Does crow taste like chicken? You can exclude Endeavor as long as we always make sure they're excluded when it comes to fleet size, on time stats, passengers carried and anything else that could provide a "positive" result. What's being discussed here is not a "brand" thing, but...Jump to post
Its rather simple argument to make you are on duty for a company for X hours however you are only compensated for Y hours. It's hard to see how 9th Circuit or the SCOTUS will rule against this. I don't know want argument AS will make but it will be interesting to see. I always thought FA's and pilot...Jump to post

I'm surprised as to why YVR-MCO or YVR-FLL can't work with the A220? Do people in Vancouver just go down to SEA and fly to Florida? I don't think an A220 can make it that far? Miami-Vancouver though is the single largest U.S.-Canada market without a non-stop, and MIA/FLL have extensive Canada servi...Jump to post
Once the current leases begin to expire on the 717s, I see Boeing being very aggressive on pricing to keep those 88 birds wearing the widget. DL will get a smoking deal from Boeing without question.. whether DL will take it is another story.Jump to post
If passengers cant be offered a seat belt for the entire flight they shouldn't be boarded point blank.Jump to post
Are these going to replace the 10 73G’s in their fleet? Why would DL get rid of the -700s while they still have many other 737 NGs including 900ERs still being delivered? They missed the peak of the resale market while WN was buying them up. They serve a purpose, have commonality, and are a newer g...Jump to post
How much cargo can a containerized A321 theoretically carry? I think we'll see at least 1 or 2 widebodies on the mainland-SJU runs for the foreseeable future. The only other option is to hire a freighter to take the cargo for you... AA could simply run less cargo to SJU. See, wasn't that easy! If c...Jump to post
Would it make sense to move the FIS from T4 to the T3 South extension? I was thinking to make at least 10 gates FIS capable (not dedicated) with 2 being dedicated widebody gates. AA may not like the idea but it would beneficial to more carriers overall. That would create an operational nightmare fo...Jump to post

Huge disagree. I doubt most rampers have the longevity or interest to identity what an hf antenna looks like. They also do not have the “skin” in the game that the pilot does. Get off your high horse. Rampers arent dumb. Most airlines train their rampers to understand the critical parts of the exte...Jump to post

They did not top off fuel in Iran, so they had to stop and refuel.
There are still some opportunities for further expansion by WN at PHX, including the following: ⋅ Extending PHX-CVG nonstop service to daily year-round nonstop service ⋅ Adding PHX-BDL, PHX-MEM, and PHX-IAD nonstop service ⋅ Adding PHX-LGB nonstop service if WN can get...Jump to post

I would not be surprised if an attempt is made merge CommutAir and Expressjet. I would be surprised. First of all, they currently are owned by two separate companies.

I seem to recall, Mana Air is also majority owner of CommutAir. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the two carriers combined. Different company.

A318 being small, is there any chance government operator picking up for VIP type usage? I was thinking the same thing. The plane already has a 3,000 nm range.

I may be mistaken, but I believe their pilot contract requires any flying sold as a Southwest flight to be flown by a Southwest pilot.

IWA is seeking an $18m federal grant to construct a new control tower. The current tower was constructed by the Air Force in the 70s, and is extremely outdated for the modern needs of the airport.

Most likely an A330 MRTT. Apparently there was an Australian RAF A330 there about six or eight weeks ago, but the RAF and Luftwaffe also operate them to various points in the US fairly often.

When will Envoy open up another E175 base? Currently, in 2019 there aren't any planned openings.

Southwest is in for a rude awakening once they have to compete head to head with the CS100/300s of their competitors. Neither 73G nor 7M7 will win against them.

The one aircraft where you do come across it frequently is the 757-300.The 'front end' 'must' leave last. Really?
