Low Fares Airline’ (by its own admission) reviewed here is Ryanair that, in November 2003, flew some two million passengers in the UK and around Europe, or 240,000 more than British Airways. I was one of them (along with this magazine’s editor in chief). We were also first-time travellers on ‘Britain’s favourite airline’ (another Ryanair claim) because—you guessed—we wished to spend as little as possible (and I pay the bills for our company).

Air New Zealand
by: Roger Thiedeman

The cheerful check-in agent informed us that the incoming flight from New Zealand would be arriving—and departing Melbourne—approximately 25 minutes late because of westerly headwinds across the Tasman Sea; but she also assured us that the delay would be made up when the headwinds became tailwinds for our eastbound flight.

Silk Air
by: Roger Thiedeman

Reservations were made online, and paid for, two months before travel. But the attractive roundtrip fare of SGD110 ($64) was soured somewhat by taxes amounting to an additional SGD78 ($45).

Etihad Airways
by: Haas Mroue

The first thing that strikes you when you find the Etihad Airways check-in counters at LGW’s North Terminal is that all the staff members are immaculately dressed in Etihad uniforms, which are quite striking with silk scarves and hats for the females and tie-free suits for the males.
