Re: Oregon Aviation Thread - 2020

DL released its latest W20-S21 Transoceanic schedule today which is subject to change, of course. Both AMS and HND are scheduled to resume from PDX for S21. As mentioned in earlier posts, PDX-LHR is not scheduled to resume. I find it interesting that HND will have more frequency than AMS at 5x weekl...
