I hope your partner complained to the airline giving flight, time and dates. It seems totally unacceptable if the norm is to serve customers on comparable flights.

Armenia Airways takes ex Tarom A310s

Great to see the former Tarom A310s live on. Armenia Airways looks like a new operation, with only these two aircraft in their fleet. Does anyone know anything about the plans they have? https://www.planespotters.net/airline/Armenia-Airways

Time for the US authorities to label some of these mergers as severely detrimental to competition and leave them on the table. As consumers we should want diversity and not champion these mergers.

Would hazard a guess at it being in Asia. Jeju to Seoul is my guess. An incredible amount of pax every day.

Air Busan
Asiana
Eastar Jet
Korean Air
Jeju Air
Jin Air
T'way

112+ flights per day ranging from B737NG/A32X to B744 in size.
