All these negative Statements and fault-finder….why not thinking more positive that WOW AIR recognized their mistakes they made - late but seems not too late ? Now they are trying to consolidate their business on solid business model - so give them all the chances they Need. And I am sure they will ...Jump to post
I was not expecting that! I am into it. Is this an international bird or doing regional/domestic flights? As of right now it's announced that they will be used on flights to HNL. There may be some domestic or regional familiarity flights for training before the first HNL flights in May but I'm not ...Jump to post
TF-GAY just now is doing its 2. flight from KEF to DEL. https://www.flightradar24.com/WOW322/1ecd8d20
In Icelandic media I couldn't find any Information about the level of capacity at that flight - and the return flight. Anybody has some informations about that?
Just saw that yesterday they already used their A 321neo TF-DTR on this route and even this plane made a technical stop at YEG (I guess for refuelling). DTR will soon be back on her way to KEF...
Dead ones live longer…. ;) WOW Air again is just flying long range with A 321 TF-CAT. This is no "neo". In the past they sometimes used TF-SKY, A 321neo for this route and in most times he did it nonstop. So I'm curious if CAT can do it non-stop too…. 6,942 km = 4,3135 nm....more than 8 ho...Jump to post
You guys in SAN get the next LH A 340-600 today. D-AIHD just departed FRA to SAN, flight time is calculated with 11 h and 20 min, ETA 12:50 pm (hope it will fly nonstop this time and not make a stop-.over at LAS again)
I wonder whether IBERIA could fulfil the high security requirements so fast....did they reject the whole first and Business class passenger in favor for Mrs. Merkel and Mr. Scholz, the finance Minister and their staff, or are they both sitting in the middle of all other "normal" passengers...Jump to post

What is that for a kind of flight? New charter flight? Or is the plane chartered out? Currently WOW Air's "MOM" ( A 321 TF-MOM) is on the way to HAV.
LH used their 313 in their last operating Time only on very short but much frequented routes like HAM-FRA or TXL-FRA. As far as I know LH never flew TATL with their 313.Jump to post

I don't buy that WW is going under. I think they are doing the opposite, and what the almighty armchair CEO board of ANET always says is what carriers should do. They are reviewing their routes wisely and cutting those that aren't meeting expectations. They are adding some new endeavors , one of wh...Jump to post
But the main reason is the delay in delivery of their new ordered A330neo, first one now is scheduled to come by end of January 2019. So they need one of their existing A 333 to start their new India route, that’s the main cause in my guess why they close SFO route too during winter.Jump to post

IMO it is nothing more than a reaction of the expanding networks of WOW Air. Wow Air already introduced these two banks and as far as I heard they are successful with that.

Another aspect: which pilots are flying this bird? IMO they could fly at any other airline who is driving the A380, especially EK who chronically lack pilots, and must not fly for HiFly - I am nearly sure they earn less money and their working conditions are worse than those that have established ai...Jump to post
