Re: San Diego Thread 2016-2017

LAX is just a couple of hours away (on a good day ) up on the I-5 or I-405 . Fares would need to be much higher and load factors have to be ~85%+ consistently for the venture to be profitable. As much as I wanted to see PAL serving SAN, but from what I hear, JAL is taking care of the Manila-bound p...

Re: San Diego Thread 2016-2017

I read that thread,and it really sounds intriguing. Especially when Hainan wants to
use AS as a codeshare partner. We can cross out SJC, since Hainan already serves
SJC. I'm guessing SAN, because it's an AS focus city, and PDX, because it's an AS hub.
