Aegean airlines is expanding it’s network to Lebanon in S18 with the launch of 3 new seasonal flights to Beirut from Mykonos, Rhodes and Heraklion. These flights will operate in addition to the year round service linking Athens to Beirut. Do you have a source for this? Are you actually doubting the...Jump to post

What's going on with Birmingham? "Only" served by QR and EK, however both airlines losing a significant number of passengers. Birmingham is a strange one considering it's large catchment area but it is squeezed between Manchester and Heathrow and therefore it leaks traffic to both airport...Jump to post
MAN isn't really unique in the way that the title suggests. MAN has a fair amount of of long haul flights seen on a daily basis from 17 different airlines, I wouldn't regard that as being unique considering that it is United Kingdom's third busiest airport with long haul operations. It is true MAN ...Jump to post
My local port is MAN in the UK. MAN has some decent selection of long haul, we do get the odd random/rare flights though. Air India 737-800s use to go via here or BHX through delivery. Aside from that I do like the Hainan A330s or Cathay a350s and Saudi 787s that MAN gets on a regular basis. MAN is...Jump to post
If you look back at the previous posts it has already been discussed in great detail, although it has not been officially confirmed by either MAG or THAI the start date seems to have become public hence the reasoning of the addition of THAI on the Manchester Airport Wikipedia page albeit without a c...Jump to post
A leaked list of tenants in MSY's new north terminal shows Thomas Cook, so I guess an announcement of MAN-MSY should be coming soon.

The UK cruising operation is only one third of the whole TUI cruising operation. I'm aware of that. Still doesn't make your theory any more likely to happen in my opinion.

Why did they do this anyway? The white looked chic and the bare metal looked pretty crappy in my opinion. Eliminating the white paint was most likely done to reduce weight. USair and Western Airlines also eliminated the white around the same time. I wonder how much weight on average was actually re...Jump to post
I one hundred percent agree with you that there should be a Nostalgia forum for topics such as this so that the Civil Aviation forum doesn't get clogged up with pointless topics such as this one
I think that it would make a very good forum to discuss anything nostalgic.
The biggest concern, of course, is what would happen to Manchester City if EY went belly up. Now I'm really worried... WHY?

One thing that I find amazing looking back to the late 1970's and up until fairly recently the amount of African airlines and in particular the flag carriers of those countries that previously had direct flights to London and in particular LGW. It's quite an impressive list, Afriqiyah Airlines to Tr...Jump to post
The Europe to Africa aviation market has always intrigued me... there aren't many routes in the world which have more importance than many Europe to Africa routes. However, how many of these routes are subsidized and which ones in particular? Also, I was surprised to find only 10 African nations ha...Jump to post
Using Bangui, Central African Republic as an example which has an AF flight to CDG, there are many cultural and historic links between the CAR and France. Also, to have a direct link to the developed world is of great economic importance to a country which is one of the world's poorest nations. Als...Jump to post

Neither LIS or OPO could support flights by Thai as there is insufficient demand for either of them to do so especially at this point in time when there are more likely candidates for the airline to serve before considering the Portuguese market which is fairly small.Jump to post
Strange OPO not being in this list. There are a lot of cheinese and asian people in Porto or Northern Portugal, so a flight OPO-PEK (like Beijing Capital does in LIS) perhaps can have a lot of sucess. As your fully aware Portugal is not a huge country and the link from Lisbon to Beijing is quite su...Jump to post

Unless you have high status, no one gets a free seat assignment on BA. You pay for club world seats for sure. BA are on their fourth year on the route, I'm sure it was a 744 last summer as well.

Considering that the passenger variant is no longer being produced I would say no, and those remaining B767's currently in service or in the dessert are too long in the tooth for any airline to operate them viably.

MAN would be a good route (although SQ is there already!) so why not start BHX?! It seems they serve the main destinations in Pakistan, India and DAC in Bangladesh.
