Re: Delta to cut Seattle-Hong Kong, announces Seattle-Osaka

To me, DL's seeming inability to make HKG isn't really a shock. Up until CX introduced BOS and AA introduced DFW, HKG was only served from the largest US cities/financial centers. UA (and CO with respect to EWR) was historically strong in those markets, DL was not. As DL builds up LAX, maybe they'll...

Re: Airports where pax had to use stairs to board 747, DC-10, L-1011

The old ATH had no air bridges, so all boarding and deplaning was via stairs. FCO and MXP both used stairs for widebodies back in 1990 when I flew through. I don't know what the situation is like today, but back then, most of AZs 742s at FCO were parked at remote stands. In fact, I only recall seein...
