This is just a guess, but this sort of thing sometimes happens when an airport has expensive fuel, or is not a good place for a crew layover. Suppose an airline wants to fly between airports AAA and BBB, which are a fair distance apart (several hours flying). In the normal case, the plane will fly from AAA to BBB, refuel, and fly back to AAA. Since there ...

What you are looking for is not called garbage bag although it certainly looks similar but a contractor's bag. Your typical garbage bag will be 0.7-0.9 mil where a contractor's bag will be 3 mil in other words 3-4 times as thick. Also, they are typically some 42 gallons meaning you will wrap the backpack in it several times further increasing the ...

Personal experience: We arranged our packs so there were no dangly bits to be damaged in the system. I would guess upwards of 30 flights this way, the total damage was one bit of the frame (note that this was long ago--external aluminum frames) was slightly bent but still serviceable. IIRC this required using some extra strapping materials. Obviously ...

The Global Distribution Systems are very complex animals. Wikipedia has an example for what you are doing here. You will get a PNR from Booking.com which contains the entire itin (flights, hotels, cars, everything) and there will be a VN PNR and a CA PNR. If the Booking.com email doesn't contain them (I do not know because I never use them for booking ...

The first thing to note is that flight schedules are typically (supposed to be) valid for long times. While (to the best of my knowledge) there is no common timetable change date as European railways typically have it, the same flight will be scheduled to depart and arrive at the same time over months. However, flying conditions—which depend mostly on ...

Flight schedules are based on estimates of how long the flight will typically take, and they include some degree of padding, the amount of which will vary greatly. A winter fight from a congested airport known for bad weather may be scheduled for substantially more than the actual flight time to allow time for de-icing and at least some weather-related ...

Its best to have 6 months extra on your passport flying around in Europe and surrounds. Same applies going in to Turkey, they also are quite strict (I have heard from friends). You also need an eVisa printed and in your possession prior to boarding some flights from UK to Turkey. Sorry you got caught by this. Im not sure if its an official national / EU ...

It happened to me last year, they didn't deny me boarding but said I may have trouble with passport control at the destination airport. No-one noticed though.

I do not know of any web-sites with that information. In Australia Jetstar is notorious for using a portable set of scales on a trolley at the gate lounge. It is random, not at every gate lounge and not at every airport but I have seen it in operation several times at Gold Coast and Melbourne. If your carry-on, including any handbags or computer bags, ...
