Ed just announced Endeavor, SkyWest and Republic as the surviving 3 DC carriers over the next 12 to 24 months. The vid is on YouTube. I’m not sure who the crowd represented. If that happens it'll be interesting to see what happens to Compass especially. I've heard that their AA flying is on shaky g...Jump to post
How did that work out for a domestic arrival by bus? Was the international baggage claim used and you had to walk through customs/immigration? This is from memory, but I recall some type of bypass hallway with a small domestic baggage claim area? It was set up to handle domestic arrivals. I would e...Jump to post
I was a regional FA. I would fly up to 8 legs a day. It's hard to keep track of where you are after awhile.Jump to post

This is a stupid idea. They'd be better off just expanded out the gate areas.Jump to post
I was a DL agent in two different stations. Our biggest "problem child" flights were always ASA flights. A senior agent called them "America's Sh*****t Airline". I always found there FAs to be excellent though.Jump to post
I flew a US MD-80 on BOS-PHL in August 1994, it was a thru flight and aircraft to MCO. This was a rebooking, we were intended to fly BDA-BOS on US (727-200) and BOS-DTW on NW. Our BDA-BOS flight was late so we were booked BDA-BOS-PHL-DTW all on US. The PHL-DTW flight was also late due to crew (but ...Jump to post

Perhaps because Boston has the largest concentration of Portuguese descendants in the USA? Or is that over your head to understand?
TWA didn't really have much going for them. STL was the only real hub. JFK was really just a focus city. There were small operations at BOS, LAX, & SJU. 9/11 killed TWA's JFK-CAI-RUH flight.Jump to post
Pan Am lost a 707 taking off from Papeete on July 22, 1973. It was PA816 AKL-PPT-LAX-SFO. The plane reached an altitude of 300ft before banking to the left and crashing into the Pacific. The wreckage lays over 2,000ft so the CVR was never recovered. One passenger survived but had no memory of the cr...Jump to post
AFA is desperate. They've lost US & NW and have really only been shrinking.Jump to post
Thank you for the interesting trip report! I often wonder what would have happened if PA and Republic had merged instead. National really did nothing but bring PA down.Jump to post
DL has dropped Abuja, Cairo, Cape Town, and Monrovia
LOS is the only place where the crews are told not leave the hotel. I've heard that most airlines follow that rule as well.

Northwest owned a hotel in Narita and Amsterdam too I believe. I know at one point, Delta had 19 crews spending the night in Amsterdam each night.Jump to post
It's amazing how much the service levels have changed. I flew QF CHC-SYD in 2004 on a 763 with printed menus and a choice of two hot meals (Lamb or Pasta) in Y.Jump to post

I may be a little off on my timing but when CO restarted the FL network out of DEN, it was operated on Frontier's certificate. Essentially FL was operating as a standalone carrier except the branding was CO. Slowly CO started moving out FL aircraft from Denver and using CO metal - like the DC9 that...Jump to post
Domestic Y in the U.S. prior to 9/11 - Free bags - Free assigned seats (including exit row) - Quick & easy security (arriving 45mins prior to departure with bags was normal) - Having family and friends not traveling go to the gate with you - Boarding an empty mainline aircraft - Extra Flight Att...Jump to post
ANZ looks like they have a great Y product. I'm surprised to see ANZ having anything to do with Antarctica.Jump to post
What terminal did NW use for its JFK-NRT/AMS and JFK-DTW/MSP routes? Was Terminal 4 used for DTW/MSP Flights? yes, all NW flights just before the merger were at T4. I don't think it was a dedicated baggage claim, they just happened to be one of the only one flying domestic flights. Sun Country prob...Jump to post

I really don't see the point of doing a trip report if you don't include a picture of the inflight service.Jump to post
It's precious the traveling public thinks their bags are treated like a piece of fine crystal. It's a suitcase it's designed to take the abuse. The baggage system swats the bag onto the right belt. The jetway baggage slide is poorly designed. Bags will pile up and fall off. Sometimes bags will just ...Jump to post
Three of four segments departed between 15-20 minutes late with people standing on the jetbridge or in the aisle of the plane as the minutes ticked away. I think you've also just had some bad luck. I've flown AA about every other week all summer long, and often everyone is seated ready to go 10-15 ...Jump to post
