Just another move as they continue to divert more traffic away from connecting at the Detroit hub when traveling to Asia in favor of flowing it over Seattle. It's a shame they have to take traffic away from one hub to make another work. Why is that every time a DL route opens up at SEA, people thin...Jump to post
It was always a head scratcher move to get in the oil business. With the refinery segment struggling, the question is how long will DL be willing to subsidize losses versus any impact jet fuel prices the plant might have. Not a head-scratcher. They did it to lower the crack spread. It did. There's ...Jump to post
Weird to me LAX-SJC is not mainline... There is a lot of competition on that route. By my count, there are 11 WN flights today, 8 DL/Connection flights, and 5 AA Eagle flights, to say nothing of the dozens upon dozens of other LA Basin-SF Bay Area flights. 4x E75s is a good way to offer frequency w...Jump to post

Back in the early 80s when I was a kid my dad took me to STL to a parking lot near Lingbergh Blvd and Missouri Bottom Road. I think this is the location though today according to Google Maps its a grassy field. Do any of the local STL spotters remember a parking lot at the corner of the intersectio...Jump to post
Personally, given the market and competitive dynamics involved, I still think the most likely outcome is Delta's daily 767 being replaced with one of the Japanese carriers' 787s. Beyond that, I agree that ICN is the next most likely Asian gateway. Considering that both have codesharing relationship...Jump to post
Any chance of IAD or (long-shot) DCA? Re DCA: they would have to reallocate a current beyond-perimeter slot (that is able to be reallocated) from SLC to add SEA-DCA. I am not sure they would want to do that given SLC is a hub. They've actually already reallocated that slot pair to new LAX service b...Jump to post

So far, I see FIVE new routes out of SAN on this release: EWR, IND, SLC, BOI and GEG! Amazing! I'm pretty sure that's the most new flights/routes announced at any one time for SAN.

Exactly. Just like MAH4546 said: "Miami-Vancouver does happen to be the single largest U.S.-Canada market without a non-stop." Plus, CX has already established itself as being more than just a HKG carrier on the YVR end with long-running YVR-JFK service. The number of Hong Kongers in Vanc...Jump to post
I would like to ask how one knows the date when the future schedule will be released? I've never seen it on their website. Announced during an earnings call? I usually see it on Facebook.

All those 3E with STL have been going on for years. I don't know where you got 0 flights from in the past. Also DL STL-DTW still shows 5 flights a day in July and August on their site for booking.

Can any Bangladeshi airport handle an A380? Dhaka can handle B747. Are there chances that Emirates will apply for a 5th freedom A380 route like Dhaka-Kolkata-Dubai?

Wait! I thought you would have to be traveling west (and not east) to be able to gain time.

How about which airports serve the most flights 1&2... must be either JFK or LHR... SFO has four: UA SFO-SIN, SQ SFO-HKG-SIN, JL SFO-HND & VX SFO- DCA...

http://flightaware.com/live/flight/UAL1 why Singapore? I could dig Beijing, and definitely Tokyo, but why not SFO-JFK? The most obvious answer is that UA doesn't fly to JFK at all, so that's out. I guess they could apply it to SFO-EWR, but that doesn't seem nearly as prestigious or exotic as SFO-SI...Jump to post
Look at the number of cities where they had no 737s ex-IAH and yet AA was all mainline to DFW. I know you know this, Cubsrule, but STL was a great example in the late-00s.

BUF? Why wouldn't they just serve DTW by the same reasoning + inherently stronger market to the ME and India?

Does the 73GMAX have the range to fly ANC-HND? Of course the route leads over a large area that hardly has any airports so it would have to be ETOPS certified. This requires modifications to the aircraft because the 737 is not ETOPS certified by default. There are plenty of reasons to he skeptical ...Jump to post

I have no doubt that DY will begin adding flights from places like BCN, CDG, FCO, and MAD to places like BKK/HKG/SGN/SIN with them being a lower latitude and avoiding Russian airspace...

It is actually very cold in the morning at SFO no matter the season and the wind blows on some days. It rains during the winter. I live here, too.

1) How can the flight theoretically be daily when when SFO-SIN could depart on the 14th, arrives SIN on the 15th, and arrive back at SFO on the 16th? It seems like it takes off on the 14th, and comes back two days later on the 16th. Many routes operate this way, and it just requires more aircraft t...Jump to post
The article loses me at: At the same time, it has eliminated 22 nonstop destinations from LAX while adding 11. That is obviously only one metric, but it certainly does suggest LAX is a hub whose role is changing for UA.

Looks like service begins on both routes 09MAR17, with the first full day of operation being 10MAR17 once the RON aircraft are in place.

I am surprised on the timing, though, since there will be no Asia connectivity on the westbound leg. MIA arrives at SFO at 2142, and thus only connects to SYD. It will also connect with the new SIN flight, providing what I believe will be the only same carrier one-stop service between MIA and SIN. ...Jump to post

Neither Boeing nor Airbus, but YTZ (Toronto Billy Bishop) is a fairly busy airport and has all scheduled commercial flights operated not only by one manufacturer (Bombardier), but by one type (Q400). I believe YTZ sees something like 2.5 million pax per year.Jump to post
