Interesting to observe how freighter variants can now carry higher valuation than their passenger counterparts.
Gone are the days when cargo operators received the leftover scrap frames, and now instead can operate shiny new expensive frames at premium valuations.
Good stuff. Thanks for posting.Jump to post
Building aerospace division solely around bizjets not exactly the most safe thing to do. Look at how after 9/11, 2008 economic crisis and US Tax law changes how bizjet sales tanked. Its a very volatile business.Jump to post
I would believe TG's Air authority than FAA. Thailand has been cleared from all countries including Canada to fly, except USA ?, After the Boeing fiasco FAA has no credibility now. If you have been following Thailand for a few years you would know how much of a mickey mouse aviation oversight regim...Jump to post
If I did not know any better my experience with Brussels Airlines says they are an LCC already. Frankly, I was not impressed. Eurowings branding has potential and logic behind it.

As pilot for a US airline with significant Pacific ops, I have no qualms about flying through North Korea.
The several times I did it in the past they were extremely professional without any issue. Actually I’d fly through North Korea any day versus the mess China can be instead.
I doubt long term the airline will have anything to do with Carlsbad. An investment group is buying the certificate and will want to make money back on their investment, not run a niche regional carrier. Also as mentioned old man Vallas will be out of the picture having relinquished control and owne...Jump to post
More government cheese.
I wonder over the years if they ever looked at the true success rate of this program. Yes, communities often manage to attract airlines with the program, but what percentage actually remain for 5-years once the subsidy ends?
Let's remember Delta entered a period of general malaise in 1990s, going from industry darling to a troubled example.
The DL we see today is a by product of significant restructuring including trip into bankruptcy.

Op-Ed with the opinion that United offers the best opportunity and public benefit for use of HND slots as its proposing to operate 3 additional frequencies, not just shift existing service from NRT to HND.

I saw ANA put out small video of arrival in Japan and tour of the interior.
United sure messed up by vacating its 4 former CO gates in T-6 directly to AA.Jump to post
I get to deadhead from Asia on occasion have tried both carriers. Personally, I far prefer OZ. They seem fresher and less sterile or boring then KE.

A bit of trivia. CO's largest cargo warehouse in the U.S was located at JFK. Since bulk of NYC freight forwarders were located near JFK, they would tender cargo to this facility from where it would be built up ready for loading on aircraft and trucked to EWR for departure. Opposite process on return...Jump to post
Suspension extended. Our EWR-DEL (New Delhi) service will remain suspended through at least May 8 (eastbound)/May 9 (westbound).

I do wonder if ZipAir may take over JQ's NRT-CNS and NRT-OOL routes (with JQ sticking their code on), allowing JQ to redeploy those 2 aircraft elsewhere (including the 'long-rumoured' European expansion via SIN that keeps popping as a rumour every year).

Given that LAX is a huge bloodbath for all carriers involved. Compare the west coast yields to east cost stuff, it's quite startling. Why are carriers to eager to sink money into LAX and how much is each gate worth to the big 4 airlines? Airlines can’t afford not to have a decent presence in SoCal,...Jump to post
What happens with AA and them losing their AA Eagle terminal? Where do all those RJ ops go?
Also the Western Airlines complex and hangar used by DL today gets razed to make way for T-9.
Well, Southwest and United should be happy.
For United along with adjacent construction of new hangar facility, and being able to colocate with some Star partners into T-9 they should have good room for growth in coming decade.
Any anticipated regulatory issues?Jump to post
