What if an airport just shut down during construction. Like LGA. If you look at the construction calendar through all the different phases it extends to a decade. Thats 10 years and hundreds of millions of passengers negatively impacted over that span. Why not shut the airport entirely for 2 years a...Jump to post
Serious lack of competition on trans Atlantic flights, between all the JVs there is a cartelization of airlines and hence air fares ...which is often repeated here, but never backed up with numerical evidence. There's at least 43 airlines that operate transatlantic by my rough count... I think what...Jump to post

No, no and no. No hypersonic passenger planes, no blended wing airliners, no rocket planes straight out of The Man in the High Castle. Like it or not, we're stuck with tubes with two ever-more-efficient fanjets for as far as anyone can see. Development costs are just going to be too high to spread ...Jump to post

Man, NYC-BOM is going to have a lot of capacity now, especially if DL's plan is to fly JFK-BOM and not ATL-BOM (believe it is still undecided, but could be wrong). It could be 2x EWR-BOM and ~1.5x JFK-BOM. I think there's a clear sense that the ME3 foothold can be broken into quite a bit by overfly...Jump to post
Does anyone know why they brought it down? Did it run out of juice or was their specific test over?Jump to post
So what’s the deal with the names, do we know this guys actual name yet? In the audio the guy refers to the name Andrew, but obviously ATC is calling him Rich. His name was Richard "Beebo" Russell. He was an Operations Agent for Horizon. https://www.linkedin.com/in/beebo-russell-544730158...Jump to post
I agree with 1%.. or less each year. TBH the ME3 don't work for USA travelers. Wanna go to euro... can't. wanna go to South America? Cant. Wanna spend twice as long in a plane to Asia? Sure... ME3 only works for Africa/ Middle East/ India.... Thats it. I'll take a punt that most of America's int'l t...Jump to post
yea, wow that's too much energy for me. Kids would love it. But these briefings aren't directed at 10 and under children. Even in the video the adults are instructed to do the mask stuff for the child. So idk why they would position a video for an audience that isn't supposed to receive it.Jump to post
This is not confirmed, but this is word from a flight attendant that knows what they're talking about Mr Cooley and his travel partner were not booked together. One in premium, one not in premium. They sat together in the hopes the people actually ticketed in those seats wouldn't show up. When the ...Jump to post
“Alaska Airlines has a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination of any kind,” - This is an excerpt from their public statement.
Ok if you really do have a zero tolerance. Then fire the involved employee. If you say zero then mean zero. Zero = Zero.
As I said in DL/UA thread, those were great earnings. This week will be start of bad earnings. If you think this is bad, just wait for NK/AS/WN numbers to come out. Domestic fare index was down 6% this quarter and people are shocked that RASM are down with airlines. Any domestic focused and mostly ...Jump to post
It’s absolutely ridiculous if Boeing is still trying to figure out if there's a business case for an NMA. It's obvious to anyone with a pulse that a clean sheet NMA is badly needed and there is clear evidence for it. They will have years after the build the pax variant to sort out the logistics of ...Jump to post
I think the term is silly and meaningless outside of the US, with its scope clauses. In the US, it's anything that can be flown by a regional operator, generally with a maximum of 76 seats, and so the A220 is way too big to be a RJ. I think you summed it up pretty well. I'm not even sure the term i...Jump to post
The A220-300 is clearly considered to be a mainline aircraft since it is similar in seating capacity to the 737-700, A319, and 737 MAX 7. The A220-100 also has a greater seating capacity than the E-175 and CRJ 900 regional jets, and the A220-100 jets are considered to be small mainline jets like DC...Jump to post

I'm guessing Paris 2019. There are several articles out there nudging Boeing that launching it even tomorrow will be cutting it close. Launching a year from now makes this project a fantasy. Cutting it close to what? There are no set dates for anything yet. The latest I saw was talking about author...Jump to post

Looks like they milked the route for all it was worth before SQ came in. Maybe United will take a few customers with them.Jump to post

The huge victory of the 330 was Airbus taking advantage of the 787s years of delays and initial high cost of production. They sold hundreds. Most of us see that window has shut. That huge victory came at a price. A price they are paying right now. They could had spent that time launching the neo ea...Jump to post
I see relying on the ULR is out of the question. They have only 7. Considering that a minimum of 4 planes need to be in the air at any given time for 2 daily nonstops at 2 destinations, I don't see how they can add a third using the ULR. (1) that equation doesn't really work that way, and (2) even ...Jump to post
One point to consider is where in the US they believe they can fly the A350-900ULR to that will be served without Y already today. Is SQ willing to launch a brand new city without selling Y class on its own metal - in this case it will be new strategy for SQ. If not, then it will be only SFO or IAH...Jump to post

I cannot find the map with full details on AA flights where they switched to app only. You either get a progress bar going across the top of the gogo webpage, or a satellite map of the exact plane's location. but no altitude, airspeed, animations. nothing.... annoyingJump to post
JetBlue May want to be at LHR if/when TATL operations start (Although LGW/STN is more likely at this time). Unless B6 is getting widebodies, I don't see them "wasting" LHR slots on 321's TATL. Their MINT product is a pretty big moneymaker so I wouldn't jump to that conclusion. Offering a ...Jump to post
I agree with both assessments. I believe the tires are also maxed out too. It is non-trivial to upgrade at this point. I'm thinking it might not be worth the effort.
