Not really. Tell me about the success in the other area. How many times have I heard people say that the best way to become a millionaire is to be a billionaire and start an airline. Midwest was successful for quite a long time. I believe their troubles started with labor issues and then came 9/11 ...Jump to post
What's that french J only airline doing these days?? Still operating 2 757s between ORY & EWR. Next March they should welcome in the fleet 2 A321 LR (from GECAS). They should keep in their fleet 1 757 for doing some J Charters. Flew with them couple of times. Great experience (good food, quick ...Jump to post
To add to what LAXintl said, there are a lot of users on this site who have misconceptions regarding slot usage in the US. The only FAA slot controlled airports are John F. Kennedy Intl (JFK), LaGuardia Airport (LGA), and Washington National (DCA). The FAA monitors and approves schedules at additio...Jump to post
You can learn about IATA WSG rules at: http://www.iata.org/policy/slots/Pages/slot-guidelines.aspx But in simplistic terms, slots are grandfathered so unless existing carrier returns or loses their historic slot there wont be any free ones during prime periods. Vacated slots are put in a pool with ...Jump to post

Slots are managed by the DOT/FAA, not by the airport and since 2015 largely follow the standard IATA WSG process via the seasonal slot conferences. Ok thanks. Can you let us know how this is working? How new airlines applies? What are their chances to get slots on very busy airports such as JFK? Ho...Jump to post
Even without the issue of FIS facilities, HPN and ISP really have runways that are too short for fully-loaded international flights.The runway at SWF has 9800 feet available for landing in the RWY 27 direction and 8800 feet for landing in the RWY 9 direction, with 11,800 feet available for takeoffs...Jump to post
The politics surrounding HPN are absolutely disgusting... mainly that surrounding the construction of, and expansion/lack thereof of the terminal. Doubt intl flights would ever be able to happen.

Hi everyone, I would like to know how JFK airport allocates its very rare slots? What is taken into consideration by JFK authority to give a slot to an airline : - Size of the aircfact?

Low cost carriers using tertiary airports is really misleading... While the cost of the flight and parking may be less, the cost (and effort) of getting to the airport is often much more.

If Norwegian uses preclearance at Dublin airport does the USA airport still need FIS in The USA??

I was just wondering who are the youngest private jet owners in the world? I guess Martin Garrix at 22 should be among the youngest people (though I don't exactly know what a/c he owns etc).

It's already running at maximum capacity, which isn't very much. There is no room for growth. . Artificial maximum capacity, I would more properly say. The airport is not actually congested. Indeed there is no room for growth only because when "Malpensa 2000" opened in 1998, it was also d...Jump to post
New door config, aka ACF (Airbus Cabin Flex). Thank you. I thought TAP's first A320N (CS-TVA) had that new cabin. ACF is only an option on the A321neo, and is mainly about the door configuration and not the cabin. Although removing door #2 influence the cabin layout Does this influence highly the w...Jump to post

If Norwegian could build up some other destinations within Europe at Orly, could a 3x weekly CAY-ORY flight work during the summer season? AF likely serves CAY daily as a PSO.

Airbus already increased the size of the ACTs for the LR - presumably to a more conformal shape. Hard to imagine there's scope to increase them further. The ACTs both on the ceo and neo seem to have a similar size, around 2,950 l, or 790 US gallon, per ACT. They have to fit the same hold and have t...Jump to post
1) One problem I do see, that was not raised here is the MTOW of 97 tonnes with two wheel bogies, which will probably not allow this aircraft to have the short runway performance that the 757 had. I was wondering if Airbus would re-activate the 4 wheel bogie for this option as they had for the earl...Jump to post

Would be interesting to know what range is XLR?
A 4th ACT would be doable on the existent A321LR but with the bulk load heavily loaded and some restriction on High dimension luggages = lot of headackes and bags restrictions on operations just to get an extra 400-500nm extra range from the LR range

What about MAN to the US East Coast in the winter? The A321neo could allow for more frequencies to BOS and JFK in winter (no need for an LR)...allowing for two A332s to be with DE in winter and reducing the need for an AirTanker A332, although MT could use higher MTOW A332s for areas like Seychelle...Jump to post
Thomas Cook (their UK & Scandinavian business) have plenty of A321s, no idea why they would want an LR though, a standard A321 has plenty of range to get from Northern Europe to the Canary Islands these days, I suspect the 757s were preferred over 737s for size as much as range. An A321LR won't...Jump to post
