Yeah, your only option is that Ameristar VIP 737 or one of the two VIP 737-400's. OR you could do an Elite Airways CRJ-200 and every person gets two seats. This would also require a fuel stop. The Ameristar 737 would almost definitely also require a fuel stop and the 737-400's would possibly require...Jump to post
And Commutair has it to UA and Endeavor and with DL.
This is however, the first flow-through in the US that I'm aware of that involves airlines that don't have any other relationship (other than both Trans States and Frontier have a DEN crew base).
On the back of a flatbed truck owned and operated by a road freight company.
Basically the same way any other company would move medium sized equipment around the country.
To add some hard facts, here are these timetables: In December 1992, the only non-hub routes from ORD were NRT (on the 747-200) and BOS (on an MD-80). The routing of NW5/6 was BOS-ORD-NRT-MNL. http://www.departedflights.com/NW121592p17.html This September 1987 timetable shows 2x service to BOS on DC...Jump to post
UA and B6 also operate very early morning arrivals that turn right around and head back to the mainland. I think the current difficulty in RONing crews there but wanting to continue to offer capacity is resulting in these overnight flights with a turn in the middle of the night.Jump to post
Never a real hub. They held a number of trans-con authorities from ORD during the CAB. After that they held the rights to fly Chicago-Tokyo. They fed it with a few additional flights from a few major markets. However, after the Republic merger they refocused on their hubs at DTW, MSP, and MEM and Ai...Jump to post
Rescue aircraft ferried in from Miami this morning and is leaving with its first load of repatriates to BRO shortly - https://flightaware.com/live/flight/WAL ... /KMIA/KAEXJump to post
Having that aircraft out of service will definitely put a crimp into their operation. Luckily most of the passengers aren't in any hurry to get where they're going.Jump to post
The last scheduled pax 742 flight was SPN-NRT I believe. All of the last NW 742s in scheduled pax service operated NRT-GUM/HNL/SPN. The last -200 pax flight overall was indeed a military charter and occurred at about the same time as the last 742 dedicated freighter flight, allowing NW/DL to finally...Jump to post
If someone else is paying for me to sit in the premium cabin? EK probably.

For LH Group, what about going from ZRH or BRU? How are those bilaterals? The SN product might actually be the most appropriate for this route but I don't think the A332 has the legs for it, right?Jump to post
This really became necessary when B6 and Silver started codesharing.
Other than that, there really aren't that many interline transfers that require going between T3/4 and T1 or 2.
OO already holds the EAS contracts for IMT and ESC and operates them under the DL code. I don't see any compelling reason why they'd change them over to the UA code. ESC has strong links to the Detroit area. Switching to the UA code would prohibit IMT from realistically having multi-hub EAS service ...Jump to post

possible UAX adds at ORD would be: TOL, DBQ, MQT, BMI, TRI, MHK, YXU (resumption) or YKF. Those are pretty slim pickings. Everything else within 800 miles is either EAS or have very entrenched other carriers and and are far away (DHN, VLD, SBY, LYH, OAJ, ABY, AGS, FAY, EWN, FLO) or are much better s...Jump to post

Their current color scheme is better, but that might age well.
Yes, the 5th A340 is just rotated as a spare. An A340 is sitting at PPT at all times unless the spare needs to go rescue a flight when an aircraft goes out of service at an outstation. The spare obviously also allows the operation to recover faster if there's a long delayJump to post
You CAN make money flying RJ's standalone, but a few things must happen. 1. You have to earn good RASM. You can't go head to head with someone flying mainline and matching your fares. 2. You have to keep the stage lengths short-ish (probably nothing over 1000 nm). 3. You have to keep your load facto...Jump to post
My mom was a travel agent in the Detroit Area in the 70's through the late 90's. In 1993 we flew a Key Tours L1011 on a charter operated by ATA to LAS. There was a 727 also operated by ATA that operated just 30 minutes after (and turned from MBJ at DTW - I think the routing was MBJ-DTW-LAS-DTW-MBJ)....Jump to post
Sometimes people add weird stuff though. At one point someone had changed the table for the airport in Corn Island, Nicaragua to supposedly have service from about a dozen destinations in the US and Canada (which it obviously doesn't).Jump to post

This will really hurt ADI. I don't see them finding a code that they can sell on where the interline would be honored (for example I doubt if they started selling their tickets using 3M's I don't think that would help unless Silver started their own flights out of DEN (and UA was dodgy about interli...Jump to post
I think the solution would be require Swiftair SA to use either "Swiftair SA" or "Swiftair Spain" or "Swiftair Espana" in all communications in the US to differentiate the two.Jump to post
My experience with them was that when I was little my dad flew them on DTW-TVC. I had never heard of them before, but I liked their logo.

Honestly, people with undergrad degrees from EMU or U of M Dearborn pretty much don't get into MIT-Sloan MBA (unless they have some insane accomplishments).

To be completely honest, your degree type and where it is from doesn't play a very big part in landing a job like this.

I've met many of them. Here are some things that I think that a lot of people who dream of being one would like to know. 1. It's not as glamorous or interesting as most people imagine.

Yes, basically NW's gate holdings in E were large enough to accommodate the entire operation, while DL had leased off a bunch of their gates on L to AA and AA didn't want to give them back, so they couldn't have consolidated in L until those leases were up.Jump to post
