Well that didn’t last long! Just five months ago, on May 2, 2018, Cathay Pacific commenced non stop services from Hong Kong to Copenhagen, as part of a major European expansion which also included new services to Dublin and Brussels. The flight operated seasonally (over the northern summer), three times per week with the following schedule: CX227...

The airline will operate this flight daily throughout the summer schedule, and 5x weekly in winter. The flight will be operated by a Boeing 767-300, with the following schedule: OS73 Vienna...
In mid-2016 I first wrote about how Air France was finally planning on introducing inflight wifi, which is an exciting development. Within the past week the airline has shared some further information about their inflight wifi, and it’s great news. The first planes with wifi are now flying, and we now have a sense of the timeline with...
Earlier this week, Ben wrote about his recent experiences flying Delta, and the marked difference in quality of service when compared with American Airlines. As expected, the post brought out a flurry of comments, not only because the question of better is always subjective, but because the topic of Delta always seems to bring up a natural conundrum that...
It seems like every week I’m writing about how another major airline has revealed a new staff uniform. In 2016, American launched new uniforms for their 70,000+ staff to huge fanfare. While the design was smart and professional, the comfort and practicality of the uniforms was a disaster. In late 2016, employees reported that the new uniforms were...
There’s a story that has gone viral regarding United’s October 2 flight from Los Angeles to Sydney, UA839, which landed early this morning (October 4). The pilot declared a “mayday,” which is a distress signal generally used for life-threatening emergencies (less urgent situations will receive a “pan” call). I’ve seen a lot about this in US media, but...
Over the past few years we’ve seen airlines launch longhaul flights to secondary markets. This has been possible thanks to fuel efficient, low capacity, long haul aircraft, and thanks to generally low oil prices. With these new routes comes some trial and error. I commend airlines for trying new routes, but I guess sometimes the math doesn’t work...
I’m not usually someone who reads magazines, though I do find myself reading inflight magazines more than just about any other paper publication. Sometimes I find myself a bit bored on a plane either during taxi or takeoff, so the reading material in the seatback pocket is a natural place to turn. Sometimes inflight magazines are actually sort...
