Despite MIA being ~200 miles longer than ATL, AAB a year ago said Al Baker said their current Airbus A350s do not have the range to serve Atlanta, but that they will reevaluate it once the longer range A350-1000s enter service. I wonder what changed this time? lighter new frames, low load factors, ...Jump to post
As a "former" smoker who finds a way to sneak one here and there, the industry has long moved past smokers and I do not see a return to it, unless Marijuana really ends up taking off (and even then, now most of my friends vape anyway). I don't see a future for lounges at all. Nicotine is o...Jump to post

We should change the title to add "temporarily lease" - sounds like a long-term lease. Either way, not good for the 787, I was hoping they would order more. Funny when it comes to 320NEO groundings it's a P&W issue. When it comes to RR issues it's a 787 problem. What "grounding&q...Jump to post
I know right? Cause there are no Terrorists in real life. They are all made up! /sarcasm Where did I say that? You have created a strawman argument.

Did they really? I'm a DL fanboy and live in SEA... didn't notice anything.

Uhhhh... London? Milan? He said US No, he only gave US examples With new service at OAK and SJC in the last year, does that give the Bay Area the distinction of being the only region with three International airports? NYC has three but only JFK and EWR are Int'l, DC has three, but only IAD and BWI ...Jump to post
You know, seems AA is scratching their heads figuring out what to do with the A359's they ordered. Seems if they opted for the ULR package, they could fly MIA- JNB or even the oft rumored MIA-NRT They keep deferring them. They might not even make it in the fleet. They were ordered by pmUS, not AA. ...Jump to post

With enough A359s on the books the 338 order would be a nice boost for the program. AA also has plenty of A332s and 763s to eventually replace.Jump to post

Korean and Japan airlines could use SCL to connect their pax's in the region with LATAM.
I like the new livery a lot, nice to see they didn't go euro-white. And the NEO looks stunning, love those huge powerplants!Jump to post
How's Azul doing, by the way? After last years struggles in Brazil I was worried for them. Glad to see things seem to be going well.Jump to post
They're selling transcon Y tickets at under U$400, not hard to see why they cut so many services to coach pax.Jump to post
DL has invested heavily on Boston, AA doesn't seem to have the same priority. I think DL filled the gap and improved on it, so they win.Jump to post
For some reason I thought A332s weren't supposed to stick around long.Jump to post
Could they add GIG from anywhere? Maybe FCO-GIG or BCN/CDG-GIG?Jump to post
Still praying for BCN-BOS.Jump to post
Sounds similar to what happened in Denver a few weeks back.Jump to post

really disappointed in DL decision to go all out on Airbus.

411 seats on an A359? Must be 10-abreast! Wonder how this compares with 9-abreast 787s or 10-abreast 777s? Think about like this. The A350 is 5 inches wider than a 787. The 787 9 abreast configuration is supposedly terrible. Now think about fitting another seat in that 5 extra inches and you should...Jump to post

Wouldn't this be a little redundant for pre-clearance airports?Jump to post
I figured they would just pour them back into the bottles and then toss the bottles? The video has been removed, so cannot comment much on it.Jump to post
