Delta proposes a nonstop flight between MSP and Shanghai

Delta proposes a nonstop flight between MSP and Shanghai

Delta Air Lines wants to fly nonstop from the Twin Cities to Shanghai and is seeking government approval to do so.

The airline submitted a request to the U.S. Department of Transportation to begin daily nonstop service from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in June 2020, Delta announced Monday.預訂機票

If approved, it would be the first nonstop route ever between Minnesota and mainland China, fulfilling Delta’s long-stated commitment to providing Minneapolis-St. Paul with a direct connection there.

Both the U.S. and China limit the number of new routes that can be added by carriers from the other nation. Some U.S. carriers are not currently using the flight privileges granted to them and Delta is asking federal regulators to transfer those rights to it.

Earlier this summer, American Airlines announced it would end nonstop service between Chicago and Beijing and between Chicago and Shanghai this month, citing the financial losses it was suffering on those routes. Hawaiian Airlines also suspended its Honolulu-Beijing route this month.

Delta currently operates nonstop service to Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport from its U.S. hubs in Seattle, Los Angeles, Detroit and its hometown, Atlanta.
The airline also must receive approval from the Chinese government. Delta has a close partnership with Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines, in which it owns a nearly 4 percent stake. Delta executives said that relationship will help build its case with Chinese authorities.

Transborder air travel has been liberalized by the creation of open skies agreements, which create an international policy framework meant to encourage free-market competition. The U.S. and China do not have an open skies agreement, however. Airline travel between the two nations is regulated by a treaty that, in part, limits the reach of U.S. airlines into China and vice versa.

“Any [new air service”> between the U.S. and China is a multistep process,” said Morgan Durrant, spokesman for Delta. “If we are successful, which we are highly confident we will be, we will get the route on the schedule and start selling tickets.”

The announcement comes just months after Delta unveiled plans for a nonstop flight between MSP and Seoul, South Korea, starting in April 2019. Delta also flies a daily nonstop between MSP and Tokyo’s Haneda airport. No other airlines fly nonstop to Asia from MSP.

“We are honored to be proposing the first-ever nonstop flight between Minneapolis-St. Paul and China as we continue to expand across the Pacific,” Ed Bastian, Delta’s chief executive, said in a statement.

Shanghai is the largest Asian market without nonstop service from MSP and the Minnesota business community has long campaigned for better direct access to it.

“Direct service to China would be a tremendous benefit to the Minnesota business and hospitality communities,” said Brian Ryks, chief executive of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, which operates MSP. “By seeking federal approval to fly the route, Delta is once again reaffirming its ongoing commitment to the Twin Cities and creating opportunities for people and businesses throughout the region.”

Air China cuts flights between San Jose and Shanghai

Air China cuts flights between San Jose and Shanghai

Air China has decided to slash flights between Mineta San Jose International Airport and Shanghai, a decision that comes despite the airport’s big increases in passenger activity.

The air carrier is preparing to halt service on the route after Sept. 25, according to the airline and airport officials.Xiamen flights

“Air China is discontinuing its San Jose-Shanghai nonstop flight effective Sept. 25, 2018, until further notice,” the air carrier stated.

The flights operated by Air China began in 2016.

“The reduced number of aircraft available arising from the maintenance of its Dreamliner fleet” was the primary reason Air China offered for its abrupt cancellation of the service.

Air China has been offering up to three flights a week between the South Bay and China, said Rosemary Barnes, a spokeswoman for Mineta San Jose International Airport.

“The airline notified us that they will discontinue this service for the foreseeable future,” Barnes said.Despite this sharp cutback in service, San Jose air travelers will still have access to flights between Silicon Valley and China.

“Hainan Airlines offers up to five weekly nonstop flights to Beijing,” Barnes said.

The Air China cutbacks occur at a time when air travel in Silicon Valley has been buoyed by a Bay Area and nationwide economic boom. In recent months and years, tech giants such as Google, Apple, Facebook, Adobe Systems and Amazon have carried out or prepared huge expansions in their operations, fueled by rising business demand and big increases in hiring.

As a result, passengers have flocked to San Jose airport.

During 2017, passenger traffic at San Jose increased 15.6 percent, marking five straight years of passenger growth. San Jose airport served 12.48 million departing and arriving passengers in 2017.

Aeromexico and Frontier began serving San Jose airport for the first time last year. New routes introduced by other air carriers include: Guadalajara, Morelia and Zacatecas in Mexico; Newark, New Jersey; Chicago-O’Hare; Austin, Texas; Reno; and the Southern California cities of Long Beach and Burbank.

“San Jose airport remains the fastest-growing airport in the nation,” San Jose’s Mayor Sam Liccardo said in a January release prepared for the announcement of rising passenger activity at the air travel hub.

Chinese Co-Pilot Partially Sucked Out of Plane in Sudden Depressurization Episode

Chinese Co-Pilot Partially Sucked Out of Plane in Sudden Depressurization Episode

In another terrifying episode of airline depressurization, a Chinese Sichuan Airlines co-pilot was partially sucked out of a plane on Monday after a part of the aircraft’s windshield blew out.Zhangjiajie to Shanghai flights

An Airbus A319 was cruising at 32,000 feet en route to Tibet when, according to Reuters, the windshield cracked with a deafening bang, the equipment failed, the pressure dropped, and the plane plummeted into a free fall.

“When I looked over to my side, half of my co-pilot’s body was hanging out of the window,” the pilot told Chinese media.

