The other thing to consider: how much longer does KLM plan to operate the B744 freighter? There are four remaining freighters on the active roster: PH-CKA/B/C (Boeing 747-400(ER) freighters), and PH-MPS (Boeing 747-400(BCF), Martinair livery). PH-MPS is 30 years old, and PH-CKA/B/C are approaching ...Jump to post
Um, if your European then what a short sided comment. Does Europe , especially Greece and Spain, not need tourism revenue ? No, it isn't a short sided comment. Tourism in Greece and Spain is almost completely depending on intra-Europe traffic, for example: tourists in Spain in 2018: 82.7 million, o...Jump to post

Lessons we should learn from Covid19: Stop global travelling! This pandemic wouldn't have happened if people travelled only within their own regions.

You know what is wrong? People happily willing to sacrifice grandma's life for financial gain or the economy.

What about the elderly who recover from this? Should they also be killed in purpose because they reached an advanced age? If they do so without hospital treatment that would be perfectly fine ofcourse. Yeah, I'd also like the see them say it to the face of their older relatives. Hah, nahhh. Why sho...Jump to post
Let the old die this, let the old die that. Those pushing this idea don't see to grasp that this virus does NOT only kill the old or those with underlying conditions. They are the major part of the deceased, yes, but far from being the only ones. No, they aren't. So far here in the Netherlands: Aro...Jump to post
They publish a lot of rubbish, but their financial articles are usually quite good actually, like this one. I think it's a great idea, a combination of 320neo/321neo to replace the whole 737NG fleet. All -700's, -900's, and the older -800's can go to the scrapper, while the newer -800's can go to Tr...Jump to post
Aren't many of their routes already operated by Neos or Blue Panorama anyway (like the Maldvies, Red Sea, Africa, etc)? I guess there's no real net loss of any unique routes that aren't already operated by those guys or Alitalia. They don’t have a single route indeed which isn’t already operated by...Jump to post
Although obviously an exceptional diversion situation, it is one of the shortest medium sized jet aircraft flights with passengers I am aware of. Shorter route, larger aircraft, although without passengers: https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news/83679-qatar-air-cargo-cancels-troublesome-nine-minut...Jump to post
The only 'safe' airline from Bristol would be Wizz Air, as they have never served Manchester (yet) nor do they have secondhand aircraft operated by previous airlines to/from Manchester. All other airlines operate to both Bristol and Manchester or have done so in the past. easyJet, Ryanair en TUI wou...Jump to post
What I don't understand is if the 737 MAX deliveries is the real problem, then why are they getting rid of older aircraft? If they're really need more aircraft they could extend leases or defer selling them. This year 9 737-800's have left the fleet so far: EI-DAC, EI-EPE/G, EI-ESR/W/X/Y/Z, EI-EVD.Jump to post
Maybe they had better not added this aircraft type to the fleet, just like Wow Air would have been better off by sticking to fly A320's and A321's only? Adding widebody aircraft is always a great way for a small airline to burn money and go bust eventually. flyglobespan, bmi British Midland, WOW ai...Jump to post
Didn’t KK also have the oldest fleet among passenger Turkish carriers? That likely didn’t help either. It will be interesting as to who tried to grab slots at outstations. Tailwind and Onurair have older fleets (as far as I know), but in comparison to them the fleet has always been kept in good con...Jump to post

VS are prime candidates for the TCX* series A332’s at around 10-11 years old. They are perfect aircraft to expand the MAN ops and fill some of the long haul void left by TCX. Why on earth would they want to add three more oddballs to an existing fleet of just four other temporary oddballs which wil...Jump to post
Easyjet at Heathrow is a waste, when the third runway does arrive full service airline from around the world will fill its slots day one. There are plenty London airports for the LCC airlines.

Any picture so we can see for ourselves if it exited the runway ? I second this comment. Surely there must be some photos at least, even though we know it didn’t leave the runway. I agree as well. I can't seem to find any photos for some reason, which is surprising because you would think that ther...Jump to post

I definitely want to check out Haarlem. And I’ve read that residents of the area sometimes find tourists annoying, so I’m going to be the best tourist I can.

The same applies to cutting the cleaning crew down to 1 person on the turn, it will not improve turn times and passengers will quickly notice dirty airplanes unless B6 expects their FA's to step in and become de facto cleaners in between flights.
