We did have some KE B748's in the past. But not regular. That is nice to see them every day :)


I'm excited to see these at T5 as well...especially after losing the KL 747. It's definitely going to be a treat to see another baby blue Queen of the Skies, let a lone one of the other few 748i! :bigthumbsup:

KE is good in my book for bringing the 748 but A380 would have been more impressive. :). I still hope UA Jumps on ORD-ICN, i think it would be a good 787 route when they come in spring.

Here's the latest triple seven in scheduled service to O'Hare. Dubbed "Blue Jay", she is scheduled to arrive today at about 9:00hrs

This brand-new 77F has been flying NRT<>ORD with an occasional flight from Tokyo to PVG thrown in.

This is surprising. Obviously, good for us for new service, but I just wonder if this might be a bit of excess capacity on these routes.

Side note, but is ANA Cargo a separate entity than NCA (Nippon Cargo Airlines)?
No not that TSA.

yes, different entities:

All Nippon Airways Co., Ltd. (ANA) ...headquarters are located in Shiodome City Center in the Shiodome area of Minato ward of Tokyo. Allex Cargo (ANA Cargo), the freighter division [are] operated by Air Japan.

Nippon Cargo Airlines Company, Limited, or NCA, is a cargo airline with its head office on the property of Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba Prefecture, outside Tokyo.

ANA Cargo uses terminal where WGN and CPA load/unload (South Central cargo ramp) while NCA has its own gates at Southeast Cargo Ramp (across GEC gates). Previously ANA Cargo was flying for Japan Cargo to ORD (visited few times in the past).

ANA cargo currently parks at South Central Cargo also where WGN parks it’s 747s. It would be by the United cargo building on the south side of the airport.

United Cargo :checkmark:
It used to be designated for ANA because during the hurricane that went over Japan in October I saw two pax ANA planes parked there. It was way before ANA Cargo starts regular service to ORD.

That's true, there are definitely headwinds...even the casual observer can see that.

That being said, ORD still seeing positive Y-O-Y numbers, though the rate of growth looks to be a bit slower than last year.

New Aug and Sep data just released. MDW had a nice little Sep bounce for international pax, taking some of the sting out of the YTD #.

A couple of ORD schedule revisions in today's Airlineroute update:

Starting 5 March United is adding ORD-MCO once daily service with 772.
https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... e-20191114

Effective 22 April, Austrian will be operating 777-200ER daily on its VIE<>ORD route instead of a 767/777 mix.

I have a photo that I took in 2000 of a DC-10 landing on one of the 18s at MCO.
Back in my ERAU days I was a regular on the 767-300 that ran MCO-ORD.
The most obvious proof for intelligent life in the universe is that they haven't tried to contact us.

Flew on that 10 a few times ORD to MCO. Was an awesome flight. There was one that left ORD around 8:30AM and turned at MCO for a 1245PM Departure back to ORD. This was a mainstay for years. May have even went to the 767 after the DC-10's were retired.

Boy, beats me. Seems O'Hare is in a 8K+ ultra long haul route phase so I don't find the proposal outlandish.

There is currently a thread on this being discussed. SQ flew to ORD back around 2000 or so but discontinued it after the SARS breakout. They used a 777-200 thru AMS 3 times a week I think.
The current discussion involves SQ having extra 359ULH aircraft coming and where they will send them. ORD, IAD, YVR, YYZ, even MIA and IAH nonstop along with additional JFK flying is being considered apparently.

NZ and QF started about 9 months out with certain talks. If this is for W20 then SQ better get the ball started sooner than later.

If we look at times for NZ and QF (1700/1640 arrival) (2000/2140 departure) SQ would want to arrive in the late afternoon/early evening and depart mid to late evening.

EVA Air is going daily on their 773 TPE-ORD flight starting in May '20

https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... e-20191119

Last flew the route daily in 2017. A small but encouraging sign of growth in trans-pacific flights out of O'Hare.

Yes, been reading that. Seems to me that Chicago is the likely choice, and many on there agree, but none of us actually know what Singapore Airlines is considering of course. We'll just have to wait and see.

Not really to surprising. CBS 2 is running a story about lax perimeter security at ORD. The focus is on contracted security at the construction entrance but I've not found CDA guards to be much better at the regular posts.

