You do realize the low wait time is only momentary until everyone is forced to use biometrics. Remember the VIP lines? You give up so much of your freedom for temporary convenience.

5:07 are you sure that the plane does not go from Hong Kong to Singapore then back to Hong Kong in those 9 hours or maybe it goes from Hong Kong to Singapore and then the plane waits and then the plane flies again to Abu dhabi

I don't like the logic that Chicago, DFW, and Phoenix are THE important connection airports. Houston, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Detroit are also big hubs that thousands of people fly through every day.

Just come from Europe and OMG checkpoints are so long and I have no problem going through all the checkpoint because it's for our safety but what's good about it when Democrats demand open borders? We would travel more often around the world especially to Europe if their prices are cheaper than $1000!

A “banked” hub or “wave” system places you at the mercy of the wankers who run ATC and airports. As a hub or operator gets more successful the likelihood of you being screwed over by incompetence, stupidity or greed increases. The problem starts at the beginning of the day when the first inbounds suffer a delay. If you are on that flight or one that will be flown by the delayed aircraft later in the day you are screwed. So do yourself a favour. Either stay where things are best ie. at home or if you really, really, really have to travel go by rail, walk, drive or cycle. Only fly when you want to be late, lose your cool to stress or waste your life.

Remember Neda (2 months ago)
So with Global Warming projections of 5 feet of sea level rise by 2100, major hub airport like Miami, FL international airport which has an elevation of 7 feet above sea level could be in jeopardy of flooding, certainly during King Tides or Hurricane storm events. So AA using MIA as is Latin America hub airport might want to start looking for a new hub. I wonder if Jose Marti International, Havana Cuba at elevation 210 Feet Above Sea Level would be a good option with some facility and runway improvements. It is close to Miami, so distances are comparable. Labor Costs are probably lower. Then there is the Politico....issues. How to work on the Relations between USA and communist Cuba?
Remember Neda (2 months ago)
Maybe the USA could offer the Cuban Government a deal of sorts>We will give Cuba the Island of Puerto Rico. And Cuba will give the USA the Island of Cuba. So the physical islands will retain their names and peoples and Spanish language of course, but the government will change. And from the looks of things, nothing much there too will change either. So the Communists can go to Puerto Rico, and the official status of being a US Territory will be conferred to Cuba.
Andre Newcomb (2 months ago)
Amazing how American politics talks about American exceptionalism. Watching these videos, I see that prosperity approaches global. And I'M one of those making the sacrifice of 'world peace through sharing'. The jobs and wealth appears to be for someone else and I'll just gladly enjoy their good times.

I have Clear and Pre. For the amount of air travel I do, it's worth the money. It used to be that Clear would get you right up to the x-ray belt and the body scanner. Now it simply skips the line up to the first TSA agent. Still worth it. :-)
Toasty Hoodie (3 months ago)
Am I the odd man out? I don’t mind long connections. I don’t have to run, and can plane spot, get food, etc. definitely prefer them.
Hiroku S (3 months ago)
Nice video, but I have to disagree with you on Clear - you only go ahead of a few people, most of the time that line is fairly short anyway. Unlike Global Entry, which is cheaper, it does not allow you to go through the TSA Pre line. To add insult to injury they charge $179 a year whereas Global Entry is $100 for 5 years. I get it that they are sponsoring your video but Clear is a massive ripoff.

When I’ve flown to Japan, the scheduling out of Dulles was more or less the same between UA and ANA, but the flights back to Dulles were obviously scheduled based on the fact that Narita was ANA’s hub (and not so much UA’s anymore), and Dulles was UA’s. ANA’s return flight arrived in the mid-morning, with my mom navigating rush hour traffic to grab me. But if I had taken UA’s flight back, we’d be stuck in the evening rush... but connecting passengers going to Florida or whatever wouldn’t care.

I didn't know about WestJet's St. John's connections, that's really neat! I've flown Ottawa-London before and it was a direct flight, and it was sooo long to be on a plane. If I ever go to the UK again/Ireland, I just might stop in St. John's for a day or two in between since I haven't been to the east coast since I was a kid.

How can qantas fly from LAX to JFK. Ant that against the law being that it's a international airline. Air china has to come from PEK to IAH and then to PTY and go back to IAH and then go back to PEK. Because that's what the laws say. It makes sense.
Dean L (6 months ago)
E1craZ4life Yes, I know. I’m just explaining the technical details behind it.
E1craZ4life (6 months ago)
@Dean L The Second and Fifth Freedoms of the Air are what make those flights possible.
Dean L (7 months ago)
Jr Woodson Qantas has the right to fly between LAX AND JFK, but only if the passenger is going on the sector between Australia and the US, to go on the sector between LAX and JFK, technically still an international flight. For example, if I want to go from SYD to JFK, I could take the Qantas flight to LAX and connect onto JFK on the same flight, but they are not allowed to carry passengers domestically solely between JFK and LAX, being an international airline. There is a similar flight in Australia, where Singapore Airlines flies from SIN to SYD, to CBR (Canberra) and to SIN again. They are not allowed to fly passengers solely between SYD and CBR, but if they are connecting onto Singapore, they can connect in Canberra. Qatar Airways has another similar flight, DOH to SYD, SYD to CBR, CBR to DOH. Passengers are only allowed on the SYD to CBR sector if they are going onto Doha. I don’t know much about the Air China flight, but I’m sure some of these principles apply to that flight as well.

I was intrigued by the title of this video because I work for SWA. Thank you for doing your research! You hit everything exactly right! This was by far the best and truest look at the airline business and not only how we operate the way that we do, but why! People very rarely understand that, and from someone on the front lines with passengers......Thank You!!!!!! I’ll be looking forward to more videos! ✈️✈️✈️

7:42 that's a lot more than six routes. You have six routes for end to end passengers (Toronto to Dublin, Toronto to London, Ottawa to Dublin, Ottawa to London, Orlando to Dublin, and Orlando to London). Then you have passengers who are only going to St. John's (Toronto to St. John's, Ottawa to St. John's, and Orlando to St. John's). Lastly you have passengers who boarded in St. John's going to Europe (St. John's to Dublin, and St. John's to London). That's 11 routes, not 6.
jk484 (8 months ago)
You missed mentioning the best part of the Qantas LA-NYC flight--it's a foreign airline operating within the US between two domestic points, essentially an rare 8th Aviation Freedom flight. I believe however that they are unable to sell tickets to passengers who are only getting on or off the plane at LAX--they need to be continuing on to Australia.

Emirates has alot of flights to Australia and New Zealand, they have some New Zealand flight stop over in some Australian cities. Emirates once used to have a Dubai-Brisbane-Auckland-Brisbane-Dubai route. But now Emirates has cut the Auckland leg of the flight, they replaced it with a direct flight to Auckland. Meanwhile Emirates only finishes and starts the Dubai-Brisbane-Dubai flight. The thing is that Dubai leaves the A380 aircraft that operates that Brisbane route, sitting at Brisbane from 6am to 9pmish. Pretty crazy how long it sits especially considering the aircraft being the world's largest passenger plane.
