Boring...
Agree! Just think about the time when we could see 747 next to Concorde an DC-10.

Anyone flown on Aurora airlines? (Russia based)
I've been invited to a project to do on Sakhalin, but company will only pay so much for travel expenses, so I'm trying to look at various options.
Despite being close to Japan, it seems pretty expensive.

Hungary Opens Door for Emirates to Provide Lost Air Link to U.S.

The United Arab Emirates is seeking to establish Budapest as a bridgehead for onward flights in a move that could allow two of the Gulf region’s biggest airlines to carry people between central Europe and the U.S.

The application for so-called fifth-freedom rights concerns services to two points beyond Hungary, Saif Al Suwaidi, director general of the U.A.E.’s General Civil Aviation Authority, said in an interview, adding that those locations have yet to be determined, but could include the U.S.

Such flights can make a huge difference in the growth of airlines, opening up completely new markets that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to access. Since 2013, Emirates, the biggest U.A.E. airline, has been extending a Dubai-Milan service on to New York, tapping travel between prosperous northern Italy and the eastern U.S. with Airbus Group SE A380s seating more than 450 people.

Hungary is unusual in lacking a flag carrier after the collapse of Malev Zrt. in 2012, with Beijing and Qatar the only long-haul routes in addition to Emirates’s Dubai service. Peter Szijjarto, the country’s foreign minister, said in Dubai that the U.A.E. application had been received, while his office added that the government is “open to such cooperation” and aims to start discussions soon.

The leader climbs a mountain and lo and behold all his air force pilots are there to greet him.

If there is such a resumption of service between Hungary and the US, then it would be great for the former since we all know that MALEV provided one of the few nonstop services between Eastern Europe and North America (the others being LOT, Aeroflot, and Turkish Airlines). And I believe it should be done with one of its 3-class B777-300ERs too to test the waters.

Seemingly we are about to hear of a B-52neo very shortly. Pratt and Whitney will get the contract with a tweak of their PW1000 GTF family of engines.

The yanks carried out a ridiculous 'defence study' that said it was not worth doing in the 1990s but they did not factor in air tanker gas costs vs gassing her on the ground...never mind the enhanced loiter times over places like Kobani as you wait for accurate targeting data to present on the ground. As well as that most 'hot' B-52 missions are flown from places like Guam and Diego Garcia where fuel delivery costs on the ground are themselves high....not like the old days when they were based in Texas or Nebraska.

The yanks then corrected their gross mistakes some time afterwards ...they also noted that overhaul costs on the existing engines more than doubled between 1996 and 2004...never mind their astonishing thirst for fuel.

Connections EU 'big 4' airports to Asia

I already posted this image on the Dutch forum, but I think and hope it might also be interesting for this forum.

I created a visualisation of the connections to Asian airports from the 'big 4' airports in Western Europe: LHR, CDG, FRA and AMS. Each square denotes one weekly flight. Every row has 7 squares, so each row denotes one daily flight. This includes scheduled direct flights by all airlines (direct, so not necessarily non-stop: I included flights as long as they continue on the same flight number and same plane). I did not include Turkey, as there are so many holiday flights, it wouldn't fit on this map.

Starting in the winter season, I think the main changes will be the addition of more flights to Tehran (from LHR and AMS), and new flights from AMS to Colombo, while FRA and CDG will lose their connections to Colombo.

Amazing map! I am very surprised with Seoul, expected more service from Europe

Jakarta today has daily flights to LHR by GA... it's direct flight, CGK-LHR (GA86) includes 1 stopover (SIN), but LHR-CGK (GA87) is nonstop flight...

formerly there were Air France CGK-SIN-CDG (until March 2016) and Lufthansa CGK-KUL-FRA... I'm still hoping them fly again to my city...

BTW I'm surprised that HND has more frequent flights to Europe than NRT...

Great work Erwin, I posted your chart on FT also, and credited it to you.

One more bit of detail that needs to be added is that Dubai is just not the largest of the group, but they have the largest amount of A380 air frames also.

Now that chart would be even more interesting if you added the amount of seat connections to each city.

It's not daily, but 5 times a week. GA87 (LHR-CGK) is not on Mondays and Fridays. GA89 (AMS-CGK) is not on Tuesdays, so 6 times a week. With the daily KLM flights this makes 13 weekly flights Jakarta-Amsterdam.

OK, you're right... I don't know that CGK-LHR is only 5 times a week...

KLM flights are daily... AMS-KUL-CGK and AMS-SIN-DPS...

I will go from Jakarta to Kuala Lumpur on July 24 by KL810... that will be my 1st time experience with KLM...

Pokemon Go demands access to an A380 in CDG and is stoutly resisted for now. It will all be futile by next week. They'll be upstairs in the bar by then.
