https://www.forbes.com/sites/lorenthompson/2019/07/11/five-basic-facts-about-boeing-missing-from-coverage-of-the-737-max-story/ A reminder, if you needed it, about how vital Boeing is to the US economy. The pressure on Boeing and the FAA to rush the 737MAX back into the air must be immense. True ju...Jump to post

1) I thought UA's UM policy was for direct flights only? The article states United charges $150 each way for unaccompanied minors and their policy is to offer the service only on non-stop flights, and not to offer it connecting to or from partner airlines. Apparently, then, what the boy’s mother re...Jump to post
Nothing new in the article still funny (although I pay taxes in Germany) And some have even tuned this black humour into a business opportunity. Philipp Messinger and Bastian Ignaszewski have invented a board game based on the Berlin airport disaster. The main object of the game is to waste as much ...Jump to post
The link provided in the opening post doesn't really work for me. However I do not find the VP saying they want to become the largest airline. What does largest mean (Market cap, employees, revenue, total passengers, passenger km/mi, fleet, or biggest deficit). It is clear that over the coming years...Jump to post
Not unexpected and frankly some of this was so freaking obvious (I think opinions here on a.net on SN as eurowings was generally persived as a pretty stupid idea) and that makes me wonder why so late (stock price droppping like a stone). Condor brand might be an option for the long haul (if they are...Jump to post
This move is investors realizing a few very difficult quarters ahead. Airlines are very cyclical LH will get over this. But if eurowings will continque as they currently do doubt it. I guess costs are simple to high to compete with FR and the brand eurowings is not very good in Germany. That AF sto...Jump to post

from what i have been told, the NEOs at Lufthansa are limited by a court order on behalf of the cabin crew union UFO. Something about "unbearable working conditions" in the small aft galley on flights exceeding 2.5 hrs or so.... Wauw. Adding a few seats backfired significanty if this is t...Jump to post
I think Fiji Airways Nandi to Adelaide flight has been affected. Not sure on Nandi Melbourne, they are mostly 737s not sure if they are operating their 330s to Melbourne like they to do Sydney. Fiji airways has six 737 so grounding two will impact there operations. Tried to find out what they are d...Jump to post
So most of the 737 max fleet is grounded. Does anyone have any realistic estimate till when measures can be imlimented so the max fleets can fly agian?
I seeing my south pacific flights, once in a live-time trip falling appart as fiji also stoped fly the max.
so Fiji, Fly Dubai, and US airlines are still flying flying? Hope we can find a sollution in the next weeks as I have a trip of a lifetime in the south pacific and plan to fly fiji their 737 max.Jump to post
Not seen every day. Does AF/KL pay dividend so the dutch state with their 0.1% interest on lending actually makes money on this move?Jump to post
A petty in my opinion lucky I have A380 flight comung up next month and in june.
Hat the 747 outlives the 380 who would have expected that.
Time to buy airbus stock?
thank for the info I have a flight to brussel on the 13th. I'll have to rebook.Jump to post
I think this weekend Eurowings, Condor, lufthansa, and maybe Ryanair will get some applications. Not paying employees in a country with 1.2 mil open positions is the start of the end. What is going wrong after air berlin prices increased but now they have come down a bit what is the cause and I do n...Jump to post
Can't austian keep some profitable decentralized by opperating in a W pattern? Above it is .mentioned that Austrian like to get 10 Airbus for 200 million. That sounds unrealistic.Jump to post
They will remove the EU flag? Sorry moving on here
Btw I know that don't have the EU flag on the livery in contrast to some other airlines.
I am also member of this "non-flying" group, but because being afraid of flying:) Now I am really interested in why are interested in aviation are you willing to explain?

How do I know if my company has a corporate contract? I work for a big company and fly all airlines across the board even different airlines on the same route. Is a contract route specific or can there be general contacts (e.g. 15% off everything).Jump to post
Flight will go to air france or transavia?Jump to post
Enough delayed to get compensation? No, de-icing or better weather is an act of god, outside of the control of the airline. So, no compensation. However, if LH is living up to its 5star status, they have offered vouchers for food & drinks. Ah correct a free beer, cool (might have been to early ...Jump to post

EIN did grow the part years, it will grow more imho, just don't expect the need for one more hub.
