Sky News just now running this story which it describes as one of the more improbable business stories of the year. Finished the report with the quote “God loves an optimist”. Couldn’t agree more.

One cabin crew member per 50 seats, or part thereof installed. 100 seats - 2 cc is ok, 101 seats requires 3. In a previous life, if we were desperately short of cc, we’d reconfig the RJ100 into a...

You call it herd. I call it yield. I assume you’ve never had the chance to look at the yield difference for the same destination LHR vs LGW. it might well shock you.

I agree some of your points are reasonable and as a short term solution, maybe for domestics as well, the lower trip costs of an EMB vs 320 or 737 could be useful. However problem one is that I don’t...

If Nicola doesn’t back down from her political position of not following England in changing the quarantine rules, it will further decimate Scottish inbound tourism (or NCL will be unexpectedly busy)
