No (some people try) stupid questions. What I guess.. The a320 serie is kind-off newer in the US, charter airlines usually/often use older or second hand planes. When they started the A320 was to expensive to buy, while the 737-300-400 was readilly available. When you start with 737 and you want to...Jump to post

From what I can tell, NW did not really have a first class that was beyond what they eventually offered in business class. Basically, I do not see where they had anything like TW where they would have had a first class, an Ambassador class and an economy class. It's possible the first class seats b...Jump to post
Yes KLM did. C and Y I thought KLM was the first, or one if the first, to offer the C product while keeping F. KLM had a period when they operated Business, Royal Class and Economy. However soon after the NW-venture they introduced World Business Class and the F-product was removed. **check, I foun...Jump to post
thanks for the report!
The peter-pan livery is a homage to a Transavia-based semi-charity which offers assistance for handicaped, sick and disabled children/youth so that they are able to enjoy a holiday as well, which they wouldn' t be able to do by themselves.
Don't expect a red-carpet service, with attendants bowing or treating you like a king, that is not the Dutch way. Its a "act normal, thats strange enough style" It's a personal, direct, interested and with a smile service. If you understand me! On EU flights you usually get a sandwich in e...Jump to post
I've heard they will launch the 797, it's the perfect plane for everyone, for North Korea as well. OT: The hypocracy if they would allow this, and make a fuss about the Iran deal... I wouldn't bet or wait for any kind of aircraft going to N-Korea soon from the western world. We've seen these reproch...Jump to post
The Max-10 requires a extra flight attendant. The Max5-200 can be worked by three attendants I believe if they only fill 199 seats of the plane. The FR planes are configured with 197 seats. Above 200 you need a attendant, which would cost Ryanair extra personel. I wouldn't expect the Max-10, unless...Jump to post

Wasn't the 747 in the back of the Top Gear Track the "Skyfleet S570" in James Bond - Casino Royale? 850 passengers in three class, by twin-dual engines, quite the set up for a real airliner, beat that A380.. It was originally a 747-200 (G-BDXJ) from British Airways. https://vignette.wikia....Jump to post
I would love to see RTM or EIN in the list. Dont no how realistic, but would be nice!Jump to post
There was another post about this I believe.
But I think this might be the step too far, no food and drinks and tight seats is one, this is another.
Majority of customers will be happy about no recline. Disagree entirely. On longhaul yes... But the EU majors aren't doing that. On shorthaul hell yes, try sitting in a charter flight to the med. with a (drunk) family who instant reclines and is up for no reasoning. Give me no recline on shorthaul ...Jump to post
LHR for nearly every plane, true flight time rom Amsterdam to London is nearly as long as the time spend in the hold above london (and taxiing to the Polderbaan). Amsterdam has one very clear just out of the coast near Haarlem, nearly always a few planes holding there. LGW is another, nearly all pla...Jump to post
I'm a heavy smoker and I used to take sleeping pills on long flights. Recently, I found ONE brand of extremely expensive nicotine gum that helps me to tolerate not smoking on the duration of the flight. Russia has outlawed also smoker lounges on airports, so I'm writing now from the parking lot, bo...Jump to post
What... I've heard they are re-eniging the very popular (in it's day) Fokker VII.
Wood and canvas materialscan be rebranded as hybrid ecofriendly composits. Also it's a triple-engined plane, which is a airliners.net major selling point for recreations!
I always think the BA-Midhaul planes look really nice. Same 2-1 / 1-2 layout in front and not the new BA-slimline seats for Eco. Plus IFE (rare in Europe on shorthaul).
I don't know if they have larger-legroom seats doesnt look like it, 31 inch (which is more then the new BA-seats).
Doesn't the Hajj terminal in JED have gates? It does, and that would count for a lot of passengers yearly, so Jedda is out. Even without the Hajj terminal you could be really nitpicking and say the royal terminal has two jetbridges as well. The new terminal opens soon as well and that is loaded wit...Jump to post

AE is wider, more outs and also offers non aviation/space specilisation should you change your mind in a few years .

This is really generic, and a lot of lounges have the points you mention like showers and decent chairs.
Only the food is average on a lot of places.
An airline usually doesn't tell this kind of stuff, as other airlines can undercut/outprice them, or nibble at the proffit margin. I don't know where the "they" comes from. would you mind sharing your source?Jump to post

I’m surprised Insel Air only has 1; I could’ve sworn they had a couple more of them.
After scrolling around various sites, I noticed that FlyBE/Easterns flights to the scottish isles have all but stopped except one stornoway flight. I heard the battle was heavy with Logonair, but it seems there is only one winner. Why did they (FlyBE) start this in the first place, they've gone from...Jump to post
Aaah, the synergy is working, finally Air France work ethics are being implemented in the Transavia/KLM-culture. Keep up the good work AF-KLM!

You cant. You have to exit the transit area, it's entry is in the Netherlands (so to say) and not in the International zone. So if you want to visit (don't know how long you have) you have to exit/pass the border, go the spotting terrace, then pass the security/border again, Re-Entering the transit-...Jump to post

Thank you. So at last, we will see the end of the bus rides from the Fokker Farm to the terminal and we'll get to use proper gates.... Don't get your hopes up too soon.
