I recall Delta used to have an Atlanta-Dakar flight some years ago, what happened to it? The actual flight was ATL DKR JNB. I remember flying that loooooong route on a 764. For a while DKR served as a connecting point with the short lived DL JFK-DKR-CPT flight. This June 2009 piece from FlightGloba...Jump to post

NYC, whether it being EWR or JFK is a large part of almost any large carriers operation. ET is no exception to this. While I find that ET has not been to successful with either airport in NYC (yeah, the loads were only in the 50-60%’s for July), should ET consolidate to one airport? EWR an UA hub a...Jump to post
Definitely futuristic. Not sure I like it, though. The headrest looks like it would be really annoying if I were flying with someone or wanted to look out the window, both of which I do often. But those PTVs look great. Yessss!!! Finally no need for small talk with my neighbor! In all seriousness, ...Jump to post

We may need a diversion megathread. But if we get one, we need another megathread questioning why we need a diversion megathread.
...Can we wait a few more hours or couple days till we know what really happened that prompted the pilots to do what they did? Nope. That's against the rules.

Interesting, especially since KLM apparently still has a lot of these triangular routes, thanks for the information I may be completely wrong, its been awhile, but I believe, at least at the time, that both LH and KL, and British Midland (who used to fly an a321 to ADD via CAI) could not offer non ...Jump to post
CDG-TLN-CDG will be axed starting the winter schedule.
AF has just announced ORY-GVA for the winter season
Before discontinuing the route a few years ago KL flew their A332 to ADD via KRT. At first it was a triangular route AMS-KRT-ADD-AMS. Then it became AMS-KRT-ADD and back the same way it came. I must say as a passenger, the triangular route felt easier. The stop in KRT at Midnight on the return to Eu...Jump to post
Regarding Africa: I am wondering, and I know it is just a speculation at this stage, what would happen to the premium cabins on these news narrow bodies.

Atlanta is much hotter than Detroit. The aircraft could experience sudden temperature changes going from the very warm southern US (ATL) into a freezing polar environment. These sudden temp fluctuations could possibly compromise aircraft structure. Have you ever flown into Los Angles in the winter?...Jump to post

Well AF is a lowcost-tier airline anyway with their horrible 777-300ER's it will be less confusing for their customers if the too good Superjumbo's are not there to make some uncomfortable comparisons. Which configuration of their 77W have you been on to make such a statement? the COI ones? Did AF ...Jump to post
Although I understand what you are talking about, I think you should be more generic in referring to the seats; I.e. a window seat on the left side of the aircraft or a window seat on the right side of the aircraft. On some aircraft configurations, a D seat is an aisle seat; sometimes it is a middl...Jump to post
Hello all, I have done a brief search and have not found a thread dedicated to this topic.

I know B6 is already on it, but that doesn't seem to stop DL, quite the contrary actually.

1). Is there any chance the A340 might be replaced by i.e. a regular AF A332 / A359 / B777 by then?

Good evening from sunny San Diego! All fingers and toes crossed here for a DL/AF/KL SAN-CDG/AMS link (3x weekly 332??) :) Reading all the posts above, it does indeed sound like DL AUS-CDG is the most serious contender.

Does the 767-300ER have enough range to fly from SAN to CDG? Maybe Delta could start seasonal service to CDG with the 767-300ER. Does Delta still operate a hub at CDG?

I was surprised to see that AF is now down to once daily CDG-TLN vs the 2 daily since inauguration. I have flown the route many times and the flights were packed and often more expensive than the ORY alternative. Why they are now down to One per day from CDG? Régional Fleet shortage? Probably yes!!...Jump to post

Toulon is getting some traction lately, also with new flights to CDG (double daily) and CPH.

With AF announcing CDG SEA for summer 2018, and no word here of DL ending the route on their own metal, does this mean 2x CDG SEA in S18? Really ?

I always wondered why AF's inter-Caribbean A320 service uses MIA as there US port of entry. Could this twice weekly ATL new service be testing the water before switching all flights to ATL? Or is this a response to DY? On a side note I will be on the MIA - PTP flights in October for my honeymoon!! :)Jump to post
Thanks all for your knowledgable input. I always saw the switch from CDG to ORY that flybe for AF did on the LCY route many years ago as an attempt to connect LCY to the rest of France. The Eurostar is hands down the clear winner on the LON - PAR axis for sure. Maybe the CDG TGV station also plays a...Jump to post
I sent a tweet to AF about this and the silence was deafening. What is the world coming to when a major corporation doesn't respond to random tweets questioning their business decisions? Will this madness never end? What a lovely tone to your oh so useful input. AF is usually very quick and courteo...Jump to post
Hello all, I cannot seem to understand why AF dropped out completely of the Paris to LCY market. Orly connected not only Paris but the AF domestic network to LCY.

Echo the sentiment of Row 2 vs. 1, flew the 75S up front last year JFK-LAX and had a nice ride in 2A. Only drawback is you will need your seatmate to be accommodating in letting you out to use the lav, should the need arise, as there is no direct aisle access for the A & D seats. Thanks for the...Jump to post
Not having actually flown this route with Delta, I can't comment on what the service is like onboard. However, I'd actually recommend Seat 2A instead of 1A. It's nice to have that extra bit of distance between the forward galley and your seat, because sometimes noise from the galley can be a little...Jump to post
