I would gamble on this being a legal visit for the upcoming lawsuit against the NFL and the LA Rams. I am sure Spanos will be deposed and this might be why. My guess is someone else charted the plane. Can’t see the city paying someone to fly in private to answer questions. I don't think someone els...Jump to post
Anyone able to explain this?
Its the LA Chargers owners private jet at Downtown Airport. Seems to have been sitting there overnight judging by the photos also. A long way for some maintenance work on a small private aircraft surely?
LM are planning to take over the following routes: Aberdeen to Belfast City, Birmingham, Belfast City and Jersey. Edinburgh to Cardiff, Exeter, Manchester, Newquay, Southampton Glasgow to Exeter, Southampton Inverness to Belfast City, Birmingham, Jersey Newcastle to Exeter, Southampton The routes wi...Jump to post
It's a glorified landing strip with a 1960s built transatlantic terminal running on 4-5 departures a day and in the dead of winter there is as little as one flight a day some days. As long as it operates as a commercial airport it will bleed tax payers money every single year. The cargo ops there is...Jump to post
I don't see a particularly bright future for the airport. Whether that be improved transport links or additional service, or even just maintaining certain ones. The airport is now close to being on a par with EMA, LBA, NCL, LPL. Its going to end up much the same as those airports with some added Lon...Jump to post
Given the Scottish budget last week I am amazed that the government is still propping up Prestwick Airport with Taxpayers money whilst Glasgow continues to fall in numbers (I am not saying that is the only reason). Time to let Prestwick go the way of the dodo, it would have done years ago if commer...Jump to post
Four new routes launched from Edinburgh, beginning in S19. Year round service to Stavanger (x4 weekly), Bergen (x3 weekly), Islay (daily). Guernsey will also operate during the summer season (x1 weekly). Bergen, Stavanger and Guernsey will operate on the newly acquired 37 seat Embraer 135. The Isle ...Jump to post
Apparently Loganair have applied for slots at two German airports. Eurowings are dropping DUS-GLA from next Spring, this is expected to be one of the new Loganair routes. I'd imagine it would be that and an unserved route from EDI & GLA. I know Ryanair have dropped their route to Bremen from Ed...Jump to post
Seems like Frontier are throwing darts at the board to an extent in seeing what hits and what doesn't. Lots of chopping and changing in terms of routes and frequencies. Wouldn't be surprised to see them try routes like MCI, IND or even Cincy at some point.Jump to post
It has 2x weekly service to CRL but that will be cut when Ryanair moves out after the summer.Jump to post
Might Scotland have its own "major" airline in the coming years?

What is going to happen to their MAD route out of GLA? MAD and FRA seem to be the only routes that haven't been picked up from GLA, nor pre-existed under FR at EDI. Although EDI serves HHN with FR, and MAD is covered by EZY daily and additionally with IBS through the summer, so not sure if FR will ...Jump to post
Some routes can also be move to Prestwick as well. How long has they served GLA? PIK is way down their pecking order now too, as has also been evidenced by further minor cuts there yesterday. EDI is the order of the day now in Scotland. Anything left in the west now is DUB and some core Med and Eas...Jump to post

New base at Memmingen: Ryanair’s Memmingen Summer 2018 schedule will deliver: 1 based aircraft ($100m investment) 6 new routes to Fez (2 weekly), Oradea (2 weekly), Seville (2 weekly), Stockholm (2 weekly), Thessaloniki (2 weekly) and Warsaw (3 weekly) More flights to Alicante 19 routes in total 50 ...Jump to post
Would imagine multiple schedule releases this week.Jump to post
Lived in Baton Rouge, I'm British. Only time I ever went to Houston were for Astros games as we didn't have pro baseball in Louisiana. British tourists aren't going there, but they are going to New Orleans in their droves, as are the Aussies. Contiki, Topdeck, Trek America, all these tour companies ...Jump to post
Tour companies like Topdeck and Contiki are bussing hundreds of Aussies and Kiwis through the city every week. New Orleans is the half way point and end of the west coast tour/start of the east coast tours as well, so many people come and go from the city as opposed to passing through as a tourist.Jump to post
I'm British and used to live in Baton Rouge. The amount of Brits who go to New Orleans on vacation and the number of tour companies who go through New Orleans and spend significant amount of time there is ridiculous. I'd say outside Vegas, Orlando and NYC its as popular as any other city with Britis...Jump to post

Israel seems like it's doing well for Ryanair so why not.
I do believe that they will close the Glasgow prestwick base and move all services to Glasgow international
Be interesting in Scotland.
APD is being halved next year, but you also have Brexit looming over. Additionally, to see if APD being cut does anything for PIK.
This is a big loss for all of these airports. I have a major issue with the SNP also wishing to meddle in the airline business by propping up PIK at a huge loss to the taxpayer and its Ryanair routes to the med, which are already well served all over Scotland, yet Glasgow is about to lose its only ...Jump to post
No great loss? In terms of GLA, DY would only operate a point to point business model whereas UA offered a one stop daily business class product to every major city in the US. That's actually a blow to the West of Scotland economy, advantage Edinburgh once again. Great news for BA, EI and KLM thoug...Jump to post

Couple of points from this article: • Greater New Orleans has been one of the hottest economies in the south over the past decade, ranking #1 in economic development wins - what is this based on? New Orleans will never be Atlanta or Houston, Dallas etc but to me its even lagging behind Charlotte, Au...Jump to post
My only concern would be the seats up front. The general public will fill the bleachers and there won't be many empty seats overall New Orleans and the Gulf really needs to diversify its economy away from tourism and with the crash in oil, so one can only hope this is the sort of boost the region ne...Jump to post
