Airbus stick doesnt move when other pilot is moving it. Big fault. If other guy tries to help in bad situation it sums input...also bad design. Ask Captains about watching a new FO land helplessly.

Why is it a joke?
What is funny about $22 billion going to Boeing?
Enlighten us with an educated, factual answer please

People buy 2 seats all the time.
Those are their seats.
No problem. Very common in industry
I haven't seen the new marketing campaign with regards to location. If taxi ads really say "Closer to NYC than JFK" you realize the competitive DISADVANTAGE in terms of perception UA really has vs Delta. It is a problem. The ongoing Penn Station fiasco isnt helping. Everyday on Good Day Ne...Jump to post
Also, to clarify on a post by STT757.

Chicago is geographically only 200 miles west of Atlanta. While Georgia may be on the east coast, I don't think it is really geographically related to EWR. Only because the East Coast curves inland until it hits north Florida. Chicago is geographically nowhere near the east coast at its respective ...Jump to post
Apparently the alleged shooter posted anti-Republican and anti-Trump views on his social media sites. Sadly some on the 'left' can be violent too, frustrated by the inability to prevent changes or policy that affects them.

B of A pulled out as well. The play is controversial in NY as well. You assume we are all the same...but we are not. Trump won 46 of 62 counties in New York. And in NYC he won 1 of 5 boroughs. So to say all NYers are cool with this garbage is not true. Been big (negative) headlines in NYC area for a...Jump to post
What's F9s game plane post DEN?
A bunch of cities with semi daily flying to places like MCO and LAS?
It seems like they are a company in search of a mission.
Even NK holds on to a hub in FLL for dear life.
ATC is never a factor in these decisions unless you're prioritizing people pleasing over aviating. Unless assigned a LAHSO, the whole runway is yours for as long as you need it. ATC may ask you to hustle off or try to make an intersection, but it is not a restriction, and if you are a good pilot, yo...Jump to post
I understand that you live there. Surely you know, first hand, why virtually every foreign carrier has stopped flying there.
I'd venture to say that the dozen or so left are trying to hang on to see if the situation improves. I'd imagine they too will leave if it doesnt.
It's very sad. Tragic.

JFK down to one runway with 4 hour delays. BOS 2 hour delays. LGA and EWR yada yada...
Been a bad spring with runway construction and an unusual amount of IFR damp cool days.
Going to be a rough summer in BOS. JFK runway reopens 6/1.
I hope not. The Republicans really seem to be trying to put their egos first rather than ties between their countries. While other nations are building business, tourist and trade links with Cuba, the US "leadership" seem intent on dragging themselves and others back to the Cold War era. ...Jump to post
AA and DL dont even fly JFK-Trans Pac. They both have hubs there. The market is so much larger it is ridiculous.
What logic would make you think they would fly BOS - TransPac in any circumstance? Especially now that there are new 787s flying Asia Boston on Asian carriers?
Dude the truth is someone between you two guys. JFK sucks. 22L is closed. And when it reopens, there will be something else. Why people leave NY...everything is like that there. But fact is, B6 runs a bad on time operation. Their stats play that out. There on time performance system wide is worse th...Jump to post

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

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

Anyone thinking otherwise doesnt see reality

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
