Listen, while I respect your opinion, it seems you harbor some negative feelings towards the LAN takeover of TAM. Not to be arrogant, but that is ancient history. Time to move on. No, I do not harbor any negative feelings towards the takeover. I even thought it would be a good thing, but LAN's mana...Jump to post
Just J/Y.h All these new JJ flights are made possible by the exodus of surplus 767s from LATAM's Chilean franchise that are finding their way to the Brazilian franchise. LATAM Chile is now an all 787 and A320 family operator on its pax services. All flights would have been possible with the 332 fle...Jump to post

Your assumption that the service will be daily is premature. The service will be 5x weekly if they follow the slots they were allocated.

This departure time out of GIG to DOH will not be popular. No Brazilian airline staff in their right mind would schedule a long-haul flight leaving GIG at 5:45 am. The road to GIG is not particularly safe in the middle of the night. That is simply not true. There are no reports of the road being pa...Jump to post

Perhaps GIG is the furthest point in South Latin America that they would have any slightest possibility to fly to and supposingly any aircrafts that can do GIG can also do GRU? And Rio probably also give audience a stronger feeling than GRU when we are talking about a PR project Even though GIG lie...Jump to post

Competition wise, the newspapers said that a full merger of AB & LH (group) will result in a 92% market share of the combined entity within Germany. That is significant. Nevertheless, I believe that the transaction should be analyzed from a slot standpoint only. Domestic flying in Germany is no...Jump to post

There are some cities that suffer from inferiority complex. Instead of recognizing the fact that the metropolitan area is named after another e people know the region because of it, they still struggle with it and make such mistakes like not naming the airport after the better known city. The airpor...Jump to post
Not a problem - earlier this year, AB applied for a 2nd AOC, called Air Berlin Aeronautics, with the intention of placing the wet-lease flying for EW under it. But it also opens the door to the creation of a "good" airline and a "bad" airline. So there's your other AOC already. ...Jump to post
Niki would fit perfectly into Condor, but could also oerate as a stand-alone. Forget about some Phoenex-from-the-ashes Swiss style. AB is done and gone. Wjatever routes LH nd U2 pick, the lower Leasing and Overhead costs will make the difference and the successor can only achieve that under the umb...Jump to post
I might be wrong, but from what I have been reading a dispute between Lufthansa and Easyjet has developed around the question of which company will take over Niki. Perhaps Easyjet wants Niki in order to accelerate its plans under the Austrian AOC, but Niki also seems to be the only entity that can b...Jump to post
When will Argentina reform its Byzantine regulations and proceedings?
One simple rule could spare everyone of these shenanigans. All route authorities should expire after 180 days of dormancy.
Considering how constrained TXL is, I assume that the slots over there also have value. They have no value. LHR is the only Airport where you can trade slots My comment was a reference to the reports that AB's slots were used as collateral to the KfW. Somebody mentioned that only the slots of DUS a...Jump to post
It was the same reason Air Berlin started as "Air Berlin USA". The carriers into Berlin back when the city was divided were only allowed to be flag carriers from the US, France, or the UK. As such, they kept their original country's branding. That could have been the case, but it was not....Jump to post
Air Berlin declares 'insolvency' in a peak summer month !! August sees the highest cash flow...... this clearly indicates its financial position = pretty desperate. Most airlines fold in February or March, at the end of a long winter........ when cash flow is at its lowest. Well, not when the insol...Jump to post
Insolvency transforms the whole situation. It allows the politicians to look past the antitrust laws.
There are a lot of arguments against a full takeover of Air Berlin by Lufthansa, but arguments against unemployment will probably defeat them, if Lufthansa shows interest.
It seems like CN has the European traveler in mind, rather than the Brazilian traveler outside of GIG & GRU, judging from the schedules. This change also seems a net gain for both cities in terms of seats offered, another indication that the worst is over in Brazil, at least, travel-wise. AT is...Jump to post

People are all so worried about the ownership restrictions... They are not so relevant. Most routes are to the US anyway.

TXL and SXF today: In 2016 32,9 million passengers were cleared thru the two existing Berlin airports. As you can see, these are 5,9 million more than the max capacity of BER standalone. Even if it is not the plan, I think the added terminal capacity of SXF+BER should always be considered, since ke...Jump to post

Uh, experts have said otherwise. It's located in a yuuuge forested area. Yes, exactly why it should be left to become part of it.

Dobrindt is just a disappointment. All he understands is dealing with bypass routes in Bavaria. BER is not too small for anything. It will be able to operate at overcapacity like TXL much smoother, so keeping TXL is just creating a problem for the difficult decisions that will become necessary for t...Jump to post
That's another cross-subsidized flight being flown from Northern Brazilian cities. It does not matter if this flight is successful or not. It can run empty for all they care.

How would replacing C, D, E with a mirror of Z and A help? Would that even be possible?
