Hawaiian's position seems reasonable: No domestic baggage claim at TBIT, There is a domestic baggage claim at TBIT. EY uses that since passengers are pre-cleared at AUH. Same for QF if flying on their JFK-LAX leg. It’s a single belt in the landslide northern end of the arrivals hall. Is QF allowed ...Jump to post

AMS BOM, DEL have been up gauged .
DL has announced JFK BOM which will carry good amount of pax who earlier flew AMS/ CDG BOM on 9W .
Do people know how Delta will handle meals on the BOM-JFK leg. Since the flight leaves so late (12:50am), most people won’t eat the meal they serve at the start of the flight. If they serve breakfast 8 hours after take off that still leaves like 7 hours until landing. Will they offer another meal o...Jump to post
That worries me , too. I did read a while ago that they were committed to keep 747-400 till 2022, so 747-8 should stay even longer. On routes the -8 serves right now like ORD, LAX, JFK I don't see a reduction in capacity coming, so she must be safe for quite some time to come. The 748 to LAX is onl...Jump to post
What are the chances of DL starting ATL-HKG using the B77L? If AA can make LAX/DFW-HKG work and UA make ORD/EWR/SFO-HKG work, then why cant DL make ATL-HKG work?

Just noticed BA has changed the timing for the daytime LHR-BOM flight starting June 14th. BA139 that currently departs at 10:00 AM from LHR will depart at 17:50 as BA135 from LHR starting June 14th. That is about 4 hours before BA199 departs for BOM. So that makes it 2 daytime flights on BA flying ...Jump to post

You obviously haven't flown in Delta international Y in a while. It isnt' as bad as you like to make it out to be and no, EK/QR won't blow DL out of the water, considering that DL will offer: - 3-3-3 Y abreast seating on the 777 vs 3-4-3 on the EK and QR 777s (and EK and QR are flying mostly 777s o...Jump to post
How do the EK and QR hard product in Y beat DL's hard product in Y? How are they superior? I have not flown on EK and QR, so would like to know.

Is there any chance of a LAX to India direct flight by a US carrier? If not, why not? It is the second largest airport in the US, the largest on the US west coast and is a hub for AA, UA and Delta.

I disagree. For Y, Emirates and Qatar hard and soft product beat DL hands down, every time. Whatever premium that DL hopes to get for a "non-stop" flight will be offset by superior product and service on EK and Qatar. Skymiles loyal members may, however, patronize DL in Y despite a higher...Jump to post
It looks like UA is willing to take a gamble during the 2019 holiday season and match DL's price but quickly reduces the price after the season ends charging about $100 dollars more than EK. UA is not going to take the lead when it comes to price in this market, so I think it will be interesting to...Jump to post
I'm curious how they will rotate the airplane. With the all day sit, they could easily fit an Atlanta turn in to rotate off of JNB and PVG. Or they could rearrange the 777 Europe flying to fit in a AMS/CDG-JFK trip to rotate onto BOM. That would be a lot of block hours, though, and might require dr...Jump to post

It seems to me that DL is getting more and more reliant on their partners for flights like LAX-AMS. But like others have said, it just could be too much capacity.

It looks an interesting day as it seems AF took temporary control over the 9W123 slot today at BOM, that means in total they are sending 2 aircrafts, Boeing 777-300ER for their regular AF217/218 flight (instead of Mainline A332/Joon A343) and a Boeing 787-9 as substitute for the canceled 9W123.

Have flown via LAX a few times and connected onto the A380 and 747-400 and it is almost always a chaotic experience. LAX can be crowded and chaotic if you are switching terminals. But the AA terminal (T4) and TBIT are connected airside so you do not have to clear security and TBIT is a nice terminal.Jump to post
ORD, SEA, IAH, DTW, MSP, soon DFW etc are “smaller” than IAD for AF. DTW is not small for AF. They may operate just one daily flight but don't forget it is a DL hub and considering the revenue sharing JV between AF/DL/KL and all the daily flights across the Atlantic from DTW, it is pretty big for AF.Jump to post
