Re: Rumour: Emirates to decommission 40% of A380 fleet

I can also imagine that under the current conditions, legacies will successfully lobby their governments to restrict access to the likes of Emirates in order to protect their home markets, and thus further deteriorating the case for the A380.

Re: Airport shopping and eating post Covid

Thanks guys! Any ideas about the shops? For example, how will they adjust/direct the flow through those walk-through duty-free shops?

Hi folks, Here's your dedicated airport historian. I am currently writing an article about airport shopping and eating through the years (and featuring FANTASTIC images!). As part of the article, I also want to look ahead a bit to the near and long-term future. I think there's plenty of people here ...

Concorde: why no LHR-BOS service?

Hi folks, I was wondering why there was never a scheduled Concorde service between London and Boston.

Or was there perhaps an entirely different reason, such as availabilit...

Re: Canadian Airports 2019 statistics

For example, according to StatCan, YUL handled 18,749,586 in 2018. According to the YUL website, it's 1...

A few years ago a gentleman from Quebec was pulled over by the police somewhere in the countryside of Alberta. He was able to have the ticket annulled in court because the Alberta police officer was not able to address him in French!

Re: German federal transport minister wants TXL to be kept open

Hello everyone, As a guy interested in the history of airports, including those that were not built, I would be very interested to reading the original site selection/feasibility study. I'm especially interested in the preliminary layout of the Sperenberg option. I also remember seeing it in a Germa...
