What are airlines doing with aircraft used for China & Asia flying?
Hi – wondering how the US carriers are deploying the wide-body aircraft they would have normally been utilizing for their China & Asia flights?
Here’s one plan…
Hey Dale, welcome.
Some airlines are parking the planes and just not spending on the fuel required to fly them; others are re-tasking them to other routes – both domestic and international. I believe AA has up-gauged some of its flights to Japan with the 77Ws it is not using to HKG. And Lucky writes this morning that AA has started flying some 772s, 788s, and 789s on routes not previously served by wide-bodies.
