another 738 another runway incident and break up...
Lets hope not too many casualties
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?Jump to post
We’ll see real life A380’s in VS colours before that ever materialisesJump to post
Heres what I would do in an Alex Cruz style - Ditch LGW (short and longhaul) Ditch a lot of the leisure routes Watch the smaller new start US Routes eg San Jose, Charleston, Portland etc Reduce UK domestic frequency significantly and cut shorter domestics. Cull older 777’s /A319s Ditch the A380’s Of...Jump to post
these subsidiaries are getting ridiculous to avoid union and legalities, if its that easy to do why bother. Scrap them all and let FR do it’s thing. I’m surprised FR didn’t let them just ‘go under’ citing covid, then resurface later.Jump to post
The 738 Max listed looks fun! Wonder why some still listed as 763 when they're reported as all grounded. More changes pending I suspect. Presume TS merger will play its part.Jump to post

I know someone who works for UA at MAN...they are not returning.
SNN is a lot of aircraft with a 788... Am I not right in saying that as part of the BA transatlantic joint venture, AA are forced to put business flat beds on all transatlantic routes & that KEF got a get out clause Perhaps. Again filling all those flatbeds at profitable fares is a big ask... I...Jump to post
An actual video of the runway marks

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...Jump to post

Nope, lock'em. The original recline function was not designed for 29/30" packed economy cabins. Unless you can guarantee everyoe can do it (you cant, what about the last row), its not comfortable or fair. If you want to recline, pay for the next class up.Jump to post
anything from GLA. Slow steady MCO expansion and some Caribbean was previously rumoured.Jump to post
if they ordered Airbus surely it would be many years before they even got their first. Or are they leasing agencies with many to start deploying soon?Jump to post
