Let' s make things clear... Revenues - EXPENSES = (1) if this is positive number, this is a PROFIT, (2) if this is a negative number, this is a LOSS. If One Mile at a Time reports that Air Italy is having MASSIVE losses, it is simply not true, as Air Italy had € 119.58 of PROFITS (yes, the airline m...Jump to post

According to thepointsguy.com, in 2020 AA is to return to TLV 3X weekly from DFW on 789. This service comes after AA closed the US Airways destination back in 2016.

I am seeing that the cheapest published R/T fare is at EUR 1,021.09 and I know that AF offers subsidized fares to CDG via YUL that could be in strong competition. Unfortunately, I have been unable to pull the AF fare to make a rough comparison but do you think that EUR 1,021.09 could be competitive?...Jump to post
Tower Air had a strong relationship with the Department of Defense, as it shuttled military personnel to and from Europe first and to and from Middle East later, during the first Gulf war. As of passenger services, I remember having charter flights to CIA (Rome' s secondary airport), all economy.Jump to post

One of the most famous ones was Northwest Airlines (NW), which in 1992 reduced the DTW NRT flight from 13:30 hours to 12 hours or so when the Russian government granted the possibility to overflow Siberia.Jump to post
Ok...GRR would really be a strange one. What's the reasoning there? Agree. Great way to rack attendance to that convention, by imagining the unimaginable. Filling a TATL from GRR is totally insane.

DTW is home to one of the largest ethnic Middle Eastern groups in the Western hemisphere. Why EK or anyone else (other than RJ) never thought about a direct DTW-Middle East flight?

Etihad is (was) a shareholder at Alitalia. With the Italian government owning 50 % of the airline very soon, apparently Etihad is not going to be part of the "new" Alitalia.

This is my experience about transatlantic sales in the 80s.

Good stuff, really. But has not all of this already happened? The article is dated January 24, 2019 and talks about 46 new routes to be established in February and March 2019.
It appears than anything this article predicts is obsolete.

Sorry, but an airplane ticket is nothing more than a transportation contract and as such, an airline has the right to refuse to enter such a contract, if it chooses to do so. It is not a privilege.

TWA 847 operated from Cairo to San Diego stopping in Athens, Rome, Boston, and Los Angeles. This flight was hijacked in 1985.

I might think because their "updated" models.

A silly thought... seen the reduced success (or possible failure) of the A380 project, could Airbus see in the Airbus A330-743L Beluga XL the possibility of a passenger variant?
