I'm gonna go ahead and say if you're the 52nd reply, I don't think the post is a duplicate at that point.
I'm also thinking with the KE JV that SEA is done as far as more Nonstops to Asia and DTW-HKG is now pretty redundant as HKG can not be reached through ICN from most every major city in the USA they may even drop SEA-HKG now because it's more effective to use KE to get US based passengers to HKG as...Jump to post
Honestly, I'd say that this MU special livery is perfectly fine. I don't see any problems with it. Most of the other ones mentioned are also good enough in my eyes. As an ULCC, tacky and cheap is likely precisely what Spirit wishes to convey - so it's obviously working :lol: (the lettering is black ...Jump to post
B-HNL, the very first 777 ever built I thought N777UA was the first 777 to be built? I'm a little surprised that DL hasn't switched over to 10-across yet in their 777s, given that everyone else has. Anyone know why not? Just a desire for a better pax experience out of the goodness of their hearts? ...Jump to post

This whole incident has got me thinking about how at the end of the day, modesty standards are inherently arbitrary. I've seen a few mentions of leggings being "tacky" and "inappropriate," but I honestly don't see how this is the case, since leggings do cover up the required area...Jump to post
If the 778 is discontinued, A.net will be filled with daily threads asking when the 778 (or 77L) will be brought back. There will also be lengthy debates as to whether the A350 ULR can comfortably operate SFO-DEL, JNB-ATL, and AKL-DOH.
It will be the 757 and MOM all over again.
I will: Pay more to avoid Fly at a less convenient time to me for business & personal arrangements Take an indirect routing In extremis - not fly at all, (there almost always is a way around the problem) If you're willing to go through all that trouble just to avoid a slightly narrower seat, fi...Jump to post

I can't remember if it was the last thread or the one before that but EK413 mentioned that QF were considering not renewing leases on the 2 remaining A330's that haven't been refurbished (EBG and EBL).

It seems like only yesterday that people on sites such as Ausbt were predicting the fall of QF and rise of VA. sell off the 777s, let DL handle all of the N.Am longhaul DL would have to increase capacity to compensate.

While we're on the topic of cabotage, I have a question:
Jetstar operates NZ domestic flights with VH-registered aircraft. How did they get permission to do this?
Financial history and considerations aside, I don't quite understand the painfully slow, measured cautious approach, and "wow" factor QF is taking in introducing the 789 into service. It's not like they are the launch customer and an inexperienced operator, and surely they have done their...Jump to post

Usually, flight 1 is considered to be the flagship route, though I'm sure there are exceptions.

A word about 1:1 replacements. There has *never* been a 1:1 replacement. The 707 had no 1:1 replacement, nor did the 727, 747, 757, 767, or the 772/77W. There is no 1:1 replacement for the DC-9, DC-10, or MD-11. There is no 1:1 replacement for any of the A300/A310 family. The only 1:1 replacements ...Jump to post

Doesn't this mean all legacy carriers are now just LCCs? I took Transat to Greece from YUL and it was pretty on par with the recent 777 service from AC. If that's the case, why would anyone fly legacy carriers? Maybe consumer intelligence will catch-up, or a downturn in traffic will lead to rising ...Jump to post
