I recently came across the fact that Etihad is ending it’s San Francisco (SFO) to Abu Dhabi (AUH) service. It started in 2014 with 1 daily flight than they downgraded it to 3 times a week. Now, there trashing the route! The reason is the travel ban, On the way back from Abu Dhabi the Travel Ban applies but from Delhi there is no travel ban. This also applies to other routes, Air India is looking to expand to DFW but they don’t have many partners there yet they’ll still do well because of the Travel Ban. I hope these new profits will make Air India improve on their Long Haul Product and make their Business Class Product a 1-2-1 Layout and Lie flat.
