QR ususally blocks seats on the 787 for a ULH mission so the crew can rest accordingly.Jump to post
Akbar mentioned that they will not be code sharing on the USA-EU-USA sectors. I wonder if the recent bilateral talks between USA and Qatar have anything to do with it. From what I remember, Qatar promised no fifth freedom flights from USA origin for their PAX services. But what is stopping from impl...Jump to post
Yea, can't say I understand this either. So all of a sudden QR is going to be audited to international standards and that's suddenly going to equate to DL's success in that market? And so what if it is proven QR is receiving subsidy? Not like U.S. carriers haven't. I just don't understand how U.S. ...Jump to post

I expect Heathrow will be in there somewhere.
Correct me if I am wrong but will QR take an additional 748F frame?Jump to post
Yeah I agree, always wanted to know what goes on, on those long haul freighter flights, how they are catered for and so on, hope there can be a dedicated cargo thread on a.net. Does Air France still have a dedicated cargo operation? AF still operates their 777F and KLM still operates their 747F fro...Jump to post
Cargo catering is always good - always too much, and the ’groundies’ usually have a feast on arrival from leftovers. Is the 748F the same config? I know 777F has 4 supernary generic business class seats and 2 jump seats. If its a 777F configured for a horse charter operation, you can fit up to 9 ec...Jump to post
UPS and Fedex have very nice catering. Several choices they can order in advance, as well as coolers full of drinks and a coffee maker. Some of the other carriers like Atlas need to be more creative since they fly to a lot of far flung places. Sometimes they will arrange local hotels or restaurants...Jump to post
Granted there is an upswing in demand. Airlines and their handling agents need to take in consideration of the load factor.
Sorry, thread drift, but seeing as we are gradulating the queen, how did Qatar get theirs so quick, I completely missed that? Obviously the (political) issues they are facing with the neighbours since last year contributed, but it seems to me like they magically appeared out of nowhere. I was not a...Jump to post
QR only utilises their 5th freedom rights for their cargo operation ex USA. I wonder if their new agreement will affect their cargo operation. I remember a while back that QR was interested in starting JFK-ATH-DOH. There was quite alot of fanfare but that slowly fizzled and died.Jump to post
Yep, in fact it's far higher. LHR to JFK is the biggest EU to US route and 2nd largest EU to non EU route, only behind LHR - DXB Maybe, if BA changed certain strategies and had more/bigger LH aircraft LHRDXB would be number 2 or even lower as most of the LHRDXB traffic is going on to XXX. More like...Jump to post
They would need to hire a lot of pilots before they can expand as JL has a pilot shortage.Jump to post
As per the article, JAL is facing a pilot shortage and there are not enough pilots to supplement a freighter fleet at the moment. Hopefully things will change as we get closer to 2020. Any guesses on what JAL would operate for their freighter fleet? Mine would be A330F or a converted 767F. I do not ...Jump to post
Source: http://www.asiacargonews.com/en/news/detail?id=2313 Really looking forward to seeing JAL re-enter the freighter market once again. Granted its going to be on a ACMI basis. Overall, its a strong growth indicator for surplus uplift as the demand into Japan will continue for the next olympics.Jump to post

Is it me or does WFS have a monoply with cargo handling in JFK? I know Dnata is on the rise for ra...Jump to post
Maybe Proctor and Gamble sells a lot of products in Asia. Maybe they MAKE a lot of products in Asia, and ship them to CVG. I think the two biggest reasons why CVG has so much capacity are DHL and Amazon. Both now operate express hubs out of CVG. That's not to say that SQ's freight goes directly to ...Jump to post
They have 36 gates in t8. Concourse c is really large. I never got the sense flying out of t8 that they couldn't fit in more flights. I'm not saying that AA couldn't fit any more flights into T8, but T8 cannot fit another nine departures between 1830 and 2300 (not even counting Iberia, QANTAS and s...Jump to post
Regarding T7, keep in mind that B6 has asked for proposals to build a new T6 and, potentially, integrate T7 in such proposals. I think we'll hear more about this over the next few months. If AA really is downgrading its presence maybe there will be room for BA at T8 at some point. Do you know if B6...Jump to post
Really excited about the new cargo facility which will replace Buildings 261 and 260. The last time JFK has a seen a brand spanking new building would be when Building 23 and 21 were built. I know the master plan is to have all the facilties consolidated in Cargo Area D. What will happen to cargo ar...Jump to post
Yes there is no doubt it will. They currently haul over 700 tonnes a month out of PER. In comparison EK hauls not much more and that’s with 2 daily flights. A lot of the cargo that goes out of PER is fresh food, there is normally 4 pallets of meat as well which comes from MEL, perhaps that will get...Jump to post
I wonder if this will affect QR’s cargo operation into PER.Jump to post
Does anybody know when QR will accept the A350-1000?Jump to post
https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/governor-cuomo-announces-first-phase-modernization-air-cargo-operations-jfk Granted the old LH and KE buildings were both iconic in the JFK Cargo scene.

4. QR still has morning flight from T7...still not sure why AA controls the ramp/gate space in terminal 8. When the AM flight started. AA could not facilitate them when they had already comitted to other carriers or their own ops during the QR AM flight start up. That was the story I was told by so...Jump to post

AA’s MO is just to be a belly carrier and not a combination one. AA cargo prides itself as a specialist belly carrier with connectivity between Europe/Asia and South America. Besides investing in freighter ops is very expensive and there are more headaches involved for so little return on the invest...Jump to post

Interesting one for PIT, possibly getting DOH before LHR. As for LAS, I'm not sure how this route will work operationally in summer, given the hot n' high conditions. QR has already announced PIT with cargo flights That makes sense since PIT has a huge operation with FedEx. Fedex Express is in PIT ...Jump to post
