Yes good in concept, but, largely a joke in practice. While 44 nations committed to the Yamoussoukro agreement way back in 1999, even those that have slowly ratified the agreement place roadblocks on the opening of markets. Simple things like lack of infrastructure, government control facility and t...Jump to post

Being fined for regularly having late arriving flights is clearly already suboptimal. JetBlue has been aware of this issue for awhile, now, and it hasn't gone away. So, they can either suck it up, pay the fines and not complain, or they can reschedule to avoid the fines. It's a simple business deci...Jump to post

Pretty simple. If you exclude Kosovo, the largest Albanian diaspora community is Italy. Also Italy is by far Albania's largest trade partner.Jump to post
ANA and JAL handle at many airports.
In addition, you can find listing among IATA Ground Handling Council members online.

I am sure there are other companies also not affiliated with IATA.

Here is view of airport. Seems plane ran off at the end
Four of the Mexican airline’s Sukhoi Superjet 100s -- out of a fleet of 22 -- have been grounded for at least five months because of engine maintenance delays. The Russian-made aircraft, which average just four years old, are now being cannibalized, an industry term for when a plane is slowly scrapp...Jump to post
Well, not as bad as Marriott which was caught listing Hong Kong and Macau as independent nations.
But still pretty amateurish move by Delta who certainly should know better. Poor form to incite such negative attention from both the Chinese public and government.
Certainly slow WTO process creates ongoing black cloud for BBD not only endangering orders but the companies finances.Jump to post
Good luck Canada. WTO is indeed hardly a place to get any quick resolution. Also interesting, all Canada is worried about is really the level of duties, not fact that US can place such duties.

Yet another landing gear issue on Dash-8 family
Must be a cruel joke.
An airline that was on verge on bankruptcy, risk of its airplanes being repossessed embarks on a costly long-haul adventure to a far away continent never served before
A bit none sense as the linked FG article even list other airlines having better performance.
DL only did well when only mainline was considered, but when overall network (which includes regionals) was considered is was lower on table.
Like explained much of the AF Airbii narrowbody fleet is not as old as many think. Also many of the oldest frames are leased, so virtually every remaining example is from mid-2000s through 2010s. Even brand new A320CEO frames arrived in the fleet during 2017.Jump to post
Company for several years said decision due no earlier than 2018. Bulk of replacements are not need till mid 2020s.

Well the TK 787 LOI stated deliveries were planned 2019-2023 so Boeing clearly has spots
https://centreforaviation.com/insights/ ... ght-372754
Remeber back in September after the 787 LOI TK stated it continued to look at A350s and some members like LAXIntl also here stated they would get the A350 as well.
Does not seem strange as there is growing number of operators that utilize both fleet types side by side, so TK can join the group.
I'm not sure how many categories the report had, but this shows combining categories basically results in a list of only the category small/medium airports, as to be expected because running a large airport is much more complex. Well not in the case of Asia-Pacific airports. Some of the top ones in...Jump to post
Thank you for posting tables. From European angle interesting to see the jump in performance of Vueling, becoming the best LCC in the world after so many struggles in 2015-2016 with its operation.

Happy New Year everyone! Look forward to another interesting year in Turkish aviation. Regarding Do&Co lets remember its a rather tiny company in the world of global inflight catering. Its total revenue was about EUR600mil in 2016 with EUR45mil profit. Since its in a 50/50 JV with Turkish it wou...Jump to post
I have seen TK advertise its Cuba flights in France, so its certainly likely they receive customers from all around Europe.
Does not seem strange they service Havana to me. Really no different than their service offerings to other popular beach markets like Maldives, Seychelles, and Phuket.
Brussels Airlines CEO says the airline must cut its cost by further 10-15 percent in the coming years in order to remain competitive against European low-cost rivals.

I am afraid the A380 has become an albatross. The sooner Airbus move away from it, the better.
