So is the French government attempting to dictate Airbus which planes to develop? Since when do governments know which products are good for companies? I really hope this plan hasn't been finalized yet and that the German and Spanish governments will kill it. Reminds the Concorde saga Amazing how m...Jump to post

They must have gotten special US DHS approval for the repatriation flight. When PK served JFK they had to stop in MAN to redo security screening (west-bound only) due to the Pakistan airports not meeting US DHS security requirements. Yikes, have they been given a waiver or did they take meaningful ...Jump to post
It's all marketing. They can run fancy ads and say how much they're doing to clean the aircraft and get people to think it's ok to fly again. The aircraft is the least of my worries. It's the hundreds of people on it that are the problem! From what the experts are saying COVID transmission in the v...Jump to post
Perhaps they will professionally foster B2B synergy, progressively right-shore agile web-readiness, or professionally iterate enterprise supply chains? Could also assertively empower progressive internal or "organic" sources, phosfluorescently strategize technically sound mindshare, intera...Jump to post
The second hand market will be flooded with 787s. Do these staffing subsidiaries hold any actual assets like planes/slots/etc? It sounds like purely a staffing agency with pilots/FAs. What an insane structure, declare bankruptcy for your employees but the main corporate entity can continue (and re-...Jump to post

Well, the Saudi Government is essentially the Royal Family, and not all the members of this family make it to biblical ages so to speak. Also, the days of Saudi Royal visits with dozens of aircraft on the move are long gone. It seemed unlikely, but they have become a lot more pragmatic in compariso...Jump to post

Good Riddance?!?!? Hold.Your.Horses. This may not be horrible news to you, but for me and hundreds of thousands of Professional Travel Agents around the world, this news is devastating to OUR industry.

Sounds like an attempt to fragment the working groups and put downward pressure on wages. Basically they are saying that the SAS brand means nothing. Great move lol.Jump to post

It happens quite often in the industry. For example, Qatar and LOT sold their A350s immediately after delivery just to lease them back.

I agree it was a well made video. I did catch one or two debatable statements, but that's just because like most a.net members I can be pretty damn pedantic about such things. I enjoyed the interviews, the tour of the airport, and the overall photography very much. Wendover has done a large number ...Jump to post
Is it open for mileage redemption yet? It takes a special kind of "achievement" to earn a seat on one of these flights. The kind that prevents you from travelling on most other airlines. No passport checks for this flight, in the article it says arrives and departs from a separate area to...Jump to post

In reality it is only effective based on how wisely the carbon off set money is actually spent, and how much of that goes to actually offsetting the CO2 (versus administrative purposes at whatever green venture they invest in, etc) I would caution against injecting reality into what has become a po...Jump to post
What amazes me about the Hindenburg Disaster is how many people survived. Well it didn't crash hard and the fire burning upward at first gave people time to run from the gondola before it collapsed on itself. Its unfortunate that George C.

The solution found by the company’s engineers was to blow cool air through tiny holes in the blades. It seems kinda like most of the engine manufacturers all have products with problems.
