Qatar Airways flies to Miami, but what market do they serve? I know it comes to the benefit of Qatar Airways that Miami is a very big oneworld hub for American Airlines, but what market do they serve in and out of Miami? Very few passengers from Miami would go to Qatar to just visit Doha, as well as...Jump to post
I believe Eurowings had planned this route before, but it was cancelled before it started. Nice to hear! Eurowings has been doing pretty well with intercontinental expansion out of CGN. Also, I have another question. I heard that sometime next year that Eurowings will start flights between CGN and I...Jump to post
I think I've read somewhere there is a rather large demand between Montreal and Beirut. Air Canada was going to launch YUL-BEY in 2003, but it was cancelled days before it was planned to be launched. Would it be reconsidered with the 787-8? What are the biggest connecting hubs for passengers between...Jump to post
I have a question that has always been on my thoughts about how an airline starts an route.
1) First of all, how does an airline find the passengers per day between the two cities?
2) How does an airline apply for a route and slots? Who do they need to go through?
Honestly, South African Airways does deal with the issue of government interference. The carrier would do much better of there were things done to protect it, including: 1) One CEO for the company who will make all the decisions for the airline 2) Profitable destinations for the airline- if the airl...Jump to post
Eurowings planned flights to Fort Lauderdale before switching to Miami. I think they made the right choice with Miami because Lufthansa Group airlines fly there already. With flights on Austrian to Vienna, Lufthansa to Frankfurt and Munich, and Swiss to Zurich, it makes much more sense. The Zika Vir...Jump to post
Hello there everyone, I have quite a few questions about Hong Kong International Airport. 1) How is the airport terminal coping with traffic?

I believe Finnair back in 2006 annouced flights to Kuala Lumpur, but they did not start. Would there still be a market for Finnair?

I made a similar post about how Guangzhou had so many flights to Africa, and my question sure got answered. Why does Beijing have so many flights to Africa then?

Other than Air Koryo, which has to use the North Korean airspace, what airlines use it? I remember seeing that many European flights to Japan flying over North Korea even though it can be risky.

Addis Ababa (ADD) is more than 7000 feet above sea level. How does Ethiopian Airlines manage to operate aircraft like the A350, 777, 787-8 out of the airport without many weight issues?

Why is there such a big number of flights to Africa from Guangzhou (CAN)?
I have some questions about China Airlines and EVA Air: China Airlines: 1) Does China Airlines have full access to Chinese airspace? They fly non-stop from Taipei to Frankfurt and Vienna.

SAS has quite a good intercontinental network from OSL, CPH, and ARN. OSL has direct flights to EWR and MIA. CPH has direct flights to EWR, BOS, IAD, ORD, MIA, SFO, NRT, PEK, and PVG.

Turkish Airlines (TK) is going through a lot of probelms right now.

South African Airways should at least keep LHR and FRA in Europe. I've heard somewhere that the Johannesburg-Munich flight is profitable. Is that true? Three destinations in Europe should work fine. Honestly, North America is not profitable for SAA. JFK should stay, while IAD should get cut. If Unit...Jump to post
The Lufthansa Group is a lifesaver for many airlines. Austrian Airlines was going through some tough times and needed to be fixed up in some way, and the Lufthansa Group helped with that.

El Al deals with many issues: 1) Cannot join an airline alliance (Star Alliance, SkyTeam, or Oneworld).

On arrival at TLV I didn't notice any additional security precautions, either.

Honestly, most passengers who fly on Qatar Airways in general are connecting passengers. A DOH-SJC route would not be viable. First of all, Qatar does not have a tech industry, instead an oil and gas industry. Second, Qatar Airways would more likely launch SFO than SJC, due to the big Indian populat...Jump to post
To answer you actual question, I don't think anything will be done to SFO in the long term. Enviromentalists in the Bay Area mostly prevent expansion work to be done on new land, and make it hard for new land at SFO to be created.Jump to post
Thats not the only issue SFO has to deal with. The International Terminal, divided into G and A boarding areas is also congested. For example, Boarding Area G (United + Star Alliance) is full. All of the gates are full or almost full, meaning airlines often have to wait for gates. From the morning t...Jump to post
