I see little additional orders for new A380s in the next 20 years apart from EK, QR, BA, AF, LH, QF, DL, UA, SQ, CX, AA, AC and similar Hub based airlines operating international networks growing 10-15% every 3 years and oil catching up again. Was that a joke? I would shorten that list considerably...Jump to post
I don't know if this is supposed to be strictly government. But Shared Services BP/Connoco run their own airline up in the state of Alaska moving employees around on 737s. Which in my opinion is very similar to what Janet does. That's not terribly uncommon. A lot of companies run shuttle services b...Jump to post

JAL or AA with a 787-9 to Tokyo would be the more viable option but JAL is conservative and AA doesn't seem interested. Sad really that the best thing in Maimi since the Nina, the Pinta and Santa Maria has an Atlantic state of mind but not a Pacific vision too. Probably because it's easier to funne...Jump to post

Buddy, the service reimburses you for this. Stop acting like you're this poor, persecuted soul because you don't understand the standard procedures.
The question is, how much does WN plan on growing in an already mature market? I just don't see WN adding a significant number of flights to warrant a hypothetical switch over to C. STL won't see much over 110 flights with WN in the forseeable future, unless WN acquires another airline. Generally a...Jump to post
If they ever get to the point of renumbering gates up to around E60, they should probably consider having WN swap T2 for AA's T1/Concourse C. That will never happen considering Southwest has invested a significant sum of money(and owns it?) into Terminal 2 and it's superior to anything else in the ...Jump to post
What would be the benefit compared the existing nonstop service to DFW? DFW has a clear benefit vs. LAX in terms of connections, but ORD doesn't offer connections that aren't already available. None, other than O&D. However, QF has said in the past that direct service to ORD is on their wish li...Jump to post
I have no idea about the statistics that would support, or not, the expansion of direct international services from PHX. What I do know is that BA has steadily increased the number of seats on the service to LHR and I can't get anything but an economy reward ticket next Sunday - when there are two ...Jump to post
PHX is certainly a big US without any transoceanic international flights (save BA) - but that is because of the poor quality of its population base. The city has relied on retirees and snowbirds far too much for economic expansion; as opposed to building a vibrant economy that can fill seats up fro...Jump to post
What is the probability of these becoming real. I was thinking Buffalo will have a Quick Shuttle code share. In current political scenario code share shuttles to Canada are not big winners. and PHX is a good destination for VCV positioning. Phoenix, I could see happening at some point. As much as s...Jump to post
Here's some interesting info. The city of Phoenix is offering $2m for JAL to send a 773 everyday, here in the next months AA will be retiring the 75s and replacing them with the 78-9s, and the A350s when they get them, gates A30,B13,B25,B23 will be dual jetways. I heard this last night from a frien...Jump to post
Actually, I still expect the celebrities to use the regular terminals. For example, I was flying EK to DXB and onwards to BLR, back in June.

Well, I don't think a passenger variant has been delivered in 3-4 years now. Boeing is still producing them, but only in a military variant.

[ I arrived on a 12AM flight PHX-MKE last year and the airport was indeed dead at that time. It was weird walking through a dark airport.

Perhaps a good definition for pax operations would be if there are time blocks when security check points are closed. In case of multiple security check points at an airport whichever one is closed the least. For example the main MKE security checkpoint is not manned by TSA after about 11pm most ni...Jump to post

Has there ever been a direct flight between Europe and Hawaii? If not, why not? Are any airline looking into it? It'd be low yielding passengers over a very long distance.

This just about confirms AA is no longer planning to retire the 333s in the beginning of 2018 as originally planned.

I believe there was talk somewhere that the 330 would take over for the 757s on HNL routes throughout the system.
