That is one really nice interior. :cloudnine: I thought these planes were going to have the special tablets as the main IFE? Looks like they have the exact same in-seat PTVs as the majority of the fleet based off of those images. The IFE here is GoGo vision touch - exactly what you described. It's ...Jump to post
A lot of it is availability too. The CEO could be produced now where as the NEO may have a backlog or limited in the amount of output capacity. Also there is a newer version of the NEO that removes doors, has the airbus airspace etc. Sometimes things like that they will wait on especially when you c...Jump to post

Hello all, I’m curious about two things. Forgive me if these have been discussed in other forums. 1. Deltas A350 fleet will surpass the size of the 777 fleet before too long. I occasionally see the 777 on the ATL-LAX route. Not sure if there are any other domestic 777 routes for DL, but I wonder, D...Jump to post
Forcing airlines to be handled by a competitor is new ground for the USA. Self-handling is an option at every airport I know of in the USA except HPN, but the handler is not owned by an airline. I'd rather see these positions go to a vendor that is a wholly-owned subsidiary of an airline such as Mc...Jump to post
I know a guy who has the seniority to hold left seat on A330 but continues to bid right seat on E90 so he can sleep in his own bed almost every night. That’s interesting as a captain on a E90 should have the same schedule as a FO on the E90. Why not just bid for the left seat as you will have the s...Jump to post
Hold on so SNA can tell carriers who can fly the flights? IE it says 7 of the 15 flights for DL are to be operated by OO. What if DL wanted 9E to fly those routes? Why can't DL operated all 15 at mainline level? But AA can operate all 18 at whatever level they want? Also it's not adding up: If 7 are...Jump to post
All should be widely published per airline & aircraft type.

Effectively against millions of individuals. What airlines advertise...Jump to post
I know that there was a post awhile ago about the FAA not wanting to get into the seat size requirements for safety reasons earlier this year. This article implies that Congtess will be passing a bill that will require the FAA to mandate seat size requirements. I feel that this will have some very ...Jump to post
The article says that "Delta collected nearly $908 million in baggage fees in 2017, according to the federal Bureau of Transportation Statistics, triple the amount Delta and Northwest Airlines collected in 2008".

Great paint job. Hope it stays 5-abreast... there was discussion that a tight 6-abreast was possible... but this is Delta we’re talking about! N101DU, I like it. Perhaps could’ve been N101DB or DC for Bombardier or C Series as a nod to its previous (marketing) designation prior to takeover, but DU ...Jump to post

The A220-100 looks great in the DL livery. Good to read it will be based out of my home airport at JFK. Schedule hasn't been posted and he changed from New York to specifically JFK. The article is not correct and aircraft are not necessarily based, but often times referenced to where pilot bases ar...Jump to post
3) AA seems to be is disarray right now Scott left and went to UA. I guess they did not have a no-compete clause and he took all their info with him and now AA is a mess. Part of it is the Parker syndrome, the other part is UA is eating their lunch and has sights set on DL. Remember this is a cycle...Jump to post
Terrible pay (including management's) even by midwest salary standards. Merit employees were paid way better at NW than DL.

Why can’t they just board warm food? They wouldn't have a way to keep the food at a temperature required by the FDA. It’s 2018. I’m sure they could create an insulated cart. Possibly with a built in heat element. There are still rules as to how long something can be waiting from the time its initia...Jump to post
The only drawback for the E175 is no ovens in first class. Despite flights being long enough for a full meal service, first class dinner is often a salad with a side of salad. The flip side is having 12F seats mean some upgrades usually clear. Why can’t they just board warm food? They wouldn't have...Jump to post
It's really just a play on the "beautiful game" referring to Soccer (Football for non-US/Canada folks). So while I think most Anetters were looking for something bigger its does fall in-line with it being about World Cup.Jump to post
While there are a lot of issues at play one of the biggest is as someone mentioned was Cubana doesn't meet FAA requirements. Similar to how Garuda was no longer permitted to fly to the US. Cubana flies over the US everyday on their way to Canada etc.Jump to post

I have a question regarding the new D1 cabins on the A350 and 777-200 from DL. The A350 has an interior width of 18 feet 6 inches while the 777 has an interior width of 19 feet 3 inches. Are the suites upfront the exact same seats or do the 777 seats have a couple extra inches wide? seams at 4 suit...Jump to post
How can they launch a program / family that already exist? I think you mean that they will launch a renewed sales campaign with a couple of orders, but that's something different then how formulate it.

How about the desert for all of them in two years. Every other airline is ditching these shitcans - especially ones built after 1998. And the 28 year old A320's live on until 2035...

Just wondering: Is AA truly one airline with all the contracts settled and combined? If I remember correctly these NEOs were ordered by AA so does that mean old AA has to fly? Or are they past that? Pretty sure they are all one group now, at least on the pilot side. Every time I've flown AA though ...Jump to post

They should send it over to MSY. We could use a LCC to Europe in the fall/winter/spring. It's got to be one of the largest unserved CDG markets in the US.

There is no such thing as the 75P anymore as they reverted them back to the 75G. The 75G was the temporary configuration after they were delivered from Shanghai Airlines.

Presumably JFK and maybe ATL? Agree on DL needing to stop talking about the ME3. In the celebration at the museum, Ed stated it would be from one of the east coast hubs.

I wonder why PBC was not the alternate in the first place. AA serves PBC, but not ACA. Eagle services PBC. Even if mainline served, if say the 738 was never planned there is a possibility that AA doesn't set that up as a diversion for that fleet type. Same way that not all airports are alternates f...Jump to post
