Because of the dash Range MAN and DUB have been chosen to get that 'downgrade'. Love to see it try CDG or MUC! In other words, no conspiracy, just a small matter of how far they can fly. Either that or canx the flights all together. That should be obvious, but back to my question, is the reason the ...Jump to post
Airlineroute has reported that Icelandair are to use DHC8s on MAN services 2 weekly from 15th July to 14th September and will also be using leased A319s in July and August Hi David, I'm guessing that these changes are because of fleet shortages due to the continuing 737 MAX issues, and not pax numb...Jump to post
Lufthansa will increase MUC-MAN to 4 daily Monday-Friday from 1st November. Flights will arrive at MAN 1305/1310 and depart at 1355. They will use the A319/320 for this flight. This also means that the Lufthansa group will serve Manchester up to 17 Times a day to 5 destinations this winter (FRA 5 d...Jump to post
Not. A. Chance. May be not from Boeing. They are sometimes so old school. (Control yokes, no FBW, etc...) How do you think Boeing 777's and 787's are controlled? Plus quite a few systems in the 747-8? It's a misconception that Boeing don't do fly by wire. Like or not FBW is the future, for airliner...Jump to post
A321neo is a great aircraft, so good choice, for the 767's they should replace it with A338neo. But it is weird why din't they order B787 and B737-10MAX. If I am not mistaken they did order B787 and later cancelled it or they din't order it all? Agreed, the combo of A338 and A321NEO /LR would be a ...Jump to post
Remember who Flybe is owned by now , they will grow at LHR as a VS feeder . The timing is poor, though. The morning TATL flights are all missed, and VS doesn't have a particularly strong Asian network (that would depart/arrive in the afternoon). Exactly, slot hogging until brighter ideas come aroun...Jump to post
Good sign. Means the authorities won’t accept a quick software patch or other half-assed fix. Not sure how you tie all that together, but here's what we have: Teams from the three U.S. airlines that own 737 MAX jets were heading to Boeing Co’s factory in Renton, Washington, to review a software upg...Jump to post

There is absolutely more debts to come for HX, how HX is going to deal with it? More bailout? I wasn't aware Hong Kong airlines was for sale... It's mostly rumors.

Just wondering why helicopters in Hawaii use the runway at Hilo like an aircraft, then taxi 3 feet off the ground to the helipads. Even on the Kona side, the helicopters land along a “runway” and then taxi to the hard stand. But they take off straight up. It seems that taxiing such long distances a...Jump to post
Delhi from either Jet, Virgin or the fact they have applied for slots for the last 2 years, Spicejet if they can get hold of an aircraft.

I feel like Brexit is the new Y2K. Some of the stories about ATM cards are a joke...like the global systems would stop working for British cards only.

The last time CX served MAN they had their own lounge, it would be great if they brought it back. Would there be any point/justification for an airline to invest in a lounge, just for 1 flight a day?

Perhaps an opportunity to start some fleet consolidation around a particular family.... but I’m cynical. They already operate the A350-900, so I expect an order for some Boeing 777-8 to start flights to the USA, only to eventually find out that it's uneconomical and park them in the hot, humid Bang...Jump to post
This is IAG, so unfortunately eurowhite livery with a green shamrock tail. It's going to be simplified. Very unlikely they will do anything but white fuselage.

[*] They haven't even gotten the rest of the fleet painted into the new livery they launched well over 2 years ago, why are they now redoing another one.
