Just booked a spring break trip: March 4 WN901 BWI-TPA March 9 WN5639 TPA-BWI Of course you can never be sure of the equipment, but I hope to luck out and fly the Max . I've flown WN a few times since 2014 and have yet to fly on the heart livery or even an aircraft with split scimitars. Hoping that...Jump to post

My first thought is the weight of this coating on the aircraft. And would Boeing make it an option? So Fiji Airways could decide not to order it since they'd never need it?Jump to post
WN's presence in BWI is 11 years older than theirs in PHL (2004 vs 1993) and except in rare cases it's hard to build up a hub (sorry, focus city) 90 miles from another one regardless of the circumstances. When WN had begun at PHL, the Piedmont/US Airways operation at BWI had fizzled out so WN was al...Jump to post

Nice report, but I can't see the pictures on Anet- I just see "image". Same with me, but the provided link worked perfectly. Thanks for the review!

There was actually BWI-SFO tonight operated by an Airbus. I saw it on FR24. BWI-SFO began under VX and it has been either an A319 or A320 ever since. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems many ex-SFO routes that AS operates that were previously operated by VX are still operated by A32X aircraft, al...Jump to post
Title says it all. https://youtu.be/H2tuKiiznsY Pretty stupid explanation from Vox, with even worse graphs. Although knowing them this should be expected.

BWI-LAX is well served IMO with WN, UA, and AS all flying the route. BWI-SEA may have some opportunity since only AS flys the route 1x daily. AS recently added a second frequency (less than weekly and seasonal, I believe), and WN flies BWI-SEA at least daily. NK also flies the route seasonally (the...Jump to post

The Pilots and the FAs have HUGE pay increase adjustments when doing redeye flying. On already trashy redeye yields, how much is left over to make these flights worth it form a profit standpoint?

There is a substantial issue that Boeing will most definitely need to determine before all else——size. Will they attempt to use folding wing tips to squeeze 797s into a C parking spot, or will they go with a full D size plane? You see, lots of US airports have D parking spots, so that won’t be a pr...Jump to post

They're slowly introducing the 787 into PHL this year, so I would imagine that would be the most direct replacement in the near future.

What I think will happen is that HA will continue to evaluate smaller markets for their 321s. In California alone, one could look at Burbank (as mentioned).

WN added EWR to BWI twice daily starting October 2nd. Interesting choice in my opinion, but it has not been served since UA dropped it. What do you think about WNs choice?
