Buongiorno.
Con la notizia dei voli per New York JFK da parte di Neos sembra che ci sia un assalto agli USA e ai vari aeroporti delle città più importanti: è notizia recente il lancio di voli da Settembre su New York e Washington di Air Senegal con lo stupendo A330-900neo

e di Bamboo Airways (Vietnam) verso Los Angeles e San Francisco, sempre da Settembre, con il bellissimo B787-9.

Poi c'è la Pragusa.One, ancora praticamente sconosciuta, che dovrebbe iniziare a volare da Dubrovnik verso Los Angeles e New York EWR con A350 Premium Class dal prossimo mese...

Il titolo è stato cambiato perché parlare di assalto agli USA con voli che rappresentano lo 0.00000001% del traffico fa sorridere.

Il thread stesso verrà monitorato e potenzialmente chiuso se (come crediamo) non ne emergerà nulla di rilevante.

Da MXP ho notato che stanno ripartendo i voli diretti per gli States, entro un mese ben sei voli al giorno. Il timore è che, se qualcosa non cambia, ci saranno più voli che passeggeri....

Buonasera a tutti, dovendo prenotare un volo per gli stati uniti, e dovendo ad esso legare delle coincidenze, esiste un sito dove verificare le cancellazioni effettuate sulle varie rotte dalle varie compagnie, in modo da cercare di prenotare con quelle più "affidabili"?

I "grandi" dei voli transatlantici USA - UK si sono riuniti il 7 Giugno per fare il punto della situazione.


The CEOs of all airlines that offer UK-US passenger services – American Airlines, British Airways, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue, United Airlines and Virgin Atlantic joined on June 7 with Heathrow Airport and other industry-leading CEOs in calling for the re-opening of transatlantic travel, a move that will be essential to igniting economic recovery.
Top leaders in aviation and travel came together ahead of the G7 meeting in Cornwall later to push for the reopening of the UK – US travel corridor. With world-leading vaccination programs in both the UK and US, there is a clear opportunity to safely open up travel between these two low-risk countries, enabling consumers on both sides of the Atlantic to reconnect with loved ones, re-establish business relationships and explore new destinations after more than a year of lockdowns and restrictions. The CEOs urged both governments to take a data-driven and risk-based approach to re-opening borders to travel.
A line-up of American Airlines CEO Doug Parker, British Airways CEO and Chairman Sean Doyle, Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian, Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye, JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes, United CEO Scott Kirby, U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow and Virgin Atlantic CEO Shai Weiss joined forces at the panel event, hosted by Duncan Edwards, Chief Executive of BritishAmerican Business.
The participants spoke up after more than a year of travel restrictions that have deeply impacted the global economy and trade and tourism between the two countries. They discussed the merits of having the US on the UK’s ‘green list’, which means travelers from the US would no longer need to self-isolate on arrival in the UK, as well as the benefits that would arise from the US lifting the UK-related travel ban (the so-called 212(f) order) order to open up the transatlantic corridor for UK residents to enter the US. The US is the UK’s largest trading partner and UK businesses are losing £23 million each day that transatlantic links remain closed. In 2019, 900,000 tonnes of cargo also travelled between the two countries.
In the US, 63.5 percent of adults have received at least one dose, while about half of adults – 139 million people have been fully vaccinated. In the UK, almost 68 million have received shots – more than 75% of the country’s adult population. Studies show that the vaccine programs in both countries are successfully reducing transmission and the severity of infection, plus fighting variants, and case counts in both countries continue to decline rapidly.
Shai Weiss, CEO, Virgin Atlantic commented: “There is no reason for the US to be absent from the UK ‘Green’ list. This overly cautious approach fails to reap the benefits of the successful vaccination programs in both the UK and the US. While transatlantic links with the US are restricted, it’s costing UK economy £23 million each day. We urge Prime Minister Johnson and President Biden to lead the way in opening the skies, making it a top priority at the G7 Summit. Customers, families and businesses need to book and travel with confidence. After 15 months of restrictions, the time to act is now.”
Sean Doyle, Chairman and CEO, British Airways said: “As President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Boris Johnson meet this week, they must address the transatlantic ban that is separating our two low-risk countries at a major cost to our citizens and economies. We urgently need them to look to the science and base their judgements on a proper risk analysis, allowing us all to benefit from the protection offered by our successful vaccine rollouts. In the UK this means making the traffic light system fit for purpose, including a pathway to restriction-free travel for vaccinated travellers, and getting rid of complexity surrounding ‘amber list’ countries, eliminating quarantine and reducing the number of tests passengers are required to take.”
John Holland-Kaye, CEO, Heathrow said: “Connectivity between the UK and the US is one of the great engines of the global economy. The scientific data shows transatlantic travel and trade can be reopened safely and every day that policymakers delay puts jobs, livelihoods and the economic chances of hardworking folks across our countries at risk unnecessarily. We cannot continue to keep locked-up indefinitely. Politicians should seize on the successful vaccination programs in our two countries to begin looking to a future where we manage COVID rather than letting it manage us.”
“As we see people reclaiming their lives and reconnecting with loved ones, it’s clear that the infection rates of our countries indicate an extraordinarily low risk to travel between the US the UK, provided travelers are vaccinated or can produce a negative PCR test prior to boarding a flight,” said Ed Bastian, CEO, Delta Air Lines. “Our modeling studies conducted with Mayo Clinic put the risk of transmission on a plane traveling between the UK and US at 1 in 1 million.”
“We’re proud of the measures American and others have taken to navigate the pandemic and ensure we deliver a safe, healthy and enjoyable experience for customers as they return to travel,” said Doug Parker, Chairman and CEO of American Airlines. “Reopening travel between the US and UK is a critical next step in both the travel industry and the global economy’s recovery. With vaccine availability continuing to expand, we know that our business and leisure customers are increasingly eager to cross the Atlantic, and we know that when they do, it will provide a major boost to the economies in the US, UK and around the world. We look forward to continuing to work with both governments as they make this important decision.”
“Throughout the pandemic, experts have encouraged governments, businesses and the public to follow the science,” said United’s CEO, Scott Kirby. “United and other airlines have done just that and implemented the necessary safety protocols to confidently re-open key international routes like the air corridor between our two countries. Programs like the trials of COVID-free flights between Newark and Heathrow and the US Department of Defense air filtration study conducted on board United aircraft not only contributed to the body of scientific knowledge, they have demonstrated the near non-existent rates of viral transmission aboard an aircraft. And now, through mobile app, travelers can upload verified test results and vaccine records before international travel. All this with the successful leadership of vaccination efforts by both governments, no interests are served by delaying re-opening of these essential air routes any longer. We are ready.”
“The surge in travel in recent weeks has been remarkable as case counts fall and vaccination rates rise and we’re confident that demand for travel between the US and the UK would follow a similar recovery pattern with an established travel corridor between the two countries,” said Robin Hayes, Chief Executive Officer, JetBlue. “As international destinations have opened to travelers across our Latin America and Caribbean network and traveling has been made easier with fewer border restrictions, we’ve seen a notable uptick in the number of people flying to these destinations. Data has shown that people can travel safely when certain health and safety protocols remain in place and we believe the UK should implement revised border restrictions similar to those that have already been successful in many other countries.”
A recent York Aviation report stated that a second ‘lost summer’ of international travel would result in £55.7bn in lost trade and £3.0bn in tourism GDP if reopening is delayed until September. If international travel remains restricted, it will cost the US economy $325 billion in total losses and 1.1 million jobs by the end of 2021, according to analysis from the U.S. Travel Association.
“The millions of travel-supported US jobs lost to the pandemic cannot be replaced without the return of international visitors, and the UK is our No. 1 overseas travel market,” said U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow. “Advancing a science-driven approach to restart international travel is crucial, and a US-UK corridor is a logical place to start because of the two countries’ excellent records on vaccinations and declining infections, as well as their strong relationship.”
The group has encouraged the US government to consider lifting entry requirements for UK travellers who have provided a negative COVID test ahead of arriving in the US or are fully vaccinated or can present proof of recovery.
On the UK side, Prime Minister Boris Johnson was asked to consider removing the need for travellers returning to the UK from ‘green list’ countries to complete an expensive and time-consuming PCR test on their arrival, instead calling for lateral flow tests, used in care homes and schools, with only positive tests requiring a PCR test.


