      Alaska’s still right in the middle of most routes between Asia & North America, so Anchorage’s international terminal would still be a perfect place for airlines taking that path (& paying Russian elites that $100 per passenger overflight fee 😒) to layover.

        This is why any direct flights from Japan to Europe is more expensive than via the Middle East. Also this explains why many flight pass through Japan, instead of Russian sky, from China and Korea. ZIPAIR would be the first LCC passing Russian territory.

                  Just read in the news now, that Norwegian are considering buying Sukhoi Superjets 100, if a Siberia flyover permit is in the pot.

                                The question is how high does an airspace reach? Are there any limits? Beside the plane's limitation

                                    That moment when Wendover shows a place youve been. I worked in the international terminal at Ted Steven in Anchorage. The airport now specializes in cargo aircraft, with only limited pax flights.

                                                  As an air-traffic-controller, this video is full of bullshit. Any pilot or air traffic controller operating in Europe would tell you the same. Look up flightradar24 and see where most European air traffic flows to Asia go through. It’s not Siberia - it’s the Black Sea. They pass underneath Ukraine. Also, Russia is part of the governing body of ICAO - the international civil aviation organisation, and as such are bound by its rules and laws, including granting the aircraft of other nation states the right of passage through its airspace. Yet, as a sole sovereign of its airspace, like every other country on thr plabet, it has the sole right to decide who can and can’t. That, by the way, is one of the first rules of the Chicago Convention of 1944, which Russia DID SIGN AND RATIFY, despite what the video says. Last but not least, it does not have a policy of one airline per country. It simply provides better conditions to national flag carriers, like Lufthansa and British Airways, which have a higher status than low-cost European companies. Last but not least, if you compare Russian flight fares to fares in West Europe, they are much lower. But seeing as how every flight pays taxes to countries it passes through based on distance traveled, amount of fuel burned in the airspace and the weight of the aircraft, if you have to pass through Siberia, even if taxes are cheaper, naturally you would pay more, seeing as hoe you would travel 10 times the distance you would travel in Europe and burn 10 times the fuel, because Siberia is massive. Overall, all of the “facts” in this video are total bullshit and could be looked up with an internet connection and a half-hour Google search. Or just ask any pilot or air-traffic-controller. What a load of bullcrap....

I'm not just talking about taking money but closing their airspace for some airlines is even more ridiculous.

I'm cheap-I will take a budget airline to save a few $$, others can afford 1st class; why do so many people ignore the benefits of the free market?
