Re: Pre-Screening Feedback - Schmave

Hmmmmm. I've been shooting for a very long time and I've never seen colours like those close to sundown - I'd expect more red/yellow. With the UA the whole of the rear above the gold cheatline looks a touch soft to me, but the titles look oversharp. Could be the light, though. Not sure I can see bl...

Re: Pre-Screening Feedback - Schmave

Both look a bit cyan to me and the UA looks soft/blurry in parts (and oversharp to compensate). Karl So they were both taken just before sundown, so the colors look more or less as they did at the time. I thought about correcting the white balance for the UA based on the fuselage, but then it didn'...

Re: Will DL return to HKG again?

Talking about yields, I flew LAX-HKG round-trip in October for ~$350 on HX. And the cheap fare was basically the only reason we took the trip. Delta does not want to chase yields like that so, IMO, they won't be returning anytime soon. They can always connect customers through ICN via KE if they nee...
