Ah, Papua New Guinea the land of the unexpected, no matter what I still call it home.

Nothing beats an export lager and Air Niugini is surely the best airline in the world! :)

Re the delayed flight from Lae to POM. We arrived at POM around 10 pm on a Friday night, and I had no way of getting home (as my intended lift has departed hours before).

Not good.

I wandered out of the terminal and found a battered old taxi with no windows driven by a Hagen man who knew me from a previous trip.

He drove me home safely and we shared an SP or two together for his kindness.

PNG - the land of the unexpected.

I remember being stuck at Nazdab for four hours due to a delayed flight back to Port Moresby.

The Air Niugini staff took pity on us and sent someone back to town and bought Big Rooster chook and chips for all the stranded passengers!

Bet Qantas never did that.

Yes, very beautiful piece, love the article, so intriguing, and yes PX is one of the safest airlines in the world.... It records speak volumes....

An intersting and amusing article. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

I do love to see the Bird of Paradise pull into the airport when I'm on international flights.

And the service, despite our grumblings, I feel is quite good.

Heck, what other airline serves a six time gold medal winning beer as an ordainary beverage? Love it or leave it.
