What if the aviation boom in the Gulf would one day implode? Some elements are similar to what happened to the dot-com industry in the 90's.

Let us not forget that aiviation contributes to only +/- 2.5 % of greenhouse gas emissions: indeed not to be neglected and certainly not an excuse for doing nothing, but let us please keep all in its correct dimensions!

A refreshing and very interesting viewpoint about taking familiy in the cockpit! Indeed it could be safer to have family of the flightcrew in the cockpit instead of the cabin.
This is a point to be taken to the (international) security authorities.

Main reason to choose Mauritius for the headquarters is the political stability of this country. This enables reasonable insurance rates, avoids "state" interventions (....) unwanted in a commercial environment and gives confidence to aircraft lessors. Just try to convince a lessor to put ...

This aircraft is most probably an ex-Sabena 737-200. European bought many -200' when they were phased out. Flew for about 25 years at Sabena; must be in its mid 30's now. Undestructible, those 732's!

As BruAir is mainly a regional carrier , the choice will be focussed on types such as the Embraers, but also the possibility of the Canadair C-Series still exists.

A re-engined MD80 does exist: the MD 90 that has high-bypass engines (V2500 I presume). SAS had some of them. Not so many have been build; this is probable linked to the take-over of MD by Boeing :shock:
