With Etihad leaving AUH-GRU on S17 could EK upgauge some peak DXB-GRU with A380?Jump to post

AMS even has the natural resources link. No one will bet on this route coming back. There's been downturns before in that industry in the last 33 years. But only during the last 10 or so years competition from USA and Europe on the way to DOH got fierce with the QR and others growing like there's n...Jump to post
I'm really hoping that one of these routes will be a return to Johannesburg. I never understood why TAP dropped it in favor of connections through Maputo in the first place. There is a huge Portuguese population in Jozi and South Africa in general. Surely must have always been a profitable route? I...Jump to post
Look at USA-India flights. There are more than 3 million American residents of Indian birth. They represent a high family income cohort (higher than native-born or Asian-American), yet the number of USA-India daily nonstop routes can be counted on the fingers of a mutilated hand . http://www.pewres...Jump to post
I think this move has more to do with Etihad than Brazil - no alliance or partnership feed in Brazil or the rest of the southern cone of Latin America, and a business plan committing to profitability in 2017. Must have been a marginal route for them to begin with. They had Code Sahre with Aerolinea...Jump to post
So, here's a question - if EK has to cut costs and/or reduce employees - where are the majority of those employees from? Are they UAE citizens? Or, would most of them be foreign workers, who are working in the UAE (and on Work Visas), authorizing their stay as part of their employment? Or, are the ...Jump to post
I would've thought PTY before MEX. Good for ANA and MEX! By ANA's press release corportate traffic between Japan and Mexico has been growing steadily during the last few years, mostly due to auto industry. Their presence in NRT will help catering business traffic from ICN, PVG, PEK, SIN and HKG to ...Jump to post
AFAIK the last month of the "old" network was August, the same month as the article. The whole network was modified last May, while some minor changes happened on early August. But heavy losing routes were cut as early as January/16. Fleet utilization is now way up, revenue is similar to ...Jump to post
Nice additions to the network - although I'm surprised the likes of PUA, ZTH and MJV aren't being served from LGW alongside the other bucket and spade routes? Indeed nice additions! Maybe they want a share of higher yielding connecting traffic to these poorly served long-haul destinations, rather t...Jump to post
As soon as government approval is received. AM's CEO - Andres Conesa confirmed it was ICN yesterday during the meeting held to report the 3rd quarter financial results. Glad to hear about AM expansion to Asia! When is the 772 being replaced? Will 789 fly to GRU? They could replace 788 C class with ...Jump to post
As far as Elite benefits, if tiny GOL airlines can recognize my Diamond status online and give me comfort seats, DL & 9W can do the same. . I wouldn't call GOL tiny. GOL and Jet are roughly the same size in terms of fleet (115 vs 116) and destinations served (63 vs 68), but G3 carries more pass...Jump to post
Azul is not doing ok. They had BRL 750MM losses is 2015 (USD 230MM). If they were doing ok like Neeleman like to tell media, they would be flying to LAX, LAS and JFK like they intented 2 years ago. They had to get rid of several A332, AT7 and E95 to TP in order to reduce losses in Brazil and be less...Jump to post
I hope that this reflects that the flight is doing well? I would assume the route has been doing well for Turkish Airlines. Keep in mind Turkish Airlines is only using Panama City as a tech stop (due to weight restrictions and tire speed issues when taking off from Bogota I believe, due to the high...Jump to post
Brazil would not allow EZE-GRU ticket sales. LY could have 5th freedom rights on a hypotetical TLV-GRU-EZE flights. Its on Israel-Brazil bilateral. Just like EK, TK and QR does nowadays and LH, LX (SR also), BA have done for many years. Even AR on its glory days used to fly EZE-GRU-MIA and EZE-GRU-...Jump to post
Also, what flight path did El Al use on TLV-GRU and GRU-TLV? What countries did they avoid and fly over? LY would need to make a giant detour over the Mediterranean Sea all the way to Gibraltar as they cannot fly over enemy countries. Sudan, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia and Morrocco prevent a more direc...Jump to post
LY flew TLV-GRU for years. It had immediate connections to BUE with both TAM and GOL. Its poor product, coupled with many price competitive 1 stop options through european hubs and the detour LY plane had to do in order to avoid North African Airspace (expensive fuel at that time!) made the route a ...Jump to post

And what about EK and other ME3 destroying MH, TG, SA, KQ, SQ, CX, QF.....?
They are a Low Coast Carrier. It doesn't mean they are a Low Fare Carrier.Jump to post
Couldn't QF begin an flight Australia-DXB-TXL?
This way they could feed TXL (the largest gap on EK network IMHO) to DXB hub on a JV-like partnership with EK.
I wonder why no one here is mentioning LAN or now LATAM with their "mini-hub" (which isn't that mini) in MAD. They have a boatload of flights to Madrid every day from multiple airports and countries in South America and some of them continue on to various European destinations and the pax...Jump to post
I am the only person that feels that all this expansion by TAP is not going to end well for them? Portugal is not high-yielding market and LIS is congested and poorly positioned for connections except EU-South America... I share the same worries. Hope for the best, but it seems they could expand a ...Jump to post
GOL used to have GIG-GRU-EZE-SCL-LIM and FLN-POA-EZE-SCL-LIM, also GRU-CWB-ASU-EZE. They also had GRU-LIM nonstop, but the milk run used to cater to individual demand with 5th freedom right.
LATAM Brazil in november is beggining GRU-SCL-LIM with A321 and GRU-EZE-BOG with 763.
Even if there are lots of tourist at the Cayman Islands, long haul would not be profitable. Why does British Airways fly to Grand Cayman? BA flies 4 or 5 weekly to GCM with a stopover in NAS on a 763. They may get an interesting mix of high end tourists, VFR and some few business (banking) linked t...Jump to post

At that rate of growth, Trans Atlantic nonstop appears inevitable.
SIN-Africa is much higher yield than BKK or KUL-Africa albeilt lower volume.
It's possible for ET to be profitable even with emptier planes.
I also believe they could eventualy extend the SIN service to other lower yielding Asian destination such as MNL or CGK.
