More than likely, it will be interesting to know just which 320 this is.

In terms of their chances, I give them six months at best.

Re: Hawaiian Airlines ALL 32N on HNL-OGG

Perhaps HA could be testing the water, seeing if they can viably use the 32N on the inter island routes. While the virtues of the 717 on these runs have been well documented, could HA be seeing if they can use a more fuel efficient and larger aircraft given the current situation, perhaps they could ...

Re: RUMOUR; Ex-Jet Airways 77W’s to find new home.

I would hazard a guess these are going to someone like Nordwind, they’ve been acquiring a few 77Ws lately, so it’s possible they would pick up a few more if they were cheap. And they can very much be classed as European.

Re: Flybe News and Discussion Thread

I know that it seems a foregone conclusion but has there been official confirmation or a press-release from Flybe yet? Not an official press release as such, but according to Devon live a letter was sent to employees at 00:54, so it would seem that it’s confirmed. Source and full article at: https:...

Re: Air Malta to begin long haul services with 2 A321XLR

I’m really not convinced that this is such a good idea, what sort of demand is there on these routes, while the 321XLR is a good aircraft for the job this really smacks of vanity project to me, which with these smaller state owned carriers haven’t ever gone particularly well Good luck to them, they’...

Re: Narrow Body Longhaul development thread

There is one thing that gets me though, There is all this talk of the A321XLR and to a Lesser extent the LR being game changing, however by all accounts these aircraft don’t exactly have stellar runway performance, so while they are opening new long thin routes, won’t these mostly be from airports ...

Leeds was operated for a number of years by a Loganair Saab 340 on behalf of Flybe, it was cut when their partnership ended. I do know that route would work as LBA management have been rumoured to want it back

Re: More Southwest Pressurization Issues

Why would the FAA be “all over Southwest” after nothing more than a possible faulty sensor? Pressurization/pressure sensing issue? Twice in a week? Same airframe? In the history of commercial aviation, I have never heard of a single airframe experiencing the exact same class of failure twice to the...

Re: Alaska unveils Incredibles II promotional livery

Looks pretty nice
I reckon that it would look better if the Alaska logo colours and titles were also red and shades of red to match the incredibles suits and the theme.

Re: Surinam Airways returns twice to Amsterdam Schiphol after flaps issues

Seems strange that they tried again so soon afterwards considering it must have been a fairly serious problem, I would assume this is due to the airlines little fleet, needing that aircraft later on

This seems quite left field, but if it works it works.
Don't think that Singapore Airlines will be that worried though, different market entirely.

Will this be included on all the new deliveries or will it be a optional extra, and I wonder how many of the existing customers will go for the retrofit?

Re: First A330neo Starts Final Assembly

There's probably a few to be sold to some of the European holiday carriers that operate old widebody aircraft. Thomas Cook, Condor etc. I agree with this sentiment, especially Thomas cook, some of their older A330s have garnered a reputation, G-OMYT comes to mind, so I reckon NEO purchase from TCX ...
