Just for me as a low budget tourist with (recently found and moved) family and friends in Brooklyn and Queens, EWR just seems like a pain in the behind. I'd rather fly into SWF and take a bus to Manhattan and make my way from there than have to deal with the clusterfuck of combined road/rail/whateve...Jump to post
Can't help but hope it's something we'd never expect. Like an EU (U)LCC jumping into either high capacity short haul or even medium haul. On short haul especially in the current market where upgauging in frequency is getting more and more prohibitive due to constrained airports. One can't stop dream...Jump to post
Anybody has any clue as of yet what the A320's layout will be? Cram in 2 extra rows and delete some seats around the overwing exits to have open space for exit just like the mid cabin doors on the A321N I guess?Jump to post
Pier D is partially evacuated at Schiphol. An arrest-team is on its way. Situation still developing. What is an "arrest-team"? Are ordinary police not allowed to make arrests? They sent a special squad of the Dienst Speciale Interventies (Special Interventions Unit), not just a regular po...Jump to post
Hello! I've been wondering given the development in airplanes and routes flown, if the current classification of flight durations shouldn't be amended. Usual classifications I've seen is the following (All times block times): 0-3 hours short haul 3-6 hours medium haul 6+ hours long haul. Since the A...Jump to post

Hey y'all! I haven't seen any commercials or whatever but it has come to my mind that Georgian Airways has expanded quite a bit apart from their KL/PS partnerships, offering direct flights to CGN and other places. Does anybody have some more insight? I love Georgia and I'd love to fly Georgian Airwa...Jump to post
For f***'* sake you're at work. You dress in your work uniform and don't slack off watching iPads during the boss's time. Is it really that hard?
Is it harsh to fire them over this? Yes, it is. Just some disciplining would've been enough (in my point of view). But well, here we are.
Serious question: Is there any EU law stopping Turkish, Pegasus, or Air Baltic from filling the gap? Well, given that Turkish and Pegasus aren't part of the ECAA, only gap they'll be able to fill is Italy-Turkey. AirBaltic as a Latvian airline and thus member of the ECAA is free to do whatever they...Jump to post
Had it once with Ryanair. My flight HHN-VLC had a hydraulic failure over southern France. Instead of pressing on we diverted to CRL because that's where Ryanair keeps a spare aircraft and probably a huge maintenance base, even though it was just as far as going on to VLC. Unfortunately my flight cre...Jump to post
An internal NS document states that there's plans towards changing the twice a day Thalys Amsterdam-Lille to Amsterdam-AMS-Rotterdam-Antwerp-Brussels-CDG-Marne la Vallee Chessy / Disney. Though not directly aviation related, it will bring some highly needed other fast travel options from NL to CDG i...Jump to post
Not sure about A319. Will most definitely be quicker than a 738. I have seen full Ryanair 738's be on the ground for only 20 minutes from standstill until pushback, but I've also seen instances where boarding the same full Ryanair 738 took about 50 minutes to board (although on MAD only from jetway,...Jump to post
I have only used CDG to transfer, and hated it. Luggage not making the connection, having to exit the sterile zone and having to reclear security again (intra-Schengen transfer). "Terminal 2" is a huge 6-terminal mess with atrocious walking time between the several (sub-)terminals and not ...Jump to post
WOW air subbed an A321Neo for an A330. Flight time was 8:40h westbound, 8:15 eastbound. Probably a one-off situation, I have taken a look and have only seen the A333 scheduled to LAX. I had no clue the A321neo could fly this far. Will this really be stretching it or could it be used it to fly even f...Jump to post
Oh haha, I also posted this but you were ahead of me. It's a shame to see them go, I really enjoyed flying them and the free 14 hour daytime layovers to explore the main island on my way to Mumbai and back. I was seriously considering going out of my way to fly this route again, but sadly this won't...Jump to post
Air Seychelles will be returning their A330's (to Etihad I assume?) to get out of long haul flying and return to domestic and regional only. This due to new influx of European carriers (British Airways, Air France, Edelweiss) rendering their 3x weekly Paris service unprofitable. In addition to Paris...Jump to post
[*]1) can we please for the love of all aviation gods stop reopening year old threads? Just link to an older similar thread in the opening post. 2) @F27500 and all other biased sceptics, we are in an economic upturn right now.

