I could see another Western Europe route, as well as a Subsidy Express (aka China) route. Maybe China Eastern will extend their Pittsburgh route to AUS...
(how I weep for more flights from Japanese carriers)
Amused by CMN, Unsurprised by KRK/PRG, Disturbed by TLV.
Wondering if AA would start BOS-NRT (I reckon JL is doing well on that route)?
Narrowbodies have been TATLing for years, and on longer routes.
Next up, DL starts new flights to ATL.
of course it's a rumor...if it were true, it would be DXB-LHR-DTW, duhJump to post
Pyongyang and ? probably jet to the top of the listJump to post
Japan's worthy of all of your vacation time - particularly if you haven't been - so I'd just recommend PHL-DOH-Japan. Perhaps you could check out Doha.Jump to post

Why does this continue to happen? How often are non-American carriers crippled by computer failures? I’ve lived in China for 5 years and I’ve never heard of a Chinese airline grinding to a halt due to a computer glitch. Don't worry, the Chinese military makes up for the "lack" of glitchesJump to post
My contribution to this thread would be Chinese border crossing stamps: Luo Hu, Wenjindu, Shatoujiao, Huanggang, Shenzhen Bay, Shekou, Bao'an Airport (Shenzhen) Lianhuashan, Tianhe, Baiyun (Guangzhou) Changping (Dongguan) Gongbei, Jiuzhou (Zhuhai) Gaoqi, Tongyi (Xiamen) Hongqiao, Pudong (Shanghai) B...Jump to post
When I had a visa (to go and grab a bite/do shopping), the old JED was good. No, it wasn't good, but I appreciated that it was a major hub without much transiting between gates. The new JED looks like it could be as bad as any other standard megahub. When flying from North America, I try to fly thro...Jump to post
Based on Google Maps, I had no idea it was 48 minutes of travel time to ONT versus 46 minutes of travel time to LAX. I live in Culver City so I would never think of ONT as a time-saving option Luckily for CI that is where the majority of the Asian population lives in the LA area. Luckily? Pretty su...Jump to post
I think Russia's a great place to visit. Although airport immigration at ROV (Rostov-on-Don) took me into secondary (they REALLY didn't know why I wanted to visit their city), I never encountered any issues wandering throughout Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, or Rostov. In fact, Moscow is one of my f...Jump to post
Flew through MEX on Sunday connecting up to PDX.... Man, that is one tired and packed airport. New one can't come soon enough - no matter where it is! Sounds like you're describing T1. T2 is slightly better, if only because it feels less claustrophobic. (Tongue-in-cheek) how about expanding Toluca?Jump to post
I would say a big target here is Israeli tourists (like Lurvebus mentioned)! Although still not a huge number, the group has grown like crazy in the Philippines during the last few years. Going from 5,000 visitors in 2012, to 20,000 last year, the number has quadrupled in six years! This group toge...Jump to post
I was looking at EK flights into China recently (was making a booking) and had noticed they had cut the 2 new cities they had added in China-Yenchuan and Zhengzhou. Why were they cut? The obvious answer might be they're cities with very little demand, but surely EK knew that in advance? Or is there...Jump to post
LED didn't change after Leningrad became St.Petersburg.
I flew from CMN in 2012, and thought at the time it somehow was worse than the average US airport-- dank, hot, woefully overcrowded, etc, like the "NAIA" terminal of MNL, but without the bribes. (OTOH, CMN do have a train to the city...) Has it improved since then? In any event, nice add t...Jump to post
Does anyone have a listing of all the Chinese secondary city flights to the US? Has to be a rather big list by now. Below is the list for scheduled flights operated in 2018 - Excludes PEK/PVG/CAN: 3U HGHLAX 3U TNALAX CA SZXLAX CZ SHELAX CZ WUHSFO HU CKGJFK HU CKGLAX HU CSXLAX HU CTUJFK HU CTULAX MF...Jump to post
I'd rather airlines spend the money on almost anything else than these ridiculous videos. Put FAs in the aisles (just as they do on airlines without IFE), within three minutes they'll be done. (TK - among others - has a habit of taking off during the encore presentation anyway. For example, those &q...Jump to post
I’m surprised nobody has tried a nonstop from BKK. Thailand is an incredibly popular vacation destination from the US. TG had nonstops from JFK and LAX a number of years ago...I was on the LAX-BKK, think it was an A345 or 6. Premium economy, so not too terrible. Still, the routes didn't exist for T...Jump to post
I've flown TAROM three times in the past two years; not much, but each time I recall the Y seating to be quite spacious, c/o the 733s'. Also, my experience at KIV (Chisinau) was quite the opposite...check-in took an hour. In fact, they were still checking us in twenty minutes after it should have ce...Jump to post
How unfortunate. I'll bet Colorful Guizhou Airlines is raring to start the second PVG-PIT...
Now, if they could just amend the whole air force-controls-the-skies fly in the ointment, that would be a treat.
I the current Jeddah airport is a disaster worst airport I've transferred maybe 2 coffee shops no seating rude staff no flight info saudis airlines i mean service is good keep in mind no alcohol and their entertainment is very very censored they would cut a scene if the fck word is said or a kiss ....Jump to post
Then, Porter to LGA/HPN/somewhere-in-Florida perhaps?Jump to post
Looking post-modern (see: more and more Chinese airports) does not a pleasant experience make. ICN is a vastly overrated hub. The security area is tight, smoke from the smoking "lounges" regularly seeps out, seating is scarce, and post-security food options are a let-down-- while on my way...Jump to post
