Adelaide could be a possibility as the state government is trying to court an airline to do USA-Adelaide flights. If the subsidy is high enough I am sure AA could start. It would help strengthen the QF/AA job that Adelaide has gotten a us service because of the JV.Jump to post
I could see the EU3, VS, JL/NH, CX, CA, CZ ,TK and QF/NZ/VA ordering the A35K ULR... EU3/VS to fly to SYD/MEL for these airlines a sub fleet of maybe 5 when you already have a bunch of that same type isn’t that much of a hassle compare to introducing a new type to only have like 5 planes. TK to fly ...Jump to post
ago According to Flightradar Virgin Australia has retimed it’s flights out of Hong Kong for 11am/1130am Local time 13/8. The flight to SYD is showing a time of 10am, MEL 1130am, if SYD gets delayed beyond 12 it will hit the curfew for SYD. VA still has both HKG flights operating tomorrow which mean...Jump to post

Since everyone is obsessed with KUL.. How about HNL-KUL? Closest place with plenty of flights to AA hubs. Monopoly market plus the AA 788 are suitable with the small J cabins. Personally I don’t see BNE-LAX announced as UA would have been on it already if there was demand. Just because QF has cut Q...Jump to post

Could possibly do DFW-BNE (maximum 3x a week to allow daily one stop flights to most major/Secondary US Destinations) or DFW -MEL (Daily as currently the biggest city in Oceania without a nonstop to an AA hub). DFW-BNE would be possible for an AA 789, MEL is way to far probably even to far for a QF...Jump to post
I could see a Delta SEA-SYD service as it would copy the success QF have with QF7/8 at DFW. DFW is only there primarily for connections and to get rid of double connects... Why VA/DL can’t copy the success at Seattle? Especially how there is more corporate demand from Seattle with companies such as ...Jump to post

Is Brisbane the Aussie end of the route because of range? Otherwise I don’t get it. 75% of traffic will have to take a domestic flight from Sydney or Melbourne first, so it’s no improvement on going via LAX on QF/AA or via AKL on NZ. Reminds me of the people who said after the success of PER LHR th...Jump to post
Because back then Non stop Long Haul did not exist. It was mainly milk run like MEL-SYD-AKL-NAN-APW-HNL-LAX-SFO-DFW-JFK There was limited competition/governments regulating bilateral rights.

The issue with the max was when there is a system failure there was not a back up. If anything the FAA must be more careful about system backups. The question before certification is “If this part fails will the plane crash and if it does what back ups are in place to ensure that a crash doesn’t hap...Jump to post
The most interesting question to me here is what happens to MNL and SIN for DL. Possible scenarios: - DL adds one or both of these routes out of Seattle, possibly with a short gap in service or weird timing until the new IAF opens. Pros: grows the Seattle hub, might be able to run SQ out of town. C...Jump to post
It could be an option to perhaps fend of Qantas when they launch SYD-JFK with the Project Sunrise aircraft.
Flying via AKL does sound attractive when the other options are via the USA or VYR.
When looking at NZ routes to USA you need to look at the potential feed that can come from Australia.
From my understanding a lot of the 787-9’s AA have bought are for the QF / AA JV. And where exactly do you get said understanding from? https://viewfromthewing.boardingarea.com/2019/01/18/american-airlines-expects-to-add-new-south-pacific-routes-this-year/ This is the best quote I have found so far...Jump to post
I've said all along that AA needs to RETURN to Tel Aviv from PHL, JFK, MIA, LAX or DFW! After they added Hong Kong and Sydney a few years ago (high yielding markets in the Pacific), there is ONLY 1 market left over the Atlantic that is high yielding and that is Tel Aviv! Dunno why they left TLV, it...Jump to post
Delta loses 2M per month on SYD according to the last employee round table. Why would they invest in a market that is a money hog. I’m actually surprised it has not moved seasonal or dropped over to VX fully. US$2-million? Year round? That’s serious. Where else could DL deploy their 77L’s that’s no...Jump to post
CNS is long enough require flatbed product in business class. KA will stay regional as long as possible. Even Darwin would be a stretch, though more likely than CNS. True and CNS is tagged to BNE.
