I seriously doubt it. AA runs a pretty tight ramp staffing schedule, and it literally leaves almost no room for more than two or three extra flights at a time from scheduled activity. There's no way to handle an extra 6 flights gating early with the current staffing model. On another note, it looks...Jump to post
While shooting from the T4 car park, I noticed (and I remember now seeing it every other time I've been to PHX) that a number of morning arrivals land then 'park' on the ramp area to the north-west of the cross bridges. At one point there were seven or eight AA arrivals just parked there. Is this c...Jump to post
How many posts from new members will need to be approved? I just made my second post but that is awaiting approval. This will be my third post and I'm about to press the 'SUBMIT' button as an experiment to see if this will also need approval. Does that apply to all first posts or only new threads? ...Jump to post
This thread needs to stay on topic and without personal attacks or it will be locked. There is no reason this topic can't be discussed without insults and overly defensive comments, because they're completely unproductive.
This thread is regarding new ORD-SEA service. For users wishing to discuss potential impacts to DL's Detroit hub, please do so in the Detroit Air Service Thread or in a new thread.
I'm not aware of any new insights, but I think there's no question that the pilot's ability to recover the aircraft prevented a major disaster. However, there certainly is dispute over the cause of the uncommanded roll. The potential for the pilots having intentionally engaged the slats, combined wi...Jump to post
Please keep the thread on topic. As a reminder, this is regarding UA's decision to not order additional 77Ws, nor the A330neo.

In a word: No. There just isn't a significant enough of a draw from the US to either market. There isn't even a direct BKK flight to the US, and that would occur far sooner than CGK or KUL. All of which would be unlikely to happen on UA. MH is in no position to fly to the US, and I believe that Indo...Jump to post
[ although apparently the highest gust ever recorded was 220kt on Barrow Island, Australia by an automated station during a tropical storm in 1996.

This thread has shifted rather dramatically off topic. As a reminder, this is regarding Delta being named one of the best companies to work for. That has nothing to do with scheduling, cancelations, delays, etc. Please keep the thread on topic.

They have 24 gates in DEN (same as PHX). There's an article on azcentral (attached below) where the WN president does indicate that they may be giving up gates on their other concourses: http://www.azcentral.com/story/travel/airlines/2017/03/08/southwest-airlines-expanding-phoenix/98920440/ And yet...Jump to post
Are we sure WN is going to continue to occupy all of S3 and S4 once S1 is completed? It seems to me WN could move operations to S1, S2, and maybe trade some gates on S3 and/or S4 with carriers that currently are operating out of N4 to give them some international gates. The only station in the WN s...Jump to post
What is the separation required by aircraft? I was flying on a 737 the other day and saw a plane pass by going in the opposite direction pretty close. It was lower and it's hard to tell depth, but is was closer than I expected. We were at cruise altitude over Kansas. 1,000 feet vertical below FL410...Jump to post
In the words of Jeremy Clarkson, "poo was shooting out!" Incidents like this will probably lead to increased separation standards around Super aircraft. Operationally it would suck to require 2,000 feet vertical separation -- it would be like the old days of pre RVSM between FL290-FL410 --...Jump to post

The majority of HA's departures use 8/26. 262 of the last 364 departures have used 8/26, or about 72%.

I think that G4 AZA-ABQ is highly unlikely. It just isn't in keeping with their portfolio at AZA. LAS was a very rare exception because that serves as hub-to-hub, and it also pulls from a large number of Phoenix passengers. ABQ doesn't have the same draw to adequately compete with existing service f...Jump to post
Why is this a story? The A310 is about as obsolete as it gets. Receiving $5 million for it is -- at most -- about all they'd get in scrap value anyway. I can only assume this is politically motivated, but with the various issues in Pakistan, I fail to understand why this is any kind of priority.Jump to post
This coming from a man who continued to own a private jet, a massive yacht, and a Formula 1 team even though his employees went for months without a paycheck. This is just a ploy to deflect from the fact that he ran his company into the ground, but suffered little because of it.Jump to post
What does it matter. Why should the crew be subjected to such BS, when you already trust them with the aircraft.

And for those of you that minimize the radiation the scatter machines expose us to, we would be exposed to it on a daily basis AND we already have a higher rate of cancer in our ranks due to increased radiation levels at altitude.

That's just painful to watch. I have no experience on the ramp, but incidents like this seem to stem from pure negligence and lack of attention to detail. Maybe if he hadn't have just floored it, he wouldn't have effectively written off an airplane.Jump to post

Allegiant isn't in the business of stealing traffic from the US3, they primarily serve underserved markets which the majors don't bother with. 2 weekly service won't steal traffic from AA or UA, but 21 weekly from AA/UA will take more from Allegiant.

It seems to me that it might be better for their brand to place these aircraft with Cathay Dragon instead, but I understand the need to shift to higher density aircraft in general.

I think it is. Before 2010, it seemed like turbulence wasn't all that common, most of the time it was light chop and nothing more than mild.
