UA/CO San Francisco to Tel Aviv?

Several Israeli sources are reporting that Continental Airlines is in the final stages of a feasibility study of a Tel Aviv-San Francisco route, which could be launched by the end of the year.

The airline has a very occupancy rate of 95% in recent months on its two daily flights between Tel Aviv and its hub in Newark, above the industry average. It is the leading foreign airline in terms of passengers at Ben Gurion Airport, and second busiest after El Al Israel Airlines Ltd. (TASE: ELAL), even though other foreign airlines make more flights than Continental to and from Ben Gurion Airport.

In the past, Continental had considered a third daily flight, between Tel Aviv and Houston, where passengers could connect to follow-on flights to the southern US and to select destinations in Central and South America.
The Continental merger with United, to become the world's largest airline, opens the possibility of more flights between Tel Aviv and new hubs (those of United) in the US, including San Francisco. There are currently no direct flights between San Francisco and Tel Aviv.

San Francisco is a popular destination for Israeli businesspeople, because of its proximity to Silicon Valley. It is also a popular holiday destination, and it is also an important hub for follow-on flights across the western US, ranging from the high-tech center in Seattle to the gambling center of Las Vegas.
Continental has not yet decided on details about the route, or when it might be launched. It will also have to decide what plane to use; the airline currently uses Boeing 777s on its Tel Aviv-Newark route.

Continental is also due to reconfigure the interior of its planes, which currently have two classes (economy and business-first class), as part of the merger with United. Continental Airlines Israel general manager Avi Friedman confirmed that, following the merger, beginning in 2012 the airline's plans will also include an economy-plus class on its Israel route.

Pilots' union leaders re-elected at Continental, new voting to follow combination with United
5 March 2011

HOUSTON (AP) - Pilots at Continental Airlines re-elected three top officials of their union, and said there would be a new election after Continental is absorbed into United Airlines.

The Air Line Pilots Association said Friday that Jay Pierce was re-elected to a 2-year term as chairman of the Continental unit, and Doug Marotta and Randy Hodge were re-elected as vice chairman and secretary-treasurer.

Parent company United Continental Holdings Inc. plans to combine the two carriers, including reaching a labor contract covering both groups of pilots and combining pilot seniority lists. After that, the union would hold new elections. The United pilots are also represented by ALPA.

Man accused of assaulting passenger and air marshal on Delta flight from Paris to Atlanta
8 March 2011

ATLANTA (AP) - A man on a flight from Paris to Atlanta has been charged in federal court with assaulting a passenger and a federal law enforcement officer.

Investigators say Brian Pomykala was on a Delta Air Lines flight last Thursday when they say he awoke a sleeping female passenger by fondling her and "indicating that he needed some sex." The passenger alerted a flight attendant, who notified federal air marshals on board.

Authorities say he struck one of the marshals with a karate-style thrust to the throat. The marshal then placed Pomykala in a headlock while another handcuffed him.

He was released on a $10,000 bond on Friday. His attorney declined to comment.

INTERVIEW-Delta exec keen for BRIC joint ventures

BERLIN, March 9 (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines is open for more joint ventures and would like to be stronger in India and South America in particular, a senior executive said on Wednesday.

"We are absolutely open to joint ventures around the world as market needs dictate," Perry Cantarutti, senior Vice-President EMEA, told Reuters in an interview at the ITB travel conference in Berlin.

"The BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China) would all be priority markets."

He declined to comment, however, on whether Delta is working with partner Air France-KLM , Europe's largest airline by revenue, on a bid for Virgin Atlantic [VA.UL], as was reported last month.

Air France-KLM and Delta are both part of the Skyteam alliance. Bringing Virgin into the alliance would give them greater access to London Heathrow airport, Europe's busiest.

Delta, which said in February it was scaling back planned capacity growth in response to the higher fuel prices, is due to start flights from Heathrow in late March. Cantarutti said he was happy with flight bookings so far.

INTERVIEW-Delta bets on upgrades to lure new customers

ATLANTA, March 16 (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines Inc may no longer be the the world's biggest airline, but it's spending big in an effort to become a premium brand.

The airline is investing more than $2 billion through 2013 to upgrade plane seats, refurbish airport facilities and expand in-flight entertainment options to win new passengers and entice existing ones to spend more.

