Also, I find it quite odd that SZX is gaining flights to Europe when HKG and CAN are nearby. SZX has gained flights to FRA on Air China, and I believe BRU and VIE are planned by HU. There's absolutely a market for a LHR-SZX flight, probably daily, it amazes me that no one has applied or sought to o...Jump to post
The 787 ramp up makes a lot of sense now. This seems to be another order in the bag. No one wants to be the sole customer of an aircraft model anyway. The resale value will be terrible and you are forced to flew it to the end end of its economic life. If you do not have an inhouse maintenance team l...Jump to post
Given CZ's exerience with A380, doubt it. Although CA might be able to make that work but they already have 748. Doubt CA would make it work too because aren't they having trouble placing all on services. True, longhaul travel from & to china is quite lacking compared to its economy and populat...Jump to post

Actually if you look above at the reply from LAXIntl, China is excluded because it does not have an open-skies agreement in place with the US. Other countries without open skies are also precluded from being added to the JV. I thought that blocks JV between US carrier and Chinese carrier. I wonder ...Jump to post
The reason for the high number of searches is that there had been quite a number of error fare deals from HKG to KEF in the past year. Real demand-wise, there are tons of more obvious choices for a direct HKG-Europe flight, like BRU, LIS, BCN,WAW,OSL, PRG... ....and we're back from La La Land to co...Jump to post

I hate to make general sweeping statements but in the 15 years or so that iv been travelling to and from China with work Iv discovered in the last 10 years or so the folk from that country have become increasingly aggressive and find it very difficult to cope with any sort of "change" or ...Jump to post
This order, as already mentioned, is Airbus's to lose. I would be shocked if they don't choose the A321NEO. The only chance Boeing has at a spoiler would be the 737MAX-200 but I don't think Cathay Dragon is ready to become an ULCC just yet. Well...their A320s in coach (even those after the recent r...Jump to post
I observed on Transavia France that they need someone to fill the exit row. But it is not the case for Hong Kong registered aircraft. Indeed, Hong Kong Express up-sells the exit row on the flight and it is the first announcement they would make past 10,000ft immediately after turning seat belt sign ...Jump to post
BA have a monopoly at LHR, a third runway would increase competition significantly. That is why BA are against a third runway. Indeed, the greedy monopolists, and that's why there should be a 3rd runway, and their HQ should be razed, and they should have to pay for it too! So far, everything's work...Jump to post
They should have kept the V Air brand which was a much stronger brand after the two outrageous crashes.Jump to post
One of the challenges which CX did not (and probably could not) foresee was the popping up of tons of hub-skipping long-haul flights deep into the smaller ports of China thanks to the 787. These were the bread and butter of CX's longhaul strategy, being the premium carrier of China when every option...Jump to post
As someone from Hong Kong with a very simple tax system this just shows how complicated the US tax system has become which allows so many loopholes to be utilised by the rich and powerful with the poor and the working middle class paying much more than their fair share of tax. A simple tax system is...Jump to post
Indeed BR has been flying in typhoons where everyone else (in particular CI) has stopped flying for quite a few years already. It is a national pasttime on Taiwanese and Hong Kong aviation forums to have live posts watching the amusement of BR planes trying to land in TPE or TSA in times of typhoon ...Jump to post
From what I read here, if I am a shareholder of Brussels Airlines, I would do everything in my power to block the acquisition. It is probably foul play on the part of LH. I don't think any shareholder in their right mind would agree to this deal.Jump to post

Taipei Songshan Runway 10 is my pick. You can get blasted by anything from MD-82s to 787s and it is just the SXM of the east (without the beach).Jump to post
This new site is wholly another beast, which I cannot say I like it. The spacing is terrible and now it is only possible to see one post at a time on my screen and the white background hurts my eyes. Not to mention with phpBB this is as generic as a forum can get. The Eurowhite epidermic has got who...Jump to post
