Landing on 27R and 35 in PHL has a arrival rate of 60 an hour in good visibility, but it deops to 42 an hour when the visibility starts to fall. Landing on 9R and 17 has an arrival rate of 48 an hour in good weather and in bad weather. Then both configurations fall together. But yes visibility can d...Jump to post
There are some rules that prohibit posing as a different company/carrier. For instance all the regional operators have thier names on the airplane in much smaller print, and the ticket clearly says “(Airline Connection/express) operated by (Regional Airline)”Jump to post
I didn’t mean to white wash it, I just tried to be as politically correct as possible and use the vaguest description in the headline.Jump to post

Sounds like an AA pilot has been charged with assault in GRU... arguing over the placement of the jet bridge.
Generally, in a diversion, the first priority is to take care of the immediate issue, and then to worry about the continuation of the flight afterward the problem has been handled. But rarely are flights diverting to the nearest airport, most likely the nearest online or significant airport.Jump to post
At least in the US, the thing that separates the good de-ice hubs from the bad ones have to do with the location and centralization of the de-ice facility. Generally- DTW, MSP, YUL, YYZ have large deice facilities that out of the way and are near the runways allowing a plane that has been de iced to...Jump to post
People in this thread like the word "simultaneous" -- they use it to mean "happening a minute or two apart", like takeoffs at SFO. Would a 757 landing at LGA ever accept a LAHSO, if asked? LGA doesn’t seam to be approved for LAHSO operations, there are no charted LAHSO lines on ...Jump to post
What? AA/QF has no competition from any JV's between the US and Australia. NZ is pretty close, but the only one between the US and Australia is AA/QF. Huh? DL/VA is a JV between the USA and Australia. QF on its own provides just as many seats between LAX and Australia as DL/VA provides between the ...Jump to post
It is a dangerous practice done in the USA. If you are landing you should have the airspace in continuance of your runway free to be able to go around. Nobody should be able to cross into that airspace while you do the landing and perhaps need to go around. What I have seen at traffic direction on ...Jump to post
It's a flight of about 1h 25m. So what if a baby is crying? These things happen, you should expect it and put up with it or buy a first class ticket.

I think all the airplanes use a noise abatement profile at SNA, but it’s the “standard noise abatement profile” (NADP-1/ NADP-2)... not the severe noise abatement profile of the past where power was drastically reduced. Now it’s a reduction to normal climb power, and a continued climb with delayed f...Jump to post
I recently flew on a Compass E75 out of SNA. I was excited like always to experience the usual SNA takeoff but to my surprise and disappointment, no noise abatement procedure was done.

All the flights require 2 aircraft at a minimum to operate daily, the flights are all over 12 hours in length, so your talking about the aircraft being out of the US for 30 hours, and being unable to operate the next days flight.

All DL flights between SNA and ATL are 757, and those flights are often payload restricted going SNA-ATL.

No, the pilots at Delta, United and AA, should push to move the weight and seat limit lower. Force mainline to fly the product that's being used as a non-regional airplane.
