A zburat vreodata AUA la MAD? Am gasit niste statistici privitor la rutele operate dar nimic de MAD!
ch aviationAustrian Airlines (OS, Vienna) could be repositioned as a budget carrier under the name "Austrian Wings" as one of the various options CEO Jaan Albrecht is considering in order to make EUR200million (USD259.5million) in critical cost cuts.
Austrian newspaper, Die Presse, reports Austrian's existing fleet of six B767-300s would fit into Lufthansa's plans to develop a long haul budget carrier based on the Lufthansa (LH, Frankfurt Int'l) and Turkish Airlines (TK, Istanbul Atatürk) joint-venture carrier, Sun Express (XQ, Antalya). Sun Express CEO, Paul Schwaiger, also sits on Austrian's board of directors.
Among other cost-cutting measures under consideration is the removal of Austrian's B767 fleet in addition to its ageing Fokker Aircraft (Woensdrecht) fleet of fifteen Fokker 100s and six Fokker 70s. The move would also see 300 flight crew dismissed leaving only a very lean version of Austrian. The report claims Lufthansa would only consider this option if a new collective wage agreement between Austrian management and staff cannot be agreed to.
A board room meeting is due to be held later this week to consider the airline's operational future within the confines of the Lufthansa Group ...
patriotismul asta aerian iese din sfera rationamentului si a ratiunii economice - este o manifestare aproape copilaroasa, gen "da' si noi stim sa zburam - nu numai voi"...[...] iar mi-au sarit patriotii locali in cap, in Europa e timpul ca multe din marcile astea nationale mici sa dispara. [...]
ch-aviationAustrian Airlines (OS, Vienna) is reportedly leaning towards the Bombardier (BBA, Montréal Trudeau) CSeries as a potential replacement for its outgoing fleet of Fokker Aircraft (Woensdrecht). Informed sources who spoke to Canada's Globe & Mail newspaper on condition of anonymity said the Lufthansa (LH, Frankfurt Int'l) subsidiary has asked its parent for the go-ahead to acquire sixteen CSeries jets to replace its fifteen Fokker 100s and six Fokker 70s. The report did not specify which CSeries model - the CS100 or the CS300 - would be acquired.
Austrian earlier this year suspended its fleet renewal planning after it failed to reach a consensus with its trade unions concerning a new Group collective wage agreement. However, having recently clinched a break through deal with its unions, it is believed those plans are now back on.
