One can't help but think of the Berlin wall. Very true. The Berlin wall is an example of a strategically placed wall that was quite effective. The major difference, however, is that the Berlin wall was intended to keep people in rather than keeping people from entering. . the irony of using the Com...Jump to post

Is that really only GBP 2.2 million? That's like buying a country house or something!

Why so much panic over an 18 year old Saudi and why is she getting such priority asylum service? Beauty? Twitter? What about all the other asylum seekers?Jump to post
With the company being valued at less than $3m, I suspect the shareholders will go down the liquidation route. This feels like a ‘sure why not’ from Virgin and Stobart - precious little to lose at such a low valuation. I suspect the advisory bill will be more than the value of the company - and thos...Jump to post

Cologne would be building a brand from scratch for. norwegian, but as Eurowings heads to Düsseldorf with long haul, to replace Air Berlin, the market is wide open. The airport is about an hour from Frankfurt, by train and has a huge catchment area to take pax from.Jump to post
Breaking into the UK market is very difficult. Easy and Ryanair have such dominance of the Leisure market and have London fortress airports. Norwegian yield on same airport pairs vs EasyJet is starkly lower. With this problem, they don’t have the benefit of a strong home yield to make lower yield hu...Jump to post
The low yield nature of UK -> Central Europe allows for what would be otherwise considered anti social flying hours. Does Wizz get many self transits from FR and EZY? My wife was on a late running FR from LIS to HHN last week. Six pax were brought to the front of the aircraft so they could make thei...Jump to post
Like Opus Dei, the masons are seen as an elitist organisation linked to religion and oppression of other religions or religious belief.
Rotary and Lions are seen as more generous and open minded.

Rakesh Gangwal was former CEO of the Travelport subsidiary Worldspan.
Many airlines reduce their GDS cost exposire by pitting one against another like this. It’s called competition, and AI have lowered costs. At $4 per segment ++ , GDS costs are huge, especially for a lower yield carrier like AI.
Most forget that Jesus was born naked, and we should follow his decision to reject textiles.
As we know from historic movies such as the Life of Brian, mary frequently went naked.
For this reason our pastor insists on modest nudity in church and nudity at home.
Christmas Day is one of holiness in our household, so it is strictly naturist, following scripture as Jesus was born naked. Modesty is essential at church. I will choose a red speedo this year as it is 2018 after all. Our church is quite strict as to how one should be dressed as elders are present. ...Jump to post
Virgin has a simple Asia strategy - staying where they can make money. Ignore Bransons plans for non stop to Australia.

Get off your high horse. In a civilized society, people follow the bloody law. The law of India says a) "you absolutely cannot proselytize on a tourist visa" b) "you cannot proselytize wherever you please while on a tourist visa - you do it in the specific places where you're permitt...Jump to post

A side point BA has never been able to make any longhaul viable outside London. Unless IAG needs slots give flybe a wide berth! A little history would be beneficial here.

If IAG buy Flybe they will probably have to divest the Heathrow slots again! Of course IAG are looking at Flybe... sure why not look. Just like Virgin are looking at it.

I think a VS-led purchase of BE offers a number of opportunities for VS and its partners, DL, KL, AF, KE. 1 - It provides an opportunity to obtain a dominant position in the UK air market, by domestic point to point and also obtain further feeder traffic into its hubs (see points 2 and 3). 2 - It m...Jump to post
I have a sneeky feeling that BE are being duplicitous here. They are probably trying to get some Scottish route reallocated to Newquay.Jump to post
