Royal Jordanian Plans LAX, MIA Relaunches

Mon Nov 25, 2013 9:25 pm

Royal Jordanian has filed with Austrian air authorities to begin service between Amman and both Miami and Los Angeles via Vienna with a targeted start in mid-2014.

http://www.ch-aviation.ch/portal/new...nian-eyes-vienna-us-traffic-rights

This would be a return to both cities for Royal Jordanian, which flew to Miami and Los Angeles in the early 1990's. Miami was served via Vienna then, too.

Does RJ have traffic rights already from Austria or did they have them previously ? Why would Austria all of a sudden give traffic rights to RJ ?

Would be nice it happened but I don't it's very likely.

Considering the touch and go financial state of the carrier and its continued reduction of long-haul flying in favor of growing regional links, I don't see a such longhaul ventures coming to fruition.

Asking for an update to bilateral and actually using such rights are two things.

Btw - what Jordan is asking for specifically is 3x weekly beyond rights to MIA or LAX. That would be in addition to their already 7 weekly existing and unused JFK authority.

can they fill a widebody AMM-VIE? or would the plane be based in VIE and only do the VIE-USA legs?

They currently hold Austria-U.S. traffic rights, but now to LA/Miami.

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 2):

True, but both routes have been rumored for a while now since RJ's entry into OW. Precarious state or not, RJ still has to look at how to maximize it's networks. But I do agree that both these routes seem odd in routing them via Vienna instead of just non-stop.

On one hand neither LA nor Miami seem like the most logical next expansion point for RJ long-haul.

On the other hand, expanding to OW hubs like MIA and LAX could be a safer bet than adding other cities.

While before my time in Houston however I believe that RJ (ALIA back then) had a AMM/VIEJFK/IAH service back in the late 70s. While it would be nice to see a return, I suspect that IAH-Middle East is likely at tapped with EK, QR and TK at this point.

Hmm...well if this actually comes to fruition:

1) MIA-AMM will be full of TLV bound traffic. Perhaps that, plus OneWorld connections will be enough to carry it through this time. Those are the only reasons this might work.

2) LAX-AMM will be hard to make a penny off of. With TLV served plus EK and EY service, I cant see how it will work.

he meant AUH-LAX with EY, and DOH-MIA with QR, both of which will launch next June.

As for RJ,

Both AMM-LAX and AMM-MIA are doable non stop with the A342. The A332 doesn't have the legs for LAX, but a non stop to MIA is doable.

The only reason why i see them operating via VIE is because they want to tap into the VIE-LAX and VIE-MIA markets, both of which are not served at the moment.

Not saying it will happen, but it might. After all, they do have 11 787s on order. They will need to send these birds somewhere besides HKG, JFK, YUL, DTW, ORD, BKK and KUL, considering that a lot of these routes (if not all) arent daily.

If an airline drops a route because the cost outweighs the revenue side of the operation it would only make sense that they would return if they can lower the cost such as operating a much more efficient airplane. That's my theory at least

A nonstop service by RJ will take away connecting traffic on OS and LH via MUC/FRA/ORD/IAD etc so why on earth would OS want to give traffic away to another airline and alliance ?

I'm not so sure how much clout OS/LH has with Austria but I still doubt that this would happen via VIE.

We will see.

I agree in theory, but in practice these carriers haven't kicked each other out of small markets yet, and MIA probably won't be any different. I also don't agree that RJ in any way competes with these. If RJ were to return, it's probably going to rely on traffic to/from just three cities - Vienna, Tel Aviv and Amman, and EK/QR don't compete with that. RJ, like TK, I see as just another European carrier in the mix. Plus, EK and QR are in fact propped up.

Not that I think that flying via VIE is a good idea. It's not, but VIE is a OW hub. One of the smaller ones, but a hub nonetheless.

If RJ wants to take a serious attempt at either Miami or Los Angeles, it should fly three 787s a week non-stop to Amman. It might work.

NIKI's market share at VIE is roughly 8.6%. Combined with airberlin, the share is 15.8%. OS is still over three times larger.

Based on that data alone, Lufthansa has roughly the same amount of share at Zurich, which is VIE's most comparable airport. Does LH consider ZRH a hub?

So hub is based purely on market share? I thought it was based on whether or not an airline uses the facility as a primary means of transiting passengers between two flights.

And ZRH is absolutely a hub for Lufthansa Group - I'm sure plenty of LH passengers are transiting to LX long-haul via ZRH.

EasyJet offers more frequencies and ASMs out of AMS than NIKI does at VIE.

I think most of us can agree that RJ will start MIA first UNLESS RJ has the right aircraft with the right legs to do LAX before MIA or maybe they can start both the same time.
I really wished we had more info..

RJ's 787 deliveries doesn't start until late 2014 to early 2015 if I'm not mistaken.

It would be awesome to get RJ from AMM and VIE at LAX. However, I see it more realistic to restart the service to MIA. RJ would have tough competition at LAX with EK,EY, LY and connections to VIE from like LHR and FRA. If my memory serves, wasn't OZ looking to jump into LAX?
