They are racist. They take Moroccan passengers aside and refuse to check them in. This is racism. So you're saying that they refuse to check-in all Moroccan passengers? Or are you extrapolating one case (potentially yours?) to accuse them of racist operating procedures? They are refusing to check-i...Jump to post

Are airlines accommodating passengers' concerns about flying on the MAX and offering free rebooking options? I.e. AA might decide that they want to continue operating the type, but if a passenger goes to board and realizes it's a MAX, how will their refusal to fly on the MAX be accommodated?Jump to post

Regarding BA's move of LHR-BIO to LGW-BIO, any idea why this is the case?
Vueling operate BIO-LGW and BA had the LHR flight. Now they're both competing on BIO-LGW and LHR has lost BIO service... Is there any reasoning to this? Will Vueling resume the LHR flight?
More issues at BFS : Belfast International Airport apologises for long security queues I flew BFS-ALC last Friday and it was a disaster.

KLM is the connecting specialist, are their fares high enough to make worth while to fly a 77W 14 hours to EZE ? Very interesting question. The full rotation takes 37 hours, so I think this is one of their longest rotations. Does anyone know? I assume more people use this route for AMS-EZE than for...Jump to post

The above is right, PF is €575 and IB is €1,500. However, PF's potential customers are price sensitive, which means they won't mind connecting flights. PF shouldn't worry too much about IB's €1,500 price tag, but focus on the fact that LH/AC offer 1-stop those dates for €430. (Outbound MAD-FRA-BOS w...Jump to post
I agree with OP. I am based in Belfast and use BHD and DUB. For domestic travel, I use BHD - flights to/from BHD are generally a bit more expensive; but this summer, clearing security at BFS has taken longer than the average flight times to mainland UK. For international travel, I drive to Dublin. I...Jump to post
IAG are not in the habit of tolerating inefficiency within its operations! I’m sure they have thought this out! IMO, it's not efficient to have two flights operating exactly the same routes within five minutes of each other (there are many examples - e.g. on LHR - DUB, BA0830 and BA5959). I've alwa...Jump to post
I'm surprised BFS isn't on the bottom 5. This summer, security waiting times have been 1+ hour every day, and some people have experienced up to 2 hour waiting times.Jump to post
Back and forth to TLV for 195GBP? I’m with BA on this one! I’d cancel those fares for sure. I can find return flights from London to Tel Aviv in September for £115 with Wizz Air and EasyJet. So even if £195 is a cheaper-than-usual British Airways price, BA should've honored it. It's not like they'v...Jump to post
The key thing to understand here is that this could happen in any airline. Not justifying it, it's wrong, but it comes down to the actual employee that you get.
Had this happened in Ryanair or Norwegian, some people would be saying "you get what you pay for".
I hope everyone claims their EU261 compensations, which I assume is €600 per passenger.
Can Norwegian refuse to put customers up in hotels when there's a delay of 21 hours?
As for the first aid kit, that could just be DailyMail being DailyMail...

But IAG already said that they would develop Level from other Vueling bases, namely Paris and Rome. So, it was never their intent to put all eggs in the same basket.

Well for BFS-LGW they have failed to dent EZY on the route. The FR yields and loads were trash from what I heard.

It has been a Madrid-based rotation, the aircraft has flown MAD-EAS-LTN-EAS-MAD. Flights started July 2nd, run through August 16th. Twice weekly.

Does anyone know how the BFS-SWF route is performing?Jump to post
Here's what I don't understand. They will have to pay around €250 per pax. For each Captain / FO, who do on average 4 flights a day, that's: €250 (min.) x 189 pax x 80% load factor x 4 legs = €150k. I've used a 80% load factor because, even if their average is 95%+, they'd cancel the flights that ar...Jump to post

Ryanair said they're doing this 'To reduce the number of flight delays caused by too many customers arriving at the gate with 2 carry-on bags'. How is gate-checking 50-100 suitcases going to make the process faster? In any case, I'd expect delays to increase!Jump to post
I agree with the Top 5 statement, but I think this will happen through consolidation, not through closing airlines down. Lufthansa Group could take onboard SAS and LOT. AF/KLM could take onboard Air Europa. IAG is BA/IB/EI + TP? Due to geographical reasons, I believe TAP would do better with IAG. No...Jump to post

It's great news that they're launching LON-EZE.
However, let's remember that this doesn't necessarily mean they'll be cheaper than the legacy airlines.
Example outbound 2/21 return 3/01, Alitalia is £578. Norwegian is £584 + £100 if you need a check-in bag, food and a seat.
