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.

Just out of curiosity, when they had 747 did they run two a day?Jump to post

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. I have talked to many Dutch in Arizona who like the American Southwest as they say there is nothing like it in Europe. I wonder if my anecdotal experience wit...Jump to post
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

My predictions PAE-PDX PAE-SFO PAE-OGG PAE-CHS PAE-EWR PAE-LAX I am excited to see the announcement tomorrow. Lots of predictions have been made for PDX. SFO would be interesting. I think United may have preempted that by announcing they were coming to PAE and serving SFO. OGG would be a popular de...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. Upgauging three routes in a closed market is simply incremental growth to keep abreast with demand. Emirates with 14 flights per d...Jump to post

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? Thanks for coming up with this thread. I have never thought of this before. I am looking forward to re...Jump to post
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. I might be wrong on the TLV flight, I know I have flown the 777 from TLV, but I thought one flight to TLV wa...Jump to post
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. No idea on frequencies or aircraft type. We can all do what we do best and speculate until Enrilia sees the adds th...Jump to post
It really does make you think... really what is the value of an airline alliance? Seems like we are going back full circle? I am not sure I understand what you said as it relates to Alaska. Alaska never was a part of SkyTeam. They have had relationships with airlines in SkyTeam and airlines in One ...Jump to post
We all know they would divert to ATL to screw over their DTW customers and further dehub the decrepit DTW hub.[/quote]
As we get closer to wrapping up the year, I thought it'd be nice to have a recap for what happened at airports in Washington, whether it's route announcements, routes starting, or other things.

It's going back to a CRJ-900 for the winter schedule, but I believe the A319 is back in the spring. SBA handled 727s and 737s in the past, so I'm sure it could take other types of mainline aircraft. United had mainline on some of its DEN and SFO frequencies this summer as well. SBA is a great littl...Jump to post
Lots of Alaska-Hawaii flights (Bellingham-Hawaii,Sacramento-Maui, and Oakland-Hawaii.)
There are other Alaska routes like SMF-SJD.
Currently, and historically, routes to Anchorage like former Continental from Seattle and currently Jet Blue to Seattle and Portland.
Loys of Southwest routes.

I don't see it happening anytime soon. With the PDEW of 37 for the whole state, you are roughly only filling up 1/9 of a DL A350 and 1/7 of a SQ A350. This would be one of the world's longest flights. Considering DL is the only airline flying SEA-HKG, and that isn't even daily year round, why would ...Jump to post
What is SEA looking forward to for next year? Thomas Cook to MAN? Additional Norwegian destinations? Will Eurowings return next summer? Will Condor bring back the SEA-MUC flights back next summer? What about Asia? Just Thomas Cook for next year so far. DY to OSL is almost a certain for next fall, 2...Jump to post
