Thanks for posting this ... I'll cross AA off of my list of options for travel to LAX. Ehh. Unless if you're connecting from somewhere, if you live/are going somewhere right by either airport, or if it's significantly cheaper, it's not really worth the hassle to fly LAX-SFO. For straight SoCal-Bay ...Jump to post
You can use/get AA miles on AS* VX flights. Just saying. Don't believe so, not quite yet. I do not believe reciprocal FF earn/burn between AA and Alaska has extended to Virgin flights yet - I think that is coming on 1 January when Virgin's FF program is folded into Alaska's. They all have AS flight...Jump to post
Fuel leak or fuel came out of the overflow vent? Still bad move on united. Everyone should be accommodated after a mechanical. I find it hard to believe there was no one giving vouchers to the hundreds on board.Jump to post

You'd think WN would be all over that. Maybe AS will after dropping BLI AS does 10 a day from SEA, only 3 from PDX. Frontier would be good too. Did they used to fly it? I notice a lot that AS needs to start just moving more flights to PDX. They could flow some of that vegas through PDX from points ...Jump to post

I'm impressed at the amount of aircraft the -10 has managed to rack up, I only expect that to increase as UA will most definitely convert orders and maybe even AS, AC and other airlines who only have the MAX 8 on order like Jet Airways who was rumored to be in talks. I bet AS is going to be all ove...Jump to post
Braniff1 wrote:Is there any airport, US that is worse than LAX for entering customs? It is a 3rd world experience; very inefficient.
The ironic thing is that PA could have slowly moved into the US domestic market as a result of airline deregulation (1978) without paying for the routes and not having to pay millions to acquire another carrier. PA like never had any money so I doubt they could have gotten all the leases and stuff ...Jump to post

Weird cus it's pretty much sold out in Y the next week LAXHAV Good, I'm happy for Alaska - genuinely. But I still think it's on the bubble long-term, and probably more so than any remaining U.S. carrier/route into HAV.

No one seems to remember that AS flies daily LAX-HAV. Ha, I definitely didn't remember it! My apologies. Although I must admit - among the airlines, and routes, left between the U.S. and HAV, I'd say Alaska to LAX is probably now the weakest link.

Checked baggage has all sorts of costs. Because we breathe while onboard, that has all sorts of costs. Because we use the lavs, that has all sorts of costs. Unbundle everything.

At 230 pax, it may be worth it to hire the fifth FA. However, I'm surprised that Ryanair didn't consider the 739ER in a 200-seat configuration, with 20 premium seats and 180 standard seats (standard in 30"/17")...that way one can carry more people and it's still only 4 flight attendants. ...Jump to post

I have a feeling that the EAS for the PDX-CEC route is probably helping keep the other KS markets (PDX-OTH/LMT/RDD/ACV) at least partially afloat. They could all dry up if the EAS route went away. Reliability is the other key component, however, and that still seems to elude KS. Today, with that fr...Jump to post

It is obviously going to happen, it's just a question of when. I think 225 seats and 4500nm range is the sweet spot, and Boeing would need to guard against overbuilding it.
