I would think there are at least some air cargo demand to sustain cargo flights? Which can be covered by UPS, FedEx etc. Maybe for the boxes, but the actual freight, not really. Airlines aren’t flying cargo in the cabin because it’s fun. You must not be too familiar with the operations and capabili...Jump to post
Nobody forced these guys to sign up to work for this airline. Hardly surprising that a subsidy of an LCC would be forced to take paycuts before the parent company.Jump to post

I read a headline (behind a paywall) that Royal Brunei aren't happy with their 787-8's and they just refitted them with crew bunks. Not sure what the issue is but they leased a Wamos Air A332 for the BWN-DXB route and now a HiFly A330 neo replaced it. Not sure what the issue is or if these leases a...Jump to post

"Just out of curiosity, how much does the TAP business class seating weigh compared to Air Transats? TAP has not only more business seats, but quite a bit bigger ones too." If these are the same seats that they use in the A332 then they excellent. They go fully flat. TS's are more like ol...Jump to post
I am flying JFK-MAD-LIS and the JFK-MAD sector on an IB A-340, MAD-LIS sector an A320/321 and the return MAD-JFK on IB is on an A330. UA and other airlines on that route use narrowbodies. I am not a big guy (5'4"/164 cm) but for sure prefer widebodies for the ride, easier access to the loo's. ...Jump to post
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.

The diversion airport is noteworthy.

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 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.

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 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.

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 assure you, that Lufthansa and their regulators absolutely care about appearances.
