AirForce2 coming into SYR today!

VP Pence is flying into SYR today for a meeting with some local officials. I know you can't track that aircraft but does anyone know about what time it will land at SYR and what aircraft it is?

Re: AA9921: CLE to CLT... at 10,000ft?

I was on a flight a couple of summers ago (probably 2 years ago) from SYR-PHL on a dash-8, the air conditioning in the plane didn't work and it was around 90degrees in the plane. We went up into the clouds and turbulence got really bad, so bad that half the plane was throwing up. So we started desce...

Are the flights into SEA and PDX meant to feed into ANC flights in anyway?

What other flights to ANC are possible for B6? Does anyone think that FAI might be an option or does it make no sense?

ROC is the only 'major' NY airport without service to S. Florida. Even seasonal . It's embarrassing. Either WN or B6 could add nonstop service to FLL from ROC. Which of the 2 is likely to add nonstop service to FLL from ROC? That's true, but with SYR 1hr east and BUF/IAG 1hr west and both having S....

Two out of the three of those routes have been restarted (or are planned to restart). The only route left is SYR-DFW, hopefully that route will start back up as well.

A United Boeing 747-400 flew into Syracuse July 9, 2016, and I don't want to spend the money just to figure out one flight aircraft. You need a business account to look two years into the past.
