There is speculation that the -10MAX does not have the MCAS system, as the additional length moves the CoG backwards, so it flies like the NG's. If the -10MAX is certified as an NG variant then it...

Why are you comparing direct and indirect flights in two currencies, in different classes? There are so many variables as to make the comparison pointless. Are you looking to fly premium Economy and...

I think the LHR-IOM slot was released back to Virgin from Jet Airways. The turn-time is more suitable for long-haul departures, at two hours. I don't know if VS will have a better use for it over the...

I think they do wear EK uniforms when serving EK flights, but they are not direct EK employees. Similarly Menzies staff wear EI uniforms. I think whoever handles TCX wear some kind of scarf/tie, from...

Point-to-Point small jets from local airports is certainly an interesting business model. No-one in Europe has successfully made money with. I think it's being a bit revisionist to say that flyBe...

It seems that AF/KL might be rooting passengers through CDG rather than AMS - makes sense to fly people on AF metal, rather than an EI codeshare.
