Re: SAS moving LAX route from ARN to CPH

And we have a winner..... For whatever reason (flygskam, high taxes, a shrinking/leisure oriented market/a weaker economy+weaker crown) SAS will be inevitably concentrate most if not all of long-haul flying in CPH. There's no way around this. The Scandinavian market is basically composed by three sm...

Re: S7 flight runs off end of runway, barely takes off

Regardless of what the computer tells you, your instincts should be kicking in, hang on a moment something doesn't seem right - what is happening and what do I need to do about it? cpd.....you cant fly transport category aircraft by the seat of your pants. You must rely on what the aircraft tells y...

Re: Reuters/Norwegian Media: DY at Risk of Collapse

Well, there is a reason that Ireland is chosen by multiple big companies as the place to setup European subsidiaries. Practically no taxation and little regulatory hassle. As for airlines I find it telling that they are registered in Ireland, but operate primarily on the continent. Ireland's corpor...

Re: Reuters/Norwegian Media: DY at Risk of Collapse

The Terms and Conditions for Norwegian pilots are still significantly better than those of average workers. It is that the Terms and Conditions of Legacy airlines are from another planet. Remember, it is the poor passengers who pay the extra high salaries of pilots and other staff. Really?! Trying ...

Re: Reuters/Norwegian Media: DY at Risk of Collapse

Registering their aircraft and employees in what ever country has the least regulatory oversight and lowest labor standards to gain an advantage. Ireland, UK and Norway are the dregs of the regulatory barrel? I think you'll need to provide some citations for that; generally those countries are cons...

Re: Reuters/Norwegian Media: DY at Risk of Collapse

To get a lower cost base it takes creativity, out-of-the-box thinking. Not doing the same as everybody else, doing it differently. It's sad to see that Norwegian is not doing that enough. Part of them wants to, look at their flights to Stewart and Providence. That's one thing good about Norwegian. ...

Re: Norwegian profit warning, try to raise equity

Further up in the thread someone mentioned critical mass.....well, if they lose money on every ticket they sell, there is no critical mass. They will only meet their demise quicker the more they sell. At this point they have to lower cost and attain some pricing power. Pricing power seems almost una...

Re: Norwegian switches engines on all Dreamliner aircraft

The price for one engine is not 3.4 billion. Depending on the exchange rate, it is probably around 20-25 million US dollars. Maybe around 30 million US.

Re: Thai A350 overrun the runway at HKT

I would suggest rubber reverted hydroplanning.

Happens when the tire hydroplanes and water trapped between the runway and the tire boils because of the immense pressure.

Re: Wall Street Journal - New Rules Would Let Airlines Hire Co-Pilots With Less Experience

Makes me want to throw up. Years ago we were told that management wanted contracts that were a result of market conditions. Meaning that if the times were good, we would get better contracts, on the other hand, if times were bad, the contracts would reflect that. Basically a supply/demand situation....

"In a Boeing you slow down to put the flaps out -
In a Douglas you put the flaps out to slow down."

Still the coolest and best looking plane I have flown.

Re: EK521 TRV-DXB (777-300 A6-EMW) crash landing in DXB

I'm interested to understand the reasons why an evacuation was performed on the right hand side, since that's where the fire was? Well, the plane tilts to the right. That means that the slides on the left side may become too steep to use. Or maybe the wind moved the slides on the left hand side. Th...

Re: Farnborough Air Show 2016 - Airbus Orders

Hi,

Or maybe Norwegian had trouble placing the 321 with interested airlines?

Whatever the case it will be interesting to see if the 321LR will indeed be used from Europe to the US east coast.
