CDG-YVR is usually a 42J 77W in the high season. Guessing there will be a few changes this time around between the end of the A380 and the small flu going around. IAD seems to have more F traffic than YUL does. Otherwise I'm sure YUL could fill the whale, especially during the high season. But I thi...Jump to post
Very brave of anyone to buy into VA at this time. The level of risk is off the charts on this acquisition. How can they predict the outlook for the next 6 months? No one knows where this is really going. Will there be a second wave? Third wave? Will there be a vaccine? When? The odds are increasing...Jump to post

I may be missing a couple more.
Sure sounds like KE simply does not want to help OZ. I cannot imagine that keeping 218 pilots current would fully occupy a simulator. As a WAG, let’s say that each pilot needs 5 hours every three months. That makes 1090 hours for all pilots every 3 months. There are approximately 2160 hours in 3 mo...Jump to post
I was in NRT a couple of days ago. Literally a ghost town, JAL, ANA and UA tails everywhere. Should have taken a photo. Arrivals was also empty, by the time I got to immigration no desks were manned, staff were just waiting sitting on chairs chatting and scuttled to their positions when they saw us ...Jump to post

A359 gives VA the flexibility of future A35K and A330neo. Say they focus on making LAX daily from the big East Coast hubs and HND. Maybe try to tie in with LATAM under DL guidance ? That could help poach QF traffic to SCL and beyond. JNB could also be a possibility.Jump to post
KE stock price took a hit on virus concerns, opportunistic time for DL to make their move That's an interesting thesis but you can readily chart Hanjin KAL's stock price for the last three months and see it's not true. https://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/180640?countrycode=kr Amateur mistak...Jump to post

French Bee is a 10 abreast A350, far from comfortable but they make PPT work so as long as tickets are cheap enough people will fly them. Corsair has been operating for a few years now and have some brand recognition. I've seem them advertise their NYC route at bus stops so we'll see how that goes, ...Jump to post

I’m gonna guess its because there are a Oneworld hubs on both ends, JAL is weaker in most if not all those other markets. Also there must be less traffic becausec JAL focuses all its connecting traffic through LHR and HEL whereas ANA can channel it through VIE, BRU, MUC, FRA. Also they do send more ...Jump to post
I'm just really confused at why T4 is the way it is. The space between old T3 and T5 is just so huge there could have easily been another T8 style terminal. And the amount of wasted space on the apron means this could have been done with relatively minor disruptions. How long it would have taken how...Jump to post
During the latest investors day Ben Smith said they wanted to increase fleet usage, it was obvious that JNB would be one of the victims.
On the plus side the KLM redeye means you still have options with skyteam even if there is no F. I wonder if places like TPE and SIN will get a similar treatment.
There are 12 COI 77W and they are getting retrofitted starting this year, I read somewhere that RUN would be the first destination to get them but I can't seem to find a link anymore. They are flown to PTP, FDF and RUN from ORY (CAY gets a 772). From CDG they are used on YUL, BKK, MRU and TNR. They ...Jump to post
I transitted through FCO last year and I must say it was a mixed experience. Went from a Schengen flight to a non-schengen one, the schengen area is extremely hectic, low ceilings, very narrow, overcrowded and signage was pretty poor. Immigration was in a pretty narrow and crowded corridor, glad I c...Jump to post
I see Eastar ultimately being folded into Jeju, with the LCC market outside of Asiana and Korean being Jeju and T'Way. Jeju can't expand with more planes since the MAX is grounded, and so acquisition is the way to go. Also, this gives Jeju more share of the domestic Korean market, where growth has ...Jump to post

I might be missing something here but there doesn't seem to be that much of a difference in seatcounts between a 767-300 and a A330-200 especially once the fleet is retrofitted with premium economy. I could see DL taking up a few A330-800 that would give some confidence in the program...Jump to post
It’s a shame, with a low cost base and some decent management, and infrastructure, combined with a fleet of narrow and wide bodies - GA and CGK could be decent hub in Asia. Sadly GA and CGK have neither of these. Good luck to them. Perhaps when Indonesia moves it to its new capital city they will h...Jump to post
I think JNB and LAX are certain to stay until the A380 stops flying completely for AF. LAX has been 3x daily 777 during a few seasons. I'd say JFK, MEX and PVG would be the last place the A380 goes to. A380 won't be flying to PVG in NS20 https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/287075/air-...Jump to post
I want a morning departure from ICN from KE. Please thank you. And if they get rid of the 748 because of capacity control then change the 777 for ones with the new cabins.Jump to post
Will AF retire their 777Ws early? I very much doubt that AF will become Airbus only within the next 10 years. As the 77W replacement is still a very open book you simply cannot make any definitive statements about it at this moment. I doubt AF would become a fully Airbus airline, ultimately they co...Jump to post

Is there a chance of Milano - Tokyo moving to Haneda? Bit strange to have Rome and Milano landing into different airports, no?

The reason VN has been able to grow profitably is that unlike its neighbours it has been allowed to grow with relatively low government intervention.

The seasonality of traffic flows on KE is staggering, I'm guessing they were using a 77W for the season. Looking forward to seeing how they'll perform with a 787 on the route.Jump to post
