After a press conference today, the airline announced that SAS will leave Star Alliance and join SkyTeam, after being acquired and partner with Air France, KLM, and others. Here’s what you need to know.
Alitalia is reported to leave the SkyTeam transatlantic joint venture on May 21. That revenue stream will now disappear, but Alitalia will be free to pursue its own commercial strategy or to join another alliance or joint venture. All other SkyTeam transatlantic carriers will operate under a newly-created joint venture that now also includes Virgin Atlantic, in which Delta Air Lines owns a 49 percent stake.
KLM Hamburg to Amsterdam Economy Class Review. Late night flight with KLM CityHopper from Hamburg to Amsterdan on a regional jet: Embraer 190. Amazing service and meal for a 40 minute flight! Full takeoff and landing videos included, quite turbulent approach and landing in Amsterdam.
Air France 777-300ER Full Landing Video: Rio de Janeiro GIG to Paris CDG (in OLD Business Class)
Throwback to a 2016 video of a landing in Buenos Aires, Ministro Pistarini Ezeiza Airport. I was travelling in Business Class from Rome to Buenos Aires (the meal service was great BTW). Will try to post a review soon, although Alitalia seems to be going out of service soon if they don’t revert their financial situation. What a pity to see another airline struggling!
Amazing Air Europa 787-9 taking off from Madrid Barajas to Las Palmas. Beautiful afternoon takeoff in Business Class.
Aerolineas Argentinas / Austral Embraer 190 taking off from Ushuaia to Buenos Aires (Aeroparque) on a beautiful winter morning. I shot this video with two simultaneous cameras (both sides of the plane).
