Comparing humans to cargo is a silly, irrelevant argument and just a distraction technique. Not suitable for a facts based forum. How is flying a freighter different than the same plane in a passenger configuration? Cargo can be replaced, human lives cannot be replaced, in case the unthinkable happ...Jump to post

Tell it to the passengers. They are the ones vomiting and crying for their lives. The media reacts to the viewer or reader not the aviation intelligencia. Even on this site, debates can go on forever on whether a particular event is a big deal or not. Article is just whining.Jump to post
The reason that Delta doesn't celebrate northwest's heritage is that they began removing special liveries (other than SkyTeam) to try to begin a brand turnaround following the merger. You need to take a look at what Delta was to consumers 10 years ago. Delta had a horrible reputation as an airline....Jump to post

[twoid][/twoid] Generally in contract law there is some concern that both parties have somewhat equal power. Airports, cities, states, and the FAA are in fact the agents ensuring an appropriate power and they have failed at the job. As they have in the medical field. And as they have in arbitration ...Jump to post

I know that their legal team threw in somehow jargon in the CoC that only means they are liable for $50. That's brilliant on Delta's part. But, does that make it right? We shouldn't have to pay more to ensure the pet arrives at the destination intact. No, if you want your cat to get their alive don...Jump to post
Such negative vibes. I fly them more and more and find that they are offering a good service at a good price. I usually get to where I am going on time and without drama. The FC seats are comfortable and the planes are cleanish. And the planes are packed, so regular customers may not feel the negati...Jump to post

I work in a company where things like bonus/profit sharing are paid out in one big check and normally a good 40%+ is eaten away in taxes. For fun I looked at the above calculator and even in Texas a little above 30% is taken away by the tax man on such large bonus payments. You are confusing withho...Jump to post
Let me ask you this, do you guys want STL to remain in its current condition? Or would you rather STL design and build a new, consolidated terminal with modern amenities to give arriving passengers a better impression of STL? Everyone wants new, shiny things, but STL can not afford it. As for D, it...Jump to post

The KC Star story from above makes it very clear all airlines were effected. No party for UA, either. and Holly Rowe was delayed!

Also, SkyConnect opened yesterday. Anyone check it out yet? Yes. I wasn't very impressed by the train/automated mover itself. I have always been a huge fan of the automated people movers from Bombardier that connect each concourse to the terminal but figured that the Mitsubishi train/people mover w...Jump to post

And please tell us how wise you are. From the video it’s easy to see, if you can actually pay attention, that he’s been given the information he needs.

My point is, DL gave him the information, HA did not do what they were supposed to do. If they did, he’d have more to say than “this is a DL tag” DL did not give him the information and you do not know HA did not do what they were supposed to do. The agent did not say, "Let me look that up for...Jump to post
And for those who say that he should’ve just helped the customer and taken the claim, then DL is taking a DOT hit for something that they are not responsible for and the employee is opening themselves up to discipline for not following policy.

It’s not like having to cancel over 200 flights on a Sunday because you didn’t have enough glycol to De-ice the planes. But that would never happen to a traditional airline, would it?Jump to post
Bottom line was that the senior F9 pilots were not going to throw their junior pilots "under the bus" to become part of WN. Was it a good decision, you be the judge. You have to give the union leaders and F9 pilots credit for being true to their representation organization values. If they...Jump to post
If they wanted a SE hub, they could go with TPA. Or... they can just acquire JetBlue or Spirit and take FLL. :stirthepot: Side note: it wouldn’t surprise me if Fornaro is shopping around Spirit.

The outstations have it particularly tough seeing staff & hour cuts for part time and overtime is almost non existent.

Bankruptcies were rampant. Saying they all would survive is folly. What industry has not had to consolidate? I think you would have the same national airlines you have today. DL, AA, UA, WN. Then add in several opportunistic LLCs to round out the total. You either grow or die. You can not stay stagn...Jump to post
