Personally, I've always hoped AC got a large order of 788s in an LCC config (like Norwegian's 788s). 40 of them would cover all of Rouge's 763 and Transat's 332s.
The source is Lufthansa. Check their schedules/timetable. Its swings and roundabouts, airports go through periods of years of growths then down, management changes and up again. Not all airports can offer subsidised incentives. For a declining population and two neighbouring airports within 50 miles...Jump to post
No, its not a charter. If you look at the schedule - BA tend to operate a lot of leisure routes on Saturday/Sunday and a Wednesday. When there is less demand for the business heavy destinations. They may not be charters per-se, but the rational driving leisure focused low frequency flights has ofte...Jump to post
Well the boom in legacy LH Germany to GLA didn't last long...
LH FRA - down to less than daily W19
LH FRA - S19 no A321's scheduled
LH MUC - scrapped for W19
and of course Eurowings DUS gone from S19
Could we be seeing a repeat of history or just a winter blip?
is that an emergency exit between the 2 overwing exits and the aft door because it look different to the normal A321LR emergency exits that TS has. The flex layout on EI and TS A321LRs are identical, two overwing, one mid rear. The TS have the second overwing deactivated but is still there. Its not...Jump to post

successful launch of Cape Town, Los Angeles, San Francisco, JFK & Seattle, which are entirely seat-only passengers. Are they all seat only ? (often heavily advertised in TC shops and brochures and can be made as packages) How do we know the 'success' or otherwise of these routes (who's frequenc...Jump to post

perhaps if performance is too close it will come down to the financial deal offered. With Boeing's struggles, wonder if they'll be willing to give a very good deal (its a niche order) so unlikely to lead to everyone wanting similar dealsJump to post

.... with only ABZ carrying anything like enough bums on seats in terms of forward bookings. Very early days, but expect this program to be very different next season than it is currently... Most punters from Glasgow won't even know where Southend is nevermind labelling it as a LON gateway.Jump to post
I think I'll give this one a miss.Jump to post
where are these A321LRs coming from? who has slots or lease builds available for years?
Sounds like a pipe dream in the short term and a Boeing frightener
I dont have great feelings about this Mitsubishi RJ venture.
Surely lots of the technology is already 'out of date'.
The boom of RJ just doesn't seem to be there now with more efficient economical larger aircraft. I doubt Mits can alter the history of SCOPE

Could IAG find a place for the A330-800 to replace B767 capacity with BA, or would it be too big a plane? That role has already been fulfilled at BA. The original batch of 788's effectively replaced them on long-haul duties and A321neo's have just replaced the remaining 767's that were configured f...Jump to post
Thomas Cook publicly stated that they’d prefer the group airlines to be sold together. With this in mind, Indigo Partners (the only ones so far who’ve openly bid for the whole lot) seems the most likely option, surely. Yet would they be interested in the Long Haul component? That huge Airbus narrow...Jump to post

Are yields & demand poor in these markets? Would a B787-8 be better For this? I cant imagine majority inbound group tourists are high yielding. Business class was always wide open with extremely competitive fares, that would be where any money might be made I would presume. Its been tried with ...Jump to post
Maybe like in buildings (although this might be costly and have some injury risk) they should have more false alarm full evacuation tests so that people get to experience the scenario. I suppose like building fire alarms people might just always think its a test.Jump to post
In terms of competition eg on Florida routes, if any other operator had wished to serve this market they could, I cant see why there would be a cap and therefore no competition restriction. Funny to think at one point to Florida there was Britannia, Air Europe (747 !) , Monarch, European/Travel City...Jump to post
Weird. Not great for a reliable schedule though was never attractive to those who need a reliable fixed frequent schedule. I think i read somewhere its treated mainly as an inbound charter flight. Looks like 789 continues, lets hope the cloud over the route disappears. Fares look dirt cheap for any ...Jump to post

Will my booking be safe and still operated, albeit by whoever buys TC? I don't think this would be guaranteed so far out. What can be guaranteed is there will either be no change and booking goes ahead as-is, you get an alternative or a full refund. I am guessing a lot will be hesitant to book now,...Jump to post
Another UK destination was previously suggested though dont think CWL is currently reaching expectations. BFS? GLA?Jump to post
