Or perhaps not. Big Portuguese market in New England. It's the reason the Cape Verde airlines are there.
As for TAM getting the end of the stick with the 767s, I totally disagree! If those were run down old aircrafts, I would agree but what LAN has sent was actually very good nearly new aircraft with loads of life still to replace ageing tired A332-200 which had already left their best days behind.

Cynicism aside, props to DL for thinking of us poor Y folk. Might not be the most groundbreaking change, but anything added to Y is a nice surprise.Jump to post

All I've ever wanted in life was a BOS-GRU flight (hence my username). But I think any aircraft they bring would be too much. I guess maybe a 763 could do it? My guess is 4 weekly 767. That's only 92000 seats a year. Add in AA frequent flier base, B6 interline, connections to deep South America, an...Jump to post

It doesn't get much worse than Delta as far as the legacies go.
That's pretty great, wish I had gotten one of those VR boxed from KL!Jump to post
That looks remote AF! Glad they were lucky enough to find AND retrieve the debris!Jump to post
AA serves GRU-LAX almost daily. Nonstops drive premium yields. GRU-SFO is by far the largest market between US and Brazil that has no nonstop service. There is a mix of financial services and tech traffic that will use a nonstop and pay extra for it. What are you basing the assertion that SFO is by...Jump to post
When is the first A35J supposed to be delivered? Is QR still the launch customer?Jump to post
I feel sorry for Bombardier. Its pretty standard practice for any new manufacturer to offer extreme discounts to break into a new market. Once you build up a customer base and a good reputation then you can increase prices and make a profit. I'm Australian and our government would not do something ...Jump to post
130 739Er orders over last few years is not chicken feed What???? Have you not seen the huge 737-900 order by delta that has already statersd being delivered? Both of you are making the same mistake. The initial order for 100 aircraft was 6 years ago. 6 years! Let's stop pretending like it was yest...Jump to post
The idea that the airlines should always have been charging you for a carryon is ridiculous and it IS NOT what consumers "have always wanted." Yes, it is. Every single consumer who purchases a ticket on Allegiant, Frontier or Spirit - and I'm sure that hundreds if not thousands have in li...Jump to post

If you mean A321's, I agree but probably from/to the Azores instead of LIS. Either way I fully expect to see TPs A321's at both PVD and BDL.
Seems like N. American and European airlines have been adding flights/frequency/capacity to Portugal a lot lately. Why is the sudden boom? Which missing links in Europe and N. America are still to be had? Any chance of seeing any Transatlantic service from FNC? Can we also see new S. America routes ...Jump to post
GOL's chief is especially interested in giving convenient access to Sao Paulo with CGH-FOR-Europe. That shows this is not just a play for inbound tourists to Ceara. I don't see 2 or 3 weekly flights from each carrier having much impact on the São Paulo market to Europe, there are already direct fli...Jump to post
How long is actually flying time on a MIA-RSW leg? Using the great circle mapper and the cruise speed of a CRJ, the most direct route would take only 11 minutes minus takeoff, landing, and taxi. Adding all that in, gate to gate could be as short as 25 minutes! By the time you check-in, go through T...Jump to post
Wow, quite a win for FOR! So now they have LIS, AMS & CDG for European destinations. Surprised Air Europe hasn't tried it. There is also service from FOR to FRA on Condor and to MXP on Meridiana. A couple years ago I was in FCO and there was an Alitalia plane boarding for Forteleza. Not sure if...Jump to post

Actually seems well thought out in terms of the concept (Airbnb partnership, Skylights, crowd-funded vacation planning, etc..) The practicality of it is TBD, but it'll be interesting.

Given our talk in the AA widebody thread, I see the A330 neo as an essential Airbus offering. The A350 gets all the publicity, because it is a more groundbreaking airplane. But the A330 neo will be superior over a wide range of possible assignments. In fact it is astonishing how good the A330 neo w...Jump to post

They are totally dominating 80-120 seats. I don't know the orders for 190-195 E2, but I have the feeling they are ok against the CS100. How do you say that?
