AeroMexico Will Start Sending Some 787s Across the Atlantic to London

Where: Mexico
April 18, 2014 at 9:48 AM | by | Comments (0)

AeroMexico has had some 787s hanging out in their hangar for a little bit of time, and now they’re using them for some new options. The carrier sees the need for a little more demand on one route across the pond, so a Boeing 787-8 is coming to the rescue.

The planes are on their way to three weekly round-trip flights between Mexico City’s Aeropuerto Benito Juárez Internacional and London Heathrow Airport beginning this month, and it will remain that way throughout the summer. This will boost back and forth capacity by like 70 seats per flight, as the 787s replace some 767s on the Atlantic crossing.

New Route News from Qatar, United, and ANA Means New Destination Ideas

April 11, 2014 at 8:26 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· Qatar Airways:
Just last week Qatar Airways made another debut on US soil, as the carrier officially started up service to and from Philadelphia. Things started flying during the middle of last week, as Boeing 777s brought a new international option to the Philadelphia area for the first time in a long time. Nonstop flights will do their thing all the way over to the carrier’s hub in Doha, and after that there are connections available to pretty much anywhere else in the region. Qatar Airways isn’t stopping here, as they will also be heading to Miami in June. After that they will also be visiting Dallas-Ft. Worth beginning in July.

· Emirates:
A new plane is headed to Dallas-Ft. Worth later this year, as Emirates shows off what it can do flying to and from the area. As of now it’s October 1 for the very first flight, as an Airbus A380 will carry plenty of passengers between Dallas-Ft. Worth and Dubai. For those keeping count of the big bird’s capacity it will be exactly 489 passengers heading between the two countries. Emirates currently offers nonstop flights aboard some Boeing 777s, but it sounds like they need a few more seats to keep up with the demand on this route.

Gogo Teams Up with Aeromexico for Even More In-Flight WiFi

December 27, 2013 at 10:50 AM | by | Comments (0)

Aeromexico is getting in on the giving spirit of the holidays in their own little way, as they’re teaming up with Gogo to bring advanced in-flight connection to their flyers.

Gogo Vision is coming to at least 75 new airplanes and aircraft, and the new service will make use of Gogo's Ku-band satellite service for the planes getting the connectivity. It will take some time to install for the carrier’s fleet of Boeing 737s, but they already have a goal in mind. It sounds like in-flight WiFi as well as Gogo Vision should be good to go during the second half of 2014.

Celebrate the Season with New Routes From American, Air Canada, JAL, and More

November 29, 2013 at 8:53 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· Air Canada Rouge:
The budget arm of Air Canada has decided that its customers need access to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios all year long, as it is now going to fly down to Orlando even more frequently. Air Canada Rouge will start flying between Orlando and Toronto throughout the entire year, and it will also boost the service even further—adding two more daily flights—between the middle of December and the end of April next year. Airbus A319s will be responsible for taking to the skies, but you will be responsible for finding a deal on theme park tickets.

· Hawaiian Airlines:
We can all agree that Hawaii is a great place to check out, but we certainly can’t complain about continuing on towards somewhere else instead of returning home. Thanks to Hawaiian Airlines that’s an option, as tickets are now on sale for its new route between Honolulu and Beijing. This is the carrier’s first destination in mainland China, as Airbus A330s are expected to hit the skies on April 16, 2014. The route is still awaiting some necessary government approval paperwork and what not, but if tickets are already being sent out, it’s probably a pretty safe bet to go through. Flights will run thrice per week—enjoy.

Aeromexico, Lufthansa and Delta Lead This Week's New Routes News

November 8, 2013 at 8:14 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· Aeromexico:
We certainly can’t complain about a new way to get to and from Los Cabos, Mexico, and thanks to Aeromexico there's now a new option in and out of New York City. The plan is to start flying back and forth beginning on January 18, as Aeromexico does the nonstop thing between New York-JFK and San Jose del Cabo. The new options will fly once per week, as planes and people will take to the skies on Saturdays around 7am and will arrive down in paradise around 11am—all times local. Sounds like the perfect timing for this kind of flight, as we’re pretty sure there are many in the area looking for a warm weather escape once January rolls around.

