MilleMiglia survives the Alitalia-SAI closure. You can still earn miles flying Air France, KLM and MEA, and some non-airline partners. SkyPriority will still work with those airlines if you have status with MilleMiglia. Also curious, the Alitalia logo is now gone from the Alitalia.com website, repl...Jump to post

Weren't they supposed to get rid of their A319 by transfering them to LH Cityline?
I still see they're flying a couple of them.
The E195 has a pretty close seat capacity.
Both their fleet and liveries need rationalizing it seems.

When i saw the revised logo being white instead of gold lettering i did ask them on Twitter if that meant a livery change and the response i got was a response like. A conspiracy theorist might take that like to be an affirmative but I will take it to mean you never know. So that's the closest form...Jump to post
I would imagine a rebranding exercise is the last thing on any airline's 'to do' list right now. Even airlines who started a repainting programme just before Covid have made very little progress. Agreed. But if they are to receive new 737 Max soon, we should find out. 757 are on their way out, and ...Jump to post
Seems like they just placed their logo ontop of the Air Iceland Connect livery Sure they did, but then why adopt the same colors on your corporate twitter account ? It looks like the corporate Twitter account by is celebrating LGBTQ+. The logo is probably in white so it is more visible against the ...Jump to post

Recently on Twitter I saw Icelandair changed their tail logo color to blue and white instead of blue and yellow. Then I saw this picture of the Q400 in revised livery after the integration of Flugfelag Islands. Is there a plan to adopt this livery for all FI's planes? Currently there are 3 different...Jump to post

Why would the NG need the MAX engines? The MAX accommodates the MAX engines, so there is no issue there. Of course the NG doesn't need the Max engines. I just wondered if the landing gear modification was only implemented for the Max, as even for the NG, especially the 739 we heard it was too low a...Jump to post
That's exactly what they did. The NG main gear is located 24.5cm outboard relative to the earlier models. So the NG is higher vs the ground than the classic? Interesting. Still nowhere near enough to accommodate the Max engines. Why would the NG need the MAX engines? The MAX accommodates the MAX en...Jump to post
But when designing the NG, with the need to fit bigger engines and airstairs being discontinued because of weight, why didn't Boeing lengthen a bit the main gear by moving it 15-20cm outboard of each wing. That's exactly what they did. The NG main gear is located 24.5cm outboard relative to the ear...Jump to post
The 737 having a too short landing gear keeps popping up. The first versions (732, 733, 734 and 735) had engines that were smaller in diameter, and the short landing gear allowed integrated airstairs which were popular at the time. But when designing the NG, with the need to fit bigger engines and a...Jump to post
When do you think we may see the first 789 repainted in LH livery? Not before last quarter. At the moment everybody is scrambling to get as much information and hands-on experience with the planes as possible, as a lot of things have to get startet. It would be a mayor hassle if you would take the ...Jump to post
Does anyone else feel that on the 772/W the AIRFRANCE titles should be brought more towards doors L/R1 rather than starting halfway between that and L/R2? Like on the 350 and 787. I agree with you. I think it's probably done so that the titles are fully visible when the jetway is attached to door L...Jump to post
Does anyone have updates on the testing and production?
when is FedEx due to receive its first plane?
Well, as much as I like the winged seahorse nicknamed "Shrimp" in French, having it in big instead of the Skyteam logo+at the plane door+on the engines+the winglets is too much. The Skyteam logo should have remained where it was. Nice having the bigger AF title though. Moving the AFKL logo...Jump to post
Hi, LH new livery has the LH crane on winglets of A320neo/21neo, A350, CRJ900 but strangely all repainted A330/A340 have fully white winglets. Does anybody know why that is ? I wonder if it has anything to do with the winglets not being really straight up on these planes, resulting on the logo looki...Jump to post
I would say the seven sisters would be AF, LH, KL, Swissair, SN , AZ and IB. That's the airlines that come to mind when thinking about big European airlines. Old travel agencies signs I remember usually displayed at least AF, LH, AZ and Swissair, sometimes alson the 3 others I mentionned. Strangely ...Jump to post

Comparatively with AF, BA or LH, EZY should be in a better position. It flies short and medium haul only, with many domestic flights or flights within the EU where borders reopened (until quarantines were reinstated). Also they rely less on business passengers. If EZY is hanging by a thread, then ho...Jump to post

Just checked for an upcoming flight, and noticed Zurich airport website no longer provides aircraft type and registration for flights.
When did that change?
Only AMS and FRA are still providing this info to the public. Or am I missing some.
Average load factor of 50% is not bad taking into account the fact that travellers can only be Europeans/Canadians returning home and students starting college abroad. On CDG-YUL sector on an A321neo with 2 flights per week that's about 200 people. AF and AC are there too. Somehow I'm still wonderin...Jump to post

What are your thoughts about it?
Hi all, On another famous airlines pictures site, there's a pic of a 738 registered TF-KEX with Icelandair titles. Flightradar24 tells me this plane flies to Scandinavia since the beginning of April. Was this lease planned to cover for the max? I bet FI is using this plane to Europe as the pax volum...Jump to post

Tarom has updated their livery as seen on one of their new ATR 72. They've adopted the current trend of QF, LH, EI, A3 and an oversized logo. I do like the silver details on the bird and circles. The beige part looks weird though, should be silver as well. https://twitter.com/airplusnews/status/1229...Jump to post

I saw on flightradar that AZ 77W EI-WLA flew FCO-AUH 3 weeks ago and hasn't flown since.
Did they remove it from service or is it there for maintenance ?
I found an article from January 2020 rumouring AZ might get rid of several A32X, 2 or 3 A330 and this 77W to cut costs.
UX has many domestic flights such as MAD-BCN or MAD-TFS using a widebody, I understand there's either a big touristic demand or cargo contract. But I was wondering about the reason why UX is using a widebody at least once a day on its MAD-AMS route (are the Netherlands such a popular destination fro...Jump to post
