To avoid Pakistani airspace, why some flights from Europe come all the way to Mumbai while other go over Porbander/Gujrat to reach Delhi? I am sure it is added time and fuel.
Is it the decision of ATC or airlines?

I love the familiarity of using my phone however, it is not very convenient for my NECK and always prefer the bigger seatback screens.
If the seatbacks are little modified to dock my phone, I would use it without any problem....till then I prefer bigger seatback entertainment.

To where? Africa? There are very few US flights to the continent. If there was more profit, they could be flying nonstop already. Even African airlines cannot be profitable.

I think United will soon cease its service to Mumbai if Delta enters the market. :( Why would you think that? That flight has existed for over a decade, through the rise of ME3 options.

It's a great news! Good competition to UA and AI on non-stop to BOM. I always wonder why airlines don't announce the cities- or it is just for A netters to guess and debate for few days!

Yuck! 3-3-3 seating in economy. They also have a business class so you can sit in there. This econ layout is pretty much the global standard for the next 30 years so you'll either have to fly business or take the bus. No, I can fly on a 767 with 2-3-2 seating.

I don't think the Israelis will feel comfortable flying over saudi airspace especially in case of an emergency.

How do you decide whether an aircraft model is dead or alive? Is the 747-8 dead? Yes, its production rate has slowed to a crawl. No, it still receives new orders for freighter aircraft. Is the A318 dead? Yes, many have been scrapped and its efficiency is low for its generation. No, the A318 is stil...Jump to post
