Flights operated by an airline whose country of origin is not related to the flight’s origin or destination country". I noticed PIA's MAN-JFK fifth-freedom service was missing, tickets are now sold on this sector, although they were not in the past.
Thanks for mentioning this. From what I understand, this service only stops at MAN
westbound, the eastbound leg being a nonstop JFK
-Pakistan. So, while the global transatlantic picture is slightly affected by this, it shouldn't be included in the analysis since it only takes eastbound traffic into account. But thanks for the suggestion anyway.
|Quoting slinky09 (Reply 7):|
are you including say codeshare flights in the Delta analysis for example
No, code shares are not included, only flights by operating carrier.

Made me laugh at the thought of 7 or 8 hours in a F50!
Lol! 3 hours in a F50, like Air Iceland's Narssarssuaq - Reykjavik "transatlantic" service is already a long time in a Fokker...
|Quoting BNAOWB (Reply 12):|
The daytime Royal Air Maroc flight (AT 203 JFK-CMN 9:05 - 21:30) is quite interesting since it is only non-LHR flight among the 10 daytime eastbound transatlantic flights. To my surprise, it appears that a large number of late connections (departing between 22:30 and 1:30) are available at CMN to airports such as Agadir, Bamako, Banjul, Bissau, Cotonou, Dakar, Fes, Lagos, Lome, Marrakech, Monrovia, Niamey, Tangier, etc.
203 is seasonal (June 17th through September 7th), but connections to the destinations you mention are sold on both the daylight and redeye JFK
flights during AT203's operating period. However, to find those connections, one has to use the online booking engine on RAM's website, since their own official PDF timetable does not mention AT203. After September 7th, connections to those destinations require the long transit at CMN
(morning arrival from JFK
, evening departure to the final destination).
It would be interesting to have insight into the proportion of connecting pax on board those flights.

A small suggestion: In the table "Top airports with transatlantic service by number of seats offered (one-way)" (pg. 16)
I found myself adding up the figures for the three cities with two transatlantic airports (JFK/EWR, LHR/LGW, and CDG/ORY) to get what is arguably a more comprehensive view of the transatlantic traffic. Could that table be revised some day to "Top Cities with transatlantic service...", listing the multi-airport cities with their airports' traffic added together?
Thanks for the suggestion! I'll include this into my transpacific analysis (soon to be released) and will possibly retrofit it into the transatlantic analysis.
|Quoting normie999 (Reply 15):|
Daytime flights: you could add FI612 and FI634 - to KEF from JFK and BOS respectively
You are right. Those flights are included in the analysis, but I forgot to add them to the daytime flight table. Thank you for mentioning this.

Just a small correction on page 15 of the PDF file - OS is also operating the B772 transatlantic and not only the B763
Thank you for pointing it out. I will correct this in the PDF as soon as possible.
Thank you everyone for your comments
