Re: British Airways (BA) introducing new First Class suites with doors.

In the last 5 years BA have made the following positive changes.... Lets have a look... - New First Cabin (Starting with 787-9) - Further new First Cabin (Starting with 77W) Not exactly ‘New’ rather an easy evolution of preexisting First - New First tableware and Dining Service - First Wing at Heat...

Re: Heathrow Airport Limited’s redevelopment plan with the third runway delayed until 2030

For the 10 millionth time, and the key point of the Holland review, it’s not about how quickly you can get from the airport to your own house, but the economic benefits of an efficient and well connected hub and spoke airport. That is not and never has been Gatwick. But yeah, snobbery. The Holland ...

Re: Heathrow Airport Limited’s redevelopment plan with the third runway delayed until 2030

The T2B satellite could be built at some point, but that requires moving the Eastern taxiway and hence knocking down a maintenance hanger, which will have to be relocated. Again, not a great use of money right now. Before Covid, Heathrow were planning on increasing the capacity of T5, and this may ...

Re: Heathrow Airport Limited’s redevelopment plan with the third runway delayed until 2030

As others have said, i think that it will be a while before HAL will spend of major infrastructure projects. Whilst this is their norm and the regulation encourages HAL to spend, it doesn't make sense when airlines are in a fragile position and extra spending is just going to increase charges at LHR...

not permanently though. If they plan to fly this on an ongoing basis, someone will have had to give them a slot

Re: Virgin Atlantic secures rescue package

So it looks to me like the Virgin Group is waiving it's licensing fees for 2 years, remember, 0.7% of gross revenue goes to the Virgin Group from Virgin Atlantic, that's roughly £200m a year (and people wonder why VS was having a hard time making money in the good years). £200m? That would imply VS...

Without slot alleviation, it'll be very hard for Norwegian to hang onto it's good slots across Europe. They may have too many aircraft by 2022

Re: DY Financial Discussion - 2020

The two largest shareholder of Norwegian is now: AerCap 15,9% BOC Aviation: 12,67% These really are strange times. I wonder how other airlines, particularly competitors will do business with these lessors going forward? "I'll take 5 aircraft please, but only if you don't fly in my markets"

Re: IAG Post Covid Fleet Plan Summary

iAG will receive 3 fewer aircraft in 2020 - there were 4 77W's due to be delivered. It's much more likely that IAG has come to an agreement with Airbus and Boeing over the deferral of some A350s and B787s as an overall package rather than an agreement with the lessor, who is likely to be more punit...

Re: IAG Post Covid Fleet Plan Summary

Source? The 77Ws are likely to be delivered as agreed. You can't just pull out of a lease deal like this 6 months before taking them without massive penalties. How come they no longer appear on the fleet plans? Depends on the lease BA signed with the airframe owners. The results presentation says t...

I believe they’re being leased and are no longer coming.

Re: IAG Post Covid Fleet Plan Summary

No reduction by airline but you can usually figure out a few things if you know their business well. For example there supposed to 17 long haul deliveries in 2022 1 A330 8 A350s and 7 779s so essentially 9 Airbus 8 Boeing. But now there are only 9 long haul deliveries. It’s pretty obvious it’s the ...

Re: IAG Post Covid Fleet Plan Summary

Did IAG announce whether any staff are to be made redundant in other airlines in the group other than British Airways? Yes on the call. WW said that because of the labour law requirements in the UK, they have had to announce these first, but likely more will come from the rest of the Group airlines...

Re: Virgin Atlantic needs government support?

Finally, you see it as a badly run airline, I see an airline that is facing up to the reality of the current situation and doing what's needed to try and secure the appropriate money. They're not alone in having to make cuts and other difficult decisions. That's because it is bad run airline. Never...

Re: DY Financial Discussion - 2020

I have to say, the lessors must be feeling the pain right now. They've had to take a big haircut on their lease rentals and if approved, will own the company! Very strange times. I would be looking at cancelling all near / medium term orders if I were DY now. I can imagine there are very very few pe...
