    It had to happen: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...d=pm_world_pop
    It has become a sport to stand in the blast zone apparently.
    Is this the first fatality??

      Not sure you all agree with my point of view, but I won't be flying with any of those three carriers any time soon.

        Two recommended "stories" from airwaysmag.com

        First one about the business class on a Finnair A330-300 and the second story about the Pan Am experience:

        https://airwaysmag.com/traveler/the-...usiness-class/

        https://airwaysmag.com/avgeek/best-o...am-experience/

        Reading about the Pan Am experience, I'm so happy to have flown with Pan Am before they went out of business... that was back in July of 1987 between Oslo and Miami, roundtrip. Clipper Mandarin was the name of the aircraft - as far as I remember, it was a B747-100SP.... (could be wrong off course).

        According to plane spotters.net, there was no B747 by the name Clipper Madarin... it was the name on a Douglas DC8.... so my memory is at fault here.

        I would love to hear if any of you others here have ever flown with Pan Am and what you remember?
        “Good evening Ladies and Gentleman, in just a few moments we’ll begin boarding Pan Am Flight 120. Our aircraft tonight is a Boeing 747 with the tail number N747PA. It is the very first 747 off the assembly line, and it is named Clipper Juan T. Trippe after the CEO and Founder of Pan Am.”

            Singapore Aviation Authority and Singapore Changi Airport Authority wants to find an airline to start a direct route between Singapore and Oslo (Norway)...

            https://www.nrk.no/norge/singapore-v...slo-1.13858285

            According to them, Singapore had strong bonds with Norway with around 2000 Norwegians living and working in Singapore. Additionally, a new route like this will be a giant asset when it comes to transport of fresh seafood from Norway (something Thai Airways is currently making great profits of with their TG955 from Oslo to Bangkok).

            Both budget carriers and "normal carriers" are sought.

            The most probable solution is to give such a route to their national carrier, Singapore Airlines, which will also receive a lot of new A350XWB aircrafts over the next years. Singapore Airlines already flies both to Stockholm and Copenhagen at the moment.

            Another option is Norwegian which already stops by Singapore from London. Norwegian has already been granted a landing slot for a Singapore - Oslo and Singapore - Copenhagen. The reason why Norwegian has not opened the route yet is that they are not allowed to fly the corridor over Russia.

            A airline agreement of 1956 between the Scandinavian countries and Russia, gives only ONE company access to the "Sibirian corridor", and that is SAS.

            Budget carrier SCOOT is also a possible alternative for a route like this.

            When it comes to Norwegian AVINOR, they hopes to make a deal with Singapore Airlines.

            Personally, I would love to see Singapore Airlines open a route between Oslo and Singapore with an Airbus 350XWB.
