Regarding the EWR and ORD routes -- was there any hint that US will drop the "Schengen Ban" by mid-June? I suspect it wouldn't make much sense to operate these routes otherwise. Thanks!

Also curious if this implies the EU ban will be lifted by mid-June.

I have a ticket to TXL anyway after that date, so I guess this is fairly new news. I looked on their web site for txl and nothing.

Anyway, great to see the world reopens...

Aberdeen via stavanger, I guess if you want to go aberdeen from ARN you will have to go via copenhaven or perhaps a flight from ARN will appear.

Happy days.

So why plan those flights, then? LH and LX schedules have these as well.

What about the corollary - EU/Schengen countries' own entry restrictions? Are they expected to be extended again after 15 June or not? It seems that would impact traffic as well, obviously.

Thanks for the link — so much better than definitives based on personal beliefs :-).

Even though the US doesn't allow everyone, there is an extensive exemption in place. I.e. if you are US citizen, immediate family, LPR, or employee of a company in the US (E-1) you can still travel between the US and Europe even today. Plus the freight prices to/from US are super high right now which in itself will pay for the operation, pax revenue is just added bonus.

The real problem is the 14 day self quarantine upon arrival in the US (if you are coming from the EU). Granted that it is hard to enforce, but it limits many practical reasons for flying to the US right now unless you are returning home.
