If they Truly want to aling with the VS product line an order of B787-900 would be a good startJump to post
Amazon is going to have to buy into a Certificate sooner rather than later. They have to realize that with ABX, ATSG, ATLAS and every other CMI deal will NOT prioritize their goals, and are only a temporary measure. IF they really want to control their destiny they must acquire a certificate, and br...Jump to post
It appears that AA strategy in SJU is directly affected by the LCC/ULCC entry. They have exited traditional markets, most recently NYC an anchor market that has been served since AA started flying to SJU. Could the AA SJU Station be in jeopardy to become irrelevant? The Eagle feed has long been gone...Jump to post
I flew yesterday 8/19/17 on a E190, with a INOP APU out of BOS. We did a ENG start at the gate and departed for a flawless 2.5h flight, with 96pax. The return flight from FL to BOS appeared 3/4 full at minimum as we disembarked. If the other metrics on the airplane are working out CASM, RASM, and th...Jump to post
I think what this demonstrates is: Your "connection" to mainline is neither better or more profitable than the mainline service. We are coming full circle from the post 9/11 Explosion of growth when mainline carriers parked their 727 in lieu of 2.5 CRJ or ERJ. Regionals experience growth t...Jump to post

Yeah. It has some of the longest legs in the industry.
It could even do JFK-AKL
The King Air, utilized by Wheels Up is delivered with club seating. A commuter seating option is avail for the King Air and IIRC you can fly the 200 with 10 seats (9pax) and the 300/350 go to 13 or so seats in a 2 seats per row config. This arrangement is a bit cramped for airline ops, specially if ...Jump to post
Did they order with APU or just Prop-Brake?Jump to post
Silver orders ATR, a great UPG to the S340. However the order shows 4 aircraft TBD during Q4 of 2017. The next batch arriving in 2020. That is 24mo with initial 4 frames, before the 5th and subsequent replacements begin to arrive. Is this a trial Period? Would these come with APU ( needed in So. FL ...Jump to post
Above some members are hot and bothered over how much FBW the airplane has, but that's a second order issue. Airbus had some unfortunate fatalities due to issues with its early FBW technology. Seems there was some merit in letting the technology mature a bit before jumping into it, IMHO. Can you pr...Jump to post
How much could a Q300 or Q400 Level IV sim cost? Running this 24h a day, should get your time up rather quickly!
The 1500H do not have to be on type? how about a King Air 350 if the Sim is non existent?
I still do not understand why in ATL they do not utilize 10/28 for Southbound departures. They use it mostly for Arrivals, it appears to me given the .10m taxi from the terminals and long taxi to it, it would be ideal to stage departures to FL and points in the SE. During a recent evening shower, we...Jump to post
Some E170/E175s in the US don't have Yaw Dampners, as it was an option. Our E175s at Envoy don't. If you must ride on an E175, try not to sit father back than the point of the MLG, if you're prone to motion sickness. Are you serious? How much did they saved on that option ? Sure they can buy a lot ...Jump to post
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!"

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

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

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
