BVC can take the 763 (and did once a week last winter from ARN) but not the 787 (yet).

I believe the 763 will be going into BVC 5x per week this Winter, including 3x from Scandinavia.

From what I heard they are discussing options with unions, and will almost certainly be offered transfers. As happened with the Canaries and EDI base. Whether Madrid crew want to transfer to other...

So what do you suggest Norwegian do? Keep everyone employed on full time contracts when they have 25+ aircraft fewer than they planned? That makes great business sense.



Who said where I work?...

I think you’ve misunderstood my point. I’m tired of hearing every single negative rumour about Norwegian as some sort of indication that they’re about to collapse, seemingly to some fanfare from the...

Yawn. When you have 18 aircraft grounded (plus however many should’ve been delivered by now) and 50 engines that need replacing/inspecting, you need fewer crew.

Change the record.

It must be a great job if people are leaving these two airlines to join.



Thankfully in the real world, we have things called "rostering agreements", that prevent the company from adding an...

To be fair, when you die in your late 40s due to fatigue and stress related causes, I’m not sure you’ll be regarded as a “lucky one”. Your rosters are horrific.

At least it makes you feel...

Norwegian are cutting routes because they don’t have the aircraft due to the MAX and RR issues. So no

If the MH A380 and 3x 767s are all the CAA has currently on it's way/in place, then it's a pretty meagre effort thus far. The majority of the typical wet-lease operators are flat out covering Boeing...

Shame customers will only get half of their holiday in these 'pretty sweet' resorts, when easyJet cancels their flight and puts them on another one four days later.

Not that I agree with either side, it is quite funny to see how easy it is to wind up pilots. This website is a troll's paradise.

I’m not sure about last Winter, but currently at least three BA and two VS 787s are engineless at LHR. This farcical situation shows no signs of ending.

That’s never been the plan. At least 4 were always due to be around in S20. The 767s are staying for another 3-4 years at least.

Or that they’re cutting routes which don’t make money in the winter, like most other airlines in Europe?

Why is everything Norwegian do seen as a big deal on the Internet?

That’s why they’ve significantly reduced the winter flying program this year. No point operating routes with no winter demand like Seattle and Chicago in January using wet leased aircraft.

No doubt their usual season or two whilst finding slots at Heathrow. Interesting anyway, I would’ve thought they’d rather send Chengdu back to Gatwick and use the LHR slots for Shanghai.

Any company can sell out flights if they price them cheap enough. Ryanair have admitted they’ve had to bring down fares to lower than they’d like in order to compete.

If I sold £10 notes for £5,...

One of their 787s has apparently hit the blast fence at Gatwick on push back this morning. Not having much luck unfortunately.

Another 21 Easyjet flights into/out of Gatwick cancelled today, with the majority of those operating doing so with 2+ hour delays.

Another year, another summer of crew shortages and chaos.
