Both like to shout out about the fact that a good portion of their products are UK sourced so I should imagine they'll just crack on. You can't move in LIDL for saltire and union (never England flags...

Does anyone know what Ryanair's plans are vis--vis pilot licencing? They're the worlds fifth largest airline with a quarter of their fleet based in the UK and have applied for a UK AOC so I'd like...

I've used them at least once a year for twenty years and they've never lost my bag once. The connection is easy and a dream since T5 came online. I'd take BA versus the train, the faffing about...

I'm sure T3 had posters at NCL advertising some link up with Emirates. If they could work out similar deals with MAN flights it could work.

I can't I'll miss Vueling, but anecdotally it seems easyJet put up a fight and still managed to fill seats. It's never that cheap neither when I've looked so perhaps there's scope to increase...

Bristol was pretty grim. Particularly at night when most of the based aircraft seem to land within a 2 hour window. It's a matter of waiting your turn in the queue. I don't fly in as much and it's...

It's meant to be very nice and fairly good value for the money. There's videos on YouTube including video trip reports and the TUI website used to have a good section on it with all the details. It's...

Northern Canada - Q400 doesn't seem to have any issues there.

It also seems to cope well in Norway, Iceland and Greenland too.

SATA operate them around the Azores and even sent it into...

Jersey/Guernsey/Exeter/Newquay get exposure to some fairly awful weather. flyBE have experience operating into LCY with its steep approach, shortish runway and windshear. I'd say the Q400 would...

I could only see the Q400 on SYY/LSI/KOI to the central belt. It's too big for all of the other locations to make money on.

flyBE should have access to lots of sales data so will be well placed...

Yeah it was a few years back as a W patten via GLA before they had a base there. But it just fizzled out and no more was said about it. I think the 738 is too much capacity. A Q400 is similar to the...

I think people have a very romanticised view of Loganair. I don't share it. Their six month performance may have improved but it's going to take more than painting tartan on the tail and emblazoning...

It was here last night. It's been here on a few occasions now. Seemed to do circuits before going back to Dublin. A smart looking aircraft.

It isn't much on paper and I thought 'what are all of those people on a.net whinging all of the time about?' until it came to eat. Then I was noticeable particularly when in a block of four. The...

I think one thing that's a must is reducing the recline on the seats. Mr fa2fi had the guy in front fully reclined and I think for him that was the biggest complaint. But we're already planning next...

I flew American 777 a few weeks ago. It was noticeably narrower than the BA 747 we flew out on. It didn't bother me too much. It was a bit of a faff to try eat and the tables were odd. We still had...

That's good about the SPU and RHO. They've survived the important first two seasons (I think they started S15?) so hopefully they'll be here long term.

As for new routes then it's likely limited...

They've always been one of the latest to release. It seems that Jet2 released their flights earlier than ever before this year and it seems they've been on sale for ages.

It's a real shame about the SPU and RHO flights appearing to be gone. It seems to be policy to try a route for two seasons, review it and then continue or chop it. Their problem is that they're...

I find them to be super reliable each time I have used them. I do hope they get their act together as they play an important role for affordable regional connectivity throughout the UK.

There are no NEOs on line right now but a few (about half a dozen I think) came with the new cabin but I don't think the older fleet have been retrofitted get. I think it's G-EZPM onwards.

I really like them. I used to fly hour long hops and comfort was similar to the A319/320. It is a bit louder but I always listen to music anyway so it wasn't an issue and I was always surprised at...
