– Qatar Airways has is launching new routes to Cardiff, UK (on an excellent Qatar 787 (Review) aircraft) and Adana, Turkey on a rather ok narrow-body aircraft
– Cathay has decided to end Dusseldorf service – the Air Berlin drama is certainly a big reason for it
– Ethiopian Airlines and United have fares under $700 from Los Angeles, San Francisco to Eastern Africa for many dates
These fares only come up using ITA Matrix and then searching multi-segment via cheapoair.com. It’s not as great an offer as recent fare wars to Australia or the (now standard) $499 to South East Asia but still it is much cheaper than I have ever seen.

– Norwegian and Easyjet have launched a common platform to connect passengers at London Gatwick
You will still be required to collect your bag and re-check it but hey everyone has to do that when arriving in the US. Easyjet will also protect you against misconnects now. So far you would have to either leave enough time or use a ‘misconnect insurance’
– Air Asia has another ‘Big Sale’ promotion with a lot of $4 fares
While those are great fares I find Air Asia so affordable that I do not change my travel plans because of their sales.
