Did B6 bring back BDL-SFO/LAX yet? Does anyone have an update on those (if they will ever return)

Re: US flight attendants are not required to clean toilets onboard?

I think its safe to assume that all asian carriers regularly clean the lavatory (even in economy class)

Re: Fresno Aviation Thread - 2021

So with the potential of another Mexican airline and more cities in Mexico, along with current carriers maybe wanting to add more routes from FAT, I wonder if they are looking at adding more gates or room to the expansion?

Re: Fresno Aviation Thread - 2021

For these routes, I'd guess: IAH on UA E175 HNL on AS 737 or WN 737 MSP on SY 737 or DL A220 NYC ... can't really see it happening, but B6 is the only logical airline, A320. For JFK, is it more likely they will operate the A220 or the A320? Would be interesting to see if that’s one of the routes un...
