As a 41 year resident of the San Francisco Bay Area I was interested in your post about SFO. However, your statement that SFO is “one of the best airports in the United States” is laughable. It is simply one of the worst—just above Newark. You are right that it has lots of airlines and lots of dest...Jump to post
FWIW, AA I think still holds the single fatality record, ORD, Flight 191, 1979, 271pax +2 on the ground.Jump to post

Looks to be more press sensationalism than fact in some cases. Looking at sat, Jun 9 from Oak to both Hnl & Ogg, there seem to be plenty of unassigned seats on the 330 to Hnl & 767 to Ogg. LIH pax can be routed via either connx. Good press for keeping the $$ jacked up. So what if they have t...Jump to post

If one considers what DL, NWA & WA had premerger(s) to Hawaii, DL has receded in the market while giving some of the market to HA/AS/VX and soon to be WN. The SF Bay Area has virtually been eliminated from the Hawaii market by Delta except for the 10day 739 SFO-HNL-SFO evening roundtrip during t...Jump to post
Combined they pale in comparison to BMW's most profitable facility (Spartanburg) and all of their tier suppliers in the region.

, Prior management in the 90's had totally ignored those areas....too busy reeling from the acquisition of those PA routes that have since evaporated except for JNB & LOS. Huh?

As a DL Retiree, I think that DL's west coast strategy is still lacking when it comes to connecting the top business markets, notably Chicago & DFW to the top markets in the West...(SEA & LAX aren't the only ones). DEN to Silicon Valley? Must not be lucrative.. Before, DL had to buy the comp...Jump to post
We still have trouble closing them and they are not safe for us from an ergonomics point of view. The 319/320 used to be our favorite plane, but after the mods it goes pretty junior now. But when you don't have a contract you have no say in your career or any input on design of galleys etc. All abo...Jump to post
UA has many narrowbody flights to Mexico in the international terminal. These often turn to domestic destinations after arrival from Mexico. There are also often widebody domestic turn flights. Not uncommon at all to arrive/depart from the international terminal on UA when flying domestically. As m...Jump to post
After trying nonrev HNL-SEA-SFO just to try something different, We'll stick to transfer @ LAX or fly HA. SEA is crowded & dingy and makes both LAX & SFO look elegant. I still can't believe that after all the years that DL/WA/NW flew SFO-HNL, that DL has completely dropped the service except...Jump to post

They should absolutely be allowed. As long as they comply with all U.S. rules and regulations I really don't care who owns them. Of course competition means legacy carriers cannot get away with treating their customers like crap. Competition is good for consumers and will hopefully weed out the poo...Jump to post
Ok, ATL is one of the largest O&D airports in the country. It does not even belong in the same sentence as SLC and CLT despite your constant attempts to slight it. Every hub is over served (EVERY SINGLE ONE), but get real man.[/quote] ATL has no nearby cities with sufficient air service for comp...Jump to post
0144520 They used to! I don't recall exactly why they stopped service, but I assume the AA LHR service has it covered for now.

Thanks for finding all these aerial photos V/F! So cool to see how SFO has grown and where it started from. In the second and third photos down, at the top of the frame, there is a train bridge going across the Bay. I'm assuming that became the ROW for the San Mateo Bridge. Does anyone know when th...Jump to post
Why should pilots get a say in how the airline inks JV's? The management is doing it for the benefit of the airline. And airmailing the pilot's jobs overseas. The pilots gave up every concession the airline asked for when it was bankrupt. Outside of 'profit sharing', they haven't received anything ...Jump to post

@ CV880: at 1973 there was nothing like a Delta DC10. Sorry for nitpicking Maybe You should research what You say first. I worked there, I think that I know what Delta used to fly into there.

Slowdown in the tech economy?
Anyway, DL dropped the ball with the 739 and responded by putting the mid cabin lav back on the A321. I've never been on their 739 and never hope to go in it.
It is surprising no one served TXL-SFO. Berlin is becoming a leading tech and start-up hub in Europe (likely to become the largest). Also there are obvious similarities between Berlin and San Francisco. Both are very hipster cities that in a way sell a similar lifestyle. S&M Capitals of the Pla...Jump to post
Isn't BMW the primary driver of demand up front ? If I'm not mistaking there's a large factory a few hours drive from CLT and there's a lot of traffic back and forth. The rest is really just filling up the plane with connections. Yes BMW has a plant in Spartanburg County , South Carolina where they...Jump to post
[quote="hOMSaR"] Hawaiian's 717 fleet is about 1/3 of their total fleet. There isn't enough "down time" in the rest of their fleet to replace that flying. They still need a small plane that can do a bunch of short hops and quick turns. Using A321s (or whatever type) in between lo...Jump to post
Beginning Sat, Oct29, it appears that Delta will replace the domestic configured 763's from SLC & MSP to HNL with the A-333. As the arrival times on the 3 long range 333's from ATL/MSP/SLC are mid afternoon arrivals into HNL, the times will allow for equipment rotations on the return flights. Th...Jump to post
When & if HA needs a 717 replacement, it needs to be a like capacity aircraft. During peak times the flights run multiple times per hour in the HNL-OGG/LIH markets. They also need to look at possible competitor intrusion into these markets if the demand is high. DL/AA both used to "tag on&q...Jump to post
