Any thoughts on whether any trans-Pacific routes are possible from LAX using 763?
|Quoting SESGDL (Reply 26):|
DL will begin using 763ERs from LAX-Asia as early as 2008, most likely 2009.
What will be the range of DL
's 763ERs once ready for international use?
have used 767s on transpac. OZ
used 763ER and AC
Boeing says the max range of a 763ER is 6105nm (FRA
). Is that empty or in actual real life conditions?
If we go by these numbers...
Possible destinations from ATL
Possible destinations from JFK
Possible destinations from CVG
Possible destinations from LAX
Possible destinations from SLC
So All of Europe, parts of Africa, Middle East, East Asia, and South America. If they were to build up a stop at HNL
, then more of Asia is accessible.
But I would venture to say that Japan and Korea will be targets from LAX
. More routes from JFK
to Easter Europe. But, it seems that Delta wants to go where they can make a mark. So they will expand in Africa and create connections via JFK
to the rest of the world.
Personally I would like to see LAX
back but only if it can connect LAX
in a timely manner with little pain for getting around LAX
