New Routes For 2001

Sun Sep 24, 2000 12:32 am

What major routes do the major airlines plan to initiate in 2001? We've already heard US PHL-AMS, CO EWR-HKG, UA ORD-Shanghai, but are there any others that you've heard from your airline that they plan to start?

...and which they don't  (No offence)

AR's new routes are :LHR,MXP,ZRH,CDG any others??

The EZE-LHR is going to be operated with their 742, starts 30th of this month. Looks to be quite popular, although stops in MAD and GRU.

BA shall continue to compete with their 744 from LGW-EZE non-stop.

I do believe that UA will start IAD-CPH and rumors persist of UA starting IAD-TGL. Also some possible new routes from the US to LHR, depending on the progress or lack of in the US/UK open skies talks.

Bonjour AF,

What are AF using to RUH?? I was boarding my 777 to LHR, and noticed an AF tail, at the gate next to ours. Such was the sandstorm activity, that I couldn't id. the a/c. Was it an Airbus?? You were two hours late!! 
Oh la la c'est trop deux heures, c'est trop!

SR,

AR's destinations do not include ZRH, however the pull-down destinations menu does feature Zurich. It's probably a code-share with SR's MD-11, which stops in Sao Paulo en-route.

Airliner World did state however, that ZRH was on AR's list of target destinations.

It seems not....   You never know with AR..

Sawubona Capt.Picard !

I am in Johannesburg at the moment and did read the fact that your father was on the BA flight to CPT and connecting to LAD.
You do know that we have a nonstop CDG-LAD flight codeshared with TAAG on our 777-200IGW ! You should tell your dad to use it ! Does he fly Business Class or First ?
About our RUH flight, it is the A310 that operate to all middle-east destinations.
I do agree that 2 hours is a long delay but we are having a lot of problems with our A310's. That's why it is time for them to retire and be replaced by the A330-200 from next year. The last A310 and B767 will be out of the fleet by 2003 and will all be replaced by the A330-200 featuring the l'Espace Premiere, l'Espace Affaires and Tempo products.

Happy Flying,

AF Cabin Crew.

Great to hear you AF, I'm down in CPT in on the 8thDec.
Whilst at JNB, we stayed with friends, but there's a great shopping centre at Sandton (it's also a hotel); go there, it's quite nice. There's also Gold Reef City, take the mine shaft, that's quite a nice place for the afternoon.

My father was on FIRST, because he was doing Company business. No worry's AF, we are flying AF to LAD a few days before the 8thDec!! We'll be flying from BHX, and change at CDG.

Some of my father's collegues take this flight, others fly with TAP A340. There are others who will only fly with BA via CPT   (They fly SA from LAD)

I'm really looking forward to it, although I have flown AF744 between SCL-EZE 2 years ago.

Salut!
Picard.

Sawubona Capt.Picard !

Thank you for your information about JNB but I should tell you that I have a house here with my partner and It has been 3 years that I have been flying between CDG and JNB.
I took on the route airlines like AF (of course), SA, BA, VS and SN.
I know the city rather well and our house is 7 minutes by car from Sandton-City, we stay in Morningside.
No offence,

Take Care,

AF Cabin Crew.

Varig 777?

Mon Sep 25, 2000 2:57 am

Hey Everyone,
I know that VARIG Brasil was thinking of purchasing some 777 I think back in '97/'98 but then fell on some hard financial times. Does anybody here know if VARIG is planning on purchasing this aircraft? Maybe leasing it, although I doubt anyone would want to lease their favourite airplane. Please respond.

PIA is pulling out of some stations starting with its new winter schedule to be out soon, so i doubt it if theyll add places like Madrid and Johannesburg to their network.

RE: Routes 2000

Mon Sep 25, 2000 3:53 am

About ten days ago, an annual conference, called Routes, took place in Amsterdam, where airlines and airport operators got together and spoke to each other about, well, new routes. Schedules and slots for next Summer are usually organised by November, so we will start to hear a lot more about this then.

However, I have heard rumours about Aer Lingus being interested in San Jose and Dallas, although this will require a change in the Irish bilateral with the US, which thanks to the best efforts of the Irish government, is heavily stacked against Ireland.

However, the big news I'm hoping for is that some major Middle or Far Eastern carrier - Emirates (which seems most likely) or Malaysia - will begin services to Dublin.

Hey Sju-LAX,

Great info, thats exciting about all the boston-carribean work. Curious about Turks and Caicos thogh. Whats the reason for all the expansion? It used to be like twice weekly from JFK. Now you say it'll be added to LAX and EWR? Care to elaborate.

Hey Chieftan, whats your say on this?
