Good to see Biman beat AI to the punch and land 787-9s when the opportunity presented itself.

Will we see any ULH flights out of DAC?

I am not sure which routes you will consider as ULH flights from DAC because DAC isn't at one corner of the world like Australia But I would say maybe they can have flights to HND which should be 8 hours or so if they are planning to? Flights to SYD can take 12 hours from DAC I think, considering DAC to SIN is 4 hours and SIN to SYD is 8 hours. Flights to JFK or YYZ from DAC should take north of 17 hours I think? But that's provided if DAC gets CAT 1 certification.

Himalaya Airlines going daily to DAC

They just inaugurated the route in July. This is good to see the route growing.

BG being the only operator on the route, with Bangladesh private carriers having pulled out (I wonder why?), I'm sure Himalaya could fill all their seats.

Who knows maybe B.A will attempt this route in the future, earlier this year they restarted flying to Islamabad again.
Trust me if B.A ever started this route it will be the hottest ticket in town, they could charge whatever they want and still not meet the demand. As we know though , the authorities in Bangladesh will never allow this.

As we know with what happened to Fly Dubai, the authorities make it impossible for foreign airlines to fly to Sylhet, by all accounts Fly Duabi had full pax load on this route, attempted once got messed around after a few weeks, stopped, started again then just gave up.
There was news last year that Air Asia was starting but that still has not come to fruition, I wonder why
BA left Islamabad out of security concerns, on both occassions flights stopped immediately and not phased out gradually due to economics, suspension would not have happened if there was no security issue.

Did BA cease its ISB flights before or after it terminated DAC? BA quit DAC for the same reason as EY, over money. While EY trimmed its route network for which DAC was a casualty, it did so because EY as an airline is struggling to remain afloat. Same wasn't true for BA. BA restructured its route network (I believed the process is called route rationalization) for greater profitability. BA wasn't losing money on LHR-DAC route, it was a steady route however, the CEO of BA at the time believed BA could earn more money on routes where they can have more business class (and beyond) pax. As a result DAC was dropped along with many other.

Things have changed in the intervening years. More J class pax travel to/from DAC now, than back in those days when Bangladesh was heavily dependent on foreign aid.

144 passengers suffer for Air Asia’s flight delay at HSIA

We usually see these type of reports on Biman or other Bangladeshi private airlines, but any airline can have issues.

It's definitely not cool for AirAsia crew to blame Bangladeshi authorities if their aircraft had mechanical issues.

BA ended ISB first after 9/11 and returned after a couple of years, then left again in 2008 after Mariott Hotel was bombed there. They did drop Karachi for not being profitable in 1991 but may resume according to rumors and UK security team visit to the airport.

Etihad has suspened Peshawar in Pakistan since 2014 and that too was initially related to security after a PIA aircraft was fired at while landing there, they had announced resumption a year later but didnt go ahead with it.

Shahjalal Int’l Airport: Third terminal now to cost 40pc more

https://www.thedailystar.net/frontpa...c-more-1824217

That's TK 70 billion - or USD $820 million more.

The entire project for the terminal is now at Tk 205 billion or USD $2.4 billion.

Delhi's terminal 3 costs $2.7 billion in 2010 but can handle 34 million passengers, as compared to HSIA which will handle 20 million with all 3 terminals.

The same thing happened in case of 787-9. It was 15 million extra that Biman paid to Boeing.

Biman could easily grab those in 135 million USD each. At last moment it become 150 million.Surprisingly Biman started with 140 million USD. They could ask 128 million USD first.

Although, there are other customer like Vistara was also looking for those two.
