What is a damp-lease? Aircraft + flight crew only?

Yes
Don't think it's an official term and it are the air contractors and air explore aircraft that are damp leased

will the flydubai aircraft be repainted like the one for JAF, just tail and titles?

Re: Ryanair in 2014

I don't think there will be flights to STN,
someone told me that they have to pay some kind of fine if they fly from Belgium to STN.
apparently this has something to do with the Eurostar.
Does anyone have more info about this?
