Re: Which city may become JAL’s next international destination?

JAL's next US destination should be Miami, its a natural since its an AA hub and a region JAL doesn't fly to. A 787-9 should have no problem from NRT to MIA. Is it just me, but why is MIA so logical? Of course it is a OW-hub but geographically it doesn't make sense. Where would a passenger from TYO...

Re: What's the deal with LHR's third runway?

Just from looking at Google Maps it seems to me a 18/36 Runway would be the reasonable solution. On the SW where now the A304 is located. Probably the runway could only be used in southern direction for take off and northern direction for landing. Barely any houses would need to get demolished, alto...

Re: Austrian Airlines long-haul fleet replacement?

Lufthansa Group should be doing group-wide B789 or A359/A35k order for all of the airlines except (if B789) Lufthansa itself. It makes too much sense for EW, LX, OS, SN, and WK to replace all wide bodies except for the LX 77Ws which would move to LH. This would reduce fleet types and aircraft could...

Re: KLM 747 lands in HKG in the middle of a typhoon

Good decision by the pilots in my opinion, if they tought it was safe to land. Much less hassle for the passengers. And even if they had to wait a couple of hours in the terminal or in the plane before they could collect their bags and go trough costums. It is most likely to be a lot shorter than di...

Re: KLM bought a 747!

That title was... unnecessary :scratchchin: AF/KLM group should end the "KLM Cargo" brand and focus in growing Martinair... IMHO It would be even better if they could develop Martinair as their leisure branch, to compete with TUI and maybe pick up some Caribbean routes from KLM. However, ...

Re: AirFrance/KLM buys significant stake in VS and extends partnership with DL/MU

I always wondered what DL/Skyteam saw in VS. They barely add any cities to the SkyTeam-network they don't already serve. Is it just for the London O&D market?

Re: Extremely rare runway configurations

Schipol's Polderbaan runway which is so far from the main terminal that the taxi to/from it could take longer than the actual flight. How is that rare? It's being used almost every day. Talking about AMS, few weeks ago I saw on FR24 that 18R and 36R where used simultaneously for landings. Never saw...

Re: What's the biggest airport that is either all-Boeing or all-Airbus?

GRO seems to be 737 only, at least tomorrow. It has mainly Ryanair flights, but also some Jet2 and a Transavia flight.
