Delta HQ said they’re going to resume flights to India next year. Coupled With rumours of delta wanting to invest in jet Airways, does this mean we’ll soon see the end of VS to DEL?!2 Nov 2018
I love the cs300, flew air Latvia from LGW. That said reg LX: I’ve only flown them in J class on a330 from zrh to tlv and it was the worst J class experience ever. Imagine, I was missing BA!in reply to: SWISS route Zurich to Cairo: A flight made of hell!1 Nov 2018
Jason, my point was more – if all they’re going to offer is 2x weekly flights to kick off with, it doesn’t seem like much of a strong incentive to want to target a new destination. SJC, PIT, AUS, even OAK all started out with at least 5. I can’t remember the last one BA started a long haul out of LHR with just 2x20 Oct 2018
I’m still baffled by this decision, but hopefully they know better.
If they needed to fill
Up just 2 slots, they could’ve used these slots to “complete” frequencies to other cities – Seattle for instance. They fly 10x weekly during winter and 12x summer. These 2 slots could’ve made it a double daily (the demand is there, FAs too have admitted that it’s the lack of slots at LHR. bA’s partnership with Alaska airlines has fuelled cruise and transit traffic too).
I’ve flown on AA from CLT-CHS and it’s been ok. So many flights a day. The transit experience seemed fine. So not sure why transit was quoted as a reason. Are they seeing that much transit traffic?!19 Oct 2018
Ha, totally did not see it coming! That said, it’s one of my favourite cities in the US, very friendly people and a really nice historic city centre as well. I’m sure the Boeing expansion (and biotech industry expansion in South Carolina) also played in to the decision. 2x weekly seems less though, don’t most airlines open new routes with at least 3x weekly?18 Oct 2018
Can I go with 3?
St.Louis, Indianapolis or Portland.
I always wondered why they didn’t start direct flights from Portland earlier, but with YVR, SFO and SEA all being fairly big BA markets, they probably want to use PDX for Transit traffic through these cities18 Oct 2018
I haven’t flown them yet but a colleague flew their very old 2-2-2 Lufthansa style business class last spring. He said bad hard product (zero privacy, no direct aisle access) but service was “as good as Cathay”.
In short, if you’re lucky to fly on their 1-2-1 reverse herringbone new 789s, then you get the best of both worlds. If not, well, the soft product still shines!in reply to: Hainan Airlines international business class2 Oct 2018
BPP – I haven’t flown on EVA, but checked with a colleague who flies J class often from Seattle. He’s flown J on both 777 and 747 and said the service was incredible. His comment was – “as good as Korean Air, better than Cathay’s”. He did mention his only gripe was the choice and quality of vegetarian food (special meal) – not bad, but not the best.
