Dhahran is a different city.
It was never about ignoring your posts Scottiedog, it was about the data required to open the thread. I don’t think there is a way of opening the thread without having to download your entire post?

Dammam was served by BA and Bmi in the past and Dhahran previously for many years from both Heathrow and Gatwick. I think for Dammam, the A32LR with either Saudia or SaudiGulf would be a suitable type. BA have evaluated a return to Dammam in recent years but it can simply make more money with higher...Jump to post
Nobody seems to have mentioned Cairo. Could Philadelphia to Cairo be a possibility?

What is the reason for Pegasus Airlines not to serve Saudi Arabia from SAW? (specially since they serve UAE, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar). It seems like a missing opportunity there; short flights and huge O&D and connecting traffic markets. TK has multiple daily flights to the Kingdom from Istanbul....Jump to post
With them being based at Dammam, are these likely to see longhaul service from there, or are they more likely to be based at JED/RUH?

Actually, in previous summers, 28 First seats and 104 Club seats have been offered on the double daily Jumbo. This summer, that is reduced to 14 First seats and 97 Club seats, so actually less premium seats than before. It SHOULD work June/July/August/September and I would expect May and October to ...Jump to post
PHL is one of the routes with round tripped bars. They remain onboard, and are restocked by the outbound crew. Therefore, they are unchilled.

Here are the figures;
First will see a decrease, from 42 to 28 a day.
Club World will increase by 42 a day from 152 to 194.
World Traveller Plus will decrease by 2 seats a day from 112 to 110.
World Traveller will decrease by 2 a day from 608 to 606.
World Traveller and plus loads are often overbooked and so the extra <acronym title="Nigeria Airways">WT</acronym>/+ seats will sell. Club and First on the other hand, i'm not so sure, Club is rarely booked over 40 out of 48. First I imagine will fail to sell more than 6/8 on a regular basis. I woul...Jump to post

As already commented, China is a long term plan. Chengdu is doing fine for a new route, and travel to that part of the world can be seasonal, which Chengdu is. It is a seasonal reduction.

I really think people should try the new cabin before assuming it will be hideous. I have sat in the new seats and they are fantastic.

There are no spare 3 class 772s in the fleet at the moment, and this is too much aircraft for the route anyway. Africa will be expanded in time, but not through dumping of capacity into markets that don't need it, leading to bad yields.
Certain areas of <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> are pushing for the refurb of the <acronym title="Fort McMurray (YMM / CYMM), Canada - Alberta">YMM</acronym> 772s and the longer term 747s.
