Sorry, Spanish only: https://maduradas.com/sepalo-gobierno-vendera-gasolina-a-aerolineas-en-petros/ In another reckless attempt to enrich themselves, the Maduro regime today decreed that all international airlines have to pay for jet fuel in Venezuela in Petros, the fake virtual currency created by...Jump to post
Apparently someone in Toulouse has been listening to Alan Joyce's musings in the subject. However, this feature might be first available in A330s

In my home airport of CCS, the most exotic and exciting thing I can remember is Conviasa leasing from the likes of Air Tahiti Nui or AirAsia X. Pretty cool.Jump to post
Getting back to aviation....The Maduro Dictatorship opened up travel and trade access to the Dutch Caribbean (the ABC islands), after having blocked them since last January. It remains to be seen if any airline deems it worth the while to reestablish flights between the Islands and Venezuela. If th...Jump to post
At least for now, Wingo is not affected and continues its regular flights to CCS.

Neat. Now I`ll have to self-connect in BOG or LIM, with the first leg obigatorily on a crappy local carrier.Jump to post

I guess that must be the reason why N924VA was delivered few months after N925VA?

Didn't SAA used to have like 2 x daily B744's on the JNB-LHR route? Plus the CPT flight. Why the drop in capacity over the years? Because they have been losing money for years to London. If not for politics/ego route likely would be dropped entirely long time ago. Which begs the question: how come ...Jump to post

Thing is, the ME3 are an excellent stopover if you're visiting the Seychelles from anywhere except central/southern Africa. Also, I think SEZ is physically too small to sustain a meaningful hub operation.Jump to post

There can also be no more than two teams from Europe in any group, and no more than one nation from any other confederation - does anyone else think this should be done away with? Nah, I like that.

As an aside, with the growth in the SIN mini hub, could we see a daily OOL-SIN on a 330 once the OOL expansion is complete? Would give QF an edge in the premium stakes there and provide an additional QLD daily frequency. Or, would we be more likely to see another BNE daily or upgauge to 388? You'll...Jump to post

Don’t see any other US cities that could support KBP flights, but I’m sure the local fan clubs will chime in!
Wonder if they could do a flyby of Yankee Stadium with it.Jump to post
Thing is, BKK-New York still requires a specialized ULH plane (unlike BKK-California, which can be done with standard currrent-gen longhaul widebodies like the 789 or A359), with plenty of fuel tankering and probably without the yields to cover the costs. And there are plenty of options to do it one...Jump to post
California: Well, they do have the planes to do it nonstop, problem is they might not have the yields to make the route economically sustainable.
New York: Hahahahahahaha no.

"twin-aisle airplane seating 220 to 270 passengers" sounds more like a 767-300 to me ( ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_767#Specifications ). 220-270 sounds like it would be well within the 788 territories to me. 788 is advertised to seat 240-250 in a two class configuration.

Newbie-ish question that might be out of place here, but I don't know where else to put it: What is it about the C-Series that scares Boeing (and to a lesser extent Airbus) so much, while they seem to get along with Embraer's offerings? The potential for a CS500 or 700?Jump to post
Aviation will be one of the last (if not the last) industries to abandon fossil fuels. Energy density is a nice to have elsewhere, but absolutely essential here.Jump to post
I'm just an armchair engineer, but I'm skeptical of a widebody MOM unless it's something like a 788 with slashed weights,Jump to post
Air New Zealand plans to fly non-stop from Auckland to New York City and Chicago once the airline orders and recieves either the A350ULR or B777X. They don't have to wait, 789s and 359s are already operating routes around that length. EDIT AKL-ORD 7112 nms AKL-EWR 7656 nms compared to.. SIN-SFO 734...Jump to post
