Indeed. I spent a bit of time living in East Berkshire and from where I lived LHR was within 25 minutes driving time, compared to 1 hour for LGW if the M25 was clear. For most people living in...

I expected others to increase their prices after the demise of Thomas Cook. It could be argued that some routes have been artificially cheap for some time due to supply exceeding demand.

Not strictly true. I flew with Ryanair to and from BCN back in 2017 and the airbridge was used for my arrival and for my departure a few days later. It took me by surprise as it was the first time...

Considering the short notice of the flight and the timings, average 83% LF on a Dash 8 is reasonable. If anything, it's proven there is a market that could be tapped into if slots become available...

Quoting myself because to prove a point, MANworker has picked up on something I heard over the weekend that three dates in December will see the A346 operate MAN-ATL.

The plan seems to change regularly. I know before the Thomas Cook collapse some dates were changed from A332 to B744 and it wouldn't surprise me if more dates have been upgauged, though from a quick...

I would argue the limited number of Upper seats is a problem with the 747 on the JFK and ATL route. I was made up last year when I booked MAN-JFK when it was initially allocated an A330 but changed...

I guess we'll see how things pan out in the coming months. I fully expected fare hikes in the immediate aftermath of Thomas Cook collapsing, though although I expect fares to drop it wouldn't...

I suspect they've also got their hands full with expanding to cover for the loss of Thomas Cook on other routes. It seemed to me the green light to lift the travel ban to Sharm-el-Sheikh came out of...

That's how airline booking systems work. I'm not passing judgement on whether it's right or not, but most airlines tend to hike prices if there's only a handful of seats left and particularly the...

Someone who can do a load check might be able to confirm, but part of that could be down to limited availability. Thomas Cook did operate MAN-BGI and used to carry cruise ship passengers, so it...

Free of the legacy Thomas Cook debts, it's a clean slate for these stores and the next 6 months will give them a chance to prove their viability. It'll be interesting to see what happens to the old...

You're not wrong. However, to not replace some (that's the keyword here, not all) of the capacity that has been lost would be a potential opportunity missed and I don't think anybody was calling for...

The prices are what they are due to the algorithms concerning supply and demand, even though some of the claims about profiteering are valid.

I've lost count how many times the Pan Am name has been revived for use by airlines and subsequently failed.
