Yeah, I'm quite surprised myself, has MCO-AMS/CDG not been tried before?

I can only comment on a couple of Continents: North America: Best: Atlanta. The linear layout of the concourse buildings, combined with the ease of using the 'Plane Train' means that no other airport comes close.

So basically, he doesn't want to be burdened with the cost of owning it, maintaining it, etc. Easy way to dump it and be heralded as a generous hero because of his celebrity status.

At the end of June AA will turn off SABRE as it finishes its transition to USAir's QIK system. I think this is a HUGE mistake. There was nothing wrong with SABRE. The new system is NOT QIK at all. Its slow, tedious, confusing, and makes no sense. It takes nearly 2-3x as long to accomplish many task...Jump to post
I don't think there's a lot of people at Boeing worrying about this. They still have the 797 designation to use. Looking at when airplanes were first introduced into service: 787 - 2011 777 - 1995 767/757 - 1982/1983 747 - 1970 737 - 1966 727 - 1962 707 - 1957 Over history that's an average of a ne...Jump to post

Of course, and if you work with the auto industry DL helps you get to Detroit. But the whole point is that, on average, AA has a more appealing basket of hubs for the O&D passenger than does DL. DL also suffers from not having a true hub within 500 miles of BOS. What do you consider JFK and/or ...Jump to post

I realize the DL Fan Boys are excited, but lets see what the response from UA and AA is. We all know they are not going to let those 'boys from the South' infringe on their territory.

Why hate it? Now that DL has seen the suggestion on A.net, their route planning people will say, "Duh, why didn't we think of starting DTW-MNL and DTW-HKG?"

Typical calculated move by Delta to keep it members from organizing. Hopefully we're smart enough not fall for it. Yes, turn the money down and don't accept any future increases. That will show how smart are. How about if we march and burn up our increase . Grab the pitchforks and torches. We will ...Jump to post
For those of you who may not know, American Airlines' (Formerly U.S. Airways') route between Philadelphia and Amsterdam is operated by a Boeing 757-2B7 both ways at all times.

What is United's strategy with ordering the 777-300ER AND A350-1000? I know the 777 beats the A350 on cargo capacity, but other than that, the airframes are pretty equal in terms of performance and sheer size. We all know the 77W will be predominately EWR based, with the A350 replacing the 747, but...Jump to post
