Zara clothing stores, the 4th largest in the world has their main distribution and logistics set up out of Zaragoza. Plays a massive massive role in this airport being so busy. They also change up their clothing every 2-3 weeks, so there is constant flow globally (a waste if you ask me) anyway... at...Jump to post
Great to see another star alliance carrier. Does anyone know why ANA hasn't made their way to EWR yet? ANA is primarily O&D TYO-JFK (like BA out of LHR - thats all they need) with NH connecting a 35+ million population with a 25 million+ NYC/Tri State area. Something that MANY on here forget ab...Jump to post
JFK is screaming out for a world class 4 star and above hotel. I know Manhattan is the main attraction, but sometimes one needs to stay at JFK and ughh the Hilton is stuck in the early 1990s, and I'm sure the others are not much better. Even LAX has around 10 very acceptable contemporary hotels one ...Jump to post
Would MXP work better? Milan is more of a business center than Rome, and the fashion industry is pretty big in both Milan and San Francisco. Not to steer this away from SFO, but I've always wondered if the fashion industry in Milan and entertainment industry in L.A. could support an AA LAX-MXP flig...Jump to post
Never understood this Service, LA is huge market but has alot of competition and has 1 stop options to major African destinations via the EU.

Why do you suggest YYC - LHR when they don't fly to Lhr? What is the obsession with all routes must lead to Lhr? Do you not know they use Lgw, did you not do any research? Is that really necessary?

Well a subsidized airline should do the flight from their subsidized country to the other one. It is not a fair practice for airlines that respect their employees and actually have to pay for fuel.

This was a no-brainer, someone in marketing at AF needs to go.
The yields stink to HKG and really all of China which is why CX is losing money and also why DL has entered into a JV with KE. DL does not need to fly to every major Asian city. They have tried HKG from DTW, MSP, and SEA. They all lost money. I think DL will continue to funnel pax into ICN and let ...Jump to post
I've seen the same EXACT thing over Las Vegas, PNW, Colorado Springs etc - usually goes on for a couple of hours. The one in the US was being flown by A red British Antarctica Surveillance plane. Just because it says flight-cal on this plane, does not mean it isJump to post
You may want to consider changing the title, as the plane did not crash but caught fire upon landing. Crashing indicates the plane plunging into the ground. No no, you can crash on the ground.

Is Delta's B763 product really better than LO's Dreamliner? 2-3-2 in Delta 767. LO 787 fleet is inconsistent, muddled with leased aircraft with nonstandard hard products.

In a place like Japan (Tokyo) you cannot buy a better billboard. This will stop the show at NRT and HND, its going to be huge news. Every kid and poser in Japan that travels will want to fly on it. It will siphon off all the travel to HNL, its going to be a bigger deal than most think.Jump to post
I know there's going to be a lot of inertia involved with a heavy 757 being pushed back, but surely the stopping distance isn't 'that' much? The ramper must have been quite close to the nose gear when he tripped. The brakes on these airplanes will make them stop abruptly and nearly instantly at tax...Jump to post
It's not that I do not think DL can make slots work, they just tend to be given crappy arr/dep times (someone must hate DL - hmm cant say I blame them) Anyway, DL is well known in Japan where timing is key, so better times and they would be the best carrier to relocate entirely, but no way will they...Jump to post
Us plane geeks want airports in our backyard, but regular folks do not haha For a backwards third tier city like Denver (especially pre-2000s) They had someone onboard who saw the future and it was a smart move to build DIA and get rid of Stapleton.

There was a period when ever major expect CO was on shaky ground. As a safe guard the online travel agencies would plate everything on CO’s 005 ticket stock.

If UA was smart, and they are, they should go with a business class seat that offers all passengers in J direct aisle access. This would give them a huge advantage over B6, DL and AA. B6's mint product already does this for half of the J cabin. It wouldn't be profitable for them to go all direct ai...Jump to post
The reason for SQ not changing their livery (albeit for very subtle refreshes - if one can call it that) is due to what they felt IS such a strong and iconic brand.

Hopefully they land safely. 16 passengers sounds likes a lot for a G-IV.

Not as easy as you’d think. BA can’t suddenly get their 787/350 years earlier than planned. Otherwise they will have no replacements for them. If I were a betting man I’d say they are more likely to be around after Feb 2024 than they are to be retired early. BA are printing money on those 86J 747s ...Jump to post

Thanks both FlyHappy and sabby for your input.
