I’d hardly think that a launch date would be anywhere near May, likely to be the latter part of the year when there’s cooler temperatures make Dubai a more attractive holiday destination. I can see it happening, British holidaymakers enjoy winter sunshine, and with the weak value of the £ going furt...Jump to post
Will I still be able to take my Emotional Support Mila Kunis with me?
Not to worry, there’s plenty of A380’s parked up at DWC that they weren’t using, nothing to see here, move along... This is the comment I was expecting to read. Ya got 100+ A380s, what does one less matter? I was there just a few weeks back, 3/4+ A380’s all parked up, probably 6+ 777’s that I count...Jump to post
I may have worded the title not in the best way, but please refrain from passing your opinion on Brexit please. This is merely a question about the contribution to the U.K. economy after the withdrawal from the EU. Today, Boris and Donald have agreed to a huge trade deal, but what impact or contribu...Jump to post

Rumours to which I have heard, are strike action over the August bank holiday weekend has been spoken of, along with a weekend In the middle of August or several one-off individual days.
I guess we will have to wait and see over the coming days what BALPA notifies BA of.
One thing to bear in mind with these numbers is that on many domestic routes that UA and DL both serve, the amount of cargo carried will be minimum to none. If you were to to only use only Trans-Con and International flights, I'm sure this number would jump dramatically, the many domestic flights se...Jump to post
Many moons ago, my ex-wife was a member of staff at Ryanair. During a conversation it was said that at some point in the future, Ryanair would like to enter the North American market, Michael O’Leary touted business class as ‘Beds and Bl*wjobs’. At one point, in the not so distant past, rumours I he...Jump to post

I know of one airplane, but it could be more. There are many ex-Hong Kong airplanes available.
Ben has reported that SAA will get A350’s in the second part of this year, (link below) anyone got any idea as to where these Aircraft will be coming from? https://onemileatatime.com/south-african-airways-a350/ I’m pretty certain I’ve read elsewhere that the A350 book is pretty full, so I’m guessing...Jump to post
Evening everyone Having seen numerous thread over the past few days all reading the same regarding the A380 converting to Freighter etc... What will happen to the PAX versions (Although there is few)? Do they have conversion available to them once they’ve finished? Or will it be straight to the scra...Jump to post
A friend of mine was Cabin Crew on the return sector from ISB, said loads were about 50/60% in each cabin, many of the PAX which he spoke to didn’t even realise that BA had resumed flights back to Pakistan.

STC gave an interview the other day that they hope to have phased out the A380 by the mid 2030’s. Now, granted, this is a long way off, but what would Emirates’ plans be for keeping capacity high, which they currently offer with the A380. For example, Emirates currently offer 6 DXB-LHR flights per d...Jump to post
Could this also have been a reasoning as to why FI were interested in purchasing WOW AIR with immediate access to an all Airbus fleet?
The last Virgin Atlantic A340 scheduled service will arrive into LHR on 1st November 2019, 2 A340’s will be kept on as ‘Spares’ for a further few months, operating select routes on an adhoc basis. How’s your chance to get out and see these beautiful French ladies for one final time. I’ll be said to ...Jump to post
Never. Is the answer Personally I think it’ll stay what it currently is, specialist cargo, LCC’s and a car park for EK’s aircraft on downtime. One thing that moving to DWC would hinder EK and other airlines using it, would be that it’s right in the middle of nowhere, it’s a good 40 minute drive to t...Jump to post
You MAY get what you voted for. Can you imagine the public outrage of BA being a foreign carrier in the future... Hope they can find a solution. I don’t think anyone would actually know! It’s a bit like asking them how they feel about Alex Cruz (Spanish) being the CEO of BA. It’s the same old mantr...Jump to post
At my company, the usual procedure for wind shear will be for maximum thrust, and then to fly to go-around procedure, usually by hand until the level off altitude, which is usually FL050. Usually, a normal go-around would only require climb thrust, usually 1800-2500fpm, which is one click and two-cl...Jump to post
Personally the A380 arrived at a time when it really wasn’t viable. The economy in general was in a bad place, the $, £ & € were weak and banks were being bailed out. But that said, IMO, the A380 has arrived both too late and too early. Had it arrived in the late 90’s early 00’s it would have be...Jump to post
With the demise of European Carriers growing larger as we speak who will be the next airline to go bankrupt?
Over the past 3 years, we’ve seen Air Berlin, Monarch, Primera, (Alitalia to a degree) and now Germania (too name but a few)
Who do we think will be the next airline to go bankrupt?
What will happen to its new A330neo which, I think, is due for delivery pretty soon? Has this been cancelled?
The likes of AirBerlin and Flybe, also Monarch too, started off as full service carriers and tried to turn themselves into a LCC. They didn’t have the cost base too do this. Hence why they’ve failed/failing. Too be a successful LCC, you need to immediately start as one. As for how they’re doing, you...Jump to post

At least Airbus didn't offer the same resale guarantee they offered against the A340!
They'd be shipping money if they did!
You’ve got the awnser even before posting the question: why hasn’t LEVEL expanded at great capacity than what Norwegian did?

Afternoon All A few years ago, LEVEL was created by IAG to challenge the like of Norwegian, but there expansion has been somewhat timid in comparison. Granted, Norwegian are undergoing financial worries currently, but why hasn’t LEVEL expanded at great capacity than what Norwegian did? Thoughts? OMAAJump to post
From a daily news brief I receive. Virgin Atlantic (UK) secured two aircraft via wet lease in an effort to maintain schedules as it faces the threat of a strike by pilots over Christmas and new year. Any idea who the carrier is? Delta are provisionally lending us 2 767’s to cover JFK flights. Depar...Jump to post
Could it be something along the lines of operating all models of 787 to LHR/FRA or something along those lines?

I’m gonna throw this one out there, but what if QF launched a business only flight, similar to that of SQ, between SYD-LHR.
As has been said before, if SYD-LHR is launched, then what would be the outcome of PER-LHR or even the current SYD-SIN-LHR.
Isn’t SQ the only ones that do it still? SIN-EWR-JFK-FRA-SIN I think In current terms that’s probably about as close as you’re likeky to get OMAA Curious about this one. They fly EWR-JFK, just as a positioning flight? Why not use either EWR or JFK as your NYC airport? No this doesn’t happen, you’d ...Jump to post

The question i ask is, why?
Non of the US3 seem interested in adding capacity to London. So that begs the question of, why?
Also, even if they wanted to add capacity, they’d find a way of shoehorning there way into LHR, as that’s the golden goose.
It seems a bit of a captive market for the RR engines, lets say, STC announced that they didn't want the RR motors, then what? Nobody else in current form, manufactures an engine for the A380... Or perhaps STC was thinking that with all the parked 777's, they could bolt a few GE90's onto those A380...Jump to post
