Re: Delta to serve Mumbai nonstop in 2019

How feasible TECHNICALLY is a SFO - BLR flight? Could a 777W, 777LR, 787, or A350 do it in BOTH directions without a weight penalty? Would the route be the longest in the world?

Re: WOW Closes All U.S. Stations Except: BOS/BWI/DTW/EWR

It would be terrific if JetBlue flies to Iceland. It is a 5 - 6 hour flight to KEF from JFK, their hub. I hope they do!

Re: Toronto Aviation Thread - 2019

Does anyone know how Emirates and Etihad are doing on their flights since they were allowed to increase their capacity to YYZ? What are the loads?

Re: LOT Polish international growth

LOT is foolish enough to fly to New Delhi (DEL) without offering a convenient short connection on the India - USA routes in BOTH directions (they only do so in one direction). India - USA via Poland route will comprise the bulk of their traffic from DEL and they offer a terribly long connection in o...

Re: Delta to serve Mumbai nonstop in 2019

>>>>>>Try pricing UA’s EWR-BOM flight (originating in the US) and no Saturday night stay (so like most business trips)

I understand that UA flies EWR-BOM and EWR-DEL, and is starting SFO-DEL. Shouldn't it also consider SFO-BOM, which may be more profitable than even EWR-BOM?

Re: Jet Airways: reports cash running out

>>>Who will fund 9W for next six months?? For sure, the Government will not let Jet to collapse before the elections. In the end, all the parties will do what they do best -- get into bed with each other. So, don't be surprised if that bed holds Naresh Goyal, politicians, the Government, Etihad, the...

Re: WOW Closes All U.S. Stations Except: BOS/BWI/DTW/EWR

With so many bases in the US closed, by what % will Iceland's tourism traffic decrease?

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - 2019

Does anyone know why just one European carrier (British Airways) offer flights to Hyderabad when the City is an IT hub and is home to numerous foreign companies such as Amazon. Don't the foreign carriers want to win over corporate travel contracts? When can we expect Lufthansa, KLM, and Air France t...

Re: Jet Airways: reports cash running out

>>Does Etihad put more in the pot or fold? This is an extremely difficult choice for Etihad. They invested $$$$$$ in acquiring the initial 24% stake in Jet Airways plus additional $$$$$ for the 49% take in Jet's Frequent Flyer business. If they let Jet collapse now, they will lose that investment en...

Re: Jet Airways: reports cash running out

Some mentioned that the value of Jet Airways lies primarily in the slots that it has at Mumbai and New Delhi airports and the 16 aircraft that it owns. My questions are: 1) How many pairs of slots does it have at Mumbai and New Delhi and what % do these represent of the total slots at those airports...

Re: Jet Airways: reports cash running out

The latest news is that Etihad proposes increasing its stake to 49% via a "rights issue" to existing shareholders at about $160 a share. This method of issuing shares by Jet helps skirt the SEBI's methodology of determining the share price (which would otherwise have been higher). What is ...
