The flights are certainly still able to be booked in January, and it does state "A310-300" for the aircraft type (as opposed to a blank up to December regarding the type) so it looks like they will...

Thank you for the information! I just never realised how large the A350 was, I assumed they were in direct competition with each other. Now I have to try and fly on them both.....I seem to always end...

But then why do they still insist on mixing their fleets? For example BA have both 787-8s and 787-9s, but they have an A350 order coming soon too? I always thought the sensible thing was to have as...

787 and A350

I knew someone when I was young who always got really bad ear ache and nosebleeds when she flew on a DC-9. Since her family flew a lot GLA-LHR and on to the Middle East they eventually had to stop...

I can't really get worked up over it, and I think that is the problem, it is so bland. My two cents worth is that if they at least coloured the outer line of the circle and the crane yellow it would...

I just assumed that DXB is getting busier and slots becoming rarer so they have had to calculate the costs of sitting on the ground in EDI or STN are worth it in the end. Perhaps both are timed with...

I remember in the early 2000s I had often to deal with a tour company who had chartered a Ryanair B737-200 every weekend. This was in the days before Ryanair offered hot food on board, so not only...

Yes, and not just in an emergency. Aeroflot operate a daily 777-300 service to Moscow SVO from PKC and Rossiya (well, they are part of Aeroflot too these days) use their 777-200s to Moscow VKO.
