Hainan Airlines announced today (on 21 July 2017, routesonline) the launch of Beijing - Prague - Belgrade route. The Chinese carrier has also planned to add additional frequencies to Europe. In addition, Hainan Airlines is planning on adding an additional 13 Boeing 787-9 in the future. Where will b...Jump to post

I came to the same conclusion. I'm trying to think how I would react - I would probably go to the customer service folks who are always hovering near the kiosk and get help. I have to imagine that most Reps would take me to the desk and check my bag and waive the fees. If this were nefarious - mean...Jump to post
The Max should be able to make it from the West coast. Supposedly the Max has3500and3800 nmi range. I don't know about the moderate elevation and sometimes extreme heat, but LAS and PHX are, distance wise, well within range. If the range spec's are correct, maybe DAL is even within range. Perhaps so...Jump to post
I would somewhat disagree with the higher fares. Recently fares are noticeably higher than they had been a few years ago. Around 1995 or 1996 I flew to MSY. That require a stop and the tickets were around $300. Earlier this year when I flew NK to MSY, it was around $124 one way. This was non-stop, b...Jump to post
I just read another post that said Lan Tam interesting in doing Paulo to Seattle. This is overdue because of Seattles large and fastly growing population from Brazil and Argentina. I would be quite surprise to see any South American service to Seattle. Not that anyone cares about my opinion, but I ...Jump to post
Never was a fan of the Hunchback of Puget Sound, and will never in a trillion years understand why it's maintained the cult of personality that it has among AvGeeks... but all that aside, at least Boeing has finally come to grips with reality. Boeing finally conceded publicly Tuesday that while the...Jump to post
More RE: AS BLI-LAS
I checked out the Alaska website and couldn't find any non-stop flights, from September on. I started checking out August still couldn't find any, and then got bored.
As I sit here and gaze upon a DL757 destined for MSP from MKE, I can't help but think there is no doubt this aircraft deserves a thread for us to show appreciation. The takeoff performance, that nose, the long legs, the L2 boarding door, the tooling that Boeing still has-this beast was a winner all...Jump to post
Great list. I am assuming this is seats each day both ways.
I am assuming we will see PAE-LAS, but I was expecting that anyways. Too bad for those in BC, Whatcom County and others that used this flight.Jump to post

Hawaiian and B6 marriage on the horizon? While it doesn't make a ton of sense so didn't the Virgin America/Alaska match-up. It's no secret B6 wants to eventually expand to deep South America/Across the Atlantic, this would give them instant access to the Pacific side. Not to mention A330's and new ...Jump to post
I just can't believe all the routes DL has added from SEA. You're surprised that an airline is adding various destinations to a nascent hub? :spin: I am just surprised at how many places.DL has added. As far as I was aware, no one had flown MSY-SEA until AS added it. Now we have two carriers. Due t...Jump to post
I just can't believe all the routes DL has added from SEA. Yesterday or the day before I was looking at one of the websites that shows where planes are currently flying and was surprised to see a flights from BNA to SEA on DL. I didn't know they even flew that route. Now MSY. Wow.Jump to post
Thanks for putting this togetherJump to post

UA SFO-BZN OCT 0.9>0.1
I realize this isn't a high profile route or an indicator of how things could be dire at SFO, BZN or UA, but I am surprised this wasn't *'ed.
After all the tit for tat BS AS pulled on WN when it proposed moving its operations from SEA to BFI years ago. There's no way in Hell WN is just going to sit back and let AS have all the slots at PAE. WN will make a proposal also when the time is right. Then not to be left out of the dog fight DL w...Jump to post

Nice of Jet Blue to try and honor NYPD. I think the paint job itself could have been much better. I have no idea looking at that photo that they are honoring the NYPD.

So apparently I don't know how to quote appropriately.

The cost of the existing light rail was over top and frankly not supportable without extreme taxation. Extreme?

4 - Seats. What the heck happened to the pitch!?! I get it, airlines want to make money.

It's about time. Traditionally the largest trans-Atlantic city pair without a non-stop (although SFO-FCO is around the same size), and it finally has service again. Who is flying SFO-FCO? Nobody.

Ridiculous to try and shift the blame to the police. First do no harm. Did this statement help? I would say no.
