Aer Lingus has announced a surprising new route …to Cleveland

If you sat me down and asked me to name as many transatlantic routes as I can (both existing and potential), I'm not sure that the Dublin to Cleveland route would appear in my first thousand guesses. That, however, is exactly the route that Aer Lingus has now announced that it plans to fly.

Virgin Atlantic delays (slightly) the introduction of its new A330-900neo aircraft

Virgin Atlantic was excited to announce that it will join the SkyTeam alliance in 2023 earlier today but what it hasn't come out and told its flyers is that it won't be launching its new A330-900neo aircraft on the originally published schedule - the inaugural flight has been pushed back by a couple of weeks.

Delta enhances its European summer schedule (in a good way!)

Delta has announced that next year's summer season will see it relaunching a number of routes that were suspended while we dealt with the pandemic, relaunching a number of routes that the airline hasn't operated for years, and launching at least one completely new route (albeit not a very interesting one!). Most importantly from my point of view, Los Angeles will finally be getting a little love.

Good Air France Business Class fares available ex-UK

We don't normally see many good Business Class deals for travel that originates in the UK but Air France is currently running a sale that may be worth a closer look. If you're expecting amazing fares to all Air France destinations you may be a little disappointed but with most major regions covered in one way or another and with roundtrip long-haul fares starting at under £1,300, this is a good sale by UK standards.

Qatar Airways brings back the A380 on yet another route

The Qatar Airways CEO doesn't like the Airbus A380 and had everything gone to plan his airline's Whale Jets would have never flown in its livery again. Things, however, haven't been going to plan and that's why you'll find a number of Qatar Airways A380s operating at this very moment and that's why the airline has just confirmed that yet another of its routes route will soon be served by the world's largest passenger aircraft.

United Airlines has a new route and a new partnership with Emirates

We've known for a few weeks that United Airlines and Emirates were going to be announcing a closer working relationship but it was only in the last 24 hours that full details finally emerged and, to be frank, they're a little underwhelming. A new route that is being born out of this relationship may interest some readers but on the whole, anyone expecting something exciting will almost certainly be disappointed.

El Al brings back plans for non-stop flights to Australia

It wasn't very long ago that EL AL's route options were incredibly restricted thanks to the political situation in the Middle East. With various Arab countries refusing to give the airline permission to pass through their airspace, flights to a number of destinations to Israels's east were uneconomical or logistically impossible. Recent events, however, have started to change this.

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. As with most aircraft orders that get announced at airshows, this order may or may not be fulfilled in the way that it's currently being presented but because this order involves the MAX 10, there's actually an outside chance that the order will not be fulfilled at all.

Emirates is bringing back the A380 to Bangkok

Pre-pandemic, Emirates often operated over 30 weekly flights between Dubai and Bangkok so it's a sign of the times that only 13 weekly flights are operating right now. Still, demand for travel to Bangkok is clearly picking up as Emirates is adding more flights to the Thai capital and bringing back the A380 on this route.

This week's Dubai Air Show had already given us a couple of pieces of good news (here & here) when we heard Emirates confirm that it will upgrade over 100 of its aircraft with its new Premium Economy cabin, but a more important piece of news (for premium cabin flyers) that came out at the same time was the news that Emirates may finally upgrade its sub-par Business Class cabins.

United Airlines is set return to Singapore in January

We've had a lot of news from United Airlines in the past few weeks and between the new flights, new routes and route reboots we heard about a month ago and the 22 daily flights that the airline says it will operate to London next year, I failed to pick up on the fact that I hadn't seen United give more than a vague update on the longest route that it served before the pandemic - the route between San Francisco and Singapore.

American Airlines announces a new Admirals Club for Austin

In the past 12 months, American Airlines has added an impressive number of routes to its Austin network but with the Austin Admirals Club already short of space before most of the new routes were added, something had to be done about the lounge situation at the airport. Well, something *is* being done and it's something that goes a lot further than the renovation project I was expecting - Austin is getting a brand new Admirals Club.

These are the routes on which British Airways will fly its Airbus A380

With multiple airlines questioning the viability of their A380s once the scale of damage the pandemic was doing to the travel industry became apparent, there was a time not very long ago when it looked like Emirates may end up being the only airline operating the biggest commercial airliner we've ever seen. Fortunately, that's not going to be the case and after announcing that it will fly its A380 to Johannesburg in January, British Airways has now scheduled the 'Whale Jet' on multiple other routes.

Air France introduces a new route between the US and the Caribbean

It was back in August that Air France first mentioned that it would be adding a couple of new (and a little unusual) routes to its network and as the dates for those route launches approach, I thought that I'd follow up my earlier post on Air France's routes to the US with a reminder that we'll soon be able to use Air France to fly from the US (and Canada) to the Caribbean.

Flash Sale: Save $100 on select Aer Lingus transatlantic routes (ends tomorrow)

Aer Lingus has launched a flash sale in which it has discounted the price of Economy and Business class fares on its transatlantic routes by up to $100. The discounts appear to only be valid for travel originating in North America and the Caribbean and only on travel taken before the end of the year, so the scope for savings is limited. Still, if you're looking for a last-minute deal across the pond, Aer Lingus may be an airline worth considering.
