You are applying your experience with airlines in general to a ULCC model that I'm not sure you understand. Swoop is modelled quite closely on Ryanair and Jetstar. Ryanair by percentage margin is...

The fully allocated cost of a software transaction in a RES and DCS system in airlines is well understood, the cost is real and quite high (many valid reasons why this is the case, although NDC may...

It isn't a case of "getting away with it". It is a case of rules being in place to minimise compensation which leads to lower cost and lower ticket prices. The rules have to be interpreted by staff,...

I think that is an extremely small possibility, only gaining any airtime due to some people saying it shouldn't fly again.

In reality, the EASA is the key to when the MAX will fly globally again,...
