Darwin Airline will be rebranded as ‘Adria Airways Switzerland’ from ‘Etihad Regional’ What a stupid name for an airline... :banghead: Darwin was ugly to begin with and to me always sounded so "un-intelligent" in the first place!

Interesting. In US English slang, "boost" is to steal ( http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=boost ). Not sure if this is the angle they're going for, but perhaps they want people to think they're getting such a good price it is a steal? Wrong, fake news, alternative facts. I've...Jump to post
If only WD had remained as a leisure-oriented charter airline, they'd probably be the size of TS nowadays. I share your nostalgia for WD, but had they stayed around they'd probably be no more/no better than what TS is... they would have had to morph into a leisure/LCC with 9-abreast seating (not th...Jump to post

Yes, it will probably have a shorter life span than the -8 or the -10, and highly likely will be less successful than the 'brilliant duo', but at the same time we should bear in mind that the -9 will be considerably cheaper than the -10, given the pretty "major" (for being a 737 that is......Jump to post
Smart move. As CEO of Scoot recently also stated, up to 8-hours flight time seems to be sweet spot for longhaul low-cost model.

ATR, a company with a turnover of 1.8 billion dollars last year, can't afford a $3-4 billions (it could be 5 billions per Leeham News) clean-sheet turboprop and never will. For Airbus, putting that money on a $25 million aircraft built at a low rate (for them) will never generate an interesting ROI...Jump to post
"Congrats" to UA that probably got a good deal on these, but for us pax, keep in mind that the 737 has about 7 inches less of cabin width compared with the A320 - so that means at least one inch less seat width in coach vs. the A320. Yes, the A320 is more comfortable...but that (maybe) 1 ...Jump to post

I can see FR wanting to push seating capacity as close as possible to 250 seats, so as to maximise the benefit from having to have a fifth crewmember.
I could easily see FR become on of the launch customers for the new 'big' variant.... I doubt FR would have any problem in filling many of those seats on so many of their routes.... Love the looks of the MAX10 in the renderings! On a side note, I have recently flown on my first FR 'new' -800 with Bo...Jump to post
To most travelers to Hawaii, the flight is a means to an end, those things are nice but people aren't paying extra for it and product differentiation for particular markets adds a lot of cost and complexity for a large network carrier. 77H[/quote] Sorry, I do beg to differ: it does make a differenc...Jump to post

Some individuals should not be given the great privilege of being issued with a passport that grants them international travel.
Actually, this is incorrect. The old algorithm auto-allocated each row left to right, from A to F. So, even if you checked in close to the departure date/time, chances were the two people would get to sit together. The new system allocates seats B and E first, so after the first people check-in, mo...Jump to post
I'm not sure easyjet is any better here. I recently booked 3 tickets GVA-ORY, 6 months in advance. During the reservation process, 90% of the seats were empty, and there was tons of empty half-rows.
