    Do you like a good curry?

    I start with pan cooking 4 chicken breasts cubed to size add pepper and salt. Same with the onions and peppers (yellow red and green) pan fry them until soft. Now for the large cooking pot, place the cooked chicken and unions, peppers and add two tins of chopped tomatoes. Part boil a pint of water not too hot, add tree table spoons of hot curry powder and three table spoons of mild curry powder and whisk until its mixed and add to the pot. Add one tin of sweet corn ( add the juice if the curry is too thick ) let it simmer away for a good few hours. then on the last hour add a full tin of chopped pineapples with the juice. Then simmer with the lid of until it thickens up. I like it with a jacket potato.

    Etihad Airways $1.52 billion loss

    Etihad Airways posts $1.52 billion loss Etihad Airways has reported a loss of just over US$1.5 billion for its core airline operations in 2017. The figure is an improvement of $432 million on the $1.95 loss recorded in 2016, and follows a year of changes including route rationalisation, the removal of premium chauffeur drive services at international destinations, and the introduction of buy-on-board choices. Etihad said that the 22 per cent improvement in its core operating performance had been achieved “despite facing challenges including significant fuel cost increases, the entry into administration of its equity partners Alitalia and Air Berlin, and initial investment in a comprehensive business transformation programme”. Cost-cutting initiatives saw the carrier reduce administration and general expenses by $162 million compared with 2016. A total of 18.6 million passengers flew with the airline in 2017, at an average load factor of 78.5 per cent. In recent months Etihad has announced route cuts and cancellations including the dropping of Edinburgh and Perth, and the halving of flights to New York. The carrier will however launch a new service to Barcelona in November. Commenting on the results, Etihad Airways CEO Peter Baumgartner said: “Our transformation process has delivered tangible results to date, with a significant improvement in performance for 2017. “Passenger yields for the last quarter were up a very healthy 9 per cent versus the same period a year before. On-time performance was at record levels and operationally we continue to drive down costs without compromising on safety or quality across all areas of the business. “The major driver to becoming a more agile and efficient organisation, resilient in a very competitive landscape, is our continued investment in skilled professionals, technology and digital innovation, which is going to allow us to become smarter, faster and even more responsive to the ever-changing needs of our customers, making Etihad the airline of choice. These developments are at the heart of our transformation strategy.” etihad.com
  11. Emirates considers hand baggage only fares Dubai-based Emirates is seriously considering offering passengers cheaper hand baggage only (HBO) fares. The latter have proved popular with younger passengers and especially the millennials who tend to travel light. In a recent airlineratings.com interview Emirates’ president Sir Tim Clark revealed that his airline will be reviewing its economy class with reference to product and pricing. Part of the review concerns HBO tariffs. These originally appeared in Europe and were offered on short-haul routes. But the past few months have seen their introduction on long distance routes. Airlines like to offer HBO fares because, costing less than regular fares, these tariffs gain the carrier a more competitive display in booking systems. In the case of Emirates we see it already facing price competition from conventional airlines. Now it’s being challenged by low-cost long-haul air services. Norwegian is flying into Dubai and Bangkok (from Scandinavia). Last year Norwegian launched non-stop service between London and Singapore (which competes with Emirates’ indirect offerings via Dubai). One of Emirates’ largest passenger flows is on the multiple routings between North America and India. From later this year it will be facing competition from Icelandic low-cost carrier Wow Air (operating via Reykjavik) between North America and Delhi. Wow Air is truly a no-frills carrier. It prices cheaply because its base fare comes without the sort of extras travellers used to take for granted even with a LCC. For example, Wow Air charges extra for hand luggage. Only one small item (like a briefcase) is free of charge. Quoted by airlineratings Sir Tim Clark said, “We have many, many passengers who travel great distances with just a backpack.” A good example is “with the software engineering living in Seattle, working for Amazon, who just wants to fly home to Hyderabad to visit his family for three days.” “He just comes on board with a small backpack – no more.” Says India’s aviation author Vinamra Longani, “The European carriers switched to [long-haul] HBO fares because of competition from long-haul low-cost carriers [LCCs].” “The Gulf carriers are essentially ‘long-haul LCCs’ and they [as they mature] need to bring in extra revenue in order to survive.” Besides their introduction on long-haul routes, Longani also sees them “proving popular on shorter hops such as within the Gulf/MidEast region and between the Gulf and India.” If Emirates were to go down the HBO route (and it will surely happen should it decide to introduce a ‘light’ tariff) we can expect its local rivals Etihad and Qatar Airways to follow suit (despite what they might say publicly). emirates.com
