Long-haul was the only thing at OS that made any money and without it, LH Group can kiss VIE good-bye.Jump to post
Wow, I got type 2 diabetes just by reading the Boeing sugarcoating that's going on this thread.

https://www.seatmaestro.com/airplanes-seat-maps/corsair-boeing-b747-400/ I can't put my finger on why, but I am a bit surprised at how the First Class and Premium Economy cabins are set up, both being in the upper hump of the 747 (with regards to lav and galley placement) - as I thought people cros...Jump to post
The upfront investment for charging infrastructure of something the size of an A320 will be very significant. Everything in aviation needs "very significant" upfront investments, nothing new here. -Oil prices are too low to motivate a switch to electric. Yeah, for now. -What makes sense i...Jump to post
Why not keep the brand but merge the purchasing and similar departments of LH, LX, and OS? I am sure you get a better deal on aircrafts and jet fuel contracts if you negotiate on behalf of a huge organization instead of each airline separately. You mean exactly what they’re already doing? Because t...Jump to post
The aviation industry is doing a lot of promotion on the safety of air travel and lack of risk Covid-19 transmission for air passengers: https://www.iata.org/en/youandiata/travelers/health/ https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=582384906021127&ref=watch_permalink Do what degree are such claims...Jump to post
I feel bad for the person locked in the basement with you. I actually have the positive TSA numbers to back up my statement. Let’s see if that trend holds. I believe domestically it will I feel bad for whoever has to validate facile and one-dimensional takes like that on a daily basis. Some people ...Jump to post
Is why is it optimistic? look at TSA numbers. they are up up up week over week! Sounds like you haven't watched the news in a long time. Civil aviation worldwide is on life support for at least the next 18-24 months. “The news” cant even tell you what the weather will be like tomorrow without a per...Jump to post

So your original question was about a 787 and you are now using a 737-300 for your snarky comments? You are comparing apples to oranges. My question was about air filtration in general, and the example I gave was the 787 since that’s the first aircraft where those considerations taken into account ...Jump to post
Please provide a link that shows the infection transmission ON-BOARD the plane. There’s really not much to upgrade, as MMO said. Now the cabin airflow can’t compensate for face-to-face transmission by a person passed in the aisle or from a FA serving a drink. The WaPo released an article 7 hours ag...Jump to post
Which is why Austria should have nationalized OS. They were struggling during LH Group era so it's not like it can get much worse while being a government run business. Austrian was a mess when it was a national airline, badly managed, heavily loss making. Actually since they have been part of the ...Jump to post
Thanks, but I don’t see how restating basic facts adds anything to my question. About as much as your comment. To try to answer your question, the 787 and all current generation aircraft have HEPA filters which are either MERV ratings of 14 or 16, or the equivalent of a filter used in an OR. So, th...Jump to post
Hi everyone, first time poster here - Since the implications of COVID-19 are here to stay for a long time, I wanted to ask whether the air conditioning + air filter capabilities on non-bleed air aircraft such as the 787 are upgradeable. This would mean the use of more complex HEPA filters and/or a h...Jump to post
