Re: What's Going In CLE - 2018

They were originally going to use 752s from Jan 2 until April but they downgraded them...well there goes our chance to see one their 3 AMAZING special liveries in CLE... It seems like those scheduled 757's were placeholders much like when service was initially announced. Once Max 8's were delivered...

Re: Video of Hawaiian Employee Chucking Bags Posted on Twitter

Who carries a full-size laptop? Well not me, I carry two ;) I think the main problem here is the design of the work environment. The ramper has to turn 180 degrees to drop the bag, which is among the worst ergonomic moves you can do. The slide construction invites her to drop them. Putting them on ...
