New York gets a new route to the heart of Tokyo with American Airlines...

Back in November, both United and American applied to the Department of Transport for the right to use the slot at Tokyo's Haneda Airport that had become vacant after Delta decided that its proposed Portland - Haneda route wasn't viable after all, and after a couple of months of lobbying, American Airlines has won the day.

United Airlines to resume Tel Aviv service next month

Following the horrific incidents in October of last year, the three major US carriers as well as most European carriers took the decision to suspend their services to Israel. Since then, we've started to see some European carriers resume their Tel Aviv operations, but up until now, we haven't had any solid indication as to when the US carriers will follow suit.

Review: Qatar Airways Qsuites Business Class 777-300ER (BKK-DOH)

Having experienced the newest Qatar Airways Business Class product followed by the oldest Qatar Airways Business Class product just a few days before, I was interested to use this flight between Bangkok and Doha to reacquaint myself with the most famous Qatar Airways Business Class cabin - the Qsuite cabin.

The latest Qantas schedules confirm reduction in US flights from Australia

Back in December Qantas gave an indication that it would be reducing the amount of flying that it planned to do to/from the US for the Northern hemisphere winter, so we already had a heads up that there would be cuts on the routes between Australia and the US. The latest schedules, however, show that the cuts to capacity are going to be slightly deeper than we first thought.

Delta delays the resumption of its Los Angeles – Shanghai route (again!)

Before the coronavirus pandemic, Delta operated over 300 flights across multiple routes to two cities in China - Beijing and Shanghai - but since the world began getting back to normal, Delta has been taking its time getting its old routes to China back up and running.

American Airlines brings back a Hawaii route & will use a widebody aircraft

The number of domestic routes on which US airlines offer widebody aircraft is, unsurprisingly, low (these aircraft are usually better employed on long-haul routes), but starting this winter, American Airlines will offer one more such route, and it's a route to Hawaii.

Review: JAL Sakura Lounge Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport

I found myself in the JAL lounge for two reasons. Reason 1 - Qatar Airways (the airline I was flying with) doesn’t allow passengers who are traveling on a ‘Business Lite’ fare to use their lounge in Bangkok. Reason 2 - Because the Cathay Pacific lounge had closed for the day and I had to find somewhere else to do some work before my flight.

Emirates will finally resume service to Adelaide this year

It's easy to forget that the fallout the airline industry felt from the coronavirus pandemic is, to some degree, still with us, but the fact is that a significant number of routes that were operating before the pandemic have not yet been restarted, so it's always nice to hear when one such route returns.

Qatar Airways has published a new promotion in which it's offering flyers 5% off bookings for travel through 30 June 2024. There are no hoops to jump through, just a promo code that you need to use, so if you're planning a trip on Qatar Airways and are departing from a qualifying European airport, this could save you some cash.

Review: Cathay Pacific Lounge Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport

Qatar Airways sends 'Business Lite' passengers with elite status to one of the many 'Miracle' lounges in the airport, but as I knew that Cathay Pacific wouldn't turn me away and would probably offer a considerably better experience, that was the first lounge that I went to (I tried the JAL lounge later).

Review: Qatar Airways 777-300ER Business Class (non-Qsuite time-travel edition)

The famous Qatar Airways Qsuite is probably the best-known Business Class seat in the world, and it was a seat that was originally introduced on the airline's 777 aircraft a number of years ago. In this article, however, the Qatar Airways 777 that's being reviewed has not had the Qsuite installed so, a little surprisingly, I was given a trip back in time.

Review: Qatar Airways Platinum Lounge (South) Doha International Airport

If you're flying on a 'Business Lite' fare with Qatar Airways, your ticket will not get you access to the best known Business Class lounge in Doha - the Al Mourjan Lounge. Instead, the airline will relegate you to one of its lesser lounges, and the lounge to which you're relegated will depend on your elite status.

Do I give American Airlines long-haul Business Class another try? (opinions please)

It wasn't just the American Airlines AAdvantage program that I turned my back on a few years ago, the airline itself started to see a lot less of my business, and in a couple of months' time, it will be four years since I last flew internationally with American Airlines (5 years if you don't count one flight taken during the pandemic).

Review: Qatar Airways 787-9 Business Class (Ascent seat)

The best known Qatar Airways Business Class seat is the Qsuite that you'll find on the airline's A350 and 777 aircraft, but because the 787-9 isn't wide enough to accommodate the Qsuite in a 1-2-1 layout, some of the newest aircraft in the Qatar Airways long-haul fleet have an entirely different seat. They have the Ascent seat from Adient Aerospace. and that's the seat that you'll see in this review.

I've recently enjoyed a short but very useful trip to Bangkok, and it was Qatar Airways that flew me there from Europe. Reviews of the Business Class cabins that I flew in are on their way (all four were different), but before I move on to those, I'd like to share the experiences that I had with the airline's ground services in Oslo, in the air, and in Doha - they weren't good!

Two small things that airlines do that I really wish they didn’t

For most people, truly bad experiences with airlines are not a common occurrence, and so while an airline stranding us somewhere overnight, losing our baggage for days, or cancelling our flight at the last moment, are all examples of highly stressful situations, these aren’t the things that annoy me most.

Review: British Airways A321neo Club Europe (Business Class)

Club Europe is the name that British Airways gives to its short haul Business Class cabin and on this trip, I was traveling between London and Cyprus which, at over 2,000 miles, is one of the longer routes on which Club Europe is offered. It's also a route on which BA often operates its largest short haul aircraft - the Airbus A321neo - so as we haven't reviewed this aircraft before, this trip gave me chance to put that right.

Throwback to August 1992 when American Airlines operated to three ‘London’ airports

Aeroroutes has published a fun post in which it shows what American Airlines operations between the US and London looked like almost 32 years ago. Back then, TWA was still around, American Airlines still had the iconic polished airframes, 10-across seating in Economy Class was still a few decades away, reality TV wasn’t a thing, and to be a ‘celebrity’, you actually had to do something of note. Halcyon days!

Qatar Airways customer service is not always what it should be

I'm a big fan of Qatar Airways because my onboard experiences have always been pretty good. Some flights have been noticeably better than others, but I'm fortunate enough to be able to say that I've never had a bad in-flight experience when traveling with the airline (the fact that I'm always in Business Class probably helps!)

The BA First Wing security lanes are closed. This is what it’s like now.

As we reported last week, British Airways has, without any real warning, closed the two security lanes that are attached to the First Wing at London Heathrow T5 while works are done to install new scanners. Since then, I’ve had a chance to try out the alternative arrangement and as promised in last week’s article, here’s an update on what eligible passengers can expect.

United Airlines has said that it is undertaking "the largest overhaul since 2016" of United Polaris Business Class.

United Airlines delays the return of three transpacific routes

United Airlines probably has the strongest international route network out of all the US carriers and that network was due to get even stronger with the reinstatement of a transpacific route that fell by the wayside when the Covid pandemic hit and two other transpacific routes that were suspended last year. With the latest schedule changes, however, that all changed.

How to earn Avios on JetBlue’s transatlantic flights

As JetBlue has a partnership with American Airlines, most people who fly with the airline probably credit their flights to either JetBlue's TrueBlue program or to the American Airlines AAdvantage program.

After two or three years of rumors, Delta has used the Farnborough International Airshow to finally announce that it plans to throw Boeing a lifeline by ordering up to 130 of its 737 MAX aircraft.
