Look at Austrian Airlines for example. They no longer fly longhaul. Instead all those Austrian branded aircraft have little notices under the cockpit window stating "operated by Tyroleon Airlines". Thats what happens when you dont have scope clauses. Would you expect the union to sit idly...Jump to post
As far as this incident in Glasgow, they have a lot more than a 14 hour layover when going to Europe under normal circumstances. They don't normally land at 7am and then go again at 9pm. Just as an example, if they land at 7am with turn time of the plane the departure would be 8:30am. So really the...Jump to post
4 seems fine , there’s plenty of time , it’s not a short flight . Would expect 5 crew on the short haul to London though . I like the new economy seat look , esp the headrests but the cabin looks long and thin from the back , hopefully some mood lighting will help break it up It’s not obvious if th...Jump to post

So they took the suite vs semi suite discussion and basically just found a way to have a suite, semi suite, no suite at the same time. Nice to see there wont be the same compromise as SQ (sleeping diagonally when in lie fliat mode). Looking forward to flying this. Actually this seat does require yo...Jump to post
2300 hours is 11 PM. 12:00 AM (midnight) is 00:00 Aside from the interesting 23:05 DFW-DUB departure time, every other Europe flight aside from the last LHR flight leaves in the early-mid afternoon. Reason for the late departure ex DFW is due to lack of gate availability in DUB earlier in the day.Jump to post
I think we will see EY cancelling existing services here and there on a rotating basis i.e. their existing services only need to operate 80%(?) of the time to retain the slot, so they can cancel the EY10 and move pax onto EY 12 etc etc etc, I doubt we’ll actually see five services operating on a dai...Jump to post
One of the bigger issues with no BA to MSP (and to DTW) is getting the LHR slots for those flights. Maybe there are slots but none really suitable for an attractive schedule; Who would like a MSP/DTW 2230h arrival and 0030h departure to LHR? Yes, there`s BA at LGW, but unless BA wants to go to airf...Jump to post
Is it just me or have the new QF meals shrunk a lot since introduced a few years back?Jump to post
Having worked with EK, here's the story: - All turnarounds (well 99%) are double catered in Dubai i.e. they carry outbound and inbound catering. The odd exception is turnarounds where the a/c stayed on ground for more than 2-3 hours e.g. BKK-HKG, AKL (when it transited via AUS) etc. - Almost all lon...Jump to post

The marketing speech said about the livery/titles:
A lot color in the livery = low cost
A lot of white = full service
Too large/billboard = full cost
Too small = full service
Apparently this is 'in-between' , would have hated to see the 'small' titles then!
That's the tricky thing with the shamrock, it's hard to make it look contemporary. None of the examples in the video look particularly modern, and even look a bit dated already. Although I do think the last example (green shamrock on white tail) might have looked good as a silver shamrock (with simi...Jump to post

As with most US carriers, they have taken the 'uni-' of out uniform, should be called a 'poly-form' or something.... As a collection, it looks like it was designed for about five different airlines, which have totally unrelated branding and colour palettes.Jump to post
Oh my! Please lock thread, this has been discussed ad nauseum in another thread this very month!
How is the A350 performing for DL? https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1411729&p=21003733&hilit=delta+a350#p21003733
That toilet/galley configuration on the EI 321 LR is going to be an absolute nightmare. There is no way crew will be able to set up service for 165 odd pax in that tiny space with pax queueing up for the loo blocking everything at the same time. Not going to work on a long haul flight.

Interesting range ring for the A321XLR, currently under development by Airbus and being considered by EI: http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?R=4700nm%40DUB This would bring significantly more cities into consideration for Aer Lingus. What cities though ? Not sure if this is paper range or real world range ...Jump to post

Air Canada to upgauge YUL to ex-SQ 333 next summer! Quite a jump from the 7M8. https://twitter.com/Airlineroute/status/1057529725319593986?s=20 EI will not be over the moon about this I'm sure, quite a lot of capacity to YUL onboard for NS2019.

The timing of runway improvements coincides roughly with ramadan, during which to/from/within the Middle East traffic is significantly reduced. You'll notice some of the largest reductions are within the GCC.Jump to post
Colour choice makes sense when you think about it (the maroon at least!), no need to change interiors from QR.Jump to post
Airbus have the A330-900 at SNN at the moment doing circuit training if anyone interested is in the vicinity.

What I seem to have missed, is why are there changing the config in the first place? Why not keep it seven abreast? ... the new 77W are still coming with seven abreast, so it makes no sense! six abreast is dreadful use of 77L real estate....
Don't think it's a crewing issue...