For whatever reason I prefer the left side. I only pick the right side if there's no left side window seat available. And on a widebody, sitting in the middle part is simply not an option for me. I always manage to find an available seat in the window portions (or I already prebook my seats if the f...Jump to post
Hello! I'm pretty sure this isn't the most intelligent question on here. But earlier in October I've had 4 flights with AeroMexico (2 long haul, 2 short). On half of those flights, flight attendants did not speak or refused to speak English. When I addressed them in Spanish, they weren't pretty resp...Jump to post
This Airbus VLA projection crap is getting tired. They admitted that they projected it to include ALL 400+ seat aircraft. Including higher density 777 (Air Canada slaveship 777 seating 458, anyone? And this projection being made in a time when practically every 777 was 9 abreast), A350, and even ult...Jump to post
Wasn't Wizzair granted traffic rights BUD-India a few years ago?
Would be interesting to see if they'll push even farther east than Kazakhstan once they receive the A321 NEO. BUD-DEL is only 38nm further than KEF-TLV. Might be pushing it, but not impossible.
AMS isn't slot constrained due to the runway situation, only on particularly windy days for which every once in a while a new east-west runway comes into discussion. It's capped at 500k movements due to noise regulations. It will be renegotiated for after 2020 and there seems to be room for expansio...Jump to post
HHN, MXP, TLS (Thanks FR for offering easy quick selfconnects for €50 less than a direct flight, if given direct flight actually exists).

If you're an Aussie or Kiwi I imagine after your 12th trip to Fiji, Bali, etc, you're ready for some new scenery and a new adventure. 77H On the subject of Bali (which i love) im surprised there is no seasonal Europe-Bali direct service?

LCC to Hawaii? No, Hawaii is an expensive destination compared to nearly every other possible destination, People who fly there won´t fancy a LCC, and people who fancy the LCC won´t be able to pay Hawaii. Apart from that most people I know who have been there have usually done Hawaii in combination...Jump to post
I think some late night TATL flights ex-Europe could be classified as red eyes (the new 05:30 LGW-JFK by Norwegian for example). But an EU-MEX flight definitely isn't. I'm booked on one myself. AMS 2225 - MEX 0400 (0300 when it's DST). It's 12:35h so that leaves enough time to actually fall asleep a...Jump to post
Threatens to strike would be my guess. Would love to be corrected if there's a more suitable option haha. Anyway, KL staff should stop whining about removing 1 staff member from the overstaffed A33x planes.

I'd rather be sitting on a wooden church bench for 2 hours going to some fun destination than actually sitting in church. Plus, it's still cheaper to fly FR than just hand over 10% of your income to the church, as some of them expect. So for me, bring on those light and uncomfortable seats. I'll be ...Jump to post
Air Seychelles (HM) is dropping Düsseldorf, effective september 8. Stated reasons are weaker than expected connections through partners (probably AB), and competition from other 1-stop options. Paris CDG will be going from 4 to 3 weekly, corresponding with lower off-season demand. It's a shame to se...Jump to post
How about starring a hub at AMS or EIN? Start challenging Skyteam monopolies such as AMS/EIN-ATL/NYC and other alliances' cheap routes as MIA and SFO bay area. Use the 787 to rotate between AMS/EIN and LGW to handle the huge NL-UK traffic, and to enable more airtime for the frames by optimizing sche...Jump to post

No, they wouldn't have changed it ever.
Of course they would've. Every company refreshes its livery/logo/whatever every once in a while, while still retaining its image, recognizability and corporate identity.
