Ah well those are good signs: Expertflyer shows it all zero'd out with a US point of sale, but UK point of sale looks normal. Fares price on the US version of BA.com as well, so hopefully just a...

Not officially cancelled, but looks like LHR-IAD inventory is zeroed out at least through early April: seems cancellations are likely to come soon.

Does anyone have information on whether or not JMK/JTR to TLV will return? It operated for a few years, but I don't currently see it on the schedule at all for next summer (so far). In years past it...

What's the route and your BA status? 1A and 1K are usually blocked for status holders, so may well be available but you won't be able to book that as a seat reservation ahead of time. The flight is...

I think lots of changes have been made into the summer. I had an August 2021 LHR-IAD shift from a 350 to a 789. And Avios upgrade to First done :).

Sadly, it appears that this hotel is no longer listed on the Marriott Design Hotels directory and no longer available through Bonvoy (unless I'm missing something). Really too bad :(.

BA has a strangle-hold on LHR. As long as they maintain this, its money in the bank.

That looks like an aerial shot of the Baha'i Lotus Temple in Delhi in the center-left of the picture. UA already serves DEL from both SFO and EWR. But that seems like a really clear indication of an...

There's nothing else in the video that suggests India or Ireland... Abidjan would be interesting. No US carriers serve the airport, but it is linked to JFK by Ethiopian Airlines.

Cherry blossoms are also associated pretty strongly with Washington DC. The passport stamp next to the blossoms shows 'South Africa' and there is also a map of Africa right there. Perhaps they are...

The black passport stamp on image 28 (bottom left) says 'South Africa'.

Image 22 shows EWR with a 234. 234 is the country code for Nigeria: Abuja or Lagos? (Delta already flies to the latter from...

Image 18 shows both a Hawaiian lei and the number 4903. Great circle route mapper distance from EWR-OGG is 4903 (I saw that mentioned in the comments on a blog). I think EWR-OGG is a given.

I would guess a number of these routes won't be slated to start for months, and in some cases until mid-2021.

Africa seems to figure in the video. As mentioned, I could see Dakar DSS getting...

I agree. If your travel patterns see you hitting Platinum anyway over the next few years - and to be honest its not that high.a bar to hit - I'd let it happen naturally and drop the $10K+ on...

RJ really doesn't have a particularly good network into Asia, however. There's a good number of Israelis on their AMM-BKK flight (and the TLV legs are timed well to meet these), but isn't their route...

TLV seems to do fairly well on its own, so I'm not sure a tag flight makes sense (not to mention possible air rights issues, security etc).

Now that F will be restricted to eight seats on all but the 388, perhaps BA are moving to limit the maximum available that are displayed to six - essentially giving competitors less of a clear view...

If this would apply to New York only, I imagine it'd be the state and not the city. Simply requiring a NY State driver's license would go a long way to prevent travellers from doing a 'Dublin...

This will also likely affect the seasonal third daily TLV service. Most likely to just get cut next summer, but beyond that BA will lose some flexibility. In 2018, the third service operated as a 777...

There's a few things written in the Roman alphabet that aren't standard at all... I think Israel Railways spells Herzliya three or four different ways :).

Any chance anyone who has been here knows whether or not there will be a pool at the Revive complex near the beach, or will that only be at Retreat (ie, the main pool in the pictures). Thanks!

The early LHR-IAD in early December is still listed as a 744, but earlier today F capacity was cut to 8. BA also released two F awards, so I processed an UUA.

Looks like a 789, 781 or 777 Club...
