Re: Updated: Qantas saying it is almost ready to select Project Sunrise aircraft

Is it a possibility that QF could start SYD-IAD/BOS in addition to JFK nonstop?

Re: Updated: UA reinstating BOM and DEL service by September 6th, 2019

It was very important for UA to restart these routes before DL started JFK-BOM.

Re: MH17 - 5 years ago

MH seems very accident prone, with this and the disappearance.

Re: Aeromexico reports loss; cancels PVG, suspends 5 other international routes

Until Mexico City gets a new Airport, it will be hard for AeroMexico to profitably operate.

Good move by AA, capturing this high yield traffic in the low season.

Re: Boeing 797 Thread - 2019

I think that there is no need for the 797. The 787 covers the MoM just fine. Boeing would do better to dedicate all their resources to the MAX.

I think WN was sort of in a bind here. No good options.

It is obvious that this is an empty threat to get Zurich Airport not to follow through.

History of UA at JFK

Obviously, UA does not serve JFK anymore, but I know they once had quite a sizable operation. What did it look like? I know LHR, NRT, and HKG were served at one point.

History of AA intercontinental flying at ORD

What intercontinental routes has AA operated in the past? I would appreciate a complete list including equipment type. I am curious how they got down to just LHR as a year-round, daily route.

Potential new EK US routes?

Since expanding in Florida a few years ago, EK has not added any new US routes. What are some potential adds?

Some likely candidates, in my opinion:
ATL
PHL
2nd daily BOS/IAD
AUS?
PDX?
DTW?

UA at FRA

Frankfurt is the main Star hub in Western Europe, yet United has just 9 flights per day there, which pales compared to AA at LHR (21) or DL at AMS (21). Why? Is it because Delta and AA have a stronger relationship with there JV partners? Or is there some other reason?

Delta’s Hubs

Delta is consistently the most profitable of the US3 despite having hubs in much smaller cities. Why? Of the 8 largest metro areas in the US, AA has hubs at 7 (NYC, LAX, ORD, DFW, DCA, PHL, and MIA) while UA has five (EWR, LAX, ORD, IAH, and IAD). However, DL has hubs in just NYC and LAX.

There is no way a hypothetical Disney Airlines will survive. MCO is too competitive of a market.

Re: UPDATED: AA drops ORD-PEK/PVG, reduces NRT

Yes, if DL needs more Midwest-China capacity, a new MSP flight makes more sense than double daily DTW. Don’t forget, going from 744s to A359s was a big drop in capacity.
