Comment on Sunrise Airways to Operate Scheduled Service between Haiti and Santiago de Cuba by AJ http://www.airlinesanddestinations.com/airports/sunrise-airways-to-operate-scheduled-service-between-haiti-and-santiago-de-cuba/comment-page-1/#comment-124903 Fri, 24 Nov 2017 21:45:54 +0000 http://www.airlinesanddestinations.com/?p=33888#comment-124903 I booked a flight with Sunrise from Port-au-Prince to Havana, Cuba for $450. My flight was scheduled for 8:00 a.m. I arrived by 6:30 a.m. to the airport, I checked a bag and went through security. At 7:50 a.m. the passengers began to line-up by the stewardesses booth under the impression that we would begin boarding. At 8:10 a.m. the stewardesses told us in Spanish: “Tranquila. Tome asiento” or “Calm down. Take a seat”. We made an inference that there would be a short delay perhaps because they have to clean the aircraft. Two hours went by without an update from the stewardesses or an announcement on the loudspeaker. Each time a passenger asked for an update, there was no information provided. At 11:34, I Whatsapp’d my mother and asked her if she could contact Sunrise Airways on my behalf. I gave her my flight number. When she called the Dominican location, she said that it did not even sound like a real business. It sounded like she had called someone’s house. The representative could not explain the delay to her. It was not until she called the U.S. location that they told her that the flight was canceled. I relayed this information to the Cuban passengers. I thought to myself that we will probably get on a later flight. Closer to 1 o’clock, the stewardess called me forward asking to see my boarding pass and passport. I am thinking that we have begun boarding procedures. But when I saw her write my name down on a white piece of scrap paper, I called my mother again to ask what is happening. My mother called Sunrise and they said that they were now putting the passengers up in hotels because there will be no flights to Havana for the rest of the day. They did not give us a specific flight time for the next day or the name of the hotel. I made the decision not to continue with the new flight because I just did not have enough time nor did I trust the company at that point. I should have paid more attention to the fact that these stewardesses had no technology when I checked in. By no technology, I mean there was no computer, no system. They checked us in on a tablet. Once we got to the gate (if you could call it a gate), they were equipped with an old model of a Motorola walkie-talkie and their cellphones. When I contacted Sunrise Airways for a full refund, at first, they tried to tell me that all tickets are non-refundable and that they would issue a voucher. But when I said that the cancellation was their fault, they said they would fill out a form to request the refund but that, if approved, it would take at least 90 days. I went ahead and filed a dispute with my credit card.

A word of advice: Do not fly Sunrise. It is a fraudulent company.

Comment on Allegiant Air to Launch Service between Bozeman and Phoenix-Mesa by Doug Morris http://www.airlinesanddestinations.com/airports/allegiant-air-adds-service-between-bozeman-and-phoenix-mesa/comment-page-1/#comment-120155 Fri, 21 Jul 2017 18:48:08 +0000 http://www.airlinesanddestinations.com/?p=8494#comment-120155 I drove from Phx Mesa airport to Tucson and Green Valley 20 min south of Tucson many, many times. 2 hr on the dot drive from the airport to my parents doorstep in GV. Allegiant flies from my hometown in Indiana so it was easy. Rather drive 2 hr in beautiful desert than in midwest (especially if winter). Very easy drive and cheap Alamo rental cars out of Phx Mesa that are EXTREMELY easy to drop off upon your return to Mesa airport. I’ve taken a shuttle once from the large Phx airport (Skyharbor) when I flew Southwest and wanted to fly Southwest home from Tucson. The shuttle is pretty cheap (~$50) and reliable. Couple companies available.

We hope that they will make the Esperance (French side) airport open to flights from JFK so we can travel more easily with Dutchess our 2 kilo maltese. For the moment we ONLY go through Puerto Rico when we travel 3x a year to St. Barth. They are very dog friendly! I have another friend who since they Princess Julianna made it difficult to enter with a dog only goes to the US virgin islands. Au revoir et Adieu Princess Julianna. We will see you no more…

Comment on Expansion Sees Brussels Airlines Add Toronto and Study New Africa, India Routes by Chris Kjelgaard http://www.airlinesanddestinations.com/airports/expansion-sees-brussels-airlines-add-toronto-and-study-new-africa-india-routes/comment-page-1/#comment-97049 Tue, 29 Dec 2015 15:14:14 +0000 http://www.airlinesanddestinations.com/?p=37723#comment-97049 That’s a very good point. But does Star Alliance regard Lisbon’s Portela Airport as a sizable hub? Star certainly regards Brussels Airport as one (Brussels competes most with Amsterdam and Paris, both of which are SkyTeam hubs).

While United Airlines serves both Brussels and Lisbon, it’s pretty clear that rather more Star carriers serve Brussels year-round than serve Lisbon, including long-haul carriers such as Air Canada, Thai Airways International, Ethiopian Airlines, Egyptair and potentially Air India.

The reasons for that are two-fold: one is Brussels’ de facto status as the capital of the European Union; and second, that all these airlines feed to and from Brussels Airlines’ extremely strong long-haul network throughout Africa; a network that only Ethiopian Airlines and perhaps Turkish Airlines can begin to emulate.
