Tech Stops And Where To Stop.

Thu Jan 11, 2007 12:02 am

As a matter of interest, after this morning saw DL17 stopping at MAN en-route BOM-JFK for fuel, do airlines have preferred airports for this sort of thing? I mean, the flight could have stopped at FRA, or DUB, or SNN which are all DL destinations and probably not too far off the existing flight route.

Off the top of my old gray head:

Along route if possible.
On-line station, use your own contract fuel.
Suitable airport, without performance issues (hot & high)
Friendly government. Good security.
Fuel price differentials.
Landing fee differentials.

And some times it is just not multiple choice.
