Re: Is the JetBlue CEO giving us some hints for the future?

So here’s a dark horse speculation.

If Norwegian is in as bad financial trouble that Ryanair has been saying, it would make a great low investment opportunity to go TATL for B6. Get a new fleet and slots in Europe ready made. Who knows? Of course, Ryanair might have the same thoughts

Re: What was so different about the early 787 Dreamliners?

This documentary might be of some help.. https://youtu.be/rvkEpstd9os An interesting and disturbing documentary. As a born skeptic though, I have some doubts of the motivations behind the piece. Looks like a 'hit piece' put together by the Unions who fought hard against the outsourcing in general a...

Re: Delta CEO / Upcoming NB order comments...

He will not be viewed as unpatriotic if he doesn't buy Boeing. Airbus makes great aircraft and you need American workers to support those aircraft. Yes he will...by me, at least. American companies have an obligation to purchase American products unless it's absurdly fiscally irresponsible not to. ...

Re: Delta moves seat of Ann Coulter

It was a textbook display of what not to do by Delta. I suspect there is an employee who has lost his or her's ability to tweet on behalf of the company. I'm not sure they figured "everyone hates Ann Coulter" -- no evidence to support that -- but it would be a pretty foolish assumption. S...

Re: How many A330NEO will DL convert to A359

really disappointed in DL decision to go all out on Airbus. Must be a hangover of the former NW now DL management paired with HUGE AB discounts assisted by the EU insisting on AirBus purchases in order to approve the NW/DL merger. Really would prefer 78/8/9's to McPlanes Lots of hearsay and misinfo...

Re: Delta Finally Getting Some Negative Coverage

So we can't put our political opinions aside for a few moment to discuss Delta's mistake regardless of who was at the receiving end of it? Apparently not. Thought people could keep it more civil. There must be something we aren't being told. If she actually bought the ticket, ie: paid for it, then ...

Re: Flashlight in carry-on bag?

I once flew round trip to Florida with a large MagLight in my carry on backpack. It was a non-issue on the way down from New York, but coming back through Tampa the TSA wouldn't let me proceed with the flashlight. They said "it could be used as a weapon." Yeah, OK. What, am I likely to st...

Re: WN Transatlantic Viability?

So, is anyone thinking about Dublin as the European destination with a hookup or JV with someone like Ryan? And, using a 7310 max? That would be marrying up 2 heavy LCC hitters

It seems that, with the introduction of a new CEO, the tail has changed somewhat each time. This could be whats behind this change but not as subtly
