Ignorant question, but just because they were NYC-based doesn't mean they lived in NYC, does it? Unless AS/VX worked unlike other airlines, it seems that a lot of the NYC-based crews for other airlines don't actually reside in NYC, they commute to NYC.Jump to post
I predicted this response. If I get stuck and don't get home, it impacts my job. Should I risk my job to support their raises? So you only support them if it's convenient to you? If not, you're happy to cross picket lines or give business to their competitors? Your words may say you support labor u...Jump to post

So much for supporting labor unions at Air France.
I support labor unions in general. In the case of AF, I don't know enough about the specifics of the dispute to offer an opinion on the actions of the unions or management, so I won't offer an opinion. But I can tell you, as a DL flier who travels to Europe several times I a year, I'm booking away f...Jump to post

Wow, I never realized the entire state has no commercial service.
Naples, FL (APF): AA Eagle to MIA? AA dropped RSW-MIA a few years back, and only brought it back for a couple of weeks during Christmas. I understand Naples area if rather affluent, but it's also 30 minutes closer drive to MIA/FLL than RSW is. If AA can't make the 'main' airport of the area (RSW) w...Jump to post
I have to say this makes sense, and seems like a smart move on the part of AS. VX was wise to jump on slots at limited airports when they did, because those are great assets, but VX never really knew what to do them without an east coast hub. AS, focusing on the west coast, is in the same boat. Good...Jump to post
*AA DCA-RSW AUG 1.0>0.6 SEP 1.0>0 OCT 1.0>0 NOV 1.0>0 DEC 1.0>0.4 Pretty sure this route is seasonal. No idea why they'd keep running it in August and then drop it for the Fall.

is american considering adding CLT and or DCA service at SWF? most other airports in the area have these routes, and SWF has capacity to expand, so I am not sure why they have such little service to major domestic airports. The airport definitely has the capacity but the demand just doesn't seem to...Jump to post
A week later, but for tomorrow’s storm (snow is expected from dawn until midnight in NYC), has any airline announced that it won’t pre-emptively cancel the entire slate of flights? A repeat of January’s meltdown isn’t needed again. By departures, cancellations for tomorrow as of 5:37pm ET: EWR 41% ...Jump to post

One could wonder if a joint proposal from American and Delta to end the perimeter rule at LGA combined with a slot swap, so that the slot share of American at LGA increases to the equivalent of United at EWR, while Delta moves most operations to JFK, wouldn't make sense. LGA is the preferred O&...Jump to post
From what I saw, Jetblue proactively canceled early because of the forecast. As of late Tuesday afternoon, Jetblue had already canceled 422 flights (41% of schedule) systemwide based on storm forecasts.Jump to post
I'm a bit confused as to what's going on at DUB now. It doesn't appear to have snowed in the last while, but nothing is landing. EI105 did recently take off, but the inbound EY41 has started circling over the Irish Sea, much like QR did before they diverted earlier. And UA 23 that went to BRU has no...Jump to post
Airport authority appears to be working to get the runways and taxiways cleared, but not departures/arrivals as of right now. EI100 (EWR), EI136 (BOS), EI104 (JFK), EI130 (BDL) all went to Shannon. Looks like ET504 (ADD) did as well. EY45 (AUH) has been circling for quite sometime near DUB. UA23 (EW...Jump to post
Never forget when i was stuck 4 days at LHR december 2010 because of 5 inches of snow.... I was in Stockholm trying to get home to the US when that ensued.

The only thing that has every bothered me about that video (not offended me, not even annoyed me, just thought it was a bad idea and a waste of time) was after the intro when the narrator says to follow her and she'll get us on our way and then we watch her just walk through a corridor for 15-20 sec...Jump to post
Not to say that there won't ever be an LAA 319 on that route from time to time, but it is actually scheduled as an LUS 319 as there is still a differentiation between LUS standard, LUS EOW, and LAA 319s. Is there a way to tell that when booking on AA's website, or is it info that is only available ...Jump to post
IF DL ever adds back JFK-Asia, it seems pretty certain it would be an ICN flight at this point, but with the KE JV imminent (if not already implemented?) DL probably doesn't feel the need. As convenient as the NRT flight was for me, I don't see it coming back with the continuing drawdown of the NRT ...Jump to post
It’s peak Presidents Day recess. Whole NE is off and in Florida. Probably not best time to look at FL frequencies as they will be at their highest now. To do a better comparison you should take a shoulder month and compare schedules. I imagine MCO for seats, LGA for flights. Eh, DL is pretty consis...Jump to post
Oh, sorry, I didn’t mean to put you on the defensive. The sarcasm comes natural with me, I’m afraid. It can be hard to tell with writing!

Delta VP Erik Snell is at the meeting and just announced the sky club. Most likely that was the "big announcement", very disappointing. Very disappointing indeed. Still interesting that DL would introduce a SkyClub with a sky deck at an out station. I'm still crossing my fingers that DL h...Jump to post
IF DL has some expansion plans for AUS, as I tend to think they do, it seems a bit early for them to announce them.

Very surprised JFK has gone this long with a big huge space where T3 used to be.

fly.faa.gov now shows estimated reopening times (subject to further changes) of 8pm ET for JFK and 6pm ET for LGA.
The JFK diversions are quite likely going to have process immigrations where they landed. Not sure those planes are making it to JFK today.
SIA going to SWF and Norwegian into ALB is piss poor planning by the airlines and/or incompetent captains. During a major snow storm, you want to divert to an airport that can handle both the aircraft and the people especially if the flight crew times out waiting for the weather to clear. SWF and A...Jump to post

I like how people knock RSW because it “can’t even have daily service to Europe”.

If b6 could secure enough gates, it would be the perfect mid america hub for them. I sure would like to see it as a crew base.
