awfully silly to say this is "in AA's DNA" when this is something certainly not exclusive to them. Saying that something is 'in their DNA" (which it is...they've proven it) doesn't mean other carriers don't also start and end routes. I'm just saying that AA has played fast and loose ...Jump to post
I've been having problems with the forums. The long-standing account I had used for YEARS got locked and/or corrupted and I had to create a whole new one. But I cannot put my photo in my profile without the dreaded 'YOU HAVE BEEN BLOCKED' smacking me in the face when I try (discussed elsewhere here ...Jump to post

Since everyone KNOWS this is a 'ploy' to get Boeing to budge on prices, WHY would Boeing even bother 'budging?'Jump to post
Doesn’t the inter-line agreement between Norwegian and JetBlue answer this question? Gatwick.Jump to post

I didn’t know KE was going daily out of BOS. I heard they were going to add an extra day, but ‘daily’ seemed off into the future. Also, unfortunate seeing Alaska cut BOS-SEA by a third. The effects of competition I guess.Jump to post
Thanks all, so it sounds as though I could save a bit of time doing this trip via HND versus NRT, just not that much. Anyway, I wonder what the likelihood is of Boston switching to HND. Our flights were full, so obviously people still want to use NRT as far as BOS is concerned. The Shinkansen trains...Jump to post
I just took JAL 7 Friday the 27th and came home on 8 last night. Both flights filled to the brim. I wonder whether a 77W would be too much? In any event, I’ve also wondered about the wisdom of parking that 787-9 in Boston for what amounts so almost 20 hours. On the plus side, the outbound 7 is nearl...Jump to post
As an aside, we were on JA864J going over last Friday and the schedule showed the same plane would be used coming home yesterday after (again) coming in from Boston. But for some reason that plane ended up going to Sydney I think. We ended up on 865 yesterday, which had just come into NRT from FRA.Jump to post
Last Friday I flew from Boston aboard JA864J. I notice that JAL has something like 18 of these. But as near as I can tell, only 861-868 fly to places like DFW and BOS. How are all the other 787-9s in their fleet different from these eight? I fly back to BOS on Sunday, so I’ll see which one of them I...Jump to post
Amid all the hoopla about AA, I noticed that SAS made a slew of international long-haul changes and none involved Boston. That’s curious since I’ve inferred from comments that the flight doesn’t do that well. But I guess it does well enough to keep everything as-is for next year. Also, I looked to s...Jump to post
What’s the LAX flight being renumbered to in losing 108/109?Jump to post
The BOS capacity dump continues! It never ceases to amaze me how much carriers are willing to dump in BOS despite yields being trash. Is this simply a case of everyone ganging up on B6 to put them out of business? Possibly. I suspect AA sees this as a win-win. They can jab at DL and kick B6 at the ...Jump to post
I think all this ‘capacity’ at BOS is testimony to the area’s balanced strength as a market, and its longevity. Med/Bio, high tech, education all coalesce into a demographically strong region whose people no longer want to be ‘told’ they have to connect at JFK to go somewhere. BOS will never have gl...Jump to post
Can someone elaborate on the AA press release statement that says the BOS-LHR flight will be aboard a ‘state-of-the-art’ 777-200? Obviously the planes are well over a decade old, so is this particular frame going to be ‘different’ from all the other 772s they’ve got?Jump to post

I just took JAL 7 from Boston to Narita Friday. It was a very full flight but I can’t say 100% full because I couldn’t see loads up front. Anyway, my business destination was Kyoto, where I am now. That meant the Narita Express into the city, connecting to the bullet train to Kyoto. We landed at Nar...Jump to post
While waiting to board JL 7 on Friday at E10, I surveyed the rather congested landscape ‘back there’ and wondered how things would look two to three years down the road. Where would UPS go? Also, I watched as the BA A380 deftly maneuvered itself between our 789 and all those biz jets. What a tight s...Jump to post

I know there are reasons for this (availability of suitable planes chief among them, plus governmental approvals & slots), but I do wish DL's international aspirations from Boston included flights to some Asian cities.Jump to post
So the CEO actually DID come just to announce two new routesJump to post
Even if unlikely, DL having its own international clearance is the kind of one-upsmanship B6 can’t match.Jump to post
Capital & infrastructure plans will draw a CEO out to a station; announcement of two new routes (by itself) won’t.Jump to post
