Not quite sure if there are many automotive suppliers around PAD, but I know that some years ago Ford was looking for a corporate shuttle to Cologne and Kosice from London Southend (SEN). So maybe that's also a reason for SEN (not just Ford, but probably some other companies requiring a link to thi...Jump to post
But why Adria? Seems a bit random. I can’t imagine many people both in Paderborn and in SEN, VIE and ZRH thinking to book with them. Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen! Adria is a Lufthansa partner. I imagine those ZRH/VIE services will connect with Swiss/Austrian network, in addition to the ...Jump to post

Concerning safety, Turkey is just as safe as any other country. So it would be unjust to associate it with Turkey when these things also have happened in france, britain, etc, as kong as there is no direct threat. At this moment, Turkey is very peaceful and it has gone back to its old days. Ist SAW...Jump to post
QR is definitely seeing expansion as its core business to capture as many transits as possible accross the globe through DOH. Not sure where do they set the mark for profitability though.

Southern Europe could easily get a few new QR destinations:
Croatia: SPU, DBV
Italy: NAP, BLQ, BRI, CTA/PMO, CAG/OLB, TRN
Spain: ALC, BIO, IBZ/PMI
What is the reason for Pegasus Airlines not to serve Saudi Arabia from SAW? (specially since they serve UAE, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar).
It seems like a missing opportunity there; short flights and huge O&D and connecting traffic markets. TK has multiple daily flights to the Kingdom from Istanbul.

I always thought this was a crazy idea; SN being the only user of those Russian jets in Western Europe, particularly with all the issues between Russia and the EU at the moment. Finally common sense prevails, and they will need to fly Western-friendly planes.Jump to post
Isn't Cabin Crew a predominantly female profession? Is the goal to make women feel more included in one of the few areas that they are the large majority? Male VS female is increasingly understood as a social construction. Consequently, there is no need to make different uniforms. For instance, why...Jump to post
I don't think it will change anything, but this is a good promotion for Croatia. Most tourists in Croatia are from nearby countries like Germany, Austria, Italy or Eastern Europe in general.

It looks too gender stereotyped, like out of 1992. We are in 2018; they should design more gender-neutral uniforms. For what purpose? For inclusion and equality. In 2018 it is known that gender is a social construct. Airlines should be progressive as countries like Sweden: https://edition.cnn.com/2...Jump to post

MFM has also a small terminal with not much area to expansion (have you noticed how small Macau is in the first place?). It is more of a "city" style airport with quite a lot of buildings around. So really a low-cost hub like KEF is not the best way to use the limited assets of the airport.Jump to post

One other airport I find efficient is YYZ - both Canada and US immigrations and it works well even when I have my son and wife who don't have Global Entry. The lines are well handled for the traffic.

I am surprised no Chinese carrier has launched SZX-CDG. Paris used to be popular with Chinese tourists. Maybe has this changed after the attacks and crime there?
SZX will be soon connected in Europe to Brussels, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Vienna and Zurich. Yet no Paris.
it hasn't been mentioned - thank you! in my opinion, both cities are obvious destinations of considerable size and some demand currently missing on the global map of TK (especially RAK). are there any (bileteral) restrictions between TR and Morocco?

No surprise some posters here are jealous. Plymouth could not even maintain flights to London with PLH closed down, and Exeter is on its way of becoming the largest air and space hub in the galaxy.

There is quite a few service from London to LIN: LHR (Alitalia and BA), LCY (Alitalia and BA), LGW (easyJet) and STN (BA).
