What did Ryanair get from this that they couldn’t do themselves? Slots at TXL and DUS. They are effectively buying a part of Air Berlin in their ongoing effort to increase their presence at major airports, trying to get away from their classic "runway with a shed" type of airports out in ...Jump to post

So his reply Why let facts destroy a good narrative? was not for me but like speaking to President Trump. Why let facts destroy his propaganda talking. That’s how I see it. I may be wrong, of course.

I think the liberals are just shocked, because Trump says things no other president said before. He is totally free of old fashioned diplomacy and facts. Being "free of old fashioned diplomacy", as in backstabbing, disrespectful, short-sighted and incredibly egoistic. Kind of like him cla...Jump to post
Only true friends, that would support America, not false friends like Germany, who gladly sell their cars but refuse to buy American. They are enemies and should be treated as such.

This proposal is to capture the Chinese tourists. Eastern Europe has not reaped the benefits/ onslaught of Chinese tourism money currently being spread through Western Europe.

Lufthansa A320neo D-AINM named Freising was delivered yesterday Isn't that the older version of the new livery? I thought they enlarged the logo after the revision... And if so,... why?

How is the revised livery different from the original livery change? A lighter blue on the tail? Yes, but somehow I fail to identify this livery as the revised one... maybe it’s too early in the morning... or maybe the sun wasn’t shining when the video was taken... ;-) I'm 99% sure it's the revised...Jump to post

Might be a trick of the light, might be a camera angle issue, but I see a very slight move to the right in the moment before the impact - going through that video frame by frame, I can see a slight right deflection on Verstappens front tyres when Ricciardo locks up behind, and the impact is very ob...Jump to post
So far, all I see here is your lies. Well that's no surprise since you seem to dismiss anything as lying that's not completely in line with your pro Russian viewpoint.

Well, as an A330 lover I thing the RR engines style kills the design and makes the A330 looks "weaker" Sure abou that? The Trent700 certainly looks beefier on the aircraft, even though the diameter is slightly smaller than the GE CF6. In my opinion, the Trend700 is the only engine that do...Jump to post

I honestly think a lot of a-netters with a decent bit of graphic design knowledge can do much better livery jobs than these expensive design agencies airlines employ for no doubt huge fees.

Ultimately all of them will be painted, I was wondering why Queen was the first. There's way more estate on the 380 as well so logic doesn't apply much here. I was actually serious in my first reply... the 747 is regarded as the more beautiful and representative aircraft by Lufthansa. That's why th...Jump to post

I think we have to give it some time... The more i look at it, the more i like it and the more outdated the old livery looks.
