C Series 300 would work well and the future secondary airports that they should focus on in the long run for 'hub like operations' are as follows:
West coast - SJC or OAK + BUR
Midwest - MDW or MCI
South - SAT (San Antonio) + SFB (Orlando Sanford)
East Coast - BWI

Mabuhay and welcome!
Their current inflight magazine lists WB going to operate to JFK via ACC whilst CAN is planned via BOM. WB has been losing a lot of money over the past decade especially more since the 2 A330s came on board so they need to be very careful as it will only increase the debt of the state overall.

That article is almost a year old. But in reality, based on what I've heard on this site, BKK is rather low yield. It would be interesting to see what kind of traffic exists on YVR-SIN, I imagine there are some decent business ties between Canada and Singapore. Such a long route will also take a lo...Jump to post
http://www.check-in.dk has the headline that CEO from SAS says they are looking for a new long haul plane ... my guess is A321neo plus or A330-800 ...

C Series 100 is ideal for Zambia Airways for the next 3-4 years. They can order 5 firm + 5 options with the latter being able to upsize to the 300 series in case the airline's routes perform well. Also the extended range of the CS1 (5.5 hours max) versus E95 (3.5 hours max) comes in handy.Jump to post
Nobody is quite saying this, but I am getting the feeling that the 737-9 may be the mainstream airplane, and the 737-8 effectively the shrink. Let the record show I'm saying the exact opposite. When the last MAX and NEO roll off the assembly line, the 737-8 and A320neo will have outsold their large...Jump to post

Finally MAN gets a nonstop link to India after so many years of lobbying both AI and 9W !
MAN airport officials for the past 3 years had three main goals ie to get TG to fly nonstop from BKK, CX from HKG and one Indian carrier to either BOM or DEL. Just one more task is left now for them to achieve.

UA need to order 16 additional B781s to replace their 16 B764s down the road. B789 is a better long term replacement option for them for the B763ER offering 38 more seats + few tons more cargo but at least 3-4 hours longer flying range. Their B788s seat just 5 pax more than the B763ERs hence it does...Jump to post
Why does JAL need to create a separate LCC to penetrate these market segments when it can easily do so using its own brand name. Their current B789s seat 195 pax in a 3 class layout so they only need to order more units and have a dedicated sub fleet of B789s with 299 seats i.e. 24J + 275Y offering ...Jump to post

No fan of WN, but really Really REALLY hoping that someday they'll step up and make a big commitment to the 737-10 Bet they could easily fill it to yield from their bigger stations, and it'd definitely be a shot in the arm to that derivative's program.

As stated in the Boeing press release clearly, this is an incremental order for 75 additional B737MAXs so in total 150 have been ordered. It doesn't though provide a breakdown as to how many are MAX8s, 9s and 10s. However a vast majority are for the MAX8 but I expect a sizeable amount of MAX10s to b...Jump to post
I remember clearly that when AC disclosed their 2017 annual results (few weeks ago), this part of adding more A333s was also revealed by them and one member on this forum on that thread, clearly stated that these were ex SQ birds.

I suppose they would look at London as their first European destination. Wouldn't a B767 be more suitable for an airline like this? LON is roughly nine hours away which isn't that far.

This will unfortunately rapidly lead to higher losses overall for KQ.
There is no way this flight can fly nonstop year round with a full payload. They should have flown it via ACC in order to allow convenient two way connections via ACC to ROB + FNA hence diversifying their passenger portfolio base.
Starting 2/1 DOH-PHL Dep 8am Arr 2:10pm PHL-DOH 8:15pm Arr 4:35pm PHL will gain 25 additional destinations via better connections through DOH. PHL local paxs are likely supporting this flight.
