First response of LH. The demand the same discount as FR. LH CEO Spohr in the local news.

"If we need to bring EW to FRA, we will do it."
"LH will not pay more then FR" . That will save us 200-300 Mio. €/year"
Just came to my mind that basing Crews around FRA would be difficult for the Crews to pay the rents here with the "salary" FR pays them. Kelsterbach, Raunheim and Moerfelden and all the other places from where FRA can be reached by public Transport are all on the high end, commuting by ca...Jump to post

Just watched the video of a Hector and deserved the curses towards him for trying to record and add on to the chaos of an evacuation.

Well how ethnocentric, imperialistic and slightly racist of them. Because the crews are Thai they're automatically inferior? We better tell TG, or any foreign carrier who doesn't exclusively employ the nationalities we like that they can't fly here then. What BS, they have absolutely nothing to pro...Jump to post
Norwegian has said in their application to the DOT that they will only use U.S. and European crew for flights to the U.S. Maybe the unions just realized this? ;-) Nope, it's the question under what type of contact are those crews. A European contract with at least basic rights or a Singapore/Asian ...Jump to post

Where does it say the inspectors were in the jet bridge harassing the pilot in question?? Only in zekes post so far....
The inspectors in Australia know the rules, but they have many times in my experience failed to adhere to them, such as not conducting the tests in the designated room away from the public. Being harassed on the jetbridge, ramp, and in the aircraft flight deck in Australia. And two times for me it ...Jump to post
With certain widebody aircraft being available for peanuts, I wonder if we will see any increase in widebody private jets? An A340 could be bought, overhauled and fitted out for ~$20 million (please correct me if wrong), while a new G650 costs $65 million. Even with the increased operating costs, a...Jump to post
According to MoL FR had a market share of 5% and he is planning to increase this to 20% in 2020. Easyjet claims that they have 3% marketshare. WIZZ is an eastern Europe specialist and they are doing quite well on there Rouges out of Germany. Marketshare is also a question of demand. If the germans f...Jump to post
Well Norway has two large carriers for only a couple million people so I don't understand point there. Also foreign lcc penetration in Germany is very small compared with other countries. In regards to another point comparing Germany to a us state it's a very different thing. I mean the uk is tiny ...Jump to post
It looks like the entire Pegasus fleet is available for wetlease from October 1st. Didn't expect that it is that bad in Turkey.

Even with the terror threat for certain vacation spots in North Africa isn't it still easier/cheaper for Europeans to go to the Caribbean versus Hawaii? What's the market for London-Hawaii anyway? Also, I just find it hard to believe that HA has maxed out viable destinations in North America. Accor...Jump to post
Nope, nothing published yet. I assume marketing is still working on a strategy ;) I dont believe Emirates will make the interim or full report public. The accident concerning Flydubai at Rostov on Don was made public by MAKS the Russian Air Safety Agency. I may well be proved wrong at some stage.Wh...Jump to post

I do not know what the rules are for logging time at Emirates but for example at my airline most of the 777 pilots are flying close to their 900hrs limit per year. However for most of those pilots this is almost all long haul and they are spending almost half of that time either in the bunk for inf...Jump to post
According to EK both pilots had about 7000 hours each of flying experience. Based on the hours EK pilots have to do - how much years in experience is that. A approximate guess is also welcome. EK pilots are flying max. hours, around 900 a year. So we are talking about roughly 8 years of flying expe...Jump to post
