They are heavily used by the locals. Every time I have flown them the FAs know many of the passengers by name. I do miss their Dash 8s and think the changing of AC type (2 changes) had to impact their books. I really enjoy their service, but those increased costs and the adding of Ohana had to have ...Jump to post
ACMI likely is more expensive than the total revenue they collect for their flights. Just my guess. Its probably cheaper to cancel flights and pay the fines I saw in an article yesterday than to charter and ACMI which has the airline operating the ACMI's margin in there. Remember the hourly cost of ...Jump to post
The selling of the tickets are sold as a Part 380 Operator. It is governed by the DOT and not the FAA as the FAA has authority over the carrier you contract out for flights. Complete details can be found on the USDOT site under Part 380. They are right, as there are very specific rules you have to f...Jump to post

It appears to be Aramco Services (part of Saudi Aramco). Nice fleet if that is the case.

Anyone know who the new carrier they are announcing for ATW is? News said Southwest or Spirit is their speculation, and I think they are wrong as Southwest wont get 6 full planes a day out of there (I think their min requirment for a new city) and NK seems to be focusing on larger city pairs.

any FR pair where one of the cities is a secondary airport = 737-800
up until last month AMS-SXM = 747
As far as plane type the NFL requires at least a 76 so all Delta NFL charters are either a 767, 777 or A330 Unless this is a recent requirement I don't think its true. The Steelers rarely take a widebody, typically they use a 757 or A321. I don't think you are correct. Is there a way we can lookup ...Jump to post
For all Packer games teams fly into ATW because the teams stay in the Radisson in downtown Appleton. Then on game day they fly out of GRB which is only 5 minutes from Lambeau.

I feel like I should know the answer to this question, but I dont. If a plane is being moved from a stand, or a hanger, to a gate and there is no crew (tug is hooking up and going) is there someone in the cockpit or can the tug access the motion beacon controls from the ground without having to go i...Jump to post
Flair Air just needs to subsidize flights until oil turns around. I used to fly on their planes within the Shell and other networks out of Calgary, which I assume is their normal revenue stream.Jump to post
It is a great presentation.
It is unfortunate that the cost of oil is down, as investors in cities like Fort St. John, Fort McMurray, Peace River may have an interest in this concept. There are reasons why Shell and others have full service terminals at the major airports.

As someone that started a Part 380 it should not be discouraged, but even the most knowledgeable of individuals (including anyone in this forum) should take their financial need estimates and at least double them.

I just received an email from them. They are an intra state 121. They don't have to post the stuff that part 380s have to disclose. I may be wrong but intra state means they are not subject to the financial scrutinizes that an interstate carrier undergoesJump to post
Why not look at it this way... Apply the NEOs to the west coast markets...thus freeing up the A330s and 767s (as long as they are around) to serve markets that are further away.

Hi Guys, Thank you for being pretty understanding, and thank you for being understanding.

The trick is to start 5 years out and backtrack. As far as ops costs there was a thread not too long ago that gave block hour costs by airline and type. Maybe someone can provide that link.

There is a great deal of potential but little effort. I still have my eye on it for some key service tied to some local demand. Nothing huge but enough to get the ball rolling.

KPWMS. That is precisely what I meant. In fact I am very much in favor of AHN service ... Just not EAS.

It's sort of a shame. Though I don't believe AHN deserves EAS subsidies, I see so much potential on th northeast side of Atlanta.

This may be naive but I don't think it was paint maintenance. On the complicated liveries I think losses come from down time needed to paint them...not maintain them.

I'm amazed their credit card processor allows this.
