Re: Any experience of EDI?

My experience of EDI dates from Sabena times and is probably too old to be useful (I even flew there on an A321, which shows that the route was successful, probably with a lot of transfer passengers).

Re: Ryanair in 2018

Ryanair announced that an unnamed regulator thwarted its plan to sell standing-only tickets, by refusing an application for test flights.

I am dreaming.... Is this a joke? I thought that the idea of standing-only "seats" had since long been abandoned.

Lufthansa won a partial victory before the EU Court in a dispute with the competition watchdogs regarding the acquisition of SWISS.

The EU Commission must now consider whether some of the conditions under which the deal was approved in 2005 could be removed, ruled Luxembourg judges.

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

The 5-Star Movement and the League, the two parties which are currently discussing the formation of a new Italian government, want to block the sale of Alitalia.

Speaking of OO-JVA, I see that it still proudly sports the Belgian and EU flags next to the registration. I thought that TUI had decided to abandon the flags.
