According to the speaker of the Polish Aviation Group (PGL) the deal is off. PGL has informed Condor that it withdraws from the transaction.

Oil at $20/bbl! Given the present loads, perhaps it is viable to reinstate stored ERJ-145 and CRJ-200 instead of the A380/B747 ?Jump to post
Has LO cancelled/reduced some flights due to the virus? I mean besides Italy. WAW-MXP and VCE cancelled till April 3. WAW-PEK and PKX cancelled till April 25 BUD-ICN cancelled till Aprill 8 (WAW-ICN continuing) Flights to TLV reduced (altough I don't see how they can run any flights to TLV with the...Jump to post
Suspending US-Italy flights would be a good idea right now also even though most US-Italy flights are seasonal and aren't operating anyways, right? How many year round US-Italy flights are there? You do realize that the majority of the US-Italy traffic is one-stop connecting somewhere, e.g. FRA, MU...Jump to post
One has to wonder how do they manage to expand given the mounting losses and lousy load factors. Last year they dumped a lot of seats on new routes from Tallinn basically driving Nordica out of them, they must have a strong financial backing for such actions. Also, CS series are not exactly cheap ai...Jump to post

LOT buys Condor. So they'll be an Airbus customer as well now! Interesting... Not exactly LOT but the owner of LOT. There is already speculation in about a joint 20+10 order for wide-bodies. I wouldn't mind to see A350s at Condor and LOT. Perhaps partnering with Condor could also help LOT to get ou...Jump to post
Obviously I was being sarcastic, but also there are questions about the long term viability of their network. Actually, some of the "new" destinations outside of US and Canada are very successful. NRT (daily) and ICN (5/7) is flying with full C and Y+ cabins. A lot of connections from CEE...Jump to post
If you trim out the damp/wet/moist/ACMI leased frames (and exclude the ERJs as they're stored), you actually end up with: Q400 E170/175/190/195 737-3/4/5/800/MAX-8 787-8/9 Really not a very diverse fleet as it stands! Correct, except for the 737 lineup. Currently it is just 737-400/800/MAX8. The la...Jump to post
LOT starts 5x weekly WAW-OSR (Ostrava) from 30.03.2019. Many customers from Ostrava already use LOT from Katowice (1 hour driving time away) or Kraków (1h30min). I hope they offer open-jaw fares with departure/return from/to KTW complementary to the daily OSR flight (e.g. departure from OSR, return...Jump to post
Is there any plan to bring A220 aircraft back above FL300? I had a couple of flights on Swiss and they all cruised at FL260-290. According to FR24 those of Air Baltic are flying low as well.Jump to post

Actually, I'm curious, is the B737 from Blue Air now with LO? The plane even got a Polish registration. Very odd, they must have secured a very sweet lease on it. Yes, it is. Not sure if it stays after the MAX'es come back. LOT has now a very diverse B737 fleet: 12 groundeded B737-8 MAX, 5 of them ...Jump to post
LOT is once again leasing a EuroAtlantic 767 with 2-4-2 seating in economy - a very tight squeeze, and certainly won't give passengers a good impression of LOT if they unwittingly book a flight operated by this plane. Is this information confirmed? Until now they had A340-300's of Air Belgium and a...Jump to post
This summer of 2020 brings good news for KIX many airlines return their operations, after the Japanese recession the KIX airport has dramatically reduced its Long Haul operations, I hope that the new generation of aircraft can keep this service profitable.

Don't think this has been mentioned here, but interesting to note that the BUD-ICN (both outbound and return legs) are flown along a southern route, i.e. completely avoiding Russian airspace. This means a scheduled flight time of 12h45m on the return leg, whereas other flights following a similar r...Jump to post

The Embraer EJets are a step up from the Q400, with quieter operation, but otherwise there's little difference in cabin experience. All of these aircraft feel cramped compared to mainline 737s and A320-family aircraft. This doesn't have much to do with the subject of the regional props vs. jets but...Jump to post
I wonder how this will affect MAX certification in China. MAX certification there was already initially delayed. Now there might be an additional trust problem between both authorities I believe there should be a new certification process for the MAX after the fix is implemented, not only in China ...Jump to post
While painful, the 737 Max issues won't present a long term impact to the model's production backlog. Do you really believe that problems which presented themselves with two deadly crashes focusing full public attention will take a mere grounding of, say 123 days, similiar to the one of Dreamliner,...Jump to post

I hope the moderators will allow this silly question in the subject line. This is for the sake of asking more informed members of this forum about their technical expertise.

But if there should turn out to be a real, un-patchable, un-tweakable issue with MCAS, the only solution would be to re-do the weight distribution...which is really asking B to re-do the MAX.

That would have put him anywhere between Kennebunkport, Maine and Boston. I see, thanks for correcting me.

No, it does not. The transponder data is AMSL.
