happy monday everybody (boo)

I was in SeaTac yesterday morning in the B terminal and I noticed that at the S terminal, I was lucky to see 2 NWA A330's, a 753, a KE 772, an AF 332, and an LH 333 (I think). I did not know that LH flies a 333 into SEA, I thought it would be a standard 343. When I flew inbound on Friday night, I saw an Eva Air 744 and a China Airlines bird (though don't remember the fleet type).

Anyways, just curious to know what the skeds of Int'l Carriers (frequencies and equipment) are like into SeaTac each week?


next flights: msp-phx-slc, msp-mdw, ord-sju, sju-dfw-ord, msp-dfw, dfw-phl, phl-msp, jfk-icn, icn-hkg-bkk-cdg

SAS: SK937 arrives from CPH 04:50pm, and leaves 06:45pm as SK938 using a 340-300. The route is daily in the summer and 5xweekly in the winter

We also have AM with their 73G's that arrives in the evening and flies out in the morning. HU flies 4X week between SEA-PVG using A330-200's. I believe it arrives around noontime and goes back to PVG around 2pm.

LH has a daily flight to FRA using A333's. BA typically flies a daily 744 and a 3 or 4X weekly second 744 (sometimes a 777).

NW flies A333's and A332's to NRT, AMS and LHR. They will be flying to PVG next year.

As mentioned by someone else, SK flies a daily A343 to CPH in the evenings.

Finally, CI flies A343 or A342 equipment between TPE and SEA, along with EVA which just changed back to a 74E from a 77W.

Vladavia was slated to fly into SEA via ANC from the Russian Far East using TU204-300's (?), but that apparently fell through.

So I think this is about right. SEA gets a bit of widebody love - but not so that much to make keeping track difficult!

Air France: Paris (7 x 332)
Asiana: Seoul (4 x 772)
British Airways: London (5 x 744, 8 x 772)
China Airlines: Taipei (5 x 343)
EVA: Taipei (2 x 744, 3 X 77W)
Hainan: Beijing (4 x 332)
Korean: Seoul (4 x 772)
Lufthansa: Frankfurt (7 x 333)
Northwest: Bombay-Amsterdam (7 x 332), London (7 x 332), Seoul-Tokyo ( 7 x 332->333), Tokyo (3 x 333)
SAS: Copenhagen (7 x 343)
United: Tokyo (7 x 772)

Quoting IrishAyes (Thread starter):

They just started flying to SEA recently, so I supose a 330 is a 'safer' bet to start with. PDX is 343 now though, which means it's established and doing well.

Not really, their 3 class 343 has the same configuration as their (3 class) 333, and if they use a 2 -class 343 to PDX (just like to YVR) it does mean that the premium demand is lower

Wow, I was not aware that SEA was doing so well on the long haul int'l front. By comparison, my hometown airport, IAH, has noticeably fewer long hauls.

Air France (7x772s 6x332s )
Lufthansa (7x744s)
British Airways (7x 2- 772s to upgrade to 2 744s later in the year)
KLM (7x744Ms, 6x 737-700s BBJ PrivatAir)
Emirates (7x 772LR)
Singapore (4x 77W)
"Qatar (4x 772LR) *Service to launch in Nov
Continental (LHR, LGW, CDG, AMS, NRT in addition to a number S.Am cities

Regional int'l routes..

Air Canada
Taca
Aeromexico

Looking at SEA's explosion on the int'l front, somewhat humbles IAH's recent boom.

No. The PVG nonstop will be from DTW. The PEK nonstop will be from SEA.

You have the city pairs backwards. NW operates the following out of SEA:

NW7/8: SEA-NRT-ICN. A332 - daily
NW85/86: SEA-NRT. A333 - 3x weekly
NW34/33: SEA-AMS-BOM. A332 - daily
NW106/105: SEA-LHR. A332 - daily

In addition to this, NW will be adding a daily SEA-PEK nonstop on A332's. Currently they have 2x daily 753's to HNL and another daily 753 flying a triangle route of SEA-OGG-KOA-SEA. During the winter, NW85/86 is seasonally discontinued, and that A333 is used on one of the daily SEA-HNL flights, while the other remains as a 753.

A340-500: 4 engines 4 long haul. 777-200LR: 2 engines 4 longer haul

You're right! It seems like PDX doesn't even get an F cabin.

So how is it that we get an A343 from LH here in PDX?  eyebrow  Capacity issues or aircraft range issues?

Granted Thomas, we've had AF, LH, and AM for a lot longer than they have and are considered an "established" destination.

I believe SEA will also see the end of CI service to TPE just months after they ended their IAH.

Agreed,

Still, and no disrespect to my Sea-Tac friends, but many probably do not think of SEA as a sizable US gateway airport. That said, many likely see IAH in the same light.

Sea-Tac airport's website does a pretty good job on keeping information upto date.

http://www.portseattle.org/seatac/flights/nonstopinternational.shtml

I signed up for e-mail updates for Vladovostok Air once they announced an Anchorage, AK onwards to Seattle, WA link quite a while ago. They are flying to ANC but not yet to SEA. It would be fun to see some Russian airlines back in town (Aeroflot left a few years ago).

It's possible that Vladavia couldn't cut a deal with the Port of Seattle on service here. But maybe that'll change in the future. I also had heard that Dalavia was interested in serving ANC and SEA. But not lately.

I'm hoping for a Southeast Asian airline like the return of Thai or the introduction of service by Singapore or Malaysia (maybe even Vietnam). But probably not in this fuel cost environment.

Oh man, I miss seeing Aeroflot! They had some neat looking birds. I really enjoyed it when they would bring in the TU 154. I think it was a 154, but then they went to the IL96 and 86. Before they left, did they not operate a 767? I wish they would come back. It was always cool to see the flight crews. They would come back to the airport with TV's, and tons of goodies.

It would be awesome to see Vladavia come to SEA. I would really like the chance to hear the sounds coming from the 204! Something about the sounds and smells of the Russian birds gives me the want to fly on them.

I have a photo somewhere that I took of an SAS DC-10 taking off with Mt Rainier in the background. I also seem to remember that Thai had flights from Tokyo and one other Asian destination, and flights to DFW and YYZ from Seattle. I think they even flew A310's here at one time.

A310's were near the end of TG's time here. I can't recall the routing other than SEA-YYZ, what the A/C did after that I don't know. In fact I think DFW and YYZ came into service AFTER the NRT service was cut???? I think NRT was the only Asian dest. as it continued on to BKK. However, Seoul? Maybe? Going off memory here TG was 5x a week and JL was 5x as well in the peak

To add to the list:

MX 727
