As a passenger service agent for a GHA, I would see stuff being shipped/cargoed over. On their flight of course. Things such as barriers as well as any airline stationary such as rolls of bag tags, boarding passes, pajamas etc... if the airline ever ended service, they would ask for the stuff to be...Jump to post

If this made sense delta could do it today with a 757. Perhaps they could, but DL has built up enough feed into SEA to fill widebodies. In the case of ANC, it would be a much smaller operation. As an aside, Anchorage's metro area population is about twice that of Reykjavik's metro area, which means...Jump to post
Kind of interesting that a brand-new Airbus has a pressurization issue requiring a ferry flight all the way from upstate NY to the East Coast maintenance base. Happens all the time. Could be an indicator or a seal. Anyways on some aircraft you can defer pressurization and fly at 10k with passengers...Jump to post

Allegent didn’t even have the balls to defend themselves in the segment. Also they had the actual data compared to other airlines. Hate to break it to you but AA and DL had MD fleets during that period and all the majors have 757s and don’t have nearly as many issues. The thing about aviation people...Jump to post
Why can't SY where USA airport can't go to MSP for cancel flight. Why can't SY fly ferry to Los Cabos to pick it up? SY can fly to MSP close nearby like RST or DBQ or DSM stay there for a few hours or overnight then snow is clear up fly back to MSP that's it. How stupid SY management are? Q No room...Jump to post
Horrendous service by SY if true. If you cancel your last flight of the year due to WX, add a friggen extra.Jump to post
E175 is more comfortable than a 737!Jump to post
How much more can UA grow in Denver? Plus thinking about Salt Lake City expanding airport, they can compete more successfully against Denver. SLC expansion or not, the DEN metro area is 2 times larger than SLC. That means, at a minimum double the O&D potential. Not to mention that COS, a city o...Jump to post

Have two seemed a little much. One widebody should be plenty. Even for an NFL team. And when their one plane goes on MX, then what? It's not like DL, AA, and UA can get them a widebody at a moment's notice. I actually have to agree with lavalampluva, especially now that I know they can't use them f...Jump to post
They go to other hubs and to larger destinations or longer flights. The large planes come in and feed like dozens of smaller regional flights. The plane could go IND-DTW-LAX-JFK-DTW they are just always on the move. And then the inbound regional jet flights that feed it come from smaller cities tha...Jump to post
Great Lakes could have in no way afforded the PC-12. They could barely keep their fleet aloft as it was. None of their aircraft had GPS and at least the 1900s did not have autopilot. Air Traffic Control would constantly have to vector aircraft for shortcuts. If you cannot afford GPS, how could you ...Jump to post

Maybe they are just taking the decals off for the off season so they can just charter it as a white tail.Jump to post

I don't understand how Contour will make money with the plane sitting at OAK for eight hours a day. I understand the first few flights are sold out. Border Coast Regional Airport Authority is the one that needs to worry about filling planes. It is chartering the aircraft from Contour, so Contour sh...Jump to post

Well CEC dodged a bullet, as ZK was one of the airlines that had applied for the EAS contract after PenAir pulled the plug. On paper it looked good, with flights to SMF in the EMB-120, with interline ticket and baggage agreements, but I knew they'd fail at some point. And here it is: "Ceasing&...Jump to post

Down the line, I could see a fleet matrix of 737 MAX 8, 737 MAX 10 (where capacity matters more than range), and A321neo. The question is what will be on the current 737-700 routes. Either 800s or E175s. With the high costs of horizon I wonder if AS would ever consider The new larger E Jets The Emb...Jump to post
My opinion - this does not bode well for the future of the Airbus at Alaska. It sounds a lot like the 400’s with management “finding” routes that could support the 400. Put another way, where can we put these airplanes so they do the least damage to profitability. Alaska needs the lift for now, but...Jump to post
I think you fundamentally have no idea how efficient mint is as a platform. Not having free upgrades, cheap upgrades for elites and lounge access amongst other things really level the costs. Outside of maybe BOS-SEA which is just starting off, every other route is raking money in. Thanks to mint, e...Jump to post
Would passengers pay 6/5 = 1.2x or 20% more to sit in such a config? They'd have to, in order to make the economics work. You'd also have to redesign the bins, floor structure & seat mounting, and probably re-do a bunch of certification and evac testing... mega dollars, tens of millions if not ...Jump to post

I heard that the CVR/FDR loops over every 2 hours. Even if they found this plane on day 1, we still wouldn't know what happened on the flight deck when he first changed course...
