    When did the ATL-LOS go daily? I thought when they switched to the 777 they reduced to 6x weekly. With VK in trouble and probably reducing their regional service, will MEA beat Arik to the punch on the LOS-Abidjan service?

    • nigerianaviation says :

      Currently, Delta operates five flights indeed. But earlier they announced a daily service for the summer, but reduced the number of flights again.

      United will probably postpone its IAD-ACC-LOS service, as the airline is still awaiting approval from the Nigerian authorities.

    Is it true that Arik air will start to provide direct flights from lagos to Beirut? adn if its true when will it be starting?
