Re: SpiceJet Applies For U.S. Flights - DEL-JFK With 737s

Sounds like a potential route to transport vaccines and other COVID-related materials from India to the US. India is likely to be the main production center for a number of COVID vaccines-cheaper production costs coupled with large existing pharma production centers.

Re: First non stop Los Angeles (LAX) to Brazil ?

Not sure about Non Stop, but I know according to their 1960/1961 (not sure) timetable, REAL Airlines flew a weekly Rio de Janeiro (maybe it was Sao Paulo?)-Lima-Los Angeles-Honolulu-Wake Island-Tokyo flight on a DC-6.

Re: PIA first ever nonstop US flight with passengers

Would love to see PIA operating to the US, the demand is certainly there. I flew them NRT-PEK last fall and was impressed by the service and all despite the rather old (but still comfortable) 777.

Olympic Airways YAK-40s

After reading the recent thread of Western operators of Soviet Aircraft, it seems that Aertirrena leased out 2 YAK-40s to Olympic Airways sometime in the early 1970's. Does anyone have any info on their usage, routes, or why Olympic decided to lease out Soviet Aircraft? Any info on this or Aertirren...

United 787 at DFW

While I was taking the SkyLink over the parking ramps where Terminal F might be someday, I saw both a United 787-800 and a 757. I didn't think United schedules any wide body aircraft (or even 757s) to DFW, does anyone know why they would be there? The weather had been clear for a week so I'd be surp...

Re: Air Macau considers widebodies for service to US and Europe

Has Macau had any European wide body service since TP flew LIS-BRU-MFM years ago? Given Macau is a popular destination for a large demographic I could see it working, at least to the US.

Re: AA TATL hub pre-US Merger.

ORD was mostly for connecting from the Midwest/West Coast, if I recall correctly it may have had more TATL destinations than JFK during the mid-late 00's. DFW could get you to LHR, CDG, and FRA, and ZRH at one point I believe, but had much less scope. JFK I think was less destinations with more freq...

Re: MIAT Mongolian acquires 787

As much as I'd like to see MIAT at LAX or in the US/EU in general, my guess is it will be used on Seoul or Tokyo routes since those (especially Seoul) seem to be the highest capacity from ULN (KE A333/MIAT B763s are regularly scheduled). Could be for Berlin though, never understood that flight but i...

Disappointing, those were great flights across the pond if you wanted to pay ~150 each way. Understandable however given Norwegian's current situation x the MAX one.

Re: Airbus a330-900 460 seats

Is it too much to fit in an A330? Absolutely. But just looking at a couple prices comparing Cebu Pacific to a full service airline, things are 4-6 times cheaper. Even AirAsia is double the price. Personally I wouldn't pay for a ticket that's several times more expensive than the cheapest option.

So if this were less of a replacement for LGA and EWR and more of a Narita-style airport with connections to the NYC area, what airlines would it serve? Low cost long haul?
