When was the last time BA aircraft had the original Landor livery?

From what I know, BA started switching from the old Landor livery to those world tails in 1997. However, I do remember coming across several planes which still had Landor in 1999 or 2000. So I'm curious what the last year a BA plane still had Landor (not counting the retro 744 that is currently pain...

If the Lockerbie bombing never happened, would Pan Am have survived for a longer time?

I was recently reading up on Pan Am's history, and know that the airline was in dire financial straits in the 1980s. However, it was apparently becoming profitable again in 1988, when the Lockerbie bombing happened, and that the disaster was effectively the final nail in the coffin for the airline, ...

AMS and ZRH would likely never maintain India flights without connections.


Interesting, I would think ZRH would probably have a chance of sorts, as Switzerland is a popular destination for Indian tourists.

How would India - (mainland) Europe flights perform purely on O&D traffic?

I notice that a significant amount of passengers on flights to India from major European hubs such as AMS, FRA, and LHR are connecting from the US or Canada, and vice versa. Sometimes it even seems that the majority are connecting. This has me wondering about how O&D traffic between India and Eu...

Re: Did the Northwest DC-10 ever make it to its Asian network?

NW flew the DC-10 to BOM until the mid-2000s. I know that for a fact because I flew BOM-AMS on a DC-10 in January 2005. AMS-BOM transitionned to A333 September 30th, 2006: https://www.aviationpros.com/home/press-release/10434369/northwest-to-accelerate-retirement-of-dc10-aircraft Last DC-10 service...

Re: Rumour: BA A35K LHR-MEL Pilot Training

Melbourne was served for decades, and it wasn’t losing money when they cancelled the route, just that an Australia route uses at least 2.5 airframes to provide daily service and could be utilised better elsewhere. Perhaps the A350 via India or some other fifth freedom route. I must say, it’s the ri...

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - March 2020

Not sure if this is the right thread to ask this question, but one thing which I have been wondering about for years is the paucity of direct flights between India and Australia/New Zealand. Currently, AI has the only services between India and these two countries, from DEL to SYD and MEL. I recall ...

What would "visa invalidation" mean in this case?

Re: Air New Zealand Sells London Heathrow Airport Slot For $27 Million

I don’t understand why NZ sold a valuable asset such as LHR slots especially with the 3rd runway dead in the water. If they didn’t have plans to utilise the slots, lease them out a carrier. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk New Zealand to London isn’t an market worth competing on, far better to pu...

Emirates is interested in increasing its LHR flights.


Wow, even when it already has 6 daily flights, all on A380s? Not to mention 3 daily A380 flights to LGW? Never knew demand between LHR and DXB would be THAT massive.
