Re: Why JAL has fewer international destinations than ANA?

To me the current government favoritism of ANA over JAL is a bit shortsighted. My understanding is a lot of JALs expansion of routes in the 1970 - 1990 period were a direct influence of government “recommendations”. Flying to GRU and MEX come to mind here. So I think its a bit vindictive of the gove...

Re: KLM starts AUS S20

While I am thrilled to see my home airport get more transatlantic service, I confess that I am concerned that this may be a case of too much, too soon. What are the chances that overcapacity might lead to two or more TATL carriers throwing up their hands and abandoning the market? If we lose LHR se...

Re: Ethiopian drop LAX

Maybe Royal Air Maroc can give LAX a 787 flught to CMN. Totally doable payload range wise. Then LAX would truly be in the six continents club. Only makes sense if there are good onward Africa connections from CMN.
