http://www.hematology.org/Annual-Meeting/ Doesn't surprise me why a 4-class plane would be assigned to the route either when you consider potential clients. BioMerieux and other companies in the French biotechnology industry might have pushed for that flight. Y might be sparse, but I expect J and W...Jump to post
Oh yay another thread for people to complain about the perfectly comfortable 10-abreast 777's. Then by those measures, SQ's 777's don't even have a normal economy section, just premium economy. I need Boeing to have made every single one of their planes about a foot wider than they are right now. W...Jump to post

What airline will you be using?
How did the individual, arrived to airport, pass thru TSA, and understood boarding instructions? Did he not speak or understand ANY english? Was he speaking to another passenger in a "foreign language"? SKJKJSKKS you could not have possibly typed that out not thinking to yourself "ma...Jump to post
Not that he should have been chucked off the plane for it, but how did they know he was speaking Arabic? mariner Arabic has a certain set of linguistic features that make it easy to distinguish from other languages. Examples of this are frequent glottal stops and the preposition "al-", wh...Jump to post
Stop reminding me about how much I hate Air Canada :box: I'm gonna guess that is why the paid political lobbyists on here keep making this about Air Canada. It has to be easier to make the opponent of your client a known hated entity than something so vague as the government or its policies. I thin...Jump to post
Maybe they could use it for Tokyo and possibly Los Angeles services; ANA is planning to send their A380s to Honolulu. It's the second busiest international route from the US. I know Delta has been on record saying it's too big of an aircraft, and they operate the largest hub in the US. The A380 woul...Jump to post
Will the A321neo have the range to reach SLC? If not, I would love to see them bring the dreamliner here. I love Airbus but they should have cut the costs and tried to dump the A338. Great order for Hawaiian. Edit: I didn't realize they were buying so few long haul aircraft in the first place. Sorry...Jump to post
There is. If it were up to EK they would serve YYZ daily, as well as YUL and YVR. The Canadian government won't allow it, to protect AC. So this is exactly what American, Delta and United want (to protect them from EK's U.S. expansion, example: DXB-ATH-EWR and DXB-MXP-JFK)...? Heh... No. Those are ...Jump to post
2-4-3 requires an extra entertainment box per row, and because the seats are all arranged in different groupings, its more expensive to produce 1/3rd of the rows as 2 seats, one as 4 seats, one as 3 seats instead of the entire plane being the same. Its also only useful until bookings are full to a c...Jump to post
Sorry if this is off-topic but why is DTW-AMS such a popular route? I didn't think DTW was a particularly big port of entry. Lots of automotive professionals flying it? The venture between KLM and Northwest was one of the first successful transoceanic joint ventures. Much of the capacity on that ro...Jump to post

I would imagine that being the only A338 customer makes the resale opportunities incredibly difficult and increases the cost for the lessor. I am surprised that the A338 left the factory in the first place, and it looks like it's going to be a waste of money for Airbus at this point. I wonder who wi...Jump to post

Does AS mix their two premerger fleets? For example, if I was on a route that was AS only premerger, would I be able to fly on an A32X? Or do they only use repainted aircraft on these routes? Do the A32X stay within VX routes?Jump to post

Why would a huge A330 customer like DL order 787s - an aircraft they've gone well out of their way to avoid operating - to replace their older A330s when they still have 25 more on the way? Well out of their way? They cancelled an order that Northwest paid way too much money for that had to be defe...Jump to post
AUS would welcome PAL with open arms, but I'm not exactly sure how big the Austin metropolis area would support the flight.

Why would Boeing give DL that luxury when they've dissed Boeing for many airplanes in the past?

I predict a strategy similar to what we are seeing in their TATL hubs: traffic is either fed through Amsterdam or Paris from a large variety of airports in the US through their joint ventures.

DL realized that the 787 wasn't the right aircraft at the right time for them. Which honestly is a little surprising, with all the p2p TATL flying they do. It just seems the 787-8 would have been a perfect replacement for the 767's they had on those routes. The order they had must not have been a g...Jump to post
AS a huge user of 767 Delta and the world has been waiting too long for the 797. Boeing has been too worried about the "Emiratization" of the world's airplanes beling able to fly 8,000 miles.

I thought I read that UA and SW will be the launch customers; and more articles pointed to UA. Guess DL realized they missed the boat on the 787 and figure they better not be left all alone again.

The C-Series is mostly a 1:1 replacement for the existing MD-80 aircraft and possibly the MD-90 if Delta exercises it's options.

The same can be said for MSP in regards to Seattle and Detroit. I don't think MSP will get ICN service first, precisely because: Delta doesn't want to tamper with their Haneda slots, and MSP-ICN/MSP-HND would be too much capacity.
