RE: Biman Bangladesh Airlines To Melbourne?

Well I live in Melbourne and dont know many if any bangladeshi people, and they arent a huge ethnic group here. Greek, Italian and other European countries, plus China, Vietnam yes are large markets here, but in the last census it was a small number. If they are heading to Mel for a slice of the Eur...

Biman Bangladesh Airlines To Melbourne?

In what i have to say is strange news to me, today i heard that Biman Bangladesh Airlines will be flying to Melbourne. This information was passed onto me through a travel agency, but even I question why they would fly here. There is not a big Bangladeshi population at all, and it is a strange move....

RE: Gateways From Singapore To Australia

Whats wrong with MEL really as a hub for Tasmania. Tasmania is not big enough to get services and a short hop to MEL is not a bad thing. The terminal is good, and connections are fast, and given that the flight axis passes over MEL anyway why shouldnt it be the hub. I can understand ADE's problems w...

RE: Lauda/Austrian Increases KL Flights

Why do airlines continue to concentrate on SYD? 4 flights to SYD and 2 to MEL really isnt a wise move, a 3 / 3 split is better overall. Frm what i heard from a Lauda staffer at MEL airport last month, MEL flights are doing much better than SYD flights, something like a 80 % load factor to MEL and 69...

Virgin Blue s now despirately needed on MEL-SYD, as Impulse was the only airline that was driving drowth on the route. MEL's domestic express terminal was beginning to look very bare indeed, and it will be good to see Virgin become a major player on the route. Hopefully it can become a success, some...

Is there any substance to the rumor that MEL will be served by B747-400 service to MSP via Hawaii? I heard it the other day and have been trying to find out. KLM / Northwest have very limited reach into Australia, and since KLM withdrew services to a Malaysian code share, its non-existent. The reaso...

Charter Airlines In Australia

An idea that i am sure will work in Australia is charter airlines based in this country. The routes flown could include the Pacific, alot of Asian desinations that are not served from Australian airports and even onto Europe if the demand can be found. There was an idea a few years ago that an airli...

I am curious to whether any airline will try to start service out of Avalon, which is actually Geelongs airport. It has a long runway, but the terminal facilities are disgaceful. I know that Spirit had proposed services out of Avalon but that idea has gone away quite quickly. Foxport as Avalon is kn...

RE: Explane This QF At Napoli?

This QF flight is one of a series of charters that the airline operates in Europe this year. It is operated by a 747-400 ' longreach ', that usually sits on the ground at LHR until its departure later the that day, or the next day. So yes, it is a QF flight, on behalf of i think it is a cruise ship ...

There could be a slight probem though on trans-Tasman routes to NZ and that is profit. Because of the NZ government requiring Virgin to fly NZ domestic routes too, it could be too unprofitable of a move to make. It would be good to have new airlines everywhere, especially to get some new airlines in...
