Re: LGG 06/02/2020

Roses from quito most likely National Airlines is famous for transporting this and that . Sometimes you better don't ask what their cargo is... ;) And they are a rare catch for a spotter. I was lucky to get this very same "bird" in AMS two years ago. https://s19.directupload.net/images/200206/temp/...

Re: Austrian Airlines in 2020

Austrian Airlines took delivery of one A320neo, serial 5278, on lease. That A320neo, it would have been very interesting news... ...if it were true. Unfortunately, it isn't: The aircraft with the Airbus serial 5278 is not a "neo", but an A320-214: delivered 27/09/2012 to Avianca Brasil, registered ...

Re: Flybmi ceases operations

Very sad for all people concerned. But not too surprising if you look at the figures they gave in the press release: 522.000 pax on 29.000 flights means an average of exactly 18 pax per flight ! Even if some of the non-profitable flights were paid for by their contractors (SN, LH, AF, Turkish,...) ...

I guess there will be some departures of governmental aircraft as well on 14/02 after the NATO meeting? If they arrived at EBBE, they might as well depart from there!

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

Herr "xxxxx" Spohr should take a deep breath and blend out his Herrenmenschen-attitude: at least Wizz Air, healthy and successful on the markets it serves, has for sure no interest in getting commanded by a bunch of ruthless and soulless technocrats like his kind.
