Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

it would be stupid to cancel BRU-CDG. However I agree BRU-AMS might be an expensive luxury. That is quite contradictory isn’t it? Would you be so kind to explain yourself? It's very simple, bru-ams which is (was) served by kl exclusively opens up the connectivity to Brussels city. However since the...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Call the military in. President Reagan did that during his tenure when faced with ATC striking. It was effective. I don't know if it's feasable in B. But one thing is sure, the strike must end now.

Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

I don't believe CDG-AMS flights will be cancelled soon. And it would be stupid to cancel BRU-CDG. Instead I plead since quite some time for a a second route BRU-ORY complementing BRU-CDG nicely. Same for LON, I believe there is room for LGW or LTN as well as LHR. Damn the greens. However I agree BRU...

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

Thank you to the crew of this site, plenty of figures and analysises to browse through. Except for LX, the other players of the group are heavily in the red, not a glorious Q1 this year worse than expected. However as the saying goes, no dark cloud can forever prevent the sun from shining, at least ...

Re: Airbus A330/A330neo news

I have a candid question regarding the A330-900 capability, maybe some knowledgeable member could help me with this question : Do you think the A339 (251t latest variant) can fly jnb-hkg non stop without a payload hit ? I would answer probably no and if so, what would you think the payload hit look ...

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

Lufthansa reports a poor Q1 result : -342 millions euros net loss against -39 millions previous year, nearly 10 times worse. LX on the other hand succeeds remaining North with 48,3 millions SF profit (a significant drop from last year though which were twice as much). I don't have the figures for OS...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

"Some pilots have said 15min of MCAS training is plenty, noting their familiarity with the 737 Max’s systems. Sources have also noted the complex logistics of running thousands of pilots through the few 737 Max simulators available" So a simple laptop training will do for the moment, “longer term, w...

And the EY-9W partnership now wrecked, it is now being replaced with EK/SG codesharing partnership. All good for EK opening further up the conveted dxb-india connectivity. https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/industry/transportation/airlines-/-aviation/spicejet-emirates-sign-mou-for-code-share-partn...

Norwegian Argentina wants to open Buenos Aires - Perth using Boeing 787 DREAMLINER (probably - 9).

Requests for the authorities in progress, route should be opened in September 2019.

Norwegian considers to extend route from Perth to Singapore as well.
I will believe it when I see it.

Bloomberg says -0.96% on 1 day performance. But it was raising this morning (same source) as I quoted.

Let's see how they perform this year and sort the mess out.

Re: Norwegian in 2019

For Q1 : 115 million dollar net loss. Profit margin -18%. Debt to assets 70%. It's better than Q4 2018. Roughly twice better. And let me remind you that Q2 as well as Q3 were slightly profitable. -- Compare with a successful legacy like SAS: Q1: 50 million dollar net loss. Profit margin -5%. Debt to...

Re: Norwegian in 2019

And despite the many upheavals the airline had to face this last 12 months the airline is posting positive 1Q results, a great achievement given the many challenges and the boldness that characterises their strategy. Kudos Norwegian, you are on the right track :-) https://airwaysmag.com/airlines/nor...

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...

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

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