It is good to see LATAM start to connect the dots, but if you asked me, all across the network they have routes just waiting to be served. From April 18 2018. LATAM Airlines Brasil in the preliminary schedule filing for Northern summer 2018 season filed Bolivia service, which would see the airline o...Jump to post
I suppose a 'double drop' ultimately is a bit quicker than a one stop connection, but would have been more appealing if direct and depends if a long winded triangle routing. Suppose we need to see if this ever comes to fruition given all the other rumours over the past few years. Hainan have a reas...Jump to post
Wow they are growing like crazy.
I predict Africa from HU within the next 2-5 years.
Even looking past my mild United bias, Coast is a terrible name. Maybe it is a bad attempt at courting millenials?Jump to post
“The Dash has served us well for years but we know that passengers prefer the regional jets and we want to provide the best service we can for American and for our customers,” Hogg said. Not this passenger...ah well. This passenger can't wait to be rid of the Dash-8. Oh where's your nostalgia? :D I...Jump to post

aren't they letting the ASSETS of AZ be bought rather than the airline as a whole? So might this be read as HU is interested in AZ's 32xs/330s/777s?Jump to post
Nesma Airlines of Saudi Arabia now shows up as North American Airlines. Kinda funny seeing a US flag on a Saudi domestic flightJump to post
Well, I don't think the perception that it's the taxes is really the cause. I recently flew on JetBlue from NAS to MCO one way. Ticket was $109, and taxes were $113.99. Taxes were about 50/50 US/Bahamas (US puts all its taxes for immigration etc on arrival; Bahamas has big departure taxes). Point i...Jump to post
He kinda took the one remaining high-fare O/D (almost)-monopoly and made it an AS hub. Where else could he start an airline of any decent size in the US?Jump to post
If the commonality between the a359 and a339 is pretty good, why wouldn't they operate two smallish fleets (15 a359s + 15 a339s) of each and they could cover broader part of the market. I know this is unlikely given the 787s but Airbus fans are allowed to dream too. Delta did 25+25 right? Maybe not...Jump to post
Nicest thing in my opinion with this is how it affects the upgrade system. In order to upgrade into J/F, you have to have purchased a W seat, so you can no longer buy the cheapest ticket and upgrade from that. Given the only reason I think it's nice is because it makes it easier for employees to ge...Jump to post
My guesses for the seating config: A330-200: W replaces some Y rows. J stays the same 777-200ER: W replaces 8 J seats on the 45J version, W replaces some Y+ rows on the 37J version. 772 fleet standardized on 37J 777-300ER: W replaces 8 J seats and some Y+ rows 787-8: W replaces 8 J seats and some Y...Jump to post
The timeframes have been announced and wow they are planning it fast: From OMAAT: "...as pointed out by JT Genter at The Points Guy, during today’s Merrill Lynch 2017 Transportation Conference, American outlined the timeline during which they plan on adding premium economy to their longhaul fle...Jump to post
WOuldnt they also need airspace permission? Making this kinda unviable?Jump to post
AS has the digi players which fit right into the recaro seats. Everyone under 60 has their own device. I haven't see the DigiPlayer for a while. I was under the impression it had been phased-out. I believe they've replaced the old DigiPlayers with more modern tablets, but they serve pretty much the...Jump to post
This is pure, uninformed speculation on my part, but if B6 were to go the route of wide bodies, I'd think the A330neo would be the way they would go. There's probably a decent amount of parts commonality with the A320, and I wonder if Airbus could offer better pricing versus the 787-9. Regardless o...Jump to post
With vegas being pushed farther and farther down the line, I doubt that this is the date GIG will actually startJump to post

Quite a boost from the 320.

Thanks as always!
Anyone else surprised that Aer Lingus is moving capacity away from New York? It looks like they are taking some flights and throwing them to Miami instead
CLT-LAS next? American charges over $400 for the nonstop most of the time and their little CLT station does wonderfully from what I've heard. They could skim the bottom of AA's flights (and maybe lower the costs of the AA ones for the rest of us)Jump to post
A few reasons: Historically, they have always been a second carrier at DEN, but within within past 5-10 years WN has exploded in Denver and taken a bunch of ince-loyal Denver pax. The switch to ULCC also alienated many F9 Pax. When the Midwest merger happened, they looked further out of Denver and F...Jump to post

I agree, but 3hrs on a CR9 though? I think MIA-HOU should be added as well with an E175
Don't really see an issue. 30" is common and carriers like United, BA and even good old Lufty offer it (even in J in Europe) on 320/737 series aircraft. The back 3 rows will probably only be filled with Basic economy anyway, so unless you book über cheap fares, you won't need to worry. Don't se...Jump to post
