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

Re: Obscure airlines chartered for 737 Max grounding

LOT are using Go2Sky today.OM registered.737-800.
I am sure they have a 787 floating around if they need extra capacity.

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:

Re: Flybe to start LHR - GCI

Would have thought Jersey would have been more popular.Also when the takeover finally happens who knows what the new owners will decide with regard to routes.

Re: Flybe up for sale

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...

Why are United still operating 757,s on transatlantic routes.Noticed UA71 Hamburg to Newark this morning.
Surely they have enough 767s or even 739Max if they enough range.
