Re: Eastern Airways plans LHR-Teesside

The true test of time will be when the local subsidy runs out...
Really needs better timing and significant interlining to make this anywhere near a success.
Lets see how things lie in a year.

Re: BA service to Australia over the years

if everyone ends up doing nonstops then they might as well do their own routings to Oz. Just whether 3-4 aircraft required to run it has any yield as its apparently only barely profitable as is. Someone mentioned ‘tired’ 773s are some almost brand new?

those runway images now are pretty conclusive... maybe when they realised (assuming not a gear mechanical failure) they were too embarrassed to just complete a belly landing to stop and would explain perhaps why the gear (on the hi res video) suddenly have appeared...
