Does anyone know if BA ZED applies to Africa? I'd like to go to Capetown, but BA is shown only in
the European section in the trip book.

Go to Jetnet and the ZED link and put in the city pairs. It should give you the flights and fare.
Enjoy SA.

Aloha!

I find the easiest and most accurate way to find information is to call the 1-888-933-5922 and press option 3. The staff at the non-rev desk has always been most helpful and accomodating.

They will even price it for you so you will have the exact cost. I just called them yesterday for a zed fare on UA.

Have fun!

The RR whistle Captain could have been Larry O'Day.

Seems to me the whistle blower had the first name of Tom. I think he always asked the passengers to peddle real hard.

Please tolerate a little story about another train whistle on TWA property.

Those whe flew with me for the last 20 years of my time with TWA might remember that I always wore a train engineer's cap (Oshkosh no less)while flying. They were great for keeping the sun off the ol' head. One year my wife gave me a train whistle to go with the cap and even though I carried it around I was never brave enough to blow it over the PA.

I did blow it once. One time we had a terrible time getting a 747 backed off the gate after a big ice storm in NY. After much slipping and sliding and starting one outboard engine we finally got the tug going in the right direction. To celebrate our successful effort I blew the train whistle into the interphone and then transmitted "all aboard". The mechanic was unimpressed and made his feelings very clear. Captain Carr was thoroughly chastised and never blew the whistle again.

Did I digress?
