Still blows my mind that LAX-ICN isn't on the table. There has to be enough O&D to support a daily 788 without sabotaging DFW-ICN.Jump to post
Also, why would they pull the A380 from Jfk and put it back on LAX-NRT when: 1). They’ve already cancelled the A380 from NRT-LAX-NRT not that long ago. 2). the premium passengers that would pay for F/Suites want HND and there’s now several new LAX-HND flights coming. The A380 was only pulled from L...Jump to post
"KE ICN-LAX MAY 2>3 JUN 2>3 JUL 2>3 AUG 2>3" Looks like KE is starting a third flight on this route. Not sure if this is year round, or seasonal. Is this because of the new JV with DL,.or is it a preemptive move to make sure possibly AA does not start the route? Or both? Runs ...Jump to post
Not sure if this has already been reported, but LA increased LAX-SCL to daily and JFK-SCL to 10 weekly.
No way the theme building gets knocked down. Its been designated by the city as a historic building. I know, just saying if they got rid of it, demolished the old control tower and administrative offices you could make the entrance to the CTA flow better.

I think they cutback ONT previously and now some of it is going back to LAX
*CI LAX-TPE NOV 1.0>1.4[1.0] DEC 1.0>1.4[1.0] JAN 1.0>1.5[1.0] FEB 1.0>1.4[1.0] MAR 1.0>1.4[1.0]
I could see atleast seasonal AA LAX-MEL/BNE replacing.
Trends that I've noticed over the past several years: TPE: LAX had the edge up until about 2 years ago. LAX/ONT and SFO now pretty even. ICN: SFO > LAX in terms of frequency (smaller aircraft), but I doubt it will ever surpass the volume afforded by LAX's VFR pax. HKG: SFO>>LAX until about 2 years a...Jump to post

One thing I found is Koreans have very strong preference for KE and OZ.

This is because OZ and KE both have a service culture very much in li...Jump to post

Anxious to see more info on the "semi fixed back shell design." IMO CX's old economy was the most uncomfortable seat I've ever flown in long haul.

Always exciting to see a new carrier, especially when it's buying brand spanking state-of-the art planes. But does the tail graphic mean something?

From what I know 77Ls have about equal range as 345s so 77Ls should easily handle LAX/JFK-SIN. However, given that DL struggles to maoe HKG work, I don't see DL starting SIN(some 1000 miles further than HKG) anytime soon. If DL had any interest in direct US-SIN, then DL would already have tried SEA...Jump to post

AA flies to ICN from DFW daily.
Or they could opt to serve it nonstop from either Los Angeles or Seattle with their new A350 aircraft. LAX or SEA-to-SIN with little feed on one end and no feed on the other? Not a chance DL starts these routes. Not to mention the fact that their supposedly A350 cannot do LAX-SYD with a meaningful ...Jump to post

From what I've read of these answers, it seems like there isn't agreement on the criteria for selection. I always thought it was supposed to be which routes best served US consumers, which to me knocks out HNL, GUM, and LAS service. It also is not supposed to be about making things "fair"...Jump to post

No 16" seats (that is reserved for 10Y A350s). 10Y 777s have 17" or 17.2" seats depending on carrier (and aisle width). 10Y 777X can accommodate 18" seats with narrow aisles. Sort of disingenuous of Boeing to be touting an extra 0.8-1 inch of width per seat when the new cabin is...Jump to post
I recall Boeing saying that they will try to make the 777-8/9 cabin a few inches wider by making the insulation thinner. Were they actually able to do that, or is it still the same 16" seats in 3-4-3 economy? No 16" seats (that is reserved for 10Y A350s). 10Y 777s have 17" or 17.2&qu...Jump to post

Couldn't tell you what average fare data looks like but $600 fares on LAX-SYD used to be virtually unheard of...now they are common.

Why isn't BA on that list, and how is LH ahead of them? With year round 3x daily (747, 787, A380) they should be ahead of LH which has year round A380 + A346 and only a seasonal extra daily 748. The BA service goes up to 2x daily A380 + 1x daily 787 during summer season. I was wondering the same th...Jump to post
Yeah I get that. But surely TG can make it work as much as PR can? They have strong Star Alliance partnership so surely a stop over in NRT/ HND (NH), ICN (OZ) or even TPE (BR) will be viable?
