    Uruguay finding a niche!

    It is a natural hub for the southern region of South America.

    Now if only Singapore would do the same for Panama or Colombia and start direct flights that don't have to go via the US.

    Article says..:
    “Singapore carriers can operate like a domestic carrier in Uruguay and mount any number of services between cities, and vice versa.”

    I say...:
    WoooooW
    “And vice versa”
    What a great deal!!!

    Think

    The fact that we seem to be having the ability to board a Singaporean Tango is quite great indeed.

    With that in mind, you read about Gardel, el Argentino mas oriental? :)

    Do not misunderstand me.....
    1) I'm, within limits, in favor of “Open Skies” and “Free Competition on the skies” policies.
    2) I'm, in principle, against those bureaucratic mastodonts called “National Flag Carriers”.
    3) But I have to chuckle at the agreement that allows: “Uruguayan carriers to operate like a domestic carrier in Singapore and mount any number of services between cities”.........
    ....... How many “Cities” are in the One City State of Singapore?
    ....... How big ist the 700 km2 City State of Singapore?

    Ps:
    Gardes was French, botija...
    Y cada día canta mejor...

    But Think, how many functional air carries has Uruguay in its possesion for any of that above mentioned to be an issue? ;)

    As for Gardel, I'll just repeat his own words; “Mi Tacuarembó querido......”.... you know the rest.

    Uruguay doesn't seem to have any airlines that have aircraft with that sort of range. So this is a one-way think. Singapore Airlines flying into Uruguay and then on to wherever it wants. Falkland Islands? More air links? That would be a Singapore Airlines stop-off in the Falklands, and then on to Uruguay.

    Now we are on the same bølgelængde ;-)

    As for Gardes, I'll just repeat his own words; “Mi Buenos Aires querido......”.... you know the rest.

    “Think” and “Stevie”

    Funny how you both live in Scandinavia, both are commies, and both provide links and references on the same “wavelength”...

    You'd think so Troy, but then Again, look at you lot.
    All of you are delirious, all of you post hilarious crap and you all have fascist tendencies...

    What does that mean, you reckon?

    Gardes was born on December 11, 1890 at the La Grave hospital of a City whose name begins with “T”............................; Tolouse...

    Gardes soul belongs to a City whose name begins with “T”......................; Tacuarembó...

    Funny Danish “wavelength” is what I meant.

    Think makes references in Danish, you quote links from Danidh sources to me, you both interact in Danish.
    What are the chances of that?

    That's what I meant.

    It's all your fault...
    You have, in the past, mentioned Copenhagen a couple of times...
    And as any cultivated Anglo Turnip knows....., Copenhagen is the capital of the shire of Norway in the Republic of Sweden....

    I am now dreaming of a Monte-Cape Town-Singapore connection. Since Malaysian dropped its KL-CT-BA route last year I have had to fly SAA to CT via JHB, thus not only paying more but risking a Bantu trainee pilot since the “non-racial” ANC government declared they would no longer accept any new white trainee pilots. Señor Stink will now call me a “racist”, since he is so pure himself.
