yes, but the price of the Lufthansa flights is outrageous compared to Ryanair. So it’s going to be Schönefeld to Luton, EMA or MAN for me next year, all of which mean heading up to Berlin the night before!

If Ryanair are dropping MAN to FRA there must be a reason, either not making any money or maybe had a fallout with one of the airport ( not Manchester as they are still expanding )

If you are working in the state of Thuringia especially in the eastern areas crossing over the boarder to Prague may well give better fares and frequencies if you are on a strict budget !

Ooops an error has crept into my initial load-factor file for April and May. There was an extra TCX flight to JFK that I had not noticed and also I had missed a formula for YVR. I think I should say that this data is 'work in progress'

heard that the apron concrete on 110 is breaking up, TUI was stopped taxiing onto stand due metal reinforcing rods sticking out of the concrete!

Presumably Lauda would operate instead of Ryanair on Riga? Can’t see both airlines on the route.

It seems like a strange decision by Hainan not to change equipment on the route. The route can't be doing that bad as Hainan was thinking of starting a 3 x daily Guangzhou route not long ago. Checking through multiple dates later in the year, economy fares seemed quite cheap so yield could be quite low. Then again there's plenty of competition from other airlines as you can fly to Beijing indirect for £350 return on certain months later in autumn. Maybe Hainan knows something we don't. With the Virgin takeover of Flybe and possible Thomas Cook long haul in the future, it's not beyond the realms of possibility that Virgin could take on a Chinese route like Beijing with the opening of Daxing International. They already serve Shanghai from Heathrow. Does Virgin have any codeshares with Chinese Airlines?
I believe the PEK yields are not brilliant but sustainable.

CAN I think would be commercial suicide unless heavily subsidised. No real market, too close to HKG plus it would make CX rather unhappy.

As for the last question (may have been answered not seen the rest of the thread). Pretty sure CA operate a codeshare with VS on LHR-PEK.

Blimey - that sounds like a major defect.

Good job someone was on the ball whilst preparing the stand for the arrival.

I think Hainan should maybe leave Guangzhou well alone like you say. China Southern would be the best fit for Guangzhou offering splendid connectivity to the rest of China. I'd like to see Hainan offer a service a few days a week to their hub in Xian, but as FFman alluded to, non Chinese passengers have lost interest in their product. Xian - Beijing is a very popular Tourist route.

As has been said it's good to know that somebody was keeping their eyes open. I'm just slightly surprised that there has been no OAN or NOTAM issued to show that the stand is closed for repairs?

Can’t believe they’ve not repaired stand 110 from last week when a TUI was held off stand and stand changed due to the same issues. There’s 2/3 rods just off centre line and a big chunk of concrete missing further down the stand
