Outgoing AF CEO cites tax burden difference of 500M euro/yr with LH

In an interview in Les Echos dated 15 May, Mr. Janaillac says (my translation): "The French state will have a role to play in enabling Air France to improve its competitiveness. In the current French fiscal and social context, which implies a difference in taxes and employee-benefit costs of ab...

Re: What's behind Finnair's success? Can OK learn from it?

Helsinki has two other benefits. 1 - it’s a wealthy country with a high propensity to fly 2 - the isolated, surrounded by sea from most neighbours location means it relies on air travel for even the shortest flights, which has resulted in a quality feeder network. I am sure you are right. From a bu...

Re: Emirates EK A380 utilization

To get an idea of how your calculations compare to reality, SQ's utilisation rate is of about 14.5 hours/day/frame, from insider source. You -- or anyone for that matter -- can readily calculate the utilization rate for the program above, for the week of 1 May. The total block times for the week di...

Re: Emirates EK A380 utilization

I wonder what might happen if you somehow adjusted your scheduling to accommodate longer turns in these cases? As I'm sure you realize, these are not actual assignments. They are just the theoretical minimum-slack assignments, to see what the absolute minimum number of frames is required, and then ...

Re: Emirates EK A380 utilization

I am surprised not to see any CDG flight, although I think there are multiple daily flights. Great catch, this was a very serious omission on my part. EK 71/72, 73/74, and 75/76 were indeed missing. I have now inserted them, along with the daily CMN rotation. I also re-checked that neither JED nor ...

Re: Emirates EK A380 utilization

Can you analyze frame rotation for one day? The averages that i computed are one-day averages. The calculation is based on a week's program because the program may be different on different days (but does repeat every week). In the case of EK, the handful of day-by-day changes was not a big deal, b...

Re: Emirates EK A380 utilization

The bigger picture, which we don't know is the trend, is the utilization going up or down. With the reduction in deliveries in 2017 I expect it may increase a little. In addition to comparisons in time, it may be useful to compare with other operators. No one has an operation that is anywhere near ...

We left ZRH with a ~25 minute delay, we had a very smooth cruise with an uneventful straightforward approach and landing, touching down in LAX at 16:35 (instead of the scheduled 16:20)....
