Re: WOW Air Ongoing Developments Discussion Thread

Just to be clear, since I haven’t been following Icelandair during this pandemic and things may have been lost in translation, the US people who bought WOW’s brand (not the former WOW executives trying to start PLAY) are planning/trying to buy into Icelandair?[/quote] That’s right.

Re: Rumour: BRU Getting US Pre-Clearance - Possible New Routes

I highly doubt that this will lead to more US service. BRU has traditionally been a smaller TATL market as it just really doesn't have the same tourist appeal as say AMS or MAD, and a number of services have come/gone over the years. Current BRU-US service: SN: JFK/ORD DL: ATL/JFK UA: ORD/EWR/IAD A...

Re: F9 Could Use A321XLR Order for Transatlantic

I would be surprised if they chose to go via KEF. Costs are high and the weather, particular during their long winter season, is quite bad. I would think they would pick a lower cost market in Europe, with higher traffic volumes. N.E. United States to Ireland may be a route that they could pack solid.
