IBA eye-gouges on routes out of LHR once the competition leaves, LHR-GLA dropped frequency and prices bounced upwards once bmi gave it up, the consumer loses! Options like CDG, AMS, FRA, MUC at least have alliance competition, MAD and DUB are IAG stitch ups, in previous years they would have been c...Jump to post
Hello all, My friend found this boarding pass today hiding in a book in the library at work. I'm guessing it's 1980s/90s given the logo. Also, BA198 these days is from Heathrow to Mumbai - but this flight was from Gatwick. We'd love to find out where this flight was going - does anybody know? I've ...Jump to post
What are all those lines painted all over the runway? Since its closure in May 2014, Manston had been earmarked for [...] a possible lorry park during Operation Stack. Earlier this year the site was tested as a potential lorry park to be used in the event of post-Brexit congestion at the cross-Chan...Jump to post
Well I won't get into the free trade debate but to allay the fears of the OP there won't be any mass choppage of rain forest in Argentina, a latitude map can explain why, and also no mass relocation of factories. Argentina is no Vietnam or Pakistan or Central America on the wage scale, and add on t...Jump to post
AF's A380 network currently is 2 x daily JFK plus LAX, SFO, IAD, ABJ, MEX, PVG? I had heard that CDG-HKG bleeds cash for AF and the A380 made it worse, which is why it was downgauged to a 77W. Is this true? I think it's more likely due to the 77W being a much better hauler of freight. There's a rea...Jump to post
A380 hands-down best passenger experience in any class.
Best looking: 787-10.
You know what actually looks 'too aggressive'? This: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/U4_hwk8l0Zw/maxresdefault.jpg As for the design on the police cars in Laguna Beach, no, definitely not aggressive. Just not as easy to read as a simple, uniform in-fill of the lettering. It appears to be the preserve of 'the...Jump to post

I think they're preparing for a (needed) rebranding. Unlikely - it's already been confirmed that the A350s will be delivered in the existing Chatham Dockyard livery, with the tail design also on both sides of the winglets. And personally I'd disagree that a rebranding is required. It still looks fr...Jump to post
VCE when on 04R.
YTZ? It's practically right next door to the city centre.
AEP on 31.
Does the RAF operate a flight directly from the UK mainland to the Falklands by chance? What about a flight from London to Falkland islands? was there a flight ever? LHR-PSY: 7853mi as per gcmap.com The Falkland Islands are a British Overseas Territory, therefore not domestic, as explained here: ht...Jump to post

Japanese are crazy with the themed livery, and some airlines adopted a similar strategy eg. Frontier with different animals; Norwegian with different people and Jetblue's different patterns on the tails... but I agree having all planes with different tails is a bit too much haha.

Travelled this weekend for the first time on Ryanair's new slimline Zodiac seats. https://cdn-03.independent.ie/life/travel/article35994193.ece/a6d61/AUTOCROP/w300-1x5/ryanairseats.jpg https://cdn-03.independent.ie/life/travel/article35994194.ece/a9c5f/AUTOCROP/w300-1x5/ryanairseats.jpg Despite the ...Jump to post
This is estimated to cost passengers about $3 per sector sold. The more sectors on a PNR, the larger the chance of delays, esp when dealing with the Canadian winter climate, which is quite a bit more severe than the climate in virtually all of Europe, But who says common sense enters into any of th...Jump to post
The problem with DEL is that it has run out of runway capacity and a new runway is not scheduled to open until 2021. It will be a few more years before DEL breaks into the 100m club I just checked and DEL needs around 30 million extra passengers to get to 100. What is a realistic time period within...Jump to post
Remarkable that 2018 will see 2 airports with 100m pax each. Which airport will cross this mark next? IST, CGK, DEL, ICN, SIN are all contenders. Maybe Haneda... They have been opening that airport up more and more to foreign traffic. Also the 2020 olympics will add a nice spike to numbers. Impress...Jump to post
So I watched this review on youtube and while all seems fine with service and food what on earth is all that rattling going on? Of course i'd expect the usual bumps and rattles but my goodness this thing sounds like a 50 year old plane maintained in Columbia not Air France. Is this specific to the ...Jump to post
1000 seat configuration? No, maximum seat number limited to 873 by evacuation testing. https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press-releases/en/2006/03/a380-successfully-completes-evacuation-test.html Good to see a completely different, non-Euro White, livery emerge from the paint shop!Jump to post
I don't see it happening. Norwegian are burning through cash by the bonfire-load. IAG would not get clearance from competition regulators to purchase them as they are too dominant TATL. They would be better suited by maintaining pressure on Norwegian's yields and hoping that they collapse before an ...Jump to post
If LHR was a UK state owned asset I’d be with you. However, it isn’t. It’s owned by overseas sovereign wealth and pension funds. It therefore doesn’t behave like a UK state owned enterprise, it makes decisions in order to generate as much profit as possible to return value to shareholders (which is...Jump to post
