This Week: 23 to 30 April

I am in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina today. Fly up to  New York City, before flying down to Buenos Aires,  the capital and largest city of Argentina. I know its the second-largest metropolitan area in South America, after Greater Sao Paulo. Any advice for Buenos Aires? Its my first time in Argentina!

I will only have three flights this week (only) on two airlines only this week: US Airways and American (ugh).US Airways have pleasantly surprised on my recent flights with them as to how much better they have come. I used to think they were not that good. I like them better than United and American.

The rumours are flying (excuse the pun) that USAirways may take over American.  US have the support of the AA Unions in favour of a merger. US Airways cannot make American Airlines worse! (I am a huge non-fan of American). I assume if that happened, then USAirways/American would be members of One World. That would mean each of the three big US airlines (Delta- Skyteam, United- Star Alliance) would be linked to one of the world alliances.

I note from my Flightmemory, that I will fly the 850th flight of my life this week and I am very, very close to two million kilometres in the air. Also getting close to 50 times around the earth. Over one circuit of the earth equivalent for every year of my life!

Have a great week.
