Aviation industry often witnesses wars and rat races between
different airlines trying to outdo each other in service and popularity.
While the airspace is an open venue to unique and interesting battles,
let as look at the airlines that are trying to beat each other in route
The mighty commercial carrier of the United Kingdom is one airline that
intends to expand its network rapidly. The airline threw a pleasant
surprise for Austin residents by announcing the launch of London-Austin
route in March 2014. It plans to operate Boeing 787 Dreamliner between
these cities. This will be the carrier’s first trans-Atlantic flight to
the Texan capital.
The big commercial carrier of the United States is taking a giant leap
yet again. The airline that has been penetrating into other destinations
to widen its network announced the launch of a new route between
Chicago and Saskatoon and Washington Dulles and Quebec City.
China based Hainan Airlines recently commenced service between Chicago
and Beijing. The flights between these two cities operate twice a week
using Airbus A340 aircrafts. However, the airline intends to double its
frequency from November using Boeing 787 Dreamliners. It expects to run a
daily service on the route beginning June 2014.
The airline launched nonstop service between Seattle and Portland,
Oregon. The carrier will use the services of Boeing 737-800s to operate
flights on this route.
