Besides YYZ, EWR, and IAD, how big is the ADD-ORD/IAH market? If they do launch ORD or IAH, it will no doubt be with an stop, maybe DUB for example. Otherwise, how is ADD-DUB-LAX doing? I've heard that it's not doing to well, even now considering EI is on the route (and the fact that they seem like ...Jump to post
Why did airlines in the Caribbean like Air Jamaica and BWIA fail? Otherwise, every other airline can get to places like Jamaica and Barbados. MBJ has service to MAN, BHX, LGW, and even farther into Europe with AMS, BRU, DUS, CGN, FRA and MUC. Jamaica also has countless connections to North American ...Jump to post
I think LEVEL was launched with IB aircraft, but still IB can help LEVEL out.
Is LEVEL cutting BCN-PUJ or no?
hello, there is some talk around Vancouver Airport that Air Canada is looking at YVR-BKK and YVR-SIN flights? It would be a nice addition but hard to believe there is enough high yielding traffic to support either. I also noticed Canada and Thailand updated the air agreement give an airline from Th...Jump to post
What is the Chinese government doing? Going on airlines websites to make sure Taiwan isn't considered an separate country? I'm sure there are other airlines that list Taiwan as an separate country who don't get in any trouble, or not even noticed at all. Also, the Chinese government does some weird ...Jump to post
What's the link of where you can book IAD-LAD? I wouldn't actually do it, but searching for the website didn't work out well for me and I couldn't find it.
Also, EY cut AUH-GRU, so AUH only has service to five continents, not six.
Just because an airline has to deal with snow at two of it's main bases (BOS and JFK) doesn't mean that it's bad at all. AC has to deal with snow at YUL, YYZ, YYC, and maybe YVR. If a flight is delayed because of bad weather it's not the fault of AC. The onboard experince could be amazing despite a ...Jump to post
This is the way that I would describe the difference between O&D and transit passenger. Let's use SK on CPH-SFO for example. There are passengers who fly from CPH to SFO who come from Copenhagen or other regions of Denmark. Passengers who fly back to SFO to CPH who live in Copenhagen or Denmark ...Jump to post
Nice to see LH replacing the A346 with the A359. The A346 burns a lot of fuel and the A359 should lower that. So by April 2018, the A359 should be flying to YVR, DEN, BOS, EWR, BOM, DEL, PEK, ICN, HND, HKG, and SIN if I'm correct. What is the long term plan for the long haul A330's at MUC? Are they ...Jump to post
Quite sad to see EY doing bad. There investments in other airlines seem do be doing rather badly. Air Berlin fell apart and stopped operations while Jet Airways is more comfortable with AF, DL, and KL now it seems.Jump to post

I guess it depends on the flight or airline you are flying on whatever you can film onboard or not. Some flight attendants care and some won't bother you if the camera is out. I don't think it's a crime at all to be filming someone or something stupid. If your being stupid enough that you should be ...Jump to post
This is gonna be a long route for sure. I find it kind of weird how ET flies to YYZ and IAD via DUB, but the return flight is direct because YYZ and IAD are not high altitude airports. A non-stop NBO-JFK will still have to deal with the high altitude on takeoff and there will be weight limits for su...Jump to post
Just want to say that Emirates flies DXB-GIG-EZE. EK has never flown the EZE tag on from GRU. Now that EK is flying the A380 to GRU, they would not extend the flight to EZE because they can't handle the A380. TK is an airline that does great in the TLV market for example. They offer connections to m...Jump to post
Lots of mainline carriers are making low cost moves (like no more reclining seats) but it is really not a big deal to me at all. Sometimes, all you want to do is get from A to B as cheap as you can possibly get. Some flights I've been on have been bad but it doesn't bother me. Having a bad flight ma...Jump to post
There is no doubt QR is affected by the blockade, and it's not gonna end anytime soon.Jump to post
LEVEL must be doing well on BCN-EZE. How many flights per week do they operate on the route? AR will never return to BCN, and LEVEL adding BCN-EZE made it even harder for them to do well on the route. AR will no doubt keep MAD. MAD is served by AR, IB, and UX with multiple daily flights. I also don'...Jump to post
So are passengers from China allowed to connect in TPE? Are passengers from Taiwan allowed to connect in China? Kind of confused because I've heard they can't but only from a few cities. I may be wrong. The ME3 no doubt are very powerful airlines that can take passengers away from other airlines. In...Jump to post
I think I read somewhere that ET wants to fly to MUC, but nothing has come up so far.
Why isn't BRU a non-stop terminator service from ADD? BRU has lots of demand for Africa, so I would imagine an daily or several weekly ADD-BRU-ADD service would work out pretty well.
I think that LY is simply an uncompetitive airline in general. Most people would choose UA over LY on SFO-TLV no doubt. First of all, LY is not part of any alliance and there not gonna join one anytime soon. I think that there security requirements are also an hindrance to some people choosing to fl...Jump to post
Royal Jordanian flies to Tel Aviv and they fly the route with there own aircraft in there own livery. Why does EgyptAir need to use Air Sinai?

