On AA and CX...I thought that the reason why CZ left SkyTeam was to grow closer with AA, and CAN is only 100 miles from HKG. CZ is also anchoring PKX in association with oneworld.Jump to post

Route relevant, but with respect to DL...DL has the B77L, which is much longer range. Would this restriction be of no relevance to them, with Pakistani airspace reopened? (They plan to start JFK-BOM on December 22, JFK departure---BOM departs 2 days later.)Jump to post
LAX-PPT may indeed be high yielding, but do the fares cover AF's costs? For example, do AF crew still stay at the Le Meridien in Newport Beach for a few days? If YVR is subbed for LAX, it would probably be a cost cutting drive with most pax CDG originating. Most likely the move is just done to avoi...Jump to post
As a PHL fan disappointed FI cutting the season short yet again this year. Obviously they have there reasons my guess cause of the Max issues or bookings maybe low to there expectations.

A220-100 should be for HOP!.

Even Seattle to Sapporo-New Chitose is at the very edge of the range of the A321XLR with respect to range once headwinds are factored in. I can't see that working. You need a wide-body...and for 4-class markets, even a Dreamliner is too small.Jump to post
Unless the MAX was slated to fly JFK-MEX, I'm surprised that they're operating that on DL metal, given that AM on MEX-JFK is 4x daily (3x B738 and 1x B789). As for EK, I have to wonder if they could consider leveraging that morning airport gate to move on 2 days ATH-EWR to a noontime departure. Whil...Jump to post
What would G3 exactly want with the O6 AOC though? I can't see them starting a separate cargo carrier.Jump to post
At this point do they really need First class? But anyway this is gorgeous! This would likely be for JFK, FRA, and LHR, the premium routes in the system. Y probably remains 34"/17", which is what it is on the 3-4-2 layout - the current 3-4-3 is also 34"/17". The current 212-seat...Jump to post
Also, NZ isn't exactly an airline that could command enough J seats to even reach EWR, and if they did one-stop via LAX, they couldn't carry local traffic to New York...meaning a very empty plane on the LAX-New York sector as they have only one New Zealand destination---AKL (by contrast, NZ can leve...Jump to post
Sad... the MD-90 won't even live for 30 years It's impressive the MD-90 made it this long considering that fewer than 120 were built.

Probably a result of the MAX fiasco? Airlines that had counted on having the MAX are now short planes.Jump to post
I will say no, because you have the problem of the exit door limit. It would still be 440, the same as the Airbus A350-900. Currently, one carrier, E9, is brushing up close to that in an all-Y configuration (Y432). This is unlike the B773/B77W, with a 550 person exit door limit.Jump to post
For DL: as was once said a long time ago, they don't like big planes.

I think that DL is more likely on a B763 from JFK to DBV, 3-4 times weekly. I can't see them doing ZAG, as that can be handled via a connection in CDG or PRG.

I'd be looking at Asian operators for heavy intra-Asian routes.

The Project Sunrise aircraft will be something else. KE for similar regional hauling ...Jump to post

IAH-JFK on DL is definitely a battle between B6 and DL for JFK dominance (DL already flies IAH-LGA on the BCS1).
BTW, for LATAM, is this merely reflecting a switch from JJ to LA flight numbers? And if that's the case, why is FOR-MIA still on a JJ flight number on some days?
I think 787-10 would be a great addition to TK s fleet. Can do our european/cis/me/indian sub continent and some of far east routes.

With Delta up-gauging to larger planes domestically (going all-in on the A321/A21N and B739 as replacements for older MD80/90 planes, as well as up-gauging busier RJ routes to the BCS1, I'm surprised that DL increased its load factors to this much, especially with its biggest operations at ATL with ...Jump to post
An improvement would be less cramped seating on delta. Among the US3, Delta likely has the roomiest seats in Y on internationally-configured planes (31" minimum pitch, manufacturer-recommended seat pitch). The B752s are just 17.2", but that plane isn't wide enough to support a width beyon...Jump to post

I'd be surprised if this isn't toward another partnership. But the only airline that might fly from those markets to MCO is Spirit.

Another thing is that the A359 cruises at 0.85 compared to 0.82 of the A346. Flight time will be shorter. And with a 30J246Y configuration it’s low density.

Airlines have told me it’s it not just gates. The FAA also refuses additional arrivals and departures in peak times. So it’s gates and then a borderline slot system.

Who operates a 777 with 3+3+3 and 17-inch seats?
Those planes must have really wide aisles!
Are all the exits activated or just painted ? Does their seating arrangement require all the exits? Doesn’t seem that dense. More than 195 seats requires doors R3/L3 to be activated.

Wasn’t the removal of the 2L/R door to allow more seating and still keep legroom. I thought I recall reading that with those doors gone that space can provide extra rows.
