What is it about the Houston market that brings so many international carriers? Korean Air, Air China, EVA Air, and Turkish Airlines all fly to Houston. I wonder what about the market attracts so many international airlines. It's like Manchester (MAN) in a way, which has been growing with lots of ne...Jump to post
I think I read somewhere that South African Airways asked passengers to turn off cell phones. It doesn't relate to this, but every airline handles technology differently. I've flown many times before with a camera or cell phone (on Air Canada, Air Transat, and WestJet) and nobody seemed bothered if ...Jump to post
How is Air Canada doing on YOW-FRA? It was turned from year round to seasonal, but is it profitable? What traffic does the route serve?Jump to post
NBO-JFK would be a long flight, but it is for sure possible. Would NBO-IAD also be a market Kenya Airways would want to launch? I've heard that there is good demand between NBO and IAD, and in general IAD and Africa. Ethiopian Airlines flies between ADD and IAD, so Kenya must be a connecting market ...Jump to post
I just wanted to ask from which route they will remove the A380 to make this new A380-flight possible. But since it will be during the winter season they might downgrade destinations such as SFO. During winter 2015/2016 they even parked an A380 arround Christmas time . I think A380 service from HKG...Jump to post
Etihad Airways, Japan Airlines, and Qatar Airways have load factors over 90%. Very good load factors!Jump to post

Maybe its just me, but Mongolia doesn't seem like a popular tourist destination. Not too many airlines fly to the country, and MIAT is a rather small airline that doesn't fly too many routes. Other than SVO and FRA, no other flight to Europe is direct.
Why is TXL flown via SVO?
I don't think that this idea will ever come to life. First of all, even if there is benefits to this idea, airports would not spend the money and time to build a circular runway. Along with that, I think passengers would hate landing on a circular runway. Runways need to be in a straight line, not i...Jump to post
Four engine jets are done with now. Airlines are retiring them because twins can do the job just fine. Other than the A380, no other four engine jet will survive. The 747 passenger models (including the 748) will all be phased out because no airline will want to operate them in the future. The A340 ...Jump to post
Would it be a good idea for United Airlines to purchase new 767-300's? Air Astana bought new one from Boeing a while back.Jump to post
Despite the fact that LHR is slot restricted, CI will eventually be able to move to LHR. It just takes time to find the slots, but it is possible. GA made the switch to LHR, so they must have found good slots for themselves.Jump to post
I wonder if Ryanair will ever fly out of MUC sometime in the future.Jump to post
Qatar Airways first flight to the USA was DOH-GVA-EWR, so it did fly there in the past. I think the ME3 would do well at EWR. They would most likely put some pressure on Air India and United Airlines as they would probably attract quite a lot of Indian traffic that they fly non-stop between the two ...Jump to post
On the topic of this, there is something I think I can add to this. Continental Airlines used to fly between GUM and DPS. I don't know when it was cut, but why was it? GUM is a unique hub for UA because it serves many islands and Asian destinations (like MNL). While it would never happen, it would b...Jump to post
The probelm with the A380 is that its too big for most airlines. It was a unique aircraft, serving as a 747 replacement and holding more passengers. Most airlines don't need it nowdays. Only airlines such as BA,AF, LH,QR, EK, EY, OZ, KE,CZ, TG, MH, SQ, and QF have purchased the jet. At the end of th...Jump to post
Why did Air Canada even upgrade the route to the 787-9 in the first place? Sad to see this route go, but Turkish Airlines can handle the market better. Air Canada isn't the only airline to cut IST from there network as a result of all the problems the country has been having, EVA Air also cut IST a ...Jump to post
India is unserved at oneworld. There is no Indian airline in oneworld at all. This would no doubt help Qatar Airways feed it's hub at Doha will routes from India, as Qatar Airways itself faces restrictions in India.Jump to post
Asia is such a major hole for BCN. Non-stop flights to NRT would be good as there is a huge market for non-stop flights between the two cities. All Nippon Airways or Japan Airlines would also most likely be able to make BCN work with a 787. ICN is being served by Korean Air, while PVG is added as a ...Jump to post
I remember hearing about MH370 back in 2014. What happened to the plane and it's passengers? Nobody knows. Hopefully it is found some time in the future and that all of the passengers are alive and unharmed. There are so many theories about what happened, but I think the most believable conclusion i...Jump to post
There's something that I'm wondering about. Will Malaysia Airlines resume AMS, CDG, and FRA with the A350 in the future?
Why are the A350's delayed?
The only operators of the Fokker right now if I am correct is Austrian Airlines and KLM. There may be a few other regional operators I am missing. Austrian Airlines will retire the Fokker at some point, while KLM is replacing the Fokker with Embraer jets. What is going on with the Fokker 130? Here i...Jump to post
Not surprised to hear this. US airlines launched quite a lot of flights to Cuba at one time, and they aren't all doing good. Too many flights have been launched at one time, and now flying to Cuba is mostly loss making. It's good that Cuba and the US now get along, but Cuba is far from being a commo...Jump to post

Thanks for making another thread. I have some questions that others may know the answer to, including: 1) How is TK doing on HAV and CCS? 2) Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but why did TK start flights to CCS? The country is in a lot of trouble at the moment, and many airlines are leaving...Jump to post
Nice to see MSY gaining flights to both LHR and FRA. It must be quite a big market!Jump to post
If Transavia picked FRA rather than MUC would they have had success? This looks like proof of that. Transavia's problem was a lack of brand recognition. FRA probably wouldn't have the space or slots to accommodate all of the flights that Transavia offered out of MUC. FRA and MUC are different airpo...Jump to post
I find it kind of funny that Vueling leaves Frankfurt when Ryanair and Wizz Air annouce flights to Frankfurt. Not about this, but kind of funny.
I would have never expected Frankfurt to become a LCC hub, but I am rather excited for what will be announced.
This might be unrelated, but apprently AA has been having trouble keeping the flights between DFW and HKG on time, as they were delayed. Is this an issue with the 777 itself?Jump to post
Is it true that some Transaero 747's came from Singapore Airlines?Jump to post
Air China, Lufthansa, and British Airways are still 747 operators.
Sad to see another 747 leaving another airline.
BWIA used to serve LHR, even though I forget when it was cancelled.
Air Jamaica I believe used to fly MBJ-KIN-LHR-KIN-MBJ.
Nice to see LHR re-gaining flights to the Caribbean.
If LHR got a third runway, would BA and VS move leisure flights from LGW to LHR?
Ethiopian Airlines has for sure been one of the best airlines in Africa. They have remained profitable for such a long time and they still are today. The airline has expanded with new routes over time and has very good growth plans for the future. If only other African airlines such as Arik Air and ...Jump to post
DFW actually has lots of space to build new terminals, which is very good for the future of the airport. If LAX had the space of DFW it would for sure be a much better airport.Jump to post
