What Is a Route That You are Surprised is Flown Out of Your Home Airport?

What flights are you surprised are flown out of your home airport (or any airport really)?

For me I am surprised that Qatar Airways fly their A359 to and from Doha into my home airport of PHL. I’m sure that there is a pretty big market from Philly to the Middle East, but considering that we’re only a few hours driving from New York and DC. I’m surprised that this is a profitable route for Qatar.

Just the other day an A350 from Lufthansa landed in Belgrade! A very rare sight! This was the 2nd time an A350 has ever came to my hometown. Sadly was not able to see it irl but on FR24.

For a little while it was Norwegian Airlines. They were flying direct to Ireland and other Europe destinations daily from Stewart International here in Orange County NY. The flights were as little as $80 sometimes! They advertised constantly $90 flights.

Well, nothing, really. Since DFW is AA’s main hub, no routes surprise me.

For me, it would be DE2091, KPDX to EDDF. Was rather surprised when I first found out about this route.


Condor uses their 767 on this route.

Definitely the Qatar A350, and the BA 787, and fortunately I live right under the usual approach they use for 06, but unfortunately, Durban has bipolar weather, for example, it’ll be super hot, but very cloudy, or, like right now, scorching hot and suddenly stormy.

We had a Koeran Air 777 Stop by once cuz of a bomb threat

Was it an emergency landing?

Nope, it was because of a football match between Bayern Munich and Red Star I think.
