I thought the A340-500 belongs to Carrier from Protugal, it still carries a CS- Registration.
It is definitely not airworthy, some parts of the engines are missing and the rest seems to be in a rather bad shape as well.
In general I think this is a good move. It s ridiculous that a Train ticket to your next city is more expensive than a flight from Germany to Mallorca. First it is an environmental decision and second will make the life harder for Carriers like WIZZ and Ryanair with their strange concepts of employm...Jump to post
Back on track I really do not like all the individuel airliners in the EU getting a national bailout the EU should decide based on a set of objective criteria which airliners get a bailout. Criteria could be unique routes, crical routes (e.g. business travel more importent then tourism), medical su...Jump to post
I think BA just started a series of decisions which will be made later today resulting in all major EU carriers stopping flights to China. Last but not least February is usually a very weak month for the China flights so the economical impact may be far weaker than the symbolic character of this dec...Jump to post
This is quite a common practice these days.
I remember LH doing this on a delayed NGO-FRA stopping at WAW and a CCS-FRA flight stopping at LIS
But still no problem because they get control of their country and their border backJump to post
APU would be my suggestion!Jump to post
Nice one! DUS is tricky under x wind conditions even more with southerly winds! Aircrafts can handle a lot of side movement! However looks like bad technique, late decrab resulted in an overcorrection and i could hardly see him braking the rate of descent. We have an Airbus Landing technique Sim Mis...Jump to post
With AB gone, getting slots at TXL shouldn't be any issue[/quote]
Not quite correct!
In case of a sudden grounding slots will be given on a first come first serve basis! E.g Ryanair which is LHs major concern
I heard a Rumor that a Slot at TXL filled with a wide body is worth 4 narrow body slots!
And because everyone is expect ion AB to be out of money by then LH is trying to secure as much as they can!
Only a rumor!!!
AF have been making an en-route stop on the way between Bogotá and Paris quite on quite a few ocadsions of late. It has been mostly in Point a Pitre, Guadalupe; but today it's Lisbon. Interesting to see how as AF is approaching LIS, to the north you see another A340 coming from BOG, with the same e...Jump to post
The job of the FA in the cockpit isn't to restrain the pilot from doing something dumb. It's to open the door. Typical Euro airlines. Cutting safety to save a dollar. Didn't know we took an extra FA on board for the 4 eye rule or where do you see the saving? US carriers are still using the 4 eye pr...Jump to post
Nicole Kidman (vs) Jannifer Aniston, no match I strongly disagree on this! There was never a need and will never be a need for 3ME carriers!

For LH the situation is similar to the CAN flight which was CXX a couple of years ago. If HKG was full CAN was booked very well now if SFO is full SJC is booked very well if SFO has a lot of open seats there are even more open on the SJC flight. From my knowledge SJC as the lowest avg load factor of...Jump to post
