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.Jump to post
Million Dollar question, will Saudi Arabia give them overfly rights like they did for AI. I don't see EY launching flights but Air Arabia for sure, maybe even Wizz Air. As for EK, before corona they could have easily filled triple daily flights (A380, A380, B77W). Lots of demand to places like Indi...Jump to post

That is odd ball timing. A new route to a city that is seeing a major spike in COVID cases in addition to it’s main source of revenue, oil on the decline. Never mind that most countries are banning travel to and from the US. What makes Caribbean Airlines so certain that all will be right with the wo...Jump to post

Braniff's 2nd 747-100, painted Green, often referred to as 'The Big Pickle'. It was rumored to have painted and ready for delivery to join up with 'The Great Pumpkin', only for Braniff to decline to take delivery of the aircraft. To date, no photographic evidence has yet to surface. There are models...Jump to post
Wow, DFW must be so proud to crow about this during a pandemic. Enjoy DFW, I assure you ORD and ATL will regain their throne and likely sooner than these so-called "experts" predict. Pfft...two-three years..?!....try two to three months.Jump to post
They should add BOS to that list, a very important market, Boston.Jump to post
While not quite as dramatic as the Qatar video, I do recall this clip of a Westjet 737 being blown off its jetway at Halifax.
I live in BOS, I fly B6, I like(ed) B6.......B6 this is BS! You took my tax dollars and now you want to run off with it without holding up your end of the deal? I fly to some of these cities on a semi-regular basis and now you are wanting to leave me and others high-n-dry. B6 isn't done. They are no...Jump to post
Have you checked Trip Report forum? I saw many TWA Hotel photos in one thread there. You know, I never thought if that, I'll give a shot.

I searched through three pages in this forum and could not locate any thread on the titled subject, so if I missed it, please paste in a link. Anywho, once this COVID garbage settles down and flying for the great unwashed masses returns, I am thinking about flying down to NYC from BOS and spending a...Jump to post
Mixed feelings on this. The idea of allowing the Government to dictate which routes a carrier to serve al la the CAB back in the day, not good. However, the agreement clearly states what will be expected of said carrier. And I believe that similar rules are being applied to other industries. Again, ...Jump to post
Watch the U-Haul movers and rentals around Houston and how much business will increase.

Looks like Houston is getting snubbed by many of the former int'l carriers that once operated there and yet DFW is seeing several airlines such as Qatar, Qantas, Emirates, JAL scheduling their returns. Sadly, the same is happening here in BOS, with the exception of Emirates, so I guess we are in the...Jump to post
So, this is nothing more than a ” repatriation” flight? What is the big deal? I mean, almost every US city are seeing these in one form or another, we have seen a ton here in BOS, no big deal made out of it. Now had it been a new or a service re-start, then yeah, newsworthy, though given SAA’s curre...Jump to post
I sincerely doubt that AUS, IAH or DFW will see any resumption of int'l service on the scale that it was prior to Covid. On top of that, the slide in the price of oil will have a huge impact on Houston's marginal routes like Lome, Taipei, Istanbul. Most of the tentative re-start skeds that have been...Jump to post
I suspect that any new routes will be on hold well into next year, especially to smaller markets like SAN or SEA. If any new int'l routes are started to the US will the proven mainstays like JFK (possibly EWR), LAX, SFO, MIA, ORD, and IAD.Jump to post
Are they still doing the Houston service? It would shock me if they were, I never understood why that route was started in the first place.Jump to post
How many of these carriers will return to DFW after Covid is either eliminated or at least some sort of therapy is created and some normality returns to the travel sector? I suspect very few, most will likely re start the major markets, NYC, LA, SF, BOS, D.C. , MIA etc...smaller markets like Dallas,...Jump to post
"Braniff"? What's "Braniff"?. Eye roll on THAT :roll: WOW :o Agree. The summer of '83 was just a little after Braniff (the 'real' one) had shut down in May of 1982. You honestly did not remember them just a year later? Well, the way I read it he seems to have been a kid (late te...Jump to post

You’re full of it. Go troll somewhere else. Ethiopian is adding a fourth weekly flight to Houston starting in June. I expect to see it go daily within 2 years. Very happy to hear that!

I am curious as to why are Amazons 737s painted in that eye-catching blue livery (one of the best that I have seen in recent years considering the Euro-White trend over the past few decades) and the 767s in the less remarkable "Euro-White" scheme?Jump to post
