Re: Jet Airways' financial situation, can they be saved ?

The state of the matter is well documented in the economictimes copy in attachment. It's real late in the day to try putting up a rescue plan, the liabilities are huge but who knows ? https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/industry/transportation/airlines-/-aviation/ousted-by-lenders-naresh-goyal-trie...

Jet Airways temporarily suspending their ops, is it definitive ?

9W are closer to bankruptcy than AZ. Probably imminent. However there is no discussion of 9W's financial turmoil on this site .. Surprising !

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi - Impact on Boeing 737 MAX

This is well explained here : 'Nowhere is it described the trim could be impossible to move if the Cut-Out switches were cut at the slightest miss-trim at the speeds flown. And there is no warning on when to move the Cut-Out switches, the checklist says “Cut, then trim manually.” This is not the who...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi - Impact on Boeing 737 MAX

Well .. Aren't they working on a fix since some months now ? So 3 months to go ... However the solution concept hopefully meets the approval of EASA and FAA before getting developped ?

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

It seems to be a major setback for the A339 this order... And a big win for the B789 instead ! Maybe I was not entirely expecting this :-)

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

Indeed however the business model (of sn vs ew) is not the same (that was my point) and it's recognised as such.

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

Everybody knows that SN is now a part of Eurowings Group and not LH group. Sn part of EW ? There is a major difference between the two, SN is a hub airline and (to my knowledge) EW is not. EW business model is that of any LCC, as such designed to operate O/D flights. Whenever a hub function is requ...

Re: Lufthansa is trying to sue passengers for skiplagging

An exemple ? In a restaurant you pay let's say 25 euro for a lunch dish at a given restaurant or you pay 20 euro for the same lunch dish at the same restaurant + dinner dish in another restaurant distant from the original one both meals included. The same day. Important to mention, you pay days in a...

Re: Lufthansa is trying to sue passengers for skiplagging

'If I buy a ticket, I agree with their general terms and conditions and I compromise to pay a FARE for the use of their TICKET.

Re: Airbus A380 news

I'm happy I could live this adventute throughout, as an aviation enthusiast I can only feel disappointed from this expected but still painful outcome. Of course...

Re: Lufthansa is trying to sue passengers for skiplagging

The real shame is that skiplagging cant be used for round trip. A no show on one flight shouldnt cancel the return flight. If its paid its paid. If you decide to do one leg on a donkey's back its your choice. :o :twisted: It's a real shame indeed. The airline should be sued for doing that, not the ...

Re: Lufthansa Is Trying To Sue Passengers For Skiplagging

If it's legal, there is obviously less point for airlines to offer discounted rates to tag-ons pax since p2p pax can enter that scheme also with a slight twist. In fact it's more than a "slight twist" since the luggage in the hold will be forwarded to the end destination as the ticket requests. So ...

Re: Lufthansa Is Trying To Sue Passengers For Skiplagging

It's common parctice I believe (otherwise what is skiplagging about ?). But is skiplagging legal, that's the question. If it's legal, there is obviously less point for airlines to offer discounted rates to tag-ons pax since p2p pax can enter that scheme also with a slight twist. The German judge imp...

Lufthansa is trying to sue passengers for skiplagging

Now this retains my attention ... On one hand, a Spanish court recently ruled that Iberia passengers could not be punished for skiplagging. On the other hand, the Berlin-Mitte court just pronounced a more ambiguous sentence .. giving LH sufficient grounds it seems to appeal the decision. My view is ...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Thank you André .. sorry for the link problem, just found out about it now.
Spohr repeats what is unfortunately already known. Each airline of the group must finance its equipment separately. No policy, no investment for sn except the routine thing.
