Dang, is that AH's first US service? If it is, that means it will have a brand new country served direct... From Algeria.

Anyone venture a guess?
That would probably be Miami with LAX in third place.

Oh I remember MIA... Must be a hub for Caribbean and Latin American operations, as well as a feeder city for Europe-Caribbean flights.

Most International Carriers, Spot #2

Well, the answer is......

CANCUN!

By my estimation, with 50 international carriers (excluding Mexican Carriers), Cancun comes in #2 amongst North American airports.

New York (JFK) 61
Cancun (CUN) 50
Los Angeles (LAX) 42
Toronto (YYZ) 40

What??? CUN? Huh, must be the number of charter carriers serving the hub of the Mexican Riviera. Interesting.

Air Berlin to stop serving LAS, SFO and YVR in 2013

Airberlin is realigning its route map to increase its growing relationship with American Airlines, increasing to hubs in the US (Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth) while dropping non-AA hub destinations like Las Vegas, San Francisco and Vancouver.

How can the small Icelandair serve both Boston, Denver and Seattle ?

Do they have flights once a week only?

Actually SAS is planning to open the new line Copenhagen-San Fransisco if they not become bancrupt soon. To avoid this stewards are going to get their salaries cut and be paid 10$/hour

Yeah, I hope SAS comes to SFO. But they have cancelled before . . .

Yeah, SAS will come to SFO starting April next year, with a CPH-SFO service. As a compromise, the airline has axed a 63-year-old service between CPH and BKK. Ouch.

That indeed is a good question. Icelandair (FI) operates B752s that have the range to fly as far as DEN and SEA, and that the airline operates such routes at least three times weekly (BOS is served like daily, same as JFK). In fact, FI served SFO before with a B763, but it was canceled for the season, probably due to low demand.

They market themselfes as the gateway to America from Scandinavia, but Iceland is a bit off the track as flightpath from Scandinavia.

They also offer a free hotel night stay in Reykjavik for travellers from CPH to North America via Iceland.

I have read that Iceland air is a bit old fashioned and that the stewardesses are old and tired like the ones of SAS.

One good thing about Keflavik airport is that it's small. It's not crowded and there's no need for stress or confusion like at other airports.

Routing through a smaller airport like KEF can not only lessen a traveler's stress transferring between flights, but it also allows them to even take a tour of the area in a brief period of time... Maybe go by the volcanos or visit the coastline?

Aeroflot returning to Toronto (YYZ)

Skyteam member AEROFLOT in Summer 2013 season is planning to resume Moscow Sheremetyevo – Toronto operation, after over 4 years of service suspension. The airline is planning 3 weekly operation on board Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, from 03JUN13.

Reservation for this route is currently not available to general public. Planned schedule:

SU114 SVO1025 – 1225YYZ 763 357
SU115 YYZ1400 – 0720+1SVO 763 357

Could this be bad news for the rumours of Aeroflot coming back to SFO in 2013?
