If you attend a parade in NYC, you see this flag quite often. Usually with the mounted unit, motorcycle unit, or nypd marching band. Along with the Emerald Society, these are widespread symbols of the NYPD. Now that I have seen the NYPD shield below the jetway line, I am 100% sure B6 did this to hon...Jump to post
Can MCI LGA be a mistake?
There isnt an excess capacity on this route at all.
No flights to JFK. A few flights to EWR.
Pretty shabby schedule.
That is the NYPD flag. I personally think B6 (while a strong supporter of cops and nypd) is trying to walk a fine line here. Many of their pax are from NYC communities of color that may not be thrilled with the nypd. (A view I disagree with btw) This is a little less in your face than an NYPD shield...Jump to post
Here we go again. Guys are giving you the "word" from Bluejet and Airbus fans go wild. Long story short, I said it before and I will say it again, you will not see an LR at B6 flying to Europe. They may take delivery for other things like deeper S America out of FLL. Word has it that LR wi...Jump to post
His virgin brand is worthless in america...on an airline or anything else.

I love how you guys seem to think this is a political situation. Didnt trump just get in trouble for sharing this same info with the Russian ambassador 3 days ago? So what is it? It's real classified intelligence he shared (and he's awful) or their is no laptop threat and this is political bias (and...Jump to post
Delta can expand plenty at JFK. They have more slots and a lot of RJs using said slots.Jump to post
Yes, but you can not bet on that STT performance with any regularity.Jump to post
Re: STT The plane can not get off the runway and make JFK or BOS non stop without penalty. You need a 757 (and I think a 738 can do it) The Airbus simply can not do it. They can fly to STT nonstop as they do from BOS. But the return needs to stop somewhere. Even in SXM, you often see B6 departing ov...Jump to post
The way to go involves this factoid: In 2017, Italy does not need a national airline. LCCs (as well as trains) serve intra Italy and Europe well. Foreign carriers serve international destinations. The way to save AZ 15 years ago was to put it under the umbrella of LH (or another bigger rival) and ke...Jump to post
AA gutted BOS a long time ago.
Anyone thinking otherwise doesnt see reality
These are a few leftover US rj routes.
I remember 15 eagle gates in the southie terminal. Been gone for 10 years
Spread the wealth to what? Failing routes? Certainly they will take into account viability after the initial round of routes have either been scrapped or downgraded.

These slots go to JB and DL or AA to MIA/FLL imoJump to post
Their move was the WN buyout. They didnt do it. What you're seeing is an airline that got pushed out of their hub and now has a lost in the woods approach to new routes. It is a dart board approach with few routes lasting long and few routes flown with frequency. As others have noted, it has been mo...Jump to post
And yet people trek all the way to JFK for a slew of in perimeter destinations He has a point JFK-DFW is a huge hole in B6s network.

I have never been on a more squished seat in my life than an AA175
The seats dont align with the windows. When the guy in front reclined, I actually felt claustrophobic and had to get up for a few minutes. That's from an airline pilot

Re: lease expiration
Could it be that UA didn't want to renew the lease?
Given today that AS essentially picked up UAs space and club in T7, doesn't it seem weird that UA, with the same sized operation, was getting kicked out and forced to find a new terminal?
The problem with the T4/T1 shuffle swap expansion...T4 is just nicer. T1 needs a lot more than a new pier to compete on the same level as T4. You wouldn't want T1 to take the place as the anchor international terminal for JFK like T4 is now.Jump to post

If there's a ban, there's a ban.
After liquids ban, you and the flying public will adjust to anything.
And they'll still keep coming to the US
Sounds awful but it is true.
I called VX in T7 2 years ago.

going to see virgin planes (at least initially) in a British Airways terminal. money talks and this replaces the domestic United operation nicely
http://otp.investis.com/clients/us/jetblue_airways/usn/usnews-story.aspx?cid=981&newsid=44832 A profit is a profit, but for a smaller, supposedly nimble airline, this carrier has problems: Out of control costs Slowing growth Fleet Review Unresolved Pilot contract which will really increase costsJump to post
Actually, JFK is indeed a hub. More people connect on AA through JFK than LGA. But you are correct, it is a hub for domestic to international transfers. One or two banks take care of that. LGA is truly an O and D operation. Mainline fights almost exclusively to hubs and a large RJ operation that all...Jump to post
Cant UA consolidate into an enlarged A/B? Is a new concourse really necessary if no one wants to pay for it? Certainly UA doesnt need the amount of gates they have now right?

This thread is better positioned in 2004/5.
I liked big American cars like old Buicks and Caddys...but that ship has sailed. Today every plane looks the same (and in the US) so does every sedan and crossover.
Efficiency and Technology.
Onward and Upward.
They should drop the AA brand and revert to TWA.
See how moronic that sounds?
Could the poster mentioning UA getting kicked out of T7 provide some background? Or a link? Or give us some sort of idea how you knew that? There are a lot of stories about T7 on a.net. I don't think any of us ever heard this one. I know, at the time, BA had just resigned their T7 lease. As for term...Jump to post
They could go back to T7 tomorrow if they wanted to. T7 is still in the same spot minus CX flights as a year ago. There have been token flights added here and there: Lot, Interjet, Qatar, Eastern.

The ironic thing is that they got nothing for the slots. The EWR slot swap was stopped and then slots at EWR went away. there were some gates traded in Terminal B...but it still is not clear if that was part of this deal. certainly wasnt announced during initial press release. http://newsroom.united...Jump to post
Proof that airlines are still run by little boys trying to be king of the playground.
If you saw the Ioads, this move would make you sick.
But wait...loads aren't everything! This is high yield! Haha

You cant be the largest airline in SFO and LAX and not serve JFK.

The travel time between JFK and LGA (even in worst rush hour traffic) never exceeds 30 minutes. But there are problems: 1. Security at either end adds another hour. 2.
