Government ran airline, that's corruptly ran. Management can't do much due to how much the government comes in and steals from PIA. Most of PIA is occupied by Political family members and supporters etc. What do you expect with airline with staff of 10000 plus and fleet of 40 aircraft more or less, ...Jump to post

If the flight is less than 2.5 hours I can handle being in economy with 31 inch pitch. If the flight is longer than that I need a economy product like with 32 inch plus of pitch, for me to sit comfortable due to my tall height. On short sector I wouldn't pay for domestic first, or even on a late nig...Jump to post

DFW is one of the few destinations BA kept flying to throughout the pandemic so far. As a cargo-only flight Correct - IAGCargo has some very profitable business on this route so it won't be dropped.

Both are very good airlines, I do enjoy a layover were i can go out, get a shower, and get fresh air. Since QR is giving you that option, then go with QR, plus you haven't been to Doha. Doha is like Dubai on a small scale, it a chill city, people are nice as well. Hopefully you get to Doha on time o...Jump to post

I stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Abu Dhabi, for the price i paid it was definitely worth it.

For long haul international, here's a very premature speculation of what will stay and go. I don't think UA will cut any South American cities since most cities are only served through IAH in the network. We will probably lose MUC as Star traffic consolidates to FRA, and AMS will get downgauged due...Jump to post
Why is this a Presidential problem? That’s exactly the wrong “one size fits all” level of thinking. Because the Orange in Chief ranted several times yesterday (Tuesday) the President had the power to override ANY state laws and rules. That he could order cities and states to end stay at home orders...Jump to post

I don't see much happening to IAH other than few destinations might get cut, also decrease of frequencies on certain flights. Regarding hubs like Guam, Denver, Cleveland, LAX, and IAD I can see much major cuts or changes. ORD, EWR, and SFO i doubt anything major will change then beside a few destina...Jump to post

Lot of Indians around the world, and a lot in Europe.

As cities like RDU, AUS, BOS, SEA, and other cities are growing and lack a real hub for a airline. DL and AA are beating UA to the punch to capture some key markets out of such cities.

Good for PIA but is 3X really viable on JFK-ISB given all the ME3 competition? Perfect for retired VFR I guess.
