Oh yes! SPANTAX, what a wonderful idea...
I am a big fan of all those, little and exotic charter airlines. Impossible to book, other than a week long holiday, and still a gamble if the plane showed up on the day of departure, like Peach Air, Nordic East, Air Ops, AirScandic, AV8 Air etc.!
Different media reporting that tt looks like Iberia is considering strongly paying the 40m Euros and walking away from the purchase. Wouldn't it be easier and just to wait? I mean, there are clearly signs, that the EC watchdog will never approve a merger under current market conditions. So wouldn't...Jump to post

...their new Airbus A330NEO, I hope they will install a more updated version of suite type seats and the wide interior will make their products even more attractive. But first, Condor will lease in ex Etihad A330ceo for crew training in preparation of the A330neo. So this will be a major improvement!Jump to post

Do Vueling actually need an A330 or is this giving EI crews flight time before the summer surge in 22?. It does seem like an odd set of routes for a wide-body!. Nope, the A330 will fill the gap, until more A321neos arrive... As I said before, I really can't imagine that this will be a story of succ...Jump to post

How could any goverment allow an airline do this to their passengers and still allow to continue flying for more years? The Italian CAA (ENAC) did, in my opinion a fantastic job and suspended several times their infinite AOC, replacing it with an interim licence to sort out the financial problems. ...Jump to post
The order sounds like a complete overdose... 20 A320 to replace 9 A319/A320 and maybe 2 B757 plus 9 B787 to replace 4 B767/A340. So AZAl is expecting a massive international growth?Jump to post
Also the demise of LUKE AIR might play in their cards, if they are smart and clever! LUKE AIR was chosen for long-haul charters by Čedok tours, Gullivair A330 would be a perfect replacement!

As expected, CX has canceled the second leg and now UA is saying all the other options to rebook are really expensive and asking me to cancel if I don't want to pay the difference.

Manchester United is not alone with this nonsense...
Bayern Munich recently charted not one but TWO DO328 of Private Wings to fly from OBF to CGN... Ok, the runway in OBF us not long enough for larger jets, but flying instead from MUC with just one plane would have been an alternative.

Twitter vids are certainly interesting. Evac a plane with slides on an after runway is a pretty extreme measure. In my own opinion, as crew member, it's over the top.
