Re: Houston Aviation Thread - 2020

EK 777, QR A350, KL 787/777, BA 787, LH A330, and AM all serving IAH on regular basis. ANA and ET return in November. What about Air China. I would not hold my breath on these guys (or any mainland Chinese carrier) ever being let back into the US for some time and rightly so, all things considered.
