Okay, folks... this is an important announcement:

I have created a thread dedicated to everything Airport Statistics. Don't be surprised if you don't see your stuff here; I moved everything with graphs, figures, and analysis to make everything more efficient and on topic.

The role, then, of this thread would be more of travel advice, showcase the latest and noteworthy airport and airline developments that users may have great interest in following, and addressing forum questions, comments, complaints, and suggestions.

I am looking forward to seeing all of those wonderful stats in the new thread. And by the way, it will be a sticky too to make it easy for reference.

The world of planes is getting more and more boring.

The 747-8 and A380 don`t do so well. At the end all airports will be full of two engines planes.


747-400, MD11, A340-600, BAe 146, Fokker 100 will vanish. We will see only 777, 787, A350, A330, 737 and A320 Neo.
Boring...

Au contraire, the improvements can be found deep inside an aircraft's body, with better engines and fuel mechanisms, not to mention the overall composition of today's aircraft, allowing aircraft like the B787 or the Bombardier Challenger to fly much further with less fuel than the B747.

I know there is much improvement inside. It`s cheaper to fly and the air inside will be better. We also get bigger windows. When i am a passenger i will get the improvements.

But if you look from outside at the plane it will be boring. The 777-9X will be a beautiful plane but all in all it will be monotonous in the sky. Yesterday i saw the 787 and the A350 at the Frankfurt airport. Nice but not that beautiful as a 747-400, MD11 or the A340-600.

I just hope for a succesful A380-900. 80x80m. The strecthed version will look better, than the current one.

All right, I want to have a quick response from you:

I have found a thread dedicated to Luxair - Luxembourg Airlines, but it is currently locked. Not helping matters is there is no dedicated thread for Luxembourg - Findel Airport. Here's my question:

Would you rather see either of the following for Luxembourg's Aviation thread here as...

- Independent and separate (as for most of the threads, in which I will reopen);
- Lumped together with either Belgium or Netherlands (remember the BeNeLux); or
- Putting it under a broader "European aviation" thread (which I will do my research)

Departure Board in DUB this AM. While most of the cancellations are Stobart ATR Turboprops because weather conditions for turboprops are awful in North UK and Ireland the dastardly Stobart have also decided not to fly the kiddies to the North Pole today.

Surely they were not gonna use a turboprop for that one..or were they. ??? €700 per person that cost.

I wonder what type of airport would be better at handling over 100 million passengers per year: An airport with multiple passenger terminals, or an airport with just one or two passenger terminals and multiple concourses attached to those terminals.

More Airlines To Offer HighSpeed Wi-Fi On Board

http://www.rttnews.com/2590532/more-...-on-board.aspx

Quote:
Connectivity is a necessity in today's life, and no matter whether you are in ground or air. That's why airline companies are competing each other to provide better quality Wi-Fi connection during travel. Now you can check e-mails, share a photo on Instagram, send messages on Whats app or browse and can be well connected while on a travel at a height of 10,000 feet above earth's surface.

Air Berlin has recently announcement the availability of AeroMobile 3G eXPhone service for its passengers and the new high speed connectivity will transform your communication abilities and access to Internet. Till now, airlines were using 2.5G connectivity on board.Phone calls and Skype or other VoIP services will not be allowed. The Internet service will be provided by Panasonic Avionics Corp.

The passengers can download free airberlin connect app from Apple App store or Google Play store. Smartphone, tablet or laptop charges will apply for Wi-Fi at a rate of 4.90 pounds for 30 minutes or 20 mb data. For 60 minutes or 50 mb data, charges will be 8.90 pounds.

In medium-haul flights passengers have to pay 13.90 pounds for 90 mb data for the duration of the flight, while in long-haul flights, 120 mb data will be available for 18.90 pounds for the duration of the flight.

Emirates, JetBlue, Norwegian, Turkish airlines, Air China, Philippine airlines, Hong Kong airlines and Nok air are currently providing free Wi-Fi in their flights. In a matter of a few months, international airlines such as Ryanair, Finnair, Kuwait airways, Srilankan airlines, TAAG Angola airlines, Westjet, etc. will provide Wi-Fi facilities.

I would think would giant terminal would be enough for 100 million passengers per year... And maybe an addition side Terminal for extra capacity...

Oh, sorry, I meant to say "multiple satellite terminals" attached to the one or two main terminals I was talking about in my previous post, not "multiple concourses".

Well, in this respect I think the new Mexico City airport, currently under construction, may give a hint about the trend. It has been designed by Foster & Partners to manage up to 125 million passengers. It will only have up to two Terminals with several satellite terminals.

I think Istanbul new airport project also considers one or two terminals and several satellite terminals.

Mexico City latest render taken from Foster's website can be seen in the picture below:
