The OS (Austrian Thread)

Sun Sep 18, 2005 2:03 am

Dear Sires, (& Sire-ess's as the case may be)
Help !
I need someone to explain the OS situation... Im bewildered and confused.
So did OS buy a fresh new 767 and 777 or are they ex-Lauda machines ?
And more to the point does Lauda still exist ? Or does it exist but under full OS colors ?? I know Lauda has NIKI or Fly NIKI , whichever it is... actually its Fly NIKI isnt it cuz its got that nast fly on the nose of its planes..
So whats happening ? If OS did buy these machines, then why ? They have A340's now so why have 777's too ? and was there a requirement for 767s ?
(I guess obviously) So ok.. enough of my babbling...
I will open it up to you...
Please someone help me and put me out of my confused state AAARGH !!!
Ok ? Ready... Set.... Discuss !!!!  whistleblower  (hmm cheezy ? I think so...)

So where did Lauda go ?? Did they get hoovered up by the OS empire ?
and how many 777's did they have ? and did they all go to OS ? and what was the deal with the itallian arm of Lauda, was it a long haul carrier based in Italy ? arrrghhh ... so many questions...

OS merged with Lauda and all Lauda flights + airplanes went to OS.

The italian arm of Lauda was renamed ( was it Livingston? I am not sure?) and had nothing to do anymore with OS. I think Lauda Italy was sold after Nicky Lauda left Lauda...

well lauda air went almost bankrupt and os bought it up incl all planes!

they still recover hard from taking over laudaairs debt and a/c mix

laudaair is now the charterbrand of os and all 737 2xa320 and 2 767 retain the laudaair colors!

all others are repainted into the os c/s

laudaair italy has nothing to do with os and i think they are now operating as livingston

Will Lauda update their Business Class cabin? Although the service and food are comparable to First Clas the seats are pretty bad. can anyone clarify?

Will Austrian replace all their C Class seat (as Lauda now have become Austrian) and have a standard product?

Thanks
