Lets not forget that LH,CX,SQ, KE and EK all have seperate cargo units which carry ONLY cargo aboard which causes the numbers to go up compared to UA/DL since they don't have a seperate cargo fleet. UA/DL don't have as many departements that can handle cargo though compared to LH,CX,KE,SQ and EK hav...Jump to post
Not only was JNB recently launched but it will also get a 5th weekly frequency this winter.

Well MAD's A350 flights aren't even on sale yet so obviously theres a delay in the delivery. In addition the rumor about BA receiving the A350 on July 25th has gone quiet.Jump to post
Are you referring to this forum?
Just looked at their website and found nothing about them starting flights to IAD.

I ask on every flight and get a yes 90% of the time either before departure or after landing.

There is a short headline on CAPA (I can't read the whole article) that Air Senegal is going to get a 2nd A330. Where are they going to use this aircraft?

As many airline offices have closed since the creation of the internet are there any airline offices that you would reccommend visiting today that either give an idea of the days of golden travel or are just nice to visit?
Thanks in advanced.
CX aggressively expanded in Europe over the last few years with LGW, MAN, DUB, MAD, ZRH, BCN, BRU among others to their network. We've also seen BCN becoming a year round destination with the Airbus A350 and with MAD going 5x weekly with 3 Class B77W, though there are plans to deploy the Airbus A35...Jump to post
As far as I know, several airlines from Middle East and Africa offer service to Bangkok and extend it to other destinations, including KQ,ET,GF,EK,RJ,etc. BR even have a multitude of departures to Europe!

I can't say that I'm surprised. Baku is neither a popular tourist or business destination for Americans and there really aren't that many Azeris living in the US. The Azerbaijani population is centered in NY so it did make a bit of sense. Otherwise I know that the flight was in the works for many y...Jump to post
SU has been focusing much more heavily on Europe-Asia and to a lesser extent U.S-Europe travel (with its highest extent being 3x daily JFK-SVO 2 years ago with numerous connections).

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to try it. Great flight.
Not an airline but HAM Airport does. They print them on a 2-3 season basis. You can find them at the info desk or below the departure boards. Thats the closest I think it gets to an aviation company still printing timetables in today's day and age of technology. https://www.hamburg-airport.de/media/...Jump to post

This is all incremental revenue for them. Best is for ET to focus on maximimizng 5th freedom cargo uplift on mad dub mad in particular.

Title says it all. Fares are ranging from 116€ RT in Eco to 884€ RT in Biz. Interesting to see if they will lower their fares with Ryanair and Aer Lingus also on the route.
Seems that they changed it to make the livery more identifiable regarding the fact that they are Croatian:

If there is such a big market then how come did Germania fail then?
Had the possibility to talk to a RAM agent at MAD and was told that there are 10 passengers a day heading to the U.S with them (JFK & IAD). With MIA and BOS to come online that surely will rise and I bet it's higher from other U.S city (especially Secondary French cities).Jump to post
Kinda interesting RAM is saturating the Northeast (BOS-IAD-JFK).

ET has operated to MAD using the B738 (even before MAX) for a while. It upgraded to B788s in the summer when the traffic was there to support it.

I wonder if they will be conservative with loads initially. As far as I can tell the ULR has never flown this distance even in test.
