What airlines do players use to travel?

I've seen Venus and Serena travel by Cathay and Qantas, but I've never spotted any player on Singapore Airlines which, in my opinion, is the best carrier. Any sightings or insider information regarding this? I'm also curious to know which airline players use on a regular basis...

Re: What airlines do players use to travel?

I'd imagine most players travel with the National Airline of the country they represent.

Great Britian > British Airways
Sweden > SAS
Denmark > SAS
Norway > SAS
Finland > Finn Air
Germany > Lufthasna
Spain > Iberia

e.t.c

♠ Rebecca Peterson ♠ Johanna Larsson ♠ Sofia Arvidsson ♠ Jocelyn Rae ♠ Ellen Allgurin ♠ Malin Ulvefeldt ♠ Cornelia Lister ♠

And I would say that many book the cheapest flight they can get.

Re: What airlines do players use to travel?

i guess it depends on the tournament..if the tournament is sponsored by an airline usually that's the airline they'll use..for example qatar airways fo qatar open

Vika. Sabine. Vera. Na.
We only part to meet again.
mais c'est pas vrai, c'est pas possible.
