I don't know much about ticketing, just stick to the classic Y (economy), C (business) and F (first class), all other letters are subclasses from cheap to expensive I guess, but if you have eg. K4 L4 M4 Y4 means that there are only 4 seats left in economy and not 16. That's not correct. Each letter...

Although it s one of the emptiest international airports in Europe, you should agree that it s also one of the most expensive as well as the slowest (in regard to turn-around times). For these reasons, not that many carriers are interested. Perhaps on a long run it might interest some long-haul car...

Euhm I heard from one of my colleages who used to work for the airport security that Aviapartner handworkers are overexploited, that the managements has no feelings for them. Actually sometimes they are so overused that the security people need to load the luggages on the aircraft in their place, a...

One injury will not jeopardize social relations between workers and management. I am sure that even union-people have brains (in contradiction to what some people believe) and that strikes are not happening after a one-night sleep. The ones who set up the strike don't have brains imho. The ones hur...

Today's accident resulted in a wrist fracture. That is no reason to organize such strike, so trust there's another reason for the unions to go on strike. Salary increase perhaps? Since the take over by 3i workers have been reporting an increase in pressure and stress... They just use little inciden...

First of all: the 'other handling company' is called Flightcare. And it is Flightcare (where I work) that will handle Easyjet flights. Every day we handle flights with short turnarounds (Vueling and some SN and VEX flights for example) that prove that we can do a rotation in 25 minutes. Be informed...

Shouldn't Delta concentrate om the fact that they are a very unhealthy airline for the moment? This seems like a very dangerous investment to me. Don't think this is dangerous at all... the particular destination might be, but their international expansion is a reaction to the changing environment ...

I am quite sure that, at a certain price, the flightcare personnel can be requested to wear the SN uniform, this would reduce flexibility (changing etc) so it would cost more.. Buying flightcare is not an option at all. I suppose the flightcare group from Spain wants to expand their activities in Eu...

yes indeed, and having the gulf airs is not a good thing...

As far as i know all 767-200 are out of, or will be put out of DL's fleet.
