Couldn’t São Paulo be a scissor hub for lots of airlines? I would imagine there’s a ton of demand for São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Cuba, Bogotá, etc. Could airlines take advantage of this?

From a computer scientist perspective does anybody know what sort of algorithms or frameworks would be used to model the costings on this? Like, I'm envisioning something that could find the best assignments for an entire companies fleet of potentially hundreds (thousands) of planes given basically ALL the factors outlined here (interactions with subcontractors, cost for prolonged layovers, projected savings for maintenance in other countries), staff labour both ground and air, cost of airport slots, etc etc). Even MODELLING the problem space seems incredibly difficult, let alone solving it.

Good interesting info. What I don't get is how can a foreign airline like Qantas fly a domestic route between LA and New York? I thought foreign carriers can only fly in from international cities.

Nivaldo Covolan (23 days ago)
Interesting video. As I came from South America, I know per fact that airplanes from Sao Paulo to Dallas TX it really takes an 12 hours of wait time between plain arrives there to leave there again to Dallas TX . Doing maintenance there is a money saving.

Rolling hubs are hubs where the planes not sitting around for very long. 2:36 to 3:10 explains this more. Dallas Love Field is the rolling hub, while Dallas/Fort Worth is the banked hub. This is no real way how to define a small hub unless you are talking about an airline that has hubs out of two or more different airports.
Anya Leshchenko (29 days ago)
vangrails thanks a lot! And rolling hubs are basically small hubs?
vangrails (29 days ago)
There are rolling hubs and banked hubs. Bank can mean "a row of similar things, especially machines or parts of machines".

United wouldn't fly out of Reagan, I don't think. Dulles is the United hub. Also, Dulles is out in Loudon County, with one of the runways partially in Fairfax County, while Reagan is the one with the view of DC.

simple solution to south american flights: have the flight leave at 10am in new york, allowing early flights from the US to connect on, it would then arrive at 9pm in sao paulo (im assuming american airlines doesn’t have any flights to connect onto from sao paulo) then it can leave at midnight, arriving back at 9am in new york. There are problems with this, the plane wouldn’t be able to leave at 10am that day, but it could be used on a shorter route, while a second plane goes to sao paulo, so the planes can alternate days. I also realise that having a plane leave at midnight isn’t ideal, but is actually quite common place in south american routes, and could be easily changed.

worst bullshit of airlines is connections in Brazil. anything international pretty much has to go trough São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or Brasilia. yes, there is international flights from Recife, Fortaleza,Manaus,Porto Alegre and other cities. but my god it is hard to get into one without having to travel to these 3 major cities. makes no fucking sense to travel South if i want to go north (Example: From Recife to New York or more comonly... From Recife to Miami). Granted, there is a direct flight from Recife to Miami,but it only leaves on wednesdays past midnight. if it's an emergency, or you need to... i dunno travel on a thrusday to a tuesday, you have to go South to São Paulo or Rio, no excuses. wich adds 6 hours to the TOTAL flight time (3 to go from Recife to São Paulo and 3 to go Back from São Paulo to Recife, flying overhead, since all planes that leave Brazil from the Northeast at lest communicate with Recife, because of CINDACTA 3, the major air control of the northeastern region of Brazil). is not only counter-intuitive going south, to go north, but it wastes a TON of jet fuel. yes, São Paulo and Rio are more populous, yes, companies basically suck their dicks because most businessmen lives there, but it is counter-intuitive and Anti-Ecological. if i had to reorganize, i would put the international flights that need conection, to have the connection done at Recife (ideally it would be in João Pessoa since it is the easternmost part of Brazil, but Paraiba does not have an International Airport), Fortaleza, Boa Vista, Porto Alegre and Porto Velho. the planes that would connect, would need to always travel in the direction of the travel, never against it. so a Plane Leaving northbound from João Pessoa would connect with Fortaleza even tho Recife is nearest. another example: a Plane Leaving Goiania Southbound, would connect in Porto Alegre, Not in Brasilia,even tho it is nearest. for me, the passenger must ALWAYS move in the direction of the travel he wants to do, not the contrary. and if Global Warming is true we need to adopt this, urgent. (not that i believe it is.... let's be honest... it isn't. but even still, it is annoying to go the wrong way.)

I was recently on a flight, and it was DEAD ACCURATE on what time I would leave and arrive. I hear a lot of people and delayed flights and all but damn was I impressed. Using a car Im always late, but with an intercontinental flight everything was so perfectly timed.

Many airports (for example Heathrow) are over congested, therefore a bank system is hard to implement.

Well in Europe the only airlines that would connect passengers from Europe to Europe would ones with hubs in the centre of the continent, e.g Lufthansa, KLM, Czech Airlines

Miss Amanda's world (4 months ago)
This makes sense but Airbus from United from South Bend to Newark and return flight are hilarious. 6am leaves to Newark arrives roughly at 8. But return flights leave at 7 or 9pm and you may get randomly changed from 7pm to 9pm flight. There is only the one flight to Newark from South Bend using United. But it makes more sense then going to Chicago to go connect to New York from South Bend.

If you drive by the JFK service road at any point during the day after 8 am you'll see no less than 3-4 LAN and TAM 787s and 767s parked side by side on the ramp right off the road. I always wondered why they'd have so many planes just sitting around at a nonhub airport.
G-Man (3 months ago)
LAN and TAM have recently merged to form LATAM. Because the airline serves more than one South American country, you could have flights from Peru, Chile, Ecuador, and Brazil all sitting around for their evening take-off time.

How the hell can Qantas fly from their east coastal cities to the US with a 30-minute margin of arrival time? Sounds too optimistic since anything can happen. On such a long flight even a minor deviation in crosswinds or a storm can affect flight time so I would aim for a 60-90 minute margin instead.
Bwead (4 months ago)
Since Qantas can't sell tickets for flights originating from LAX, what happens is that some of the passengers get off at LAX whilst a few stay onboard to JFK for example. This happened on my flight with Turkish Airlines from IST to DUR via JNB. Essentially most of the passengers got of at JNB but a portion remained on the plane to DUR.
