VS connect LOS/DEL to JFK on the VS25/26 rotations.

There have been issues raised by certain airlines in the past; one that comes to mind is Air France and their IKA route (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35962239), a route which AF now lets FAs opt-out of.

With LHR basically full and no real room to build that hub operation, it means MAN could see a bit of growth. No point having a huge feed operation for 6 flights a day at MAN, so, long haul could see some growth. While I’m not going to speculate on potential routes, it would be naive to think there...Jump to post
An important thing to note for anyone using the ACARS Decoder: "Since January 2006, we create daily ACARS reports which can be downloaded from this server.

The simplest reason, and best reason that comes to mind is that UAL operates a Star Alliance hub at EWR that can be used to feed the SQ flight. If I remember correctly, the only SQ codeshare agreement with UA is on flights to/from their Houston hub - though I'm sure they have interlining agreements...Jump to post
These would be some pretty interesting statistics to look at, especially if there's major differences between similar carriers.

Would be interesting to see how transfer traffic will work for say a XXX-IST-YYY (non-BOM/DEL) routing. TK is essentially full service international carrier.

CMI flights per the old CO contract could never touch the 48 states on the FA side , also all cock pit crew were CO pilots.

As another thread stated, it's the largest amount of planes in a foreign airport at the same time. I believe 9-10 or so Delta planes are on the ground in AMS at the same time.

An unrelated question. Why are there so few pictures of 6E, SG and G8 aircraft in the database? An airline as big as 6E should have had 10,000 photos at least. Instead there are not even 500; almost all of them are in TLS/XFW/MAD/OSR or BKK/DXB/SIN. My initial guess is that because photography at I...Jump to post
People on Anet criticize the timings of every new international flight to/from India without understanding that that's simply when the main international departure/arrival banks are.

True, but AUH is more favourable situated between Europe and Australia.

I think what the OP was referring to is a central terminal that handles a majority of international flights not operated by a US carrier - Terminal B at EWR, Terminal 5 at ORD, Terminal E at BOS, Terminal D at DFW, etc. Some airports have a handful of ops outside of this main terminal (T2 at LAX has...Jump to post
All major Indian airports are virtually 24 hour operations, with domestic flights operating regularly from 5AM to 11PM (and with AI's new redeye program, 24 hours) and two international banks - a smaller one around midday and the primary one from 11PM to 5AM.Jump to post
Why does Ryanair fly to Paris-Beauvais, or to Frankfurt-Hahn? They are cheaper for the carrier to use than the major airports, and it's easier to get gate/stands space & time slots. SWF isn't nowhere , but it is an odd place for international arrivals. Count the international carriers that use ...Jump to post

You think their plan was to carry people from Europe, back to Iceland, and then to India? If that was the plan it is dumb, but surely they intend it to connect to the USA.

JetBlue Airways Corp. will offer its own version of a basic economy fare, saying its “success is at risk” if it doesn’t match the discounted, no-extras tickets being sold by larger rivals.

I guess LH is following through on its threats to move away a bit from FRA. In a way, it does make sense to split the traffic between FRA and MUC. FRA is well suited for North American connections in Europe, and MUC for Asia, since I assume there are few people traveling from North America to Asia ...Jump to post

There's a very good explanation for this: No airline with an all Airbus fleet has bought any Boeing aircraft, while the opposite is true.
Minor, but HA also operates the A330.
I think that O'Leary's off his rocker, attempting to extrapolate the mergers of the US carriers into a Big 3 (or 4) into future mergers in Europe.
It's still not acceptable or PC to name your wifi network in such an inconsiderate manner. Obviously, people who think it's a joking matter like this have never had such an incident affect them personally.Jump to post
As a member of Generation Z, it appears that carriers like B6, VX, and WN are the most "relatable" or societally "cool" - I find it difficult to believe that any of the Big Three could surpass the LCCs or related carriers in this demographic.Jump to post

It doesn't seem to make sense at all that CX would want the A350-8000. The A350-900 is born to take on long and thin routes, and if that's not long enough, the 777-9 works instead.
