  1. The Zaha Hadid designed airport just opened its door today. First flight was a China Southern A380-800 to Guangzhou. Beijing's Capital Airport is already the second busiest in the world. The Daxing airport - said to be the world's largest terminal in a single building - is expected to receive a large amount of the 170m passengers the city expects to welcome by 2025.

  2. I am using Experian too, so it was Malindo that had a data breach... I thought it was MH.
  3. Yeah hope the Lufthansa group will buy Condor back! It was rumoured that they will, wonder what the progress is.
  4. Been on Condor 757-300 flights when Easyjet purchased Air Berlin's domestic route. Flew the Berlin Tegel airport to Munich route! It's quite a good airline, seats are a bit LCC like though But I was more into the 757-300 than anything else!
  5. Imagined if Temasek group is one of them.... though very controversial and highly unlikely...
  6. There are some news circulating that 4 parties are interested in buying MAS. Qatar is one of them.... Is this for real? But there is a saying due to geopolitics in the middle east, Qatar might lose their bid....
  7. Wow, it's about effing time! They have done this in Australia and New Zealand since 2002! 17 years ago!!
  8. If they need a good name and brand... they would not pick Malaysia...
  9. So, it means SIA won't get the 737-800 at all since they will all be transferred to Scoot. Looks like SIA will get the 737 Max instead...?
  10. Featuring PW engines from the and cockpit windows from the B747-400........
  11. This two accidents will make life harder for aircraft manufacturers from now on. It will not be as simple as making subsequent variations of an existing model and bypassing all the normal requirements of producing a whole new model. The 737 Max is flawed by its design and weight distribution. Had the gotten things right, MCAS should not be required at all.
  12. If the 737Max was designed correctly with correct weight distribution from the beginning, then there wouldn't be a need for the MCAS.
  13. What was the cost involved? If it cost too much especially with Taxi and ferry, many would simply not bother. The ferry is considered expensive at HKD $175 per way, compared to the Airport bus $42 per way. Unless the airfare is super cheap, perhaps for the budget conscious group, it might work. Then again, CX had just bought HK Express, so Air Asia will face stiffer competition compared to when HK Express was managed by the ailing Hong Kong Airlines/ Hainan Airlines Group. Most people do not live close to the Ferry, nor have quick access to the Airbus bus that will make a stop at the HK Border Crossing after the airport, so that will add more time to it. As for mainland Chinese, I don't think anyone is in a hurry to go to Macau just to catch a flight. SZX is cheap enough, Guangzhou is a bit too far. Perhaps they can attract people from Zhuhai, then again, it will be a hassle to cross the Border at Zhuhai as well. Sorry I don't really see how MFM will work out especially when China had tighten the outflow of money from within their border. The gold old days of big spenders at Macau Casinos are gone... I hope TF had done his feasibility studies.
  14. Not really a good link from HK - it is too much of a hassle to go to Macau airport to catch a flight. It takes near 2-3.5 hrs per way, 2 hrs is considered quick... One can probably do it within two hours, but you need an HK ID card / smart gate option for both HK and MO side. It would also help once the monorail starts operating, connecting the Cotai ferry with the airport. I am going to fly from MFM to BKI next month and we shall see...
  15. I have seen this ad before in New Zealand, when BA still flies to Auckland in the early 90's with the 747-400... in Landor livery that is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WKYhEPzCmU
