OMA/MKE-ATL are right up there in longest routings. IIRC, they send MD-88s on ATL-PWM, too. That could be up there too. I believe there will be around ~45 MD-88s remaining by the end of 2019 with the rest retiring in 2020. There maybe a few cities in the midwest that are all MD-88 (DAY, CLE, CMH, M...Jump to post

All those are reasonable guesses. I think AA has done SJC-RDU also. The first new route that came to my mind is SJC-BOS. That market seems really underserved. AA once had 4x on that route. I’m surprise AS hasn’t added it yet. Another route that could work is SJC-IAD (or DCA if someone had the slot)...Jump to post
My guesses BOS - SAN (75S) SJC - SAN (220) SJC-RDU (319) used to served by Midway SJC - DFW (220) SJC -AUS (220) SJC - ORD (220) SJC - MCI (220) SJC - PDX (220) I think you see where I’m going... too business routes on the 220.

I wonder if DL will try to link all of their focus cities up to each other. If that's the case, we'd be seeing CVG-BNA resume, plus the launch of CVG-SJC. We'd also see RDU/AUS/BNA-SJC. A few other routes I can see: IND-AUS/BNA SJC-DEN PDX-AUS/SJC DCA-BNA? They'd have to cut a frequency from anothe...Jump to post

BOS is definitely the biggest. MCO, PIT, and RDU are up there too. IND & CMH are also decent sized operations for them. Definitely not the largest, but it is worth noting that AA does serve all of their hub cities, including JFK, from both IND and CMH. What's the smallest city with service to a...Jump to post
This right here is a very haunting photo. This is a photo of the doomed AA191 flight taxiing for departure at ORD on the exact flight that it would crash. Pretty chilling.

A United DC-10 diverted into DCA but I'm not sure if it was an international flight. Gonna go way out on a limb and say you probably didn't see a United DC-10. https://farm5.static.flickr.com/4006/4271371847_5a4afdabb7.jpg That's clearly DCA in the background, too. Took place in 1998.Jump to post
Besides the 777-200/777-200ER, they already have these: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wingtip_device#Raked_wingtip No need for winglets. The non-ER 777-300 also has the original, non-raked wingtip. I know the -200LR has raked wingtips, but does the -200ER have them? It looks like non-raked wingtips...Jump to post

I can say I flew MCE on their E175 and LUS A319s, and had a pretty positive experience, albeit I didn't have huge expectations for either. I'd hope that their MCE product on the 777W is significantly better than the E175/A319. If you want more space and additional service, then I'd say go for it. If...Jump to post
SJU, SDQ, and maybe STI have to come to mind. SJU/SDQ both used to be pretty important routes for AA from JFK, and it was a pretty similar story for STI. As a matter of fact I know they used to operate JFK-SDQ/SJU with A300s, and the same may have been true for STI.Jump to post
I think UA also had a plane in the Battleship livery flying around in 2014. IIRC I've seen a shot of a CRJ-700 at ORD with the battleship livery in 2014. It's probably on here somewhere.

I've always thought that both IAD-FCO/MAD (especially MAD) would be able to work year-round, even if it's less than daily in the winter. MAD is a large capital city, and should have a decent enough pull to maintain year round service along with EWR. FCO is similar in the sense that there should be a...Jump to post

I'm expecting a letdown on this one. For one, I'm starting to believe that the livery may not change that much overall. And second, I'm starting to think that the changes will be somewhat negative and will be worse than the current one.
Fingers crossed that I am wrong, though.
Hey guys, It seems that SU ordered 35 more MC-21, that's 85 altogether. Considering that SU already operates SSJ, can we imagine that it will follow by ordering Il-96 while awaiting the new C-929? I have a lot of doubts. SU had 6 IL-96-300s that they recently retired in 2014, and I think most of th...Jump to post
Who all does serve CVG-MSY and CVG-SAN right now? IIRC, G4 does serve CVG-MSY less than daily, but does anyone else? Does F9 have any seasonal flights for CVG-MSY at all? Or is G4 the only one? As for CVG-SAN, I believe F9 is the only one right now. Is that one a less than daily seasonal one, too?Jump to post
I really can't get over how some people actually think DTW is an underserved market. DL's 461 daily departures make DTW a larger hub than places like EWR, PHL, MIA, IAD, and SFO in terms of daily departures, and this isn't even counting NK's growing operation at DTW. Almost all of those markets are ...Jump to post
Sort of surprised that DL only has 28 daily departures from AUS, which is less than places like CLE, PIT, and CMH. On the flip side, I'm guessing they're gate constrained at AUS right now, and I know that almost all those departures are mainline. I'd guess that number will increase once they get mor...Jump to post
Seems like the E170/5SC series and the CRJ550 should make for an interesting recalibration next year in some of these figures. Also, seems like IAD is just plain underutilized. For all of the real estate and capacity....seems like it is begging for another couple of banks, and more importantly, mor...Jump to post
Why don't they just bring this livery back?
Good adds for AA - these all make a lot of sense and should perform well. I think the following domestic routes would also play to AA's strengths and round out their network: PHX-COS PHX-XNA PHX-MSY PHX-BNA DFW-CAK DFW-CRW DFW-PVD It would also be nice to see LAX-PIT come back.

Wonder what equipment will be used--EMB-175s? E-175s on IAD-SRQ and 737/A320s on IAD-RSW. Per Google flights. Honestly, I’m surprised RSW isn’t a B738, or at least at the minimum a B737. I’m guessing it will definitely be upgauged come next year’s spring break vacation though. I wouldn't be surpris...Jump to post
