Re: Nonstop to Italy from SFO

Would MXP work better? Milan is more of a business center than Rome, and the fashion industry is pretty big in both Milan and San Francisco. Not to steer this away from SFO, but I've always wondered if the fashion industry in Milan and entertainment industry in L.A. could support an AA LAX-MXP flig...

Re: Did DL, UA, or AA Ever Come Close To Ordering The A380 or 748?

Only route that could support VLA for US3 would be JFK-LAX/SFO, but with that they'll miss multiple available times which is what these two routes' pax prefer, so in short, NO.

Maybe when the price is right, UA will opt for A388 for SFO-HNL. :cloudnine:

Re: VS to switch LAS to LHR in S19 ?

I personally would love to see VS do a LGW plus LHR. If BA can do it, so can VS with even better soft product.

With that said, LHR serves BA's connection to the rest of the Europe and World, while VS's presence in LHR only connects to another International destination.

Re: ONT taking design bids for their new International terminal.

It would be a nice addition to Int'l flights from Far East to SoCal. There are a lot of Asian population on East of DTLA, and traveling to LAX from East LA isn't the easiest at most times.

I don't see it replaces most China ops in LAX, however, more of an addition option.
