Delta took over the old Pan-Am route to Oslo
and they are "fairly" friendly as far as giving rides, especially if ya are on the good-guy list.
Is Delta still servicing Oslo?
(I know TWA quit flying on Norway a while ago, and perhaps Delta did too? Or am I mixing up the Tel-Aviv routes that Delta pulled out of, but TWA kept, but are being discontiued with the AA takeover?)
I have been getting free rides to Norway for quit a few years as we have Sprint for long distance phone service and for every dollar ya spend on phone, ya get 10 points toward a free ticket on Air Frog. With a $800 to $1,000 monthly phone bills it adds up fast.
Also used frequent flyer miles on AA to get free tickets on BA from DFW to LHR to OSL. Even Club Class.
Been jump seating Fred Olsen between Germany and Oslo a few times: Great guys, first class service on that old Electra.
But that was also a few years ago and F.O. is long out of business?
Had the same discussion a few weeks ago on this forum and a UPS pilot promised free rides on their system. Perhaps that is the way to go these days, but ya can't sip champagne and chat up the babe next to you on them freighters..
The price however seems reasonable...
