So I think you are missing the big picture. No alliance has walked away from India. OneWorld has BA (as well as Qatar who's main use for OW was India), Star has LH plus all the other ones that serve India and Sky has AF with DL aligning with 9W. India isn't really low yield per se, its just very co...Jump to post
Joke aside, as I said multiple times up-thread, none of the legacies are equipped to recapture the market Only a handful offer F on TATL. They labeled India as low-yield destination and completely dropped out. They cannot order new planes and deploy overnight, even if they have equipment, unions wi...Jump to post
i wonder if the US3 will try to capitalize on this with directly related marketing. Come on now. I know demonizing the US3 is now a trademark of this website, but really?

Maybe you have to put the laptop in the hold but take out the battery and keep it in your hand luggage. This would put me off flying to the US on one of these airlines - there's no way I'd feel comfortable checking in my laptop.

Y'all might want to wait with comments until it's official. Honestly this stuff is popping up on major news networks, no one references anything beyond a non-working link to the RJ tweet and an executive at Saudia, no one published a list of countries, nor an effective date, nor which U.S. governme...Jump to post
let's speculate which 13 airlines would be affected. i'm guessing they would be those who have non-stop flights from the middle east (and apparently africa as well, according to the generally clueless CNN aviation reporter rene marsh). i'll include TK to get me to 13 instead of LY. here are my 13: S...Jump to post
curious to see how agressively UA markets this. i can't remember the last time i saw UA run a local ad campaign in boston. too bad the pmUA 752s aren't ETOPS (and they have fewer than 24 months left of existence because of the fuel tank mod issue). it will never happen, but imagine UA making BOS a 7...Jump to post

Yeah, I certainly don't think there'd be a 3rd daily. But it'd be nice to see KL replace one of DL's 2x daily flights with a 789. i think KLM, whose network has relatively long stage lengths, has far better uses for a 789's economics than BOS. IIRC, KL is upgrading/investing in their A330 fleet (me...Jump to post
87. stupid me mixed up germanwings/eurowings. i think if i was shown eurowings first i would have gotten it correct, as that logo is more modern. my big screw up was the caribbean airlines.
i actually nailed all of the chinese ones. i always confuse kuwait and xiamen in real life. nice work!
does UA have the option to get its T6 gates back? i could see that as an interim solution, as a potential T9 wouldn't be ready for years (5+ years?). remember that LA will most likely be hosting the summer olympics in 2024. i'd love to see kirby replicate AA's LAX flagship entrance in a T9 as part o...Jump to post
unrelated to all the A380 fanfare, but for those who use BOS and live south of providence, parking is now (again) completely free at the wickford junction MBTA garage. i usually take amtrak from kingston, but garaged parking is a definite plus in the winter.Jump to post
wasn't there some form of ME3 previously at EWR? perhaps in the mid-00's. i believe there was; i'm just drawing a blank.Jump to post

Do we file this into the "no kidding" folder? Unless I'm missing something about these reports, this is just a case of an airline placing a large order and receiving a large discount to well below list price. So, why is this news? If this is indeed what the report is saying, a ~50% discou...Jump to post

it doesn't seem like you're able to 'force' apple tv to play this screensaver; apple picks what you see randomly. i suppose once you get the screensaver, you could change how often you download new screensavers to 'never' in order to keep the LAX one.
I'm sure PVD offers up more free stuff that wooed Norwegian their way. i'm fascinated to see what was offered, and would think that it was rather significant. why? because connecticut's CAA put up a lot for aer lingus service, and i think was looking at that as a sort of prelude to wooing an operat...Jump to post

Disappointed not to see the 748 in the mix, but happy that there's an immediate test for Trump.
For the record, I don't see him pushing to cancel the order - and congressional Republicans will conveniently forget about the issue.

the hard product is sufficient both on the ground and in the air, and the soft product (based on early reports) is a significant step above businessfirst. nobody is saying polaris is an ME3 killer, but it's on par with the vast majority of global airlines' business classes. it will all come down to ...Jump to post

Transit connectivity from NYC & Boston to BDL is poor as well; you're basically taking the bus to Hartford Union Station and then connecting to the hourly CT Transit bus to BDL. Conservatively you'd need to allow at least four hours in case the bus runs into traffic. You could hypothetically ta...Jump to post

one of the blogs did a rough economic analysis of B0's business model a year or so ago and essentially found it to be unsustainable. kudos to B0 for proving him/her wrong up to this point. love seeing their 752s at EWR.
