Was the KLM route doing well before the airport closed? KLM operated AMS-MSE for just 13x months from April 2013 to April 2014 - 2x daily with Fokker 70 aircraft, until the airport closed all of a sudden. The airline carried over 48.000 passengers on the route or about 4.000 per month, which averag...Jump to post

Why is there a delay? There are no sanctions as of yet to prevent delivering these a/c, are they? I think Iran doesnt want to pay up front . Basically their argument is they could give Boeing $5Billion up front to pay for the planes, then get aload of sanctions for "reasons" and not get t...Jump to post
Id love some new SSJ100s in the Sky.Jump to post
Ryanair, people love to hate them, but they know what they are doing. I often see people going "pfftt Ryanair did this, I am never flying them again". Their ticket prices are so low, that if one person doesnt fly with them, another will take their space.Jump to post
It always makes me upset when this happens, I cannot imagine what the families are going through waiting for the inevitable confirmation of what they already know.
Sleep in peace.
This isnt a nice outcome - Classic company buying out another with no thoughts about the employees, history and culture of the business they are buying out. Almost seems pointless for Boeing to even need to do this.Jump to post
Here is the thing with Norwegian though, because they have several subsidiaries, how do we know which one is losing the money? Is Norwegian Air Shuttle? Norwegian Long Haul? Norwegian International or Norwegian UK? And if one goes under, do all of the rest?Jump to post
The 737 and A320 are rediculausly close on total orders, expecially considering the 737 is 20 years longer in service. The Boeing 737 has 14532 orders; and 9864 deliveries. The Airbus A320 has 14120 orders and 7979 deliveries. I don't see the use of me commenting on the usability of the A321NEO (AC...Jump to post
The A321 may be slightly more efficient than an A332 but it generates much less revenue. If they can fill a plane to capacity the A332 is still superior, and I would expect to see them forever on LAS/LAX/SAN etc. ah yes, but profit is all companies care about. Spend £100 to get £250 back on A321 is...Jump to post
I have to admit I am becoming very Anti-Boeing due to their recent antics. Very happy for Bombardier and Airbus and the US market in general. Cseries has a lot of US components, to be built in America alongside American A320/1s in Mobile. Airbus is becoming as American as it is Chinese and European,...Jump to post
Will they change it to "Proudly all American"?Jump to post
I cannot believe that boeing are not taking them to court for having an airliner in the US market with 300% tariffsJump to post
I wonder why they didnt go for the MAX? Boeing seems to be losing these battles recenty. I thought the Max would suit SAS over the NEO.Jump to post
The whole time I was like "dont be stupid just go around" but kudos to the pilots they nailed it in the end.Jump to post
It was technically going faster than the speed of sound, however the tailwind meant it never broke the sound barrier.Jump to post
I hate to be "that guy" but there are way too many factors to take into consideration for this. CSeries would win hands down if you counted it, however a 500km flight through hot and high countries would end up with different results than a colder area of the world, weather, runway length,...Jump to post
Being from the UK, do the US3 and main US airlines do package holidays like the european leisure airlines? For example TUI you can book flights, hotel, food and travel all under one price ? Americans don't necessarily want to do all of that in one package, so tour operators are less popular. Simple...Jump to post

What ridiculous fares? There are no ridiculous fares. A same day return fare costs €430 on JU and €600 on OS.

From reading various posts, I guess the general consensus is that Boeing doesn't "need" to but it wouldnt hurt them if they did. I think it would be a very wise move for boeing to start opening plants up around the world like Airbus. Strengthen some relationships, create new ones, play the...Jump to post
I don't think there is any advantage to Boeing in opening final assembly plants abroad. To my mind there are only two major Countries that have such a degree of nationalistic fever as to demand final assembly of aircraft of at all possible, The USA and France. Everyone else sees the wider picture o...Jump to post

With Airbus manufacturing planes in USA, China, France and Germany, giving them strong political relationships and better maintenance facilities to airlines and markets around the world, should boeing follow suit soon? Or is that too much of a "no go" for their reputation with the national...Jump to post
The A322 and A323 is the most logical step. A bigger frame, new wing and commonality as close to the A320/1 as possible should, on paper, be not too difficult.Jump to post
So 556 A320s Delivered this year?Jump to post
Fairwell Fokker. The Fokker 100/70s were very likeable planes and I bet many on here will hold fond memories of these birds with Austrian, KLM etc. I have a photo somewhere at Manchester where there was a BMI Fokker 70 , Austrian Fokker 100 and a KLM fokker 70 all taxing out in a row.Jump to post
