Its seems their entire strategy to return to Europe has been a financial failure.
Remember they restarted service first to AMS daily via DXB in 2010 and have been tinkering ever since with Europe capacity, frequency, routings, product etc
Little tidbit. The agreement paves way for C919 certification and entry into EU markets.

I don't get it. Just because Singapore and Malaysia are close to each other doesn't mean a merger would make sense. To me, MAS would be far more appealing as an acquisition target for an airline much further away who will see MAS as an opportunity to have a hub in this part of the world and greatly...Jump to post
My bad. There are various form of democracies. And when you get old, you lost track of time. I'd say there is still experimentation, as we saw recently with the "attempted coupe".

Couple of days ago they announcing dropping a bunch of US and domestic routes, so who knows what they will be flying come next March.
Also their new CEO likely will transition them into a ULCC, so product/pricing could see big changes also.
I would not risk especially this far out.
The thing that makes me question SCASD grants is that they are available to some rather good sized airports that might already have 4-5 airlines serving them. I can see how a community with a single airline or serious lack of air service might use SCASD incentive money to lure new flying, but the av...Jump to post

And yet Delta deliberately shrank at LAX? Why? They were obviously losing money in LA. One thing that happened post merger was the further build up of SLC which took resources away from LAX. They also had the PDX hub which diminished LAX as well. Another thing was in the mid 90s they lost Skywest f...Jump to post

One thing I suspect with switch to MAX-10 is further slip in delivery schedule. This buys GA more time from their original MAX order pushback.Jump to post
Well well. I am sure Boeing played with pricing a bit, but simply walking away from the order would have been costly for GA.
Funny how the GA president made the statement "believes in Boeing aircraft and its technological capabilities.".
