8 hour 1 leg should still be legal for a single crew. You can get additional time by adding a 3rd pilot to the flight deck, but rest is not required.Jump to post
Asking this out of curiosity. Would it have been financially feasible to retro-fit these two frames to mimic their current fleet rather than having them sit dormant for four months? I know WN does this with planes they have acquired from other airlines/lessors. Thought I'd pose the question for the...Jump to post

ANC-Japan is too far for most narrowbodies, and doesn't have the traffic to justify widebody service. There are really no highly populated/trafficked cities in between. In that context the reason why there are no links becomes more clear. 757 shouldn't have a problem. It does not help that neither ...Jump to post
The contract of carriage gives the airline the right to remove passengers. If they are wrong, legal redress may be had. At that point the not so good doctor was a trespasser. Additionally, anytime a passenger is non-compliant with the flight or cabin crew, they are a safety risk and need to be remo...Jump to post
Just stating what's on the website. ;) I think it is odd ANC doesn't have a year-round Japan link, but that is for a different thread.

It's their summer seasonal flight to ANC. A whopping 13 flights a year! :) Does any one know how Yakutia does on these flights and their performance overall? I saw one of their SSJs sitting on a remote spot in ICN and figured there has to be better utilization than that for that plane. I just did a...Jump to post

Did anyone else happen to notice the routemap in the link at the top of this post? Should we be expecting DAL-DEN/ATL/ORD/BOS/ ANC next? (I can't figure out how to attach a pic of the routemap). DALANC is over 3000 miles. Maybe a through flight through SEA to ANC. I think well see ANCSFO at some po...Jump to post
This is the worst thing that I have ever heard. If the man was actually a doctor and had patients he had to see, he shouldn't have been taken off the plane. It sucks that they grabbed him off the plane forcefully and made him passed out. The actions that were done were over the top, and straight up...Jump to post
I understand the practice but when it is the last flight of the day maybe it should be modified because peoples schedules can also be perishable. Tugg 1. This wasn't the last flight of the day. If it wasn't the last flight of the day, why didn't the 4 crew who came late get moved to a later flight?...Jump to post
From my personal experience on the E190 once while flying from MSLP to MMMX they had to leave many baggage behind because of weight and balance issues, I even recall some of the heavier pax had to be moved to business class in order to be able to take off BS no airline that operates Jets uses actua...Jump to post

You may be surprised to learn that hotels do overbook rooms, and for various reasons, do "bump" guests. Oh, and you might also be surprised to learn, there are no federal protections against that. So, in fact, the airlines have something to learn from the hotels, from your slant! The abov...Jump to post
I always laugh at those suckers that pay 3x more than everyone else thinking they will be getting a "Business Class" seat, only to find out it is essentially the same seat. 3 inches extra leg room and no one between you on a 737 is not worth the extra few hundred dollars. Especially if it...Jump to post
I know that United did not do this in an appropriate manner-dragging a doctor off a plane is, well, indefensible. But, overbooking is a common practice in the airline industry. Overbooking makes money on seats that do not exist. What else can the airline do? Personally, I think a simpler solution w...Jump to post

Only pedantic avgeeks care whether or not the image used is of a United A320 instead of a FedEx plane. I doubt non-avgeek FedEx users don't give a damn. You realize you're on a pedantic avgeek website, right? Yet as been stated in this thread it's definitely possible your package could wind up on a...Jump to post

Leasing direct from Boeing might just be the right way to do it, too.

Within the last few days? Seems odd that it would have moved so close in, not even a months notice, let alone a week.
All of the "VX type pax" have tablets and large phones. Give me a break on AVOD. The only people that need AVOD are poor folks that travel a few times a decade. Free streaming to device is better.Jump to post

I wonder: (i) what share of the profit on VS' LHR/SEA service goes to its partner DL? (ii) how much the up-gauge on that route is due to Sir Richard's being miffed at the debranding of VX? (iii) did AS' scenario analysis foresee the acquisition of VX promoting VS/DL growth at SEA? Delta's ownership...Jump to post
I don't know how Hawaiian cycles around their A330s between pax and charter operations, but it's possible HA could downguage OAK and upgauge LAS. That's perhaps the only tangible effect I could possibly fathom with the Raiders move. And that's a stretch. Aside from that, I think OAK will only grow....Jump to post
A coupe of thoughts on this: 1. The culture of Hawaii when it comes to air travel has been always driven by the idea that transportation between the islands should be both cheap and quick. Jet travel between the islands, when first introduced in the 1960's, was touted as modernizing the state, brin...Jump to post
Only one LCC flies to HNL from the US Mainland and only from one airport, G4 from LAS Not anymore. Allegiant discontinued HNL service in Nov 2016.

Flew WOW one trip. They should rename it NON, because that's the level of attention the pax got. FI is great however. Don't forget that WOW air is a LCC where Icelandair is a legacy carrier. That makes all the difference in the world. In service, but in price too. You get what you pay for. 1 fleet ...Jump to post

Look, what this forum and United is missing is that this whole thing isn't really about pass rules or anything along those lines.

Well done UA! I've seen it once(PVG-AMS), that a crew member flew on ID90 dressed in sweats, disregarding the company rules.

The good thing about Dino Juice is that as the airplane flies, it gets lighter.
