RE: Will There Be Global Discount Carriers?

I hate to destroy your illusions, but $ 500 RT US to EUrope <acronym title="Island Airlines (USA) and Eagle Air/Arnaflug (Iceland)">IS</acronym> cheap. Nobody can make money on that if every seat pays that little year round. The Ryanair business model won't work on intercont. These ops are too compl...

RE: Will There Be Global Discount Carriers?

I have not, and will never, call Sir Freddie a failure. I have the highest regards and much respect to this aviation pioneer. I do not need your defense and I am not defending myself, just because you put words in my mouth which I have not said. Fact is, LAKER and People Express are history. I know ...

RE: Will There Be Global Discount Carriers?

They exist already and are called Condor and LTU in Germany and Mytravel and Monarch in the UK or Corseair in France. Canada has a similar structure with Air Transat and such carriers are emerging in the Far East with Phuket Air for instance. They even quote prices like $ 99,00 from <acronym title="...

RE: LH A300's : Beginning To Age?

The same controversial discussion is going on in airliners.de and there is speculation about <acronym title="Lufthansa (Germany)">LH</acronym> buying the 787. With Condor having to replace their 767s + replacement of the A300 and growth, this would make a sizeable fleet of around 25-30 for starters ...

RE: Turbojet 707 Still In Service?

The German Luftwaffe does not fly 707s anymore. They sitched to A310s a couple of years ago and the 707s have all been sold. You may find 707s in the Middle East and Africa working as Freighters and just recently SAHA Airlines of Iran crashed (which was believed to be the last pax 707) on a landing ...

That Ethiopean 762 ditched and they had survivors although the plane overturned. It took place nearby a crowded beach and rescue was on hand quickly. It was not the Seychelles but rather the Comores, Capital City Moroni
