I thought they hated each other with a passion? Surely the prospect of co-operation is too much!

The score is about 6-1 in Loganair's favour in this grudge match (the only goal Eastern scored...

I'm pretty sure your Britannia 737 Captain in that era with a Polish name will have been Andrzej Jeziorski (apologies if I've not quite got that right).

It's surely an opportunistic move based on the absence of PIA from the market due to the EU air carrier ban. Can't fault them for it - if you had spare aircraft and crews and saw a gap in the...
