Re: Opinion: Top 5 saddest retirements caused by the virus

Any and all A340 retirements for me, I have flown all major types except the A340 (in any guise) and the A350, I figure I'll get to go on an A350 one day but time/opportunity is running out for the A340.

Re: G-XWBA - First A350 for British Airways

I think they're starting off on LHR-MAD? Correct but nothing has been filed in there timetable. Assuming they will run from July to Sep? Not July. Delivery until 26th July. Then a few days for maintenance and IFE fit. Then Chateauroux training for just crew. Then MAD and other Euro/Domestic runs. L...

Re: United Fleet/Network Thread - 2019

Because Delta's domestic operation in Atlanta is almost as big as United's entire domestic operation there is a much higher chance of turning a passenger on a small jet from TINYTOWN into a connecting domestic flight or an interntional flight. domestic + intern. = total (millions of air passengers ...

Re: IAG sign LOI for 200 B737 Max

Wow, well this came as a shock. The likely price reductions probably gave IAG incentive to place this LOI. This order gives me more reason to believe that IAG have their eyes/plan set on a big European aviation shake up. Personally, I think that Vueling will be merged with LEVEL and potentially BA ...

Re: IAG sign LOI for 200 B737 Max

Am I being silly in thinking.. These can’t go to BA at Heathrow as they can’t take containers? You are correct. Mainly Vueling and Level. Also BA at LGW.

Re: Airbus a330-900 460 seats

Another exit was rumoured I believe for the A330neo.

Also 194 seats on the A320neo is also above current limit by only 5. It's very possible they will re-certify for higher number or another exit, like the high capacity MAX 8 will have.

Interesting to see which way they go.
