BUF's longest runway is 8800 ft long, I don't think it's long enough for such flight. 8829 feet to be precise, which equals 2691 meters. Very short indeed, too short for reaching Asia. If a flight from Asia were to fly to the Buffalo region, for example as a charter, I could see them use the nearby...Jump to post
Royal Jordanian as in their cargo operation or their passenger flights? Also, I don't think Maastricht is an adequate replacement for Amsterdam. I took the train some years ago and the non-stop line needed close to 2 hours to make the journey. Most trains stop all over the country. Yes, it's their ...Jump to post
Apart from helicopters, zeppelins and hot air balloons also aren't fixed wing aircraft. They can take off and land vertically, not needing a runway.
Obviously hot air balloons can't be used for commercial flights but helicopters and zeppelins can.
The Kooy is largely an oil and gas heliport, not disimilar to NWI, HUY and ABZ, but than without the fixed-wing operations. It is capable of fixed wing operations, but only on small aircraft. Keep in mind De Kooy only has a very short runway (1275 meters). That's not enough for a 737 or A320, likel...Jump to post
We are talking about AMS here. What percentage of their flights are made up of those €50 party shuttles? As for frequencies on other routes, well, if all those flights to London are full then it means that all those flights are justified. At Amsterdam, not that much. The big ULCCs such as Ryanair a...Jump to post
By the time you deal with all the BS and additional fees you’ve saved what, $30-$60? Not worth it. That depends, for some people it can be worth it. Specially if you have a low income, $30 can be a whole lot of money. If you're frugal (which most low-income people are) it means food for a week. You...Jump to post
I wouldn't call them the worst queues in Europe. There are queues indeed, but compared to other airports it's quite reasonable in Stockholm. Depending on the time of the day, the queue can be anywhere between 10 minutes and an hour. Temporary security staff has been hired for the summer season. On t...Jump to post
Btw, it doesn't have to be just the airlines you've flown if you want to add more. In that case, here are some airlines which I've never flown and which aircraft type I associate them with.

Do passengers flying into AMS from the UK on Easyjet have the ability to access the non-Schengen departure area without having to exit to landside and reclear security ? I think they have. No, they don't. EasyJet uses the H-concourse at Schiphol, which is entirely separate from the rest of the airp...Jump to post

This is tough since domestic wide body flights are really rare. Wide bodies are mostly used on longer distances. Keep in mind that, while OMA-ORD-LAX is bookable on AA, they also have a direct OMA-LAX flight (operated by American Eagle). Big chance they'll rebook you on that flight. And if you're on...Jump to post
Okay, restricting to airlines which I've flown.
Air Holland: 757-200
KLM Cityhopper: F-100
Unpopular as it might sound, Ryanair is a success story. They once started with nearly nothing and look where they are now. In order to be successful, you don't have to be the best. You just got to offer a product for which there is demand against prices people are willing to pay for it. That's what...Jump to post
Are the GA flights departing CGK still diverting along the way to Europe due to the runway weight restrictions? Yes, I believe they're stopping in Singapore. Not entirely sure about that. Anyway, both KLM and Garuda have direct flights between Amsterdam and Jakarta but they're not daily. You might ...Jump to post
Maybe Oakland or San José, serving as alternatives for San Francisco. The major airlines wouldn't go for it, but I can see a newcomer trying it there. ZipAir Tokyo perhaps? As an LCC they can get away with serving a secondary airport in order to save costs, and with San Francisco nearby the market c...Jump to post
Wasn't there that farmer that had his house in the middle of Narita. He refused to sell his house, so they built the airport around it. Indeed if I look at it at Google Earth there appears to be a house there entirely surrounded by taxiways. But there is a road tunnel which surfaces for a bit near ...Jump to post
There is actually a house located at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, although about 750 meters from the runway. But it's fully within the airport perimeter. It's hidden somewhat behind P4 long term parking and can only be accessed through the parking lot. An elderly couple is living there, the house has...Jump to post
Last Wednesday evening I was at CPH and I saw an aircraft there of which I didn't know which airline it was. Unfortunately I only saw it's tail, another aircraft was parked in front of it blocking the view. The tail had blue and white vertical stripes on it, and lower on the tail some of the white s...Jump to post
Maybe I should have rephrased my question better. How much of SAS traffic to/from northern Sweden (Kiruna, Luleå, Skellefteå, Umeå, Östersund) is travelling beyond Stockholm ? Just 5% of pax ? 30 % ? I'm interested to know how much traffic there is which cannot use the train or an alternate airport...Jump to post
Seems like Luton is operational again, a Ryanair flight from Dublin is landing there right now.
The Wizzair flight from Iasi just landed in Gatwick.
W6 8767 seems to be the next, en route from Iasi to Luton, circled north of Ipswitch and is now flying south of Gatwick. Not sure where it's going.
It all started with Air One, an Italian low-cost airline which at the time was the second-largest airline in Italy. In 2000 Lufthansa announced a partnership with Air One and all Air One flights got Lufthansa codeshares. However Air One wasn't doing too well financially and in 2008 they almost went ...Jump to post
First of all the ULCCs would move in, as they do wherever a legacy airline collapses. They're quick to pick up the assets such as slots. But most ULCCs only fly within Europe so they're no good for long haul. Initially, Scandinavia would barely have any long haul flights. At least not directly, lots...Jump to post
Wouldn't adding the airline titles be, by definition, adding color to the fuselage. Yes, but that's not bad because there's nothing surrounding those titles. Nothing but whiteness. There can be color on the fuselage, but no horizontal lines. Take this one for example: 6649691 That's Malaysia Airlin...Jump to post
Very bold statement! I agree that nowadays you can do more interesting things with aircraft, but straight lines look more dignified IMO. That being said, it's not like all cheatline liveries are a work of art. Quite a few of them (old Garuda Indonesia, old blue Icelandair) blended in with the crowd...Jump to post
Favourite Eurowhite livery...? For Christs sake, get a grip of yourselves...... and get a CHEATLINE.....!!!!! END OF THREAD. Please no, cheatlines are ugly!

