DXB is an obvious candidate that comes to mind (a population of about 2.5m and about 80m pax - over a 30x multiplier). FRA is probably the highest scoring hub on this specific metric - about 800K people and 60m pax - a multipler of 75x! And MUC has a population of about 1.5m and serves 42m pax - a ...Jump to post

The Finnish-Chinese air transport negotiations were held on 20-21 April in Helsinki. In the negotiations, it was agreed that airli...Jump to post
Originally I understand it was going to be Singapore and Tokyo, but couldn't get Russian overflight permission, so that aircraft went to launching Seattle and Denver. The Norwegian AOC does not have Russian overflight permission iirc. I think the UK AOC should be able to because VS and BA are allow...Jump to post

This is a topic I don't know much about and the thread is quite hostile and polarised. Could somebody give me a rundown to both arguments in an unbiased way?Jump to post

Pretty old, but it still shows Air India's US desires.
Maybe Finnair will consider returning to SEA. Honestly, Finnair would never return to SEA. First of all, any demand on the market can be served by connections instead of a direct flight. They probably have limited slots on their connecting routes, HEL-JFK. Thus if they can get slots, and can fill u...Jump to post
The article in FAZ yesterday included an interview with the 737 fleet Managing captain. He explained qute well why LH has decided to go all 320 and part of that decision was that the 320 neo was available sooner than the 737MAX. LH will still have Beoings in their fleet, the 744 and the 748. The la...Jump to post
A recent article in the New York Times highlights how Saudia Arabia is starting to feel the pinch from continued low oil prices, using the example of the dairy farm of Almarai. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/14/world ... .html?_r=0 For those who don't know about Almarai: https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...Jump to post
Nextjet are being forced to cease HEL-VST flights in November due to concerns raised by Swedish authorities about poor loads on the route. Isn't it more the airport (VST) that no longer wants to sponsor the route? What is the reason for this? Seems counter-intuitive in that any airport would welcom...Jump to post
United has added 5 new long haul routes this year from San Francisco (Xian, Huangzhou, Auckland, Tel Aviv, and Singapore). With their focus on growing SFO and DEN hubs, any chance we'll see more growth there? Believe a second PVG flight is in the works, a seasonal add to LHR too. was recently annou...Jump to post
It's possible, SQ flew to Newark before, a longer flight than HEL-SYD. This thread presupposes that AY would fly to SYD. SYD is a very unprofitable route but there is marginal potential with HEL-PER. It could very well work as another feeder route from western Australia to Europe similar to HEL-BKK/...Jump to post