Mentre Etihad cerca di attirare nuovamente i turisti USA negli Emirati Arabi Uniti con voli "quarantena free".
Purtroppo è l’ennesima volta che ci provano. Mi sembra evidente che l’amministrazione americana li consideri come il due di picche.

Ah già la tanto osannata (alle nostre latitudini, e quasi sempre da chi conosce l’America soltanto perché da giovane guardava in tv Hazzard e Arnold) amministrazione Biden…anni luce avanti a quella Trump…come no!…

Come già riportato da qualche parte (forse sul thread A321LR/XLR), Aer Lingus è pronta a lanciare voli transatlantici da Manchester, tramite la sussidiaria Aer Lingus UK.
A MAN saranno basati due A321LR e due A330-300 che inizieranno a volare verso JFK e MCO dal 29 Luglio, BGI da Ottobre 2021, BOS dall'estate 2022.
Aer Lingus ha già usato un A330-300 da MAN verso JFK nell'inverno 1994/1995, essendo stato anche il primo operatore ad usare l'A330 con certificazione ETOPS.
In dettaglio, se vogliamo, altra "piccola" soddisfazione per Airbus e il geniale A321LR/XLR.

Tra l’altro Pragusa sono ancora molto scettico che la vedremo nascere per davvero.
Sono costretto all'autoquote.
Come volevasi dimostrare insomma, non che ci volesse un esperto di aviazione commerciale per capire, come direbbero gli angloparlanti, che è uno scam.

