jump seat use for overbooks, standbys and crew happens all the time, giving a bit more space for everyone and getting them home quickly without offloading seems reasonable. I dont get what all the fuss is about. Not perfect but not unsafe (everyone had a safe seat if needed and mobile 02) The main i...Jump to post

Slightly anxious at their expansion with old Embraears unless theyre a bit like old BA 744's and fully paid off and despite higher fuel costs have lower overall operating costs. Their operational limits to SYY must be marginal in their (often) bad weather. I expect once EDI EK starts to improve the ...Jump to post
The UK manager suggested there was upcoming 'significant' expansion from GLA, but that was almost a year ago and nothing came of it thus far...Jump to post
Cant see this coming to anything.
Some of their loads are dire so suspect there is a subsidised 'vanity' element to conponents of this airline.
Did any of the other UK route conversion upguages to A380 actually promote growth? With EDI going to daily in the summer and last month showing a decrease in growth, will be interesting to see how this pans out. I suspect the heady days of 95% load factors will be over. Even if the airbridges arent ...Jump to post
The taxiway was always suggested as having room for improvement so no need to be so dismissive.
The dog leg and out of bounds/decomissioned sections (remember Spanair and Emirates?!) were always planned to be ultimately realigned to allow significant better use of land and increase new apron space.
I would imagine Loganair know this inside out but I was sure I had read that ATRs have a narrower crosswind limit, which should make some of the rougher routes a bit more lively. Is that the case? The S340s are very cramped and dated inside despite recent tartan superficial refresh, so will be a far...Jump to post
I dont really buy that there was no spare 744 or 777 that couldnt be mustered with a standby crew for 3 days? why not cancel a JFK rotation (as they would easily do with a bit of snow). The PR dept must have known a kid packed Disney flight would have created huge publicity. I dont think even TOM or...Jump to post
how do we know all these direct PER-LHR pax are being syphoned off BA indirect? its more likely others losing eg other QF /EK routes. BA are apparently very happy with their current SYD routing.Jump to post

The gawd awful Com air South African BA Union 737-800 livery
The white variation is of course deliberate and just a phased livery update
I think PPC Holland (used to be IMC) made some really big corporate models (as well as the little onboard ones)Jump to post
I wonder why Air Canada Rouge started GLA after EDI rather than just expand there if its the bigger catch? The VFR historical links are literally a dying breed for Scotland /Canada links so im not buying that as the only ties. WestJet have investigated further routes at GLA and EDI but never any com...Jump to post
Flybe pretty scathing report on their relationship with EDI management 'appalling' Not the first time that concern has been raised.
Worrying when such a big UK customer offering potential expansion

interesting, especially for the more regional QR routes eg in UK. The oneworld card holders will drop QR like a stone and shift back to BA via LHR. A lot of usual QR bluster I would imagine...Jump to post

The proportion of 'outbound leisure' has been always higher from GLA. These are essentially charter-esque type flights filled with Virgin Holidays customers. They number of inbound scheduled passengers with connections etc has slowly increased over the years. Previously 747 facilities were better at...Jump to post
i dont think a small number of xmas charters will dictate the future fleet plans and so if they opted for 737-10 or A321 high capacity that neither could make over the Atlantic, im sure the xmas charters would just get quietly dropped. Their bulk income comes from high frequency pseudo charter Jet2 ...Jump to post
Surprised they didnt start from YYZ. Something more modern for those still suffering the ageing A310's! Home base is YUL, likely all the support for the new aircraft will be there until more arrive and they can distribute support across the other main bases YYZ & YVR. Not to mention YUL had 5 o...Jump to post
