All aircraft worldwide need to be grounded. it is the only way we contain and BEAT the virus.
However, greed will mean that the virus spreads.
Anyone think VS would try to trump QF and do a non stop flight to Australia? Maybe DRW or CNS? Then a tag on to SYD/MEL?Jump to post
84 possible routes from London: SVO, DME, VKO, ATQ, ADD, NBO, YUL, ORD, YYZ, YYC, YEG, YOW, YVR, SAN, DEN, CPT, MCO, SIN, NRT, HND, TAS, EZE, GIG, CDG, SCL, MEX, CUN, SWF, STL, PHX, PDX, PTY, BOG, UIO, GYE, LIM, ACC, WDH, NGO, SYD, MEL, AKL, PER, VVO, OVB, CGK, DPS, SIN, KUL, TPE, AUH, DXB, JED, RU...Jump to post
Routes that would almost certainly work for VS with the right aircraft (A350), especially for their leisure travellers:
Africa: DAR, SEZ, CPT, HRE
Middle East: MCT
Subcontinent: BLR, MAA, HYD, CCU, KTM
SE Asia: BKK, HKT, SGN, DAD
Far East: HND, CTS, ICN
Phuket was rumoured a while back wasn't it?
Anyway I would jump on a limb and say either BOG or DAR.
How much fuel are they permitted to land with?Jump to post
Reports of QF10 tail strike leaving LHR, currently returning to LHR Currently circling Dartford area, this is Yam Dreaming livery 787-9 too. Yep, VH-ZND. Imagine it will have a lot of fuel to get rid of before coming back Ouch. Of all the flights to do that today, it had to be QF10. What a waste of...Jump to post
Just an update on this afternoon's flights: British Airways and Virgin heavy arrivals cancelled: BA272 from SAN (747) BA192 from DFW (747) VS24 from LAX (787) BA108 from DXB (747) VS156 from LAS (787) BA84 from YVR (747) BA274 from LAS (747) VS251 from PVG (787) Nothing after about 4pm seems cancell...Jump to post
BA196 Houston to London Heathrow is flying on to Frankfurt after two missed approaches. Seems all of the airports in UK and Ireland are having trouble. QR3 has just gone around at LHR, looks to have been the second missed approach. You mean QR7? The A35K? It was scheduled to land at 13.20, so is ac...Jump to post
Don't know why anyone would want to divert to STN - it's appallingly windy here. I am in elsenham right by STN and the wind is horrendous I'm 15 minutes away from STN and about 1hr15m away from LHR (traffic permitting), so I am curious as to how that distance (25 miles?) differs in terms of wind sp...Jump to post
The west side of Myanmar is severely under-developed, despite historic temples and glorious beaches. Although Yangon and Mandalay have successful international airports, Bagan remains domestic only.
I am sure the likes of Thai Smile and Air Asia would make daily flights to NYU from BKK or KUL.
What a weird route. Never had a Caribbean to Poland flight before. No Caribbean involved here... :boggled: From Fortaleza, the planes landed at Las Palmas, right after crossing the Atlantic. Las Palmas is frequently used as a fuel stop by Brazilian Air Force planes on transatlantic trips. and I gue...Jump to post
Not sure if posted before: Brazilian Air Force sent two Embraer 190 (VC-2 FAB2590, 2591) to Wuhan, to pick up Brazilian citizens in there. Route: BSB-FOR-LPA-WAW-URC-WUH A quarantine zone have been established in Anápolis Air Base (near Brasília), where the flights will land and passengers will be ...Jump to post
What is the situation with Singapore Airlines?
I would imagine they keep flights to the likes of Beijing, Tianjin, and Qingdao, but why haven't they suspended all other destinations yet?
I think this is the end of Hainan and China Southern. Maybe even Air Asia could go under.Jump to post
Etihad should suspend all China services until May 1.Jump to post
Slightly OT, I suffer from leg cramps, and because deep heat muscle spray isn't allowed onboard (aerosols) I had to use the cream version instead. When I felt my calf muscle tightening a few hours into the flight (LHR-SIN) I went to the toilet and rubbed some cream on my leg. I didn't even think abo...Jump to post

I see Virgin still haven't suspended their flights to PVG. Typical Branson...Jump to post
I suspect that VS will not suspend flights to PVG as it will want to maximise the pax on the route with BA having pulled out.
Branson likes to do that kind of thing, but I am not sure it is a wise decision in the midst of a global pandemic soon to be as big as the Black Death.
Anyone got a photo of a Singapore Girl wearing a facemask? Must not be good for the brand.Jump to post
Any reason why he flew BA?
Air Canada has cheaper fares and is well known as a better performer on the route.
Even LHR-SIN-HKG on SQ and then HKG-YVR on CX would have been my preferred routing, although now he has to pay out of his own pocket, I doubt Harry would want this.
Could they not have landed on auto pilot?
And I thought runways had radar to help landings in poor visibility? Surely ADD has this?
Just a slight correction - the outbound flight number is 211, resulting in the following schedule: BA207 LHR - MIA 09:35 - 15:25 AA39 LHR - MIA 09:35 - 15:40 AA57 LHR - MIA 11:35 - 17:35 BA209 LHR - MIA 14:15 - 20:10 BA211 LHR - MIA 16:10 - 21:55 BA206 MIA - LHR 18:15 - 06:35 AA56 MIA - LHR 19:05 -...Jump to post
British Airways has loaded back it’s third daily Miami-Heathrow flight, recently suspended due to fleet engine issues with the Trent 1000 that caused decreased long haul capacity. Interestingly, it’s a post midnight departure from Miami. I’ve never seen that. Service resumes October 25th 2020. BA 2...Jump to post
Has there ever been non stop flights between these two destinations? It seems Garuda cannot do this route seeing as LHR-CGK is a loss maker for them. However, what about the likes of TUI or Norwegian? At least from maybe LGW, you would think BA would start seasonal service? How is there not enough d...Jump to post
I always wondered which of the European routes of SQ has the best yields (or worst). I fly from London many times a year and the outbound flight SQ317 is half empty (I wonder if all 4 flights daily from London are like this). Copenhagen, Paris, London, Manchester, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Munich, Mila...Jump to post
Maybe SQ to replace their 787s on local routes?Jump to post
Be it BA or AI, I have always wondered why CCU is not served directly from LHR. Kolkata used to be of historical significance in Empire days and I would have thought a lot of Kolkata diaspora still have descendants in London (or at least Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham etc.).
