The largest inbound tourist markets to Cyprus are UK and Russia - they are far bigger than even the 3rd country, Israel. Tourists from the UK and Russia are effectively banned from entering Cyprus.

What the new flights to ATH&TLV offer compared with PHL is non stop, no backtracking or minimal backtracking connection travel to Greece and Israel from NY, NJ, CT and RI. And just from those states the size of the market to these two countries is massive. Last year ATH had double daily flights ...Jump to post

I believe both Ryanair and Volotea have beaten them to the LCCs based in ATH and SKG punch. Their costs ain't lower and they are in very big financial trouble to go in a four way battle. Their seasonal flights from their home bases in Scandinavia seem to work well. Being the only LCC on those four r...Jump to post
Norwegian's JFK route was the big surprise for me last year. They launched flights and started selling tickets way too late in the season and with flights starting in the first week of July. Also their equipment was all over the place due to their 787 engine troubles and were using whatever leased f...Jump to post
A very large part of that almost 6.500 frame backlog belongs to lessors. I am sure Airbus, FR and leasing companies can work a deal where Lauda gets aircraft far sooner than 2025. Also some of the Asian carriers who (according to me at least) have overordered and just might not be able to take so ma...Jump to post

Willie Walsh would give Boeing the kick up the backside it needs. LOL, a guy who has drank so much of Boeing's kool-Aid that he ordered 200 MAXes after the grounding!

Some people really need to look "self respect" up in a dictionary.
Athens International Airport reported traffic results for 2019. Overall, in the year 2019, the Athens International Airport recorded an all-time high performance with 25.57 million passengers, surpassing previous year’s traffic by 1.4 million (+6%). This outcome was solely driven by the robust growt...Jump to post
Iran refusing to hand over the black boxes.... Oh boy.... My suspicions are leaning to this aircraft having been enacted upon by a malicious external force. Who do they hand them to?

And whats even more shocking airlines such as Emirates are operating to Tehran today.
With Trump talking about so many other possible targets for US attacks on Iran I'm surprised at how few people here mention a possible US missile being responsible. Everything is on the table at this time. Has the US either by missile or bomb hit any Iranian target? No. So what you are saying is th...Jump to post

Still, as mentioned upthread, "Comair" might be an option -- administrator might be going to the government from time to time, hat in hand, asking for emergency cash to keep lights on.

The main business for this route would be for the transportation of sensitive "goods" between the regimes of Venezuela, Syria and Iran.
Also for the smuggling of Venezuelan gold reserves to friendly nation for safekeeping purposes like they have done before with Turkey.

I can only imagine such a suggestion would mean they are expecting or planning on forcing Boeing to carry out a full re-certification of the aircraft as if it were a clean sheet design.
