19 $ x 160 h = 3,040 $ / month - I guess that's before taxes and other deductions. How far can somebody go with this money in New York (suburbs included)?

We could all take a lesson from Japanese society They don’t make rules about cell phone use on public transport, their culture of privacy and politeness just expects it And they adhere to this You speak about the Japanese.

"Congress could consider revising its ban in the future to permit calls made with muffling devices or from private booths installed on board” I wonder how much airlines would charge for the use of phone booths since they would have to be installed where you now have seats. Unless they remove o...Jump to post
And to think that there used to be payphones on airplanes... Oh, come on now... If you are truly honest with yourself, you have to admit that the time to which you refer when many commercial airliners had Airphone and Verizon pay phones was back at a time in history when people and society in gener...Jump to post
If someone is respectful of those around them I don’t have a problem with people using phones on aircraft. So when that someone is NOT respectful because they don't know how to be respectful, or because they refuse to be respectful, your comment clearly demonstrates the expectation that hundreds of...Jump to post
It seems to me as we live in an ever more connected world that calls would become the norm. As a pilot I get to position on overseas airlines regularly and have flown multiple carriers that offer such technologies. I have seen people use their own cell phones and never been bothered nor noted any o...Jump to post

Dumb to make a law. Simply should let the market decide. Let airlines offer the feature and let market place decide based on consumer action whether its sticks or not. Each airline can decide on its own if the feature is a benefit or hinderence to their market position. Disagree 150%. Sadly, we liv...Jump to post
I will never understand why people are so hypocritical about talking on planes. People talk in the car, on the bus, on the train, in the office, yet all of a sudden, do it on a plane and you’re the worst person alive.

What about the big legacy airlines that survived thanks to public constant bailouts... List is long but (not) distinguished.

Will be interesting to see whether either AM or DL will codeshare or with G3 on this flight, or provide any connectivity to/from it.Jump to post
I wonder how much of a role the AM/DL JV had in the Mexican authorities not giving EK what they wanted. If the media were to question EK about this, they would vehemently deny it, but I have a feeling that DL/AM may have something to do with it... Hopefully, AM/DL did have something to do with it. ...Jump to post
Looks almost identical to what DL has been using in Delta One on their 757s for several years now: https://travelskills.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Screen-Shot-2014-06-24-at-10.33.27-PM.png https://thepointsguy.com/2017/08/delta-one-757-200-flight-review/ It would be nice if lie-flat seating cont...Jump to post
With the power of the ATI-immunized TATL JV with DL, I suspect that AF will be much more successful this time around. I wish them great success. Still, it would have been better to see KLM open daily DFW-AMS service. AMS connections are so much easier and more pleasant than connections via CDG. It's...Jump to post
I remember that commercial you mention, but I don't ever recall seeing a version of that commercial which included shots of the JFK Worldport.

WN's BOS operation is not doing to well, MKE, IND, and CMH were reduced last year, now AUS, BNA, and BWI this year WN will likely continue to struggle in BOS and will continue to make reductions, IMO.

The major strike against such an aircraft is that the marketplace has already spoken, the consumer is happy flying existing narrowbody planes over longer distances. Be careful not to put forth your personal opinion as fact. There are many, many consumers of air travel, especially business travelers...Jump to post
United and Qantas are the only two airlines on record to need a smaller widebody. Not quite. DL also has significant needs in this area, primarily to replace their large 763ER fleet, but also for some domestic upgauging and short haul international growth. Their interest in NMA is real and have pub...Jump to post

AA is in a really difficult spot at JFK, having far more slots and terminal real estate there than they need. I don't think it is unreasonable to ask: How long until AA's operational cost footprint at JFK becomes cost prohibitive? Are we already there? - They need to feed their partners, especially ...Jump to post
Sourced from arabianbusiness.com ....... Really? Might just as well have come from Al Jazeera.
About Delta, I think they may increase the order (including with 251t airplanes), to replace their older A330ceos. For the 767s, they may likely go for the A330-800neo. DL ordering the A330-800neo makes no sense, either to replace the 767 fleet or otherwise. It is looking more and more as if the ma...Jump to post
AA's instrument in the cabin policy clearly states that the additional seat must be a window in the bulkhead (with a divider) for the instrument. Based off of the image provided in the article, this was not the case so AA was well within their rights to ask the passenger to exit the plane. Consider...Jump to post

If the gate cap at DAL went away, AA could establish a focus city at DAL with nonstop service to its hubs plus other top destinations such as ATL, AUS, BOS, DEN, DTW, FLL, IAH, HOU, MCI, LAS, MSP, MSY, EWR, MCO, STL, SAT, SAN, SFO, and TPA.

That's good news. I have never understood why UX has been a stepchild and taken a distant back seat role in SkyTeam for as long we they have been a member. Time to step up and increase cooperation, connectivity and codesharing with other SkyTeam member airlines.Jump to post
I don't know if the A220 is what sold this contract to the B6 pilot group. It's certainly a nice pay bump over the E190, but the pay rates very underwhelming when comparing to the other pilot group, Delta, that will be flying the aircraft in the US. B6 starts taking deliveries in 2020 so I looked a...Jump to post

This rebranding and product upgrade will also provide a more seamless transition from WS Premium to DL Domestic First when marketing the WS/DL JV. There is now a better match between the two products.Jump to post

B6 is laying off staff to reduce overhead as they prepare for one of two futures: Selling the airline or seeking the funding needed to acquire another airline. Either way, reduced overhead will make them look more attractive on paper to a potential acquirer or lender. Handwriting is on the wall: The...Jump to post

Legal or not, it was completely reckless and irresponsible on the part of the drone operator.
