So if I was to go to Hawaii now with a negative test I would still have to quarantine? If that’s not dumb I’m not sure what is. If you go now then yes, you will still have to quarantine. Beginning August 1 you will not if you have a negative COVID-19 test result no more than 72 hours prior to your ...Jump to post

Distance wise, no. Air Tahiti Nui's TN64 PPT-CDG nonstop on March 15, 2020 was several hundred miles longer (9765 vs 9182):

HA actually did this in the mid 2000s with the ONT route. They routed HNL-ONT-LAS and LAS-ONT-HNL toward the final days of them operating it because the loads weren't good enough in a D10 or 763 for them in ONT. It was their final attempt at trying to make ONT work, and even with a LAS tag it could...Jump to post

Whether projects like T1 go forward will depend on how the airport evaluates the trade offs. Fewer passengers and flights make it logistically easier to do the work, but harder to pay for with less revenue coming in. The revenue decline will put pressure to delay the project, but if they do find a w...Jump to post

Yes. KLM is still obligated to get you to where you bought the ticket to go. Putting you on Delta at least part of the way is a likely option since they're close partners, but not necessarily guaranteed. They may also consider Air France, which is their sister airline.

Thank you for the update! Ironically enough, despite my so-called "SAN credentials", I have never utilized my own beloved airport's new international facilities.

In the case of an international arrival, passengers would exit the aircraft, but instead of exiting directly into the terminal, they are re-directed to the escalators up to the FIS facility, and departing passengers would have already proceeded to the directed international departure waiting area. ...Jump to post
I noticed DL parked their A333 at one of the international gates. Is this normal when operating A333s? I believe so. I think most of the widebody-capable gates are also connected to FIS. When I've flown Hawaiian's A330 we've used gates 50 or 51. And when I flew a Delta 767 ATL-SAN, we arrived at 51.Jump to post
