Long haul is always more exciting. Even though I’m generally flying between places that I know very well (Denver and the UK). It just has a different feel. Perhaps it’s the meals. Or the blankets. I’m guessing it’s just the fact that you are (normally) heading overseas and for the majority on board ...Jump to post

I just checked Flightradar24 and the sky is pretty full of planes going transatlantic. I thought that flights to Europe were either banned or cancelled as of Friday. https://i.imgur.com/GquZYEb.jpg Certain passengers are banned. Not flights. There’s also a significant repatriation situation going on.Jump to post

My favs: Oslo Gardermoen Hong Kong Worst: Luton - awful in every possible way.

New York - London? Surprisingly there's only a few airlines connecting those cities. It might be one of the busiest city pairs when it comes to the number of flights, but not when it comes to the number of airlines. A few LON-NYC off the top of my head that matches your 'top'. American. British Air...Jump to post
I think November will be a defining moment. The current Administration seems less concerned with decreased competition, so another 4 years could see a green light for increased code sharing, alliances, or even mergers.
But a change in President may result in a very different philosophy.

I had a further thought about going through pre-clearance at YYZ during a ‘tech stop’ - what would happen if CBP deemed a passenger inadmissible (for Visa reasons or whatever)- if it happened at the US Gateway, they’d be detained, and put back on the Plane back to point of origin. This would presum...Jump to post
13 hour delay. AA. DEN-DFW. Initial plane had an engine issue so returned to the gate and was taken out of service. Was rebooked on a flight departing 4 hours later, but that (and the next 2) were cancelled due to storms. Finally got lucky. The final flight of the day made it out (13 hours after my ...Jump to post

I flew Gibraltar - Tangier on a regularly scheduled 737.
Can’t remember the flying time, but it was short. 38 nm.
The article states that TAROM has requested slots at LGA.
I question its veracity.

747 because the queens days are numbered, and I'll be able to fly 777s for another 30-40 years. Me too I would pick a 747 for that reason. However, I flew on an American 777-300ER for the first time ever from LHR to JFK last Summer and I was happy. I picked that one although I would have preferred ...Jump to post

I mean, it depends on your definition of 'big'? I would suggest using a benchmark of at least 100,000 people for Europe - I'm not sure though what a suitable benchmark would be for the USA.

Out of curiosity, why are SAS operating flights from CPH and soon to be OSL too to STN? Is it simply that there aren't enough slots at LHR to operate these extra flights? And if so, why did they choose STN over LGW (which is usually the second option for the legacy carriers)? One of the main reason...Jump to post
How about airports 11-20? Looking at this list, LAX, JFK, SFO all seem to be maxed out in terms of expansion. I know ORD and DFW are adding gates. How about the others? Of curse, airlines can upgauge, but it's interesting to see who's growing and who's not. DEN adding gates on all three concourses.Jump to post
Yes and No. Positive - They can be very competitive on price. I like that many of their flights out of Denver are on A321’s. The size of the A321 means that not every flight is packed like a sardine can. Often have an empty seat next to me. Employees have been both friendly and helpful. Negatives I’...Jump to post
