That will be all very confusing. Would prefer to have two subforums. One for airports (construction updates, traffic data, destinations etc) and one for arlines (pictures, news, plane orders, routes etc).

That'd might be a bit of a stretch. Developing a thread nomenclature is the best way so far... but I do hope we can have much more integrated threads for discussion rather than having everything so spread out.

MISC | World Airports News, Rankings, Figures

Instead of starting new threads, I just thought of developing a thread for all the future aviation news that might not necessarily fit in to existing threads.

This is the first I've ever heard in the industry. And it's absolutely outrageous.

Quote:
Comtel Air cancels Amritsar to Birmingham flights

One of the passengers filmed the moment the airline asked for £23,000 to complete the journey
An airline accused of asking passengers to pay extra for fuel to fly home has cancelled UK flights at the weekend.

A Comtel Air flight from Amritsar to Birmingham was grounded in Vienna on Tuesday by its Spanish carrier Mint Lineas Aereas due to financial issues.

Passengers said they were "held to ransom" and asked to pay a total of £23,000 to continue their journey.

Comtel majority shareholder Bhupinder Kandra said money paid to travel agents had not been passed on to the airline.

One of the travel agencies selling seats on the flight, Astonbury Ltd, trading as Skyjet UK, has announced it has ceased trading.

Continue reading the main story
By Philip Churm, BBC Asian Network

It was unusual to see a small travel agent in the West Midlands so busy on a weekday morning, but dozens of people were crammed into the corner-shop premises.

Many were shouting at staff and demanding forms from Atol to claim their money back.

Others were carrying thick wads of cash to buy new tickets from other airlines for themselves or their families.

After Air India stopped direct flights from Birmingham to Amritsar in 2008 almost 100,000 Asians in the Midlands, with links to the Indian state of Punjab, turned to alternative airlines like Comtel to stay in touch with family.

One angry customer told me: "It's more important than money. It's about keeping families together."

After the current rush to ensure relatives are safely returned to the UK and to recover some monies, there is likely to be renewed pressure on India's state carrier to reinstate direct flights from a UK region with one of the largest Asian communities.

The Essex-based company was registered with the Air Travel Organisers' Licensing (Atol), run by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in the UK.

The CAA said it would be stepping in to "assist repatriation for all customers", and estimated 200 Skyjet UK customers were currently abroad.

It added that passengers who had not yet travelled would be able to claim a full refund via the CAA.

BBC India Correspondent Sanjoy Majumder said several hundred passengers in India were thought to be affected by the cancelled flights.

"It's quite hard getting a handle on the exact number. Most of them have links to the area. Most of them are staying at relatives' homes.

"This was an airline that had a flight every single day from Birmingham to Amritsar," he said.

Birmingham Airport confirmed the flight cancellations and said anyone due to travel should contact their agent.

One of those held up in Vienna, Kulveer Singh, from Wolverhampton, said passengers had been "effectively held to ransom".

"Passengers were lending money to each other to make sure we could take off. We were so desperate. It had been four days at that point.

"I am diabetic and ran out of insulin the day after the flight first got cancelled. I had to watch what I ate until I could locate a medical shop which had an insulin pen I could actually use.

"I was lucky there were other diabetics on the flight and we could look out for each other," he said.


One passenger said the request for money was made on board the plane
Daljit, from West Bromwich, said her mother and brother were among the passengers grounded during refuelling in Vienna on Tuesday.

She said: "They did make it back after paying £130 each while they were stuck in Vienna.

"They should have got back here on Saturday, that was the original date to come back, and my brother had to start work on Monday so he's lost that because he didn't make it back on time."

Sue Ockwell, a crisis management expert at Travel PR, said the situation was highly unusual in Europe, where airlines are tightly regulated.

"It's a bit like, well, boarding a train and saying that you can't go on because they've cut the electricity off because they haven't paid the bill," she said.

Staying with relatives
Amarjit Duggal told the BBC that she flew from Amritsar last week after scattering her mother's ashes.

She said her father, sister and uncle were still there and did not know when they would be able to return home.

In October the Austrian-registered airline contracted the Spanish carrier firm Mint Lineas Aereas (MLA) to operate a service between Birmingham and Amritsar.

Continue reading the main story
Comtel Air flight cancellations

Friday: COE732 Birmingham-Amritsar *STD 16:15
Saturday: COE702C Amritsar-Birmingham STD 04:30 COE732 Birmingham-Amritsar STD 18:15
Sunday: COE702C Amritsar- Birmingham STD 05:30
(*STD Scheduled Time of Departure)

The airline said on Thursday it was owed money by English travel agents along its supply chain, which is why it had not paid MLA since last month.

In a statement on Thursday, MLA said: "Due to unresolved financial questions, it was decided by Mint Lineas Aereas as operating carrier to stop operations for Comtel Air."

The British High Commission said on Thursday it was not aware of any Birmingham-bound Comtel Air passengers who were stranded at the airport in Amritsar.

Sanjoy Majumder said many of the passengers due to fly back to the UK were thought to be staying with friends or family, rather than waiting at the airport.

He added that the Indian and British authorities had advised passengers to buy tickets on commercial airline flights over the weekend, most of which were more expensive than their original tickets.

Nice

American airports almost stagnated while European airports continued their growth.

Guys, thanks for your efforts in restructuring this thread! But, I think its way too merged-up!

For example, Gulf Based carriers are all merged in one thread! I think its very confusing, because each of the carriers have its own policy, fleet, route structure, organization, livery, ect.. and each warrant its own separate thread.

I lost interest in this new thread title!

Moreover, with 700+ posts in one thread, its impossible to browse to see information about a specific airline...

Thank you for your comment. The reason for the geographical merger was that both these threads didn't seem to have much updates or discussion on a regular basis, despite its size.

Ill monitor the thread over the next few weeks, and should there, ill dismantle the thread and start individual ones again.

If its any help Ill will be glad to help you, since I am an aviation nut ! I am already a member in Airliners.net (QatarA340) and several other aviation forums. I can certainly help update the Qatar Airways thread and the New Doha Airport thread which I regularly update. I can also post regularly on threads relating to EK and EY if you like as well, whenever I receive some information.

CNN discusses the world's most "hated airports." Here's their selection:

Quote:
  1. Paris-Charles de Gauille, Paris, France
  2. Los Angeles International Airport, Los Angeles, United States
  3. London Heathrow, London, England
  4. Toncontín International, Tegucigalpa, Honduras
  5. Jomo Kenyatta International, Nairobi, Kenya
  6. John F. Kennedy International, New York, United States
  7. Tribhuvan International, Kathmandu, Nepal
  8. Perth Airport, Perth, Australia
  9. São Paulo-Guarulhos International, São Paulo, Brazil
(via CNN)

I didn't think LHR was that bad, though it was definitely not the most pleasant airport experience I've had before. CDG, on the other hand, was quite something. I think the experiences between terminals are night and day: my experience in T2E was excellent, but T2A was a complete disaster: long line-ups, not only for security, but for the mens washroom, lack of food options, queuing to wait for a bus to board the aircraft (not having enough buses), tight and cramped, I can go on.
