Trash yields are being generated by non-GIG/GRU flights. GIG is paying the price for the unsustainable strategy of launching several flights from FOR, BSB etc. That came on top of the GRU-JFK/MIA flights that were launched by O6 which are do not have very healthy loads. Another phenomenon is the fac...Jump to post

LATAM has issued a communication to travel agents informing that both GIG-MIA and GIG-MCO routes will cease to be operated. With the end of IATA Winter 2018/2019 season, long-haul flying by LATAM Brazil at GIG will be history. In Portuguese: https://www.latamtrade.com/pt_br/comunicados/Suspension_de...Jump to post
We all knew this was coming the second Delta applied for MSP-HND. Even if they are successful at obtaining flexibility, they will stay put until the new frequencies are allocated.Jump to post
In theory, it is immediately valid, but nobody will act on it until it is signed off by Congress, because the measure loses effect if not.
If ever approved by Congress, I don’t think anyone should fear the measure being reversed. The ownership structure would be grandfathered.
Well, I haven't seen any explanation from either side on how the change was agreed. Considering that no new frequency has been granted to Azul within the terms of the bilateral agreement, which would have been published by the Brazilian ANAC, those frequencies can only have been granted through the ...Jump to post

Rio Branco lies in the Northwest of Brazil, so the incident actually took place a little bit past mid-flight.
The injuries seem not to have been so serious, otherwise they would have diverted to VVI.
It shocks me how limited long-haul flying is from German cities other than FRA and MUC. I compare it with Canada, where cities like YOW, YHZ, YEG all have long-haul flights even though they're far smaller than HAM. You shouldn't, since North America does not have the coverage of intercontinental hu...Jump to post
Terminal 1 has become sort of a pier to Terminal 2. Even though all of its terminal facilities are still intact, it has become a mere domestic concourse. You could even call it Pier North, since it’s usage is equivalent to the new Pier South. Pier South has a convertible section, since international...Jump to post

That's great news for AUS, but I was really hoping for a flight to STL first. With the addition of Bayer due to the Monsanto takeover, along with AB InBev, Merck, Nestlé, JAB etc., Lufthansa has plenty of companies in its catchment area for the flight to work. MUC is highly congested and nearly out ...Jump to post

It is just incredible how American struggles at FRA.Jump to post
The permission to operate in Brazil as a foreign carrier does not mean anything. That is necessary if the airline wants to issue tickets from a Brazilian POS.
In this case, it is more than that, but it is not an AOC application.
Is this like a last minute filing, so that the JV is approved before Brexit potentially complicates things?Jump to post
You guys keep saying that LH won't like this, but I think they will have to suck it up. Why? Because JJ still have codeshare agreements with LH group. O6 still don't offer the same connectivity as JJ. JJ and LH still need each other. Let's not forget that JJ have also applied to increase frequency ...Jump to post
I have a one-word response to your entire argument: Viracopos. If I type in “SAO” I get three choices: GRU, CGH, and VCP. Same if I type in “NYC.” I get EWR, JFK, and LGA. Further, the Dumb Brazilian isn’t sustaining a route to New York. Give it a rest, bud. VCP is actually exactly the model that E...Jump to post
So.....if you're referencing travellers who "go to NYC once or twice in their lifetime" then why would they matter with respect to an airline successfully launching a route? That's something that's not a deep consideration for network planners. VC10er, in their post, correctly stated that...Jump to post
GIG has a healthy demand to/from the Northeast and Canada. If UA invested in the market, they could be succesful. A major hindrance though is the fact that airport does not call itself “New York”.

I think it is a shame that they won't adopt a more logical plan. Considering the nature of the Chinese market, they could evolve to a "one gateway, one airline" policy. It would make much more sense all intercontinental routes from each major airport in China is flown by one local carrier....Jump to post
The news deserve a dedicated thread. The runway works in course are paying off for IGR.Jump to post
Despite the fact that UA indeed started mixing operations before crew integration, I believe that the integration itself from a training perspective was much simpler at UA. CO already operated 767 and 777. There was extensive fleet commonality, whereas that is not the case in the merged AA.Jump to post
