Just boarded today's SFO flight and it is a full plane. Seems like the new schedule is a hit? Can't remember any of the red eyes being even close to that previously. Full flights are good though everything depends on ticket prices. I'm on WN to LAX next Friday so I'll see how the loads are there. I...Jump to post
I would think the 787 would be an ideal aircraft for this market. If DL kept the order for that airplane, I could see a year-round flight to CDG flight. Cheaper to fly than a 767. BA started daily LHR-AUS service with a 787 but has since changed to a 777 due to demand. Maybe we could work up to a 7...Jump to post
At my home airport PIT, up until 2016 we had a DL 752 to CDG on a seasonal basis. So far for 2018 we will have: DL 763 to CDG (seasonal) DE 763 to FRA (seasonal) WW A320neo/A321 to KEF QR 77F to LUX Hopefully I can catch the QR 77F again but unfortunately it arrives very early in the morning and it...Jump to post
She didn't actually say "flights to India". She said that Indian traffic is increasing, and that traffic goes through the gulf hubs. 4-5 years away for ME3 seems sooner than previously mentioned, right? Alaska seems to be hitting the ground running. Briefly met a team of them today already...Jump to post

Not to be be negative here because I, too, am a resident of Pittsburgh and love it here, but why would any airline waste a valuable LHR slot by running a flight to PIT? The biggest plane we could probably fill across the pond would be a 752, which seems unlikely to compete with a widebody from any ...Jump to post
Quite the contrary. CLE is the perfect city-type for a 787. The Cleveland economy has many far reaching places with which it has demand--such as Abu Dhabi, China, Tokyo, for example. These places are beyond the reach of a 757 and the route likely could not fill an 777 or A340, but is the perfect ex...Jump to post

The fact that this is even a situation that is happening is ridiculous. Also speaks to the insane grip that the NRA has on this country.Jump to post
There is either a glitch or a fare war situation going on PIT<->SFO both ways this morning. Most UA flights, including the non-stops are $90-100 round trip all year long.

Southwest issues that many FF do not like: 1. No opportunity for automatic upgrades to first class - yes, it may not be big but it is a huge deal if one travels almost every week 2.

Could Pittsburgh’s resurgent airport be the key to landing Amazon’s HQ2?

TA321NEO LR could be a good fit to replace 757 on the NY-UK routes at least. If UA don't use a B767/787 on EWR-MAN, I could see an attempt to replace the B752 with A321LR and link MAN with other UA hubs like ORD and IAD (again). The 737MAX can fly EWR-MAN. The longest 737-8 route announced so far i...Jump to post
That yellow addition on the tail looks good, but needs to be a little more of a deep goldenrod, like their logo:
I actually really dig what they've done with the tail. Especially how they kept a strip of white on the leading edge of it. Keeping some yellow somewhere would have been nice though. They could have mimicked the angle of the blue stripe on the engines or something. If that strip you describe were y...Jump to post

AA would drop PHL pricing in a second. I'd love to see DL take on AA to PHL, but I think it they would have to make the internal commitment to be in it at loss-leader pricing for the long term, because AA would not make it easy. Fortunately, I think local pax are finally aware that there are other ...Jump to post
I was curious if WW and FI starting CLE would have an affect on WW's PIT flights. Checking the blocked off seats on PIT-KEF on every flight the week before May 4 (the day CLE-KEF starts on WW) shows about 40 seats selected per flight on average. Checking every flight the week after May 4 it remains...Jump to post

Good lord .. 8 hours crammed in a high density A321 .. no thank you.
