I don't see why infrequent flights from larger airports to HDN, MTJ, JAC, etc. wouldn't work out, given the abysmal fares that the legacies are charging on these types of routes. The people going to HDN, MTJ, and JAC to stay at ski resorts are either premium travellers who expect and will pay for f...Jump to post
Spirits market cap sinking towards 2 billion, I wonder if anyone will make a play for the airline. You’d think it’s now or never. It is actually not just spirit but rather the entire sector. Is it possible someone makes a bid? Perhaps. The money is still there but it is a quickly shrinking proposit...Jump to post
Anyone who bought a ticket at this fare or any TA that sold them knew in their heart of hearts that this was a glitch in the system. There is no way trip 2/3 around the world can be had for that amount. They took a gamble and lost. BTW, the topic is being discussed here: http://www.airliners.net/fo...Jump to post
Yeah, those rankings, seriously.
LOL, Detroit at #88 and behind JFK? REALLY? Detroit is a fantastic airport to go through.
SVO deserves to be far higher up too.
DL has nothing that is equal to NK's 28" pitch, AA's A319's are close but DL hasn't "sunk" anywhere near NK. I just got stuck in one of the rows near the back of a DL 739 and was dreading it a little for ATL-SEA (I'm 6'4") and it wasn't that bad. The MD-80's and 717's are very c...Jump to post
I think Delta has demonstrated that passengers don't really care that much about the actual age of the plane as long as the service is reliable and the aircraft doesn't look & feel old on the inside. In recent years, DL has done a pretty good job of keeping up and refreshing aircraft interiors;...Jump to post

What sort of diesel are the Russian rockets running on?
Awesome story and nice to hear someone being brought back to life vs UA killed a dog. =)
I am sure the pax feels very lucky there were 2 nurses and an EMT on board. Awesome example and reason for having a AED on board.
Thanks to the thread found the movie made about the lost Cessna. REALLY well done... watch on youtube.
ERJ and CRJ, in the 135/145 and 200 variety are one of the only planes I can fall asleep on, lol, especially if there is some decent turbulence. The older interiors have far better padding on the seats and are more comfortable and you cannot beat how quickly the plane loads and unloads. Only downsid...Jump to post
lol, Delta is really controlling their social media folks... first the NRA cold shoulder and then snuffing your olympic champions. Both free mins of fame they fumble badly. Folks don't realize how big of a deal it is for USA to win the Curling gold medal.... really big upset too... As bad as Team US...Jump to post
stunning photos.Jump to post
Contrary to earlier reports, the aircraft does not appear to be found yet. Given the total lack of information, and thus the possibility of survivors, I hope the search and RESCUE efforts are intensified. Trying to avoid politics here, but I would hope modern ELTs were not on any embargo or sanctio...Jump to post
Would be awesome to see them take a bunch of SSJ's and then have some brand spanking new MC21s.Jump to post
Wow, 4 new routes for TTN. The one I am most excited about is TTN-JAX. Certainly beats the convenience vs going EWR/PHL to MCO, etc. Wonder what routes were killed from TTN. Perfect for us who live in the Princeton area and commute to North East Florida.... while not UST... certainly beats heading t...Jump to post
Besides the ones named above such as NYC, I always look between both DFW/DAL and HOuston hobby and IAH when I fly to those areas. Delta serves both in both cities.Jump to post
Such a stupid comment about the pizza. Like saying Americans have not tried sushi.
Am surprised it was ACY and not EWR or PHL, even JFK which has SU presence.
I suppose at first it was really supposed to be a fuel stop before discovering a leak.

Jax is a big growing area and already the largest city in Florida population wise at nearly a million people.

Impressive for the A321 but no way in hell would I want to be on a narrow body for that long if I have neighbors sitting next to me. Sorry that is an absurd comment, the seats on an A321 are visibly wider than a 10-abreast 777 or 9-abreast 787, and the same as a 747, A330/340 or A380. The only diff...Jump to post

Wow, some idiocy here. As a financial professional involved on the investment side, I would urge folks to look at the $$$ before anything else. Very often companies will blame something else or someone else for their $$$ issues. The SSJ's being grounded may be much more related to Interjet having $$...Jump to post
As to why not Mexico City, I think it really has to do with a bigger focus on Russians traveling to Domican Republic instead, if they fly out this far west.
I do believe there may be more business travel in the future as the BRICS now are working more closely with Mexico.
Could Aeromexico take delivery from Bombardier, but DL buys the aircraft off of them? Shady yes, but perfectly legal. This is essentially a "sale-leaseback".... Delta sells their plane rights to AM, and then AM leases them back to Delta. Depending on how the trade penalty is structured, t...Jump to post
Just to add to the NYC/TLV market... Yes, EWR is fairly safe and distinct for those traveling from NJ. From NYC, for the cost concious folks, besides the direct flights you also have a number of cheap one stops. If you fly JFK/SVO on Aeroflot or JFK/KBP on Ukraine International, a good amount of tra...Jump to post
The article says that passengers don't have to deplane. As far as parking goes, I wished it would have been cheaper but if any needed improvements were to be done it needed to charge. $8 isn't bad your not going to find anything much cheaper at EWR and PHL. PS $8 includes all taxes and Fees I would...Jump to post
I can see a few of those... up you still have to get off the plane and are still wasting time you saved by flying out of TTN in the first place. I flew them to Florida once, but now that parking at TTN is not free, I just go back to EWR or PHL, get my skymiles and can visit the lounge. Would take F9...Jump to post
Problem would be, when said star would like to go for a late night out they can't simply leave their hotel room but need to contact the FBO, they most likely would call a bus to pick you up a the plane and to the FBO Terminal.

Such a "Delta" thing to do. Sorry, couldn't resist.
Good for United to picking up solid used aircraft for what is likely to be really good price.
Don't they have a bunch of 737's on order though?
Wow, those purple uniforms are hideous. Far prefer the existing uniforms, if only Delta kept up their appearances more. After a while those uniforms get worn out. It is amazing, on my Delta flights you either have people who take their hygiene and appearance seriously and look extremely stylish, and...Jump to post

Tu-144 was also a pretty blatant copy. Western bullcrap. Just because something looks like something (and there may have been *some* industrial espionage), does not mean it is a COPY.
