Kenya Airways and NBO To Merge into One Company

This seems wrong for all the other airlines, although I guess it exists in other places. State-run national flag carrier Kenya Airways plans to merge with Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to compete with other state-owned carriers in Africa and the Middle East, such as Ethiopian Ai...

Re: Delta to cut Seattle-Hong Kong, announces Seattle-Osaka

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...

Re: Delta ends JFK-Havana, return authority

It is not uncommon for the lowest available Y fare on their MIA-HAV to be in the $800-1000 range even two weeks out, for such a short fligh...

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...
