    Most Obscure Commercial Airline That You have Flown

    For me I would say Air Costa in India. When I flew them they had a fleet of 2 E170 and 2 E190. I flew on the E170. They currently only have 2 E190 and I have read they might be closing down. edit: According to wikipedia they suspended operations 28 Feb 17.

    Re: Best Status Run Options - A quick overview! [not the discussion thread] Does GEG get many good status run options? I was there last month and it would have been helpful, I'll be going back quite often for the next few years so that will be helpful.

    Points + pay help

    AIRwin, that's the reason I went with SQ, I was originally planning to go with one of the cheap airlines, so I hope the aircraft doesn't get changed. Using my bad mathematics skills I don't think it saved anything or much if I transferred to Krisflyer so I just went through VA, But I wish I...
