Boston was to be operated by Delta if that makes a difference?

Virgin just confirmed on Twitter that Las Vegas has indeed gone.

EMA has a lot of direct cargo flights from USA and mainland Europe, mainly through integrators and the likes of AeroLogic ( which I think is owned by DHL and Lufthansa ) , I was involved in some air cargo movements last week which arrived direct from CVG into EMA per Boeing 767, operated on behalf of DHL, but can't remember the actual carrier now.....and they were 20 tonnes paletised shipments, not parcels

It will have been either Amerijet, ABX Air or CargoJet. They have all been running double daily flights from CVG to EMA if that helps

Cathay appears to be bookable MAN-HKG from July 1st. Is this a definite "plan" or a leftover from the previous schedule? Maybe Spannersatcx has some news?

TURIN 19th May 2020 09:55

Saudia
 
Saudi 787 on its way and I hear another two are scheduled next week. Are these repat flights or just cargo?

As far as I know May/June cancelled, July would be dependent on what's happening in the UK I guess, they will be cancelled most likely at the end of May or beginning of June. Staff have been furloughed for May/June but not July as yet but as the scheme has been extended most likely July as well. I personally think August you may see something 🤞

A normally reliable source is stating that Kuwait are starting 3x weekly with 330s from early July. I’d like it to be true but am somewhat stunned anyone would be launching a new route in that timeframe!

could well be, Kuwait have been operating in sporadically over the last few months apparently

Only for recent repatriation flights as far as I recall

Finnair to resume Helsinki from (sometime) in July https://www.airlive.net/finnair-to-r...zcKetwweEl3dOg

Kuwait is a scheduled flight. Not just repatriation.

The previous 777 flights were repatriation; the flights from July are scheduled.

I've heard all the B744 are coming to MAN so that they can have engine swaps - original engines to original airframes - then off to the big yard in the desert.
Also I believe the A330s are then coming to us for storage.
Happy to be corrected if needs be.
