On the contrary, I have yet to take a single on-time Wizzair flight this year so BA would be a rather good fit (Iberia is very punctual, which spoils the IAG joke somewhat...)

So why would you think BA would help with Wizzair flights being on time? as for Iberia being punctual you are having a laugh aren't you! Suggest you look at the departure times out of Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga etc. Not always there fault of course - ATC, weather etc just the same for Wizzair and any other airline for that matter.

Where are the facts in your link? Iberia beating Solaseed Air?


Did you ever work with Spanish handling agents? The only thing they excel in is bending the "facts" (ie. adding 5 mins to every arrival time to have the turnaround time start later and lie every departure 5-10 mins ealier to conceal the delays). Not a single movement time released by them is matching with ACARS data. Something tells me Iberia is no different.

Low-cost airline Wizz Air reported a 23.6% jump in passenger numbers on the year in June to 2.49m, while the load factor - which gauges how full the flights were - nudged up to 92.3% from 91.7%. On a rolling 12-month basis, passenger numbers were up 20.9% to 25.22m and the load factor increased to 90.5% from 88.4%.

Last month, Wizz opened its first UK base at London Luton airport. The company said at the time that it would base one of its new Airbus A320 aircraft at the airport, increasing operations to 42 routes from Luton, including three new services to Tel Aviv in Israel, Pristina in Kosovo and Kutaisi in Georgia.

It would be for Wizzair shareholders to decide whether to accept an offer from IAG, not its management.

Think you will find management are shareholders as well.

Also many takeover target shareholders will rely on what management says into whether to accept or reject an offer.
Simple reason is that if good management had delivered decent steady returns then trust already built up.

In addition if an offer made which undervalues the business then management will act to either to increase the bid or indicated no sale is going to happen................ a hostile takeover without management support is generally a complete disaster.

I'm with racedo on this - company directors generally have a legal duty on behalf of shareholders to extract the maximum price possible from a bidder

I've been looking at fares from Kutaisi to a few Wizz destinations including Luton. Fares in July and August look distinctly lower than I expected given the distances involved

Is Kutaisi perhaps proving to be a little disappointing to Wizz ?

People here haven't heard of Georgia, and if they have they've only heard of Tblisi. People in Georgia can now get to most other places in the EU without a visa...

Back in late June Wizz Air announced on their facebook page two new routes (NCE and GOT) and a 10th aircraft for Bucharest starting mid April 2018. Nothing mentioned so far on their website in the News section. Those new routes seems to be bookable though.

Strange that Sofia don't get any more aircraft but additional 22 weekly flights.

Never the less W6 keeps expanding at their main bases despite more competition from FR. Just Prague remains a small base compared to BUD, WAW, OTP, BRU

No and nor should you. The South East needs all the airport capacity it can get. If SEN can attract new carriers that is good for jobs, the local economy and the country. It would be good if you cheered it's efforts instead of poking fun.

Planespeaking.....Re airport capacity in the SE...mmmmm,refer to the LTN/STN threads perhaps,both airports planning/providing whole lots of extra capacity where the demand is being generated...ie no demand for SEN,which is an opportune development only, in my view...& YES I am an Essex geezer actually so no need to attempt to play every card you can find/think of....Good luck. Apologies to the Wizz thread for the slight drift...
