Re: Smallest cities with large airports/ hubs

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 ...

Re: Norwegian with LGW-SIN

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...

Alaska will operate 16 nonstop destinations by April this year and Southwest will operate 17 by June. If this quote is correct, we will see at least 2 new routes if not more.

Re: Finnair suspends Chongqing; reduce Nagoya

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...

Re: LH narrowbody all Airbus?

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...

Nextjet are being forced to cease HEL-VST flights in November due to concerns raised by Swedish authorities about poor loads on the route.

Re: MRJ EIS delayed until 2019 "or later"

The aircraft manufacturing market is so difficult. Huge barriers to entry. Mitsubishi will be making a loss for a long time without long-term large-scale financial backing. I have a hard time believing the MRJ will be a financial success.

Re: Finnair to Australia? Possible?

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/...
