Since SK decided to "abandon" ARN and focusing on CPH (which is ironic since their HQ is in Stockholm), do you think that there is a room for a new fully Swedish airlines that serves both short and long haul destinations? I mean, Stockholm is one of Europe's major financial and tourist cen...Jump to post
Many people I know don't like the SK livery. I can see the part where people think their livery is too simple with minimal creativity but it is precisely that, which I like about their livery. I took this photo at LHR in July this year (SK A20N) and it looks nice: 5639847 Cheers, A388 I've always h...Jump to post
Many South East Asia nations are pro China, with Cambodia the foremost China all weather friend. China can get South East Asia nation to endorse C919. In addition, being the world biggest archipelago, Indonesia aviation is predominantly domestic. Indonesia does not really need 737 or A320 except fo...Jump to post
Any chance of DL launching ICN-CGK/DPS? With the right timing, DL could helps KE/GA reduce connection time in ICN. IIRC, the ex CGK/DPS flight connects nicely to KE US banks, however on the other way around one have to spend the night at the airport.Jump to post

So if the C and Y have exactly the same seat, then what is the selling point/advantage of paying much more money to fly in Euro-style C? Is it justified by the extra miles/better catering/lounge access?
I'm genuinely asking and didn't mean to troll/start a war. Please explain it like I'm 5
I can only answer for Denmark. No, Flygskam is not that wide spread here. Nor is it growing that much. One thing that "helps" is that our train network is very outdated. The infrastructure is breaking down all the time, the InterCity trains and trains to Germany are from the late 80's-ear...Jump to post

Hello! There has been a trend in the recent years for airline to buy a larger model (738/320/789 or even 739/321/78J) and left the smaller model (73G/319/788 etc) behind. From what I understand, people claimed that the operating cost between the two are very similar and the extra capacity gives the ...Jump to post
Some route from Indonesia that I remember reading from some old aviation magazine: - ORY-XXX-SIN-CGK/DPS-SYD-NOU by UTA - PRG-DEL/BOM-SIN-CGK by OK - DPS/CGK-SIN/BKK-AUH-MAD/VIE/MXP/BRU/FCO/ZRH/ATH by GA. - CGK-DPS-BIK-HNL-LAX by GA. I think at some point GA and KL flew from AMS to MES/SUB. As for t...Jump to post
The last direct flight from Indonesia to North America was Garuda's CGK-HNL-LAX via a DC-10, ended in the late 80s? Northwest planned on starting a 3 weekly SEA-KIX-KUL-CGK using the DC-10 (start date was planned to be 7/1/1996) but for some reason it fell through and was replaced by NW68/69 DTW-KI...Jump to post
They should be shot with organic fair-trade rubber bullets. Sorry, they won't be locally grown though.

Well, some people or even country judge the quality of an airline by the smoothness of the flight or landing. I've heard some people don't wanna fly GA anymore because the flight "is bumpy and I've never experienced it with EK. Maybe because the plane is too small". Mind you that they were...Jump to post
I had the exact same problem when I went for a holiday with my aunt and uncle to Cornwall last summer.

I also think that the sudden price jump is not on purpose, it's just the booking engine doing its job properly! Because I remember reading here that during the big fire in Canada that requires the whole city to be evacuated, the same thing happened and the airlines overides the system to lower the p...Jump to post
Is it possible for them to just snatch 9W NG immediately to cover the max? The lessor is probably happy to have paying customers for a month or two rather than just having their assets sitting and not making money.Jump to post
How true this is ? This means that LH will have only 26 aircrafts of a certain type??? Not really I guess, since they can just assign another letter. For example, GA use PK-GHx for some of their A330 after running out of combination from PK-GPx. Even their 738 uses GMx/GFx/GNx/GDx. So I guess LH ca...Jump to post

The reason Russian airlines don't register Airbus and Boeing to the RA- register is because there is a huge import duty/tax on non-russian aircraft. I've heard about this a lot.

Then the story changed. Lion Air threatened to sue the safety committee member who made the not airworthy comment.

Are Indonesian/ Ethiopian pilots with few flight hours limited to fly MAXs only? Does Indonesian Airlines/ Lion Air maintain their non-MAXs in developed nations?

Seems to me people are more concerned about damaging Boeing and the 737. Indeed. The level of ignorance and veiled racism in this thread is astonishing. I'm in the air force in my country.

I know I'm gonna get some heat from this, but I'll ask it anyway. Based on previous history, at what point will an aircraft type is grounded following some accidents?

Before you guys plays the "third world country airline who doesn't maintain their planes and wants to see their passengers die" card, there's an indication of an unhealthy duopoly between GA and JT, ever since SJ "merged" with GA. Fare has been increasing up to 200% in the last f...Jump to post

It is still available, but there is something wrong with it. I tried to dummy book ARN-SIN-CGK vv and the outbound sector is normal.

Next winter, TUI will have direct flights to Thailand from Skellefteå (SFT) and Karlstad (KSD) using a 787.
