Reminds me of Signature Vacations dot com. The cheap vacation package brand that's in Canada.
Also, why did they take him in a BMW from one spot in the building to another?
I think ET, the largest carrier in this market, will likely add Shenzhen and Chongqing in short term, and long term may venture into markets such a HGH, NKG, SHE. I think NBO-PEK is definitely a missing hole, but with the new Daxing Airport CZ may jump on this . Also, LOS-China is unserved and I se...Jump to post

Any suggestions are welcome.

But to your final question: The airlines make huge bucks off the loyalty credit cards. The credit card issuers buy miles from the airlines which they use to reward their cardholders for spending with those cards, and the airlines also get a chunk of the annual fee charged. And this is what I am won...Jump to post
Before you delete this, it's specific to airline travel. We all know that airlines give passengers perks that are associated with the credit card they use.

Kenya and South African? Two drunks leaning against the bar supporting each other to avoid falling over.

Kenya Airways is looking to add as many as 20 routes in the coming 5 years. It is also looking to repatriate 5 aircraft that were leased out as part of its reorg plan.

I have always wondered why they don't consider doing DUB stops both ways and actually building a 5th freedom market. Thoughts?

AEI is scheduled to deliver a B738 to Ethiopian in June of this year, with the second example in January 2019, on lease from GECAS. I imagine these will replace their 757PFs.

At present, its afternoon wave is small and mainly focused on Etihopia and a few regional destinations.

It's not the first 787 to suffer a gear collapse in similar circumstances. One of Ethiopian Airlines' examples had the same thing happen, with human fault being the reason. Took a few weeks for it to be repaired and be back in service. I think it was ET-ATH.Jump to post
Someone explain something to me. How is it that an organization of 5 million members country wide in a country of 323 million has much sway?

Couldn't agree more. ET has done very well on its LHR route in recent years, and their CEO has been quoted that he would like to see two daily flights into LHR. Surprisingly, some of those daytime flights out of ADD are booked solid. For a bunch of reasons the LHR-ADD flight is likely loaded with m...Jump to post
ET's first challenge at LHR is to secure slots to allow them to operate daily ADD-LHR overnight year round. At the moment days 1,2 in summer and day 1 in winter are morning departures from ADD which can't be helping connections. Couldn't agree more.

Ethiopian Airlines flew to Stockholm and Oslo with Boeing 777-300ER today. Is there so much demand from Scandinavia to Ethiopia and vice versa?

I'm really surprised by this. Is Ethiopian going to fill the void with their daily FRA nonstop to/from ADD? Is LH suffering on this route?

How much demand does Ethiopia have anyway? I mean ET has been doing fantastically and I do love the underdog pulling through, but still.
