Airlines know the transport of these minors for detention purposes for ICE is going to get them bad public relations at a time when they are considered lower than whale crap.

This will be the first time a Belgian airport other than BRU will see a nonstop flight to the United States. Correct me if I'm wrong, but what Belgian airport besides BRU has ever seen passenger flights to the United States? I don't think Charleroi, Liege or Oostend ever have. Antwerp definitely no...Jump to post
I’m of the opinion that ALL error fares should be honored, but just like most other customer service issues, the customer isn’t always as “right” in Europe as they are in America. It's quite the opposite. This IS without a shadow of a doubt illegal in the EU. If BA entered into a contract and they ...Jump to post
Alot of poor landings are a result of not being on speed. Make sure the aircraft is perfectly trimmed for 1.3x VSO, pick an aim point and set power for altitude, power idle when the runway is made, look at the end of the runway and flare based on your periphrial vision filling with runway.
And falling out of the sky or doing tech stops routinely, apparently. ATL is an IDIOTIC location for hubbing travel to SE Asia. Yet, when I flew MCI-ATL-ANC, DL had no problem flying me there.

No feed on either end. DY doesn't have a route map, it's a scatter plot.
How about that. The 739MAX will be flying IAH-ANC, which can push 7 hours. Quite a remarkable airplane if you ask me. Will this quiet all the naysayers out there about how bad this plane supposedly is? No. Twin minds on that. The 739 does well on mid (few hours or less) range or from airports with ...Jump to post
So hang on, a longhaul pilot working an average of 4.7- 6.7 hours, with bunk time thereafter is a risk on a ULH with 3 crew? Add an ´admin hour or 2´ (signon, preflight etc) and we are lucky to hit 8 hours of work . I wonder what the average Euro (probably contracted) LoCo jockey thinks , who repor...Jump to post
I'm fine if a private company wants to ban someone for previous poor behavior. I have a major problem with the government limiting the right to travel based on a social score. That just seems incredibly open to be abused. yeah, well the US has aggressively used the post 9/11 "no fly" list...Jump to post

Also interesting to note that in the poll provided by the article, "Do you think Midwest Express can be successful in its comeback?"... 74% voted yes. Sure, 281 isn't the largest sample size.

The less American parts the better. Why do you say this? Worldwide parts / maintenance support is / will always be an issue for Sukhoi - I wouldn't expect this to be an international seller at all.

I feel bad for these guys. Local or east coast based. It was rumored. True, but with the worldwide shortage of pilots they will find reemployment easily, correct?

Seems to me Iran has decided having nuclear weapons is of the utmost priority for them.

Quite well explained longhauler. My only beef would be that the "rapport de force" is somewhat unfair in a capital intensive business like the airlines. Any pilot strikes have catastrophic consequences to the airline. Better settle (even with outrageous demands) than face a strike. That e...Jump to post
If they will lie about that, what else?
Can them overnight.
AS in ANC or SEA. They don't have the right equipment or business model.
The reality is the Pacific is a much larger ocean and the distances can easily be 2x-3x was TATL routes operate at. The increased utilization per segment kills the economics of it.
The communist party is alive and well in China.
I can't help but think how unbelieveably modern, liberal and progressive China would be had it not gone red in the late 40's.
