And also very interesting that UA is going back up to 3x daily from LAX to DFW. It used to be 3x daily, and cut it back not long ago. Then they have also cut LAX-MSP completely. Interesting changes at LAX for UA. DFW back to 3x daily. There must be massive yields and UA must be making bank on the r...Jump to post
Call me incorrect, but US never flew their A333 PHL-TLV. It only went as far as ATH. And their A332s should have had absolutely no problem doing TLV. Those airplanes are not 242T but they are still newish and should have high performance. I really don't think this story explains why AA is not in TL...Jump to post
My "theory" is that AA-TLV will restart in 2018. ORD is now the largest market in the US without a nonstop to TLV. It also would also serve as a more robust connecting hub than PHL. If AA would start ORD-TLV with a 788, plus significantly expand the LY code-share relationship, it would be...Jump to post

Since DL serves LNK from ATL & MSP, and UA serves it from DEN & ORD; what is the likelihood of AA entering the market? One could estimate that 2 daily nonstop from both DFW and ORD would work well for them, probably starting off with an ERJ-145. Is this a long-shot or could this really work?Jump to post
With what appears to be some rather drastic changes coming soon for North Korea, what can we expect in the short- and long-term for commercial aviation service and infrastructure after the Kim Jung-Un regime is toppled? There are some expectations that once that happens, there will be a long, slow r...Jump to post
WN planning on giving up C1,C2,C11 & C12 . All these 4 gates are limited to 737-300 or 737-700. So WN is not giving up a whole concourse just gates that have limited availability with it's evolving bigger fleet. Flyguy That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Why would they give them up inste...Jump to post

It would appear that JetBlue has a RASM problem, rather than a CASM problem. It would be reasonable to conclude that JetBlue's Revenue Management leadership and programs are due for a major overhaul in the near future.Jump to post
Perhaps they mean that they are not authorizing oversales until their new reservations system up and running as anticipated? That would make the most business sense.Jump to post
A commendable legacy for the 737, however, if Boeing had been as innovative as in the past, this should have been the year they rolled out a clean-sheet 737/757-replacement, the 797, instead of settling on the uninnovative MAX. With the 797, they could have shared many parts and had flight deck comm...Jump to post
Recently, with great fanfare, it was announced that Southwest is going to move into the final concourse (S1) in PHX Terminal 4. Many jumped to the conclusion that Southwest was embarking on an ambitious expansion plan in PHX. But if you read between the lines, is it really an expansion? According to...Jump to post
As much as I personally hate to see smaller cities lose air service, EAS is a complete boondoggle. As for Alaska routes, the federal taxpayers shouldn't be on the hook for them. However, it would be perfectly acceptable for the State of Alaska to subsidize such routes. States should be given the pow...Jump to post
Would love to see PHL, I remember reading they wanted to expand to the east from COS so I got my fingers crossed. Also Frontiers twitter page says stay tuned for tomorrow for an exciting announcement. I'm a big PHL fan, but I would expect NY or DC service before PHL. Even if AA announces a new city...Jump to post

[quote="enilria"] I thought this type of coordination was expressly forbidden until approved? If I was DOT/DOJ I would take this negatively.
Who gives a crap what they think? Remember the baseless shenanigans they pulled with US/AA?
Hasn't this been an over-discussed topic on A.Net since its inception? Why not discuss straight pilots once in a while? What would there be to discuss?

Is it that they do not recognise Israel as a state, or not as a Jewish state. As already answered, the UAE and Qatar do not recognize Israel as a state. There is also the issue of Saudi overflights; if the UAE and Qatar recognize Israel, it will impact their rights with Saudi. Personally, all 3 sho...Jump to post
By looking at the current world events, it could be when LY serves DXB and DOH, and with the Gulf States establishing diplomacy with Israel.
