Not sure if anybody remembers, but Varig, (from GRU-ATL) was the first airline to fly into Atlanta's 'new" Terminal E, back in 1995. Varig was code-sharing with Delta back then. Of course Delta wanted to be the first into terminal E, but Varig got the honors.Jump to post
Turn off the cameras, and not the first congressman would show up.
Don't forget, these are the same congressman, who also takes a ton of money (bribes) from these same airlines.
That's pretty incredible. Over 80 daily transatlantic departures from just the U.S. network carriers alone, not to mention all the flights operated by foreign airlines. That speaks to the undisputed primacy of NYC as the definitive U.S. gateway to Europe. Commavia, for the summer of 2017, Atlanta w...Jump to post
For the last five days DL has been operating a new 3rd daily service JFK-AMS flight DL9930 timed to replace KL642 JFK-AMS.

We need a law/amendment in the US prohibiting naming any public building or place after any politician. If a building needs to be named after a person, then it needs to be someone who benefited the public, not a politician. Boy do I agree with that!!! If you are going to name a building after someb...Jump to post
Top of the third tonight at Citizens Bank Park in Philly. Game between the Atlanta Braves, and the Philadelphia Phillies. The sign behind home plate for this half-inning is for United Airlines. Hmmm. I know these games go to out-of-town markets, besides being shown in Philadelphia. But just surprise...Jump to post
I'd just as soon not have the boss "helping" me out most of the time. Not defending Ed either, (yes there are always two sides to a story, and social media loves to bash), but when I have had to operate in a crisis mode in my career, trust me, the LAST person I need looking over my should...Jump to post
And there are millions of others who unquestionably feel the same way. But then, of course, MIA is the only megahub in South Florida - and for a reason. While plenty of people prefer to fly into, and vacation/live nearer to, FLL or PBI, MIA is still the primary economic draw in the region, and stil...Jump to post
I lived in South Florida a few years back, and trust me, even if they had the only non-stops, I avoided Miami totally. No-way was I getting into that mess. I mainly used FLL, but there were times I would also use PBI. PBI was actually my favorite, being a nice little airport, but FLL had more options.Jump to post
Delta plans new daily nonstop service between JFK and Rio de Janeiro Didn't see this coming.

Delta just confirmed Seattle will have 163 flights this summer, again up from 38 in the summer of 2011. http://news.delta.com/delta-begin-seattle-chicago-o-hare-service-june-2017-0 Three years ago, Delta said they would be offering 150+ flights in 2017.

Well, if my math is correct, (and that can be debatable), with these new flights, Delta will have 163 flights this summer at Seattle. The Delta press releases all last fall, and this winter have been saying Delta will have 160 flights in the summer of 2017 at Seattle. That was before these ORD fligh...Jump to post
This past August 1, 2016, AF1 came into ATL. I saw an old AF1 (707?), back in 1976 with Gerald Ford, but never the 747 version. I wanted to see the 747 version, so I headed out to ATL to see it. Anyway, from what I could tell, there was only one AF1 flying into ATL that day. There was indeed an Air ...Jump to post
Despite all the distractions in this post this seems to get to the point. Airlines have to deal with less than optimal gate situations all the time. Deal with it JetBlue! I have flown out of "D', many, many times since the airport opened in 1980. I never felt like a second class citizen flying...Jump to post
F concourse was never going to happen. It is restricted to international flights. AST1Driver, I agree with everything you said. Only exception is I have flown domestic out of "F" twice now. Once to STL, in yes, (the summer) of 2015 on DL, and once to SRQ in December 2015, again on DL. No ...Jump to post
It actually makes sense now. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if JetBlue's advanced ticket sales for ATL flights is actually in the toilet. Sure, they say 50K seats have been sold but who's to really know if that's true or not? I bet ticket sales are actually very weak and thus, the story is born of...Jump to post
Two thoughts on this. None of us really know both sides of the story, but if the "D" gates are all they can get right now, hey take them just to get started. I have flown out of "D" many times over the years, and I certainly don't look down on having to be on the "D" co...Jump to post
A little correction to what I mentioned earlier. The routes that Delta proposed from MCO in the early 90's were not all to South America. There was one to South America, and two to Central America. From the December 15, 1992 timetable, (which I have a copy of), it shows the following flights startin...Jump to post
Delta "thought" about using MCO as their South American hub in the early 90's, (when MCO was kind of a real hub back then). In matter of fact, I have a timetable that shows three South American routes that were "going" to be started from MCO, but for whatever reason it never happ...Jump to post
Never had a problem with Delta. Have flown them Trans-Atlanta and Trans-Pacific. I am just glad I had a job that allowed me to fly across the oceans. Many people would give anything to be able to have a job that flew them across the oceans. The Delta service I have experienced has been very good. Ma...Jump to post
Not poor planning if they realized they can now make more money off a third LAX-LHR flight. Don't forget, VS added this at a time when they did not have the DL/VS partnership. They were basically a stand-alone airline when it was added. Now with the partnership, things for VS have drastically change...Jump to post
OK...like the rest said, GREAT improvement. However like a previoius poster, said, it is almost unreadable on an ipad and iphone, as the text is way to small.

WSB Radio in Atlanta is now running an ad, (brought to you by some Alliance), telling about all the negative things about the country of Qatar, and asking people not to fly this airline.
No idea who is behind this ad, but we all have to assume we know one party that is.
