Hey, SeaDoo, thanks for the kind remarks regarding my article. ;) Aviation and aerospace manufacturing are monstrously complex industries. My knowledge is a mile wide and just scratching the surface. That said, I am going to push back against your criticisms, though. I don't disagree with your tech...Jump to post
I am in agreement with the above comments that this will likely have no effect on Oakland flights. If there is a change, I would wonder if there would be an additional flight on game day or the day before to get Oakland fans to Las Vegas and back home.Jump to post
http://www.heraldnet.com/business/smaller-more-efficient-787-has-been-a-boon-for-airliners/ I realize it is easy to criticize poor journalism, but this article stuck out at me. The first paragraph talks about the demise of the glitzy British airline's US based carrier. Lets see if I can do a better ...Jump to post
I don't have any facts or figures to back up my opinion, but I think SLC-ELP is a hole in the DL route networkJump to post
Will Alaska Airlines add nonstop service to Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, Charlotte, Louisville, Memphis, and Pittsburgh? I Cleveland has nonstop flights to California and seasonal nonstop service to Seattle and Portland on Frontier. Alaska could provide year-round nonstop service between Clevel...Jump to post
I haven't read the proposed legislation. I think there is too much government regulation, but I would love to see a minimum set in law. Perhaps 31" or more. They could also address seat width. As long as I am being the dictator, I would also like to see at least one free piece of checked luggag...Jump to post
I am a fan of air travel, but it seems like in the contiguous states, they should eliminate this program. I am not saying it should continue in AK and HI, but the contiguous states seem like an easy place to start. Can anyone come up with a good airport/route in the Lower 48 that is worthy?Jump to post
I realize there is a wide variety in the experience level and knowledge people.have about flying. I do have to say I don't understand why anyone would fly without a jacket
Had two good flights today on British Airways, but both were too hot, especially in F while trying to sleep.

I'm with the naysayers. I wouldn't even give it close to a 40% chance for 2018. As I usually feel, I would be happy to be wrong.Jump to post
Good to read about an improvement I the passenger experience.Jump to post
RE: Sun County to SEA
I think they must have had something going on to zero out SEA. As far as I know, I believe they have been operating in SEA for years.
Well... if all goes according to plan, they WILL Be getting some A321 NEO aircraft. I ended up on an Alaska Airlines flight without knowing it when I booked BA for ARN-LHR-SEA-AUS-LHR-ARN. Nice airline but I chuckled a bit for my self when I read "Proudly all Boeing" on one of their plane...Jump to post
Here we go with the "restart 757 production" or "757 replacement" replies in 3, 2, 1..... You must have known what was going through my mind. I realize Alaska went to all 737, but I could see the 757 fitting in. Perhaps it isn't efficient to have this different fleet type though...Jump to post
So I just was looking at this picture:http://www.airliners.net/photo/Delta-Connection-%28ASA-Atlantic-Southeast-Airlines%29/Bombardier-CRJ-900ER-%28CL-600-2D24%29/1951907/L I did a little research. It appears the DL pilot was at fault. What kind of sanctions would he/she face? Would this be a job en...Jump to post
I am skeptical of this. If it does happen, it seems destined to lose money, lots of it. According to wikipedia the only flights to Europe are KLM to Amsterdam and Brussells to BRU. I don't really consider IST Europe, but I realize it technically is. How do you make a flight to New York, or anywhere ...Jump to post
If the other pilot ended up in the hospital due to a wound he received in the fight, how is it that the other one was not arrested? That he was forced to continue with his flying duties is just surreal, but not strange within Korea´s corporate culture, I suppose. Just because someone ends up in the...Jump to post
It's appalling that one was even allowed to continue. Both should have been instantly suspended pending further investigation. I would agree. They aren't both being suspended because they did something wrong, but as there is the potential that they did something very very wrong. A company could sus...Jump to post
The state of Delaware is woefully underserved. I vote for a new airline named Delawair... If by "woefully underserved" you mean nonexistent then yes they are woefully underserved. haha 54'40 or fight. Makes you wonder how different things would have been and would be now. Looks like I quo...Jump to post
[url][/url]Does Alaska use mainline to Montana and Wisconsin? I thought it was Skywest to Milwaukee and all Horizon to Montana.Jump to post
Minnesota, where NWA was headquarter, used to be part of what was considered the NW territory(ies.). Now a days people usually refer to the Midwest or upper Midwest. Also sometimes people refer to the Pacific NW to be more specific when talking about Washington or Oregon.Jump to post
On my phone I slight prefer the new forum page. I do wish that you could see when a topic was started and accurately see when the last post was made. I wish you could read a topic, then when you come back to it, clearly tell what the new posts that have been made since you last viewed it. I also wis...Jump to post

First topic after years of reading airliners.net. Short version:If Northwest got A340's do you think DL would still be flying them, and if so, on what routes?
