Why do you think Go Airlines was so hated?

Why do you think Go Airlines was so hated?

Travel
Go was an airline that did interisland flights in Hawaii with their focus being on low ticket prices operated by Mesa Airlines. They had a fleet of two 50-seater CRJ-200 jets serving 5 airports: Honolulu, Kahului, Kona, Hilo, and Lihue. They launched on June 9, 2006, with normal fares starting as low as $39, about the same price as Island Air but cheaper than Hawaiian Airlines and Aloha Airlines, who typically started around $49-59. However, Go's special promotional fares could go as low as $1 sometimes. After Aloha shut down on March 31, 2008, Go increased their ticket prices to match Hawaiian and start flying at a profit, and those insane promotional fares disappeared. Go was not well received by local Hawaii residents and failed to turn a profit over its life. Go's 50-seater C...

Has anyone here ever traveled with Funjet Vacations?

So I booked a trip to the Caribbean with Funjet Vacations and I wasn’t issued a reservation number for the airline.

Has anyone here been in this situation with them? submitted by /u/BrNetz [link] [comments]
I want to travel to all countries in the world, but I’m not sure how.

I want to travel to all countries in the world, but I’m not sure how.

Travel
I have been reading about people who have travelled to every country in the world and it has inspired me. I'm not in a hurry though. Also I should mention I want to somewhat plan every major trip beforehand, learn about the culture and language and actually experience the essence of the country, not just stroll by like any other tourist. And even if I don't travel to every country I would like to experience every major culture, but I'm not sure what the best way would be. So for example, traveling trough all of South America in a few months seems like a smart idea, this way I could take advantage of the proximity and connections between countries, and also of the fact that I speak Spanish.

Virtual travel!! Where to go on my treadmill “walks”

Virtual travel!! Where to go on my treadmill “walks”

Travel
Apologies if this is the wrong sub for this. My treadmill lets me map walks and shows me the google pictures as I go along. I did Prague today and walked across the Charles Bridge and through the streets, it was lovely! Where should I walk? In my mind I’m seeing quaint German villages or beautiful parks. I’ve hardly traveled at all, so I want to use the pandemic to see places this way :) Bonus if you have a specific place within a place that I could easily map. Thanks so much!!! submitted by /u/carose89 [link] [comments]

A few friends and I are sorting out a trip to Vienna then around other European countries summer 2021. We are having trouble deciding which option to actually get to Vienna would be best, we all live in England and thinking of leaving the UK in London. We can't decide which option of train or plane would be more hassle. Can anyone help? submitted by /u/Sdebres03 [link] [comments]
