Qatar to launch DOH-ATH-JFK with 787 or A380
« on: November 29, 2012, 06:38:57 PM »
It'll never happen, but I've always dreamt of SQ doing SIN-TLV-JFK or CX doing HKG-TLV-JFK. Would be extremely profitable IMHO but too much politics....

TATL markets are too competitive for CX & SQ to enter.

What should happen is one of those all-Y A380 with like 900 seats, but I don't look fwd to that...

EK couldn't find FAs to work their all Y 380s :P.

Considering their primitive behavior, both groups (lehavdil) belong on donkeys/camels etc.

Forget shower "suites". Every couple of hours they should douse the plane. Like a car wash