Pragusa.One has missed its planned launch dates for flights from Dubrovnik to Newark and Los Angeles. Operations were due to commence on June 21 and June 22, respectively. No explanation has been given for the start-up's failure to inaugurate flights with wet-leased Airbus A330-200 and A340-300 aircraft. Commenting on public scepticism over the company’s plans, its CEO, Krešimir Budinski, said last month, “Let them live in their own cosmos. Sending a message and trying to change their mindsets is a job for a psychiatrist”. At the time, he added planned June operations were 99% certain to go ahead.

Emirates atterra a Miami: ieri infatti un B777-300ER ha iniziato il primo dei voli quadrisettimanali DXB - MIA.
1627057501483.png


Emirates is connecting global business and leisure travelers with it’s first-ever passenger service between Dubai and Miami. The airline celebrated the inaugural flight of its four times a week service when it touched down in Miami at 1100 hrs local time yesterday (July 22).
Emirates flight EK213 was welcomed by Miami International Airport with a water cannon salute, and drew in an audience of passengers, aviation fans and guests. For the first flight, the airline operated its popular Boeing 777 Gamechanger, and on the ground, showcased the interiors of the aircraft to guests, featuring its highly popular First Class private suites. With floor to ceiling sliding doors and sleek design features inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Emirates’ First Class suites on the Gamechanger offer up to 40 square feet of personal space each, and ultra-modern design features.
The airline will subsequently operate its three-class Boeing 777-300ER on the route, featuring eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 304 spacious seats in Economy Class for the four times a week service.
Along with Orlando, the new service to Miami provides an additional access point to and from Florida and expands Emirates’ US network to 12 destinations on over 70 weekly flights, providing more choice and convenient connections from the Emirates network to Southern Florida. It also links travelers from Miami, as well as Southern Florida, South America and the Caribbean to over 50 points across the Middle East, West Asia, Africa, Far East and the Indian Ocean Islands via Dubai.
To celebrate the new service, Emirates extended its signature onboard service to include specially crafted mocktails and cocktails on the airline’s food and beverage menu, and customers across all cabins enjoyed a zesty key lime pie dessert to round off their meal. To transform the inflight experience on the way to Miami, mood lighting was set to the signature red, white and blue US colors upon boarding and arrival. Customers in all classes enjoyed the 4,500 channels selection of on-demand entertainment on ice, including a Miami inspired musical playlist, as well as Wi-Fi and Live TV.
The new service will also add to the existing trade connections provided by Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, which has been operating passenger freighter services to Miami since October 2020. Emirates has been offering cargo capacity into and out of Miami facilitating exports of perishables, electronics and other components as well as e-commerce goods. Emirates SkyCargo has also in the past operated several charter flights on its Boeing 777 full freighter aircraft to transport champion horses from Miami to equestrian events around the world. Since 2019, Emirates SkyCargo has moved more than 7,700 tonnes of cargo in and out of Miami.
With the addition of Miami, Emirates now serves 12 gateways in the US including Boston, Chicago, New York (JFK and Newark), Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC and Orlando.
Flights to/from Miami will operate four times weekly on Emirates’ three-class Boeing 777-300ER. Emirates flight EK213 departs Dubai (DXB) at 03:10hrs, arriving in Miami (MIA) at 11:00hrs while the return flight EK214 departs Miami at 21:10 hrs, arriving in Dubai at 19:25 hrs the next day.

Charter, potresti cortesemente smettere di scrivere e successivamente cancellare i messaggi? Può capitare di rimuoverne uno, ma vedo che sta diventando una costante, e la cosa è anche fastidiosa (oltre che vietata dal Regolamento) perchè fa cadere la sequenza dei post e perdere il senso delle discussioni.
Grazie.

Tra l'altro la distanza tra L' aereoporto di Baltimora e il centro di Washington è quasi la stessa che da Dulles.
Il pregio di IAD è la "Dulles Access Highway": una volta arrivato a Tysons Corner ci arrivi in meno di 15 minuti (a volte però ti imbottigli per entrare al terminal), BWI dipende dal traffico della Beltway che può essere veramente pesante, specie in tempi pre-Covid e in orari di punta (entrata / uscita ufficio).

Quando apriranno l'estensione della Silver Line della metro (già pronta ma mancano le autorizzazioni) sarà una opzione in più per arrivare in centro. BWI è servito malissimo dai mezzi: devi prendere una navetta fino alla fermata del MARC e successivo treno fino a Union Station. Da li hai accesso alla metro per andare ovunque in centro.

Mi domando perchè sia British Airways che Icelandair avranno voli diretti per entrambi gli aeroporti (IAD e BWI) da, rispettivamente, LHR e KEF (BA da Ottobre 2021 e ICE da Maggio 2022): come diceva speedbird001 la distanza dal centro di Washington è quasi la stessa (34 miglia per BWI, 26 miglia per IAD).

Non sono sicuro Icelandair ma l'area metropolitana di Washington ha tantissimo traffico etnico da Africa e India, e BA probabilmente faceva da aspirapolvere.
Inoltre copri due aree diverse (anche a livello socioeconomico), su BWI copri l'area ad est della capitale, su IAD l'area ad ovest. Se devi andare ad Annapolis da IAD ci metti un bel po' in più rispetto a BWI.
