The flight was by Republic Airlines, not United mainline but then nobody would take the click bait if the headlines said Republic now would they? That's an important point that it actually wasn't United, but with a video showing that, I'm pretty sure it would've gone viral regardless of the carrier.Jump to post
Yeah, someone's getting fired and/or sued for that.Jump to post
If had to make a bet for either UA or DL, it'd be for A321N at some point down the road...but a lot could happen in 5 years.Jump to post
If it's dark all the way, that's a different situation and naturally nobody would be disturbed. I was referring to red eye flights where the sun comes up a few hours prior to arrival.Jump to post
For me it's B6 hands down. The mint A321s are very comfortable and modern.
I was very much looking forward to my JFK-LAX trip last year on a DL 763, but I felt really squished on that old bird.
I always sit at the window; I tend lower it almost all the way as the altitude gets higher since there's usually not much to see. I think keeping down at least partially is the courteous thing to do especially if there's in-seat IFE. I figure it's easier if I want to raise it a bit on occasion for a...Jump to post
NK, WN, B6, and G4 are very different airlines, with different customers. I think they can coexist for a while.
You could argue it's really more of a WN vs. B6 and NK vs. G4 situation.
So a couple of days ago, I flew on a newly configured B6 A321, full flight with 200 passengers. However I am certain there were only 3 flight attendants. They were very overwhelmed, and unable to accomplish any of the basic service tasks like coming around to pick up trash, offer water etc. Aren't t...Jump to post
I think we'll see at least one other carrier at some point opt for for 2-4-2 in Y.
Also, many 3-3-3 Dreamliners are 2-3-2 in the last couple of rows; I always go for those seats when available as they have lots of extra space.

Hopefully DY will do what they can to prevent something like this from happening again.
I'm a big fan of the Dreamliner as well. I've flown on AM & DY 788 and was very impressed with both. We actually made it from JFK-LGW in under 5 1/2 hours. I found the way that the window tint makes it a great deal easier to sleep during the day. "Dreamwhiners" will abound, complaining...Jump to post
I find it strange as some airlines that claims there self as "premium" (such as LX) don't even have it installed in new C Series... I understand what you're saying, but if an airline has good wifi onboard (which I assume the C Series has), they should also have an app for download that se...Jump to post
Why are some of the classic tails being repainted? I remember seeing tons of the Harlequin, Stripes, and Dots tails at FLL and JFK. Now most of them are just Barcode and Blueberries. Personally I think it's because JetBlue is becoming a stingy lower and lower low cost airline. 3 liveries (tartan Bl...Jump to post
Nice to jetBlue enter the NE Corridor Shuttle market. They're good at giving passengers little extras that go a long way, and I believe this will be a successful route for them. I'd be surprised to see them start LGA-DCA since that route seems way more competitive, not because of DL or AA, but becau...Jump to post

As someone who lives in NYC, I strongly prefer EWR and JFK. LGA is fine to arrive at, but the departure experience at that airport just sucks.
Ironically, not as tricky as the 13L Visual at JFK. Trickiest thing about LGA are the 7000' runways, which (as others have mentioned) are not very long but also not very short either. I vividly remember flying in and out of LGA on Tristars as back in the early/mid 1990s, but now a very large chunk o...Jump to post
Congrats to DY- I hope this route is a success for them.
Re: nationality of the flight crew: when I flew them from JFK-LGW and then back to NY from CPH, the pilots were definitely European.
Based on what their CEO has stated, they want to keep expanding to more destinations. I'm sure many are curious to see how their JFK-CDG flights do this summer. They had certainly had their difficulties when they started long haul, but it's been a few years now and they seem to have overcome most of...Jump to post
When I flew Aero Mexico last year, I noticed that during boarding and after landing they'd start playing "So Happy Together" by The Turtles.
They did it on each leg; JFK-MEX and MEX-UIO and on the return trip as well.
I've only experienced one RTO, it was on an A-320 and was pretty much exactly the same as the video. I remember I noticed a good way in the takeoff roll the spoilers suddenly popping up about 5 seconds before hearing the engines spool down, or seeing the cascades open. I feel silly saying it, but th...Jump to post

Thanks for posting! I always enjoy reading reports from the "exotic" carriers, and always neat to see brightly colored planes.

"The 9 abreast 787s"......with the exception of those first few delivered to ANA, is there an airline with 787s that DOESN'T have 9 abreast in Y?

This so called "forensic official" is basing his claim that an explosion was likely since the body parts that have been recovered were not "intact" (my word, not theirs).
Is he serious?? No explosive chemical traces? Just really small pieces of remains? Seems like it's amateur night over there.
I said it in earlier thread, but with how much safer flying is today, it's easy to assume that something truly sinister would have to occur to make a plane crash. But with what we've learned from some recent investigations (AF447, Air Asia), anything is possible. Whether it's a terrorism, or yet ano...Jump to post

Thoughts with the victims and their loved ones. I'm very confident that the authorities will get to the bottom of this one in due time. I'm going to try not to speculate.
