I just saw this on Aeroflot's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CVNL-njjPEk/
I'm glad Aeroflot is FINALLY resuming service to Cancun. Mexico is visa-free for Russian citizens for years and it only seem logical to resume service.

Its interesting the at Air Inuit is the only airline flying to the Canadian north. How come Air Canada doesn't serve this market?
Pre-COVID El Al was planning to start Tokyo Narita (NRT) non-stop from TLV, one of the key markets in Asia for high-tech businesses. Are they still planning on launching the route, if so when? They cancelled PEK, only have HKG, BOM and BKK/HKT in Asia for now.Jump to post
PTY is the biggest business destination in Central America from the Panama Canal to offshore financial services having links to places as far as Europe & Asia outside of the Americas.Jump to post
Any chance of IAD-PEK resuming on CA or UA?Jump to post
Is there any chance the GUM market is big enough for SFO-GUM? UA pretty much only flies GUM-MNL/NRT/NGO/KIX/HNL now.Jump to post
Holy crap. That's far more south that QF/LATAM's EZE/SCL-AKL/SYD/MEL. ANZ, QF and LATAM have never gone so far south over Antarctica. This is ETOPS330 territory.Jump to post
jayunited, what's the status of resuming flights to SIN?Jump to post
Is there a chance of NH/UA serving IAD-HND instead of IAD-NRT? Or is greater connecting traffic flows very important on this route? (And competing with KE on ICN and CA on PEK).Jump to post
I was tracking flights for fun and found out there's an Aeroflot B77W flying SVO-CTU (Chengdu, China). Is this just a one off cargo flight or is this a new destination for Aeroflot?Jump to post
Does anyone here know the market-share of Aeroflot on Europe-Asia versus the ME3 and EU3? Aeroflot flies to every major city aside from Ukraine in Europe and the majority of cities in Asia. Pre-COVID they had plans to expand their network in Asia to Osaka KIX, Mumbai BOM and Singapore SIN. With them...Jump to post
jayunited, any chances of launching SIN, ICN, HND/NRT, PEK, PVG and HKG? I heard UA flies to NRT/HND, ICN, and PVG right now.Jump to post
The Beijing Daxing wikipedia page lists Aeroflot service to Moscow SVO even though their current service is to Beijing Capital PEK. Are they planning to move like the rest of the SkyTeam carriers? Also are they launching Osaka KIX, Mumbai BOM and Singapore SIN according to the outdated pre-COVID wik...Jump to post
Remember UA is late due to SAA in Star Alliance but JNB IS THE BEST business market in Africa and the HQ of many African multinationals (MTN, Liquid Telecom, De Beers). Of course having no competition UA hit a home run on the 789 JNB-EWR.Jump to post
BNE-SFO/LAX is longer than SEA-HKG which DL tried to stretch the limit. I'd be curious to know the BNE-SFO/LAX payload on QF's A332.Jump to post
Remember QF have experience with ETOPS and has flown AKL-LAX on the A332. BNE-LAX/SFO is not that much longer.Jump to post

So Aeroflot Cargo flew MD-11's. Did they ever fly the passenger version before cargo conversion? Why did Aeroflot shut down the cargo division?
How are the yields on UA to PEK, PVG & HKG? Which Chinese stations are open on UA right now?Jump to post
How have been the loads + cargo on UA's new Africa flights? EWR-JNB/CPT, IAD-ACC.Jump to post

Aeroflot now have a industry leading product from SVO to LAX & JFK.
I was searching on YouTube and found these golden nuggets of Northwest TPAC history:
50th Anniversary of bridging the Pacific: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siIxUvbx7eQ
Northwest Orient Airlines in the 50's: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJdnAymPRzI
Polar routes. I know Russian airspace was opened in 1992.Jump to post
How are the loads/yields do you think DL will have on ATL-JNB with UA now daily on EWR-JNB on the 789 with the new Polaris on some flights? Is 2 US3 carriers on JNB too much or is South Africa an exploding market as it is rumored ATL-JNB pre-COVID was DL's most profitable flight due to no competition?Jump to post
I find it interesting VS now fly to the largest markets in Africa (LOS, JNB, CPT) and Asia (PVG, HKG, DEL, BOM) but not Latin America. The TLV route survives on US connections. Is there any chance of VS launching MEX, CUN or GRU? There is limited competition to Latin America from the UK with no ME3.Jump to post
I remember that VARIG served Japan by flying the GRU-LAX-NRT route with the MD-11/B743. Is this true and was there that much of a market from Brazil to Japan? I just read that Brazil has the largest amount of Japanese people outside of Japan.Jump to post
HA serves BNE but not MEL but MEL is the 2nd most important Oceanian city after SYD due to corporates and multinationals. HA is already there for LCC travel to the Americas via HNL. A far fetch when travel recovers is BNE-DFW on QF/AA in addition to LAX/SFO.Jump to post
The only reason to fly SFO-MIA is for *A Latin connections which in this age UA can provide itself via IAH.Jump to post
