This - and worse - can happen at dozens of destinations TK flies to. Unfortunately, this is the reality in dozens and dozens of countries in the world.

Have probably said it every year for the past few years, but wish DL would bring back XNA-SLC. Loads more traffic than when they tried it ~10 years ago. Hoping they will once the airport reconstruction is winding down. To give them some credit, MSP times have gotten much better for XNA than they hav...Jump to post

How can you fault DL for asking? They are of course looking out for their own interest just like any other airline. They are a very successful business and run extremely well. Some people are just too emotional. Delta knew the rules. Don't agree to something if you don't like the terms. Would anyon...Jump to post
G4 uses a ramp at XNA, despite there being unoccupied/unbranded gates with bridges readily available. I've heard mixed messages if this is a normal occurrence for G4 though...so I apologize in advance if this their M.O. for their smaller stations.Jump to post
That isn't necessarily true, CVG-XNA/MKE/BNA were running for many years unprofitably, and were just now cut. After the merger they still were able to command a heavy fare premium from CVG flyers, but as more competition has entered the market ticket prices have plummeted for DL, hence routes like ...Jump to post
Is DL flying anywhere 1x with CR1/2? IMT for example is 3x. Thats 150 seats. Why not just cut frequency to 2x and use E70? That would give 138 seats, and unless those 3 flights are running at 100%, should be good. Ideally I would imagine they would like to axe CR2 all together so that they can be e...Jump to post
I am surprised to see 3 toilets on this thing The 717's have 3 as well. Why are 10D and 10E not Comfort+? From a space perspective, they likely are. Two seats in that general area seem to regularly be blocked from selecting them prior to the day of the flight. I believe they're reserved for handica...Jump to post
Tell ya what. I’ll help. You’re right. SeatGuru is wrong sometimes. It says the delta a321 is 31” pitch in Y.

It'd probably be a good thing to get that litigated and limit the "support" animals to actual trained service animals.

Lawandorder, Not really, No. not specifically comparing it to the Max plane for plane. Frankly, just comparing Delta’s a220 to the industry.

Okay, I know this happens a lot in the airline industry. You book a flight a few months out, on a particular aircraft type, and the aircraft type is changed before your flight. In this case, I had booked a flight on Delta LGA-BOS for April 2019 on the new A220. This flight was booked specifically f...Jump to post

Thanks as always enilria! AA going 2x XNA/LAX. With the Loiusville add and this, I wonder when they add MEM to LAX. XNA looks to have more or less 850K enplanements for 2018.

XNA? Really? I mean, let's just cut off a link for people shuttling back and forth to and from Wal Mart, Tyson Foods, University of Arkansas, and others. Great idea.

N668DN flew BNA-XNA yesterday and looks like N682DA will do the return.
I understand the plan behind the shift from EWR to IAD but I have some questions. Does the mean these airports will no longer be connected non-stop to NYC?

UA does their mods with HAECO at HKG. There's only so many aircraft that can be modded at the same time, with both the B763ERs and B772s being sent there.

LAX-TUL was there before I'm pretty sure. According to old threads on here they flew it for 2-3 years in the very early 2000s on an MD80. Seems like an aggressive plane for that route, but different times 18 years ago. Can't find any more recent reference than that on this board at least. G4 flies ...Jump to post
I do not think they look that bad and wonder about the various body types that they have to accomodate. I even like Lands End clothes.

I honestly don't loathe them as much as some do (but I'm not tall..5'7") with the exception of the window placement. Love to look out so they're brutal on the neck for me.
