Amsterdam KLM does fly Amsterdam to Osaka, as does Aeroflot from Moscow Sheremetyevo and Turkish Airlines from Istanbul. That makes the total number of European airlines at Kansai 7, quite a significant number. By the way, Lufthansa serves Kansai from Munich instead of Frankfurt. The American marke...Jump to post

It will often work, unless it is cloudy at SFO and they shut down a runway or two. The international and domestic terminals are adjacent and connected airside. Using the moving walkways and a brisk pace it will usually be only about 15 or 20 minutes (max) gate to gate. If the weather is poor the in...Jump to post
Unless some sort of delay on first leg, this is plenty of time, SFO on the ground is pretty easy to navigate.Jump to post

SLC does not have the O&D to sustain SLC-ICN. And connections are best routed through SEA, LAX, DTW, ATL and MSP?
Surprised they would not connect SLC to ICN instead given it is a hub. I know they tried SLC-NRT about 10 years ago, but vastly more connections with Korean JV than Narita had. Regardless, good to even here whispers of International returning at this point.Jump to post
NW and Delta Merge - CVG and MEM shut down, DTW and ATL win DL de-banked CVG in 2003, and began drawing it down significantly in 2005. By the time of the 2008 merger, CVG had already lost the majority of its international flights, and served 12million LESS passengers than its 2004/2005 high. And fu...Jump to post
Not mention of BWI, I don't recall all of the details, but if I recall, USAir basically got crushed by Southwest, but I am going by memory and may have been more to it, I am sure. Some smaller ones too, TPA for NW - dropped with Republic merger SJC for AA - cane and went a couple times DCA for NW - ...Jump to post

Although parts of this are funny, over 500K people in the US alone have died from COVID. Not sure that was the best way to get at the funnier aspects of the post.Jump to post
SFO-LAS on DL... I'm surprised they don't fly this route... DL is very focused on their hubs, its rare for them to announce point to point routes, or that's at least what I believe. Pre pandemic, they were operating, SNA, SJC, PDX, and maybe SMF or SAN to LAS, so SFO at that time would not necessar...Jump to post
Because of the shorter stage lengths, you could probably get away with scheduling a quick turnaround to Tokyo with a later departure time. However, for destinations further afield, the return flight would arrive back too late stateside to facilitate a lot of meaningful connections with just a turna...Jump to post
After Pandemic, I could see potentially, JFK-CAI and IST being added back. Has to be enough premium on those routes in normal times to be successful.Jump to post
Maybe in the later half of the year, some international love for DEN. Announced this year, not flown until 2022.
DEN-CDG on AF, UA or DL with no more Norwegian possible
DEN-TPE - on BR. more or less the last major UA hub to get service
I could see a few A35K for Intl hub to hub routes, with less flights to secondary intl markets. Would not be a big fleet, but could see ATL-SEL, DTW-AMS, those type of routes, but right now can't see any purchases but a couple years out sure.Jump to post
Flew it to Asia, ORD-SEL back in the day and for the day it was really nice. Nothing like lie flat seating and suites, but then nobody had that to my knowledge back then.Jump to post

new to this website, so might take a bit of time for me to settle in I was going through some of my travel memoirs and found a plane ticket for a BA flight from London to Harare, back then known as Salisbury, dating back from probably the late-90s or something, and it made me wonder which routes di...Jump to post

I remember going through MEM the year after the merger and it was a large hub at that point with I believe 5 banks a day and over 400 flights a day. By the time of the DL merger MEM was down to less than half of that and as others have said was heavy on regional jets. DL more or less completed what...Jump to post

Eastern doesn't seem to trigger the same good memories as TWA and Pan Am. I'm too young to have experienced any of them for myself but I frequently hear people say how much they miss Pan Am and TWA.

It’s not the Black Plague/death. Get real. It’s a cousin to the common cold.

Why? Why does DL even need SEA anymore when their jv partners do most of the flying? It does make sense for DL to keep the SEA hub, even with some of DL's JV partners serving SEA, due to (a) DL having nonstop service out of SEA to some destinations in Southeast Alaska that aren't served nonstop fro...Jump to post
