Now I opened this thread to see if there might be any disruption to a Swiss fight I am taking tomorrow through French airspace.
Of the 29 posts to date, 3 convey information alone, and the rest are opinion. Now, quite often, opinions on this forum are useful but I submit that almost all of the 26 opinion posts in this thread are not at all useful.
Yes, things are getting very over-heated once again, which is a shame, because there was a sign that it was beginning to attract new users (and spam and trolls, but that goes with the territory).
Can we try and stick to the topic threads please?in reply to: French ATC strike May 2223 May 2018
It will be a shame, if true. And also Virgin moving its Las Vegas flights over to Heathrow…22 May 2018
I’m flying on the inaugural of this today.
It’s interesting because the new double daily flights seem to be as a result of IAG slots that it does not currently have the aircraft to use.
IAG seeks to embed position at UK airport as it turns to Qatar and Thomas Cook
“Under EU “use it or lose it” rules, an airline must run services for at least 80 per cent of any given slot at an airport or it goes back into a pool for distribution. Of the 7,100 flights that used to belong to Monarch, IAG will take on 5,700, mostly for BA, while Qatar and Thomas Cook will take on 1,400, the shortfall the UK airline could not fill.”
But there’s also the rumour on FlyerTalk that these flights are only available for sale until the end of October 2018…
So plenty to ask Gatwick Airport this lunchtime.22 May 2018

All of which is true, I’m sure, but then strange that the CEO seems to place such importance on technology

AN update on this one from the Financial Times yesterday
IAG keeps ex-Monarch Gatwick slots
BA owner in deal to keep extra Gatwick slotsIAG seeks to embed position at UK airport as it turns to Qatar and Thomas Cook
British Airways owner IAG has struck a deal with Qatar Airways and tour operator Thomas Cook to hold on to extra airline slots at Gatwick, which it gained after the collapse of Monarch last year. IAG turned to Qatar Airways, its biggest shareholder, and Thomas Cook’s airline to help it fill the extra slots over the busy summer period as its seeks to embed its position at Gatwick, Britain’s second-biggest airport.19 May 2018
Yes, absolutely correct.
I’ve deleted a lot of new topics and threads on this subject, but often they introduce themselves on one thread and then start another, or ask questions etc.. Just part of life on forums and threads, I suppose. Nothing too bad at the moment.
And as I mentioned above, there’s some really useful information on this thread, and the product they are trying to promote isn’t mentioned!
Have a great day

Excelent stuff – thank you, everyone.
Unfortunately there is a poster or posters who are determined to promte their internet product on the forum and are creating new handles and starting new threads on this subject. I know we are all very welcoming to new posters here, but just as a warning we are monitoring the forum very closely at the moment.
