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. Really? Has the ME3 caught on yet? If they depart ...Jump to post

If you're originating in Tokyo, its easier to take a Shinkansen within a 2-2.5 hour radius. Usually prices and travel times point to point (if you count check in times, travel out to he airport etc) are the same. Anything further would be best to fly. If you're originating from outside Japan, flying...Jump to post
You dont have to be travelling on a single ticket, but the airline flying you to China might be hesitant. I flew EK FRA-DXB-PVG, then QF PVG-SYD 5 hours later. EK was not too happy with that, called the station manager, called QF, and agreed that if I check in online (for QF) in FRA before checking ...Jump to post
Does AC or WS codeshare with PIA? No. You have to buy two seperate flight tickets and that can be extremely risky considering there could be delays due to weather, aircraft not good for service, etc. I mean some drive down to SEA, some fly AS to SEA from YVR and then take the EK flight, some even b...Jump to post
Delta is still recruiting Singapore based staff, so that gives some hope that it'll be around for a while longer. What type of staff? Is it for the positions that handle flight operations? Or are they office-based customer service positions? If it's the first, then yes...SIN will still be flown to ...Jump to post

The point of NZ flying to NYC is… SYD/MEL/BNE/ADL/PER/CNS-AKL-NYC as well as all of New Zealand. NZ has great Australian connections at AKL where transiting is very easy. There are a lot of other places to connect to get to Australia No one wants to sit on a long flight like that to connect. This f...Jump to post
So at this point, any major international airline which doesn't serve JFK has a huge hole in their route map. When can we see Air New Zealand starting nonstop service to JFK from Auckland? Define 'major'? AC and UA are pretty major I'd say but has a huge hole without JFK? Why is this thread specifi...Jump to post
As mentioned above Y seems popular on EK415. It was recently announced that First and Business Class passengers booked on EK415 would get a free night at Rydges. Perhaps the loads weren't too good in those classes, and the hotel stay is a way of tempting more First and Business pax onto EK415. https...Jump to post
Just a side note, the JFK-FRA-SIN-EWR routing would be better to get the real RTW experience. Don't do the reverse as you mentioned as an option. SIN-EWR crosses the Pacific, but EWR-SIN crosses the Atlantic, which you would do twice if you went EWR-SIN-FRA-JFK.
Enjoy the trip!
Cargo attributes for luggage piece above 32 kgs.
If you have 2 pieces of luggage each one 22 , that is not Cargo.
Please read a bit more
The reason you were charged at that rate is because anything over your allowance is technically cargo, and cargo rates are high! A lot higher than entitled passenger rates. I took a quick look at FedEx with the same criteria and they are charging $1044. Qatar Airways seems quite reasonable for the e...Jump to post

I’d imagine JNB and HND getting the A380 above any of those you mentioned. HND can take it in night hours when QF operate. And JNB probably at slightly reduced frequency 4-5 weekly in winter 5-7 weekly in summer. Anything new BNE-US I’m quite sure will be 789 be it DFW/ORD/SFO. HND won't happen as ...Jump to post

One-off A380 QF5 SYD-SIN-LHR scheduled for May26. No obvious return. Possible positioning flight for first refurb It certainly looks like it, also with an interesting schedule in SIN (0515 arrival, 1000 departure), obviously to meet the schedule needs in both ends and to escape from the curfew.

This kind of flight timing is pretty common around the world, even for a 3 hr flight. BA237 might be appealing to business travellers on a tight schedule. But it returns as BA236, departing DME at 5:30ish and getting back to LHR around 7:00, which would connect pax onto Trans-Atlantic flights. That'...Jump to post
I recently looked at flights from DEL to HND. MU had two options. 1) DEL-PVG-PEK-PVG-HND, or 2) DEL-PVG-HND. The DEL-PVG and PVG-HND flight was the same for both options, yet option 2 had a 13 hour layover and was $105 more!Jump to post
It's extremely high yielding, huge O&D demand, unlimited traffic rights, plenty of spare aircraft to fly it... No idea why QF doesn't fly itJump to post
UA857, airlines cant just fly anywhere they want, when they want, or fly between hubs just cause its a hub. Or even hub to city routes. There are certain regulations, restrictions and economics to running an airline.Jump to post
With HND I imagine we will see something similar to the BNE-LAX route. Switch the current QF25/QF26 to a B789, and add SYD-TYO 3x weekly to closely match Y capacity (perhaps A330). Around that time we might see SYD-SCL (moved to daily) going to the B789 to operate SYD-SCL-SYD-HND-SYD which would cou...Jump to post

I'd have to say the 77W. I used to live a stones-throw away from IST, and when the winds were blowing the right way I could hear the GE90's start up from the lounge room. It was the only sounds we'd hear from the airport and it was absolute music to my ears!Jump to post
Is there any Airline that confirmed a dedicated lounge in the new airport ? in addition to the alliances lounges. Surely EK will open a new lounge at the new airport.

And in regard to this, I have always found the schedule of the IST GRU EZE flight to be an outlier in the grand scheme of the TK operation.

If I recall correctly, LATAM B787 flights to AKL and MEL operate with ETOPS 330? When QF replaces the B744 with the new 6x B789, will it also be certified by CASA at ETOPS 330? If so, that means SYD-JNB could operate pretty well too? What could happen with capacity for the HND flight? Could we see d...Jump to post
