I had read about that flight in another thread. Here's N708DN captured at Narita:

Feels like a step back in time with tag flights popping up everywhere.
(Spirit and jetBlue are also in the tag game from ORD - see posts 432 & 433 on p.9 of this thread).

Now United is scheduling from O'Hare a number of triangular routings in the Midwest and South.
These are all due to requirements for obtaining funding from the CARES Act which requires at least 5X/week flights to each city, so during this time of light loads it makes sense to combine some station's flights into one-stops.

Everyday there is something that needs attention. We have today AFR B77W coming from CDG around 2pm. AFR brought B77W yesterday around 9pm as well. Looks like they operating ORD with B77W along with B77F...

The 77W's are being used as freighters I assume?
Do they operate out of T-5 or a cargo ramp?

FR24 seems to indicate SkyTeam cargo flights out of the Southeast Cargo ramp. That's where the DL777 has been stationed recently. Pretty sure that's where I saw AF depart. Not sure about those KLM78X's though.

On another note, has anyone else noted DL is flying A220s into ORD now? I wonder if this will be permanent moving forward in place of the 717. I'd love to be able to hop on one of these between LGA-ORD in the future.

On a more positive note in all of this, the slowdown appears to have not negatively affected the construction at MDW.
https://www.mdwmod.com/progress/pages/default.aspx
The south portion of the bridge looks to be nearly done and the center which they only started on after tearing the old bridge out in November seems to be clipping along fairly quickly. If anything, they might wind up ahead of schedule because of it, especially with the concessions area which was a hot mess when I went through in February. They usually post their monthly progress updates the first week or so of the month so I'm interested to see what the may one will bring.

Thanks for the mention, also it is worded weird in the article but I think for Eau Claire, Houghton, and Duluth it will route first to Houghton then to Eau Claire OR Duluth. I don’t think they will be going to all three on the same routing.

I agree - it wasn't clear!
I was thinking ORD-EAU-DLH-ORD or ORD-CMX-DLH-ORD (or reverse)
and you're saying ORD-CMX-DLH-ORD or ORD-CMX-EAU-ORD (or reverse).

I was going with DLH being the most frequented due to what I assume is the larger station of the three, but I definitely could be wrong.

As of April 26 EI is flying only 11 routes in total, one of which is Dublin-O'Hare. However, (and this could probably be said for every airline out there)
"as the airline’s schedule listing in the GDS and OAG continues to display discrepancies for actual available flight booking, the following operation is based on inventory listing": ORD-DUB 7X/week

Any first-hand observations on the field? Are you seeing a daily Aer Lingus operation?

Just wanted to jump in here and mention that the frequency requirements for qualifying for the CARES Act mentioned above in bold may not be accurate; I've seen in other threads different rules cited, so take the above with a grain of salt.

The complete quote on the subject from the above link was: "It is unclear how often each flight will operate, but for the airline to be eligible for CARES Act funding United is required to operate at least five flights a week to each city."

United has some great hub locations for operating 2-stoppers between many UAX markets. No backtracking like a triangle routing and the legs could be long enough to actually sell a few tickets on the intermediate segments. I haven't mastered posting an image so I'll just be primitive and place a link.

"City officials say O’Hare’s massive $8.5 billion expansion project is moving ahead. But bleak outlook for air travel could force it to scale back."

https://www.chicagotribune.com/coronavi ... story.html

New article from the Trib sheds some light on O'hare 21, and in particular the OGT. I fully understand what a precarious situation the airline industry in in today (not to mention city finances). But it feels to me like its way too soon to be making the type of long-term prognostications about the demise or scope of air travel in 2028 or beyond. This could be nothing more than a memory by then, with little material impact on demand.

I'm old enough to remember the talking heads saying people would never fly again after 9/11... people would never live/work/build a landmark skyscraper again...no one would ever move to Manhattan again.... etc etc.

Airline finances aside, this should continue to move forward IMO. Though I'm fine if needs to be delayed for a year or two...seems like they were way too aggressive on a 2028 timetable anyway.

On a side note: the more I think about the departures hall being elevated above street-level, the more the idea frustrates me. I hope that's one change Gang makes: bring departures back down to curbside level.

Well if any country has its act together vs. CV, it's arguably Taiwan. Hope everything goes as planned in November. I really enjoyed Taipei the one time I was there a few years ago. Are you staying only there or going beyond?

...and by the way, photographers, there are no EVA triple sevens in the ORD A-net database - that's why I have to use an EVA 777 in TPE for illustration. I know its a difficult shot, operating so late at O'Hare and all, but someone need to adjust for low light! :old:

They need to continue with the project regardless, traffic will be rebounding by the time construction starts. Plus, it doesn’t change the fact the terminal core is still aging and needs to be replaced.

CDA released Jan and Feb stats.

It's quite impressive, and a bit surprising, how strong they were for domestic travel. Obviously international suffered.

Y-O-Y: ORD domestic was up 6.43% and MDW was up almost 3%. Domestic freight very strong at both as well, over 10% gains.

National landed on 27L which not suprised me.Trying to track Comlux, but it does not show up in any tracking software so will hang around ORD before 7pm.

On the subject of United at O'Hare...
Signs are pointing to UA triple sevens becoming a less common commodity on the field, as reported by LAXintl in the United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020:

LAXintl wrote:
United put out a pilot displacement bid with pretty significant moves.

787 - LAX base closed, with additional displacements in DCA, DEN, EWR, IAH, ORD and SFO
777 - DCA, IAH and ORD bases closed. Fleet focused on EWR & SFO.
757/767 - DCA, DEN, LAX and SFO bases closed. Fleet focused on EWR, IAH and ORD


...but I can live with 787's! :crossfingers:

That was day before yesterday, right?
It turns out that our a.net fellow photographer Sam Chui was onboard that National B752 that arrived after 1pm at ORD! Welcome in Chicago, Sam!

Looks like Comlux is heading ORD, but it will be here before midnight. It's just reach Japan.I am wondering for how long Comlux will stay at ORD?
Also we have today at ORD two EK Expo2000 Opportunity (orange) c/s - A6-ECU and A6-EQO. One already on the ground, second will land about 12:30.

Noticed an Air New Zealand aircraft visiting O'Hare this evening - a 787-9 ZK-NZR - flying AKL-LAX-ORD and returning.

Here she is still in Everett, October of last year ^

Good to see (on FR24) an NZ a/c on the field again... almost got used to seeing them regularly there for awhile. Hope to see KiIwi and Qantas return with pax.

"As India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation announced extended scheduled service suspension until 17MAY20, the following preliminary schedule is effective 18MAY20 – 31MAY20, as of 03MAY20 OAG schedules:"

ORD-DEL 7X/week 77W



Frankly, doesn't seem realistic, but hoping for the best. Stay tuned.

Hi, when I awoke this am I saw a DE (Condor) 76 arriving on FR24. I think it was due in around 9:30? Does anyone have any info on this? It doesn’t appear to be on the departures page for later today.

It has a quick stop at YEG and arrived to ORD at 2am. Departed at 1pm to Fort Myers.

A Condor flight DE994 visited us today morning as Planeboy17 said. They had a miscommunication with tower after arrival (9:50a) and used active runway as a taxiway. Just departed to FRA as DE995. A/c D-ABUA. Seems like we might have them back in next few days.

Are both frequencies cargo-only?
No not that TSA.
