The US3 employ hundreds of thousands more than Boeing.
I would like to see EK and QR snubbed, put on blast for their racism and blatant mistreatment of employees (in slave like employment conditions).
Boeing also deserves to lose given their recent behavior with the C series.
Only on A.Net is it "totally fair" for a country to dump on the USA (because their own markets suck), when the USA taxes it "OH BIG BAD MEAN USA!"
Hope it passes.
Probably Dubai takes the cake. Every regulation is tailored to suit Emirates. No labor protection laws, lax aviation regulator, zero % financing from regional neighbors, city leaders constantly scouring for liberal BASAs, and undisclosed arm length transactions to name a few. Agreed. The airline is...Jump to post
What a joke. 3 players on this tiny route while you’re cutting 757 service between larger cities. The other 2 airlines are using KEF as a cheap funnel for flights to Europe. The O and D is gravy. What does AA have to look forward to? AA can pull people out of any city in the United States and conne...Jump to post
How dare you say anything remotely negative about the God Airbus!?!Jump to post

I could set a clock by the sound of MD-80's flying out of MCI to DFW. End of an era.Jump to post
The article says it all.A market of 740 (and declining) when launched to a max market of 400 today.Airbus bet on a premise that this trend would reverse itself due to airport congestion.They bet horribly wrong. The market actually continued on the path is was already set on.The launch of A351 and B...Jump to post
Nice report. It looks like a standard Europe LCC flight but going far, which is quite different to their Dreamliner offering. On a more general note, I do have to laugh at people's take on Norwegian. They employ some Thai flight attendants who work to, well, Thailand. I think that's an idea they st...Jump to post
Almost certainly from AA to LHR.Jump to post
I've said it before and I'll say it again. They need to move over to the East Coast. They have very little presence over here, and are missing getting passengers in free markets while they play around California and sending E175's to the Midwest. East coast has a ton of established competition. Whe...Jump to post
Well that’s America for you. It’s a crime to make whoopee out in the open yet in many states you can walk around with real weapons that can take multiple lives in a matter of seconds legally, as opposed to the non-lethal weapons used in this “crime”. Just give them a small fine, get them to apologi...Jump to post
He asked about the CEO and you answered with the NEO, but you’re focused on making a point right? Yes. And you’ll never be able to reason otherwise. To be very clear hear, I talked about old and end of the line frames could be worse if you look at the longer term. So to answer me with a question ab...Jump to post
I would start an airline called Elevate. Using CS300 in an 2-2 all business configuration. No carry-on baggage other than something (purse, handbag, briefcase, backpack, tote) to fit under the seat in front of you. Up to two complimentary checked bags. You could bundle a concierge car service or li...Jump to post
So would United be performing D-checks on the aircraft as they convert them, or would they keep to the maintenance schedules that already exist for them? Airlines run their own FAA-approved "phase" programs (A-B-C-D checks) in accordance with their operator certificates, otherwise all the...Jump to post
I flew NK DTW-DFW-DTW in late June. Every NK pilot I saw at either airport had their badges on an ALPA-provided "Fair Contract Now" lanyard. The two sides are in negotiations. As it stands, the NK pilots are currently without a contract and are the lowest-paid A320 family pilots among all...Jump to post
It should be noted that drinking ages in the US are state laws. You can drink on a military base (federal property) at 18 if the base commander allows it.Jump to post
That'll be the day :lol: They don't even overnight crew right now They are testing overnights right now. Seems like cart before horse don't you think?

I think AS is doing well but, AS needs to revaluate how much space their "Premium Class/ Elite Status - Refundable Ticket" takes up in Economy. This class is so large that many of their planes are going out half empty, there just aren't that many people willing to pay that much for a tick...Jump to post

Childish beyond belief.
Netherlands should call their bluff.
To answer the question about arbitration. The arbitration results are not a pretty sight from pilots view. All the union proposals were denied. Scope and job protection is denied. New pay rates only for years 1-5. T Other years were denied. The pilots are not happy. IF all union proposals were deni...Jump to post

Nothing gets past these a.net detectives..
It occurs to me that there is very little variety on this map, only a few different airlines that got strong positions throughout the whole country. Very little regional differences. From a European point of view this seems very odd. I've tried to create a similar map for Europe. Not guaranteed to ...Jump to post

French language ATC is the quickest way to remove situational awareness of a dangerous situation. It's far from best practice and remains only for political reasons. https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20000525-0 A good listening watch could have saved the lives of the crew IMHO.