I don't really understand why TK launched CCS, but it must be working. While a little off topic, TK does serve a few war zone destinations. Mogadishu is one of the them for example. What kind of market is there in Mogadishu when the country is in an war? Who would even visit Somalia in the first pla...Jump to post
I'm kind of shocked Icelandair will be cutting BHX. Out of all airlines, they have a lower cost base and much lower fares than more European carriers. You can get to many American destinations via KEF which I thought would have made the planes full. No doubt the proximity to LHR and other airports/a...Jump to post
United isn't the only airline to overnight planes or leave them on the ground for a long time. Sometimes, planes are left on the ground for a long time because they depart overnight, spend the day at the airport, and arrive in the early morning. Europe-South Africa is an market where that happens fr...Jump to post
IAH and HOU have both seemed to recovered from Harvey. I also found it kind of odd that in the middle of the hurricane or so UA announces IAH-SYD. Still an nice route though. If UA didn't cut IAH-LOS, IAH would have service to all six continents! I have an question about the Houston Express IAH-LAD ...Jump to post
I think I recall ET launching but cancelling plans for ADD-MUC-ARN. I'm still a bit confused whatever it's moving the TATL hub from DUB (which is YYZ and IAD stopping in DUB, but non-stop on the way back and LAX stopping in DUB both ways) to MUC, or if they just want to launch ADD-MUC instead. They ...Jump to post
I think I recall (or maybe now) DL using and 744 on ATL-HNL. Most likely the only scheduled domestic 744 flight in the USA.Jump to post
Has LCY-JFK been fully cut or is it operating at an reduced schedule?
I would assume BA has no plans to fly the A380 to JFK, which would no doubt be a very premium product to fly to New York.
So Air Canada basically dropped YEG-LHR because the Edmonton Airport operater advertised Icelandair flying to Edmonton? Or was YEG-LHR simply not profitable? KLM must be doing really well at YEG, handling lots of connections onward to other European cities. I think WestJet serves YEG-LGW seasonally,...Jump to post
Finnair is no doubt an amazing airline. The thing that is good about them is that they are not in any rush to launch new routes, and they they have managed to stay profitable and get out of bad financial situations over time and come back strong. Turkish Airlines basically has the same business mode...Jump to post
The A380 is just too big for most airlines. Even if EK and SQ ordered more of the aircraft it would stop at one point and production would end.Jump to post
Both KE and OZ have added A380 flights to places like LAX, which has most likely added a lot of capacity.
It really depends on the layout of the A380 for the airline, but maybe it needs to be fixed. Or instead just fly an smaller aircraft. 407 seats is quite small for an A380.
CLT is an strong hub for AA now, but it did sadly get a few international cuts. In Europe, MAN, BRU, and LIS were cut short. BCN is still operated I believe. Otherwise, LGW was cut but LHR is now operated twice daily which is much better. GRU and GIG were both cut as well. MAN, BRU, and LIS were no ...Jump to post
This won't affect EK much at all. They were forced to suspend DOH when the Qatar crisis started, and it isn't gonna end anytime soon. EK suspending DOH and Tunis won't affect much.Jump to post

So KLM is forced to stop widebody fleet growth because of AF demands? That's stupid.

Nice to see another airline than LX get the aircraft.
What routes will it serve? I would say South Korea, China, and other close markets like Japan.
I think that HA is an interesting airline. They have mostly an wide body fleet (with A321's coming in the fleet) along with 717's for short haul Hawaii flights. There network to mainland US is limited to SEA, PDX, SFO, LAX, SAN, SJC for example, and JFK is the only east coast route for the airline. ...Jump to post
I think the Transatlantic JV includes LH, LX, SN, and OS, but I may be wrong. I don't think Eurowings is part of it, but again I could be wrong.
