I think this is partly a case of Gallego wanting to own and rubber stamp the decision that Walsh made last year himself. Whilst there are definite short term difficulties the outlook is far more...

Lubitz may have been depressed but he was clearly a psychopath. Plenty of people take their lives every day without taking a load of innocent people with them.

Try the United Kingdom for nonsensical quarantine rules. Enter the UK from a red or amber area and undergo quarantine but, as you are flightcrew, you are allowed to leave quarantine to go to work....

airspeed75

Whilst I agree that the situation is dire right now it has to be taken in context; travel is still illegal except for a few specified reasons. Projecting forward using passenger numbers...

DOH is a different kettle of fish. I believe this is a OneWorld thing, Qatar will be doing the LHR to DOH on behalf of the alliance and, because Qatar have dropped LGW themselves, BA will thus take...

Vaccines in the UK are a bit of sideshow though to be honest. Even if we roll them out well here the impact on aviation comes purely from how other countries manage.

uncle-traveling-matt

“The customer will embrace the business model” is not the same thing as “Norwegian’s business model is financially viable“. What Willie was saying is that nobody was certain...

Dave Gittins

Yet the financial failure of such flights just proves the point that they were selling the product below cost. You might argue that BA overcharged but at least it was more realistic...

EIFFS

The elephant in the room with that argument being that BAs profits had been increasing every year since Norwegian started LH Ops. They can’t have been that much of a thorn in the side. The...

I flew Willie to Dublin around the time of the proposed takeover and we had him up on the flightdeck for a bit before the flight. I won’t go into great detail of the conversation but suffice to say...

At this point I think we’re requiring a miracle for Summer 21 to be in any way reminiscent of years gone by. The likelihood is that even if there is a successful vaccine in the...

You’re missing the point. You’re not going to be able to make a profit by shrinking the business by 75% either so that line of thinking is flawed. It’s what makes this whole situation such an...
