Interesting to see how many routes Loganair are hoovering up, and particularly interesting to see that (so) many of their routes (now) don't touch Scotland; Carlisle-Belfast City Carlisle-Dublin Carlisle-London Southend City of Derry-London Southend City of Derry-Manchester (seasonal) Jersey-Humbers...Jump to post
It's very difficult to discern anything that the new management proactively did to try and prevent this from happening other than holding their tin out to the UK government and shaking it expectantly. Given that, in their management machinating post-takeover, they had offshored the entire operation ...Jump to post
Is there any benefit financially to letting FlyBe die and starting the Virgin project with a new brand in its place (and on its metal)? I feel as though, once again, the investors could have avoided this if they'd wanted to, and this is potentially part of the project(?)
Or is that pie in the sky?

Is this a common thing for regional governments to do in Spain?

Its since got an (I think) ...Jump to post

Ironically BER had only just invited airlines to participate in talks around operations with a view to the October 2020 opening date going ahead.

There is nothing 'stealthy' about it.

It's simple. Like BA, QR and EY, they don't know what they're doing. Running a subfleet of B777X doesn't make sense when you already have the A350-1000 in the fleet and vice versa. Poor fleet planning to go with poor network planning. Too much beer flowing at CX HQ, courtesy of their failed beer de...Jump to post

STN Express is scheduled between 45-50 mins from Liverpool Street, not 1hr 4 mins (presumably Google Maps was factoring in the time until the next departure, i.e. you just missed one as they go every 15 mins).

Quick Q RE: the PSO routes. Since these are, I believe, overseen by the European Commission, do they stop being obligatory upon Brexit, or does their oversight just revert to Westminster? Does anyone know what BE's load factors are network-wide and, particularly, on the domestic ultra-SH routes? I'v...Jump to post
Issues here are, as ever, going to be capacity and cash. LHR probably could not accommodate all of those routes, nor do all those airlines have cash sufficient to obtain the slots (I'd go as far as saying only TAAG and possibly Namibia have deep enough pockets, and the latter only barely). As for th...Jump to post

Utterly pointless comparison. ex-London, BA carries more than DY. This is literally the only market that is relevant. DY have combined passenger numbers from ALL the European markets they fly from to ALL the NYC's ports of entry they use (including SWF). This is a marketing and PR team contorting it...Jump to post

FlyBe's scattergun approach to running an airline (Exhibit A - here, have another new livery. Exhibit B - I don't know, how about a route from Essex to Vienna?) can't sustain. At this point investors would have more luck burning their cash.
Writing is on the wall.
Same thing at hubs across Europe.
AMS, CDG and particularly LHR are full of long haul aircraft sitting idle as Christmas Day is a reduced schedule for long haul routes. 744s littered across the ramps at LHR every December 25th. It really is an impressive sight.
As with everything MO'L says or does, this is about him and publicity for FR. There's no chance FR would take AZ's metal, or assume responsibility for its operations other than to seize slots/routes when/if they become available.Jump to post
Welcome to Australia......

It's not as crazy as it sounds. Luanda is currently the most expensive city in the world (albeit with pronounced inequality). BA/LH/SN/EK and of course TP do a roaring, premium-heavy trade in and out. While it might never happen it makes sense to have the option.Jump to post
Should be interesting to watch against the bloodbath with British Airways! Unless BE start pricing far more aggressively they're not going to last 12 months against BA at LHR. Capacity, the fact BA slots for the same route are up to an hour shorter and price is too much for them to fight against...Jump to post
