We don't know what AV's social media policy is, but any action by an employee that brings their company into disrepute or potentially impacts their business is likely to find themselves in trouble.

This is so dumb. He brought in alcohol into a sporting venue its not the end of the world. The dumb part was boasting about it on social media.

Finally figured out what this thread was about. Avherald has a report up about it today. Aircraft had a leak with the blue hydraulic system, detected two hours into the flight and carried on. Made a safe landing in Libreville. Would it not have made more sense to air on the side of caution and put t...Jump to post
They also said Belfast was going to be a three aircraft base, it didn't, southend will be the same, Max two planes and a third virtual one via other airports based planes. Good luck though, easy couldn't make it work completely so ryanair will probably chop and change routes like they always do.Jump to post
This reminds me of a law and order:svu episode that aired not too long ago, but that being TV, was completely sensational and the reason the rape came out was because it happened but the airline in question covered it up because a few senior pilots up to the board room was like a boys club and promo...Jump to post
Virgin have operated B744s BFS to MCO in the summer season in recent years. Also, cargo A300s which DHL operate from BFS are definitely in the "heavy" category. RAF A332s also visit occasionally AFAIK. True, forgot about the virgin summer flights, BFS is my local airport so d'oh on my par...Jump to post

I would say all of the Ireland to Britain flights fall into this category, good tailwind and an easyjet and ryanair flight to Liverpool from Belfast or Dublin will only take 35 minutes compared to a ferry and arduous drive.Jump to post
Great news all round. As a Belfast native I was worried about the prospect of job losses etcJump to post
Apparently the aircraft are coming from air India, the link below is in Dutch but google can translate.

I dunno, a plane that can fly with a viable payload direct from a STOL airport like lcy and make it to jfk would fall under the classification of trend setter to me.
And before anyone gets a bit snarky, yes the a318 has been doing it but that's with less payload and a fuel stop in snn.
Styles9002 - proportional representation is the purest form of democracy - so the political classes tell us - everyone has a vote and every one vote counts!

Love old plane concepts like this from the 60's, always makes me hark back to planes like the vfw 614, now everything is lean managed and streamlined and generic to a point.
Maybe an old engineer thought this is how we can keep templehof going?
Considering how many Super 80s AA has retired in recent years, they should have plenty of spare engines in Roswell should the need arise. They can probably limp along with retired aircraft's parts without worrying too much about an extended service agreement with P&W. You can have a spare but y...Jump to post

Germany's a tough market altogether with eurowings and Lufthansa, Easyjet are just scaling back, they've been losing money on the continent and maybe need to refocus on their primary market of the UK. They are doing well at Amsterdam though and Orly so maybe just fill the gaps in the eu that ryanair...Jump to post
Northern Ireland is small enough that it makes more sense to look at these airports as both serving the country (1.8-1.9 million), rather than just the fraction of the country defined as Belfast city or metro. A couple points of comparison... Hawaii (the big island) has slightly more land area, abo...Jump to post

Once all the planes are re-branded from the airport all through your package holiday all you will see is TUI, went to Rhodes last year booked through Thomson and once out there everything was TUI, coaches, reps etc, did get confusing though when I sat in a welcome meeting and it was all in German!

Both Belfast airports are the same, there's roads in front but they were bollarded off after the Glasgow incident and short stay drop off pick up points built about 40/50 metres from the terminal.Jump to post
Considering that the UK's security within airports is quite stringent, with the majority of passengers receiving full body scans, residue tests and strict on fluid allowances as well as the traditional X-Ray and pat down, I don't see the point, merica going crayJump to post
Reported Jet 2 basing a fourth aircraft, so bucket and spade routes and likely to be a Greek or Paphos service not served ex DUB.

I'm not an aeronautical engineer, I specialize in maritime mechanics but prefer planes over boats, hence im a total aviation nerd, but from what I can see all over this forum and in my general perception within the airline business is the need for a modern a310-300, something which has the legs to d...Jump to post
BA do not require ID for domestic flights at all! I've always been required to show id on BA domestic flights when checking in a bag. That is because you are checking in a bag.

I wonder how many passengers were on the flight, seems to be an a330-300 going to the rescue. Could just be wrong info on the interweb though.Jump to post
Apparantly Brussels Airlines are about to announce the withdrawal from the Belfast market. Passenger numbers have been low, while KLM are doing really well. That explains why they have zeroed out all availability for new bookings. I'm booked to use this flight in March and it's still available onli...Jump to post
