Re: Kenya Airways Wants a Better Deal From Air France-KLM Partnership

So they want to have the cake but eat it too? Not sure what you mean by that statement. A lot of airlines have agreements with non-alliance members or non-JV partners. Kenya Airways is being nationalised (true, it will become another basket case airline with the interference of a corrupt government...

Re: Mexico's president suggests his government may resucitate Mexicana de Aviacion

Would they rejoin OW? I know Interjet was in talks of joining but it never proceeded. They do codeshare with AA, BA, IB, LATAM, etc. Oddly enough, if I remember correctly, Mexicana never left oneworld. In fact, on the old oneworld website, they were still listed as an ‘inactive member’. So (if inde...

Re: Avianca Brasil leaving Star Alliance

Well, even after O6 joined star alliance, the "big boys" of Star Alliance did not partner with them. For example, if I am correct, LH did not even codeshare on a single route with O6. UA got into bed with Azul and ditched O6. In spite of them launching GRU-SCL, etc., they never got feed fr...

Re: Updated: American Airlines Increases International Presence, Makes First Entrance Into Africa

Someone posted on here earlier, and I agree. If delta announced another route to AMS in 767, everyone on here would be celebrating how innovative they are. AA announces Africa, more secondary cities in Europe, and more to come next week in Australia and NZ, and it’s boring. Sounds good. And on beau...

Re: Updated: American Airlines Increases International Presence, Makes First Entrance Into Africa

I don’t think AA would drop their DFW-NRT flight. Although that being their only NRT route is also not good news, unless they are launching a flight from another hub. I'm honestly not sure what is going to be with NRT. I'm list 1 of the NRT flights cancelled (and moved to HND.) Whether AA keeps LAX...

Re: Updated: American Airlines Increases International Presence, Makes First Entrance Into Africa

So for the second part/TPAC announcements, thoughts? My guesses for AA * is what I think will actually be announced LAX-MEL* very likely LAX-BNE possible, depends on if QF needs frames LAX-AKL*- return to year round or very short no-fly season LAX-CHC*- seasonal LAX-NRT - dropped LAX-PPT - seasonal...

Yes, but only from gateways in Europe to TLV: https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/246276/american-airlines-expands-el-al-codeshare-service-from-late-dec-2014/ Interestingly, this expansion of codeshare came just after they severed their frequent ...

Re: Rumor: American to make huge announcement

If it is indeed going to be "a big sweeping thing", I should hope for at least the following:- 1. Asia: LAX-ICN or TPE - It has been rumored for a while: https://blueswandaily.com/seoul-los-angeles-american-airlines-could-be-considering-a-new-route/ 2. Africa: At least one of MIA-JNB or PH...

Exactly! And I am surprised that EY is so down on the list. I can understand that with the mess EY is in lately, their service has gone down - But they're still way better than many carriers on the list.

Re: Because Delta (DL) has not canceled NRT-SIN?

As for PDX. I can't believe it does well enough now to keep flying to NRT. Without any feed at HND I will be shocked to see it survive. If JL/NH entered DL would be crazy to even stay 1 second longer. With no feed on either end they would be demolished. I wonder if DL has a plan for where to ask to...

Re: Because Delta (DL) has not canceled NRT-SIN?

And give it two years - I will be surprised if DL still flies MSP-HND (or PDX-HND - it is only a matter of time that JL jumps on the route in partnership with AS). I find it really hard to believe that DL will be able to profitably fly seven daily into HND - one each of SEA/PDX/LAX/MSP/DTW/ATL/HNL-...

Re: Vietnam Airlines Moscow Airport changes

A very natural choice given their SkyTeam membership. I wonder why it took them so long for this move when every other SkyTeam carrier had relocated to SVO - Were the fees at DME attractively low?

Re: Skyteam DL/AF/KL EU-US New routes?

EWR still seems like the biggest hole in their transatlantic JV. DL pulled out of EWR-AMS and EWR-CDG in the recent past - however VS still flies once daily to LHR (if I am correct). However with recent increase in competition on these routes, they may not be worth re-attempting in the immediate fut...
