LH has been using the 748 again since March 11 on SEA-FRA. Is this a summer upgauge or just temporary? Around Christmas they went to the 748. They dropped back to the 744. It wasn't always daily. I think they took some Tuesdays and Thursdays off. Then I think they used the A330 for two days. They w...Jump to post

The latest tally I have is 24 daily flights: https://airwaysmag.com/airlines/southwest-will-join-airlines-flying-everetts-paine-field/ UA - 6 daily departures (split between SFO and DEN) AS - 13 daily departures (split between 8 destinations) WN - 5 daily departures (destinations not announced) How...Jump to post

I was looking at flight radar and saw LH 490 to SEA is an A330. Normally it is a B747-430. Around Christmas they upgauged to A B747-800. After that the returned to the standard B747-430. Last year around this time I believe they were daily, but this year they have been using the B747-430, but someti...Jump to post

Possibly more LAX additions.
Normal summer to winter seasonal shifts.
Delta has 75 orders for the CS100, and 91 717s, 108 MD-88s, and 58 MD-90s, so it doesn't sound like there will be a direct replacement, at least for the mainline fleet. If DL plans on utilizing it on the west coast, they could potentially have some fun with it, sending it from small markets to HNL,...Jump to post

Seniority integration will be strictly date of hire for flight attendants. AS hire dates will be adjusted to have the same criteria (currently VX is day 1 of training, AS is day after graduation) Also, I'd recommend changing the title. The negotiations have resulted in a TA, but the flight attendan...Jump to post
Because both groups were AFA, the bylaws of the union spell out the process. Even if one group doesn't agree, the bylaws are the guide.[/quote]
Do we know in this case what those bylaws read?
Thanks for posting this. Do we know how the seniority list integration will work?Jump to post
Parents aren’t allowed to hit their kids anymore, so you have to take a lot of preventive measures, as they outline in the article. Still a terrible nuisance. They should make parents with kids sit in a predefined “kids’ zone” so the others don’t have to put up with all the screaming. I haven't rea...Jump to post

I can see how this is an aggravation to employers, especially if the employees are (arguably) already receiving better benefits. I don't know what AS employee's benefits are, but lets say they get 20 personal days off (could be used for sickness, vacation, etc.) Take the 1 hour of sick leave for eve...Jump to post
Companies must now provide 1 hour of sick leave for every 40 hours worked under a new WA State sick leave law.

I wonder if Norwegian is looking at PHX. Seems like perhaps their less than daily flights might work. Lots of Germans visit the Grand Canyon.

It will be interesting to see if WN choses to compete head to head with UA to Denver and/or AS on some of their choices (I.e. Las Vegas.)Jump to post
Continue to be surprised by PAE announcement s. United surprised me. Some of Alaska's choices surprised me (i.e. SNA.). Now WN. I thought a while ago there was talk of Allegient. So PAE will have to carriers on SFO. It will be interesting to see where WN goes. Will WN compete with AS or UA (DEN), or...Jump to post
What other airlines will be at PAE? Have they announced destinations? I am not too familiar with the area, but looking at a map this does seem like it will be helpful to a lot of people north of Seattle? Could this hurt Bellingham at all since now there is a closer Seattle airport with probably low...Jump to post

This certainly warrants its own discussion. Your threads are not the center of the universe, sorry.
You are completely over thinking it! As pointed out to you already, Qatar is bilateral restricted in Australia. The only way for them to grow is to add larger aircraft.

Recently heard that ATL is within a two-hour flight from 80% of the US population. That got me thinking, which major hub has the shortest average flight time to 100% of the mainland US population?

I think my only BA 767 flights were when my flight from Madrid got cancelled due to the French ATC strike earlier this year and I was put on the earlier 767 flight, and a previous TLV flight.

Looks like AA is continuing to add hubs to a number of existing markets. The move to focus non O&D international traffic at PHL becomes a little more obvious at this time as well.
