But if they are trucking everything from PIT, I am sure it would be more cost effective for EFL to have the flight diverted to CMH/LCK instead of PIT. So that they can truck everything from LCK instead? What difference does it make if everything is trucked from LCK vs. PIT? LCK is most likely a mor...Jump to post
The Saturday morning flight is currently enroute to ORD which has a flight plan filed to continue to PIT: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/QTR8142 Looks like it went straight back to LUX from ORD, and the Flight Activity history from FlightAware shows it did the same last week too. What a huge b...Jump to post
The 77L is also on ATL-PVG even though it can be flown by the 77E. The reason is to maximize the high yield cargo coming out of PVG (Shanghai, China) which includes electronics without their batteries (e.g. cell phones/tablets) and PVG is such a transit hub (and so is ICN with even higher yield ele...Jump to post
Has anybody seen the flying goat in and out PIT so far? Is the QR flight cancelled? Looks like the Tuesday evening flight is axed :/ https://www.qrcargo.com/docs/03.%20Winter%2019%20Freighter%20Schedule%20Issue%203.pdf IIRC this is the flight that was accommodating EFL Logistics of Sri Lanka, so th...Jump to post
QR had something similar in the past where they codeshares DOH-EU for CX. I wonder what happened.Jump to post

Indeed. I believe they had ordered 2 B77Fs but cancelled the orders later. At least now AC Cargo will actually have a "fleet".
Would it not make sense for AA to enter in a JV with AT or QR ex LHR for an asset lite option into Africa or India?Jump to post

Forgive my igornace, Ben Smith is no longer the CEO if Air France; correct?Jump to post
I believe Trinity Logistics renewed their BSA on this which is why the routing still occurs. They have a very strong relationship with EY.Jump to post
I think the reason why the outbound cargo is low is because of the Qatar cargo service, it's probably easier to send cargo to Luxembourg then ship out to the rest of Europe LUX is QR’s is one of their many EU hubs and moving freight beyond LUX or DOH is not an issue. All freight from LUX is usually...Jump to post

Exciting! Glad to see IG expand!! Hope we see further expansion out east towards Asia too. How’s their euro network looking? Be good to see them in Oneworld too, at least as a connect partner! I’m sure their routes would enjoy feed from AA! I too would love to see the feed happen between AS and IG....Jump to post
I've always wondered why Columbus and Cincinnati have such big cargo operations and Pittsburgh have such a basic cargo lineup. I heard someone say that Columbus is in a better spot but I don't think so, Columbus is only 150 mi from Pittsburgh so it's not location and it's not size since Pittsburgh ...Jump to post
One thing the 777F has over the A330F is the fact that you can carry much larger oversized freight through the door. Max height on a 77F is 116” high whereas as the max height on A330F is 94” high. On the A330F you have to manually push the pallets which is not fun. On the 77F, its operated with a j...Jump to post
Would make sense to just funnel all their passengers through DOH and let QR do the heavy lifting into Australasia.Jump to post
I feel like QR should start its own alliance. They technically have an equity alliance with all the airlines they have stake in. If they really wanted to spite AA and QF, they could buy all stakes in each OW member. So it would be an alliance within an alliance. But that type of spiteful behavior w...Jump to post
What I am saying is if AA plays nice, they could get the feed from the zones I mentioned in a JV or code share which would help widen their presence.Jump to post
Some cargo airlines are operating round the world flights. QR just started one with DOH-MFM-LAX-MEX-LGG-DOHJump to post
AA would get the Africa, ISC, and South East Asia feed. Granted CX and BA do preform the heavy lifting into those sectors, QR is definitely stronger into the ISC than CX.Jump to post
If anything, AA should focus on trying to lure JL into T8 with them to provide a more seamless experience for their NYC-TYO passengers. CX has HKG covered very well. The only market where I could see AA trying to gain some type of foothold is JFK-PVG, but I don't see any reason why that would end u...Jump to post

I believe the intial plan is to build this in phases. The PA are definitely learning from the LGA redevelopement project on how to build an airport while its fully operational.
