JT16 What I thought Frankly Bizarre was how you managed to misinterpret what I said. If you had studied all my previous posts in depth you would have realised that I was saying that just like a big Company like Ryanair who made a management mistake causing untold inconvenience to a large number of people, an unplanned Aircraft breakdown can also cause immense inconvenience. In both cases those affected mostly will soon forget when things are back to normal and will not break either Airline. People soon return to them when normal service resumes when compared to the alternative.
At no point did I compare Airlines, just the effect people being let down by Airlines causes.
if you are intending to travel tomorrow (26th October 2017), please make sure to finalise your booking before:
21:00 25rd OCTOBER 2017 UTC
22:00 25rd OCTOBER 2017 Johannesburg, Harare, Lusaka (CAT)
23:00 25rd OCTOBER 2017 Dar Es Salaam (EAT)�
as our website will be temporarily under maintenance. We can't wait to welcome you on our new website tomorrow!
Apparently we are getting a new website tomorrow, I called the company today asking why the website was stating no delays during this efery! , so let�s see what this new website is going to be like, still no sign of E190 operating.
I hope this will be the last month for any disruptions this is not good.
Latest: 25/10/17 - 17:01
- Flights in Tanzania are experiencing service disruptions during next few days due to fleet transition. We apologise for inconvenience caused.
Please call the fastjet call centre or email email@example.com for assistance or further information.
With rest of schedule now pulled back to 1Nov
More disruption of customers who have booked these flights, guess the E190 paperwork is in the post.
Buxton, take the Canx response back!, just had a message from afar, they all operating today FULL as taking stranded customers from yesterday,
lets hope new plane will operate on friday
your very upset today.
Is is sold out or cancelled?
Mzanza evening flight today sold out or cancelled?
Let�s be realistic and tell it how it is, Ryanair have MONEY in the bank, we don�t, I stand by what I said , this management should be ashamed over its silence to our customers,
LOOK how many people Ryanair has enraged. Our operation in Zimbable has been Unaffected as has all the people who did not fly this week. They know this bad service is unusual for us but usual for other airlines in Africa.
This was a one year plan, much has been achieved. Let us not turn back when
the summit is in sight
Appalling state of affairs Not sure we are any better of at hands on management in Joburg than Gatwick
The E 190 has been ongoing for over a year and even after two huge share issues we have not got them flying
No Directors loans or any financial commitment does not bode well
Has anybody got an email address for Joburg ?
The reality is
Riot police called in to keep order in Mwanza
No lun HRE service for nearly two weeks
This final quarter no longer on track for being cash positive
Horrendous social media negative comments
Brand severely damaged
Star Air Cargo very unreliable, not providing back up when their aircraft fails
Fastjet been on a three day no response Holiday
Fastjet soon to spend recently raised money in Mozambique with $10 /$20 dollar one way fares
Flights to launch in few days still ( wide open)
Hope you still optimistic, I am fuming with the way management have mishandled this latest crisis
I know I�m the eternal optimist... but we can recover with a less fragile infrastructure; over the next two weeks, we should have: a) the entry into service of our first E190 in Tanzania, from 27 October, and b) the launch of three internal routes in Mozambique, from 3 November. Both of these will be a significant step forward.
By the end of the year, we could also have: a) permission for and launch of the LUN-HAR route (announced, but it seems to be bogged down), b) permission for and launch of HAR-BUL route (following press reports of more �open skies� for Zimbabwe), c) crucially, the announcement/launch of the first Fedair/fastjet routes in South Africa, �expected to commence in Q4 2017/Q1 2018� (RNS 29 September, announcing the brand licence, etc.). Achieving one or more of these will be a noticeable step forward.
There are also the three ATR72s apparently available soon for additional duties, and other irons in the fire.
So, given we are �on track to reach [our] target of cashflow breakeven in Q4 2017� (RNS 29 September), these extra income streams should be transformational over the next few months, as they increasingly cover the fixed central costs.
It is dreadful to see us being wrong footed so badly. It is clear 1) the contingency plan should A319 FJD fail was wholly inadequate, and betrays a worrying disregard for reputational risk, 2) communication to the affected passengers is woeful, and 3) communications generally are poor, for example the website currently displays the date as 16 October, and irritatingly �There are no disruptions at the moment�. Any pretence we are bringing European/North American standards of a low cost model is destroyed at a stroke.
for some !... Good management should get this under control quite quickly.
It Looks like FJH E190 did a test flight/Demo on 22nd From /To Dar
I just hope Nico is got good news for us to increase the so if not this is going down guys. I can't just keep topping up, I like I'm putting my in hole. I just need to careful for now. I can feel your pain that crazy this share promise after promise hopefully 1 day.
The ( FFU) FIELD FORCE POLICE were called in this morning to maintain order ,
I�m going to take a break from this it�s doing my head in , all this while the higherarchy engrace themselves in raising funds and wearing three piece suits at award ceremonies
Fastjet should get an award soon for not being able to organise a P up in a brewery!
This morning s flight was cancelled and left 70 pax stranded and 100 in opposite direction, on top of this last nights hre
Also canx and today�s JRO departing @ 2320
Today�s ops consist of three flights
Dreadful I think Dar -Mbeya flight has been cancelled the evening. flight to Mwanza is still scheduled
This will be an issue for any airline which has a fleet of one
Really this has set Fastjet back big time with Tanzania where we have serious competition
No chance of breaking even this year
Also no update on the website about delays
