I have no idea how long it would take to drive from San Francisco to Portland or from Washington DC to Boston, but I bet it is a pain in the ass and would always fly. Until small little domestic flights in the UK become far too expensive to justify, then I will always look to fly. I fully accept cli...Jump to post
Looking through the same source - it appears China Southern are scaling back at Heathrow a considerable amount: https://twitter.com/SeanM1997/status/1218662466193887232 He completely missed the addition of PKX-LHR on A380, so "scaling up" would be the better description. Will look forward...Jump to post

Good Afternoon all, Not sure if this has been discussed (I have tried to find it!) but China Southern is pulling its Wuhan route from London Heathrow and moving it to London Gatwick. Does this not seem odd? Keeping the other services at Heathrow and only moving one of them to Gatwick? source: https:...Jump to post

What about the small Grand Cayman airline? They had been operating the 737 classics. Probably forked out a small fortune in pilot training for their swanky new jets...for (currently at least...) nothing. A side question? Would airlines be compensated throughout the grounding? Or once everything even...Jump to post

Great report - thank you for sharing. Haven't been to Vietnam since 2007 and this report has made me want to return!!Jump to post
Once the FAA says go...at what rate can 737's be delivered? I have no idea what the process is but I have a feeling there is a little more to it then telling the airlines to go to MWH and pick up their jets. Do the airlines have to take them all at once. I think most airlines have additional work t...Jump to post
Just a quick question...
Would winglets to these aircraft get bolted on as such by Boeing before delivery or is it entirely down to the operator to fit them? Just seems bizarre in today's climate, a newly built 767 wouldn't have winglets fitted.
The current iconic livery is instantly recognizable the world over. Everything this man touches is indelibly soiled. Leave it alone! Personally, I don't think it's awful on its own. However, I agree, compared to the current iconic scheme, I feel it is such a step down. Don't see the new proposed sc...Jump to post
Not sure if it has been posted yet or not, but I have stumbled across this from abc news showing 4 variations of the upcoming scheme to the new Air Force One.

Must admit. I think it will be a grower. Much like the Lufthansa scheme!Jump to post
Some great pictures on here...as always! Thanks for sharing. I can't help but wonder about the economics of owning/leasing a single aircraft of any fleet group. In referring to Air Tanzania, (which lets be honest, probably haven't got an endless supply of cash) how is it financially viable to operat...Jump to post
I've been saying for years that EY is trying its damnedest to be SR-2.0 ( No clear market strategy + "me too!" expansion + home market too comparatively limited to support said expansion ) x ( investing in airlines with even shittier prospective outlooks than your own ) = Swissair for the...Jump to post

How many Embraer's will BA CityFlyer bring in supplement the 25 extra weekly flights from LCY? Or will certain flights be cut in order to carry these flights?
This should be a decent increase in pax for LCY!
Someone like China Southern?
A319, A320, A321, A332, A333. Also already have the A320 NEO and A321 NEO.
Thats an ambitious project? Papeete and Tel Aviv?
Wonder just how many 787's they plan to base there, and it seems like EZE will comfortably overtake LGW as their main long haul operation!
Quite a few times I've been departing from the same terminal this last year, the flights appeared to be departing with close to...if not completely....full loads. I am curious as to the numbers as well. Any quick search of available seats on many dates this Summer is showing heavy flights. As for t...Jump to post
Is this an unprecedented move? By this I mean - are there any other traffic/airspace restrictions due to a country seemingly supporting ridiculous groups? Or is this be expected to be the norm? Away from aviation also, it will be interesting to see if this will be another nail in the Qatar 2022 Worl...Jump to post
Enjoyable report. Looks like a very welcoming cabin.Jump to post

Morning all, I haven't found a topic relating to this but seemingly out of the blue, Qatar Airways has announced a direct link to Cardiff Airport, Wales. The link directs you to Cardiff Airport's own website. Very interesting and personally, I think very unexpected. https://www.cardiff-airport.com/n...Jump to post
Should this be finalised, will be a great boost to the 777-X programme. Also, as a side note, when will SQ be likely to start retiring their 777-200's? I'm scheduled to fly on one from Brisbane -> Singapore in December. We talk alot about SQ being notorious for replacing aircraft at a relatively you...Jump to post
You can't compare a charter airline as in Thomson to the likes of British Airways which is a fully scheduled airline, the new Thomson flights to DWC are primarily to serve their cruise ship the TUI Discovery which will be based in Dubai over the winter of 2017/2018. Ahh, I had no idea that they wou...Jump to post
This is a great topic, and as previously stated, many avenues to explore. Just stepping away from the Long Haul angle a second, are BA looking to expand within Europe and N. Africa from Gatwick, or have they reached their full complement of A320 aircraft? (From Gatwick of course.) Now to Long Haul, ...Jump to post
Can't see DY ordering any 77W's. I not have the inside line to their financials, but surely as a low cost carrier, a major low cost carrier, would keep fleet commonality to a minimum. Such as Easyjet, Ryanair and Southwest, having one fleet type is clearly financially beneficial. I think having a 78...Jump to post
Australia lost Ansett Australia, Australian Airlines (I think that's what they were called - with those vividly coloured 767's) and the airline wit in my opinion one of the best liveries EVER - impulse.

I will have to indulge some of these places when I next venture down! Have you made a start on the planning? Some places would be easier than others in that they have more than one flight a day and you can hire a car. Ravensthorpe not so easy: twice weekly and no public transport or car hire.
