If you read the trip reports, one could argue AA doesn't do F either. :stirthepot: :duck:

Re: What Are Delta’s Premium Routes?

I'd guess ICN, PEK, PVG, potentially CDG. However I suspect that there's overlap and LHR/HKG would make it into the list too.

But good question, this is just my guess. Looking forward to what more knowledgeable can provide.

Re: LH introduces revised livery

Yet another classic livery flushed down the toilet - change for the sake of change. This is ugly, drab and souless. You'll no longer know a Lufthansa plane from far off in the distance. It'll look like a freighter jet. All blue and white. Could it be more drab. This may be worse than Delta's dull a...

Re: LH introduces revised livery

Too bad they didn't intro the livery on the A380. In my opinion, due to the massive tail, the design actually looks better than on the 747. As much as I love the A380, I never expected to be calling it better looking.

Re: LH introduces revised livery

I really don't get all of the guessing about why this colour scheme and why these planes. It's dead simple: money. First, they've reduced their colour scheme from 4 to 2 colours. Money saved, just as AC did and just as a plethora of others have. I expect someone crunched the numbers on a two-colour ...

Re: Is Winter demand stronger between Paris and Montreal than between London and Toronto ?

That is somewhat true, certainly for YUL, but YYZ is a bit of a different story. Toronto to London is flown ~12x daily, split about evenly between LHR and other airports. Toronto is BA’s only Canadian destination flown more then daily - 2x daily from LHR and 3x weekly from LGW in the summer. Now, c...

Re: Is Winter demand stronger between Paris and Montreal than between London and Toronto ?

These numbers are very interesting for another reason, why does Air Canada dominate BA from Canada to the UK ? From the USA to UK BA and Virgin Atlantic dominate the US3 from most cities save where a US3 has a strong hub. AA dominates DFW to LHR but not LAX or JFK to LHR. Delta is King in Atlanta w...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines going nonstop to Toronto

Toronto is apparently widely regarded as the most multicultural city in the world (200 ethnicities, 140 spoken languages) so, based on that, connecting it directly to a major hub any...

Re: Is Winter demand stronger between Paris and Montreal than between London and Toronto ?

In addition to that, the fact that AC can run a daytime flight between YYZ and LHR while they (apparently, much to my chagrin) can't do the same between YUL and CDG says to me that demand (especially for business travel) is higher between Toronto and London.

Re: Asiana - Big hole in their fleet?

I don’t see a big deal here, many airlines used to go from 763 to 744. Yes, but that was out of necessity more than anything. I think you're talking more about back in the days when they all had to have 744 fleets just to cross the Pacific or flight any longer distances. I don't think it's been tha...

Re: Qantas and B747-8

The whole issue with this thread is that the 747-8i just doesn't make sense for anybody. I'm still at a loss as to why LH, CA, and KE bought them (aside from great prices and some fleet commonality, and perhaps the ability to sell tickets at a slight premium for the upper deck). If you want somethin...

Re: Insane Jetstream on the North Atlantic

It may be fast but it's not fun to be in. I'm not sure if the jetstream is to blame for this, but my flight on TK36 YUL-IST (while landing over an hour early) was constantly fairly bumpy (verging on quite bumpy) from just past Newfoundland to well over Western Europe. Hours of bumps. Hours.

Re: Asiana - Big hole in their fleet?

Interesting points...I wasn't aware their 200ERs were so young. I think I assumed because the one I was one was positively ancient. They seem to swap between ERs and LRs on that route...but maybe the info I see on that is wrong. Regarding perception, that's an interesting point. I believe (a while a...

Asiana - Big hole in their fleet?

While connecting through JFK the other day, I was reminded that Asiana (an airline I love) has what strikes me as an odd fleet selection. At JFK I spied one of their (now, fairly aged) 777-200s and, since I'm flying out of JFK on an OZ A380 in July I remembered that Asiana swaps their A380s around e...

Fascinating and thorough responses all, thank you so much!

Well, that's stating the obvious, yes. It doesn't explain what seems like a big miss for the network. Especially since neither ORD nor IAD are being fed by superjumbos.

Newby Question: Why no regional/transcon Star Alliance service for JFK?

Hello all, my first thread. I searched for this, but I didn't find anything. So, I understand that United decided to vacate JFK at some point entirely and focus on EWR as their NY hub. As a result, or potentially just because it suits them better (or both), Air Canada only flies to LGA and EWR. Whic...

Re: Piedmont Airlines Sets the Timetable to End All Dash 8 Service

The props aversion is largely a US thing. In Canada alone, there are over 100 Dash 8s/Q400s in operation. A lot of that is related to Billy Bishop, I'd say. The Canadian Gov'ts refusal to certify the extension of the runways there (to help ensure AC doesn't get any *actual* competition) is what is ...
