Loganair have been awarded the PSO for another year for Dundee to Stansted. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-tayside-central-50211168 Despite the news yesterday that the Dundee route will continue to Stansted, there are reports today that the route could be moved to London City as soon as nex...Jump to post
Is this the first ever conversion of A3XX to the A220? I would have imagined that it would complicated to pass an order from Airbus to Airbus Canada.Jump to post

The airline blame Boeing groudning and also 787 Dreamliner delays, another unhappy Boeing customer? Weren't they going to get their 787s from QR? If that were the case then I don't think "delays" would have been the real reason.. He mentions that the problem lies in the delivery delays in...Jump to post
You would rather be squeezed into a thirty year old, NINE abreast A310?? There's nothing big about a nine abreast A310.

Evening, Initially, I was really excited to see Loganair returning as a carrier operating its own routes, so it's encouraging to see Loganair expand. However, I am beginning to have concerns that they will eventually mirror, or follow the path of BMI Regional, such as opening weird routes, on the c...Jump to post

Loganair have confirmed that they are unaffected (aside from their codeshare agreement) by the news today:
https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/loga ... situation/
If they were spun off as an independent airline, it would be awesome if they relaunched the Caledonian Airways brand, especially for the long haul ops. The question is who owns the brand these days? (possibly MT themselves or IAG?)

Perhaps Airbus could use displaced A300 Belugas to ferry A220 fuselage sections and wings to Mobile?

Another boost for INV: KLM have yet again adjusted the AMS-INV schedules, boosting the frequency up to 20 weekly during July - August period, using 2 E190s and 1 737-700. The S19 schedule is now: May-July, Sept-Oct: 15 Weekly (mainly E190s) July-August: 20 Weekly Hard to think that just 3 years ago ...Jump to post
The rumour I heard was from people inside the airport and on various other threads so on that basis I think its a true rumour with a background to it. I'm afraid that still doesn't make it true as I mentioned before anyone and I mean anyone can start a rumour so on that basis'' it doesn't confirm a...Jump to post
Does anyone think that VS would improve the hard product of BE to match the VS brand, perhaps with VX style cabins on ERJs, and more included (baggage, refreshments) in the fare? The poor offering from BE was always a problem for the BE/T3 JV when competing with the full service Loganair, upgrading ...Jump to post

Airbus have recently had their trademark approved for an ACJ220

Where would this leave the A319neo? of course this has the benefit of Bombardier's experience in the CJ sector, but it removes yet another niche from the A319neo.
KL are to increase INV-AMS to 15 weekly for the whole of S19 (rather than 14 weekly in just July-August in S18), using mostly E190s and occasional E175s and 737-700s I wonder how much being exempt from APD is having an effect on traffic there? Perhaps a lot more folk are using INV for cheaper premi...Jump to post
I suppose as Iberia has a livery which could be applied to the rest of the group, if IAG wanted to they could align the livery whilst retaining the individual brands (and possibly revisiting flavours of old favourites....). Very crude ideas below. Although not part of the group, Finnair looks very ...Jump to post
It’s not based on a Trent 500 core at all. If you compare it to that you may as well compare it to T700 and 800s too.

The Embraer looks great in their new livery. Just wondering- have any of the Saab 2000s received the full new livery yet, or are they all still either white/without paint on the fuse or engines? If not will they ever get the full scheme? These are on leases that will expire soon, so I wouldn't expe...Jump to post
If it results in a rebranding of the airline, I think that Kestrel Airways or something like it would be a great name- as its is one of the best callsigns flying! It could also help with their image on their non-leisure long haul services from MAN, which they have reportedly considered adding J clas...Jump to post
Perhaps other Scottish destinations like ABZ could be served with A321neos ?Jump to post
Why not re-use the A310 name? Call them the A310-800 and A310-900 respectively. The family could be called A310X or A310C.Jump to post
My guess? A330NEO, and at the same time Thomas Cook renames all their flying divisions as Condor. Condor UK will be the new name of MT, and TCX units in other locations will follow. This will give huge extra impetus to the longhaul operation as Thomas Cook is still regarded as a holiday company. Co...Jump to post

Isn't Stobart Group a Flybe franchise? If it is, then a takeover would be pretty funny.

I thought I might spend a few minutes translating the LM livery on to both variants of the ATR.

Due to slot constrains at AMS and more profiable slot use to other destinations, KLM are reducing S18 frequencies to the Northern UK: - INV from 2x to 1x daily - except July + August 2x daily. - MME from 3x to 2x in July & August - NCL from 5x to 4x daily - EDI from 6x to 5x daily - except July...Jump to post
