I am not surprised. Those slots are too precious for half-empty ATRs on fire-sale connecting fares. TAP's strategy in that area had no sense. If no other international carrier serves LCG or VGO, it is for a reason. I assume you are mistaking international with legacy , unless you consider TAP and R...Jump to post
I flew from the new EDI facilities last weekend and I can confirm: - The feeling is like entering a warehouse half-built. Even the finished parts look cheap and unfinished. Kind of MAD T1 (but 40 years later) - The seating is even more uncomfortable than it looks - Even the 3G signal struggles insid...Jump to post
Air pollution, especially in large Asian cities , is believed to be one cause of reliability issues that have affected a large portion of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000-powered Boeing 787 fleet. But the manufacturer says it is close to fielding a final fix to the problems. Dozens of 787s have been sitt...Jump to post

One of the still legacy soft products merging with one of the worst airlines in Spain. I will miss Cityjet as much as I avoid AirNostrum.

I'll never understand how we are any safer answering these questions. Every pax going to the US has gone through the same security as the passengers heading elsewhere.

Not really. The US Department of State considers Turkey as "Level 3: Reconsider Travel" "due to terrorism and arbitrary detentions". So on the same level as Pakistan, Venezuela, Congo, Sudan or most of Mexico. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladv...Jump to post
The windscreen "mask" is a standard feature on the A350 and A330N but isn't offered on the A320 series, unless the airline makes it part of their livery (a la AC). I don't think that's correct, in fact you seem to be completely wrong about that: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/841/41473914...Jump to post

That reasoning only works if the 320 was in competition with the 220, which really doesn't seem to be the case. How can you say this when it clearly just happened? Are the facts of the matter that hard to comprehend? I guess you have missed that competition with the 737-7 (and for extension the A31...Jump to post

With the addition of regional jets now a done deal it's time to look at the value of sales and delivery closer. Counting a A220 equally with an A380 when the latter costs five times more is just stupid. Considering that here so far a 737-7 and a 787-10 were dropped into the same bag, I’d say you lo...Jump to post
Because of Airbus and Boeing’s financial power, it was impossible for bombardier to market the CS300, because of market trashing by 737 and A319. This was deemed a credible threat and the CSeries program financially died. Then Airbus suddenly sells the CS300 no problem and may even make big profit ...Jump to post

Momo1435 wrote:Just for clarification, the A330neo order and the A350 order are separate orders.
The A350 is for a new customer, Airbus doesn't mention the same for the A330neo order, so it looks like it's a top-up order by an existing customer.
Isn’t Level getting 3 more A332s to reach their planned 7 strong fleet? Either they have to get 3 more from Airbus (via the IB order) or will they take the last used, from IB? Some of the new ones should be sent back to IB, desperately short in fleet and still suffering the "Level" experi...Jump to post
