Thanks for the reports. Wish I could have been there too.
Best of luck to all former VX employees. I am sure AS will take well care of everyone and welcome them to the family.
Any reports from those on board? How was the flight?Jump to post
Southwest is probably the last major carrier that have flights that are truly operated as direct through flights with short 30min stops during which you stay onboard.Jump to post

Well as mentioned above apparently AS flies SJO-SJC.
In the U.S. the top 2 must be LHR-NYC (JFK/EWR) followed by LHR-LAX. In terms of volume yes... but in terms of proportion, I would argue otherwise. The sub-daily seasonal holiday routes would have the highest proportion of O&D. But I dont see the value of discussing proportion of OD. Otherwise ...Jump to post
I see that on Saturday 21 April, Air Belgium will operate 2 "dress rehearsal" flights, each a 3-hour trip around Europe, departing from and returning to CRL. Y-class fare is €25! Free parking at CRL included! Business is only €50! All ticket revenues will be donated to charities https://w...Jump to post
ONT is about 5 miles away from the LA County line so not that much of a stretch to be called an "LA" airport. People have to realize that there is much more to LA than the westside, especially when talking about the Asian communities. As stated many times, ONT is much more convenient to t...Jump to post
Yeah, really surprised they don’t have it at least listed as Los Angeles/Ontario. Quite unusual to put in the local town the airport is located jn without using the name of the city they are serving which really is the greater Los Angeles area.Jump to post
Don't worry, EK will remain the Aviation boggyman until TK outgrows them. Cest la vie.
Connections fill the rest of the plane with higher yields, than trying to chase after price sensitive O/D by matching EWR/JFK fares. ...based on what? How would you have any idea what the relative yield is for either ex that hub? Why would AA cut JFK flights and add to PHL if they could make more m...Jump to post

I am booked on this route in June flying ARN-LHR-YHZ-YYZ-LAX (fun routing!). When I booked the ticket it was scheduled as a 767, so a bit disappointed to see it downgraded to a 737. While I have flown TATL on NBs before (EWR-ARN/757 and CPH-BOS/737), I still prefer WBs as you have more room to move ...Jump to post

Find it kind of funny that QF9 will fly right over DXB!Jump to post
17 minutes in and shows another 17h 38min remaining to LHR. That is one long flight!Jump to post
You can absolutely go ahead and book with FI. There is no way that they will drop the route in the middle of high season, and as evident from the fare you are paying it seems that FI will do well in CLE this summer.
Book it before the price creeps up!
Norwegian Air Shuttle (DY) for the 787 flights. Crew bases are FLL, JFK, LGW, BCN, FCO and BKK. Norwegian Air International (D8) operates the 737 Max flights from Europe to the east coast.

Unless you are a frequent flyer don't overthink it. Redeeming miles/points for flights has become harder the past few years with devaluation and fuller planes with paying pax.

I think you've answered your own question. Essentially SK's widebody fleet history is 747 > DC10 > 763 > A330/A340. The 787 might be a good fit for them when they next look at their widebody requirements. They have the A350 on order as their future long haul fleet. Mind you, they are switching to a...Jump to post
With it alredy being March, the worst of TATL low season is already over. They will probably be fine up to and including this summer season. However, whether they can continue like this next winter season (OCT-MAR) is anyone’s guess. Something must change as they have burned a lot of cash this winter.Jump to post
While it is great for OD pax with mostly short distances from curb to gate, the main problem with the airport is the ever increasing congestion in the alleys and lack of gates. For instance yesterday I flew SJC-LAX on WN and it took us 30 minuets from landing till we were at the gate. A few days bef...Jump to post

Noticed on FR24 that there are currently many flights (EK/QR/EY/BA/LH/KL) between the Middle East and Europe that fly over Iraq. I thought that airlines still avoided overflying Iraq. What changes have been implemented for airlines to now deem it safe to fly in Iraqi airspace?Jump to post

When all is said and done, the only Norwegian speed record anybody is going to remember is how quickly it shuts down. They've been around since 1993 ... 25 years ...

Pennies count. I’m surprised they aren’t thinking more tactically about fuel savings. Tailwinds are God’s gift to the airlines.
