Re: UK, Luton Airport turns 80 !

Its such an odd airport. Its layout is terrible, delays are always happening, dated buildings yet Easyjet and Wizzair make $$$ out of it and with 15million PAX a year its not doing badly considering its the "worst airport in the UK" for 5 years.

Re: Austrian´s old longhaul fleet

I honestly think replacing all of their longhaul fleet with 787-8 and 787-10s would be perfect for them. Its whether the investment is worth it for LH.
