If the old WOW Air model did not work, why should it work now? It arguably *did* work, until the A330s and overexpansion happened. I think if they let things stew for a few years like how they initially did they'd see better results. Lord knows Iceland's economy could use it, and so could my wallet...Jump to post
AMS has been in the (local) news time and time again, they're really dropping the ball and as a passenger the experience has only gotten worse. I really hope they manage to get things on track because this has been going on for years.Jump to post

https://www.businesstraveller.com/business-travel/2019/07/23/faa-approves-new-middle-seat-design/ Looks like the S1 seat designs that were making the rounds not too long ago with a larger recessed middle seat that the aisle seat can be slid over have been approved by the FAA.

Last night I was traveling on a DL A321, and noticed that at door 2L and 2R the seats in the row in front of the exit (I believe row 12) were partially blocking the door. The back of the seat came to approximately the window of the exit door, roughly covering 1/3 of the door and exit. How is this l...Jump to post
If it was a SpaceJet order (there's NO WAY), I think this entire board would implode
I'd like to see it though!
One thing I keep noticing about myself reading this, is how my first instinct is to side with the pilots and assume something just went terribly wrong (midair collision with a Malay military jet tearing open the cockpit window, fire on board, etc etc), but the home simulator has always perplexed me....Jump to post
There also seems to be a lot of passengers who were allowed to travel one way with the bag and then told on the return that it’s too big. Either use the rules or don’t. My wife fell victim to this. The bag was the same outbound as inbound. During her stay in the UK the baggage policy changed, she r...Jump to post
Absolutely no sympathy for Boeing for sitting on this for too long when they writing has been on the wall for the past decade. Congrats to Airbus with their success in the type, and to American if the rumor turns out true! I still feel it's not truly a 757 replacement, but I don't think something li...Jump to post

The industry has got itself into a crazy situation with their pricing model being wrong. :checkmark: :checkmark: The cargo bays are designed for the everything-but-kitchen-sink luggage regimens... the carryon bins are not. I've always said it was crazy to charge for 1st-bag, but have carryon free. ...Jump to post
The original in-cabin video of the right side may very well be the view of one of the last people to get out given how far back they were. Really scary thought. Also note how some smoke was already present just as the aircraft stopped in that video. I think there are elements of truth in everything ...Jump to post
I saw the video on twitter before coming here, it really made my heart sink!! I'm glad it seems everyone made it out, the flames are incredible. I'm glad the front doors were clear of the fire.

Here's my issue, working as a service agent and seeing these kinds of situations often (not daily, but certainly weekly) I *know* for a fact there are procedures for handling WCBD (w/ "Dry" Batteries).

It's honestly pretty embarrassing over the years to realize it was never quite the globe I hated but rather how they've been using it, especially the gold.

Anything to bring a cheatline back is decent in my book. Don't know if it's related to their strategy but it almost looks more like a premium brand than an LCC, it's giving me a department store vibe.

Would this be a perfect opportunity for a carrier like easyJet to start a transatlantic hub using KEF as a 'halfway' base? Common equipment available to the current fleet (less the 330s), would relieve any pressure (if there is any) on the current fleet during the summer. Maybe not quite on the sam...Jump to post
Can we expect the original branding to survive or can we anticipate a change? I don't know if we'll see something like WOW by Icelandair or something completely different. I know Air Canada Rouge somehow works but I wonder how Icelandair actively eating into their own market will be beneficial eithe...Jump to post
In case I'm missing something, what opportunities are there for Icelandair in acquiring WOW instead of letting them fizzle out?
That being said I've flown WOW many times and would hate to see them go, they were a great option for cheap Atlantic crossings to see my family
Quick mock up based on your image: https://i.imgur.com/ut8nxU4.png I acutally really really love this one and feels closer to what United is probably planning when they say evolution.

The type of arrogance being displayed by the US carriers and regulators is going to cost lives. Mark my words, we'll be seeing the next incident with them if nothing is done about it.

I believe I read something about how Vueling was a less marketable brand and name overall (since a lot of folks don't know how to pronounce it).

Hi all, Saw a couple of recent articles touting Boeing's "new" SUGAR (Subsonic Ultra Green Aircraft Research) wing concept. From what I know, the last I saw of this was back in 2010 or so.

Honestly what are they thinking sending a pink aircraft with that registration to a conservative country like India? They weren't.

Looking at the images, I've wondered something. How is one supposed to open the main doors with the pressure of water preventing an outwards force?

Petty as it may be, I would really love to see Norwegian go under just to prevent a successful precedent of these silly antics convince others to follow suit.
The loss of competition isn't great, but I don't like the idea of the cruiseship industry tactics spreading to aviation.

I actually work for a certain purple airline at AMS, and I can guarantee about 85% of the pax are transfer traffic only.
