Re: ET using B738(!) ARN-ADD

I can't remember when they changed but ET operated a 737-800 with a fuel stop for many years on between ADD and ARN. It was eventually up-gauged to 787 and the tag on to OSL was added.

Re: Long Thanh Int'l Airport: Construction and Development Thread

Traffic wise Vietnam and HCMC needs this airport even with COIVD-19 happening. Vietnam has a huge domestic market due to the shape and limited land infrastructure in some ways that means it is similar to Norway (geographically, not economically). It's probably 4 years since I went to SGN last and it...

Re: Nordic Aviation - 2020

If one looks at domestic aviation history there has always been competition in Sweden. IF both BRA and Norwegian seize operations there is likely to be another coming in. There is hardware and skilled staff available. The only thing that would be needed is investors...

Re: First SAS 737 in new livery

I think that the new livery looks good on all their aircrafts except for the A350. Is this the first 737 with a racoon mask?

According to the article the total fleet will move from 17 airplanes, all models, to 100. It is mentioned that they envision more than 2-3 A380 but that market data will dictate the final number.

Re: SAS moving LAX route from ARN to CPH

Congratulations AY! For every LH flight that moves away from ARN AY gains pax on theirs since HEL is often a lesser back track than CPH if there are no direct connections (planes, trains etc). SK is caught in the dilemma that they can not have three LH hubs since there isn't enough passengers for it...

Re: 789 Western Europe to Southeast Asia

TK starts IST-DPS (6400mi) sometime soon. That qualifies as a proper longhaul 789 flight. Id also say that it is more about that there aren't that many 787 operators in Europe and Asia.

Re: A220, (CSeries), Too Noisy for Zurich

I live straight under the glide slope into Geneva airport so we do see a fair deal of A220's. Landings are the loudest and I would say that the A220 is the quietest of the commercial aircraft coming in. I've not had a chance yet to compare with the NEO and the Max that have the same generation engin...
