I doubt John, Fabrice, Tom nor Kiran will be losing any sleep over the 737-10's arrival. neutral to the contrary. The MAX10 is another product enhancement where Boeing has to do significant spending while airbus makes do with some minor tweaks. What kind of bill will doing the MAX7Mk2 ( straight 8 ...Jump to post
The arrival of 10 has eliminated the ability to price 321 higher. Probably, but that's somewhat irrelevant at this point; Boeing's tardiness at bringing the 737-10MAX to market has allowed Airbus to sell ~1100-1200 A321neos at a hefty premium. I doubt John, Fabrice, Tom nor Kiran will be losing any...Jump to post
Air New Zelaland's A320s have extensive modifications to their FMCG and an extra GPS to allow them to be RNP .1 compliant for the approach into Queenstown. I believe that their original A320s were some of the first A320s to be ETOPS120 certified? Speaking of which, Air New Zealand is the only airlin...Jump to post
Credit where credit is due; decent tweet concession from Trump.

Good. Ryanair treats their "employees" terribly with no respect whatsoever. I hope the strike hurts them. The airline industry is a people business - their biggest competitor knows this yet MOL seems steadfast in trying to to learn that.Jump to post
G-VMIK has had its registration applied.
60 pilots could also just cover increased flying of the existing fleet. Or less extreme rosters for their existing flight crew :duck: :scratchchin: possibly, but we aren't talking about an airline based in the Middle East.

It’s the effects of longer term fatigue - what’s happening is an erosion of motivation, concentration, morale, health, CRM - and ultimately the ability to adhere or apply SOPS. It’s like running your car at full throttle every day - eventually it will crack. While many airlines fly their pilots 85-...Jump to post
It always amazes me just how hopeless BA are when it comes to IROPS compared to other carriers like AF and Lufthansa.

We've heard this before! Let's hope it actually happens this time. Dec 3, 2012.

"Cargolux - Europe's largest cargo carrier - is hiring 60 pilots for its Luxembourg operations."

As for freighters, they managed to sell one of the B744Fs recently - it is now in CGK for maintenance and pre-delivery preparations for its new owner (not sure who bought it).

Meanwhile some of the junior second officers are literally hot bunking and/or sleeping on campbeds because their paycheck/housing allowance is so....humble.
Housing costs in HK are ridiculous and none seems to be doing anything about it (well, other than using it as an opportunity for speculation).
Can't say I'm surprised, they've been suggesting A380 loads are healthy for the past year or two. Nor am I, honestly. The problem with the A380 is that it is such a big jump in capacity over any other aircraft on the market. Thus some airlines will struggle to fill them. Looking at MH, they had all...Jump to post

That's a great example of disingenuous propaganda, but what would one expect to find from Pat Robertson's son?

I wonder if fatigue was an issue here. Would be very interesting to know how many hours the crew had flown in the previous weeks and months.

The fact that Sounds is investigating" bigger aircraft I would have thought deserves a mention, because even if this present (Beech 1900D's) move doesn't come to fruition it suggests the airline is sees a bigger role for itself.
