British Airways Gatwick

With the recent news coming out that British Airways had a major fume event during their descent into Paphos on October 19 2019, it seems as though British Airways has potentially held their A320s at Gatwick. Currently speaking, there is only one aircraft based at Gatwick (G-GATP) that has departed....

Closed all other london airport except LCY

And expand LCY as mega hub like Boris island

All UK destination as well as holland/ north France/ Belgium connected by maglev train (via Irish sea bridge/ second channel tunnel)


not enough space for LCY to expand - don't know if you're being sarcastic :)

Re: Aegean new livery

The Greek flag is blue and white, so using blue and white on the planes of Greece's largest airline is hardly strange or boring, though the shade of blue used in the past doesn't match the flag exactly. when you think of it the lighter shade of blue actually does match with the airline. Aegean itse...

Re: Lufthansa Catering Reductions in economy and premium economy

no, I stated only short-haul unless swiss believe a 7hr flight is short-haul haha SWISS has also recently reduced service - if you have booked economy light you will only get served a bottle of water and pay for a meal (only from GVA and short-haul flights) Are they really doing this on the JFK flig...

Re: Lufthansa Catering Reductions in economy and premium economy

Lufthansa is only 5 stars because of scamtrax - They have a first class section on their long hauls that is why they are five stars. Without their first class cabin, LH would just about become a 4 star airline Not sure how an airline that's rated 5 stars can offer this kind of service.... i flew LH ...

Re: Air France Studies Stretched Airbus "A220-500"

Judging that the NMA might not even get built (recent thread on airliners.net) it is certainly likely that Airbus will build a A220-500. 757s and 767s are soon out of the window, Boeing are looking to build an upgraded 767 with GEnx engines - surely Airbus will succeed as Airbus have had troubles wi...

Re: Future aircraft for LCY

well, water could be a problem so let's not say it's got to do nothing with the water. LCY is business-centred, it'll obviously only serve flights that are being operated by C Series, Embraer. LHR (and maybe LGW) seems to be the only airport that will get expanded as it has good links within the cit...

Have you ever seen a LCY approach or even a birds-eye view of the airports surrounding? It's simply impossible for LCY to have an expansion, it's surrounded by water and any widebodies departing will heavily disrupt the CBD of London (Canary Wharf)

Re: Boeing examines GEnX powered 767

Adding heavier engines just don't do the job for Boeing - the 737 was a perfect project, created the 737 max by adding bigger engines which ultimately resulted in two crashes, and a global grounding

Will Boeing learn? Can't they just start a new NMA project instead of adding the GE-Nx on the 767s?

Re: Alitalia bankruptcy and selling process discussion thread

The issue has been ongoing ever since I was a kid. I can't see Alitalia surviving, they need someone to invest in them. They have a fairly old fleet in their short-haul aircraft (compare it to Air Italy - B38M) The introduction of the 773's are good, but Alitalia seriously need someone like LH to he...
