Quoting Corey07850 (Reply 17): When will airlines get creative and use names that aren't Air-______ or _____-Air/Airlines??
I'm surprised Mexicana hasn't raised a fuss over the name since they had it first. I know I know, different country, continent and wording. But still. Not very imaginitive I agree. It could be worse, it could be "Viva! Aerobus".
It seems to be what happens to aircraft that are new to the Spanish register. I once flew on an Air Europa B733 which was registered EC-262. It didn't carry that registration for very long - no more than a few weeks after it was delivered to AEA.
Clickair will start selling tickets on Thursday (Sept. 7) and will start operations on the 29th of October.
First destinations will be (all from Barcelona): Valencia, Bilbao, Malaga, Sevilla, Amsterdam, Dublin, Geneva, Zurich, Prague, Lisbon, Porto and Moscow. However, the launch of some of these destinations could be delayed.
It's still unknown which company will do the handling for Clickair in Barcelona (because Iberia Handling lost the concession for this airport).
Clickair, as many other LCCs already do, will try to increse the use of each aircraft (compared to Iberia), therefore it will have up to five crews for each aircraft (instead of three that are common in Iberia).
Well, and concerning the interior of these aicrafts (this is not mentioned in the article), they will probably be very similar to Iberia. Seat covers may be changed and business class would be removed.

25 IberiaA319: That picture was on Clickair's website until today, with the wrong Airbus A300. Now it has been changed and an A320 is being showed instead!! See:
26 RootsAir: If you check out the A320 it has the A300 wingtip fences !
27 Lovinitflyboy: Looks good, but not on the A300! but then i was never a fan of that aircraft, nothing looks good on it or the A310.
28 Stirling: Great Looking airplane. Boring Name. Might as well have called it "Airline Airways", or "Air Airlines", or something just as original...
