the vast majority of people on that TK flight arent just going to and from istanbul - probably 60%-70% transit to destinations beyond the Istanbul hub. Wow, TK, who knew??

I'm excited to see this, as a Louisville native (but no longer living there), but some questions: 1) Allegiant lists Jacksonville (JAX) as a seasonal destination.

Boston's local market demand to all of Asia is substantially larger than Miami's. That's the base necessity to make such a long thin route work. Miami simply doesnt have it, despite all the glorious Swire ties some people on here like to talk about. If I'm AA, JL, CX or any other non-subsidized, non...Jump to post

onward does not need an ' to add an s. just add an s. it's not posessive. Also, United didnt time its SFO - MIA - SFO flights to connect to Asia.

They're doing this because they're pulling ORD - China flying. They literally have no better place to put 787s. Cancun has pretty high fares in the peak winter (actually higher than what AA could get on their China flights), so it makes sense to put them there. United still has better uses for their...Jump to post
When was the last time you were at LAX United? They've COMPLETELY redone the check in and security area. It's much better and nicer than it's ever been.

That route still gets a ton of feed from AA through the inter line agreement that still exists between AA and QR. just like QR at ORD and EY at ORD.

the airport doesnt get revenue from the flight. It could have to pay BA some money for the flight.

Clearly you didn't read Enilria's disclaimer. He said that B6 hadn't loaded all their June flights yet, so the numbers for June are not accurate.

Just a note - Newark airport was referred to as "New York/ Newark" LONG before United / Continental had a hub there.

United dropped JFK-NRT in 2006, years before it merged with CO. When it dropped JFK-NRT, it began IAD-NRT, which it still flies today. First off, I'm not sure if UA ever served JFK-NRT. They do however, serve EWR-NRT. Delta cut it's JFK-NRT route likely so that they can shift their focus to ATL. Uni...Jump to post
Delta flew it pre 9/11 for a brief moment then dropped it right around 9/11. Northwest dropped JFK-NRT around 2005 and with the merger with Delta they re-started it.

The DL KE JV does not include mainland china. China does not permit 3rd party codesharing. That said, you could still fly, say, DTW-ICN on DL and then switch to KE for an ICN- China segment.