· Delta:
More news from Delta this week, as they continue to boost their options in and out of Seattle. The city is hardly a hub for the airline, but they certainly have been busy adding new options and destinations out of the area.

This week it was announced that they will be doing the nonstop thing down to San Diego four times each and every day beginning on June 2 of next year. After that—starting on September 2—they’ll also be heading to Portland with the same type of frequency. There will be some smaller planes doing their thing between these cities and states, as Delta Connection—thanks to SkyWest—will be operating some Bombardier CRJ-900 regional jets.

AeroMexico Says '¡Hola!' to Their First Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Where: Mexico
August 19, 2013 at 12:24 PM | by | Comment (1)

After far too many months of Instagram posts that aren't very exciting, AeroMexico has begun to use the photography social media site to brag about their newest bird. In fact, the Mexican airline is not only snapping pics of a 787 Dreamliner of which they've just taken delivery, but are letting the cameras roll with some 'Instavids', and we can't be happier.

A few weeks ago, the airline began getting its followers excited with a countdown to the delivery date of the new Boeing aircraft, using the hashtag, #AMBoeing787. A week before AeroMexico took the keys to their (big) baby, their account was active with a few videos. A cool one showed off the 787 getting painted in time-lapse, while another offered a peek at it pulling out of the hangar and taking to the skies.

Alaska Airlines, Delta and United Load Up on New Routes

June 14, 2013 at 9:00 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· Alaska Airlines:
Everyone loves Hawaii, and that’s especially the case over at Alaska Airlines. To fill the need for all that island love the carrier is starting up some new service. This week they’re doing the nonstop thing between San Diego and the island of Kauai. We’re not sure if the awesome new livery will be making the journey halfway across the Pacific, but it will be a Boeing 737 doing the flying fun. Flights leave San Diego around 10am local time, and they arrive over in Hawaii at 12:30pm—local time once again.

· US Airways:
It’s time for residents of Charlotte—or those just connecting through CLT—to get out of town, as US Airways is sending some planes elsewhere. This week the carrier started flying nonstop between Charlotte and São Paulo. Just in case you’re keeping score—this is destination number two down in South America for US Airways. Boeing 767s will be the planes doing the heavy lifting, so hop aboard and hit the skies.

JetBlue, AeroMexico and Korean Air Add New Routes and New Cities

April 5, 2013 at 9:37 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· JetBlue:
The rumors have been kicking around for quite some time, but it now sounds like things are becoming a reality. JetBlue is arriving in Worcester, Massachusetts, and if all goes according to plan it’ll be a more convenient option for those that just don’t want to take the ride all the way out towards Boston. This is destination number 80 for JetBlue, and from Worcester they’ll head down to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando—those are in Florida—beginning on November 7.

The flights will head back and forth once daily each and every day of the week, so start thinking about asking for some time off from work. Tickets can be snagged for as little as $60 each way through April 10, so get that credit card ready to go.

· Alaska Airlines:
Things must be going pretty well for Alaska Airlines, as they’re getting ready to add some more flights across the country. Their option between Seattle and Boston is a hit, so now it looks like they’re getting ready to boost this service even more. Beginning on June 9 the carrier is starting up a third nonstop flight between the two cities. Things will run on a seasonal basis through around August 23, and after that it’ll just drop back to a couple times per day. Of course this could be a great addition for business travelers, but we’re thinking about the options for a long weekend in New England or the Pacific Northwest.

AeroMexico, Lufthansa and easyJet Start This Week's New Routes Party

October 26, 2012 at 9:26 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· AeroMexico:
You’ve had enough of the beach, and now you’re looking for something with a little European flair—we’ve all been there. Well thanks to AeroMexico that’s now possible, as the carrier is getting ready to fly between Mexico City and London-Heathrow.

