To me, DL's seeming inability to make HKG isn't really a shock. Up until CX introduced BOS and AA introduced DFW, HKG was only served from the largest US cities/financial centers. UA (and CO with respect to EWR) was historically strong in those markets, DL was not. As DL builds up LAX, maybe they'll...Jump to post
The old ATH had no air bridges, so all boarding and deplaning was via stairs. FCO and MXP both used stairs for widebodies back in 1990 when I flew through. I don't know what the situation is like today, but back then, most of AZs 742s at FCO were parked at remote stands. In fact, I only recall seein...Jump to post

With those points in mind, exactly what are the values of the 87% of republicans that are causing them to support Trump? Pwning the libs. It's all about pwning the libs.

Such antisocial behavior. I can't believe he'd bully that baker. Caker, OA412. Mere bakers can be bullied.

Awww, feelings were hurt? Well, certainly that's legally actionable in the snowflake century. Give me a break. Yeah, we've all been hurt. That's part of life. You deal with it.

Wonder if they're looking to improve the DEN runway diagram which currently looks similar to a swastika. I doubt you are going to see any changes to the runway configurations, given their current design was part of the deal to give the land to Denver to build the airport. If Denver International of...Jump to post
So is DL adding IFE to all 320s they plane to keep? I know some 320s I have bookings with this year don't have IFE. As far as brand consistency, this is why I tend to book towards DL and away from AA. Sorry but for 4 hour flights I don't want to worry about finding a power port for my own device. T...Jump to post
I know that DL is retiring the oldest A320s in the fleet, but certainly some of those being retained and refurbished are at or above 20 years. As others have noted, if properly maintained, they can remain in the fleet many more years. I recently flew a pair of refurbished A320s DEN-LGA-DEN (the vers...Jump to post

People are increasingly losing it. To punch a pregnant woman and a dog is just cowardly. Growing up, our neighbors had Great Danes.

As others have noted, it's not uncommon for a hail storm to be that concentrated. We see them here in DEN all the time. How often do these storms happen?

As I understand it, the A350 is not coming to SEA for awhile. Is that correct? You can probably guess what type of equipment I prefer, but the A350 sounds like a nice ride.

Gender can be a choice. And religion isn't a choice for many people either. You're brought up and indoctrinated into it from birth, like gender.

It shouldn't be treated any differently. The hypocrisy is the way its allowed by the moderators even though its openly mocked with bigoted language. If users here talked about race or gender and used language like they do with religious people they'd be banned. Race and gender are not a choice. Rel...Jump to post

Even if all these events comes out unfavorably against Trunp I don't think it would cause his president term to be shortened as his supporters doesn't seems to mind them Whether his supporters don't mind is irrelevant if he's indicted for breaking the law.

Also, why the hell would Hannity hire Cohen? Cohen is a crap lawyer, and Hannity is certainly not short of money with which to hire a competent lawyer.

The Asia Pacific airlines had only full passenger 744 because the distances they fly to America and Europe, When Boeing offered the 747-8 no combi was offered. That is incorrect.

To reiterate what others have already noted, the FBI did not "break in." A federal judge signed the warrant. The concept of attorney-client privilege has not been placed in jeopardy by this raid.

I concur with much of what Tenaja85 said. Great big windows allow for good spotting opportunities. I would definitely go to A concourse to catch all the TATL flights and other airlines.

As others have alluded to, they have a very strong position in the DEN-DC market with their 3 daily flights to DCA v. UAs 1 daily flight.

I'm in the minority here, but I've loved the new LH livery from the very beginning. Yes it does hark back to some older liveries, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
