From what I recall, the Pan-am flight which crashed in Lockerbie in 1987 began in Frankfurt, before stopping in London and on to the USA. Of course this was a feeder I guess, rather than an intra EU flight, but I'd be surprised if they hadn't occurred in the meantime.

It does not appear that any US passenger airlines currently operate flights within the EU. I assumed that if any such flight existed, it would be with one of the big four legacy airlines (AA, UA, US, DL) and at least one end would be at a major hub. I checked the Wikipedia pages for LHR, CDG, FRA and AMS, and none of them show flights on those carriers to ...

as Ivan said did you book both flights together because as specified in an other post and also on this website if it is not the case then it becomes your problem and you won't have any right to pretend to any kind of compensation: My connecting flights were booked separately.

As vclaw said you can use OpenStreetMap Data to find postboxes. An easy way to achieve this would be to use the Overpass API to download a GPX file and to add this to you GPSr. I prepared a sample query for Vienna and postboxes here. As you can see, you can export the data in different formats, one of them is GPX. Change the coordinates for other cities ...

There are a lot of postboxes and post offices mapped in OpenStreetMap. Coverage and accuracy may vary, but I think it is generally pretty good for most of Western Europe. Considering just how many postboxes there are, and how spread out they can be in rural areas, there will be some missing from OSM. Depending on what sort of GPS device you are using, you ...

Not sure about mailboxes themselves, but post offices, yes. Geonames is free, and in its datasets of POIs, check out the list of feature codes, specifically: S.PO post office a public building in which mail is received, sorted and distributed Most post offices have mailboxes, so even if it doesn't cover every street corner mailbox, it's probably a ...

Official documents can be found on the EU website. In fact, there is no such thing as a “tourist” Schengen visa, the main distinction is between a short-stay (no more than 90 days in a 180-day period) visa and long-stay (national) visas. But you must always specify the purpose of your journey on the application form. In fact, the standard application form ...

No special visa for the purpose of studying required. Of course, you're not able to get a job and work officially. The purpose of a visa is necessary in the case of a long-term (over 90 days) visa. From my experience, I had a 90-day EU visa and was able to visit a 6-week intensive language course. After that I was travelling to EU several times without the ...
