Re: Brussels Airlines to operate two A340 aircraft for Eurowings

Hopefully LH will be able to oversee their complicated pilot situation. At least for the customer it stays simple, seeing only LH and EW, so from a marketing perspective there seems to be no problem. We have classic LH mainline. Then the A 340s operated by Cityline under LH brand. EW operated by AB...

Re: Delta to issue RFP for up to 150 Narrowbodies?

Like what other posters said, I think it's definitely not a sure thing yet. Delta is a buyer that is well-known to be price-sensitve. If Boeing offers a killer-price which Airbus is not willing to match, it will be a no brainer for DL. But with all the recent top-up orders for A321CEOs, the momentu...

Well sometimes you won't realize your neighbour is drunken until the plane is in the air, so I think a ban would be a better decision, but if they are already drunken during boarding I fully agree.

Anyway I cannot imagine that the duty free stores would like that.
