I've long referred to any unidentified single-engined light aircraft chugging overhead as an "LFJ". This has been accepted by friends and family, who just assumed that, me being a plane bore, I knew...

Will be sad to see the EMB-120 retired. Flew on it BUH-KIV a couple of years ago: very nice. Moldova is indeed lovely, though be very careful in Transnistria. In fact, don't go to Transnistria if you...

There has been some advertising here in North East England for the United New York Newark route, but I have been scouring the interweb for any signs of advertising in the USA for the route. Not found...

Managed to get a ride on an Aeroflot IL-96 in 2013 before they were taken out of service last year. Magnificent. Not so lucky when I tried to go on an AN-24 from Tromso-Murmansk, as the flights were...

I understand that Ryanair is considering a bid. Acquiring CY would give them a Cypriot AOC, with which they could start flights from their planned Cyprus base to Russian and Middle Eastern...

I did LAN Airlines a couple of years back when they operated A340s on the Frankfurt-Madrid-Santiago route. Very nice. Think they use 787s now if you fancy a go on one of those.

Maybe passengers are flying TO the Reims area, rather than originating there, and avoiding a needless slog through Paris as a result.

What a great pity. I flew on its sistership RA-96011 last year, and it was a most pleasant flight. While very dated inside, it felt spacious, powerful and quieter than I'd imagined it would. I...

For lovers of Soviet aircraft types, there are plenty of 'graveyard' aprons at otherwise active airports across Russia, Ukraine, and the other former USSR republics.
