Re: Do you think that PHL-CMN will be a succes?

I think it will be a success because of all the connections to/from various African cities at CMN...but EWR or JFK would have been more logical O/D destinations. The airport in CMN and ObeWorl partner Royal Air Maroc is very poorly run and when there are delays or missed connections, customer servic...

Re: Turkish Aviation October 2018

Does anyone know why TK is planning a triangular IST-NDJ-FIH-IST flight once a week? Flying from Ndjamena to IST via Kinshasa seems very odd.

Re: United Announces EWR-PRG, EWR-NAP, SFO-AMS

Nice Add and very nice layovers for the crews assuming they get down town hotels. Naples is still one of the most dangerous cities in Italy for muggings -- including the city center. Always leave your hotel room with little cash, no jewelry and no watches. I lived in Italy and still have a lot of c...

As far as I know, NO. Meridiana had a seasonal B767 service.

Re: CIs next US city-MKE? What others?

The only international sce out of MKE (other than Mexico) that you can hope for will be to Reykjavik with Icelandair (B737max)...potentially British Airways to London and/or Condor to Germany (on a seasonal basis)..

Re: Aeromexico looking to launch flights to Beirut

Despite all the drama in the thread, I actually think this route would work. Of course I realize it is not going to happen anytime soon, clearly all of this talk is just about a code share via Madrid. A few reasons why this can be a very successful route: 1. There has not been a direct connection b...

TK to start flights to Moroni, Comoros. An Island off the Coast of Tanzania, with a population of 800,000. It is just amazing how far TK is trying to reach. Will that be non-stop (A330) or with a stop (B737-900ER)? Moroni is the capital of Grande Comore, one of the 3 islands that make up the Comoro...

Re: Ethiopian starting EWR-ABJ-ADD flights

Will be interesting to see whether ET manages to eat into AF's lunch on this routing. AF has considerable local loyalty, and from what I've seen seems to achieves both high load factors (including in J, with an A380 used on the route) and relatively high prices - while managing to aggressively pric...

Re: Ethiopian starting EWR-ABJ-ADD flights

ADD-LOS-IAH would be a great addition. On the ADD to EWR route, I'm sure Freetown and Monrovia would be very happy to get 2 flights a week. At a later stage, Conakry and Cotonou (served by Pan Am until the 1960-70s) and Banjul (served by North American until the 90s?) would all welcome direct servic...

Re: Passengers Clapping

People who usually don't fly a lot tend to clap. In France, people tend to clap on low-cost carriers on flights to/from vacation destinations (ie, people who fly only once a year or every few years). Palma de Mallorca to Paris would be a clapping flight.
