I bet airlines monitor very very closely what people search for on their online portals. Not saying they don't do this during normal times ... but I can't imagen any airline want to be caught out short on capacity when the traffic picks up.Jump to post
In my experience the biggest problem of international train travel in Europe is that buying tickets is still far too complicated.Jump to post
Surely setting a minimum price which is equal to the minimum tax can't be anti competitive.Jump to post
I see some Airbus orders on the horizon.Jump to post
It looks like Lufthansa is worried about the potential condition to give up slots in Frankfurt and Munich. Was Munich at it's capacity limit so that other airlines weren't able to get slots? Or is it a percentage slot reduction rather than an absolute number? Surly the issue will be fill slots rathe...Jump to post
UK introduces 14 day quarantine for arriving passengers from 8th of June. I have to restrain myself from making any political statements.
Regardless if this story is true or not, the A380 game has changed when Airbus announced the end of the programme.Jump to post

If they do buy OS from LH, I hope that a EU ruling could force IAG to sell AI to LH, thereby creating a competitor to BA in the UK, and a competitor to LH in Germany. The new LH-AI could become a competitor to BA through expansion into the UK, whereas the new BA-OS could become a competitor to LH t...Jump to post
Fleet refurbishments are still going ahead but the mix of premium and non premium seats will very likely change both for new deliveries and refurbishment. Was something said if this is expected to be an increase or reduction of premium seats? I assume decrease, due to less business travel in near f...Jump to post
Surprised by the number of KLM flights. Are they allowing PAX transferring through AMS? Or are they running Cargo transfer flights?Jump to post
I find closing LGW from BA a very clever short and long-term strategy. At the moment, and in near future, BA has enough capacity at LHR to serve all destinations with the cost benefit of one base only. LGW will be busy to fill the slots BA leaves behind … low cost carriers, in particular EasyJet, wi...Jump to post
My observations from working in terminal construction and systems: Government owned airports leaning towards to continue projects, whereas privately owned airport stop projects. Where projects benefit from reduce traffic e.g. longer night working windows projects have been asked to accelerate. It is...Jump to post
The German government is currently in the process to buy fighter jets from Boeing and Airbus. Believe it or not, part of the agreement between the two governing parties is that the German Army is immediately taking two A321 original procured by Lufthansa. But Lufthansa can't take them due to the Cov...Jump to post

Another A380 just landed.
Apologise for German language article. Looks like Condor is going to be government owned for a period of time.
There are companies no government in world would let go bankrupt. Boeing and Airbus are for sure among them as they are too important for the nations defence.Jump to post
This must mean that many airlines have agreed to deferred delivery dates already.Jump to post

If it were possible, now would be a great time to do major works at LHR. Demolish T1, and create new holding points on 09L. Straighten a few taxiways, create new stands and satellites. This stoppage could drag on for 6-12 months and demand could be very low on resumption of some normality. Yeap, we...Jump to post
With this tail it doesn't look anything like it.Jump to post
I think there are more important questions for Airbus and Boeing at the moment. Like, how many airlines will go bust and what happens with their aircraft orders, how do travel restrictions effect manufacturing (especially the distributed manufacturing process of Airbus), etc …Jump to post
Not to downplay the severity of what’s happening but with aggressive measures by summer things could be gradually returning to normal. It is 2-3 months of severe revenue contraction but most airlines should be able to get through. I am sure there will be emergency lines of credit extended if needed...Jump to post
No airline needs currently any new or used aircrafts. Once the demand is increasing again the oil price will go up too.Jump to post
I have visibility of the number of departing checked-in bags at one of the major European hub airports The daily departing number of bags this weeks is about 30% below the forecast … and these forecasts a very precise.Jump to post
Indeed. As I predicted March last year the MAX would NOT be flying by the end of 2019. And here we are. ANOTHER software "issue". Not to mention the trove of emails leaked recently that imply a major criminal cover up. Mark my words: the MAX ain't gonna fly for a LONG time, if EVER. Would...Jump to post
