EU bans almost 100 airlines from its skies

An airline used by thousands of British holidaymakers to fly to Thailand heads a list of 92 "dubious" carriers which are to be banned from flying to or over all 25 EU countries after failing safety tests. Phuket Airlines, which was barred from British airspace last year after an in-flight fuel leak, has been added to the banned list which will come into force tomorrow.

The 92 passenger and cargo airlines, mostly based in Africa, include all but one of the 51 carriers operating from the Democratic Republic of Congo and all airlines from Equatorial Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Swaziland.

Who in their right mind would ever step on a plane owned by an airline called "Phuket Airlines"? I wish they had t-shirts cuz I want one!

LOL, I just have a hard time believing there is an airline with this name. I keep expecting somebody to jump out and yell, 'babba booey!'.

babba booey! Shows how stupid and narrow your little world is. If you didn't live in a right-wing cave you'd know this is a legit name for restaurants, airlines, car rental places. What a cum-quat!
BTW, are you still typing with one hand?
