The UK prime minister wants to hold parliament elections this summer on june 8. This could change the whole BREXIT strategy and decision as people now realize what actual consequences BREXIT will have for them and for their UK jobs and incomes. It's a grim paradox that Wales, and especially North W...Jump to post
Easier said than done. It would cost Airbus billions to move the 2 sites. Not too mention where are they going to get the highly skilled workforce to make the wings?Jump to post
I got 2 suggestions.
Loganair. As a replacement for their 5 Saabs as they can't be young anymore..
Or Eastern Airways possibly operating them in conjunction with Flybe.
In any case, it is proven that the State of Qatar subsidises ISIS, which will be the impact in Qatar Airways from the EU or the US? Wouldn't some kind of sanctions be applied to Qatari-controlled companies? Interestingly they have an stake in IAG. Where is the proof that the State of Qatar subsidis...Jump to post
Whoa! press release: But post a loss for the 6 month period ending March 31, 2017 Total loss before tax after non-headline items was £236 million. http://mediacentre.easyjet.com/stories/10207 The A321neo talk is all very interesting for the AV geeks in us, but U2 making a loss is more attention-gra...Jump to post
There's also the European holiday market to consider. Airlines like Jet2 and Condor and Thomson use the 757. A MoM may provide them with replacements for their 757s without having to replace them with a 788 or larger. For an airline like Jet2 it might also give them the ability to branch out to Flor...Jump to post
According to this article (in Dutch) they're planning to start a base in Orly: https://www.luchtvaartnieuws.nl/nieuws/categorie/2/airlines/prijsvechter-level-neemt-air-france-op-de-korrel-in-parijs Also Rome and Dublin are mentioned as possible future bases.

Yes. It's just terrible. End of the world stuff. All these airlines adding routes, aircraft. Not one has been removed. But we know the rules: anything good, it's because we are still in. Anything bad, it's because we are leaving (ignoring the fact that we are still in EU). Spain grew 0.8%. Followin...Jump to post
Then explain why Cardiff Airport was up 11% on March 2016? Munich has always been a hard route for the airport to fill. Also with reference to KLM and AMS. Flybe pulled their CDG flight forward to the morning and many long haul connections now link up with that because their isn't a 8 hour wait in A...Jump to post
Where does it say they'll be opening FCO and CDG next year? The article doesn't say anything about them. It is really good that they are doing well and i'm wondering how long it will be until they expand to the UK and Germany? Why would level want to expand into the UK? The IAG group already have a...Jump to post
As the title says i was wondering if 787 9 and A350 900 and A330 200 aircraft are capable of taking off from a 2000m runway and then have the range for either DXB, DOH or AUH without having to stop for fuel on the way? The runway in question is at BRS.
Could be a possible future route for Norwegian as they have a UK and Argetinian AOC? Given Norwegian is coming up with all sorts of interesting routes lately, I would not rule it out. But until clear heads prevail on both sides of this conflict, the Argentinian AOC would do Norwegian no good. The i...Jump to post
Actually Argentina does not, in principle, prohibit flights to the islands to cross their continental airspace. In fact the weekly flight to Punta Arenas stops in Río Gallegos once a month and even when it doesn't, it crosses the airspace of continental Argentina. These flights are operated by LATA...Jump to post
Can't see Argentina relaxing the restrictions any time soon and neither can i see Chile stop the current flights as the relationship between the UK and Chile has always been generally pretty good. The airbridge will stay for now unless the government could get a civilian operator to do it? Could a 7...Jump to post
Complete guess but Flybe? It would give them a European regional carrier that could feed there network and Flybe itself does need investment to move forward and the Qatari government did mention before they were interested in investing in the UK.Jump to post
I'm curious at how in the world can an A350 and an A380 have the same cost per seat. There's gotta be more to the story here. Depends how you configure them. A high density A380 vs low density A350... Besides that, the A380 isnt exactly an inefficient aircraft. It is only a few years older than the...Jump to post
BRS really needs this, it has a lot more demand in the SW region that Cardiff airport. I always wondered why EK, QR, or EY don't fly a 787 from BRS. Most people from BRS have to travel to LHR in order to fly as BRS airport mainly has leisure destinations. Emirates don't have the aircraft. Etihad do...Jump to post
I can't see CWL being a narrow body especially if you take cargo into account. Everyday there is 2 lorry loads of air cargo that goes to LHR and MAN plus add on in 2019 Aston Martin starts production at St Athan and TVR starts this year in Ebbw Vale. Mostly likely it'll be a 787 8 at 4 weekly to sta...Jump to post

I wonder if CWL is a pre-cursor to a maintenance deal with investee IAG/BA...rotate frames through CWL for checks. In which case makes sense as a new route but don't expect multiple daily frequencies! Probably 4 weekly to start with. CWL has an excellent relationship with IAG through BAMC, Vueling ...Jump to post
It seems like their would be a market for it. After all, they will eventually need new planes for London City to New York. A more efficient 318neo could make a host of new flights to financial centers viable. LON-ORD, LON-MKE, LON-HKG, LON-SIN could come to fruition. A 757max is the other option fo...Jump to post

The 737 MAX for Monarch is an absurd vanity project carried over from the previous regime, they have no need to change for changes sake from a relatively Modern Airbus fleet, and one aircraft size does not fit all with the Monarch Model.

The British won't be able to afford to go anywhere after Brexit, so it's actually not really going to matter. We can just sit here and watch the rest of Europe having fun without us. I doubt very much that Europe will be having fun as they'll be in an economic crisis too. The EU and UK are economic...Jump to post
I'd say DUB. It might not be failing but Aer Lingus regional have definitely retrenched a bit by dropping LPL, CWL and DSA. Are you joking?

Others have commented on the position of Ryanair. However it should be noted that while the UK is not part of the Shenegen area neither is the Republic of Ireland. Both are, however, part of the Common Travel Area (CTA). Note here that while Switzerland is in the Shenegen Area it is not in the EU. ...Jump to post

As someone who flies long haul to the US a couple of times a year BA out of Heathrow never really attracts me. As an economy passenger I find there prices aren't much different to KLM and I always choose KLM/Delta as I find the service for both airlines is pretty good in economy.Jump to post
They could lease a lot of those aircraft out.Jump to post
From what I know of Titan they do a lot of work for Jet2, a lot of charters for tour operators and also they'll do ACMI work for scheduled airlines like they are doing for BA at the moment. I assume they are profitable but I don't really know much about that or their internal operations.Jump to post
Oh I see. So it's just a temporary base which will close upon the UK leaving the EU? It makes you wonder why they're bothering setting up a new base for just a couple of years. An expensive undertaking for a temporary "while the UK is still in the EU" base. It's pretty naïve to suggest th...Jump to post
