So PHL and SEA will be launched next year, which is confirmed.
Otherwise, why don't they fly to YUL? Montreal seems to make sense to Aer Lingus considering they used to serve the city. Both AC and TS serve the market.
While not for emotional support, there was an incident where a snake came out of some baggage on a plane and caused more than a little scare.
I need to bring my emotional support ants onboard to calm me down, but that would be a terrible idea.
So it's pretty obvious Kuwait Airways won't carry Israeli's. Would Qatar Airways, Emirates, or Ethiad allow it even if they were transferring to another destination?Jump to post
That might be a glitch for Qatar?? Very odd as they have always been strong with LF at DFW. With Etihad, it's not certain that it is low yields right now causing them to cancel, but they believe that losing codeshare with American Airlines will cause the route to be unsustainable. They are also pha...Jump to post
I've never had to use customs at MCO (because of pre-clearance at YYZ) but the airport was very busy when I arrived and departed. Quite a few international arrivals I saw. SFO no doubt seems busy. The international terminal is handling more and more flights which is making it congested. And the new ...Jump to post
Didn't expect Aer Lingus to annouce Seattle, but it does make sense considering the technology connections in the Seattle area. Hopefully it will be a success. Otherwise, are all EI flights operating at T2? T2 is pretty busy and not all jet bridges can be used at once. I have also seen on google map...Jump to post
Nice to see ICN re-gain nonstop flights to Africa. I know KE served NBO but it's planned resumption was cut during the Ebola crisis I believe.Jump to post
I do recall Lufthansa announcing A380 service from MUC to LAX, HKG, and PEK. However, HKG and PEK will get the A359 and I assume when more A359's are delivered LAX will get it to. MUC-MIA going from an A333/A346 to an A380 is a big capacity increase. Is the market really that big to handle an A380? ...Jump to post
My understanding is they do for Beijing and Seoul, but for Mumbai and Bangkok its faster to go south and across Gulf of Aden ... El Al doesn't serve Seoul, but Korean Air does from TLV. They used to, I forgot they stopped. Which raises this question in reverse. Do Korean Air and Cathay flights to T...Jump to post
This is a really sad story. I'm sure anyone would be scared in this situation if it happened to them.Jump to post
This year seems to be pretty bad for QR. The embargo is no doubt affecting the airline, and they will probably lose money as an result. But they instead have been expanding to new routes instead of cutting back. For example, after IST got bombed, TK struggled for a while. But they cut back on routes...Jump to post
Pretty bland livery in my opinion.
JOON will take over CDG-BCN from Air France. In fact, CDG-BCN will have three low cost carriers on the route (JOON, EasyJet, and Vueling) while ORY-BCN will have Transavia serving the route. So all low cost airlines on the Paris-Barcelona sector, no mainline.
How many long haul planes does SN have? They only serve a small amount of destinations with there widebodies, which is North America, Africa, and India. Would a flight to DEL need a new aircraft or would SN have the fleet to do so? Also, SN has some pretty old A330's. I think some are over 20 years ...Jump to post
It seems like no other airline is doing this other than United. I don't think air quality would be a reason to suspend DEL, as I bet no other airline will.Jump to post
I believe LY cut TLV-GRU because of high fuel costs, but even if fuel costs didn't go up was the flight actually profitable for the airline? It would be nice to see LY resume TLV-GRU with the 787-9. I would never expect LATAM to fly to TLV, but hope it works out for them. They will have to avoid som...Jump to post
I really do feel bad for Qatar Airways in this situation. Forced to suspend some destination in the middle east, cannot use airspace of some countries that broke off relations with them, and having higher fuel costs. Quite sad to see this crisis still go on. If Qatar Airways is losing money, than wh...Jump to post
I don't understand why it's a big deal to be honest. Airlines change or end A380 routes from time to time, but a 747-8 is still a good choice of aircraft to send to JNB.Jump to post
While KLM does have some night flights from AMS (to places like KUL, SIN) a lot of flights happen during the day from AMS. For example, most European airlines fly overnight from Europe to arrive early morning in South Africa, to depart at night and arrive early morning. However, on AMS-CPT and on AM...Jump to post
What market is IAH-SYD serving? I would never expect UA to launch IAH-SYD in the first place but I assume there must be a lot of demand.
If NZ flies IAH-AKL there must be a lot of onward Australian traffic I assume.
Also, why does EVA Air serve IAH? What market is there for the airline in IAH?
It is true that EK and TK are different. EK has no domestic market and needs to rely on transfer passengers, while TK has a domestic network and an big network outside of Turkey. But still, TK attracts a lot of passenger transfers. TK is the largest foreign airline in TLV and most passengers flying ...Jump to post
I believe high fuel prices back in 2008 killed the route, but welcome back after nine years. Hopefully it is a success.Jump to post
If Emirates offered seven flights a week out of YYZ, they would do very well. The local market + onward connections make it very profitable. Why did Air Canada launch YYZ-DXB? It makes sense for Emirates to fly the route because of the small local market and the connections that make it profitable. ...Jump to post
Nice looking A332 for Condor. Otherwise, Condor and Eurowings have announced flights to Cancun, Punta Cana, Barbados, La Romana, Montego Bay, Orlando, Puerto Plata, and Varadero to cover the Caribbean and a little bit of the US that Air Berlin used to serve. Otherwise, will Condor ever replace it's ...Jump to post
It's been a while since I posted, but there was something I was wondering that I'm not sure of. 1) If you are on an Canadian registered airplane, are you in Canada theoretically? What I mean is if a passenger were to start a fight for example and the plane had to divert to an airport along the way, ...Jump to post
What country are you in if you were flying with a certain airline? So if you are flying Air Canada does it mean you are in Canada (in the plane) and have to follow Canada's laws while onboard the aircraft? Otherwise, I'm sure a lot of people get away with underage drinking on planes anyways. You may...Jump to post
YVR has been doing good with getting more airlines and increasing traffic. Air Canada has launched BNE, MEL, DEL, CDG, and ZRH as new routes. There have also been a few new Asian airlines in the last few years, like HK Airlines and XiamenAir for example. So they are growing pretty well.Jump to post
I really don't think weighing passengers is necessary at all. Most airlines don't do it and never will. If you bought tickets on an airline, you should be able to fly with them without your weight being checked.Jump to post
Well this for sure sucks. A pretty shitty way to mess up European airlines, making them avoid Russia like how BR and CI have to avoid Chinese airspace.
While this is unrelated, does AMS-TPE fly near HKG before landing in TPE? I thought it just went over China and went nowhere near HKG.
Well this isn't the only time an airline has wanted to leave an alliance for another, and has actually done it. Wait, so alliances like SkyTeam, Star Alliance, and Oneworld have the right to tell airlines part of the alliance they can only codeshare/co-operate with only a few airlines that aren't pa...Jump to post
