Houston has strong Ethiopian population, not as big as LA or NYC, there also other communities such as Sudanese, Somali, Eritrean, and etc. Though Chicago I am sure has also decent size, also so does MSP area.Jump to post
In addition to already mentioned routes, I think these routes could be good options: Munich - Kuala Lumpur . At the moment, there are no flights between Germany and Kuala Lumpur and unless I'm wrong, Lufthansa served KUL from FRA a few years ago. As of 6 Nov 2018, Condor will be operating between F...Jump to post
EK advantage is offer less privacy business class, so it might convince customer to upgrade or buy first class. Though EK has strong product in entertainment, on board bar, lounge, and service vs BA. BA is just cheap plastic product, when it came out it was revolutionary, though lack of storage spac...Jump to post

Ah, okay then. Have done a quick google, are bookings open to the public? Still a bit of a grey area IMO.
Aren't they technically "charters" by the Oil Companies in the area?
These are ticket classes. Upper deck is business class.Jump to post
Air Canada does it as well, for IAH, SAT, MSY, and etc. Each city assigned account manager from the contractor, though direct Air Canada manager overseas few cities.Jump to post
So, population (according to greater metro area): CKG 13M FIH 11M TSN 15M EZE 17M DAC 18M KRT 5M LAS 2M ----- As such, I would nominate EZE-KHI/JKT. KHI have 21M population and JKT have 30M. Another proposal would be TSN-GRU with GRU having 36M EZE KHI could be done on separate tickets via LHR EZE-...Jump to post
I thought LY has good terms with AA, if they do, they should start PHL, ORD, IAD, or SEA.Jump to post
ORD it 2 hrs 5 mins from IAH. If AA still had hub at STL, then STL would be the answer.Jump to post
It's worth keeping an eye on SQ over the winter. SIN-IAH traffic has been steady, but low, at roughly 55-70 passengers per sector flown. The route therefore needs strong demand MAN-IAH to continue viability. Over the summer months traffic on the MAN-IAH sector was good, but over winter it has dropp...Jump to post
To me Houston-Rome is very likely to happen once (and in case that) LH takes over AZ this year. A good route for a S19 launch. I dont think so at all. LH has LX and SN in their group. If LH was interested in adding IAH from another market, they would have done it by now. FWIW, Continental was plann...Jump to post
Looks like the discussion is off to a good start. In reading through the comments Ill add my responses below: IAH-ANC is coming back for about 10 weeks in the summer. WN won't be going back to IAH. Id say the odds a quite slim. Same with IAH-HKG, however if CX does by some miracle join Star, then i...Jump to post

They don't have a plane to do it.
Now we also have TK, which also has big share in Europe and in Africa flying places like Douala and Monrovia etc. LX would be okay, I would prefer ZRH over MUC, though I feel like MUC is tad better choice for IAH also now BMW has Houston facility as well.

Yeah, but MUC probably helps with UA and LH get passengers across to other destinations such as India, Japan, China, Middle East, Europe, and etc, also make there market with more seats to more destination. They can take out KL, AF, BA, and other airlines with this strategy. They can do the same wi...Jump to post
I feel like Lufthansa is stronger in Africa, they fly to some key markets: ABV, LOS, CAI, ALG, TUN, CMN, CPT, JNB, NBO, ADD, and I think ACC.Jump to post

As others have said, departing MEL is fairly painless, you have the usual security check when entering the passport control area after check-in. Even though the queue might appear long, the screening process is much quicker than the TSA... Passport control is also painless as it's now automated, an...Jump to post
