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. Is this how it works? Don't they have an obligation to honor my ticket since the cancellation is not coming from my si...Jump to post
Good news for TREQ I guess... Btw. what's their current status? They should have launched long ago, even one Dash-8Q400 was painted.

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.

I am bit surprised... AFAIK, ITA AIRWAYS AOC contains officially only a handful of planes. In my own opinion impossible with this small fleet to fly the schedule (I checked the FCO homepage).

I was wondering if there would be any difference externally that would make spotting one A321neo variant a bit more exciting compared to the other or will they be like B772 where you can't really tell the difference between either of the variants? What about the doors/exits? Most (all?) A321-200N h...Jump to post
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. A well trained crew can evacuate an aircraft much better organised via stairs, which is as fast as slides. And the injury risk is mu...Jump to post
FR are the kings of low cost in Europe. 10 years ago, 1 euro cent flights were available. More expensive ex UK, they cost 1 pence. LOL Not entirely true. In the moment CORENDON airlines is selling tickets for 0.45EURO, that is 45Cent!!! - less than 1$ plus Tax between Germany and Turkey. Also Vueli...Jump to post
Not only that The European Commission is reviewing the merger and competition grounds, UX seems in deeper financial trouble than expected. If IAG will be able to go ahead, they will most likely further to cut-price the deal... There is lot of uncertainty if UX will survive this winter.Jump to post
Narrowbody very easy to tell, BALKAN SOF-CMB with fuel stop in AUH on TU154!

Corendon released new fares from Germany to Turkey as low as 45cent, that is 0.5$, plus tax inclusive big handluggage... How on earth will XC survive this winter which such incredible low fares? I am tempted to book, but afraid to go nowhere in the end...Jump to post
Nice TR, Iceland looks stunning! According to Icelandair website lounge access is also possible in BER. I find it rather strange, that also no alternative, like a meal voucher, was offered.

Hi to you all, sorry, to get it straight, there will be no "Expressjet" around and the repaint of the first aircraft was for nothing? Or is this Reno based "aha"-operation just one of different future brands of Expressjet? Will all the Expressjet fleet repainted in this "aha...Jump to post
Very interesting aspect! On the official Boeing homepage, the 737-8-200 is certified with 210 seats maximum seating capacity.So there would be no real difference or advantage between 210 and 220 seats, just ten more. In my opinion, this was a smart and clever move, to seat less than 200 passengers o...Jump to post
Airframe is a 1987 build machine. It sat stored for a couple of years as Ansett decided not to take up their order. Thank you for clarification! Btw.

Nice TR, as always! Well, first flight on this frame was on 21/12/1989, so not quite 34years... Anyways, nice to see that the VLM signature interior survived, the cabin design was once state of the art and AFAIK in reference, especially the beige leather, of British luxury cars.Jump to post
So I'm curious: for those weekly flights to the Caribbean and elsewhere, do LO crews stay the whole week there or do they layover and then take another commercial carrier home? Or would they (could they!?) deadhead back to Poland? Returning home makes no sense at all. Normally airlines, in general,...Jump to post
And the winners, in my opinion, are:
ULCC: SPIRIT AIRLINES "Big Front" 2x2 seating
LCC: EUROWINGS "More Legroom" in the first rows of Economy
Keep the A333s surely?

They will be partially modified in the cabin but the product will be the one EY used. This A330, with the ex EY interior and BizClass, would be the perfect match for the new JFK service!

The seats look pretty the same as in the 737NG. Is there more knee space as MOL promised?

Does anybody know why Lufthansa rejected her to begin with? There were several problems! But I think the biggest was the B747-8i typical erratic vibration, especially on the first ones produced...

No, the fine applies for return tickets. So one of the reasons why it's better to book just one way!Jump to post

I love the EMB190, you can't beat 2x2 seating with no middle seat - can't wait to fly on the new -E2 version. But the SSJ is also a wonderful plane, which I would prefer over the A220, thanks to the revolutionary cabin design by Pininfarina - a true Italian gem!Jump to post
