The link says the E175s will be used for another, yet unknown, route. A while ago there was a rumor about KLM adding Bern using the E175. Could that be it? Was that a rumor or a "wish" by a bern-fan? Cause Bern is a really small city, and for the last year couldn't even fill a daily Skywo...Jump to post

Deboarding by stairs on a 747, you got to love that.
While the hard products seems somewhat outdated, the soft product seams good!
Hope you enjoyed it!
Depending how Loganair config their cabins the comfort level may or may not improve. However the overhead locker space will make a different. I believe the crosswind limit for the ATR is 28 Knots. It doesn't handle that well in gusty conditions, give me the Saab anyday, the 145s are also poor in cr...Jump to post
I think they are better prepared at least, especially oil-whise.
Problem is that with some airlines the amount of slimming and trimming has lit bare-levels. they can't cut cost more.
It seems that all the new deliveries of airlines are below wing engines, with the exception of ATRs, DH-8s and any of the CRJs, I was wondering, who has the largest T-Tail fleets? From a U.S. perspective, I assume Delta would be the largest with the 717s leased from WN and the MD90s/88s. From a reg...Jump to post
The A330NEO / A330 / A350-900 in the long term. Delta is so big in AMS you can probably see every type of longhaul plane Delta has at some time.Jump to post

Use the google: look at the thread's named "want to start my own airline".

First of all, it's a proposal with heavy, and I say heavy opposition. They say 540.000 is possible if they drop the no-acitive-4th runway rule. That's a big if. Secondly, slots are divided equally to those who apply. There is no slot-selling at AMS, it's a indepent governing body. They also can't de...Jump to post
Case of bad luck/just nog right's by Airbus newer planes, a cooling/crashed economic market when Airbus introduced the A330F and a lot of secondhand older planes available. Remember that many A320's are only 20'ish year old at the max, which is rather new for secondhand freighter conversions, the A3...Jump to post

Very simple, you can't call the police if someone misbehaves on a plane.So you have to punish/deter people from being stupid.
Drunk people in airplanes could require the plane to land early, leading to more cost (hotel/scheduling fuckup/delay payments) , all things airliners don't look forward to.
- Effects of the EU open skies agreement on legacy carriers - Transformation of networking. from early JV's (NW/KLM) towards alliances and large JVs now.' - Small hub-and-spoke networks, finding a niche in a saturated market. <-- think Icelandair/WOW Air for example. - Longhaul LCC, starting with La...Jump to post

Were these planes actually staffed by crew from Sun Country and Miami Air. They typically swap aircraft seasonally. Sometimes they are put into service before they get the hybrid livery one. As for me. I booked Carnival JFK-MIA and was expecting a 727 or 737 and instead it was a Lan-Chile 767 that ...Jump to post
Trying the well discussed (here) business model on the EU-South America/Southern Africa market. Could work on a smaller skill i suppose.
But I don't expect it to be as large or lucrative as the EU-US market, which is just way way bigger.

If Virgin Atlantic purchases Flybe could they rebrand themselves to Flybe to save on royalties for the usage of the Virgin brand? Sorry... what??

Nice Report! FYI: why they do early boarding/pen holding is that they can check a few things quicker: - is everyone there, or do we have no shows (bag offloads?) - prevents people from staying behind / boarding late, resulting in a large chance for earlier finished boarding. - speeds up the boarding...Jump to post
Does KLM codeshare with AeroMexico?
They could share cargo/passenger capacity and optimize it.
I don't mind, adds some colour and variation in the sea of A320's and 737's.Jump to post
Not skyteam, Westjet is very much interlined with DL-KLM-AF partners, so they woudln't be happy about that. Secondly, Air Transat offers point to point flights I believe, no transfer flights.

Indeed. In SAS' case, some 737 crews are getting A320 type ratings done in TLS by Airbus, rather than internally by SAS. If Airbus needs to offer the same to get KLM to order A320s, it will be done. I am sure it could be done, but it’s going to be an uphill battle. KLM seems to be a very happy Boei...Jump to post
Problem is that KLM is stuck between a rock and a hard place. On oneside they can't grow at Schiphol at the moment and the decision on what to do keeps getting changed, or delayed. This makes planning ahead difficult, but can also change what kind of plane you need. On the other side there is Air Fr...Jump to post
