Should American opt to run a significant A321neo operation from Philadelphia, I think PHL-BRU/EDI/BHX/KEF would make sense. The EDI spotters are convinced JFK-EDI is switching (or in addition )to PHL-EDI. Im sure PHL-EDI was tried once and scrapped. BHX always seems a bit of a dead duck on transatl...Jump to post
is it true that a 20 year old A319 had the same fuel burn as a 5 year old? I thought there had been incremental improvements in various aspects of engine build and aircraft build/component and weight over a 15 year period?Jump to post
Seems GLA Delta being downgraded for S19 to domestic 757 with no lieflat biz class. Thats a disappointment as its the best 757 biz class on the market (compare with UA/AA). Think some other routes get these too? Don't they also send 757s to GLA? UA, DL and AA all use the same exact B/E Diamond off-...Jump to post

I think there were multiple FI 757s on the ground in GLA during the last major Icelandic volcanic eruption . Credit to original photographer
as much as having a 4 class ex-SQ seating layout sounds great, I just wonder how long in 'pristine' condition it will last. Who is going to repair super expensive first class suites? Might be hard to source spares and there could be ductape eventually. I suppose on time it could be refitted to 2 cla...Jump to post
I presume no chance of aircraft upguages on any of the EDI UA or AA routes? Less likely on now single daily EWR given the pax shift to new IAD. AA JFK probably still not running anywhere near full (suspect DL outperforms) so doubt we'd see a up to an AA 763. Not sure they do a lot of small market in...Jump to post

Did some other UK ports not appear for a short time on their drop down destination list ie NCL, GLA and CWL ?
Have they superceded these with grander plans?
Are airlines not just going with stretched narrowbodies like A321 neos/LR exactly because there is no alternative?Jump to post

I feel a bit sorry for DY in this scenario. Yes I know no love lost in business but this is a really 'cheap' blow presumably with some forethought that share prices would be effected whether they are in financial trouble or not. Not sure what IAG gains out of it as they can do everything DY does and...Jump to post
