AMS/CDG-LAX really is nothing to do with DL somehow wanting to add a Europe-LA flight, but all about the JV desiring more capacity to LAX for S18, and DL having the resources to perform it among partners. Remember all flying from AMS+CDG are coordinated between partners and equipment and route assig...Jump to post

What is probably the most comparable destination to HNL in Europe? There is no a shortage of beach markets accessible from Europe, hence the massive European tour industry. Close by we have entire Mediterranean basin from one end to the other, Canary Islands, North Africa/Egypt. Bit further have ma...Jump to post
If most Europeans have zero interest in Hawaii, why did Hawaii see 142,648 visitor arrivals combined from the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland in 2016? This does not include the rest of the European countries as well. There were more visitors from Europe then NZ which offers n...Jump to post
Nothing if ever. Having a framework for the establishment of the future air-service agreement is hardly grounds to expect flights. China has an air-service agreement with tons of nations (virtually entire Africa and South America), yet no service. I mean we don't see Chinese airlines in Peru, Argent...Jump to post
I'm convinced we will see Asia for DL become more like Europe for DL. A few years ago (early part of this decade?) DL stopped their last onward Europe destination of India after at one point have 2 India destinations from Amsterdam; and way back Frankfurt before that. That being said, ICN/KE, PEK,C...Jump to post
There have been ATR operators in China going back to 1990s - CAAC, China Xinjiang, China Southern, etc
More recently at Paris Air Show both China’s Xuzhou and China's Tianju places LOI for ATR42.
Great results for August.
While not directly related to airlines, but certainly an indication of things to come Moodys upped its forecast GDP growth rate for Turkey following 5.1 growth in Q2. Turkey actually forecast to have the top economic growth of any G20 nation excluding China and India.
Well at least we have Baltia/USglobal to root for still
It isn't dumping since no manufacturer has a realistic competing product. Dumping has nothing to do with existence of a competitor product.

BBD managed to use benefits of government money as a crutch while turning around selling the product at pricing that is clearly a loss.
In frankness, BBD aerospace business or even entire company should be bankrupt at this point if not for the sweetheart government deal.
After a string of construction setbacks, the project is now in the cross hairs of the upcoming 2018 national elections with main opposition party vowing to cancel the project entirely.

Air Canada has reached a deal with its pilots that will allow the airline to increase the number of aircraft operating in its low-cost Rouge unit.

I still find it shocking how Qatar Airways can still expand rapidly like this especially during a crisis that won't be solved for a long time. Dont see how 'crisis' effects air-travel.

According to an email newsbrief: Aegean Airlines (Greece) plans to close its Larnaca – London Heathrow route due ongoing losses related to high costs associated with operating at Heathrow.

MIA/FLL-Cuba is not loss making, especially to HAV. Delta is not looking at adding ATL-HAV they want another daily MIA-HAV. Most other routes will not work right now.

I dont see anything fishy with order. It been well known MH was considering the 787. There is a growing group of airlines that are also opting for 787/350 mix, so MH would not be unique. MH certainly has long relationship with Boeing over multiple models. Also order announcement during PM trip to US...Jump to post

Yes we knew CX was ending DUS as part of the 3 new routes CX is launching.
CX actually ending 3 routes - DUS, DPS and PEK with last 2 transferring to Dragon.

Even retaining merely 3x weekly at LHR, does GA believe it will carry much if any traffic outside of leisure travelers?
Such a poor schedule hardly beneficial for business/premium clients, when there are dozens of potential options otherwise to reach Indonesia on a daily basis from the UK.
It seems Europe/Australia must be better for HU as they are moving capacity instead it seems.Jump to post
That is the PC market, you are talking about. For mobile, it is about 1/3. https://www.netmarketshare.com/operatin ... pcustomd=1
My non-US centric observation is that for personal devices virtually all pilots I know have Windows PC not Mac products. Anyhow, Apple marketshare is merely 6.8 percent globally (12.0 pct in US) as of Q1 2017, so I guess its to be expected that windows machines would far out number macs in populatio...Jump to post

It seems to me TK has hardly "overlooked" ESB.

It just seems that airl...Jump to post

Case is over. Court found Aeroflot did not discriminate, but yet said airline can't tell its crew maximum uniform size they can wear.
I don't think using the A359ULR from SIN to EWR/LAX would be the smartest decision with that configuration. I'd say get a second daily A359 to SFO and give it good connection times to AS/VX both ways, unlike the first flight which is geared more toward O&D and India/Bangladesh traffic. Or add a...Jump to post