"People pay more for Mercedes than they do for Hyundais," Glen Hauenstein, Delta's executive vice president for network planning and revenue management, said in an interview.

"What we're trying to create is this higher-end product that people are willing to pay for."

There are no plans to scale back the spending even as fuel costs rise. "As a matter of fact, we're doing them as fast as we can," Hauenstein added.

The executive declined to comment on Delta's business in Japan following the earthquake. The company said Wednesday its Tokyo flights have not been canceled and that operations were continuing as normal.

With the 2008 purchase of Northwest Airlines behind it, Delta is making investments to give flyers a good-better-best selection of product offerings, depending on their budget.

Delta is adding lie-flat seats to its first-class BusinessElite section for international routes and refurbishing U.S. airport lounges with full-service bars and new artwork. On U.S. flights, inflight Wi-Fi is being expanded to 223 Delta regional aircraft.

This summer, passengers on long international flights will be able to sit in a new Economy Comfort section with more legroom and seat recline for an additional $80 to $160 one-way.

Apart from the investments, Delta has made other changes to try to stand out from other carriers. This year, it eliminated the expiration of miles accrued under its SkyMiles frequent-flyer program. And Hauenstein said Delta has no plans to stop offering free complimentary snacks such as peanuts on its flights as some large U.S. rivals have done.

INTENSE COMPETITION

Henry Harteveldt, travel industry analyst with Forrester Research, said Delta's moves are designed to set it apart among consumers who can choose from airlines with similar products. United Continental Holdings and AMR Corp's American also have added lie-flat seats in recent years.

"Delta has an opportunity to compete for and win a lot of business from brand neutral or brand agnostic travelers," Harteveldt said.

Delta is mulling other upgrades longer-term. The company is talking to major plane makers this year as it considers ordering hundreds of new narrowbodies to fly U.S. routes.

As airlines merge, the battle for passengers is heating up. United Continental Holdings , which displaced Delta as the world's largest carrier after its 2010 merger, is looking to win international customers. Southwest Airlines' planned purchase of AirTran Holdings will bring new competition to Delta at its home base in Atlanta.

Terry Trippler, owner of travel website Airlinerulestoknow.com, said Delta is playing catch-up to some extent, as international terminals such as the one at JFK airport were long overdue for upgrades. But he added investing in the latest aircraft interiors on the market can give the carrier an edge, especially in attracting lucrative international travelers.

"Delta is going to be a real force to be reckoned with in the future," Trippler said.

United Express commuter plane slides off airport runway in Ohio, 44 passengers on board unhurt
18 March 2011

GREEN, Ohio (AP) - A United Airlines commuter flight from Chicago has skidded off a runway into muddy grass after landing at an Ohio airport. An airline spokesman says there were no injuries.

The accident happened just after midnight Friday when United Express Flight 5916 arrived at the Akron-Canton Airport from Chicago's O'Hare. The flight was operated for United by ExpressJet Airlines Inc. ExpressJet spokesman Jarek Beem says the flight landed safely but then went off the side of the runway.

Beem says the 44 passengers and three crew members left the plane safely through the main boarding door and were escorted back to the terminal.

Weather conditions at the airport were dry at the time of the accident. Beem says the airline is working with federal investigators to determine why it happened.

United is a subsidiary of UAL Corp.

United plane allowed to fly without repairs despite problems reported on 2 previous flights
22 March 2011

WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal safety investigation finds that a United Airlines plane with 112 people aboard was allowed to take off last May without repairs despite indications during two previous flights that the cockpit window was overheating.

Documents recently released by the National Transportation Safety Board show the Boeing 757 was en route from New York to San Francisco when flames began shooting from the cockpit window.

The plane made an emergency landing at Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia.

The captain of the plane's previous flight told investigators he reported fumes and an overheated electrical connection when he landed in New York. He described pointing out the connection to a United mechanic. The same plane also made an unscheduled landing in Las Vegas the previous day because of smoke and fumes.

