Re: BA to permanently close LGW short-haul ?

The rumour mills have been speculating BA would pull LGW shorthaul in favour of a Vueling / Level like set-up for several years now.

In the current situation, I think it makes complete sense to roll mainline back and replace with a leisure focused substitute. Something like Vueling UK.

Re: What airports had the most turns per gate (pre-Covid)?

I suspect it will be somewhere with very few legacy carriers but a sizeable LCC or ULCC presence. An outstation would be even more efficient, as there are unlikely to be planned ground stops to catch up time, but there may not be enough rotations per day for it to be a fair comparison. STN, WMI, NRN...

Re: Atlas B744, PVG, Aug-5-2020: triple engine pod strike

This makes me think of Kai Tak, and the many 'extreme' landing videos of 747s occasionally striking pods, then over-correcting and almost striking the other side too. But hitting both pods on a wing - impressive.

Glad everyone is safe.

Re: Australian startup looking for 757/767 pilots

Ventures don't get this far without the numbers stacking up to at least a few people. For all we know, they could be offering low frequency charter flights to a smattering of holiday destinations, meaning more expensive equipment simply isn't viable.

Time will tell, but I wish them well.
