Re: US-Japan agree on additional Haneda slots; DOT to allocate

how were the LF on NRT/MNL.. for years they operated 747 then got downgraded to the next only possible WB they can put on a regional route which was the 767. I feel there is some capacity there.

Re: Eva Air Criticized over Porn Grilling

I feel KE should be the carrier of choice. KE shouldn’t affect JL considering JL doesn’t fly to ICN anymore and have limited their flights from HND to GMP.

I’m excited for the a346! However, why isn’t a 747 an option like BA, are they full utilized?

According to CAPA, it’s seems SAN is set on Asia. With SJC recent loss, doesn’t that open up an available route to China? Still keeping fingers crossed on KE though and PR still seems likely.
