Question: Do these foreign based FA's comprise the entire crew, or are they just 2 or 3 add-on FA's working alongside a US crew?
As an example, I read somewhere that I think one of the French airlines flying to PPT uses a mixture of Tahiti-based and French-based FA's on the LAX-PPT sector.
Who is the market for this airline? Point to point? If it's no longer picking up DXB-LHR passengers. Surely Brunei isn't a major hub for Australia or New Zealand? That's a long way to fly on a Dry airline (not that it should be primary reason for flying of course but still).... Sorry if I come acro...Jump to post
Surprised there are so many flights in the summer TATL from/to LAS. Seems like LAS would not be popular due to the extreme heat.. Likely follows when most people have holidays.

I knew a couple of SQ station managers when SQ was flying here. They got out of the Vancouver route because they could not compete with the Chinese airlines. I don't see how that changes at all with a direct non stop flight from SIN - YVR. U can get YVR-SIN with one stop in Dec for under USD$530 fr...Jump to post
Why would they have to have every flight to every continent? Precisely where A.net has gone down to. And don't try to argue, this is exactly your logic.

So the Bay Area is a tech hub... how does that create business demand (one of the cohorts willing to pay a premium for non-stops) to Central or South America?

I think the original plan was to get rid of the 333s quickly because of the small fleet however the plans got reshuffled earlier this year with the expanded 788/789 order, instead of rushing out the 333, they decided to fast track the 763 retirements with 788 replacements and later replace the 333 ...Jump to post

Westjet's new 787 business class is beautiful....yet on the flipside, they charge for meals on long-haul in Y. Fly 10 hours YVR to LGW and a meal with wine and snacks will put you back $30.

Chinese airlines get a lot of West Coast to India traffic through PVG and CAN. Those flights are usually the cheapest way. Wonder if the same could eventually happen through Moscow from the East Coast? From YVR, for example, it seems that a solid quarter of CZ's YVR-CAN pax are Indians in transit. (...Jump to post
So, unless Rouge's utilization is way down the OP's assertion is just wrong. So many worthless threads start with poor command of objective fact.

I think you are confused on "confusing the market". It refers to both Rouge and mainline flying the same route at the same time. So if you took the 0900 flight it would be Rouge, but the 1200 flight it is mainline. Air Canada is trying to avoid the circumstance where on the same trip on t...Jump to post
Rouge provides great flexibility. It’s done a wonderful job at opening a route and creating demand for a more premium product. Look at Dublin and Warsaw. You have 282 seats in which a low yield route can now work. Hard to do with lie flat seats whos cabin takes up 1/3 of the footprint of the aircra...Jump to post
AC tries not to "confuse" the market, so unless the destination can be totally "Rouged" then it stays at mainline. I think these changes have very much "confused the market". Mexican resorts: You're on Rouge if you're flying YYZ-PVR, but mainline if you're flying YYZ-Z...Jump to post
Rouge is a huge success at Air Canada. Period. Some might find "huge success" a curious term given the closure of many Rouge bases and removal of many Rouge routes. I'm not saying it's not, becuase I have no inside knowledge, I just find it curious. If the Rouge model of business was such...Jump to post
I just noticed that Air Canada mainline is taking over operations of a number of Rouge routes , including almost all Rouge service from YVR.

I have never understood why Caribbean airlines like Cayman, do not fly winter seasonals to Canada. 1-3 weekly GCM-YYZ/YOW/YUL seems like a no-brainer.

I know that for Y class, the rule nowadays is to pack them as tight as possible, but I thought for J class it was the opposite.

So, Flair are trying to make it work by adding sun routes.

That's why I've been confused throughout this whole topic. In my experience it's pretty much the honor system. They don't push you through a corridor or anything.

Their First Class is too luxury (i.e. costly to Grauda) to the Indonesian market. Their economy level is not wealth enough to support it.

Does Iran Air have interline with carriers that fly into AMS, CDG and LHR?
If not, I assume hubs like IST or DXB are getting most Iran bound traffic now?
Presumably the decision will be made based on feedback by Wikipedia users/editors. So anyone who favors keeping the destination tables, should make their voices heard on the requisite discussion table posted in the original post.Jump to post
