Re: The relationship between Lufthansa and Eurowings (and other "sister-airlines")

Well, the LCCs that stick around have something in common: they were independent carriers that were bought by legacies (Vueling, Transavia and to some extent, Germanwings...). I think that in a way they still operate as pretty much separate entities, is not like regional feeders that operate purely ...

Re: IAG sign LOI for 200 B737 Max

There is always availability. Look at all these conversion to XLR and suddenly there is at least a hundred slots until 2023 Even with conversions they might be still sold out until later in the production. Or maybe they just don’t want to depend on a single OEM for short haul, or the price was just...

Re: How much range is too much?

Interesting topic... I ask myself the same but with narrowbodies. NEOs and MAXs bring so much more range to the table, but at what point stops being efficient if operating only short/medium routes?

Re: IAG sign LOI for 200 B737 Max

Boeing has the 200 order hole in its production calendar due to Jet Airways departing the scene and Airbus has customers scurrying for slots due to the value that the A321XLR offers. Airbus simply might not be able to match schedule / price / performance. I think you are right. It’s not only a matt...

Re: IAG sign LOI for 200 B737 Max

I get how these dirt cheap plane going to their LCC like Level and Vueling. Cause they needed it. I mean, look at Ryanair. The MAX problems is the exact same opportunity for many airlines to get heavy discount, just like back in the day during 9/11. I think you’re right on the money. IAG’s structur...

Re: European LCC

Volotea was set by the same founders of Vueling so it was born to be sold to IAG. Private equity 101. Back in the day Vueling was an independent carrier born to compete with Clickair (Iberia's low-cost carrier). Iberia purchased Vueling and merge it with Clickair and in the process the original Vue...
