If the cause of diversion is medical or weather related, I'm not sure there's a place where that info is published. I suppose for weather, you could check the destination airport's weather and assume if it's bad enough for an aircraft to divert somewhere else. For anything mechanical or serious, che...Jump to post

And remember it's still bus between London Heathrow and Gatwick and Tokyo Narita and Haneda, both airports with far more connections. Not to derail the argument but NRT and HND are connected by one train line. Trains between HND and NRT fairly infrequent. And it's hardly one line. Its a number of l...Jump to post
It was MEL/AKL/ORD and it was canned because of the GFC. It was MEL-LAX-ORD in 2003. No way a 744ER was doing AKL-ORD with a viable load or ORD-AKL more the issue. QF were going to do AKL-DFW around the same time when they got the 744ER though a regular 744 could have done it to with less freight, ...Jump to post
There's no poor planning on anyones part as there is a lot more involved than just measuring a distance. Other factors include how each airline operates its aircraft, weights, pax numbers, the schedule and yes planned routings.Jump to post
I can't remember how, but I managed to get a pretty cheap deal with LH on BRE-FRA-NYC/BOS-FRA-BRE, something like €300. The last FRA-BRE leg was overbooked so I took the voluntary bump and got €250 back. All up, 50€. Maybe not the "cheapest" flight, but by distance and service I'd say its ...Jump to post

It just doesn't make sense. All of the places you've mentioned can be accessed via TYO. Think of the other end too. This flight also would only really cater to SEA and it's regional catchment traffic, as passengers to/from anywhere else in North America will simply travel on other flights via TYO or...Jump to post

The only major city in Western Europe missing EK is HEL. Berlin just called. They want to have a chat. Berlin is not allowed due to maxed out bilateral agreements between UAE and Germany.

6576107 First ex-SilkAir 737 (was 9V-MGI) now in VA colors as VH-IWQ. I assume she still has to have its interior changed to VA standard in BNE. Interestingly, it looks like there is no name for her as yet. Did they just paint the tail and add decals? There’s a noticeable difference in the white on...Jump to post
I’m surprised SYD-SIN hasn’t been brought forward to November. With Singapore easing border restrictions for fully vaccinated passengers, it seems like a logical add 3x weekly alongside LHR and LAX. Singapore has not yet established a VTL (Vaccinated Travel Lane) with Australia. Hence no news regar...Jump to post

My longest narrowbody flight would be Brisbane-Perth on a QF B738.
As much as they want to do it, I don’t think the balance sheet can handle a 737 replacement order and an A350 order right now. Bear in mind that the 737 replacement order will according to Qantas involve a staged spend-and-delivery program spread over a decade, so this won't be one massive hit to t...Jump to post

I assume the cabin crew on DRW-LHR will be the LHR based crew who previously did QF9 between PER and LHR. Wasn’t that base closed? I thought all LHR and AKL crew were made redundant? Was there a CHC base too? Doubt there are many (100 or so) QAL crew left - only QCCD and QCCA. If that’s the case, h...Jump to post

. . . not sure what numbering was used for the old Fiesta route to LHR through Mexico and Bermuda.

With SQ's current short haul and regional route network, there is no route that the B737NG and B737Max cannot operate. Longer routes will just be operated by A359/ B78X. Almost. Most (if not all) of eastern Australia has now gone to regional eqp for SQ. As stated, it's 78X and A359 (9V-SH* regional...Jump to post
