Maybe the US & others will pressure PAK to open its airspace. PAK is using its airspace to get concessions from India. It is really dangerous to do that. It opens the door for India to do similar petty things. Net net the military incident is long over. So airspace should open Actions have cons...Jump to post
Well, this is common in Indonesia during rains as well, and guess which aircraft type is mostly the culprit?Jump to post
Yes, the weather is quite bad for the last 2 days and will continue for the rest of the week. But SpiceJet has been subject to many allegations about disregarding safety and overworking their Pilots, perhaps this is just the effect of that.Jump to post
IXE has been impacted a lot by CNN. The same catchment area now has 2 airports to be served, with CNN being larger and more modern too. The area is full of gulf NRIs, which is why IXE was a very attractive airport before CNN came into existence. Kannur(CNN) is closer to Calicut(CCJ) than Mangalore....Jump to post

Like it or not, it will be a gamechanger, perhaps not in the best way for LH. Smaller airlines and budget carriers have ordered it. They will start more point to point travel across the pond and maybe even into MiddleEast/South Asia, its going to impact the feed to mega-hubs like FRA and MUC amongst...Jump to post
Fact remains, in the best of times, Air India's longhaul loses money. Now it's almost $700million extra. Is it prudent to start another route which will lose more money in such a circumstance?Jump to post
Cos they lost extra Rs 300 crore is the first couple of months of the Pakistani Airspace ban, now with Iran joining the list, the losses will be higher. I guess losing almost a billion$/year shouldn't call for negativity, lets add more routes to increase these losses further. source : https://econom...Jump to post
Should they just wait for all the airspace bans to be lifted first? They are hemmoraging money for Delhi to EU/NA flights....but I guess they don't care as long as big daddy is paying.Jump to post

I hope Virgin get more slots, 43% is a little much, but at least enough to have 25% of LHR slots at least.

Navi Mumbai airport runway starting to be visible a month back.
This will go down as a classic Anet thread! Here is my take 1) IAG has gotten an amazing deal, Boeing needed this PR win, they got it. Will the LOI ever firm? depends on MAX's entry back into service. IAG will take it if Boeing can get people to trust MAX again. The ball is in Boeing's court. 2) Whi...Jump to post

I think A321XLR and the potential B797 are making life difficult for the larger widebodies and traditional hub airlines. Especially EK will feel the heat soon. Multiple smaller airlines in Europe and middle east will go down this road. Indigo is talking about a new mega order (I am assuming A321XLR)...Jump to post
I still hope there is a B797, cos we really need a new clean sheet for shorter (well relative) flights with all the bells and whistle which B787 and A350 brought for longhaul travel. I guess MAX saga really screwed the timeline. Now XLR makes the business case even more difficult. B797and XLR in the...Jump to post

Interesting factoid but for relevance, how many of the 6,852 islands are populated by over 100 persons?

The most important thing that saved SpiceJet (besides the correct political affiliation of the new owner) was the Marans getting out before it was too late. Jet could and would have been saved had this been done late last year. NG prevented this, now its honestly gone too far to be saved.Jump to post
I said it earlier and say it again, once A380 is gone, EK's business model based on scale would collapse. EK depends on A380 to fill B777 and vice versa. Now the question is how will find slots? DXB is completely full. Is DWC actually happening? There is no word on that....Jump to post

So,JAL received their first A359 which they will operate on the NRT-FUK route which seems a bit excessive since JAPAN is an island.

I guess India just kissed goodbye to a potential investment in Jet by the Hindujas.
