Yeah, pretty misleading title. Hopefully when this goes into effect gate agents will enforce it.Jump to post
The United and China 747-400s, the Southwest 737-300s, the Allegiant 757-200..... Absolutely sad to see....... :cry: R.I.P Indeed very sad to see. Here are some more photos from today https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4565/37610527454_b622e8e468_k.jpg IMG_7421 https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4548/37610...Jump to post
Went to VCV earlier today and saw 4 UA 747s. Could only take photos of two, N180UA and N174UA. Kind of sad to see them just sitting there after serving so well. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4586/38292852462_a9bef15b6a_z.jpg IMG_7439 https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4567/38292858622_eaf9dbb14d_z.jpg ...Jump to post
It is also interesting to compare safety in the US to the rest of the world bearing in mind the 1500 hour rule. So far there is no evidence that it makes aviation any safer in the US with that rule in place compared to for instance Europe where you can have a couple of hundred of hours only and fly ...Jump to post

Is it UA1771 on 12DEC you are trying to purchase a ticket on? See the same price UA charge for on Expedia and Orbitz. Just use them instead of directly from United.Jump to post
If you have a problem booking it through United.com, just try doing it through a OTA such as Kayak, Orbitz, Priceline, Expedia etc.Jump to post
Have an upcoming flight with AA from LAX and just received an email from them regarding catering onboard. Apparently there wont be any catering at all on the flight, and has been so since yesterday, November 1 on flights departing LAX. Seems to be some problem with Gate Gourmet at LAX where listeria...Jump to post

Anyway, why does NZ route their AKL-LHR flights via LAX when they could fly 500 miles less by going through NRT? I mean, the demand is there and you don't have to apply for the US transit visa. Because of the great demand between LHR-LAX and that they can tap into this market. Demand is also higher...Jump to post
A week or two ago UA sold Y tickets on LAX-SIN-LAX nonstop for $380 including taxes. The fare was available for dates up to the middle of December. Still available for next week, and the week after. Check google flights. Great way to get some PQMs. I'll be doing it next weekend with a one day layov...Jump to post
Wow, another 11 787s next year. Looking forward to another round of expansion. So far everything has been TATL between EU-US, except BKK (from ARN, OSL, CPH), SIN (from LGW) and EZE (from LGW). While the EU-US market is strong now, it is kind of risky to only focus on it. Hope to see more Asia/South...Jump to post
Getting the pop-corn out... I'm waiting for all the naysayers to connect and start spitting their venom at Norwegian... :-) Same here! Anyway, I am happy to see DY making a profit. They have really changed the way people fly TATL. No more expensive one way tickets, or required Saturday night stay f...Jump to post
That is nothing. I have had a whole TG 77W for myself between HKT-BKK. Guess I should have contacted a newspaper... From this thread you can read how I ended up in a empty 77W: http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=704631 Yesterday I had a quick, 1 hour same plane turn at HKT flying...Jump to post
BA's FF program works best for me. Have been BA Silver (OW Sapphire) the past 3 years. It honestly feels sometimes too easy to reach Silver status with BA bearing in mind the benefits, such as lounge access, extra bag allowance, priority check in/boarding/security. It also gives free MCE with AA and...Jump to post
A lot of members seems to emphasize the importance to be the 1st TATL carrier at a city. I dont really get what kind of advantage that brings, as another carrier can enter the same market and just offer lower fares. That would swing over the pax from EI to the new entrant, as I doubt those pax would...Jump to post
Well, welcome to my no-fly list SY. I get that there's a push to become more and more a ULCC in order to remain competitive, but you could've done something to go against the current NK/G4/F9 race to the bottom...like not charging pax to load their own bags onto the plane, and instead, actually enf...Jump to post
According to Icelandic media, airberlin has canceled all flights to Keflavik since the grounding of its aircraft at KEF. Hence the press release by Isavia stating that its actions are limited to the aircraft in question - as apparently a fair number of Icelanders booked on those flights are now stu...Jump to post
Anyone know how UIA is doing financially?Jump to post
As much as I hate to say it, if price is similar, and it's economy, I'd also take BA over NZ. An A380 is (IMO of course) much more comfortable than a 10 abreast 77W. Not sure what VS are using on this route these days - when I last did it, it was the A346, which was pretty good. I think it's a 789 ...Jump to post

What is the start date for their scheduled ONT service? So far in all their press releases they only mention spring 2018.Jump to post
Very interesting way to look at things. Thanks for sharing, Southwest is absolutely number one in CA, especially with all the flights between the Bay Area (SFO, OAK and to some extend SJC) and LA (LAX, BUR, ONT, SNA, LGB). However, they still have many CA targeted offers as they want to fend off the...Jump to post

I hear that American Airlines plans to retire their Airbus A330-300 fleet by the end of the decade, around 2019 Try next year, as in, a few months from now. The E190s will be retired in 2019. If the A333 is being retired in a few months then why does AA still have it in their schedule over the summ...Jump to post
Nope nothing is free. Flew SFO-KEF-LAX with them back in April for $260. For that price I cant really complain. Ate before boarding and filled up the empty bottle I brought with me through security. Flights were on time and went by quickly. I was just amazed over how cheap air travel can be.Jump to post

As stated in previous thread it's a temporary reduction for few months while also an upgauge of capacity going from 77L to 77W. Yeah, glossed over that. Can the 77W make AUH-LAX nonstop?
