Hi all, anyone aware of BBD flight testing or customer-related flights through BTV? I can see the approach out my office window and there's an all-white plane that could be a CS300 (I never catch a look at the nose) doing frequent approaches today and recently. There's a BBA callsign today on flight...Jump to post
I'm not a lawyer, but Gorsuch voted to hear a case here, not decide on one. This seems commensurate with his declining to join the pool of clerks which does the gatekeeping for the court. He ignored the consensus and voted to hear this case.Jump to post
Outsourcing gate staff.
I have had consistently bad experiences transferring from mainline to regional. It's abundantly clear that the outsourced CSAs at the regional gates don't give a shit about any customer satisfaction metrics.
Reinforced today in EWR terminal A.
Is there a max passenger threshold over which Boeing has to redo the emergency evacuation test/drill? The one-class config in the 777-9X looks to be in the high 400s. Would it be legal?
I guess the same question goes for the 737-10.
I as flight crew am tired of some passengers thinking they are above the law towards crew. *customers. Really? Is "passengers" inappropriate or offensive to you? Yeesh No, the words passengers isn't offensive. Calling them customers really steamed a bunch of people though, which is telling.Jump to post

The airline industry has been treating their customers so poorly for so long, they had become numb to it and probably didn't even realize it. That is why Oscar didn't make a statement like this initially, that is why the gate agent allowed the pax to be removed, and why the crew asked the pax to to...Jump to post
2) Companies have got to train their employees well and empower them to make good decisions. Sometimes a rule needs to be bent, and employees need to be empowered to think on their feet without fear of repercussions from management for doing so. YES.

Companies that excel in business know that although the customer is not always right, they are always to be treated respectfully as any customer deserves to be treated. This situation has blown up in UA's face not because the customer was right, but rather because UA failed one simple rule: Treat y...Jump to post

The gate agent was doing her job. She was following the rules set forth by the company who gives her a paycheck. The rules state "no leggings" for non-revs. Should the gate agent have looked the other way only to face a possible reprimand later? Or, what about the person who issued the pa...Jump to post
Sorry , was not clear. I was in paid F Subu So if you weren't standby, how is this relevant to the discussion? There's another thread on here of people just complaining that airlines no longer wait for connecting passengers. My 2 cents: if you are connecting from mainline to a regional, the regiona...Jump to post

A 1996 vintage router probably would have 10/100 'fast' ethernet, that's right when the transition away from coax was happening.

K4 will keep them going until they are out of engines (which they have no spares).

Why does Delta have no A320 family A/C at SEA? They only fly here once in a blue moon from LAX, and every other DL hub sees them...so why so few Airbus A320/319 aircraft here?
