Aurigny, serving the Channel Islands. They seem to have seven routes, or possibly eight depending on how you calculate it.

I promised QM I'd keep jogging along as an also-ran, so my humble offering for this round is Salmon Air out of Salmon, Idaho, which offers regularly scheduled daily commuter flights on two routes: Salmon to Boise, Idaho, and Boise to Salmon--as well as chartered flights to other parts of the state.

My little brother used to be a pilot there but has since moved on to the far more cosmopolitan Big Sky Airlines, with routes serving 21 cities in 7 U.S. states.

I'm going with Air Rarotonga, partly because it's a cool name and partly because I'm hoping its 13 routes will be lucky for once!

ETA: People struggling to find maps for some of their favorite small airlines can click on my link and delete the "Oceania/Air_Rarotonga" bit.

My daughter was here last week and we played one of our favorite games, Take Off! You have to fly from Hawaii circumnavigating the globe back to Hawaii using 'air routes' that are controlled by the color on the dice. Roll a Take Off! card, and who knows where you'll be off to! Our version was around 1989, so there's been a lot of changes since then, (did we have little 'facts' on the cards, nah!) but we all have a great time playing it.

Since one mustn't let Comet worry, I will go with American Airlines, the world's biggest in terms of volume if not number of routes. Here's one of 14 pages of route maps for the airline.

I might recommend Aloha Airlines for anyone looking for a nice small route map (click on a city to see the routes).

I think that there's 38 routes shown here.

Qantas routes number 81.
Qantas roots number 1: just ask Ralph Fiennes.

And for the next round, if I am late, my answer is 27.8 of Beethoven's Fifth.

Well, I liked the sound of these guys - Tiara Air a small operation working out of Curacao in the Caribbean. According to Wikidpedia there are 8 destinations looking here , but I can only count 3 on the official website. (Go to timetable). Anyway, I hope that will do the trick.

I liked the sound of Tiara - perhaps all their flight attendants wear one! [Big Grin]

Heli Air Monaco.

It has one route, between the Principality of Monaco and Nice, France. (Nice Airport and Monaco Heliport.)

The site is being overhauled and doesn't have a map; but if you look here, you can see both Monaco and an arrow to the Nice airport.

Here is Lonely Planet's guide to Monaco.

Here is Princess Palm Tree's Monaco goList on TripAdvisor. It includes a recommendation for Heli Air Monaco.

Favourite quote from or incorporating a Dave. Just a thought.

We can do this.

You must pick a Dave, any Dave that has not already been picked. You must name that Dave. You must also add a quote from that particular Dave.

If everyone posts then we will have a vote on our favourite quote. The least favourite quote will be eliminated.

Good Luck Dave.

But which quote to pick?

Since this is too long for a transcript, I'd better go with:

"We spend our lives on the run: we get up by the clock, eat and sleep by the clock, get up again, go to work - and then we retire. And what do they give us? A clock."

"A gift, for the beautiful new goddess of the airwaves."

~Dave Reimer, said on bended knee, while offering me a roll-aid.

The story -

Dave was my boss - the news director at KHNS in Haines. He hired me and trained me up with humor and attention to detail and a light-hearted, you-can-do-it attitude which made a very intimidating job easy.

The particular gift was offered to me a few minutes after I had finished my first ever live morning news program as anchor. I shook, I had tears rolling down my face, but I got through it and sounded - well, we won't go there - but I didn't quit. when I segued back to the national news, I ran to the bathroom and threw up.

Dave was at the door of the bathroom, on bended knee, with tummy reliever and a huge encouraging smile when I opened the door.

He died at age 47 about two years later at the stroke of midnight on the dance floor of the Red Onion Saloon in Skagway. He was a trained operatic singer, Shakespearean actor, and did clowning by choice - news by necessity.


the only online mention of him I can find is his obituary, here. Scroll down.

I miss him. [Tear]

I'm not sure if this is allowed, I have two friends both called Dave and they were having the following conversation, it made me smile!
quote:
"It's only a white Christmas if you are 6 feet under!" - Dave 1
"You mean dead?" - Dave 2

If that isn't allowed then I'll choose the following said by David Frost
quote:
Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.

Had to go before I finished. Death Race 2000 is the creator of a most popular car game Rate the Collision . If you ever decided running over a teenager worth 100 points I am sorry to disappoint but teens are only worth 40 points.

Of course, we all need to join in a rousing chorus of These Are the Daves I Know this round as well.

OK, I choose Dave Grohl, drummer from Nirvana and front-man of the Foo Fighters.

Here is a site with many quotes, but I found this one to be humorously modest:
quote:
"All I really had was a suitcase and my drums. So I took them up to Seattle and hoped it would work."
.

As an aside, did anyone know that UKTV 2 is going to be renamed as Dave for its launch on FreeView in a week's time?

I shall pick Dave Prowse, the man who physically played Darth Vader in the original 3 Star Wars Films.

He was Also the Green Cross Code Man on British TV

quote:
always use the Green Cross Code, because I won't be there when you cross the road"
you can see a clip from the BBC here
