Several months ago, a QF A380 diverted to PHX for medical reasons.Jump to post
Pretty incredible testimony about Capt. Shults!

This all comes back to how Boeing truly dropped the ball by not developing a 737 and 757 replacement in tandem. Instead, airlines are stuck with a cutting edge 50-year old aircraft that had its fuselage MAXed out to proportions not originally intended.Jump to post
It’ll all be okay. If DL is dead set on making a political statement, $40million should be well worth it for them.Jump to post
Neither airline would gain anything through this.Jump to post
Don’t forget that LH had nonstops to FRA from 2001 to 2004 using A342/A343. The Arizona governor at the time made virtually no effort to promote Arizona commerce or tourism. LH’s problem now is they don’t have the right aircraft in their fleet. They A333 would be the largest feasible aircraft, but i...Jump to post
Beyond what was recently announced, AA should.... Re-launch TLV from ORD instead of from PHL on a 1x daily 788. Chicago needs a nonstop to Israel, and UA is already established from EWR and SFO. ...and add or re-instate ORD-HNL (1x 788) ORD-SBN (2x E145) ORD-DLH (2x E145) ORD-LNK (2x E145) ORD-YOW (...Jump to post
I know you guys are the experts on this, so we'll all see what becomes of this development. Exactly, no real details yet, what happened and the cause yet to be determined and/or reported. Even the news program indicated "more to come" in its commentary. Never mind that passenger(s) though...Jump to post

I've heard conflicting reports that the Boeing MOM will be a narrowbody 3-3 aircraft or possibly a widebody 2-3-2. With the combination of being close in size to the 787-8 and the prospects of firing up the 767-300 production line again, is there really room for a small, high-CASM widebody? Wouldn't...Jump to post
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

I think its Time. He's done it all.. Move on I'd like to see some new directions from AA. New blood.
How the heck are the crews going to be scheduled if it operates only 1x per week?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
