Looks like Gensler and HDR for the airport with Luis Vidal on lead design. Reaaaaaally happy about the Luis Vidal part. MAD is a stunning airport.

The new livery and the MAX really work well together.Jump to post
Honestly, it's public perception that has to change, and the only stuff that works for that is sustained, heavy, and tightly orchestrated PR around improvements that fly in the face of cost-cutting everywhere else. First, they actually need to make these improvements in service, then talk about them...Jump to post
Anyone know why Condor has cancelled it last 2 FRA-PIT-FRA flights? On their website it says "operational reasons". Not that it tells you much. https://www.condor.com/us/flight-preparation/travel-advice/latest-travel-updates.jsp Flight cancellations for DE2082/DE2083 on 31 May and DE2098/...Jump to post

Looking at google flights, PIT-EWR on UA seems to bump from 7x to 9x daily starting in October. One of which is mainline on 737-7.
Quite a large gap between 2018 and the IAD 2019 lounge. Maybe they're just managing expectations, and things will actually be faster than this? Here's hoping. I just flew Polaris TPE-SFO on Tuesday (it was great), and thought I nailed experiencing the lounge, but our bags were delayed so long on arr...Jump to post
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
