In that youtube video, https://youtu.be/V3tDVAUTQdk?t=295 the AM E145. I search FR24 and Flightaware and only found one flight from MCI-GDL from 5/25. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/SLI8760/history/20180525/2217Z/MMGL/KMCI
What is the deal on this flight? Charter?
kind of late to ask this but does anyone know when the southwest fly by lane opens in the morning? Normally when security opens, unless they are are running the dog(s) up and down the general security line. Then they close it. I know ticket counter opens 90 minutes prior to first departure of the d...Jump to post
Why not use an airport that's underutilized like Mid-America Airport. Being in the Midwest you could reach most airports in the country, north mexico, & Canada. My that's my guess. Is it still open? Neeleman and his minions see STL/BLV as fly-over. Highly doubt BLV/STL will be served. BUT I hav...Jump to post

Strange that she would go to PAE for repairs etc. and then go to VCV to be retired. WN has 73G older than 18 years that are still flying. There was chatter (unconfirmed) that 772SW would be re-registered? Maybe going down to IAC @ VCV for some interior work and exterior paint? https://www.iac.aero/o...Jump to post

The good thing about the Caravan is that it's like a huge Cessna 172 - it flies slow. So if they went down under some control, there is a good chance of survival. Unlike at the speeds of high performance jet aircraft. Let's pray that is the case. Nature Air 9916 did not end up well. Looks like they...Jump to post

Pretty dire situation for CU. They have had a horrid first 5 months of 2018. Second to last paragraph says they have been behind in lease payments.
CUN goes back to daily on the newest WN update Is it seasonal or perm? That I don't know. I just noticed it daily again on the schedule. I could see it staying daily through March or April. It was daily for March this year. According to this, it is seasonal starting on 11/4 https://www.prnewswire.c...Jump to post

Soft bigotry of low expectations. That's all. According to who? WN has an amazing product and business model.

The LEFT gear was about 30 feet RIGHT of centerline when it hit. Plenty of room for an A330, 787, or 767...but you have to follow the yellow line.

Can someone help clarify why the AN-158s bought back in 2012, which are all grounded since April can’t get parts from Russia?

The AVHerald article shows the final crash site as pretty far off to the right with a sharp turn that would have had to be completed by about the middle of the runway.

Everyone is reporting a 737. Its likely leased/wet leas if its to Cubana. Other possibility is a charter to Florida.

Surely they have more work/inspections to do on 772SW, but the upcoming flightaware (taken with a grain of salt) shows flights planned starting tomorrow.
