Is alliance still as important as it was ten years ago? We have companies like Alaska Airlines which excels by building its own network of partners. I guess for an airline that's more on global scale (vs Alaska), the alliance might help with the reach and value proposition.Jump to post
Another OneWorld member. Maybe I'm overreacting;-)Jump to post
As the JV with KE doesn't cover China, we will likely see more flying from Seattle to Chinese destinations and to ICN but other Asian cities outside China beyond HKG, NRT are unlikely. Not necessarily, DL has been clear they intend to leverage China Eastern's PVG hub. True but maybe more frequencie...Jump to post
Things seem to move just a bit slower at Sea-Tac. There're several projects being talked about to meet the demand. The international arrival facility (IAF), the North terminal renovation and expansion project, now the holding hall for the hardstand gates. Anything else? What is confirmed and what's ...Jump to post
Well it's April 28 in Japan 9:40am. Any announcement? Does it have to wait after market close?Jump to post
Some Typos in the questions may hurt your response rate. Also what's the point of Airlines listJump to post
This is good news for AS who is here to stay in Dal. They can definitely leverage the large flyer base of AA in the Dallas area and market to those AA flyers who are ok with earning though less than on AA metal. If you combine DFW and Dal, it might push to a focus *city* status!Jump to post
Choose four Asians because typically they don't make a fuss and aren't confrontational....yet this one guy did. Christ just imagine if it was four black people who they 'randomly' selected to be kicked off. DISCRIMINATION! I bet whoever made the decision was instructed or decided themselves not to ...Jump to post
To me your post was neither clear nor intelligent. Nobody is flying Seattle/Northwest BACK to ORD to turn around and fly back west to Asia. Maybe they'll fly a little south to SFO or LAX to connect to OW carrier. But back to ORD? Your comment is pointless. There're lots of people who fly thru Chica...Jump to post
I'm just trying to follow this logic. Traveler's from other OneWorld hubs like ORD & DFW are going to fly via SEA on JL instead of flying non-stop on JL or AA from ORD/DFW-NRT? No. Seattle and northwest region flyers who are OW customers and are now flying thru Vancouver and Chicago etc. I thou...Jump to post
A lot of the OneWorld flyers are currently routing through Vancouver or Chicago when they travel from Seattle to east Asia. So I think if JL starts Seattle, the demand will be there, not necessarily all coming from NH and DL but from other OneWorld hubs. I'm just trying to follow this logic. Travel...Jump to post

Can someone explain to me why Hainan cannot join oneworld? Sorry to ask, but I don't know anything on the issue. What I hear is that HU had a subsidiary in HKG which is in direct competition with CX. Not one but two: Hong Kong Airlines HX as a full services carrier, which is now explanning their ne...Jump to post
What's stopping CX from leaving oneworld? Most major oneworld carriers are working against them. QF tried to undermine them with the defunct Jetstar venture in HKG and are now working with both MU and CZ. AA will now likely invest in CZ with their hub CAN virtually next door to HKG. No major cooper...Jump to post
OneWorld needs a large partner in China. Hainan is the only one of China big four which is not part of an alliance. Historically CX had been against HU joining OW. However time has changed. The China Mainland market is becoming every day increasingly important. CX is a founding member of OW and an i...Jump to post
Alaska will adopt brand names like Main Cabin Select, Elevate, etc. but it will get rid of the Virgin brand. It doesn't need the Virgin brand when it can execute on an excellent operation and customer experience.Jump to post
You know what, if Japan Airlines starts SEA, or if Hainan Airlines joins OneWorld, we would have essentially filled this gaping hole and solved the problem many of us OW-ers feel frustrated about in this area.
Anyone thinks it's crazy for Hainan to join OW??
Wouldn't seem to make much sense to fly ORD-SEA-HKG when there are nonstop flights on CX and UA. Same goes for PVG, PEK, and other Asian cities served from SEA. Even if you're flying DL for some reason it would make no sense to fly ORD-SEA-PEK or ORD-SEA-PVG: ORD-SEA-PEK would have a 6:55 layover i...Jump to post
Done. Good luck!
Maybe you don't mind sharing some of the results?
I don't think what they do is to take passengers from your 2 hubs to make it work on a 3rd... this is a logical add to their network and it's more about the seattle hub than it is about ORD.
The ORD- hkg connection seems just ok though. West bound you'll have 5 hours which is a bit long.
Internationally there's BA and Potentially coming back of China Airlines. But Japan Airlines and Cathay are not here. Feels like a big hole for the map of OneWorld. Maybe alliances are things of the past. AS and HU seem to do fine without being part of the big three alliances.Jump to post
The big difference is AA is offering coach class meals only on SFO LAX JFK transcon markets on their 321T. Delta is doing it much wider scale and reach.Jump to post
Love it. Anyone know what aircraft type have they been flying?
Delta definitely can't dislodge AA or UA, but there is no question that they can build up a hub comparable to the level of AA/UA. Look no further than SEA, people on A.net laughed a couple years ago that DL could ever make a dent in AS, and now they have over a 100 daily flights and plans to match ...Jump to post

Ok can we clarify one point please? Travellers of ANY nationality transiting in Canada do not need a Canadian visa if they are only transiting at the airport. They only need visa to their final destination so Transiting won't be an issue. Not true at all. Check Timatic if you don't believe me. It's...Jump to post
Xiamen fare on this route remains ~$474 level throughout this winter which is super low. The route profitability will struggle for a while. However, Shenzhen is a very affluent Chinese city and Xiamen Air is a well-run airlines from the Mainland. I see this route stay. Interestingly they are code-sh...Jump to post
