Finally, JV's directly hurt pilots and flight attendants with less and less destinations served with Delta metal. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that all JV's are is the shuffling of flights to foreign carriers that have cheaper costs. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if in 10 years the o...Jump to post
CO used to fly to BRS. I wonder if UA would ever go back there? I flew it a couple of times into EWR and it was always packed although I accept bums on seats does not translate to good yields. The south west has one hell of a trek up to LHR/LGW to get across the pond with a direct flight. Just a tho...Jump to post
Crazy, crazy situation. Never flown KE......never will. Poor culture that needs to change.Jump to post
Can I ask one question here. I see all these responses, some people getting all heated up etc (normal thread I guess) but ultimately, given that we are talking about Y, do the majority of the flying public really give a s### what the service is like in Y. The majority, who would not know one plane/a...Jump to post
Whilst I commend VS for putting their oar in early doors, by the time this runway is built we will probably be seeing VTOL aircraft at LHR!!Jump to post
Theres a national/regional language barrier here that some people aren't appreciating. "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition". Been to England many times and heard over and over "time for me tea" but they don't drink tea! Of course it's from Yorkshire and there are regional di...Jump to post
I do like it. It certainly does not blow mw away but it was never going to, being that it was an evolution as opposed to a revolution. Nice work UA. Lets get a 777 and 787 out in there soon as I think they will look much more impressive.Jump to post
Good luck STN with that ambitious forecast. Apart from the fact that many have tried and failed they IMHO are going to have to make the rail connection experience a darn site better to Liverpool Street and as for driving to the airport......when they get any bad weather, the M11 can be hell on earth...Jump to post
So looking at this. A couple of years out. Gives them the time to get slots at LHR or perhaps LGW. I don't see them going anywhere else. If they get the former then UA ponies up, buys B6. Hey Presto. UA are back in the game at JFK. Easy :stirthepot: I wish B6 all the best. This could get interestingJump to post
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 gradient on the cheatline (?) is really nice too. As for the other blue head design recently posted, I'm really...Jump to post
Came across this today. Hopefully this is just as much of a pipe dream as it looks! C'mon, now - you mean to tell me you saw the following on that same page and actually thought, "Yep, this may be legit," ?

Wow! A very nice bit of kit! Cannot wait to see her in the skies......tough week for Boeing, this is one hell of a pick me up!Jump to post

It’s smart and has hints of the Blue livery.
The globe is here to stay, its literally popping up everywhere and to ditch it would make no sense at all. UA are after all a global airline so if anything I can only see them "play" with that as we move forward but personally I would like to ditch the gold cheat lines as to me that is ver...Jump to post
That BEA livery does look great. Kudos to BA with these schemes.
Cannot wait to see the remaining ones.
Great Livery, Cannot wait to see her rolled out.Jump to post
How is this all going to come to reality especially those wide bodies I see in the report with no runway extension??Jump to post
[quote="centrair"]The Tokyo airport balance by itself is a very interesting. NRT has been slowly becoming the LCC and beach market hub while HND has been pulling Point to Point business (or with domestic connections). JL and NH have extensive HND domestic connections and the timing is pret...Jump to post
Why were passengers reminded to review the safety card just prior to landing? That is unsettling. It's a standard announcement on BA as well as reminding you to remind yourself of the location of the nearest exit, and in the even of an emergency, leave all belongings behind. It seems to be standard...Jump to post
Wow....what an incredibly nice women.....not!!!
I get this can be an issue but for goodness sakes, there was a video on how not to handle the situation. The women should be ashamed!

Just from BBC news... ...the fleet will be rebranded as Virgin Atlantic and intention is to feed LHR and MAN and drop “odd” routes That's got be worryingly uncertain for people who rely on FlyBe's flights on routes such as SOU-EDI. I sure hope they stick with SOU-EDI. Have flown that route a number...Jump to post

Very interesting. Cannot wait for the announcement. Historic to me is a suggestion they are bring back a route from way back but I am not sure. if I was a betting man it will be to JNB or GUMJump to post
I got over the disappearance of the name "Continental" and you can get over the loss of your precious tulip.[/quote] Do people actually miss the tulip that much? Brands move on, it's fine.

The airline has opened an official investigation into the matter; it seems like it was the pilot/s who caused some commotion. Furthermore it appears that it was someone who had paid for First Class who had to move back. If that is the case I hope they are going to be getting a shit load of miles/co...Jump to post

There was some speculation that Cathay's mistake was a publicity stunt, but there's no way the marketing team at Thomas Cook would get the green light to pull this off: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/travel/news/article.cfm?c_id=7&objectid=12137580[/quote] You sure about that?...…..I wonder how many...Jump to post
Also quick side note today October 1st finally brings an end to sUA metal and sCO metal because the FA's are FINALLY operating as one and can fly any aircraft in our fleet. This should greatly improve our reliability, and our operations especially during weather events. No longer will for example O...Jump to post
