KLM was the first; I recall that CI and KL began services between AMS and TPE in the mid 1980s; then Air France had Air France Asie, Lufty used Condor, Swissair had "Swissair Asia" BA started "British Asia" (and Qantas used a separate carrier - can't recall what that was called?...Jump to post

I would love to see Norwegian (or even SAS to return to SEA) to fly CPH-SEA. SAS would never return to SEA, but Norwegian adding CPH from SEA would be awesome. There was a Seattle Times article a while back that suggested they'd add more destinations starting in Fall 2018. I personally hope that th...Jump to post

SU just upped JFK-SVO from 2x to 3x daily so that could explain the reason for there being no need for DL to operate the route. Rumor is also going around too that another Russian carrier has gotten rights to fly to JFK and should be announcing service soon.Jump to post

TS I understand why they orders it but the reason i'm asking about wether it's too far from ZRH because it is still a lot farther from Switzerland to North America over Canada to BOD(one route which TS operates).

Rumors within Norwegian in Sweden says that 2 of the 737 MAX will be moved to Stockholm. These aircrafts will be used for the ARN-DXB route, which today is weight restricted. Thanks for the info. If that happens it'll be interesting to see if they develop ARN even more with the MAX other then opera...Jump to post
I wonder where they could use it. I'm guessing that the distance from ZRH to the U.S would be too far for it?

However I'm not sure whether LX will use theirs to open-up new thin routes or chart...Jump to post

that is correct. I mean, is BUF even a hub or a focus city for any airline? BUF is not a hub or focus city for any airline and I highly doubt there is much (if any) connecting traffic.

Interesting add. Seems like a smart move if there's a market there - Delta seems to be the only airline seriously interested in U.S.-Africa, so they can have it all to themselves.
