You'd think SQ would have thought this through considering the time it took them to get these... they even got the 2 - 2 - 2 window config on the upper decj done specifically for this setup. Lets hope they can fix this hastle free.Jump to post
Also the expectation that much of the demand will be from legacy carriers on existing A380 routes from Europe to US. That means for one or more of BA, AF or LH, although I did wonder about IAG experimenting on, say, MAD - MEX for IB. This would allow AF and BA to test the waters for more A380 ops. ...Jump to post

This signs the death of DLs Narita hub. The question is will markets like singapore continue to be flown by DL metal or will DL cede this to KE. Other than that, hopefully this means BOS will finally get the attention it deserves and maybe see a return of the 747/A380 to ATL. Does the JV include haw...Jump to post

On the flip side, KE had some high-density 747-400s that are not being replicated with the 747-8 fleet where a 10-abreast 777-9 would be a solid replacement.

How are loads on the LHR-SIN part of BA15/16 ? If they justify having a second daily flight to SIN changing the flight to anything else (be it A380 or A350) would only really mobilize 1 extra frame not 3. That being said 2x A380 to SIN and an A380 to SYD might be a bit too much.Jump to post

Has there been any rumors recently of KE or CI looking to start service between ICN-BOS-ICN or TPE-BOS-TPE?

At SIN at the moment, waiting for KE644, weather problems in ICN, arriving plane (KE643) hasn't been able to take off yet. Being optimistic they predict a 3am departure (instead of 10:30pm).Jump to post
My goodness thats a pretty plane...I’m hoping for a top up order. Is there a strong regional market in Korea for an aircraft the size of the CS100? Maybe strong enough to open up new domestic routes even. I remember KPO used to have quiet some love with flights to CJU (suspended when the airport cl...Jump to post

52J seats is a lot. Compare that to DL's 350 which has 32 and the soon to be refreshed 777 which will have only 28. I can see AA going down the same path and shrinking the J cabin.

CDG is a very good example of this, the outer runways are shorter and are used for landings.Jump to post
You mean the exact 787-9s that are/will be flying around in AF colors to ?

I think this may spell the end of the 789 order though. A333, A350, A380 gives MH a complete solution. So I'd say those 789 will be converted back to new generation 737. Agreed, a simplified A330/350/380 longhaul fleet and 737s for short haul would be much better for an airline the size of MH. Espe...Jump to post

As far as current airlines, KLM is the only airline serving Calgary that has 747's in their fleet. And they'll be gone in two years. There is virtually no chance of regular 747 service to Calgary.
Can't say I'm surprised, they've been suggesting A380 loads are healthy for the past year or two. Heres hoping that A350s will help open up AMS or CDG again.Jump to post
