Japanese highly unlikely slot constraints at Narita even for services to the world Majors .
They Should have shot a few protestors and built a full size 2nd runway their and as for Kansai well it'll be at the bottom of the ocean in 18 month time !
(Just joking nothing again the Japanese at all )
As others have said QF
WON"T be back whilst BA
own a quarter and that's very sad !
I posted on an earlier forum regarding them and its really MUST be BAs doing what and all coz they COULD simply bring the Frankfurt flight to Manchester if they wanted to (This spends around 16 hours parked their every day then BA
fly the QF
KNOW that North West passengers DON'T want to transfer through that great and easy transfer (NOT) airport that is Heathrow.
So Oneworld continue to loose traffic to Emirates/Singapore/Malaysia every day !
Good ol' BA
supporting Britain ha !
or should that be BA
the national airline of the 51 State of America ?
Bermuda two aside you'd certainly think so with around 20 US cities served every day from Heathrow/Gatwick oh and BA1502 !
Many rumors regards CX
return in 2005 we'll have to wait and see !
A West Coast US service possible but their are through flights by US FROM SFO
On the long haul what do others think about THAI to Bangkok possible?
South African did express an interest to return last year but nothing heard recently anyone have an update on their intentions which seem to have swung back on Mainland Europe Milan etc....
Does any one know for sure whether Malev are definitely returning as their web site still shows the code shares through Amsterdam.
Within Europe the scheduled network really is nearing completion of All viable routes.
Does anyone see Austrian returning YES/No especially since BAcx have started their own services?
How about JAT perhaps in 2005 to Tivat ?
Any chance of El-Al returning in the near future?
Still the LCCs have room to expand taking traffic from the charter/IT markets
New routes anyone perhaps Marseille not served since Dan Air days, Bilbao,
Nante Dinard Las Palmas Furteventura Madeira for instance.
How about Morocco or Tunisia or the return of Egyptair (No they have cut services to 14 routes mostly in mainland Europe !)
On the domestic front the only hole to be plugged when Air Southwest start will be Newcastle.
Seems Cardiff/North West just isn't viable Air Wales/BAcx etc just can't make it pay !
Otherwise that leaves Exeter as possible.
Any thoughts !
