    Hm. First of all, you as a man in Israel feel responsible for aviation in Cyprus?
    Yes, I mean, you are definitely closer to Cyprus than I am. And what if you are the jetphotos member who is closest to Cyprus.

    But let me talk about my now.. and I really try to stay humble in view of cases like the fatal Ju-52 accident with zero survivors this year,
    almost 10 years as a jetphotos forum member,

    the IATA code CO in my eyes does not belong to an airline in Cyprus!

    I talk about Continental Airlines, which existed
    for almost 78 years
    between May 1934 and March 3rd, 2012 with the IATA code CO.

    To stay polite, I don't call everybody a thief who 'steals' such a code, but

    you opened a topic for an airline which existed for less than 3 years. Here in this forum, we know similar happenings: e.g. La Mia Bolivia, who owned valid landing rights
    between 2015 and 2016.

    I don't use the word 'airline' for such happenings. What is a successful international airline. I'd say
    a) older than me
    b) and known on more than 1 continent for successful flights with a length of 2,000 nautical miles or more.

    That is and always will be Continental airlines (IATA: CO, 1934-2012),

    and not short term happenings which were founded even after you joined this forum!
    Greetings.

    PS: Be honest. You also like this aircraft (and this aeroporto..) and you wonder why Cyprus should operate an own airline, cp. in Hamburg (without an airline only for this town) live clearly more people than in Cyprus... Here is your aircraft, isn't it, on one of my beloved airports :
    LY-B744 at Villafranca aeroporto, 2018.

    LH also has a intercontinental history, the Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - NYC route, open since June 1st, 1955.
    A/C type: Lockheed Super Constellation.
    The airline code since a few weeks is no longer LH, but the operator stays the same on the DUS - NYC route ...

    Sorry but I can't really be short on certain topics, Erez.

    What do we need for an airport with more than 20 million passengers per year. What we always need, connections, not only with Italy, the Czech Republic and the USA .

    Here on my home airport only a few days ago I discovered an overland bus with a license tag (dt.: Kfz-Kennzeichen) which forced me to have a second and a third look at it...
    The blue part on the left side said, ok, Europe, but.. SK, which stands for Slovakia (!).

    Which is, if we talk about Bratislava, not less than 1000 km or 625 US-miles (on the road) away from my home airport.. With another jetphotos member, I recently talked about what some people call a foot walk. But this overland bus is good for more than a foot walk.

    Welcome to Lohausen International airport, all you overland buses.

    I am indeed close to Cyprus, which is the closest country to Israel except the neighboring Arab countries.
    But my closeness does not the story here..
    Personally, as an aviation enthusiast, I feel sorry for every sad event in the aviation world, it does not matter to me whether it happened close to me or on the other side of the world.
    Regarding the "theft" - I am a little less involved.

    And that's a thing which I've never called you, but that was meant for Cobalt Air.

    Btw, do you know somebody with the name "Captcha"? That really seems to be a f* idiot! He tried to tell me that between 2000 and 0800 CEST all entries are written by robots. Now, what would be your answer for Mr Captcha? My answer is this one:

    My consequence is, I'll no longer write useful entries between 2000 and 0800 DUS time!

    Let's rather say I'll do what Mr Captcha also does, display
    alot
    of useless bad quality photos, which can reach the number of 1,000 within one minute with a fast finger on Mr Capchas refresh button..

    Let me utter one last wish. If a robot here is necessary, pls take one which is not tired after I've misused him for less than 1 minute!

    Actually, I don't think anyone has any such expectations of him anymore. Useful? I'll be grateful if he posts something even somewhat coherent.
