We can blow smoke up TUIs rear end all we like, the fact is 25% of their capacity is/was 3rd party which can be cut at a moments notice. If this wasn’t the case, don’t be fooled into thinking TUI...

Branson has an emotional attachment to VS, so hopefully, something will happen. A real shame, VS had turned a corner in recent years and about to become profitable then focus on expansion. A rather...

Correct. And those pilots who re-joined did so with a lower seniority and on a new, lower pay scale.

As riskybis says. 2-3 nights downroute. Mainly long routes (far east, west coast, Brazil soon). You'll only see the east coast 2 or 3 times a year. Social is good. Never experienced it where we don't...
