Re: OAG Changes 8/12/2018: DL Drops CAK-DTW;CZ Adds LAX-SHE;UA Back in IAH-MZT;WN Builds LGB;F9 Extension

It really is a shame how Long Beach treated JetBlue. The airline was such a big sponsor to the community and tried everything. Some people in government looked at B6 as this entity that can't leave and we can shake them dry for money. I hope they keep their current operation, but i am sure WN will s...

Re: A321XLR: Seattle-Asia?

SEA-ANC-Asia is more likely. I could see a ULCC setting up shop in ANC. CALI, LAS, PHX, DEN, SLC, SEA, PDX those are big markets to Asia. People want ULCC even on longer routes, they say they don't but that is what people book. What Iceland is to Europe ANC could be to Asia.
