Re: BOAC 747-136 question

G-AWNA delivered April 70, -AWNB in May. Like others said they spent a year sat on the ground (presumably at West Base?). Pilot dispute was over pay and how many flightcrew up front. Below is an archived copy of Flight's June 1970 edition. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DmKJMTkW0AA_A0f?format=jpg&n...

Re: BA at LGW before the BCal merger?

I believe the Tristars didn't have the legs for LON-MEX direct, requiring a stop in MSY along the way. Under Bermuda II this meant they had to use LGW as MSY would be a new US city not in the original agreement.

Re: IB announces the retirement of A346 fleet

The Wall Street Journal ran an article in 2003 on Boeing's competition with Airbus on the deal that led to the A340-600s at IB. Purchase and operating analysis for long-lived assets in a world where long-term forecasts for fuel prices are notoriously unreliable and ultimate sales of the type to oth...

Re: Mahan Air: IKA-LSP

Any -600 drivers think of a likely reason for a tech stop in ALG?

IKA-LSP well within 7000nm. Just how strong are those westbound winds? Or maybe its the weight of the cargo...

Re: Thomas Cook Bankruptcy Discussion Thread

A real shame for all of the staff and pax. Anyone who looked at the books would have seen what a mess TCG was in. No wonder the banks walked away... This is a group that has been loosing money for years, has virtually no assets and a whole load of liabilities. https://twitter.com/Frances_Coppola/sta...

Re: Iberia A346 burts tyre upon landing today @ EZE

Iberia have a habit of putting A340s down a little too firmly in that part of the world. I've lost count of how many times now.

Re: BA using Privatair BBJ?

Unlikely that BA will be leasing from from Eastern again anytime soon - the CAA are watching Eastern closely.
