Cannot understand why a small country that relies heavily on tourism let this happen.Plenty more airlines will go soon as predicted and there will be 10-20 major carriers plus low cost left

Re: Why does BA (and others) decide to use 20+ year old planes on specific popular routes?

Flew BA recently to JFK and service was excellent.Not sure why people dislike them so much.I have flown many more airlines that are far worse and for safety and reliability BA are one of the best.Who cares how old the aircraft is.Their 744,S and older 777,s will all be gone in a few years and then p...

Re: Why is there no FlightRadar24 alternative?

So basically you are saying you want something for nothing.FR24 offers all extra things for a small subscription.They are mainly run by volunteers who give up their time so people like us can have the opportunity to view this information. :mad:

Who wants to fly on Dash 8,s that are always breaking down.Customers are looking for alternative carriers but they operate some really strange routes which obviously do not make any money.

Re: Flybe drops Southend - Budapest, Glasgow, Manchester, Milan, Prague and Vienna. Anyone know why?

Flybe always starts new routes and then finishes them about 6months-1year later because they are not profitable.Always struggling and would not be surprised if they go bust soon.Using Dash 8,s on many routes does not help either.Instead of getting rid of some of the Embraers they should have got rid...
