Re: SQ cancelled plans for BRU, are loads that bad on EU flights?

Singapore does not allow international transit, so even if you're on a flight BKK-SIN or KUL-SIN or JKT-SIN (the bread and butter connections), you're not allowed to take a connection, even though you'd stay airside all the time. That cut off significant revenue potential and gave traffic to QR, EK ...

Re: Minister: THAI "Financial Status Critical"; Rehab Program Failing

There are many things wrong with TG, but it all starts with PaxEx i.e. customer experience. You can't hide inefficiencies in front of passengers, and their triangle flights are the very best example of how no matter which class you fly, experience is equally bad. Let's take BKK-PEK route for example...

Re: LH to order 100 B737MAX or A320NEO next year

Could this be a favour to Boeing to bring back some confidence after all this bad PR? That was my thought for a moment as well. But why would LH of all companies do that? You do understand the history of Boeing and Lufthansa? It dates from the beginning of both companies, before WW1 and WW2... We'r...

Re: United Airlines "Evolution" to Globe Livery coming in April

Just preparing y'all for the inevitable: https://i.imgur.com/bGKufHG.jpg Sadly - I think this is waaaaaaay more likely. Its eurowhite with the current fad for tail design (QF, LH, IB, EI, AS, AV etc), plus it gets rid of the gold and modernizes the meatball - basically checks all the boxes. Only mi...

Re: Laudamotion to become Lauda

Great news. LaudaMotion is just awkward and strange. In English anyway. This was the plan from day one, as there has always been a tug of war between Niki Lauda and Austrian. When the government forced a merger between Lauda Air and Austrian Airways, naming rights for "LaudaAir" and varie...

Re: 737Max Impact on 797 Launch

In a way, some things make me giggle, especially in the fanboy section. First and foremost, there is no 787 Dreamliner without Airbus. They cannot fly without Airbus, because it is an Airbus company that builds the pressure bulkhead for the Dreamliner. Well, technically, it could fly under 10,000 fe...

Re: Should airline regulators consider grounding B737 MAX series

While I do respect every individual on this board, public transportation, regardless of the mode of transportation - safety comes as a number one priority in any operation. There's nothing nationalistic (if this was happening to an EU-made airframe, I wonder which side of the pond would be calling f...

Re: Why is SQ non-stop flying to EWR and not JFK like the other flight via FRA?

The answer is quite simple. From the posters here, 99% is referring to EWR flight as a feeder for New York. Without going into dynamic between Jersey and New York, SQ launched the original flight because of need to serve Jersey state as well, as several Singaporean companies or companies Singapore f...

RE: Use Of Metric System In Aviation

Currently live in US, and it is funny to drive next to a traffic sign showing San Francisco 25 mi / 40 km. So, there are some signs of duality in US. But what does not make any sense is when in US I hear a word "ton" for measurement unit. And that same "ton" is 2240 lbs.... it's 1000 kilograms. &nbs...
