The Welsh government (which owns Cardiff airport) must have offered QR the sort of “help which persuaded it to opt for CWL rather than BRS.19 Jul 2018
Despite the under-performing Tehran route KLM is carrying ever more passengers.
In the first half of 2018 KLM carried one million more passengers.
It also announced today that the load factor for June was a record 90.5 per cent.
That’s the sort of figure you find with a low-cost point-to-point airline rather than a conventional carrier with a complex route network via Schiphol.in reply to: KLM to suspend flights to Tehran9 Jul 2018
As FDOS notes I would imagine it would be a mixture of the two.
Much will depend on the originating point.9 Jul 2018
Following on from Singapore-New York, SIA intends to operate non-stop Singapore-Los Angeles in 2019.
SIA used to ply the latter route non-stop with A340-500s a number of years ago.
Maybe that is why United (who currently flies non-stop Los Angeles-Singapore) announced today it would axe its service from Los Angeles. Instead it would be transferred to San Francisco.
The move takes effect from October. It means that United will have been operating this non-stop Los Angeles-Singapore route for just one year.
United announced the service in June 2017. Service started the following October. It was billed as “the longest non-stop route from the US.”30 Jun 2018
And Delta is considering a return to Dubai.
It would then fly non-stop Dubai to the USA and distribute domestic US passengers through its US hubs. It that were to happen there would be less need for indirect (Virgin Atlantic) flights via LHR.in reply to: Virgin Atlantic axes Dubai route29 Jun 2018
Our piece was written quickly as our aim is to bring you important news as soon as possible.
In a previous posting MarkivJ said he though VS would operate more flights to the US West Coast.
Well I now see there is a new US service which will commence at the same time as VS axes Dubai.
Routesonline.com reports that VS will start a second daily Boston service on March 31, 2019. (VS is transferring its LGW-Las Vegas flight to LHR so it’s not a new route)in reply to: Virgin Atlantic axes Dubai route29 Jun 2018
There have been three months of rolling strikes which were supposed to conclude on June 28.
But it’s reported by the Independent that some rail unions plan to continue their strike action into July.
I am posting this information because we are now running into the holiday season and I know that some of you will be taking vacations in France.in reply to: SNCF: rail unions call for strikes starting April 327 Jun 2018
Montysaurus – I would provide feedback if I could but I’ve never flown Lufthansa business class long-haul.
On the A340-600 Lufthansa positions business class immediately behind the small first class section.
On the A380 you will find business class behind first class on the upper deck. The A380’s lower deck is given over to premium economy and normal economy.
Hopefully one of our readers can provide more information than myself.in reply to: Advice on Lufthansa Business Class27 Jun 2018
Montysaurus- To enable readers to assist you further it would be helpful if you are inform us whether flying Lufthansa from FRA or MUC to HKG.
I say that because the aircraft used from FRA is an Airbus A340-600 while, from MUC, Lufthansa operates the A380.
Please bear in mind that these aircraft types *may* change in the winter schedules. The latter take effect from end October.in reply to: Advice on Lufthansa Business Class27 Jun 2018
