    I choose not to fly BA, instead I fly KL via AMS or AF via CDG for most of my travel. If I wanted to fly FR or EZY I would – I wouldn’t fly with their lessor competition (BA!).

    I will be flying the short sector from Kigali to Kilimanjaro in August and can let you know my thoughts on Kigali International Airport and Rwandair thereafter

    I’ll be flying ABZ > AMS > KGL on 7 July 2018 so will experience the new, improved / more efficient service!

    There are more important demands for taxpayers than to subsidise a private company?

    More important than giving the economy a boost? Just now, when the BoE has just reported that the UK has already lost 2% of its GDP due to the Brexit shambles? With no realistic plan to recover this loss or preventing further harm due to Brexit?

    I believe LHR needs all the investment it can get. It’s one of the pillars of the UK economy. Runway 3 is long overdue!

    Agreed! Although I think LHR and LGW should both be allowed to progress with their plans to allow competition

    Ah the irony, I’ve just received an email from them giving me £20 off my next flight as a birthday gift from AF. I’m thinking they need all the money they can get at the moment!

    I do wonder if what the French government says is true or not, I can’t really see them sitting back and letting the flag carrier fail . .

    I was due to fly LH from VNO to MLA today via FRA. Having not been advised of any changes, I arrived at the airport a little after 4am for 6.10am departure, only to be told I’ll be flying TK via IST leaving at 11.55 . .

    Notes to editors:
    · The World Traveller Plus cabin in the fleet’s three class 777s will be doubled from 24 to 52 seats, while the Club World cabin will be reduced from 40 to 32 seats.
    · The World Traveller cabin in the fleet’s four class 777s will see an additional 12 seats added.
    · Heathrow’s Boeing 777 fleet will be fitted with the new World Traveller seat from autumn 2019.

    Waiting to see the reaction at LGW before retrofitting the LHR fleet?

    From Aberdeen Airport: TRAVEL ALERT: There are numerous cancellations from ABZ to the London area tomorrow (01 March), please check with your airline. British Airways flights BA1305 and BA1307 to LHR at 0920hrs and 1040hrs are operating as usual. Our runway remains open, excluding for essential snow clearing operations. Passengers are advised to check with their airline for specific information relating to their flight.

    We’ve had little in the way of snow up here in comparison to Edinburgh / Glasgow and the central belt. Drifting is the main problem. I work under the flightpath of ABZ and the airport seems mostly to have been operating normally albeit with delays.

    I do find it interesting that both ABZ and GLA have suffered recent cuts to services, both are owned and operated by AGS (as well as Southampton). This makes me wonder whether it is all down to APD or perhaps AGS having unrealistic fees/unwillingness to help airlines if/when routes aren’t performing as expected? AGS’ loss is GIP’s gain … EDI and LGW seem to be doing fine!

    I’ve seen this in the past and first noticed when looking to book flights with Lufthansa – the airlines use the cookies data from your web browser, clear the cache from your internet browser and cookie data and it won’t know you’ve already visited 🙂

    My airline of choice from ABZ via FRA! I chose them before AF, KL, BA, SAS and more . .
    Well done LH!

    Wonder how they will use the slots?

    – More high density 777’s to take on Norweigan?
    – Opportunity to give Level a base in the UK?

    In either case, where will they fly to I wonder?

    Having used the new Northern Lights lounge at ABZ on several occasions now it is a world of difference to the previous Swissport and BA Lounges. Step change in quality in terms of what is being offered. BA will really need to up their game at ABZ (perhaps why it is taking so long?)

    I flew into Taoyuan a few weeks ago and had the same experience – it seems to be normal!
