I saw one holding over London on a Sunday in late July. Filling the gaps for the grounded MAXes. I should think they could use the space, use of E195 to LHR seems like a waste of slots, especially given the size of the Polish community in UK and growing business ties. Both of which will soon decrea...Jump to post

This could cause quit a stir in the media if they found out.

Did you ask him if any of his colleagues have faced the nose down fault yet? The odds are they won't have of course And does he agree that the planes should be grounded until the software issues are fixed? He said that they personally never did but he knows of at least one crew that had it happen a...Jump to post
seems its due to need for UK overnight departure time planned for restricted Manila maintenance arrival slot for MRO company.

The diversion airport is noteworthy.
Does not show up often.
Isn't this where airlines are different from most other businesses? The customer should always come first. They pay for everything. They are number 1 above all else. Forget all this "if you didn't have pilots you wouldn't have an airline" crap. It's true, but customers drive the demand ab...Jump to post
I doubt that anyone who got an upgrade to F was flying for "free" or hasn't given the airline 10's of thousands of Francs, Euros or Dollars in business in 2018.Jump to post

I flew CGN-SEN return two weeks ago. Outbound the LF was about 60%, the return flight was close to full.
SEN as such is a nice airport, but I don't see a lot of demand from the inbound side. I believe I was the only non-local on either flight.
Planes are going to be camera’d up for evidence purposes soon enough and should be equipped with a holding area in the belly of the plane. I flew China Southern recently, long haul. They announced a not tolerance policy to misbehaviour during pre-flight announcements, and stated that there would be...Jump to post

The Chinese carriers tend to be the low price leaders for LAX-Australia services, and thus, transport single digit percentages of LAX-Australia traffic. I've seen fare differences of USD400-500 for LAX-SYD r/t via China versus nonstop options. All of the common routings connecting at either CAN, PE...Jump to post

I agree JOON is a good shout although they only just started in their current livery so maybe not?
For DL flights, at least, you don't have to pick up and recheck your bags if you're connecting to another international flight - so maybe that's what the F/A was referring to, but mistakenly mentioned not having to go through immigration as well. When did this change? Last May I connected in ATL co...Jump to post
Hi All, A few days ago I was on a Dash 8 (I won't say the airline in case it gets them in trouble) in Europe. I noticed that while doing the walk around, the First Officer hand propped both propellers. My flight instructor says that this is a complete no-no. Is it okay to do this on a Dash 8? Is it...Jump to post

I assure you, that Lufthansa and their regulators absolutely care about appearances. If an IAG carrier that is also a flag carrier in another country started a nonstop JFK-TXL route, they'd throw a fit (which is all I was every saying about the route). Recall that BA decided to create an entire sub...Jump to post

In Europe, NH currently serves: - BRU - CDG - DUS - FRA - IST (code-share) - LHR - MUC - VIE (code-share) - ZRH (code-share) The big gaps are, therefore, Italy, Scandinavia and Spain, and maybe Russia too. However, all of these markets already have direct flights to Japan (albeit, excluding some ma...Jump to post
Why would it be a flagship service? There is almost nothing worthwhile going on in Berlin that can fill the front of an airliner on a daily basis. Simply because it’s the capital, any non-stop to a world city (JFK, HKG, and the like) gets additional cachet and attention. My point isn’t that there’d...Jump to post