Delta Pledges $1 Million in Cash, In-Kind Support for Japan Disaster Relief
Mar 16, 2011

TOKYO and ATLANTA, March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) is pledging $1 million in cash and in-kind support to disaster relief efforts in Japan following last week's devastating earthquake and tsunami. The airline's efforts are centered on two relief programs:

American Red Cross and Japanese Red Cross Society – The Delta Air Lines Foundation, Delta's company-managed giving system, is providing an immediate $250,000 cash donation to the Japanese Red Cross Society to support rescue and recovery efforts. This donation will be supplemented by cash contributions from Delta customers and employees who are encouraged to donate via a dedicated Delta-Red Cross website. Donations made at this site will be routed directly to the Japanese Red Cross Society's efforts to assist persons in affected areas. These donations are in addition to Delta's long-standing agreement with the American Red Cross to provide complimentary cargo and passenger capacity, if needed, to help move relief supplies and workers to and from disaster areas around the world.

SkyWish Asia – Delta has committed to match up to 5 million miles against customers' donations to World Vision Japan through its SkyWish Asia program. Delta customers are encouraged to visit the SkyWish Asia website where they can donate miles to World Vision Japan to help transport relief workers and supplies to Japan. World Vision has worked in Japan for more than two decades. In the wake of a disaster, World Vision is often one of the first organizations to begin relief work by distributing pre-positioned supplies.

In addition to the immediate $250,000 cash donation to the Japanese Red Cross Society and the up to 5 million mile donation to World Vision Japan, Delta will supplement any employee and customer contributions with additional cash, if needed, to fulfill its $1 million pledge.

Delta's Japan-based employees also are receiving any needed assistance through a nonprofit organization led and funded by Delta people known as the Delta Employee & Retiree Care Fund. Delta employees donate directly to this fund via payroll deduction or via their internal employee website. Donations will be used to assist any Delta employee in Japan seeking assistance in the wake of last week's events.

"Japan is a core part of our global network and we are committed to finding ways to help those in need following last week's devastating earthquake," said Vinay Dube, senior vice president – Asia-Pacific. "Delta's 1,200 employees in Japan, backed by the support of 80,000 worldwide, are rallying together to do what we can to make a difference and we encourage our customers to join us by donating money or miles to our dedicated charities."

Due to stringent international security and customs requirements, Delta can only accept relief cargo shipments through pre-approved relief organizations including the American Red Cross. At this time, the Red Cross has requested monetary donations. Customers wishing to contribute in other ways should clear these requests through the Red Cross.

Delta is the largest U.S.-based airline in Japan with more than 40 peak-day departures from four airports – Tokyo-Narita, Tokyo-Haneda, Nagoya and Osaka. The company employs more than 1,200 people in Japan and operates an international flight hub at Tokyo's Narita International Airport.

Delta Air Lines serves more than 160 million customers each year. With an industry-leading global network, Delta and the Delta Connection carriers offer service to 356 destinations in 65 countries on six continents. Headquartered in Atlanta, Delta employs 80,000 employees worldwide and operates a mainline fleet of more than 700 aircraft. A founding member of the SkyTeam global alliance, Delta participates in the industry's leading trans-Atlantic joint venture with Air France-KLM and Alitalia. Including its worldwide alliance partners, Delta offers customers more than 13,000 daily flights, with hubs in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York-JFK, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Salt Lake City and Tokyo-Narita. The airline's service includes the SkyMiles frequent flier program, the world's largest airline loyalty program; the award-winning BusinessElite service; and more than 50 Delta Sky Clubs in airports worldwide. Delta is investing more than $2 billion through 2013 in airport facilities and global products, services and technology to enhance the customer experience in the air and on the ground. Customers can check in for flights, print boarding passes, check bags and review flight status at delta.com.

Delta cuts flying plans for 2nd time this year; puts Japan revenue loss at $250M to $400M
22 March 2011


Photo from : http://pic.feeyo.com/posts/517/5176948.html

NEW YORK (AP) - Delta Air Lines Inc. won't fly as much as originally planned this year because of the crisis in Japan and rising fuel costs.

That includes suspending flights to Tokyo and less flying this year in the U.S. and across the Atlantic. The nation's No. 2 airline said Tuesday that 2011 revenue will be reduced by $250 million to $400 million because of a sharp drop in demand for flights to Tokyo.

For Delta, as well as American, United and Continental, the disruption to Japan service comes as high fuel costs have forced them to raise ticket prices and rein in spending. Delta, have implemented eight across-the-board fare increases so far this year; Delta led four of those. Fuel costs have tracked a 38 percent increase in the price of oil since Labor Day.

