Reroute it to MKE then. A lot of them are fleeing north.

"They are merely speculating it, they have no concrete proof that it actually happened."
Of course they do. No they are not, speculating. Do you honestly think they are going to divulge their methods and capabilities to the media.

Indeed. A portion of the new terminal in Addis Ababa is open, the hub for ET. Signage is in Amharic, English, and Chinese.Jump to post
"ET already has this in place. If your connection at ADD is greater than 8 hours, they will accommodate you in a local hotel. They are now even providing free tours of ADD." I think a lot of people are being put up at ET's new Skylight Hotel, next to the airport. Would seem to make sense. ...Jump to post
"But before more network expansion, they need to focus on a major expansion/enhancement for ADD !! It's just so overcrowded and I doubt the current expansion will help by that much." This folks is a terrific point! Current Bole is frequently a madhouse. The arrival immigration area is ofte...Jump to post
"But I gotta say, if I step back and ask myself, "who is a better state owned/operated carrier than Thai?" "
Looking at the new schedule. Horrible connection times to places like BKK, ICN, MNL from IAD if you use the new HND route.Jump to post
"I've been on AF's 10-across 77W on an 8-hour flight and find the histrionics to be ridiculous. I was quite comfortable." Therefore everyone else should also.

I was curious to see how Juba airport looked like (considering it is one of the newest countries in the world) and I have found those pics: http://hotinjuba.com/7069-2/ Is this really Juba Airport?

"The problem is SFO is not a great connecting point to ICN from the eastern US. That is partially why UA is still operating HKG-SIN despite the SFO nonstop. But who knows, maybe UA is looking at adding ORD-ICN or EWR-ICN" Exactly! Pairing it up with 803/804 from IAD was ideal, especially o...Jump to post
She's probably done. The FAA will probably suspend her medical due to psychological reasons and it will be very difficult and time consuming for her to get it back. If she does manage to get it back, she will still face discipline from UA for her actions. Pilots rightly or wrongly are held to a hig...Jump to post

That leaves UA as the only US carrier in NYC-TYO market. UA must be partying. I thought DL had the government contract for BKK which was a reason UA left BKK.

I'd say that delta must have somehow found a way to get most people from A to B.
