Re: Shortest Wide Body Service

In the past, UA had some interesting ones; DEN-COS and OAK-SFO come to mind. HA was flying the 767 between the islands a few years ago. DL flew the L-1011 FLL-MIA many years ago. The fact the routes like OAK-SFO and FLL-MIA were ever run, yet alone on widebodies is insane. I know FLL-MIA are about ...

Re: Detroit ranked best connection hub in America by J. D. Power

Am I the only one here who doesn't mind connecting through IAH? Sure the terminals are somewhat spread out, but they seemed to have pretty good transit systems to get from one to the other. I've connected there 6 times and haven't had a really bad experience yet.

Jetblue to DXB?

Recently, there was a thread about B6 stating they would likely be flying to Europe pretty soon, presumably with A321neos. However, if they were to somehow end up ordering A330s, is there a possibility that we could see B6 flying to DXB? They have a very strong partnership with EK, who dominates the...

Re: Should AB launch A310-300 based on A330NEO

Well if it ever did happen, it wouldn't be in the A310 name. It would probably be some form of the A330neo. Either restarting the A330-800 or making an A330-700 something is the best bet, and even that is very unlikely.

Re: Gulf Air to receive four 787s with crew rest areas for flights to New York and Washington D.C

I could probably see JFK and IAD working out for them. I know UA tried IAD-BAH in 2011-12 and was dropped a few years later. I'm not sure how the LFs were on those flights since UA did use a 772 rather than a 787.
