Re: Lufthansa withdraws the offer for Niki

...even though the HG livery was about my least favourite when flying as a kid. IMHO their shiny silver fly on the fuselage front is one of the most remarkable design features in civil aviation :yes: ! I always thought that fly looked tacky, much prefered the OS livery even back then. I actually li...

Re: Lufthansa withdraws the offer for Niki

Sad to see them go, even though the HG livery was about my least favourite when flying as a kid. Still I'm somewhat glad that LH didn't swallow yet another european airline. I love flying the LH family (and I still think that EW offers the best experience out of any LCC I've ever been on) but they'v...

Re: CNN: Delta to order 100+ Airbus A321neo Aircraft

Quite happy with that outcome. From my amateur-ish perspective Boeing ruthlessly tried to extinguish BBD with their heavy-handed assault on the CSeries, screwing over DL in the process - and even though DL's decision now may have been made purely due to being offered a better deal by Airbus, it stil...

Re: Pilots stop 222 asylum seekers being deported from Germany.

No wonder Western Europe is screwed. People like yourself believe that you cant even deport illegal aliens because apparently that is a crime against humanity and could be equivalent to murder. We're screwed? Last I checked we were doing pretty fine. Meanwhile authoritarianism is on the rise in Pol...

Re: If you had a chance to fly on any historical aircraft...?

Concorde. Just a little bit before my time and such a seminal aircraft.
Caravelle: First jetliner in my home country (Austria). Recently saw one at the Flight Museum in Belgrade and somewhat fell in love with its shape.

Re: Planes that will be missed and those not

B717: Snagged a cheap flight on a V7 717 this fall and the spool-up sound of these sweet BR715s just does everything completely right. Comfort-wise also miles ahead of the B738 I took on the connecting flight. V7 is already replacing theirs with A319s, so it looks like Europe will be left without th...
