There would certainly be a market for those routes. But the Wanaka airport needs the upgrade to make it happen runway & tarmac strengthening etc. An expansion to the terminal will likely be needed. But unfortunately the locals don't want it to go ahead so there is the main stumbling block for i...Jump to post

We can't go a single day without this being in the news now. Our entire society has became emotionally incontinent.
But if I pay for a service and then decide not to use that service then it should be up to me, not the airline. I hope that the courts in Europe decide in favour of the consumer in this matter, as the airlines have it all their way at the moment. Airline conditions of carriage need a good sort out a...Jump to post
If you have flown economy class with TAP recently then a fall in the number of passengers would not surprise you. After my bad experiences (both on the ground and also in-flight) with TAP I avoid this airline like the plague. If their basic product is sub-standard then more and more passengers will ...Jump to post
As a lot of people have found out the hard way, many jobs can be done by a computer/robot now, so perhaps the pilots should think twice before demanding large salary increases for a job that is POSSIBLE to be carried out by a computer. Flight decks on many large a/c went down from 3 crew to 2 crew, ...Jump to post
Out of interest, I just looked to see what Norwegian Airline is charging today for the 418 km trip from Oslo to Stockholm, a popular route. Now that SAS is on strike, the price is crazy..... 8231 NOK for a seat today. That is 861 euros, and baggage will cost you extra. Absolutely CRAZY price for a 4...Jump to post
And in the news, the opposition (Norwegian Air) has increased its prices for the next few days, and is also removing a lot of flexibility to cancel tickets. https://www.newsinenglish.no/2019/04/25/sas-strike-threat-boosts-air-fares/ That is sure to lose Norwegian customer goodwill. Another nail in t...Jump to post
One thing that I am noticing more and more is that passenger behaviour and courtesy is getting worse and worse now. Many passengers have absolutely no respect for anybody else on the aircraft. Had some terrible seat neighbours over the years, but two of my regular pet hates are 1) the passengers who...Jump to post
Hi, Just had my first flight on an A350 900, with the usual excellent service from Singapore Airways :thumbsup: . Interesting to try out a new aircraft type but I immediately noticed something....wondering if it the same on all A350s or just on SQ.......... The SQ A350 does not have individual air v...Jump to post
Apart from the usual forced overnights at the airline's expense (late running/missed connections etc.) in places like FRA or DOH, the best that I have ever had was back in the days when Air New Zealand operated the 747s to LAX stopping at several Pacific islands on the way. On the way back to New Ze...Jump to post
