An airline usually doesn't tell this kind of stuff, as other airlines can undercut/outprice them, or nibble at the proffit margin. I don't know where the "they" comes from. would you mind sharing your source?Jump to post

I’m surprised Insel Air only has 1; I could’ve sworn they had a couple more of them.
After scrolling around various sites, I noticed that FlyBE/Easterns flights to the scottish isles have all but stopped except one stornoway flight. I heard the battle was heavy with Logonair, but it seems there is only one winner. Why did they (FlyBE) start this in the first place, they've gone from...Jump to post
Aaah, the synergy is working, finally Air France work ethics are being implemented in the Transavia/KLM-culture. Keep up the good work AF-KLM!
no this is not serious..
You cant. You have to exit the transit area, it's entry is in the Netherlands (so to say) and not in the International zone. So if you want to visit (don't know how long you have) you have to exit/pass the border, go the spotting terrace, then pass the security/border again, Re-Entering the transit-...Jump to post

Thank you. So at last, we will see the end of the bus rides from the Fokker Farm to the terminal and we'll get to use proper gates.... Don't get your hopes up too soon.

Where exactly will the A pier go? Is it where the Fokker (RIP) Farm is? If so, what does that mean for Cityhopper operations? Yup, on the fokker farm. Next to the b-pier.

The above reason is also why we have a H & M pier. As we have B-C-D-E-F-G-H-M now. And no A-I-J-K-L . The English (and Dutch) "j"sounds like a Dutch "e". The Dutch "i" sounds like a English "e" , I don't know why they skipped K & L though. Could be a g...Jump to post

I proceeded to the D gates, which are for non-schengen flights. Why? Are you sure? Norway and the Netherlands are both Schengen members - so no need for passport control...

There are a couple of "millennial" airlines that will probably grab this crown.

And if you use the Dutch part for this plan, the french unions will strike anyway because they feel all the investment is going only to the dutch part.

Do you really want one answer? It's not a fixed number, it's just not possible to say a standard number for a repaint. It depends on the plane, the delivery, the age of the planes, maintance schedules, fleet plans, the amount of money an airline is willing to invest, capacity of painting hangars etc...Jump to post
LHR-AMS Flight 1000
408 seats on a 77W? Good lord almighty that is an awfully dense configuration. Just for comparison, AA's 77Ws have 310 seats and are now going down to 304 seats as they get retrofitted with premium economy. It's just very Y-heavy. I wouldn't say they are dense, both offer 30-32 inches. Diffrence is...Jump to post
Both companies are profitable at the moment and I can with some certainty say recent fleet renewal has definitely helped. I do not see (even when shrinking) how a 737/A320 replacement order can be postponed past this year, given that all mayor competitors have newer, more efficient aircraft on orde...Jump to post
And one thing that might put the scales in a single order is the ability to defer planes to one airline instead of the other. You see that with the A350. some were planned to go to KLM, but the introduction/number of planes keeps getting defered. This in line with the crazy "equal growth" ...Jump to post

No way; Amsterdam is a pretty small city, it has the range of destinations because KLM are effective running it as a connecting hub.

Well the biggest one is ofcourse Tel Aviv with Middle Eastern / Gulf countries. The reason might be obvious, but it's a lot of big pairs not connected.

But KLM doesn't need the A321 or use an aircraft of that size and many of those airlines are replacing 757s because Boeing didn't do a replacement for. If you look at KLMs fleet they have roughly 18 737 700s which the MAX 7 can replace 27 738s which the MAX 8 can replace and 5 739s which they can r...Jump to post

Rubbish that last part.
The 744's where replaced by 777-300ERS mainly, exactly the same amount of passengers. The 787 replaced the combi's with the same capacity, but only two modern engines instead of 4 older ones.
It's getting overcrowded there. Growth is 15%+ yearly for years now. However, the airport will be near full next year and new Slots/flight limit negotiations are really really slow.

I believe that they would have the max with 199/200 seats. Allowing them to operate the aircraft with 4 FA's. A max-10 would need 5 FA's, so extra cost.
That's what I heard at least.
I wouldn't say it's that likely, they're doing well with one type, the upcost of the -10 would probably outweight it.
This statement is to vague to work. If you take LCC's in the discussion it's Ryanair hands down. Just look at the amount of bases in the UK or Italy and you catch the drift. Or some holiday cariers plastering Spain from a single airport (e.g. HV from AMS, or TUI/Thomas Cook from Manchester. Then you...Jump to post
