Airlines have Ops Specs. Typically, the charts will only include the airports that the airline is authorized to land at. If PBC is not an authorized C70 Ops Spec airport, it isnt likely to be included in the charts. Under normal operations, it is not legal to land where you are not authorized. Not ...Jump to post
Bruh it’s got 4 parallel runways and it’s almost always VFR.Jump to post
I can appreciate an airport being full, but I would think if anything they could have accommodated an extra plane, even if it meant parking it on a remote area. Again, I would think? If it comes down to it the captain will firmly inform atc where they will be landing. Captain must have been okay to...Jump to post
Don't know about EK itself, but in typical airline mgmt, the short list would start at the Chief Pilot, then down the Dilbert Table of Organization. [/humour] Huh in most airlines the chief pilot has hardly a say in things like this. It will come from the top level and be mandated. The chief pilot ...Jump to post
It Appears that Horizon is being put into place to support the secondary cities on the West Coast so that AS can saturate the major cities. Especially now that they've settled on the E175's. Just wondering though, Were the Airplanes Delivered CAT1 Only? UAX's E175's were delivered CAT3 capable. Tha...Jump to post
Apparently LAX had 33 million O&D passengers in 2017 and was 38% O&D. https://www.forbes.com/sites/tedreed/2018/02/22/the-airport-business-is-booming-fitch-says-as-lax-jfk-and-vegas-lead-nation-in-local-traffic/#4b73bbb87966 Pretty shocked to see LAX be only 38% O&D.

As for SAN to MMH, I wonder if it would have worked seasonally? The service has run for the last few years from mid-December until about mid-April. LA-MMH ran year-round. Sad to see MMH go away! Definitely more of a seasonal market. The airport leaders had be reviewing expanding the Runaway. Last y...Jump to post
I always thought MMH would do really well from so cal, but it seemed to struggle and was never a run away hit. The demand seemed too day of week or inconsistent for Horizon/alaska type scheduling. Seasonally it did do really well and some days, but others it was pretty empty too often. JetsuiteX ca...Jump to post

Not at all. Their 737s are Cat 3. They fly in Alaska.

I feel bad for these guys. Local or east coast based. It was rumored. True, but with the worldwide shortage of pilots they will find reemployment easily, correct? Unless you were hired recently, maybe 5 years at the most, there is no way you would give up seniority for location. Deadheading 6 hours...Jump to post
Facts please? UA 232 (multiple fatalities) was a 3 holer. QF 32 was a 4 holer; BA 9 (speedbird 9) was a 4 holer....in all these cases i doubt that the outcome would have been any different regardless of whether it was a 2 holer, 3 holer of 4 holer. Of course, UA 232 is a little bit different (the f...Jump to post
The DPRK didn’t have issue leasing the current four Tu-204 and An-148 via the Russian. They will do the same. They get money from coals, minerals, etc... Yeah.

But as NZ authorities discovered recently, you do need a driver's licence to drive a truck. And a driver's licence should involve a bit more than 'buying one on the internet'.
I have wondered the same thing for a different reason. Since security in the US scans your boarding pass, I have wondered exactly what is that hooked up to? For example if my flight canceled but I have boarding pass in hand and want to go through security and deal with a new boarding pass at a gate...Jump to post
Flying credentials are fine. CAA verified that. Degrees were found fake that were submitted at the time of induction into the Airline. I am not comfortable with that, I know of airlines looking to employ people from some geographic areas where there seems to be systemic issues with the way licences...Jump to post

Bear with me. KEF has enjoyed huge success as a Trans-Atlantic connecting point between Europe and North America.

Aren’t the delta charter planes configured? Chances are it was just sitting at JFK for 3 days during the series. Possible, but usually the charter birds (assuming they use the NBA planes for MLB) ferry empty to another city for another charter rather than sit for that long. I just spent the winter ...Jump to post
I know that charter customers have their choice of airports, and I'm sure they prefer to use LGA, but I wonder why DL didn't just offer them a discount to use their JFK facility. It must have cost quite a lot to orchestrate their LGA repo flight. I wonder if they offered to pass the savings on to t...Jump to post

Higher? A quick look at Flightaware.com reveals that a lot of the 737-800's are cruising at FL370 and FL380, with a few at FL410. Ditto for the MAX 8, and the 737-700s are, as a group, cruising a bit higher than the 800's. Other than possibly a Concorde or 747-SP, can you name another plane from th...Jump to post
