The 737-200s with the twin toilets in the tail was the spec on the early aircraft and was also common across the BA and Sabena 737-200s (which later ended up with European Air Charter). The rear...

I think there was a fleet commonality issue for Braathens with a mix of -200s and -300s, just as there was for Britannia until they inherited the Orion aircraft with the take-over. And the early...

Probably one of the most memorably awful designs to grace the skies for some time. The Icelandair one with different colour flashes is, I think, quite classy and has direct relevance to the natural...

BKK would be an interesting move for BA with the "densified" 777s at Gatwick, if indeed they have crew rest to facilitate it.

South Terminal re-opening will be a genuine logistical challenge. ...

Just to add one point - as Loganair were not flying those routes in 2019 then itís unlikely they could say that they are seeing reduced demand for business travel on them today?

They did a CAA proving flight about a month ago and it sounded to have gone well. It sounds like Shoreham and possibly Exeter on the cards as destinations from Alderney.

Gatwick doesn't have scanning in place at present as there are no international transit passengers through North Terminal - that's the trigger why you have to have this for UK domestics.
