With all due respect, this is one of the most bizarre and unhinged rants I've ever seen on this site. Can't get any more superficial than dehumanizing others because of their appearance. Your viewpoints are such a pity.Jump to post

Flew OGG-HNL on Thursday and my 717 was subbed to an A330. Never imagined flying on a widebody on a 100mi flight! Looks like Hawaiian Airlines is facing a pilot shortage on the 717 fleet (due to certification delays) resulting in cancellations and equipment swaps to the A330. https://www.hawaiinewsn...Jump to post

LOT has been operating Budapest-Seoul nonstop since 2019 without overflying Russia at all (perhaps due to a lack of overflight rights on this particular route). More efficient aircraft such as the 787 makes this more feasible. In the past, Korean Air has operated a few Europe-Seoul routes (I believe...Jump to post

South Korea is still open to US passport holders (including for tourism) although there is a mandatory 10-day quarantine at a hotel (approx $1,500USD).

Is this airline a LCC operator? Its config kept XJ's high density, does that mean 3-3-3 in Y class? I wonder the same as well. If so, it will be tough on long flights to Europe...

A lot of secondary Japanese cities were cut from Asiana's network or relegated to Air Seoul well before COVID or any talks about a merger with KE.

I admire Lufthansa from an aviation geek's perspective (747s and A340s!) but agree that they don't deserve to be rated 5 stars for their service. I don't find their service bad per se, but there are other airlines, even in Europe (such as TAP) that far exceed Lufthansa in terms of service.Jump to post
UA 1/2 operated as LAX-JFK-LHR-DEL-HKG-LAX-JFK, not via IAD. The JFK-LHR-DEL-HKG sectors were flown on a 767-300ER (as well as HKG-DEL-LHR-JFK). HKG-LAX-HKG was flown on a 747-400.

NRT-ICN was a double daily 747-400 until the early 2000s, then it was a double daily 777-200ER until September 2006 when the frequency was reduced to 1x daily. The flight was downgauged to a 737-800 in March 2014, and UA ultimately pulled out of the route in October 2017.Jump to post
