Overall, I do see DL continuing to make small adds here and there at BOS. It looks like they'll be slightly over 100 departures a day by September with the already announced additions of AUS, MCI, JAX, and ORF. I could see DL adding the following destinations: FCO - summer seasonal, would complemen...Jump to post

One of the high rollers that partnered up to start Air California was C. Arnold Smith, big honcho of Westgate California. I'm wondering if this was his private aircraft, that he painted the livery of Air California on. He went onto to own the San Diego Padres both when they were members of the Pacif...Jump to post
1967 - Air California first two electra's had foreign registrations. Here is a link to an Air California Electra from Qantas with a VH registration. Note the difference in the tail.

Is VX the only operator at MCO? I hardly ever make it out there I prefer TPA since I work there obviously. I don't really remember seeing any 747's there except for virgins.

I served in the early 1970's and I for one is really tired of these current active duty service members with their entitled mentality.

Trump is not dealing in reality, thinking this will be a short investigation. Mueller, Comey, and Rosenstein have all worked together in the past, so if I was Trump I would be uncomfortable. It appears to me, that Rosenstein doesn't trust the GOP leadership in Congress by not giving them a heads up ...Jump to post

PHX is certainly a big US without any transoceanic international flights (save BA) - but that is because of the poor quality of its population base. The city has relied on retirees and snowbirds far too much for economic expansion; as opposed to building a vibrant economy that can fill seats up fro...Jump to post

Speaking of PenAir, The (CEC) Border Coast Regional Airport Authority renewed KS's EAS contract for another two years in the CEC-PDX market. I don't know if that needs to be blessed with DOT's holy water on a renewal (as with the original assignment) or if this is complete with the local authority....Jump to post
Who is Neiltown Air? Are they subbing for KS? That's an additional, confusing item. Both PEN and NLA flights appear in the airport schedules. PEN now shows "Owner Unknown". NLA decodes as PenAir with Neiltown as the owner. But neither set of flights updates progress in FlightAware and Fli...Jump to post

[ I arrived on a 12AM flight PHX-MKE last year and the airport was indeed dead at that time. It was weird walking through a dark airport.

In the 70's, there were tons of lights between midnight and say 06:00. DL and EA has significant banks of flights around 01:00 at ATL.
