Not exactly correct. Connectair was sold to ILG (in 1988) and was rebranded Air Europe Express. However during that ownership period in, I think, 1990, Connectair was merged into Air Europe and there...

Better known as IAS Cargo Airlines. Normally the call sign was abbreviated to “Fox Fox” (designator was FF which supposedly stood for “freight flight”).

The only other point I would add to my earlier post is that while I don’t like wearing a mask, my wife has no problem with wearing one and can’t understand why it bothers me. Everyone is different.

This looks like AF/KL Group looking to stop Vueling getting established on Paris UK routes. Will be interesting to see if this is repeated on other Vueling France-UK routes.

But surely that argues for different short haul products at LGW and LHR. Despite BA’s best efforts (remember the “hub without the hubub”?) LGW has never been a hub in the way that LHR is/was.

Interesting to see in the Sunday Times article that the JetBlue CEO started his career on a check in desk at GLA. Maybe he’s got an affinity for the place.
