Clearly this is just a collection of international destinations; wonder what their national impact is if (im assuming) $150 million is going to international.Jump to post

What does this thread think of SFO's 4-crossed runways?
It seems kinda pointless, like if the 4 runways were separated they could operate somewhat independently. Right now its always a massive traffic jam with really only 1 or 2 runways in active use at a single time.
Their bullet rail network is nearing completion. They just linked Guangzhou and Beijing. So I would assume that because of the prominence and quality of these trains that share would be taken away from airlines in general. But then again there are more people there than anywhere so maybe the economi...Jump to post

Maybe Haneda... They have been opening that airport up more and more to foreign traffic. Also the 2020 olympics will add a nice spike to numbers.Jump to post
I get that SW will never go out of the 737 type, but why not diversify within the type? Like pick up 737-10, and 9... in addition to the 7, 8. There would be no impact to the pilots, or cabin crew. Maybe a small impact to the route planners cause now their job requires.... work... Cant just send the...Jump to post
The fuel capacity of the 777x is 52k vs 48k gallons. Yet with this extra fuel it only flies 200nm further... The range isn't simply determined by the maximum fuel capacity (even though it could be a limiting factor at times). it is rather determined by the payload/range chart for a specific payload...Jump to post
Anyone compare and contrast the 777 and 777x on wikipedia. Im looking it over and Im finding inconsistencies. The fuel capacity of the 777x is 52k vs 48k gallons. Yet with this extra fuel it only flies 200nm further... Then there is the overall seating capacity. The 777x is 4meters longer yet the 3-...Jump to post
Has anyone looked at SQ 23. I know, I know different route. But look at this, it seems that they are using the old 345 like half the time for this route, but only this route. The way there (SQ22) is always 359. Anyone know why this is happening? Im assuming is cause they don't have the metal yet to...Jump to post

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.

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...

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.

“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.
