Gol has a lounge network and the inflight experience is nothing like Ryanair. I think the comparison of Gol to Ryanair is wrong. If I had to, I'd compare Gol to Westjet or AerLingus. And I’d leave this final thought. Admittedly they don’t have the route network of LATAM long haul, but their regional...Jump to post
The win for Oneworld is to recruit GOL in Brazil. Losing LATAM but gaining GOL is an opportunity for AA to offer service to secondary cities in the region, boosting (or maintaining) one-stop connections e.g DFW- SaoPaolo- Uberlandia (isnt that the coolest city name?!?) Surely many would agree that G...Jump to post
I thought Interjet only have 3 aircraft types & seating. Their A320s carry 150 passengers. Their Soduko jets 99 passengers and they have A321 jets that carry more than the A320 (but I dont know jiw many passengers in total). Does this mean they have 2 configurations gor either the 320 or 321? Ju...Jump to post
Volaris and Frontier have joined forces. If I buy a ticket on the Volaris website, I get results showing Frontier flights, or even connections. I imagine its vice versa on Frontiers website too. How do airlines report revenue generated via their partnerships? I wonder if this has impacted Frontiers ...Jump to post
After US-MEX deregulation, the battle between airlines has been intense. AM and the US3 used to dominate US-MEX flights. Y4, 4O and VB national routes This has been turned in its heads and its brutal. Fares are very cheap (at times) and I wonder how airlines are making money. Turns out, they aren’t....Jump to post
I always assumed it was due to competition (except LHR- JFK) I imagine if there’s little competition, then passengers would fly your plane regardless of age and the state of the cabin, but onc a competitor puts a new plane on the same route then the airline can respond by putting a better product on...Jump to post
How about flying GDL to Chihuahua, and then take the flight Chihuahua to Albuquerque? Couldn’t that work? I just looked on the Volaris website and there’s a flight leaving Gdl at 7.21am arriving at 8.13am The Albuquerque flight leaves at 10.40am so you’d have time to make the switch. This must be ea...Jump to post
Acapulco has a completely new airport terminal, cruise lines have returned to the ports and infrastructure projects, building bridges and the likes are underway. I’ve been dozens of times in the last few years and it’s a fine place. Stay in the hotel resorts in the evening, walk around town in the m...Jump to post
Could the recent Aeromexico connect crash have impacted this Q3 result? I mean, first of all, one frame less to cover, also the cost of a crash must be huge and finally, I wonder if less passengers have flown the airline after the crash. Really don’t know the answers, but the two things could be rel...Jump to post
Thank goodness that there were no fatalities.
I was flying on an Aeromexico flight whennnews came through. The suggestion is that there was a strong crosswind gust(s) that impacted the takeoff.
Not sure how true this could be, but it’s worth a mention here.
Why would a person apply to, and then join a company that has different values to yourself? Regardless if the ‘skirt only’ rule is right or wrong, the rule was there when employees started in the company. They knew the rule, and they signed the employment contract. Would you work for a company that ...Jump to post
Avianca and Aeromar in Mexico seem to be planning something interesting in 2018. I wonder if Avianca would transfer the Aeromar ATRs to Avianca Argentina, in turn bringing some A320 family planes to start bigger operations as the Avianca Mexico brand develops. I hope so! Some interesting competition...Jump to post
Interjet has announced that they will cease operating on 5 rountes from Mexico City; Aguascalientes, Campeche, La Paz, Minatitlan and Reynosa, stating slot restrictions as the reason. However, no other airline is mentioning slot restrictions-so why would this only apply to Interjet and not others, s...Jump to post
