Wow, ARN has lost quite a few long haul routes now. DY dropping OAK, LAS, and LAX. Now SAS dropping HKG from ARN. Has taken a few years to build up all of these routes, and all have been dropped the last few weeks. Wonder what will happen with the extra A330 available now. HKG was routed as ARN-HKG-...Jump to post
Looks like DY will stop flying ARN-LAX from November. Dont know if it is only a seasonal cut, but still a bit sad to see them go from the route. Quite a few long haul cuts for this upcoming winter season. Related to this; I notice it hasn’t yet been noted in this thread that DY is starting 2x weekl...Jump to post
I wouldnt rule out LAX as your connection point. Here is why: 1. You are traveling year round up to twice a month. With LAX having year round good weather, you avoid the risk of IRROPS during the winter months compared to the other hubs. 2. In case of IRROPS you dont risk of getting stranded mid way...Jump to post
While SFO has a good range of destinations in Europe, it still is the 2nd choice for many EU carriers when they want to serve the West Coast. Most telling is that both LO and OS fly to LAX instead of SFO despite the large Star hub up the road. Furthermore, many of the destinations served out of SFO...Jump to post

Must be some remote destination in Alaska or Hawaii. For instance, take Atqasuk, AK to Hana, HI you have to fly ATK-AIN-BRW-SCC-ANC-SEA-OGG-JHM (random date, 6/8).

It seems to be doing pretty well. Wasn’t it upgauged even before it was actually launched?
It was increased to 5x weekly shortly after it started, but nothing since then.
How is MSY doing? It is also a pretty new BA destination.Jump to post

??? Do you mean by AC or in general because Norwegian has been flying them between the NE US and northern Europe for awhile now.
The whole business plan of Icelandair and WOW is to connect Europe and the US via KEF. If they consistently have pax missing their onward flights they would go under. Thus I would be confident to book a 50min connection knowing that FI will do everything it can in order for me to make that connection.Jump to post

As always PatrickZ80 is obsessed with connecting pax and will probably soon mention APD and how Norwegian should not be based in LGW.

Alphabetical is more work, simply because you first need to look for your destination city, then you look for the departure time (a 2 step process). With chronological, you simply look by departure time. This is most likely why the rest of the world does it this way. Chronological is also a 2 step ...Jump to post
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

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

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.

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!

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.
