Re: Australian Aviation Thread - July 2019

I read that all LATAM ETOPS problems are fixed. LA802 is blocked at 13 hours 15 minutes east-bound SYD-SCL (1000 to 0915) and LA803 is 14 hours 45 minutes west-bound SCL-SYD (0130 0615) in 2019. I wonder how much longer the flights is due to ETOPS 330 compared with QF27/28. LA802/LA803 will become ...

Re: Is there a airway from Chinese Tibet airspace into New Delhi Indian airspace!?

Himalayas is the barrier, the mountain range is mostly 20,000+ ft. In addition Tibet is restricted air space controlled by China. I'm not sure what is more of a barrier: Himalayas or Chinese regulations? :stirthepot: There are (minimal) KTM-LXA flights by CA and 3U, so there would be a route there,...

Re: AirAsia India Eying International Flights Before Year-end

I wonder if they will tap in to the Gulf market. With many parts of India being price sensitive, 9W disappearing (especially from AUH), Qatar having limited rights for QR to India, etc., there could be some opportunities to take the AirAsia brand a little further west.

Perhaps this can grab a share of the Umrah and Hajj travellers with the high Muslim population in URC travelling to JED/MED. Interesting idea :) Interesting idea indeed.

Re: Qatar Airways "Prepped and ready to land soon from Doha to a new gateway."

Let me make a radical guess. Urumqi is a major gateway of Western China, and since Air Arabia is pulling out of URC and they have some “special relations” (aka shareholding) with the hub operator or URC (CZ), will it be possible? I mean, seriously, that can be flown in an A320. Perhaps this can gra...

Re: Buying a ticket to an unknown destination and airline sends you where they want.

In Australia, Qantas and Ansett did mystery flights. Perhaps someone knows if Australian Airlines (the original one) did as well?

They were as day trips, so would generally be somewhere close e.g. from MEL would be places such as HBA LST CBR ADL SYD. Not sure if they went any further.

Re: How Will Etihad Cope With 10% Base Reduction in Passengers in "Perpetuity"?

With 9W dying a slow death, and may then be unable to get passengers from the regional airports to an EY station, perhaps EY can use the remaining bilaterals 'plug the holes' in the Indian network? There's a few spares lying around so why not replace 9W's once-a-day to Pune, and Goa a couple of days...