The co-pilot was being held in the plane by his seat belt, and the pilot, Liu Chuanjian, said he pulled the co-pilot back into the airplane. After a few seconds, the plane pulled out of the free fall but continued to lurch and shake, and the pilot made an emergency landing in the city of Chengdu.

The airline said that the co-pilot suffered only scratches and a sprained wrist. The passengers and crew members inside the cabin described a chaotic scene in which the meals the attendants were serving were thrown about and the stewardesses themselves were tossed into the air. Twenty-nine of the 119 people on board were sent to the hospital for examination, but none were injured, according to the New York Times. One crew member in the cabin was injured in the descent.
While these incidents of explosive depressurization are rare, they can often end with passengers or crew members being sucked out the plane. As Daniel Engber explained in Slate after a much less dramatic incident in 2005, these incidents occur when a plane is flying at a high altitude and the decompression happens very suddenly, usually from a large rupture to the plane’s window or body.

In April, a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight from New York to Dallas was partially sucked out of the plane after debris from a broken engine had blown out a window. Passengers were able to pull her back in, but she died from injuries she sustained to her head, neck, and torso.

Typical Applications of Unmanaged Ethernet Switches

Typical Applications of Unmanaged Ethernet Switches

Industrial Ethernet switches provide flexible installation, Wireless Network,space reliability and maintainability, which is indispensable for the factories to install and support thousands of Ethernet control devices. Compared with other network solutions, industrial Ethernet has the following advantages: flexible layout, high automation data capacity, high popularity, etc. Unmanaged Ethernet switch provides point-to=point connections with low installation cost to enable the formation of Ethernet networks.

The unmanaged Ethernet switch has the following application advantages:
1. High-performance Ethernet connection–fast response without unnecessary traffic.
2. Universal–it can easily combine with existing equipment and new equipment.
3. Low installation cost–it can be easily retrofitted and put into the junction box or control panel.
4. Easy Ethernet maintenance–plug and play without software configuration.

Typical application
1. OEN machinery and small manufacturing system connection;
2. Automobile and discrete component manufacturers;
3. Quality monitoring system;
4. Shipbuilding;
5. Low-cost expansion for Ethernet-based medium / large manufacturing processes;
6. Oil/gas;
7. Municipal infrastructure.

The standard function unmanaged Ethernet switch has four application categories:
1. SFNB (basic function ultra-thin)–used for Ethernet data interchange between the most basic 5 port and 8 port twisted pair (T ×) applications.
2. SF (standard function flat) and SFN (standard function ultra-thin)– 5, 8 and 16 port conventional industrial applications with additional performance and safety options.
3. SFNT (bandwidth standard function ultra-thin)–in addition to all functions of SFN, it also has the ability to adapt to harsh and outdoor environments with the function of remote monitoring;
4. SFN gigabyte–with all kinds of twisted pair and multimode single-mode optical fiber interfaces, it can meet the high-performance Gigabit application.



Automatic Protection Switches (APS) is a prominent requirement of every service provider’s optical infrastructure because it protects users from network outages and is the basis for delivering and satisfying Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Polatis simplifies and reduces APS switch times by localizing fault detection and switching at the physical/fiber layer. As an alternative, higher-level protocols can also command a Polatis switch to reconfigure in the event of non-fiber faults, or turn off automatic protection for maintenance operations. By operating at the physical layer, Polatis delivers faster switching times and a simple, straightforward implementation that can ease the transition between SONET and Ethernet-based schemes. And unlike SONET and Ethernet schemes, it can use dark fiber within the protection pool, thereby optimizing protection bandwidth and reducing overall system costs.

There are proven solutions available in implementing wavelength protection. These solutions typically introduce a duplicate of the working signal into a designated protection path and then a verification of working/protect signals is performed at the end point. While this solution is readily available its implementation has not been optimized. The Polatis 6000n-PSS offers an industry leading 16 Protection services in a 1 RU platform. Conventional solutions offer a single protection service solution in a card which then requires a shelf ranging in sizes from 2RU to 11RU. This not only requires additional space and power but also subtracts revenue generating slots from the service providers’ implementation.
Current 1+1 protection of critical 100G Router-to-Router traffic requires additional dedicated 100G transponders at each interface in the Network Cloud; while effective this is economically inefficient. The combination of Polatis 6000n-PSS edge protection with cloud mesh protection greatly reduces the number of 100G protection transponders needed in cloud. This architecture will protect against client-side transponder failures as well as fiber cuts in the client-to-cloud connection path. Savings will not only be realized through the reduction of capital expenditures (i.e. less transponders) but also operational expenditures (lower power consumption).

Oil & Gas (“oilfield”) and water process chemicals are specialty chemicals in the truest sense: no two applications are exactly alike, and formulations are often modified to fit a customer’s unique situation. The amount of contaminants and water content in oil & gas formations can vary considerably by location, and even from well to well within the same formation. The same is true of process water used in manufacturing: pH levels and mineral content can vary by geography and can interfere with the manufacturing process if not properly treated with the right product. For these reasons, chemical manufacturers working in these markets emphasize customer service, modifying their product offerings to meet a customer’s exact specifications. Sometimes a standard formula can be tweaked, but unique custom blends are also common. This situation is ideal for niche players, with both small manufacturers and even some distributors offering custom blends.

Even with the decline in oil prices over the past few years, these are attractive markets for chemical manufacturers, and both strategic buyers and private equity groups have been actively consolidating these markets. From a number of past projects and the high level of M&A activity in these markets, Grace Matthews has developed has special expertise in oilfield and water process chemicals. We have worked with large strategics on the buy-side projects, and represented sellers seeking to capitalize on the high values that can be achieved in these
