Re: UA drops NRT-ICN; move 3 737 back to Mainland from Guam

If UA was going to start ICN-ORD/EWR, they would have done it by now. ICN is the missing link at ORD and EWR, but UA must have a reason not to run it. Their loss at ORD is KEs gain.

Re: JAL to announce new routes and medium term plan

JL only has two day time HND slots. I seriously doubt they will give up JFK and SFO for IAH and that airport in Michigan. If those airports were printing $ to HND, than why didn't DL, UA, and NH use those slots for routes from IAH and Michigan city to HND? Heck, DL thought MSP was better (or as Mich...

Re: Remaining AA MD-80 Routes

I live in the flight path to 17L/C/R (east side of DFW, north to south landings), an AA MD80s have noticeably disappeared the last 6 months. ORD is actually getting more as stations are phased out and others are routed to both DFW and ORD, hence DFW-TPA-ORD now in routing. ORD/DFW is the rumored las...

Re: BA to firm up 4 A380 options?

ORD is a frequency market from LHR with significant F&J demand. BA and AA compliment each other. BA has mentioned ORD as a 380 destination, but the restrictions on 380 operations at ORD are the reason BA and EK don't send the whale there. As more pre-clearance locations open and the new 9 gates ...

SEA-ORD will be a yield turn this fall. As mentioned above, AS is probably smart enough to not join the battle.
