Austrian "Bundeswettbewerbsbehörde" will have a close look at the LH-AB deal (german though):
https://kurier.at/wirtschaft/lufthansa- ... 91.643.175
Not sure where so many take their fear of a lack of competition from. LH Group has a market share of 14% in Europe, hardly dominant and so there can't be an argument for lack of competition within Europe. As to domestic traffic: Germany is a tiny Country. Not too many worthwhile domestic routes apa...Jump to post

I have noticed that Boeing aircraft almost always wear their final reg. already when making test- and CAF-flights.

Airbus always uses an F- reg. for this and applies the final reg. ...Jump to post
Verona-Faro is the real outlier and surprise in that list. I checked the FAO wikipedia page and there is not a single flight between Faro and Italy. So truly out of the box.

What's actually the competitive situation in Vienna? Are there any other big players besides Austrian and Niki? 66% LH group, 6% AB group.

5. LH will grab Niki and grow Eurowings Europe with it - offering toursit centric routes from Austria and Vienna This would give the LH group a too dominant position in VIE. Austrian governement should and will not give its approval since competition on many routes would be reduced to almost nil.Jump to post

Why not have the blast fences hydraulically operated to be raised for take off but down for landing?
IMHO nothing big is going to happen in foreseeable time. At the end of the day there may be some "slimline deflectors", that are not higher than the fence due to the approach path: 1.)
