Ryanair and Spirit will figure how to get 220 folks in a small narrow body and charge them for breathing! .... Fare is FREE !!!Jump to post
Folks how many times do we have to beat the horse dead. THE A321NEXT MILENIUM will never make it to B757 performance of 35years ago! Put it to rest....
Perhaps if Airbus called it the A329 it would be easy to see the next performance level is the A332.
Funny that its comes from Scott Kirby, who was 2IC to Doug Parker when they jointly decided to transform America West into a low cost carrier after 9/11 - they even changed the stock market code to LCC. I guess he has to defend his territory somehow. https://s31.postimg.org/jagsti6q3/smile.gif mari...Jump to post
MIA is certainly doable for higher yields during the winter. Just do not know how they plan to deal with AA, when they decide the pesky F9 is siphoning revenue away. How many frames do they need to make this happen?Jump to post

Time for Delta to pick up more cheap used aircraft! I hope you're joking. This line is getting very old. Anytime an airline plans to retire an aircraft everyone says "Delta!" Dude look at the flightline..... DELTA has the more mixed and seasoned combination of types of any MAJOR CARRIER. ...Jump to post
I wonder what DL would do with such dilema.... I rather take KLM and leave CDG and the whole AF deal behind, but I think AF and DL have more synergies.Jump to post
What a joke? I guess the weekend help tried to put out the storm, before the Legal Team arrived on Monday. Folks you buy a seat ( ultimately any seat ) in a "UTILITARIAN SERVICE from: A to B"..... I assume this was the ATLJNB sector where she "HAD to HAVE" that seat... get a life!Jump to post
The only reason of the initial question, they just refered to the 359 as the "flagship"... and as others mentioned the remaining NW love affair with Airbus. Based on the responses, the community feels the A33HW is the best fit for DL....oh well!Jump to post
As a WORLDWIDE Ferry Pilot, I can say sometimes we have no other option than to carry the CASH. AFRICA, INDIA, EAST ASIA are areas of the world where there is no other way to PAY for Services. Folks NOT EVERYONE TAKES a CC and CASH IS KING...... AFRICA wants NEW $100 bills for their payment. ONLY!!!!Jump to post
The ONLY way this works is if they fly the MIA SCHED 4 days a week and the ATL 2 days a week with one day for MTC. Block times from PTP/FDF to ATL and back will exceed 8-9h when they fly the route, they use those planes to fly to OTHER points also, so unless they add frames to the network I do not s...Jump to post
From the day DL decided CARGO was not important in SJU the WB are gone all you get is 738/9/A319/20 when a 757 shows up there is a party!Jump to post

The airplane choice is the difference here .... the 787 is a better ride overall.Jump to post
The original idea of the 75/767 was to provide airlines with "cockpit commonality" so pilots could fly the 75/753/762/763 interchangeable, according to mission requirements. Only after this industry leading initiative, that we now have "aircraft families" A319/320/321/332/333 or ...Jump to post
Most of the times in order to place the logo you either own or have exclusive use. But most certainly you also are responsible to maintain it!Jump to post
I do not know how it works for an airline with a lease agreement, but I thought PILOTS need to be licensed by the country of Registry to operate aircraft.
Same as Mechanics need to be licensed under the Country of Registry to perform maintenance on the aircraft.
The entire point of this post was to bring about the Perception/Reality issue that is prevalent in .Airliners.net. Thousands of Arrival/departures are accomplished every day from hardstands, WE in the US have decided against and have about 90% JETBRIDGE operational approach. This can be debated if b...Jump to post
I wonder how many airports in the US have the ability to provide Hard Stand Parking for aircraft up to 200PAX on a ops ready basis.... stairways/transfer buses/procedures.
How much would this set up save if any from the GATE JETWAY Parking we have grown use to in the US.
DHC builds a good airplane...... wonder how much is the HMV investment required for these birds? Does anyone knows if there are any LIFE LIMITS in the DH8 series? Can they go the way of the Viking Otter since NO ONE is making 35seaters any more?Jump to post

If you fail to understand the protectionist laws of ITALY, you fail to understand this problem. The UNIONS will BY LAW continue to be paid by AZ or the Government.

I see this as a person that owns more cars than days of the week. If they own 230-250 airplanes and park 30 a day, is only a bit more than 10% of the fleet.

Remember Encachment Area is probably more relevant than Population size.

This is the name issue with claiming to be the largest...... The city of Jacksonville has the distinction of having the largest AREA of any Incorporated city in the state or the nation for that matter. Population density Not so much! ALL major FL cities i.e.: TPA/MIA/ORL are denser but not LARGER.Jump to post
MAIN REASON is DELTA..... AND ATL OPTIONS. SJU did work for B6 however they tagged it to a JAX-BOS rotation and times where not the best. A LAX nonstop could be sustained, International service to Europe not so much with MCO/ATL/MIA offerings very competitive pricing. The potential for direct servic...Jump to post
