TG from ARN is pretty much full from mid-November to March ( my experience as a frequent traveller ), and after Song Kran (mid April) planes are less than half-full except for July-August when holiday season picks up traffic again. Moving OSL traffic to ARN during low season would make sense, it's a...Jump to post
The problem for abroad traveling swedes is that its currency have declined by a large fraction against its peers, making abroad traveling quite more expensive. Shutting Norwegian long distances from ARN, and moving even more SK long haul destinations to CPH. Expecting more non-US carriers to move aw...Jump to post
SAS already have codeshare with Air Baltic, an A220 operator. And what's your point? They also codeshare with Swiss and Egypair, both A220 operators. Not to mention AC a soon to be A220 operator. The cooperation between SAS and AirBaltic started long before the A220 even excisted. SAS owned a stake...Jump to post
I think we should think in terms of evolution of existing plane types. A carbon wing A320/A321 would not come as a surprise. A220-500 looks like it will be in-line for the future, if market wants it in big enough numbers. Many PIP's have been suggested (many of Lightsabre's PIP's are very likely for...Jump to post
The question is how will a light attack aircraft operate in a hostile environment ? In my view, loitering at high altitude - and drop smart bombs with laser designation from ground, or standoff weapons - outside of Manpads and light AAA range would be the way to go (not unsimlar to what heavy drones...Jump to post
It did nothing to help TG that many 787's were grounded for a long time due to RR engine problems.
Flew a 747 to ARN a month ago,in low season.
They could easily have used a 787 to cover that flight .
Sorry,link below, in previous post I made the editor ate the link up.

Drawing of the temperature of northern hemisphere during last 2000 years http://www.klimatupplysningen.se/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Graf-3.jpg It was about same temperature as viking age we have now, and it was much warmer in Greenland compared with now.

Do you have any source for what countries have 8-10%.? The problem with a CO2 tax on aviation fuel vs vehicle fuels is that it need to be spanned over a whole region (like USA or Europe, Asia) or else it will only create loopholes, and suboptimization. An example : My country set the same tax on avi...Jump to post
Air transport accounts for 2% of global man-made CO2 emissions. In 2017, civil aviation, as a whole, emitted around 859 million tonnes of CO2, which is roughly 2% of man-made carbon emissions. https://www.iata.org/pressroom/facts_figures/fact_sheets/Documents/fact-sheet-climate-change.pdf You can pr...Jump to post
This could end up like the film "the Terminal" for a banned passenger, if the the airline is the only carrier at transit airport, with no Visa at the transit country.Jump to post
It is likely climate change itself and the damage it may cause will hit aviation before climate change policy/regulation. Sweden is an exception when it comes to social and environmental awareness. Very few Americans will alter their plans with the idea it is helping a cause. Especially when many A...Jump to post
Imagine all 737MAX would have the AoA disagree warning and would automatically disable MCAS in the case. There would be no problems at all flying the planes. It is a problem of the documentation of MCAS, how it is programmed, the man to machine interface and how crews were not trained to identify a...Jump to post