...on the subject of 8,000+ mile flights out of O'Hare...

Maps generated by the Great Circle Mapper (http://www.gcmap.com) - copyright © Karl L. Swartz.

What got me going on Manila is the recent thread on the theory of United starting SFO-MNL:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1435343

Another route, MNL-ORD has been in the rumor mill for quite a while, most recently here at posts 839-841, p 17, with one suggesting nonstop MNL-ORD and another suggesting a MNL-YVR-ORD route:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1411777&start=800

Should United's nonstop from SFO route actually come to fruition, I wonder if PAL would want to leap-frog United and inaugurate ORD-MNL?

A question, and my apologies if this has been discussed upthread and I am resurrecting the dead:

On a UA flight out of C Concourse this morning, I notice that some of the gates/waiting areas were closed for renovations for a "new experience." The sign had a picture of a 787 Dreamliner on it. Is United making modifications to Charlie Concourse in preparation of the 787 base?

I think it was mentioned that United is looking to revamp some of the gate areas. I haven't been through C in a few weeks and last time I was there, didn't notice anything. Do you remember which gates specifically?

I'm hoping it's just some fresh seating and carpets. I definitely hope they DO NOT make it look IAH - I can't stand all those hightop/bar-style counter height seating area with the stools and tablets... ugh :banghead: Just want some "plain old" [new] chairs, please.

If they can keep it similar to what AA did, I'd be very happy.

Last time through I saw the area emcm mentioned. As I remember, it was just south (to the lower-numbered side) of the Polaris Club in C. Perhaps UA is remodeling a gate area to accommodate the 787's coming to O'Hare?

It was the C10 area, what should have been gates C12 and C14. Should be noted no maps, either in the terminal or on google, showed those gates;

C10 was split into C10 and C12. ANA now departs either B16 or B17.

So do you think this remodel is due to the UA 787 arrival at O'Hare?

Yeah, heard about it. It was in all news that day.

"...SAS is rolling out its first A-350 from Chicago to Copenhagen, which the carrier has long maintained is one of its most popular routes. The new plane will also sport a livery the Scandinavian carrier unveiled earlier this fall."

It's to be used for training, you'll still see the A340.


Ah, I see... Perhaps we'll see them regularly on the route after they acquire more.


>Hey jcwr - you have any idea of what planned at the C-gates gate remodel referred to above?

I took a bunch of pictures departing ORD on thanksgiving morning. Got nearly the entire field plus downtown in several shots. Not sure how to post them here though.

JAL has released its O'Hare-Haneda schedule, effective March 29 2020, which will operate with 777-300ER's.


They also announced that they plan on resuming ORD-NRT on 15 Feb, 2021 with the 787-9.


https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... e-20191201

When its all said and done, wonder if there will be any flights from O'Hare to Tokyo on its Oneworld partner American?

Glad to see they’re upguaging to the 787-9 for the route but I wonder why the nearly year long hiatus.

I saw on CH Aviation news from a couple of weeks ago that Egyptair was planning a nonstop CAI-ORD all cargo nonstop route for next year but have decided against starting that route because of the better than expected cargo carrying capacity of their new 787-9 service to IAD. I’m sorry but I couldn’t paste the article.
While I’m disappointed in not being able to see their Egyptair Cargo plane flying here I think the encouraging news is this may just mean they’re seriously looking at pax service to ORD.
1. The article states that they were already planning a cargo route but decided against it because of the results from their new service to IAD. Just my take but I don’t think this means their going to use JFK and IAD only to fly cargo thru to the rest of the US. They obviously were looking at Chicago’s logistics and geography for cargo.
2. Egyptair publically mentioned how they would like to expand service to the US with ORD being one of the cities they were looking at.
I realize that this is pure conjecture but it seems to make sense, at least n my humble opinion.

Perhaps the delay is due to the delivery schedule of their -9's?
Still wonder whether American will announce an ORD-NRT route for next summer (although Tokyo flights aren't particularly seasonal, I know).
Guess I'm a bit surprised they're letting JAL do all the lifting on this route

Fantastic news! I'm glad the A340 will still be a regular visitor, and now we'll see the entire SAS widebody fleet here. :bigthumbsup:
