This video from the Taiwanese Pilot Union illustrates pretty well what HK based crewmembers are currently experiencing. Taiwan has been rougher, to be sure, but not by much at this point. Kids kicked out of school because a parent is crew. Crew and family not getting necessary medical care. The lis...Jump to post
Looks great! Thank you for writing!Jump to post
Hey this is a nice trip report!
I look forward to fly United soon
This looks exactly like my flight with them last year on EWR-TXL. Their tatl eco product is competitive. Looking forward for your next TR.Jump to post
UA is putting diverted EWR passengers onto buses and driving them up to EWR. From IAD? Why not? We're talking about 4hours driving, aren't we? I'd easily rather be on the road on a bus than stuck on tarmac or airport terminal with no clue about when I'd be able to leave. I'm confident many travelle...Jump to post
Oh! I did not realize that the 789 order were planned replacements for 767s! I was under the impression that all the new orders, and the 78-10 were incremental fleet growth- and that seemed like a lot of seats added to the sky in relatively short time. (At least to me, but I consider myself far les...Jump to post
ANNOUNCEMENT: There was a cable line problem near me and I don’t have internet to my PC as a result, so I can’t process the changes for the 6/2/2019 edition. It appears they have to dig something up, so it may/will be later in the week before I can post an update. Thank you for the heads up! I hope...Jump to post
it'll also bring other benefits to CM operations, like the same crew can come back on the same plane for short runs ie PTY-MIA-PTY and not have to overnight in order to get a flight the next day. Also, even if PTY offers it CM doesnt have to abide by it, they can decide not to use the preclearance....Jump to post
I don't understand why EWR gets so much criticism in a.net and flyertalk. In september I made a connection there (from Terminal B to Terminal C) in less than 2hrs and it was a blast. I really like the natural lighting in Terminal C.
It would be better if the USA can make I to I connections easier.
DGME has announced that they're expanding exit passport control at SJO and LIR. They made the press release on Facebook. SJO will increase exit passport control booths from 10 to 16 and LIR from 4 to 8. They also announced that during the day, they'll shift personnel between inbound immigration and...Jump to post
United and EWR always get bad press and reputation, whenever something fails with them I think that UA really made a good job in this storm. They shut down in Thursday, but since Friday are running a "normal" operation. It is better to shut down and try later, than have planes and crews al...Jump to post
Nobody noticed that UA added SFO-BDL?
That was a long-awaited route. We'll be checking if it is a red eye with a morning arrival, or a day flight.
I like what UA is doing at SFO.
This happened in my home airport (PTY) and it was awful, but just for 6hr. That was enough to cancel ops at Copa for the rest of the day. I can't imagine how difficult it would be for the busiest airport in the world. DL should just cancel for the rest of the day and try again tomorrow. Apaga y vámo...Jump to post
Volaris Costa Rica is planning three new routes in 2018: Q6 SJO-MIA Q6 SJO-LAX Q6 SJO-NYC Regards. Is it me, or these guys are avoiding and ignoring PTY? PTY/BLB is ripe,ready and eager for new competition. If they can make transfers available at SJO, they'll stimulate demand. I'm sick & tired ...Jump to post
From October 21th, Wingo ax its BLB-SJO route
Really hope Viva Air or Volaris step in, I'm sick and tired of Copa Holdings quasi monopoly in Panama.
Since three hours ago, PTY is without electricity, so airlines can't process departing passengers. The first Copa departing bank (7am) hasnt left the airport, and UA morning flights are planned to depart at 1pm More to come http://m.prensa.com/economia/Aeropuerto-internacional-Tocumen-fluido-electri...Jump to post

We got a memo today stating UA90/1 EWR-TLV-EWR switches to B77W from 5/5/17 (First Trans Atlantic route for the 77W?) Now the question becomes how does the 77W rotate into EWR. Will it be a standalone aircraft, or will it rotate from SFO non stop, HKG, or TLV The SFOEWR gets in at 9pm. UA90 leaves ...Jump to post

I have more questions: 1: I have seen the video/fly through a few times. Will the 772's (or other) get that beautiful mid-flight service walk-through sections? Or will that just fit on a 777W? 2: When a 772 gets wheeled in for the refit: New Business Class seats, new bulkheads and walls, 10 across ...Jump to post
I would take United Airlines, just for the convenience of a short transit at EWR.

I'm really confused. Most, if not all of SQ Long Haul operations, lose money. And they want to compete head to head with UA in this route.
Well, let's see who blinks first. If I were them, I would have started first SIN-LAX. The market is bigger, I think, and has no competitors.

It seems that Argentinian Aviation is getting liberalized with the new Argentinian Govt
Adding to what IAHWorldflyer says, it doesnt affect profits, but liquidity.
In cash, they would have 100m less, that affect cashflow, but in the paper they would see less cost because it would be only depreciation cost.
BUT, if you are in a rainy year, you will prefer to have the cash in hand. .

In my country they can do it in two ways.
Let say, Ana Gonzalez marry Juan Rodriguez.
She can decide to use Ana de Rodriguez, Ana Rodriguez or even Ana Gonzalez de Rodriguez.
or simply continue with their Ana Gonzalez name.
