The issue is far broader than what AA or UA will do. Airlines all over the world including Japanese airlines cant operate the flights they wish to due lack of demand or government regulations.

Americans can't enter Japan today without a PCR test and 14-day quarantine. Americans (and people of all non-Japanese nationalities who have recently been in 120+ countries, i.e. most major nations on Earth) are totally banned from entering Japan. Doesn't matter if you are willing to take a PCR or ...Jump to post

So they anticipate that at least Taiwan and Macau will open border to each other in June?

DMK is such an awful facility. The oldest operating airport in Asia and it shows; immigration queues that make Suvarnabhumi's look tame. To say nothing of how bad the traffic is from there to anywhere in Bangkok south of Sukhumvit Road—there are traffic jams inside the drop off/pick up area!Jump to post
What's this obsession with mergers and consolidation? It's as if some people on here won't be happy until the US is left with a single carrier. In general, I would say most posters here seem to stan whatever perspective or outcome would benefit the carriers or shareholders, rather than passengers. ...Jump to post
Austin should focus on building useful public transit, solving its homelessness problem and building more affordable housing before aiming for more international flights. It’s one of the most provincial “cool” cities in America, and its people are provincial and see the world in a myopic way, but it...Jump to post

SIN-SEA is 14 hours 40 minutes block time so unfortunately the B781 cannot operate this route nonstop.
Are they preparing for the facility (and the city) to be underwater by 2050?Jump to post
Me too. And I think it will look even better on larger planes. I imagine the reason it looks so LCC-ish on the 737 is because the 737 is a popular LCC aircraft of choice, not because of the logo itself...Jump to post

Anyone on here taken WOW yet? Thoughts? Seat advice? General advice about Iceland. I am thinking about going in March. I took Wow Airlines KEF-STL in early August.

Indonesia in particular is a very low-yield destination. Malaysia is too, it seems, though the general economic trajectory of the country (it's more or less "developed" at this point) would suggest that shouldn't be the case to the extent it is.Jump to post
The seats are angle-flat, and are the same as what OZ, KE, TG, etc. offer on some Asia routes in J. I knew the food service wouldn't be on the same level, but I was amazed at just how awful it was.

DJ/XJ can order all the planes it wants, but it's still a trash airline.

Does this mean the A350 is better in your opinion, or the others are?
