Although I can smell politics and jealousy in their actions I am not concerned with la RAM being smaller or bigger than Air Algerie. To us, ordinary passengers, it is the service that counts. Unfortunetly both these airlines are a disgrace. La RAM Reviews [1] or Air Algerie Reviews [2] —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:04, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

more trivia: sources ??[edit]

trivia: there have been more incidents recently (after 2001) involving the fleet, especially concerning the formation of some pilots wich could've, in (if i do remember right) 2 cases, possibly resulted in disaster.

another one involved an airplane flying to agadir wich had severe reactor issues, these restarting only after some wind-surfing. in this case it was been found out that the kerosene provided for that flight from an african company was of low standard. if i do remember well, the RAM changed fuel provider after the incident.

those incidents were only reported in some independant moroccan newpapers, not official ones. can be sourced without problems. Omega Said 04:10, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Royal air maroc is larger than Air algerie[edit]

someone keeps changing the RAM article. they change it so it says that RAM is smalled than Air Algerie. This is incorrect. Please stop vandalising the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:06, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

List of largest airlines in Africa shows that RAM is larger than Air Algerie. The fleet tables show that RAM has a larger fleet. What other measure could someone use to say that Air Algerie is larger than RAM? --Matt 15:44, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Fleet table[edit]

I have already reverted the following three edits made by (talk · contribs), all to the fleet table of the article:

  • [3], addition of unsourced claims
  • [4], unsourced as well
  • [5], the reference provided does not support the claim it supposes to.

We're having a clear problem with the verifiability policy here. Can you please comment on this? Thanks.--Jetstreamer Talk 20:52, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Algerian War "Kidnapping"[edit]

In an infamous October 1956 incident during the Algerian war, four Algerian FLN leaders including Ben Bella (later to become president of independent Algeria) were flying in a RAM DC-3 from Morocco to Tunisia when they were ordered by the French to land in Algiers "for inspection." The French arrested the four FLN leaders as soon as the airplane parked on the ramp, and of course the Moroccans were furious at this insult to their sovereignity, but the French asserted that because the airplane had French registration, they had the right to "inspect" it. It helped that the pilot, named Gellier, was a former French air force officer. Reportedly, he had the stewardess somehow distract the passengers so they didn't notice the change of course.

Focus cities[edit]

The focus cities of RAM are not focus cities but secondary hubs . At these airports cabin and cockpit crew is based and depending on the flights RAM send more crew to there secondary hubs — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:59, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Do you have reliable sources backing your claims? If so then add them, be bold and fix what's wrong yourself.--Jetstreamer Talk 18:27, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