Flights are scheduled to depart from Mexico on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, as the new flights are ready to start doing their thing on December 14. It sounds like this is nonstop option number three over to Europe from the folks at AeroMexico, and we’ve got to say that we are already looking for more—the more the merrier when it comes to new routes.

· Southwest Airlines:
As part of the overall merger between Southwest Airlines and AirTran there’s been all kinds of moving and shaking with Southwest’s routes. This week brings some new options and new changes, as they’re changing things up at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

AirTran will now be flying down to the Dominican Republic each and every day of the week beginning in April of next year, as long as the government is cool with their plans. As for Southwest it looks like they’re kicking the new route excitement into overdrive with their plans for Flint, Michigan. We kid because we love—the three daily nonstop flights between Flint and Baltimore will start on April 14.

It's Hawaiian Airlines, Volaris and Cape Air with New Routes This Week

June 22, 2012 at 9:32 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· Hawaiian Airlines:
It seems like Hawaiian Airlines is adding new routes at a pretty quick rate, and it’s not just between the islands and the mainland either. They’ve got plenty of international routes, and now it sounds like they’re ready to add one more. Hawaiian Airlines is sending some more planes down under, as the plan is to link Honolulu with Brisbane beginning on November 27.

The flights will do their thing three times per week in the fall, and all the flying fun will be aboard the carrier’s Boeing 767-300ERs. They’re actually the only airline based in the nifty fifty to offer nonstop service over to Brisbane, which is good news if you need to add a stop on your around-the-world itinerary.

· British Airways:
So this might not exactly be a new route announcement, as British Airways flies between Phoenix and London pretty darn regularly. However, the frequency of the route is getting a little bit of an upgrade. Just in time for the holiday season, the back and forth flights will become a daily option beginning in December.

Boeing 747s do the hefty lifting between the two cities, so there’s always a chance that you could sweet talk your way to the upper deck. Obviously visiting London this summer to check out the Olympics would be quite a score, but if not, it’s good to know there will be plenty of flights connecting these two cities after the games have run their course.

This Week's New Routes Star Air France, Aeromexico and More

March 9, 2012 at 10:45 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· Air France:
You know we’re suckers when it comes to the comings and goings of the Airbus A380, and that’s why we’re excited to hear about Air France and their latest plans for the big bird. Beginning on April 1—no joke here—the double-decker jumbo jet will be heading from Paris all the way over to Singapore.

Initially the thinking is that these planes will do their thing about three times per week, but depending on how many butts the airline can get in the seats it’s always subject to change. It seems like the Airbus A380 is now pretty much flying everywhere and anywhere, so it might just be a matter of time before it shows up at your favorite airport—well, maybe.

Emirates, AeroMexico and US Airways Lead the Way with New Routes

February 17, 2012 at 9:32 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· Spirit Airlines:
As much as we disagree with some of Spirit Airlines' policies and procedures, we have to admit that they’re pretty darn good at adding new routes. This week they’re bringing back Denver as one of their destinations, and the plan is to start flying to and from the Mile High City as soon as May. Nonstop flights will go to new spots including Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Las Vegas, and Fort Lauderdale. Of course—it goes without saying—just watch out for all those fees and figures before entering in those valuable credit card digits.

· Japan Airlines:
They haven’t even started flying their very first Boeing 787 Dreamliner yet, but Japan Airlines is already dreaming about where they’re heading next. It sounds like airline officials have made a decision, and the next 787 route is going to go back and forth between San Diego and Tokyo-Narita. If all goes according to plan the new flights will begin in December, and this will be the first time San Diego will enjoy a regularly scheduled nonstop flight over to Asia. Oh, and if you can’t wait for some 787 fun, just remember that Boston will be seeing the 787 thanks to JAL as soon as April.
