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

Any more on rumours of EDI being put up for sale?Jump to post
Also from the CAA stats the legacy airlines are holding together ok. EDI-JFK is down a bit. New york generally is down fairly significantly - JFK is down 12% last month. Norwegian loads should be based on what what seating capacity was originally proposed (unless it was at 100% full on restricted c...Jump to post
Has shades of the disastrous Airlines of Britain eras /UK expansion with MAN base, 146's, 1-11's and ATPs. That was without aggressive low cost competition and never lasted. This wont either and they'll retreat to previous core existing routes BHX next up by all accounts 5-6 x daily to MAN (they run...Jump to post

Yeah I meant 2018, I'm thinking of doing a trip to somewhere where I can guarantee a BA 747, anyone have any ideas of destinations?
As much as this is a supermodern and efficient aircraft and presumably lovely cabin, I have to say I dont think its a particularly nice looking aircraft with a weird uncomfortable looking nose. The only glamour is the sleek wingtips. Not for me but each to their own (and no I have no A over B allegi...Jump to post

mumblings that next A380 BA route will be LAS, winter only. Going from twice daily 744 to od A380. Be interesting to see if comes to fruition. Its the one destination that I certainly wouldnt be surprised over, especially if LAS can indeed accommodate. Big improvement from scabby old 744s. Shame it ...Jump to post
