Right now I imagine a lot of people are scrambling to change future reservations to avoid transferring in HKG. DL’s SEA-HKG flight would be a basket case right now with the HKG demonstrations taking place.Jump to post
How about we concentrate on American Airlines on an American Airlines post?Jump to post

Pretty exciting times at AA for their passengers and employees. I hope these routes are successful.Jump to post
Also the taxiway is too close to the terminals and the runways for an A380 to get to the gate.Jump to post

SEA can only handle the A380 on an emergency basis.Jump to post
At my carrier we do not need permission to deal with a customer’s medical needs, they trust that we’ll make the appropriate choices. It sounds to me like you had a very caring flight attendant.Jump to post
I stopped writing on this forum a few months ago as all slightly controversial (and hence interesting) posts get deleted, but with this piece of news, I just can't keep quiet! :-) Fantastic news for Bombardier, for Airbus, Air France, AND Air Baltic! Air Baltic was the sole airline that decided to ...Jump to post

This makes a lot of sense when you think of all the ULCC seats available on the city pair. United has been managing themselves pretty intelligently this past 18 months and their financials reflect this. I’m glad that they’ve seemed to have turned the corner and doing well.Jump to post
https://www.seattletimes.com/business/boeing-aerospace/alaska-air-profit-climbs-36-percent/ Alaska Air Group, parent company of Alaska Airlines and regional carrier Horizon Air, posted a net profit of $262 million, or $2.11 per share, in the second quarter, up 36% from the same quarter last year. “O...Jump to post
The airlines are in a very uncomfortable situation here. If they ban the support animals' support, they will be sued and they will lose. If they do not forbid them, they will sooner or later be sued as well, and they will lose as well. Simple solution. Require every flying animal to have a $100k th...Jump to post

Why'd anyone go via US when they can save hours going via EU and without needing a transit visa ?

Okay, when I saw this I thought seat pitch initially. Let me refill my coffee.Jump to post
There is no way United will resume these flights before October. To do so would be just throwing money away. They have zero bookings on flights from now to October, and India flights have a very long booking curve. These flights would be going out 20-30% full. That being said, I fully expect them t...Jump to post

DL also seems to be concentrating growth in regions who’s expanding. Such as AUS and RDU. DL has really good coverage of the continental US, save intra Texas travel. DL operates a reliable schedule and offers amenities people are willing to pay a little more for. I admit I do the same, I stay loyal ...Jump to post
I can see the logic in building this airport honestly. FRA/AMS/LHR/LGW don’t seem excited to go, if you had a large mega connecting hub for Europe and the other airports can concentrate more on O&D. It might be a situation that when it opens it’s underutilized, but 15 years later it’s thought of...Jump to post

I wouldn’t be surprised to see another A220 order from DL now. One of the things they liked about it was that inflight crew were already familiar with a 5 abreast layout. If the economics of the a/c are really as superior as what delta claims, I’d expect a220-300 imho. I have never had any of my co...Jump to post
