MGA is losing service awfully fast. Very unfortunate to see. I wonder how long until intra Central American flights are reduced.

Always have to laugh at these videos where people clap, and then a few seconds later, plane is off of the runway. Never got the point of clapping.

Would love it if they could mimic DLs A350 cabins for their own A350s. Make the product over the pond consistant (when DL refurbishes it's cabins). That would be a very sensible and good move by VS. Their Upper Class is now quite old, and the DL product looks stunning in comparison - would also be ...Jump to post
With that plane they are not going to fly to any Muslim country anyway. Not even Morocco. Maybe they can reach Brussels though. Which could be their first scheduled destinations?

They could quit sucking so hard I actually do not think that Delta does suck that hard.

I was checking flight activity at my local airports late last night when I noticed a retired AA MD-80, N50704, arrived at Portsmouth Pease, NH-PSM, from the boneyard in Roswell for a quick gas and go before departing to KEF around midnight local time EST.

to add to this thread, I've seen on a BA brochure that daily fleet utilisation of Concorde was around 2 and a half hours daily!? Sound reasonable.

It might be wishful thinking on my part, but securing the terminal/gate space part of it may be very do-able. Perhaps BA could be enticed to move some of its operation to Terminal 8?

MAN-LAX on VS makes more sense. The tech crowd can easily transfer in AMS, FRA, LHR for SFO and SJC.
I can never say it enough how much I dislike the essence of DL, BUT I must say its fascinating to watch them fiddle with VS's scheduling and the whole VS/DL/KL/AF thing will be a real force!
Interesting that VS is going to 3 weekly 744 on JFK-MAN one would think a daily Delta 757 would be a better option. One would not think that as most traffic in and out of MAN is heavily tilted towards UK PoS - thus VS metal is the more prudent decision. That doesn't matter as all DL and VS flights ...Jump to post
Judging by this picture, I like the female dress, but the guy’s outfit is terrible. Please tell me Delta is paying for them to get their uniforms tailored? I’m sure they do.
