Re: 20 busiest city pairs in the Americas for this year

This list is misleading. It's not showing city pairs, rather it's showing airport pairs. This list would look a lot different if NYC, San Francisco, LA and Chicago had their airports grouped together. For example, EWR-LAX has around 900,000 annual passengers which would put NYC-LAX up to #2. Anothe...

Re: What will Delta replace the 777 fleet with and is DAL going to order more?

I don’t see Delta retiring the 777-200LR anytime soon. Delta uses it on routes like ATL-JNB and LAX-SYD. The A359 can barely make LAX-SYD and can only make nearly 1,000 miles short of ATL-JNB. Delta would need something that can handle 8,439 mile ATL-JNB before they can replace the 777-200LR. That'...

Re: What will Delta replace the 777 fleet with and is DAL going to order more?

IMO DL's widebody fleet will be a mix of A350s, A330NEOs & MOMs. If they need the capacity boost they could always go for the A350-1000.

Re: LATAM to retrofit its 777 - again.

The 777 is a big plane for LATAM. There are some core markets like GRU-JFK/MIA where the capacity is needed. Finding the right balance between the premium business markets and the high volume markets can be a challenge for them. The 777s have almost double the business class capacity that the A350 ...
