Interesting RFP, that's for sure. Another question is why they would specifically want Dash 8-300s and not consider getting ATRs.
Perhaps it's an issue with them having both A310 and 737 Classic pilots, and them not wanting to switch to a single manufacturer?
I just did a dummy search for Oct 14-18 and D1 is readily available. Fares range from $3,791-$5,178 RT. The higher fares are the first few flights of the day. Are there specific dates you're looking at? For domestic business/first? $5,000? You gots to be kidding. What kind of fool pays this sort of...Jump to post
LOL “Albert Einstein-Donald Trump Airport.” That said, a Narita-style airport for New York isn’t a bad idea. Connect it with an efficient train and leave JFK for business pax, like Haneda. I’ve heard worse ideas. Haneda is like twice the size of Narita. It's going to be difficult to attract 200m pa...Jump to post

Can't they fly the route with a 73G or something? Wouldn't that reduce costs?Jump to post
I'm struggling to understand this route. Why would BA devote a 789 to a leisure destination, twice weekly from LHR, not even LGW? Is there something special about this market? With all of the ME3 serving SEZ, they probably have a grip on most of the lower-yield traffic Europe - SEZ. By operating th...Jump to post

Perhaps downgauge KUL-PER to B738 before cancelling the route?Jump to post
Perhaps an order by the Chinese government, to be distributed to Chinese airlines.Jump to post
Accelerate 3 x A321 by 1 year. Delay 13 x A321 NEO x 4 to 5 years. Delaying A321's doesn't seem to jive well with getting rid of E-190's, unless their market outlook is very negative. Considering NEO engine production delays, this may likely be Airbus offering to provide a discount if B6 were willi...Jump to post

So Spain and Russia worked out only one daily Trans-Siberian flight originating from Madrid? What does this mean for other potential MAD-Asia flights? So there will be no BCN-Japan/Korea/China on any airline? CX has been operating a 77W between HKG and MAD for some time now, 4 weekly. Avoiding Russ...Jump to post

I don't think so. Ryanair doesn't buy other airlines no matter how cheap they are, they just compete them out into final bankrupcy. Sure Ryanair will be willing to take over a bit of the route network of Air Berlin just like they promised to do with Alitalia, but not the airline itself. This would ...Jump to post

Split-hub operations at both MXP and LIN in Milan have often been cited as a reason for Alitalia's demise. Would long-haul flights from Linate be possible? A number of airports with shorter runways than LIN can support year-round long-haul nonstop flights; SXM, NCL and RAR come to mind. When KL can ...Jump to post
I feel like India could be a possible destination for them! I am hoping for China. With 11 Chinese carriers (including Taiwan and HK) flying to Canada now, maybe Westjet will be more successful in getting further access to China than Air Canada. Probably not. While a huge market, China - Canada is ...Jump to post
Damascus? Seriously? Anyhow, BEY I think has a descent chance to work, not sure about IKA though. I think the other routes you have stated are already covered by the ME3 and Saudia. I think PEK would be a logical addition, later followed by PEK. BEY was to be launched in 2006 but cancelled with the...Jump to post
5. I think a lot of Nepali works overseas, but not sure if they are working in ME. If they are, then it is possible the route would be profitable.

What is the regulatory minimum to fly international in Brazil? Like in India it's atleast 20 aircraft must be flying domestically.
Why do Indian airlines have to fly 20 aircraft domestically before international?
