That once we have got rid of the last of the Airbuses in September/October that there will be a substantial cost saving on being able to use African Pilots and not needing Expats with very expensive pay, accommodation and periodic return home costs, as we will not need their specific Airbus skills.
This should have a sizeable impact on the Final Quarter and thereafter.
If we do restart JNB I very much doubt it will be until the E190 arrives and note the ERJ is several weeks away,
Move of Nico to buy outright the title to the name Fastjet from Stelios at the time, as I am sure that it would have cost more now, now that things are moving on, and a lot lot more next year.
I know that at the time £2.5 million was money that we did not think we could afford.
It is increasingly looking like a masterstroke by Nicos on the timing and price to protect our Brand for the Future.
If we were to recommence Dar - JNB we would have to use FJD to go the distance until the E190's arrive and use the ERJ-145 for inter Tanzania flights.
With this news I think JNB will be back at 3 a week and more new routes
Fastjet (FN, Dar-es-Salaam) is set to add its maiden ERJ-145 equipment in the form of ZS-BBH (msn 145067) on lease from fastjet shareholder, Solenta Aviation (SET, Lanseria).
Skyliner Aviation reports the twinjet, which was previously in service for Fastjet Zimbabwe (FN, Harare Int'l), was recently added to the Tanzanian register as 5H-FJF ahead of its delivery in the coming weeks. It is recalled that two ex-Mandarin Airlines (AE, Taichung Ching Chuan Kang) EMB-190s are due for delivery in the coming weeks as well.
Tanzanian low-fare airline Fastjet currently operates one A319-100 on regular flights covering Dar-es-Salaam, Mwanza, Mbeya, and Kilimanjaro domestically and Harare Int'l and Lusaka regionally. Flights from Dar es Salaam to Johannesburg O.R. Tambo, South Africa, have been quietly discontinued.
We have had a pool of four ERJ s we have been using
instead of BBD at the moment, I wonder if it is in Fastjet Livery and why ?
Kaiser concludes, "fastjet has been experimenting with pure organic growth and measuring its rate of attrition against its redefined community and content strategy. Our rate of attrition has reduced significantly, while organic growth has enabled fastjet’s Facebook community to grow into pole position among its peers.
Despite what I wrote yesterday, about it proving to be a popular option, I did have the same thought, taskmaster, especially the "in Africa" angle. Let's just hope we've now reached that " time to run".
I suppose they didn't wat to run before could walk - LCC slightly different in Africa, could snuff out the embers with the wrong approach.
Surprised this option (and potential ancillary revenue stream) hadn't been introduced already / at the same time that seat booking, or 'buckets of fish', as this seems like a core part of a standard LCC model.
OK, if you want to be pedantic - like me!
EasyJet's equivalent is branded as "Speedy Boarding".
I think that'll prove to be a very popular option, at least for as long they keep the premium at just $5. I always choose it whenever I fly with it's 'sister' company, with whom it costs a good bit more!
Very strange as I don't remember Wolfgang passing critical comment when Ed Winter removed all figures about monthly performance
Had he have done Ed Winter and co may have been removed a lot earlier i
Wolfgang, clearly is not getting inside info with our new CEO, and it's obviously irritating him !, as a result he he becoming critical of fastjet, the below tweet in my opinion is totally unfair and out of character, a taste of things to come!
I wonder what @fastjet has to hide that they do not publish their July loadfactors on their site? NOT what is expected of a 'Best Airline'
Double standards! He recently slated fjet for not giving more detail on ( in Fjet s words ) DAR JNB is temporarily suspended
Make of this “fastjet / fastnews” development on Wolfgang’s blog what you will!
Specifically there is a lengthy ‘boast’ from our spokesman Hein Kaiser on fastjet becoming the “airline brand with largest Facebook following in Africa” here:
I’m taking it as an early, positive sign of the company’s laudable intention to keep its existing and potential passengers in the loop and their questions and enquiries dealt with far more promptly. And in the process, maybe us too!
... and I notice that the seat layout for the DAR-MWZ flights changes from the A319 six-seats-per-row to the E190 four-seats-per-row from 31 October. The new seat layout suggests 108 seats per aircraft.
And the Mandarin interior seems to feature good-looking grey seats at present; if these aren't changed, they will even suit the fastjet colour scheme! : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cLL4hwmpmc
Also a non subscriber Marksman , but as you suggest it will be out on many a media soon maybe even an RNS
I daresay that will reappear soon in another release. But meanwhile, if you feel so inclined Fjetcrazy, perhaps you could copy and paste in the text as it's all blurred out to we non-subscribers! Thanks.
