During US summer season, there are six nonstops between SFO-LHR. Decent fares can be had with some planning. If OAK-LGW can't work, why would it work for SFO? BA is keeping OAK-LGW for the summer, at least for now. As I said above, they are currently selling tickets on the flight for April 2019. We...Jump to post
I'm sure the U.S. bears a lot of responsibility for this. I'm not sure I understand the root of the sanctions other than dislike of the regime. No, not at all. The sanctions are purely against the corrupt members of Venezuela's Government and their robbed assets, as well as the fake virtual currenc...Jump to post

In other words...they need to scrape the bottom of the barrel just to get the financial statements done. And these clowns are looking (again) for investment to start an airline?

Delta is not selling high yield anything in MIA. I suggest you check the data. What "the data?" They don't publicized route-specific financials, so post what data you're referring to. Huh?

It is absolutely ludicrous to think that Delta somehow isn't a truly competitive global carrier because it won't serve HKG with it's own metal. It's some what embarrassing that they can't make that market work somehow, but I agree it means little in terms of Delta's overall position in the global m...Jump to post
If this didn’t work, DL’s MIA won’t work. Sure it’s a bigger market, but DL is barely anything in MIA. Spoken out of utter (and apparently, willful) ignorance.

PIT, Michigan, and Ohio have a foot on both sides of that. Illinois is more RSW.

Switching to a 90-seat all Y config is probably more or less the same process, though I think it's highly unlikely DL pilots or any of the majors would ever allow enough scope relief beyond more than 76 or maybe 80 seats. If they really expanded the lavs that's a big deal to change down the road. A...Jump to post
350ml is lot, but I wouldn't be surprised if they start scaling that back. No real significant at the 350ml level I'd say.

Bottom line, I think the legacies have more to fear from this than a carrier flying SWF-PGD. And that's a good thing... Another irony. He will struggle to get $100m to start this, and the US4 (AA/DL/UA/WN) would probably gladly give him $100m not to. That's at the core of the competition problem. T...Jump to post
I guess with fuel going up I am a little surprised they would buy an aircraft hamstrung with a poor seat:weight ratio. I suspect these planes will not have a long life. Why? No one builds a 70 seat jet, which is what these are replacing. Your choice is a 70 seat CR9 or a 70 seat 175, and the 70 sea...Jump to post
The hyperbole in this thread is amazing. There is no real honor in serving one particular city or another with one's "own metal" when that flight is a huge money loser and a JV can basically fix the issue. Delta is not becoming a "minor league player" in the Asia market. DL/KE a...Jump to post

Wow, David Neeleman, born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The same guy that ordered a bunch of Embraer 190/195s (at JetBlue and at Azul).

Can they really sell those assets though? I'm not sure how gates at FLL are allocated. I do know that B6 is getting 5 more gates.
