Becoming a hobby (right forum)
« on: December 13, 2010, 12:01:16 AM »
As I'm back at London City again, I figured it was time for my complaint about people using types not capable of using EGLC in real life ;D

A321 - Copenhagen (ConAir)
B737 - CoconAirlines (Dusseldorf)
CRJ9 - Fly Blue (East Midlands)
CRJ9 - Volppe Airlines (Frankfurt)
F100 - Suisse Express (Geneva)
B738 - Air Ukraine (Madrid)
CRJ9 - Volppe Airlines (Manchester)
CRJ9 - Fly Blue (Newcastle)
B734 - Bikini Air (Palma De Mallorca)
A320 - Fly Europe (Prague)

* Fokker 70 is capable but not sure 100 is (despite speed brakes)
* Not aware that any CRJ type is certified
* A318 is only A320 series aircraft certified
* No 737s have been certified for EGLC

LOL...cracking me up...

What I would love is a way to mod the aircraft for arrival at YTZ. Its possible to make RJ approaches at YTZ and the Q400 should not be reduced capacity for landing...

Excellent, that is brilliant news. (It was still worth my little post because it makes me feel better :))

Noticed on Sami's list that the Jetstream 41 isn't on his list of EGLC types though :( thats one of my favourite aircraft in AWS (and kind of real life) even though they are a pain in the arse to turn a profit on and they are allowed in in reality.

Not sure if it's possible to separate just the A318 out of its fleet group (A318-A321). If not, it may be that you won't be able to fly the A318 there... :P

Cheers

Indeed it would.

Although speaking of the A318, can we have a one-off demand change for EGLC - KJFK please :).

Good Point as BA are operating one of their A318's out of there, I think it only has 32 or is it 38 Business seat's on board  :-\

The BA A318 is actually doing a technical stopover at Shannon in Ireland and is direct on the return leg.

During the stopover that last 35 minutes the aircraft is refuelling and the passenger are clearing US immigration and customs.

The service is operated twice a day  8)

Edit : 32 seats only and 3 CC

Yup, they're real nice aircraft to fly on actually. Although with the exception of weekends they are 2x daily to JFK with the shannon stopover. Apparently BA have been getting very good load factors so I'm thinking demand growing from about 0 in 2000 to 30 in 2005 and 70 in 2010 or something like that. For someone like me the tickets would have to be astronomical to cover the costs of just 2 A318s. Plus the A318 wasnt allowed into EGLC until a couple of years ago because of the ramp extensions into the docks.
