If I recall, last year Scotland raised their tax on alcohol by a huge amount to reduce consumption of alcoholic beverages. It's not a tax, it's Minimum Unit Pricing at 50 pence per unit of alcohol, and the profit goes directly to the retailer, not any government. It won't likely affect prices in pu...Jump to post
The current Scottish Government have been pontificating lately about the Climate Emergency that they've declared. They couldn't be seen to be owning an airport, (which was bought for political reasons), although it hasn't stopped them cutting rail improvements like the pruning of Borders, and EGIP, ...Jump to post

AA confirm that they refused to sell IG a spare part just because they are IG: https://viewfromthewing.boardingarea.com/2019/06/09/american-airlines-refuses-to-lend-part-to-air-italy-forces-35-hour-delay-for-spite/ No, not for spite, but “for upcoming scheduled maintenance” but that even if they di...Jump to post
No, why this question? Because if it's not affecting you, it's really none of your business how a commercial business deals with such requests. AA refuse to sell a spare part this mean they won't sign any contract with IG, not viceversa. So my ire goes to the right side. Yes, I hope to IG who haven...Jump to post
The lift and stairs in the arrivals that replaces the old escalator is a complete joke.
I've stopped flying from Edinburgh where possible, it's a horrible experience for the passenger these days.
If AA had a good reason to refuse to supply the spare part, I would like to know it. Why? Were you affected by this? Otherwise I think this decision was stupid at a level of business because AA had the opportunity to earn a fair price selling a spare part, and even more stupid at a more general lev...Jump to post
BA tends to send new aircraft to fight off competition more than anything else. You won't see new aircraft go to places like Abuja or Accra as there is simply no incentive to do that. A350 is the best example of that: YYZ - heavy competition from AC DXB - heavy competition from EK TLV - heavy compe...Jump to post
You can get a 30 years old jet with new paint and interior and a pax wouldn't know it was older than a 7 year old jet. The general public has no clue whats going on. :thumbsup: Look at the up-coming BA Club Suite. Going in the 772 before the 380. Conversely, there's older 772s with 3-4-3 in Y. Bett...Jump to post
Any thoughts about whether those 777-200 are OK enough in either J or Economy? Depends what you mean by OK. OK as in it has all the bells and whistles IFE? OK as in seat comfort? OK as in will get you there? I think you need to be more specific in what you mean as OK? For me, I choose on destinatio...Jump to post
This could kill flybe. Look at the number of social media posts conflating flybmi and flybe going bust tonight. Do they still do flying for Flybe? And if they do, what happens to that? As for that so called "expert", you're spot on. bmi Regional didn't operate for Flybe - their franchisee...Jump to post

3293 miles Daily Already served seasonally multiple times weekly in the summer on Air Canada Rouge 763. Dowguaging to the 7M8 would allow for daily year-round service on the route, and would become the only daily service between Scotland and Canada.

That's a great looking temporary shed for arrivals.
When does the new one open?
It will be a non stop flight. LATAM being the best intra-European biz class today says more about the sad state of Biz class in Europe than it says about LATAM (the latter's J is nothing to write home about). It compares favorably to Lufthansa's long-haul hard product in J, which is 2-3-2 on the Bo...Jump to post

DL has run the numbers on capital, maintenance, and fuel costs for the 757 fleet and they must be satisfied for now or the birds would be parked. I agree, but is this because there isn't a suitable replacement until now though? I guess there's a fine line between paid off but more expensive to oper...Jump to post
