Are there enough gates for Monarch at LGW's North Terminal if taken over by easyJet?Jump to post
We don't know yet, 3-4-3 is not unlikely on an XWB aircraft in Economy. It is for any operator other than a charter. BA already has stacks of Dreamliners in a narrow seat, narrow aisle economy configuration and with more to be delivered. It's converting B772s to narrow seat, narrow aisle economy, w...Jump to post
It'll be interesting to see how the B787-10 is configured for BA, my guess is it'll be premium heavy with no Economy rows in the sections in front of the rear doors. If this is a success we may see more orders for the B787-10 instead of other aircraft. BA may want to avoid A350 configured 3-4-3 in E...Jump to post
If the A380 is such an uneconomic aircraft, why do BA park it all day long at JNB and QF all day long at LHR?Jump to post

... a small scale start up with a fleet of about 8 2nd hand aircraft operating from one base, was never likely to be a success in the long term. BA simply did not have the money, and the management effort required would have been a distraction from the things that really did need to be sorted. But ...Jump to post

3-3-3 is not really premium economy seating, could be PE minus though. Upper deck herringbone angled business class extra space is a good idea. May be tempting for some airlines to go herringbone who don't yet have this seat. 3-5-3 economy could be a winner for those airlines who liked having 5 seat...Jump to post
.....why does BA use the A380 to BOS? Such a relatively short long-haul route. I thought BA preferred to have East Coast USA flights have as much frequency as possible, like JFK. I know there are already 4 flights to/from BOS but as one of them is an A380..... It appears just to be on day 5671 and ...Jump to post
Yes LHR-ORD could be a good route for a BA A380 service, 2 sectors per 24 hour period, giving efficiencies. In the long term I just don't see the larger A350s/ B777s having enough capacity for when the B744s are all retired. Willie Walsh has already said he doesn't want his passengers to pay for a t...Jump to post

I'd fly Norwegian long haul if they had economy extra seating with 2-4-2 and a 32.5" or more pitch.Jump to post
B787-10 - isn't this the perfect aircraft for more choice in economy seating? Passengers would chooses seats according to their needs and the airline would get additional revenues from seat choice payment streams. From the back you'd have standard 3-3-3, then some 3-3-3 rows with extra legroom. Next...Jump to post

If you push the window seat closer to the window wall, shoulders and knees will rub against the wall, if you narrow the aisle, shoulders get hit by the carts and people moving in the aisles, 3-3-3 is just hell on this aircraft, and total hell on LHR-SCL, just like IB express and VY A321 hell on long...Jump to post

Isn't that wonderful? You can get Iberia's bad service for the price of BA. Here's a tip: always avoid Iberia flights when you go between LHR and MAD and choose the BA ones.
