Right now there is flight DX3072 operated by MD-83 OY-RUE of Danish Air Transport flying from Milano Malpensa to Copenhagen. Milan is not listed on DAT website as a destination, anyone knows what is this flight for? A charter, subbing for SAS or what else?? ThanksJump to post
These planes can't be delivered and deployed fast enough. AC is suffering a loss of almost 1/4 of it's narrowbody fleet due to the MAX groundings, a per-capita loss higher than almost any other carrier with the MAX in their respective fleets. Can't wait to fly these beauties! Not to hijack the thre...Jump to post
I'm guessing the OP has never had the joy of paying €13 for the "Malpensa Express" and having to stand the entire journey or had the train breakdown at Garribaldi station. Yes, I know which airport I'd choose... I have done it more than once, it is way more expensive than the regional tra...Jump to post
Thing is that MXP is far away from the city center. LIN has the advantage of being very close to the center. Indeed, but right Now there is a very confortante train that takes about 45 minutes from downtown to the airport.. you are seated, ac, plugs and so on, whereas right Now to linate there is a...Jump to post
As of today Milan Linate Airport will close for three months to allow runway repaving and terminal and BHS upgrades. All traffic will move to Milan Malpensa, with the exception of a BA flight to Heathrow and a bunch of FCO-bound AZ flights that will go to Milan Bergamo. This will put a lot of stress...Jump to post
Think how much extra CO2 these avoidance routings make plane emit... how sad we cant overcome these problems, cause a good chunk of the issues mentioned do not actually pose a threat to airliners.Jump to post

I guess all the LIN southern domestic flights will now involve transiting FCO. Rail isn't an option for Calabria/Sicily as there's no high speed line south of Salerno. I think they will keep those destinations non stop ,otherwhise people will just fly Air Italy , Ryanair and easyJet thar all offer ...Jump to post
I think that something that could be done is to have electric tugs that pull the planes short of the runway amd the engines are turned on only 5 minutes before CTOT. this could be useful especially at those airport that have long tale off backupsJump to post
Nice find, OP! Looks like it will be 2x daily on the A220 starting with the new winter schedule on Oct 27, 2019: DL2395 JFK 0800 IAH 1119 DL1921 JFK 1455 IAH 1814 DL2395 IAH 1158 JFK 1622 DL1921 IAH 1822 JFK 2245 I find these schedules so weird, for the very specific minutes .. I think in Europe th...Jump to post

The question isn't about "how Italian" is Air Italy - its about the possibility of outside-EU-state funding/control in order to provide advantage and skirt agreements. Neither of those can be reasonably argued in the case of Delta. Delta does not move aircraft around between it and these ...Jump to post

Could an operator put in a 4 aisle 4 layout or that would be illegal?? Besides the obvious unconfort of when the window guy would have to get up! Just curious! Of course this would also mean longer turnarounds as boarding wouldn't be as dlfast as in a twin aisle... but that may not be such an issue ...Jump to post
According to this BBC article( [url]https://bbc.in/2Ubrc3Y[url] ryanair has reached a bad record: it is one of Europe's biggest polluters.

I was recently looking for a flight.. the nonstop carriers on the route are EasyJet and Hop. The outbound time was more convenient with Hop amd the return with Easyjet.. when i searched the one way leg on AF website, the price for the same flight increased. So i ended up bookimg ezy both ways. Why d...Jump to post
Gang - is there a required minimum layover for an aircraft in a US hub before it can depart for an international location. Somehow I'm remembering like 3 hours so to allow for security sweep. But maybe that's when the flight comes IN from an international location. In other words, if Delta flew an ...Jump to post

Right now there is Air Italy flight IG603 MXP-FCO in the air and it is operated by A7-Lag , an Airbus A320 from Qatar Airways.

Yes, all of them are correct! THANK YOUJump to post
I drove by BGY an hour ago and beside the usual traffic there were two planes that caught my attention: a jumbolino completely painted in dark green and a boring 737 without winglets, blue belly, grey body and kind of a German flag on the tail! Anyone knows what they are? And what they were doing th...Jump to post

Yesterday the first Boeing MAX8 was delivered to Air Italy, the new Meridiana, born with the clear participation of Qatar.
