Ever heard of politics? America is not very popular in large parts of the middle east The distance is long, so market has to be worth it. Morocco is not middle east. So why do the US airlines fly to Israel and not other countries in the Middle East. For real? Cultural, economie, political, military...Jump to post
Looking at schedules, train can bring you from Antwerp to London at 8:59 and leave back at 19:34. So the plane schedule, while being a bit better, does not give you much more time in London it seems. Still total travel time by plane would be 2 hours while train would be close to 7 hours. Surely for...Jump to post

Classic Ryanair: Give me route-subsidy or lower cost or I'll get out of here. Classic Gunboat diplomacy.Jump to post

Plus if you want to take anything larger then a cary on bag the fr option cost extra, plus the hassle of rechecking bags if you fly with different carriers. Not all, like Ryanair for example , interline
Plus a night sleepover in dublin cost money as well, is that worth the savings?

Skymark of Japan were the final customers of the 737NG, the last -800 JA73AC was delivered late last month. That’s the answer I was looking for, thanks.

but as cheap as BA has been behaving in recent years under Alex Cruz you'd think a chance to save 4000 miles daily on fuel wouldn't be missed! And if VS and LH and AI can adjust within hours of the NOTAM you'd think BA could do it within 4 days after them. Something more to this than I think we see...Jump to post
Because planes might already be planned, schedules made and staff placed. it's a thing if planes arrive hours earlier, or later, it requires time to adjust. it's not a simple snap of the fingers and lets fly straight again. Planning is made in advance, as soon as a new "roster" is made for...Jump to post

I wonder if any of the European big 3 will ever try 3 class config on intra European routes. Especially BA which is operating from the largest premium market in the world. 8J on A319, 12J on A320 and 16J on A321. This would be followed by premium economy 3+3 with reclining seats, meals and drinks a...Jump to post
I've always wondered how many countries literally only have one airport that handles commercial flights.

I think the E195 might be a partial 737-700 replacement. Thinner routes can move to klc with a loper operation cost. White other routes will move to a future NEO/Max fleet, With the low end being the a320 or 737-8.Jump to post

I know that Fokker's bankruptcy pretty much ended any ability for it to be offered, but would a F60 have been competitive with the Q400 and ATR72, or would it have had the same economic and weight issues theF50 sounds like had?

What's the range on F50? How far can it go without stopping? I ask because in mid-December 2016 the last F50 in WA flew non-stop from Perth to Indonesia. It was a 7 hour and 23 minute flight.
