Any company can make a profit of they have a good plan thats executed correctly.
That said I hope Uganda Airlines has some tax money coming it's way when they start longhaul ops. Bigger second tier African cities like EBB are tough markets to crack in many ways.
You need a fantastic product, and more importantly product support, to break a duopoly. Airbus did just that to break the Boeing/MDD duopoly in the 70s but, Airbus also had to make some deals and practically give up profitability a few years to penetrate the market with the A300. Once they did that ...Jump to post

I live in Kansas City and unfortunately KC leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to mountain biking. I mean, for starters there are no mountains here. Lol. So I have a road bike instead. We have an amazing network of paved walking and biking trails in KC that allow you to completely avoid sharin...Jump to post

Since moving to Colorado last year, I picked up mountain biking. I love the invigorating feeling after a good work out as well as pushing the envelope on the downhills. I rode my bike today on some trails I normally do my biking workout on for the first time this year and I am exhausted! The combina...Jump to post

I know there are naysayers that know what they are saying, like an elf with a similar name to mine, If you're going to allude to someone, at least know what their actual stance is on the issue. Such a route, like any other, won't exist until its utility exceeds the opportunity cost. As of now, ther...Jump to post
Generally speaking I think the A380 was designed to operate on the same runways as the 747. The true limiting factor for the A380 is taxi clearance.Jump to post
The Twitter link is just the currently livery with a dark blue filter over it. If you look closely you can still tell the globe is gold. United isn't stupid, they won't leak their new livery before their big event.Jump to post
The numbers are diminishing but still strong. IMO there will always be a market for 50 seat RJs. Small but profitable markets good enough for a 145 but too small for a 175, legacy networks as a whole, good economic growth in the US, and even the pilot job market to an extent display that they have a...Jump to post

One of the reasons UA flies SFO-ICN is due to the large US military presence in Seoul.. There's a market there just like Delta has a market there. But? Does Delta have an interline partner there? UA has Asiana.. SFO-ICN is a large market in its own right. Plus even if UA didn't make money on it the...Jump to post
Maybe Russianized version of SSJ? Given that the example route was only FNJ-VVO They could use one of the Tu 204 they already have to fly to VVO. In the high season a capacity boost on PEK could be needed. I hope to see them going for one of those old Domodedovo frame I seriously doubt Air Koryo wo...Jump to post

IMHO, SA JNB-GIG-IAH might be a cash-cow now because current GIG-IAH demand. But SA Star Alliance pal UA wouldn't like it that much. Slightly OT, UA apparently holds traffic rights on GIG-JNB.

I've had WN pilots tell me the contrary, they think the MAX is a great plane and even dont understand the grounding. To err is human. I just hope, I won't have the pleasure to fly with one of your buddies. I dont have personal friendships with these guys, just overheard conversations and would talk...Jump to post
This is how it works? A country claiming that any rise to a occupying power of a defacto independent nation will be shot and therefore this power can occupy it without any resistance?

I looked forward to getting a new Ranger ever since they announced its coming to the USA. Then I looked at one and had sticker shock. $40,000 is way too much and I have lost interest in buying one. It's amazing how the same vehicle in Mexico with a 3.0 liter diesel engine costs only $16,000. Im on ...Jump to post
PHL also doesn’t really have the international tourist appeal that some of the other cities you mentioned have. That`s right, but PHL also serves Willmington, DE – the biggist and SAFEST hotspot of global tax evasion and shell companies. This fact won’t generate any mass traffic but it will help to...Jump to post
Hey everyone! My poor Trixie, a 2003 Honda Accord V6, is on her last leg.I bought her in 2013 from my then-brother's fiance (now my sister in law), who had it passed down from her dad who bought it new. She has 220k+ miles and is a tank, but she's nickel-and-diming me in repairs now as well as the e...Jump to post
Title says it all.
United announced it today at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.
May the Force be with you.
Special livery, I believe... Doesn’t ANA have a Star Wars livery, or two, already? Still cool to see variation when previously there was very little at United. ANA has three, actually. R2-D2 on a 787, BB-8 on a 777 and C3PO on a 767 (those last two might be reversed, but I am sure about the 787) An...Jump to post
I actually dont usually recline as much as I used to. Only really on long flights do I recline, or if I'm really sleepy.
Whenever I do recline I feel bad for the person behind me, but then I remind myself that that's the nature of air travel these days and that they can recline too.
Which US major?Jump to post
I would love to see the Battleship livery again. It’s nice to see the BA Landor livery again, which was similar and of the same era. I would imagine though that a lot of people would *not* want to see the Battleship again though, especially the general public. Saul Bass would be cool. Maybe they co...Jump to post
So the Relativistic Jets are what exactly? Are they ejections from the relatively slow spin at the poles of the Black Holes orbital spin direction?

As weird as this sounds, I hope Texas doesn't become blue, nor stay red. In my mind, a purple state provides the best balance for the political spectrum, both in numbers and ideals.
