I realize the HiFly A380 subs for Norwegian are to JFK, but is there a possibility of an MCO (Orlando) visit to replace the HiFly A340's currently used on that route for Norwegian?? It would surely make more sense to use it in peak summer school holiday season to MCO than JFK. It does seem the airc...Jump to post

EWR (VS001) is it's inaugural IIRC.
Given Heathrow's capacity issues, I wonder if the A380 makes more sense for BA than many other airlines. It does, but only on certain routes and those routes are already covered by the aircraft. In reality - 12 A380s was perhaps 2 airframes too many for BA. There are not many other routes besides w...Jump to post
Could IAG use this MAX purchase to form a leasing division ? If so, I reckon most these 200 will end up in China.Jump to post
Boeing’s probably giving them away for nothing in a fire sale .... they must be way below cost for a quality brand like IAG to take them off their hands . Even if they had to give them away for free, it's still a big confidence boost for the MAX. Incredible job by Boeing. And probably a fantastic d...Jump to post
Fab news about the VS A339 order confirmation. Looking forward to what new routes they will use them on.Jump to post
Is this not the 1st for EK rather than LH ?Jump to post

MH also had a LAX fight that went via NRT.Jump to post
The 787-10 would be a great workhorse for intra asian routes where they send the 77A and 77W. That being said seeing the a350 in KE colours would be great, and with the 777X out of the picture the a35K could be a formidable contender. I say 787-10 too. Their 4 773's have had a hard life and these p...Jump to post
Runway performance out of LCY will have a big influence in this decision.Jump to post
It seems that Tianjin Airlines are cutting Tianjin-Chongqing-London Heathrow and Beijing Capital Airlines cutting Qingdao-London Heathrow as all other China flights are on sale for Winter 2019. Can anyone verify these observations? Galileo GDS is still showing the Tianjin Airlines flights but not t...Jump to post
There are warning signs around the LHR perimeter fence that drone usage WILL be met with a prosecution. So a great way to get a criminal record for anyone idiot enough to even think about doing this. LHR is well patrolled by police and I doubt they'll even get one out of a box around the perimeter f...Jump to post

Why is Omani airspace closed?

Good move by TAP, this should be an important new route for the UK to BJL. Since TCX / MT's future is in certain amount of doubt and Gambia Experience have high seat-only fares on their twice-weekly charter I think TAP will do well despite the anti-social night flight timings of this new service.

Looks like N830NW is doing both the DL 164 and the DL 78 !
How come DL don't operate any daylight east coast - AMS flights ?
SeanM1997, VS should return to Tokyo but only if they can get HND slots as HND is higher yielding than PEK/ICN. Agree totally, but it'll be the LHR slots that will be a hurdle to overcome as well. If VS can add HND and time the flight to connect onto their new GRU flight next year that would be a b...Jump to post
Not just the aircraft but like a lot of firms some high staff costs as well to inherit . Although if indigo gets it I’m sure there will be suddenly a lot of new a321neo aircraft on their way I trust you realize Indigo in this case is Indigo a private equity investment company not Indigo Airlines in...Jump to post
But Citi did not invent the sudden #1bn impairment. IMO, it is the Thomas Cook BOD who have some explaining to do. Yeah, exactly, only problem is the board now aren't the board of the MyTravel buyout of 12 years ago so someone down the intervening years has been keeping bad financial figures from t...Jump to post
I'm baffled by why such a huge chunk of the report loss should stem from the 2007 MyTravel merger.
Why does this go into the financial melting pot some 12 years later and not at the time ?
Just announced on the BBC breakfast news - Thomas Cook have announced a £1.45B loss. Yikes ! Doesn't seem the £400M they are trying to raise will go very far... Of course, this result is for the Europe-wide group but it doesn't bode well for the future of Thomas Cook Airlines and Condor in their pre...Jump to post
You can bet the Sri Lankan authorities won't make that mistake again over their intelligence failures. Sad that so many innocents had to die to wake them up though. I hope UL pull through the lean times they will inevitably have now, and that you have a fab holiday to Cape Weligana, it's one of the ...Jump to post
Yeah this is really going to hurt Sri Lanka but the government has no one to blame but themselves. My wife and I even looked at going to SL for an upcoming anniversary but now? Not a chance. Which is too bad - seems like there really are some unique and luxurious experiences to be had there. Not su...Jump to post