Indeed, such services were popular back in the days. The ATL-98 Carvair was essentially a converted DC-4 which could contain a couple of cars while the passengers sat in the upper cabin, kind of like a 747 but much smaller.Jump to post
Ok, and what about those with large titles? You mean billboard liveries? Yes, that's Eurowhite. At least, it is as long as the plane is white and there are no cheatlines. Some airlines like to cheat Eurowhite by having a cheatline very low on the belly. British Airways for example, their planes are...Jump to post
I believe in the EU the number is zero. I used to see them often as a child but I haven't seen any cropdusting aircraft for many years.

I guess this has to do with CLT being a OneWorld hub while CDG is a SkyTeam hub. For OneWorld Paris has little meaning, their European hubs are LHR and MAD. The RDU flight from Paris makes sense because it's on DL, a SkyTeam airline. They codeshare with AF, funneling demand from all of Europe throug...Jump to post
DUS is going through the media here in Germany. We arrived by metro at 5:30 in the morning and just made it to an intra-Schengen flight at 7:10.

Out of the box thinking is a good thing, but it should make sense. I'm afraid this one doesn't make any sense. Of course frequent flying programs are a way to make customers pick your airline, if they fly more often. However for the people who fly less often they don't do much, those people would ne...Jump to post
And KLM flew them until 1985, 2 years after SAS.
British Airways received it's first 757 in 1983 and retired it's last 707 in 1984, there was one year in which they had both the 707 and the 757 in the fleet. Both were used on TATL routes.
Maybe China would have taken a bunch of them but that can't be said for certain. Aviation in China didn't mean that much in those days and where would they fly it anyway? They certainly wouldn't sell it to any western airline. Not that western airlines were interested, they thought of Russian aircra...Jump to post
If you don't check in by the cut off time, they cancel your reserved seat and possibly assign it to someone else. But should they have that right? After all you paid for that seat, regardless if you use it or not. If you don't use it, you paid for that seat to be empty. Not for it to be reassigned....Jump to post
Part of it is the security aspect too - you need to know who exactly is onboard. It would be if you had a guarantee that everybody who has checked in would actually fly, but that guarantee can't be given. You don't want to know how often someone doesn't show up for a flight which they have checked ...Jump to post
Even with only carry on luggage, you must checkin to get a boarding pass, which is required to go thru security.
