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...Jump to post
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, ...Jump to post

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.

Perhaps the A350 via India or some other fifth freedom route. I must say, it’s the ri...Jump to post

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 ...Jump to post

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.
