So they wanted to get away from green to break the notion that Aer Lingus was just for flying to Ireland. But didn't want lots of coloured paint on the aeroplane because that apparently says 'low cost'. And that was the result. That doesn't say low-cost, that says ULCC or seasonal-charter. Blue, se...Jump to post
I get a feeling it will be to see off the 747sJump to post
As per this tweet- https://twitter.com/jumbo747pilot/statu ... 6344714241
Not sure how true this is. Id love to see it though, BOAC, Landor, BEA being discussed.
Reckon airports like Southampton and exeter will have massively reduced services with the new Virgin Atlantic feeder. I see AMS, LHR and MAN to be a few times daily and only the most profitable domestic routes as well as public service routes to remainJump to post
Sorry what airline is "CN"?Jump to post
I would rather re-establish Northolt as a civil airport. Kick the military out of there, they can do their business at other places just as well. Build a satellite at NHT and connect it by some kind of rail/tube/People mover transport to LHR. Travelling time should be less than 10 minutes. Still be...Jump to post
Dear a.netters, First of all my best wishes for 2019 to all of you! Now, after having read quite a bit about the MoM project of Boeing, please let me write down some of my concerned toughts about it: [Economics] This is the main driver in our current market. We hardly have got any unserved market s...Jump to post
https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/oct/18/gatwick-plans-using-emergency-runway-to-increase-flight-capacity This has to be the biggest news for London Airports.The will effectively mean Gatwick will be a twin runway airport when/ if the emergency runway is reworked with the correct gap between...Jump to post
We have a MAN thread, the rest of the UK thread, however I thought a London airport thread, covering the London area would be an interesting one, especially with Brexit and its possible effect on aviation in the UK capital. I often find myself wanting to know more about LHR and LGW mainly and no rea...Jump to post
So I saw this thread and thought "oh it would be interesting to know how DL is finding their A350s" only to read two pages and found the usual Airbus vs Boeing, some waffle about other airlines, the value of underbelly cargo vs pax being left without an actual answer.
Yes or no?
I'm sure an A319 can do the mission. However, even if they can fly with no payload restrictions, there are only 128 seats. The 752s, when I've been a passenger, have had 150+ passengers. The route seems to have too much demand for 1 A319 but not nearly the demand for 2 A319s. Not a lot of seats, an...Jump to post
I just watched the video - they said 66,000ft it reached? I swear the concorde flew at 60,000ft. Am I missing something here?Jump to post
While this is still officially police operation its clear that military is also involved. Problem is not to find and follow these drones but UK clearly know that this is not done by couple geeks but someone with high knowledge and resources. Why this takes time? Because UK wants to get solid eviden...Jump to post
I know someone currently working for BA as staff at Gatwick, just rang him, he says the police have said that drones just keep popping up every hour and they dont want to shoot them just in case a bullet hits the drone and then deflects and hit someone or something. He also said every BA flight till...Jump to post
I am still not sure.Jump to post
I am surprised to see 3 toilets on this thingJump to post
This is a massive opportunity for an airline to come in build another area of their network, can see an US carrier being interested, having the Brazil-US market monopoly....Jump to post
The MAX wasnt a step to far, the MAX 10 was though. The design is pushed so far that its got a weird MLG just to make sure it doesnt crash on takeoff. I feel brain cells dying after reading this post. Yeah he really does not get why the landing gear was modified, does he. In hindsight i should have...Jump to post
The Airbus A320.5 might eat into A321 sales as well.Jump to post
The older generation were fooled by the negative marketing around the EU.Jump to post
I thought this might be a nice Idea for a thread (I hope). A thread about airline and aviation PR funnies. I will kick things off with this tweet I saw from Pedimont airlines: https://twitter.com/piedmontair/status/1067101385362153472 Does anyone have any funny PR stories from airlines and aviation ...Jump to post
What are the facilities like at Sal? Could it support an operation like the the ones being proposed by others here?Jump to post
I have said for a while that the UK doesnt have room for Flybe anymore. Any regional routes worth flying (profitable) can be done by Loganair/BMI/Stobart and BACF and that will be that. This is a regional airline with a fleet the size of Swiss or Austrian, they have to use them somewhere so they hav...Jump to post
Insane - I wonder what actually happened. It does seem like they had a few nose dive moments as well.Jump to post
What do you class as "around the world" - we already have Perth - Heathrow which is as close as it gets. If you mean flights around the world with multiple stops, its happened loads of times. UK tour operators sometimes do it, for a hefty price. I cant remember who, I am sure Monarch did it.Jump to post
I'm going to be a bit critical and anal, but there is something bothering about this thread, all the way from the OP's title to other comments. The man's name is not "Sully". It's Sullenberger, Mr. Sullenberger, Captain Sullenberger, or maybe Chesley Sullenberger. We aren't his buddy who ...Jump to post

Europe is smaller than USA and has 10x more airlines. The MOL prediction that Europe will just be Easyjet, Ryanair, Lufthansa group, IAG and Air france-KLM. Seriously, it will happen.

Don't worry. A hard Brexit will make all expansion needs obsolete... :box: Brexit will have very little impact on aviation or the UK economy generally. The EU need the UK a lot more than the UK need them. I hope that's a joke. It is, he is looking for a bite - just in case the arent though, no, not...Jump to post
