Who is EK, KE, and QR gonna fly to the USA? AFAIK, most people (non-Americans) are still banned from entering the USA. It's not quite like that. Manny countries are not on the "banned" list. Notably, all of Asia with the exception of China and Iran. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nc...Jump to post
I had TK BOS-IST-DAC tickets in August second week for the family. Got texts today that the reservations are canceled :headache: At the same time, just read on the national dailies in Bangladesh that TK requested to resume operations from July 1 ... :roll: Not sure if TK made an early decision to NO...Jump to post
Hopefully BOS returns. That was a solid performer for TK. I am sure it will return. As of now, TK planing to reinstate USA flights last, probably beginning of September. I have a LAX-IST round trip in August which has already been rescheduled 3 times. I really hope TK will start at least some of th...Jump to post

On Sunday they inaugurated the special pandemic hospital on former airport grounds. The 125,000 square meter facility has 1,008-bed capacity. Are these guys wizards or something - how did they make it so fast and that too with landscaping all around and nicely paved parking lots?!! Wish the hospita...Jump to post
Emirates feeling bullish - re-start 6/1 daily straight in with the 380, their previous filing was a 773. B6 - 7 weekly SJU and 2 weekly STT AZ - no time frame yet CX - no time frame yet AA - LHR moved to 10/24 daily 772 JAL - cancelled as of today, no time frame for return DL - all routes currently...Jump to post
Is there any website who is compiling when the flight restrictions may be lifted or when individual airlines may be restarting flights?
I am looking for: when international airlines are planning to restart their BOS services - frequency, aircraft, etc? Thanks in advance.

How is the situation in Istanbul? Are people panicking like here in the US? I am supposed to fly LAX-IST on 3/21 and return back home on 3/27.

I think to Asia, it's going to be down across the board this year. Not a lot of people are going to want to go to HK or Singapore right now when half of the population are wearing masks. My guess is CX will be reduced in the coming month. KE will undo their equipment upgrade and JL will downgrade e...Jump to post
Interesting. So the UAE is like the Switzerland of the Middle East. They did team up with Saudi Arabia and others to blockade Qatar though. One of the reasons for this blockade was Qatar's ties to Iran My :twocents: UAE used to be like the Switzerland of the Middle East. Qatar too. Focused on busin...Jump to post

Asian powerhouses (Japan, China, Korea) are getting connected to the Far East Russian energy transmission lines from Siberia. The first projects just came online - a lot of business transactions will resume - the visa relaxation policies must be closely related to this as well.Jump to post
I think DAC is 2 class B77W so it will be interesting to see the A380 in 2 class config offloading +600pax in 1 flight at DAC airport, DAC is not exactly the most efficient airport in the world so I am not sure if they could handle that. The waiting lounge for the flight is no even half of the size...Jump to post
Does EK ever consider DAC as a potential for the A380? According to Airbus, DAC is capable. https://www.airbus.com/aircraft/passenger-aircraft/a380/airlines-destinations/airport-compatibility.html Thoughts? The airfield maybe very capable ... but the facilities inside (gates, gate lounges, the hall...Jump to post
Has such an arrangement occurred in the past? Anyone know? Seems rather efficient to me. SIN-IAH is longer than SIN-EWR by about 400 miles ... seems unlikely ... is IAH really the Mecca of oil industry these days?

15 737 MAX for ALC (the already cancelled 3 earlier this year with their 1st 787 order) and 2 787 for Biman. So that would mean 4 more cancellations, all 737. The single MAX order could also be a order transfer. Biman signed a deal to purchase the two 789s ... but no further details are available, ...Jump to post
Looks like the agreement was signed ... but no details available!

Remember the bread and butter of SQ is business/first class passengers which make the flight sustainable. I bet its probably USA instead of Canada as Canada is mostly VFR and not much business travel (same reason they chose SEA over YVR for Microsoft, Amazon, etc.). Chicago has the 2nd highest numb...Jump to post
Congrats to BOS on yet another TATL add! :thumbsup: Just the other day, I was thinking we don't still have any Eastern European service and if LOT will add Boston at some point ... and here comes Austrian!!!

Similar times for the current JL BOS flights would be as follows I think: dep NRT 12:10p arr BOS 4:20p (2:50 stop @ BOS) dep BOS 7:10p arr HND 11:20p dep HND 5:10p arr BOS 3:45p (2:45 stop @ BOS) dep BOS 6:30p arr NRT 5:05p That 11:20p arrival at HND would be problematic -- transit would be shut do...Jump to post

I didn't take his comment as a rumor. More like a prediction since the A350 (and 787) will become the predominant long haul aircraft just about everywhere. Absolutely ... loving the onslaught of the 787s so far ... please bring some A350s too! :P Just flew BOS-MAD-BOS on DY ... first time on the 78...Jump to post
So OSL + LGW and JFK,LAX and BOS for long haul? I'm interested to see if they'll increase the flights a day between MAD and OSL/LGW. More likely they'll cancel their long haul operations out of Madrid as well, funneling that traffic through Gatwick. I hope they don't do it in the next 3 weeks ... I...Jump to post
The talk on this forum about B6's still-to-be-commenced yet guaranteed TATL dominance out of BOS is really getting to be a bit much; the bolded comment is especially a doozy. B6 may very well build a strong TATL presence out of BOS; they are the strongest carrier in the domestic market out of BOS, ...Jump to post
So much for the much rumored BOS-BCN and BOS-TLV routes, however unlikely these additions would have been. I dont think Delta is done with international expansion at BOS by a long shot. They got a lot more coming. I feel the same. Yesterday was, in a way, a formal expansion of the TATL portfolio .....Jump to post
The gates I believe will be ready for next week, given the state of readiness I saw in my photos, a lot of it is wiring the computers in and stuff, but the infrastructure should be ready.

Overreaction...it was INERT and all the firing mechanisms had been removed. We bring back empty canon shells from the desert on deployment all the time and no one bats an eyelash.

Are you thinking that due to repeated landings, the pressure on earth will make it go down a bit.
