Thought for the day…”I’ll try anything once, twice if I like it, and three times to make sure” (Mae West).
“Sex is emotion in motion” (Mae West).
Up in the air……Who is the biggest? The largest airline in the world (in terms of revenue, profit and fleet size) is the American Airlines group. In terms of passengers, Delta is the world’s biggest private airline, with around 129 million passengers a year. Emirates Airlines (UAE) is government owned, but their revenue last year was around USD 24.2 BILLION. It used to be fun at one time, but now the security checks, check-in procedures and overcrowded airports have certainly taken the gloss away. I often wonder who actually votes for the airlines that ‘win’ the awards for the world’s best airlines, but Singapore Airlines get my vote…..as does Singapore Airport (SIN) for the world’s best airport. Norway’s Oslo (OSL) airport certainly deserves an award, not for comfort or for convenience, but for the lack of facilities and unpleasant surroundings. Every time that I fly into or out of OSL I am struck by what a DISGRACE it is for Norway. It does not get any better either.
Work means that I fly more than I would like but occasionally there are some perks….like this sunset last month, seen from an aircraft window in Norway….
and another photo from the archives…an unlucky weekend motorist (Ferrari) gets a ticket in Stockholm, Sweden….
