I don't think the EU Competition would allow LH to buy up all valuable assets and slots that airBerlin has now. Monopoly is last thing EU wants in Germany. How large is easyjet or Ryanair operation in Germany? Germany is far from monopoly when combining AB and LH. Ryanair and Easyjet (and Wizz, Vue...Jump to post
Hoping they'll open up a base at Cardiff. They have 2 routes Faro and Tenerife at the moment. I could see a 1 aircraft base like Bournemouth working well with a couple of non based flights thrown in as well. If they don't base I'd hope they'd add some more routes Gran Canaria, Girona and Krakow wou...Jump to post
Unlikely to try Ukraine for summer 18 but possibly winter 18 or summer 19.
Israel seems like it's doing well for Ryanair so why not.
I do believe that they will close the Glasgow prestwick base and move all services to Glasgow international

Flyadeal first aircraft has been revealed.
Flyadeal will fly domestic routes and Hajj flights and is the new LCC of Saudia
Air India would be a great candidate for the 777-8 on these LAX, SFO, IAD, (IAH if they start) flights. I agree and I think the 777-8X will be great for them but whether they will be able to afford a few is beyond as they have loads of debt upwards of 3 to 5 billion I've heard which I'm not sure is...Jump to post

Don't much about the market in Minneapolis but how about Rome or Madrid as destinations in Europe.
Would they work?
If they are going to replace any short haul aircraft they will most likely be used. Lufthansa Group works by if an airline is doing really really well in its profit margin then it will get new aircraft like wise with Swiss with the new B77Ws,CS100/300 and A320neos that are soon to arrive.Other Airli...Jump to post
I do wonder about the 8 outstanding QF A380's, and their deferral into eternity rather than outright cancellation... Are QF's aircraft owned or leased? And if leased, how long? QF took its first A380 in 2008. What I'm getting at is: could QF eventually pull an SQ? In other words, substitute the fir...Jump to post

I don't see this working.
MME is in the middle of nowhere for a few miles and a train station that people need to sometimes use is about a mile away.I can see them dropping out in a year due to it being inefficient
BA is flying into a oneworld hub there. Why would DY want to fly into a hub that is controlled by AA and fed by BA when they could have a whole market to themselves. DY already flies into several other airlines' hubs and markets with a lot of competition on the same routes so I don't see your point...Jump to post

But maybe they won't be 777 but something smaller like A330 or B787. Let's see how this continues.
Indeed an overkill on the HEL-AMS route and HEL-EIN is unserved! Surprising how many airlines think they got the Netherlands covered by flying to AMS and forget that a large part of the country is outside the catchment area of AMS. EIN covers a lot of that plus parts of Belgium and Germany. PS BHX ...Jump to post
Not forgetting the slots free up by UA deferment. God, that topic is discussed to death.

Of course because you know, everything revolves around ORD and YYZ. Please face reality that the world does not revolve around DTW. Chicago and Toronto are much larger cities with more money than Detroit (even if Illinois is bankrupt). Chicagoland and GTA kick Detroits ass on a bad day. Accept the ...Jump to post
[threeid][/threeid] BGO-PVD is a heck of a long flight for a 737. Even if the route could survive economically year-round, I highly doubt the aircraft would have the legs to make it nonstop in the winter. Very interesting way to utilize the 737 though — no one would have even thought it possible jus...Jump to post

Surprised Level doesn't fly to New York, Boston or Washington but instead they go longer to LAX & OAK. WHY do Californians like Barcelona better then east coasters ?

It's worth mentioning that if you are on a package deal with Jet2holidays, you still get a free hold bag up to 22kg, which is very generous in my opinion. As far as I am aware, the vast majority of Jet2 passengers are on packages, so this fee shouldn't effect them. Only a few weeks ago I flew from ...Jump to post
