Why didn't PER pull this stunt prior to the Covid-19 crisis? Pure grandstanding on their part. Some airport authorities need a good pick up the backside. Perth airport is 100% owned by Australia Development Group which is in turn owned by Heathrow Airport and a public fund and a private fund. Qanta...Jump to post
It seems everyone is so pessimistic. A new company could still emerge from administration, right? It's obvious VA does not lack interested parties. What the voluntary administration does is to wipe out debt and existing shareholders. So this is not Ansett and all is not lost. The debt holders will ...Jump to post
Agreed - I do wonder what would happen if Qantas tried to follow suit with maybe just an daily MEL-SYD-BNE run now that VA is barely operating. Passengers could be staying away from flying with Virgin because of the rumors about them closing down. So maybe they are experiencing a double whammy! Qan...Jump to post

The hysteria surrounding this outbreak will slow down aircraft deliveries significantly in the second half of this year. Perhaps the effect will go well into 2021. With record high delivery rate for all aircraft excepted the 737 MAX, one must accept the fact the whole thing could look like a train ...Jump to post
Make sense to acquire LR/XLRs to complement Max fleet like quite a few other airlinesJump to post
I'm going to guess United, for two reasons. First they're already on the board there for the A321XLR order, this could be an disclosed part of that order, and second they have 38 763s which while being recently nicely updated are getting old. They're 763 fleet ranges from 1991 to the three former H...Jump to post

Okay, last year I flew BNE-AKL-IAH and I had to have my passport checked and electronically tagged making the connection. If that's not clearing customs, then :confused: You may have had the airline check your passport to make sure you were entitled to enter the USA but that’s absolutely nothing to...Jump to post

3 grounded out of 33 inspected. I recall QF not having much spare capacity in their NG fleet. Will we see more domestic 747 flying in the near term?
Can you imagine if the NG was grounded. That would be the vast majority of the domestic air system gone, would probably put VA out of its misery completely. I mean, its not that hard to imagine, given it has actually happened before, to the entire QF fleet, for reasons unrelated to safety, and was ...Jump to post
Qantas engineers union is calling for the airlines' entire fleet of B737s to be grounded following the discovery of cracks in the pickle forks of a second aircraft. Is this a reasonable request, or an overreaction? Qantas has not yet confirmed there were cracks found in a second B737. https://www.s...Jump to post

I thought Delta has a larger international network by countries & cities than AA? For the discussion to be constructive, you need to define whats international presence.

Narita is dead... just about every flight cancelled as roads, rail access are cut. Both JR and Keisei trains to NRT are not running.
Only some local Keisei trains restored by 6pm local time but it takes >2 hrs to get to from central tokyo. CNN reports 7K stranded and its likely to get worse.
The only thing more predictable than Virgin positing an annual loss, is the queue of the same a.net users who come out to stick the boot in, pedal wild conspiracy theories about JB’s boardroom antics, and yearn for the airline to change back to Virgin Blue. Probably not as predictable as posts like...Jump to post

NZ haven’t ruled out more than 1 configuration on the 78J. The 78J cannot and will not do AKL- NYC, there was some misreporting going on. Wait a min, can the 7810 even do AKL-LAX?

NZ mentlons "premium" lay out for their 787-10s. Could be they plan AKL-NYC but they already have the 787-9 which can operate AKL-NYC now.

Can confirm you can open a 172 door against the slipstream. Not all would be able to but many could. Have flown Cessna 172s for years. One can definitely open a door, but whether it can be opened wide enough to fit a person through is another matter. Those doors are pretty broad to allow entry and ...Jump to post
