Re: Airlines Suspending Flights to and over entire or parts of Gulf Region Thread

All US & EU flights avoided Iran and Iraq airspace today. Northern tracks went through Central Asia with southern tracks through the Mediterranean, around Israel through the Arab peninsula (as per FR24). UA49 BOM-EWR proceeded to turn north after depart to take the northern track. Let's see the ...

Re: G-XWBA - First A350 for British Airways

With the first batch of A350 having 3-class without First they will probably fly to destinations currently served by similar cabin aircraft. With this what is the longest BA flight with a 3-class aircraft with no First? BKK or EZE I'd say. BLR is another long route and already shows A350 from 1 Jan...

Re: Jet Airways: reports cash running out

Jet's rating has been cut. How dare ICRA cut the rating based on false propaganda from Times group! 9W has so much cash it will pay all salaries to employees in a month, and probably clear all the debt too in a month! :roll: Naresh Goyal will make his planes run on the same snake oil that he has be...

Re: Jet Airways: reports cash running out

Do we throw Indian companies under the bus too readily ... It is all about Mumbai slots. Some airlines are eagerly waiting for 9W to go under so they can pick up those slots. in 2012-13 9W parked 10+ WBs at DEL T1. If I recall the Bangalore aviation blog has a picture of parked WBs. The joke "...

Re: Jet Airways: reports cash running out

If he keeps 26%, he can keep a board seat without threat of being voted off. Looks like Tata are pretty serious! Only an offer from IndiGo will keep NG at the company. Perhaps some equity as you suggested and Chairmanship, but he won't be allowed anywhere near running the business. IndiGo by this a...

Re: Norwegian survival questioned-Forbes

The question really is, does Norweigen have sufficient cash flow to sustain the losses until they can raise fares. Until CASK is below RASK, they are unsustainable. Period. https://www.norwegian.com/globalassets/ip/documents/about-us/company/investor-relations/reports-and-presentations/interim-repo...

Re: LH closing SJC

I think this is the start of a period where we will see full or part closure (reduced or seasonal service) on many such routes where yields and/or front end traffic might be weak. With oil where it is, there is certainly a cost pressure on thinner routes such as this. I'd also draw attention to the ...

Re: Rumour: Hainan Airlines interested in Alitalia

Hainan has an owner in HNA group, who are acting like Icelandic financiers on steroids. History has shown that buying distressed and loss making companies at a premium is a stupid growth strategy. I agree. HNA has also bought SR Technics, the MRO with the highest man hour cost in the world. That wi...

Re: Sukhoj Superjet 100 needs 8 manpower for pushback

I don't know if this applies to commercial aviation, but in the GA world, most mid and large size aircraft have their own set of towbars (mostly stored at the back, near the APU). In that case, when the MRO I work with handles an aircraft at out stations or in comes a unique aircraft type at home ba...

Re: Iran A380 Order in Doubt

Perhaps the "political" reasons Iran Air refers to is Emirates being unwilling to give up some of their delivery positions to the Iranians. Otherwise, the Iranians won't be getting any 380's for 5 plus years I believe one of the issues they are having with the A380 is the maintenance. The...