Delta President Ed Bastian, speaking at the JPMorgan Aviation, Transportation and Defense conference in New York, said fare increases alone won't be enough to cover rising costs. The airline also needs to save money through service reductions and taking old, gas-guzzling planes out of its fleet.

Delta had revenue of $31.76 billion in 2010. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected that to rise to more than $34 billion in 2011. Delta had a profit of $593 million last year, its first since 2007.

This is the second time this year that Delta, which is based in Atlanta, has cut back on its scheduled amount of flying. United Continental Holdings Inc., the parent of United and Continental, has also scaled back its plans.

Overall flying in the second half of the year will drop 4 percentage points. Flights to the Pacific region will grow just 5 percent, down from a planned 13 percent increase.

Delta plans to reduce Japan flying by about 15 to 20 percent through May because of slower demand as the country recovers from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. That includes suspension of service to Tokyo. Last week, Delta said it's putting new flights from Los Angeles and Detroit on hold. Those started in February. But the airline assured it would restore service there as demand picks up again, likely by this summer. Besides Tokyo, Delta also flies into Nagoya and Osaka.

The airline will also slash transatlantic flights by about 4 percent, compared with a 1 percent decrease previously planned. Flights to Europe are the only spot in Delta's network where fare increases haven't caught up with the rise in fuel prices, Bastian said. Without being specific, he said flight reductions would likely come on routes that doubled up with Delta's partners Alitalia, KLM and Air France.

In the U.S., Delta now expects to reduce flying by about 3 percent. Delta's previous forecast was for a 2 percent increase. The biggest hit to domestic service will come in Memphis, Tenn., where Delta plans to cut flying by 25 percent.

The airline also said it will retire 120 of its least-efficient aircraft over the next year to 18 months, mostly smaller planes.

Delta shares fell 20 cents, or 2 percent, to $9.97. Shares of AMR Corp., the parent of American, dropped 3.1 percent while United Continental shares slid 2.3 percent. AMR and United Continental are also presenting at the JPMorgan conference.

United Continental looks to expand Wi-Fi service to more than 200 airplanes
23 March 2011

CHICAGO (AP) - United Continental Holdings Inc. said Tuesday that it hopes to expand Wi-Fi service to more than 200 airplanes through a proposed deal with inflight entertainment provider LiveTV.

The company said its Continental Airlines subsidiary signed a letter of intent with LiveTV that will allow for Wi-Fi via Ka-band starting next year.

Ka-band offers higher transmission speeds that help users browse content-rich web sites, send and receive e-mails and download files.

The service is expected to be available on more than 200 domestic Boeing 737 and 757 planes equipped with DirecTV service.

United Airlines currently has inflight Internet service on 14 planes.

Shares of United Continental, based in Chicago, fell 47 cents, or 2 percent, to $23.50 by early afternoon.

Delta posts slight increase in March traffic compared with last year
6 April 2011

ATLANTA (AP) - Delta Air Lines Inc. said Tuesday that its March traffic rose slightly from a year ago, and a rapid expansion of service left more empty seats on the average flight.

Traffic across the Pacific slowed dramatically, which was likely the result of a sharp drop in travel to Japan after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

Delta said paying passengers flew 16.14 billion miles last month, compared with 16.07 billion miles in March 2010, an increase of 0.5 percent. International traffic, a strong area not long ago, grew even more slowly than domestic travel.

The Atlanta-based company expanded capacity by 6.2 percent from a year ago, to 20.26 billion available seat miles. A seat mile is one seat flown one mile. Airlines usually increase seat miles by adding flights or using bigger planes.

The combination of nearly flat traffic and rising capacity resulted in the average occupancy of a Delta flight falling to 79.7 percent last month, from 84.2 percent in March 2010.

The figures include both the main Delta brand and its regional affiliates.

Delta has been hurt by a reduction in traffic to Japan since the earthquake, which occurred just as the airline was expanding service to Asia. Delta's Pacific traffic rose just 0.6 percent from a year ago, compared with a 13.6 percent year-over-year increase in February. March capacity in the Pacific jumped 18.6 percent.

Average occupancy fell more sharply in the Pacific than in other regions.

Delta announced March 17 that it was suspending service to Tokyo's Haneda airport and said a few days later that it would reduce capacity to Japan by 20 percent through May. The airline said then that the cutbacks would cost it $250 million to $400 million in lost profit.
