Emirates Charter

We have a special charter tomorrow afternoon. Emirates will operate a A380 in tomorrow afternoon at 1355 from DXB. It’s due to depart on Wednesday at 1400 to MCO. Apparently will be taking Arsenal FC out for a preseason tour in Florida.
Currently showing as parking northside on stand 505.

I’ve read somewhere that it’s now possibly cancelled due to a number of the Arsenal football team testing positive for Covid?

Why does one football squad, and the usual hangers on require an A380 to cart them to Florida? I guess of course it's as much more to do with the association between Arsenal and Emirates Airline and the latter looking promote themselves in the southern US as it is capacity. Not exactly environmentally friendly though, eh?

The A380 just departed Stansted on time and is clearly heading back to the Middle East after the tour got cancelled.

Last week the team flew from Luton to Edinburgh on a Jota 146; chalk and cheese?

Ryanair to reopen a route to Trapani in Sicily, 2x weekly from 3 November. Route last flown about 10 years ago. This presumably replaces Comiso, another beach route in Sicily which was dropped last year

So looking on Twitter (FlyPOP) it looks like they are getting their first A330 painted in anticipation for its launch when restrictions allow.

Taken from Twitter. Looks like it’s happening. As simple as the livery is, I quite like it. Reminds me of the Go Fly adverts from the late 90’s early 00’s.

Wow, thanks for adding the pic, I actually love it and yes it reminds me of Go fly, can’t wait to see the interior.

New Airline & Route!

Tunisair start Tunis twice weekly Monday & Thursday from 28/03/22. Flights operated by A320 however having seen their A320 cabins on various YouTube reviews I’d give it a wide-berth. It really does look unpleasant.
