Years ago when i was in the trade, we used to by-pass the issue of a Saturday night stay for short frequent business trips by booking back-to-back apex tickets. Lon-Ams-Lon & Ams-Lon-Ams on two separate tickets for example New sophisticated airline revenue protection technology spots these kind...Jump to post
If FlyBe wish to launch more services to Central Europe, they should do that from SOU which has a bigger catchment area, both leisure and business, than SEN.Jump to post
BA's European flights generally don't have this fares rule as much as in years gone past due to the competition from LCC's who have never had this restriction. But since LCC's don't operate to places like ACC BA and others get away with fleecing business passengers with this Saturday night stay rule.Jump to post
News of SEN - GLA being cancelled came through about 3 weeks ago already - it affected my colleagues living in the South Essex catchment area who had booked flights to GLA for our annual conference in November. The issue with SEN is that it only has a relatively small catchment area. And I don't thi...Jump to post
I’m confused with LHs strategy sometimes. EW seems impossible to keep on top of, especially long haul. And then there’s the ‘jump’ operation and the SN A340 opps... makes my head spin. Glad I'm not the only one ! So thank you to our German A-netters for trying to keep on top of this subject and kee...Jump to post
tquote="QANTAS747-438"]Can anyone do a mock up of the new TN livery on these planes to see what they would look like?[/quote]
It's Air Tahiti ( VT ) that's getting these 2 new jets, not Air Tahiti Nui ( TN ).
Seems like the MRJ is out of the running.Jump to post
Choice between A220-100 and E2-195.

How come those in the tower missed seeing this and didn't instruct to cancel the take-off clearance ?Jump to post
Let's look more positively at this rather than dissing this innovation before it starts. Perhaps they've done some research into where they wish to start serving first by speaking to large corporations, chamber of commerce's and networking with international business leaders, plus identified where p...Jump to post

This. A public place like this is not a place for a proposal.
I think they should stick to what's got them where they are today and learn from the past experiences of Monarch and Excel before. That said, a bit of extra peak season capacity to place like BGI and MLE wouldn't go amiss should they wish to stretch the legs of that A330. But no, best not dabble ful...Jump to post
We have long prophesied on here of a merger between EK & EY. Lets see what happens. Would be a real shame for an airline to go totally bust after a couple big moves by the previous CEO. Indeed we have. I don't feel it's a case of EY going bust to merge with EK but the logical outcome of when DW...Jump to post
Quite simply put, the people behind launching Nigeria Air didn't put enough $$$ into the pockets of Government ministers.Jump to post
Believe Australia was always in TK's thinking when they committed to getting 789's. I reckon IST-PER is a given. Can't see TK going with a low-density high-premium cabin though.Jump to post
Sorry if I missed it, but has any further news come up from this conference about when route duplication is allowed ? I mean having more than one airline on any particular route. There was talk recently about the Chinese Govt allowing this. This will clearly affect CZ if they want to expand from Bei...Jump to post
They could try MUC with their new 738Max if a 788 is deemed too big to start with.Jump to post
AMS and MUC seem to be gaps in their European network.Jump to post
It didn't leave LGW late " every time " when flying for DI. The scheduled time was put back till late evening from LGW and something like 3am from JFK because that's when JFK said they could accommodate the big bird there. That's according to posters on a previous thread on this matter. Su...Jump to post
Isn't NRT-GUM like 7 hours? That's definitely outside the range of a 737 and will require a fuel stop (though I don't think there is a suitable one between Tokyo and Guam)... No, far from it, I've flown that route twice on DL and it's around 3 hrs 20 mins flight time. Kudos to Jeju for picking this...Jump to post
There was talk a while back of EK about to order an extra 15 77L's, that hasn't happened but if it had, they could be taking them around now which would have helped with the exact plans they're talking about here.Jump to post
Congrats to HU for making this route work. When I was at TXL in June, the HU A333 parked remote both times I saw it. Can an A333 not fit on a jetty gate at TXL at the terminal ? I'm sure in previous years, it parked at gate 1.Jump to post
So only the 3 ANA aircraft were left at KIX when the storm struck ? Did Peach fly all their fleet out ?Jump to post
Yesterday at LHR, the QF 789 ( ZNF ) arrived just after 8pm, around 15 hours late ! Oh dear, trouble in paradise already ?
Pity the poor passengers have such a huge delay then a 16hour+ flight !
BE should concentrate on getting reliable on-time air services up & running before mucking about with more livery variations.
Several of my colleagues have had their SEN - GLA flight cancelled in November to attend our annual conference and are left with expensive alternatives now.
FYI: An-24 has a long history: An-24 Original design and prototypes. Twin-engined 44-seat transport aircraft.

Seems like a sensible severe weather-related diversion to me, happens everywhere so why is this even news ?
Look, the sheer volume of Chinese flights and major expansion by pretty much all airlines is bound to increase incidents. Frankly, I'm half surprised there hasn't been more there.
Surely the 738 can do eastbound EWR - STN flights without stopping ? Westbound is a different matter I know.Jump to post
The new HND slots could be used as bait to temp back airlines that previously flew to NRT and for new international routes.
I hope VS returns. Could WOW or FI be tempted to try for slots for KEF - HND ?
In theory, Nigeria could do with a decent long-haul carrier, but in practice, this will be a tough call to succeed. ET, TK and the ME3 have the extensive connectivity via their hubs sawn up so why would anyone want to connect via awful Lagos. Arik had the chance to make a good go of being Nigeria's ...Jump to post
