Please stick to the topic. Off topic comments and flame bait will be removed. There's no reason for this to be an inflammatory subject. Users wanting to be critical of UA's customer service or aspects unrelated to their Q2 results should do so in a more appropriate topic.
Unfortunately people can't discuss this topic without attacking each other. I find it very sad that some users choose not to engage in respectful discussion when politics become involved.

Interesting insights. Thanks, didn't know these things. The thing about the 321 really surprises me. Well then if AA does come and do a PHX-LHR maybe it'll be a 772. Wonder if they could dovetail that with the HNL route and solve two A330 issues? That would require two frames, but I would think the...Jump to post
ATC couple of issues here, Scott Kirby remember him, anyways he spoke in front of us at a Greater Phoenix Economic Council gathering (2009-2010ish), the plan was FRA in 2011 and NRT in 2012. (I guessing that they delayed part of the 332 order which played a factor). It wasn't a 346 but they were tr...Jump to post
Any update from AA on expansion out of PHX to ASIA? I see AA has cut some service out of ORD but have not heard on PHX growth? No, because it's not happening. I heard at one point that PHX-NRT had a possibility of commencing, but IDK much beyond that... That was several years ago, and prior to the ...Jump to post
During the conference call today UA reiterated that they are still looking for used aircraft opportunities. We were discussing 777s and Hawaii, would UA be interested in used 777-300s, non ERs. Perhaps half a dozen or so for the Pacific from Hawaii and Guam? My guess would either be for increased d...Jump to post
Probably a Tower Enroute Clearance. By utilizing abutting Tracons, they can avoid the problems with trying to enter the enroute system and the Center controllers. For most of those southern departures it means handoffs from NY to McGuire, Atlantic City and Dover, then some routing through Salisbury...Jump to post
Can you explain what a Sermon South route is, and what you mean by the 6k feet cap and 250k ? The laypeople of this form (myself included) would greatly appreciate it! Not sure exactly what is meant by Sermon South, but I'm presuming it is a low level (Victor Airway) routing. In US airspace, broadl...Jump to post
This has been going on since before I was born, however every single airport in the world experiences bad weather of sorts and many can cope with it. Is it because of the sheer amount of traffic going into/out of JFK/LGA/EWR/PHL? Volume and airspace complexity is the simple answer. Don't forget TEB...Jump to post
Looks like they're still running the Sermon South routes, so all of the flights departing NYC for the DC Metros and RDU are capped at 6,000ft (and 250k, obviously). Airlines don't have to accept the routing and altitude/speed cap, but it's one way they can get out sooner.Jump to post

Damn...the 330 is that bad performance-wise in a hot clime? I didn't realize that; seems odd given DE is using a 763 out of here...is the 763 that much superior?

I have a feeling it'll be an a330, as American doesn't have a great record in ex-US hubs. The thought of an A330 trying to operate from PHX to LHR...in the summer...in the afternoon...yikes.

Given that BA is running with two 744s some days now during the summer, I'm sort of skeptical BA is going to cede the route to AA on a smaller aircraft. They wouldn't be ceding anything — it's a revenue sharing joint venture. It doesn't make a difference who flies the route with what, they both sha...Jump to post

There is room for additional competition on PHX to Florida nonstop routes since AA and WN are currently the only carriers to have nonstop service to Florida from PHX. B6, NK, F9, and/or SY could add nonstop service to Florida destinations from PHX in order to provide additional competition on PHX t...Jump to post
The thread appears to have been started based on a faulty premise. I cannot find anything in the provided article that indicates Boeing is "shelving" the 797/NMA in any way. Because of this, leaving the topic unlocked is only likely to create a lot of Airbus vs. Boeing flamebait. Since I d...Jump to post
Why are they going to get rid of T2 when PHX doesn’t have many available gates for new airlines? Is it too old or something? Between the renovated T3 (will be called Concourses E/F) and the completion of the S1 pier in T4 (Concourse D expansion), there will be excess capacity. There won't be a reas...Jump to post

From 37,000 feet on a UA 737-900! I just read a CNN.com article up right now about the A330-900neo. While it speaks mostly of Delta’s order, at the very bottom it says (paraphrasing) “United is also looking at ordering the A330-900neo” It’s that fantasy or does it have some merit?

“JetBlue upgauged Richmond-Orlando nonstop flights to mainline aircraft.” I didn’t know they had non-mainline aircraft. They use their Airbus vs Embraer aircraft.

Sounds like good news all around. Datalink is fantastic for many reasons. Just one example: On the A350, if you get a frequency change via datalink, there's a "LOAD" button on the radio panel which automatically sets the frequency in the standby. Just hit the flip-flop and away you go. It...Jump to post

How often is guard even used? Is it pretty common? Frequently. Multiple times per hour for each guard site, in some cases. 90% of the time, it's ATC using it to reach a NORAC aircraft.

I have to imagine PHX is on the shortlist for LH expansion. With the success of BA and Condor, I would think PHX would be a worthwhile (re)add for LH.
