There is no defending this, at all. Shame on Alaska, I hope every single passenger on that flight votes with their wallet/voice and never fly Alaska again along with telling their friends/family not to as well.Jump to post
There are many Monday Morning QB’s on this thread. I was in B6 Airport Management for nearly 15 years in two of their major focus cities so I will tell it like it is: When they let Neeleman go in 2007 that took away so much of the pride we all had in our home grown airline. The man has his faults f...Jump to post
A few years ago I was the biggest B6 fanboy ever, as they got me back into my love of flying. Once I took my first flight with them December 2007 I was hooked. For the few years after the fact, I flew nothing but B6. I praised them online and went after anyone who talked negative about them. Then I...Jump to post

Congrats to both airlines and to Airbus on this wonderful development, can't wait to fly on one when they enter service with either Delta, JetBlue, or Moxie. As to Moxie, if it was started by anyone else I would be concerned but Neeleman has a good track record for starting up successful airlines.Jump to post
Slow year compared to previous years, hoping it picks up in 2019. Also missed out riding on a MAX 8 due to a swap to a regular -800.

Nowadays, we have our boarding passes on our phones. And for decades and decades of the Jet Age we survived with paper tickets or printed boarding passes.

Flew last night 12/18 on a Delta 717 (N979AT, fleet number 9544) from ATL to HPN. When I pulled up the flight details over WiFi, it showed that we were on fleet number 9556, N896AT. All the flight tracking sites show we were on N979AT. Any reason why the info over the WiFi would be wrong? Granted wh...Jump to post
I'm curious why PIT (an airport & city I've never stepped foot in) is getting all the hate here while many mid-small market airports across the US do the exact same thing. Here in DAB for example, B6 has gotten millions from the airport, city, county, and local businesses to maintain & start...Jump to post
Ugh, the days when you could fly 747's domestically. Now, you're lucky if you get a one off 767, 777, 787, or A330.Jump to post
Sounds like this traitor needs to be disbarred. It's one thing to leave the GOP over the orange man, the rest of the party backing him, immigration issues, international relation issues, racism etc. It's an entirely different matter leaving over a man that was falsely accused.

Looks good, those interiors needed an updating badly, hopefully more aircraft will be updated soon.Jump to post

I don't really get WN's fleet strategy on the routes they operate. For example, one of the routes I fly a lot MCO-BDL sees both the -700 and -800 or MAX-8. Even worse back in the "classic" days, it saw -300's, -700's, and -800's. Same flights as well but on different days. Do they use the ...Jump to post
I find it odd that the CEO of one of the largest airlines in the world doesn't understand how JFK works or what is happening there. This isn't ATL, Delta can't come in and push other airlines out of a terminal that isn't theirs. As punishment, kick DL out of T4 and have them use only T2 and remote b...Jump to post

It was a combination of three things: 1. AA’s race to the bottom 2. Commuter carrier not paying jack and therefore scrapping the bottom of the candidate barrel 3. Lazy FA I have also had full beverage service on short hops by WN and AS. The FA’s have announced that they will attempt a beverage serv...Jump to post
I'll take connecting in ATL or CLT any-day over driving to MCO. I only fly out of MCO when DAB prices are $200+, and at that point MCO and the shuttle or parking are cheaper.
FLL could be successful, if Silver makes it work and offers decent fares not only nonstop but connecting onward as well.
I tell most international visitors that the middle of the country is the ‘armpit’ of the country. Once they visit a place like Indiana or something, they all agree. It’s just different than the rest of the country. Not bad, but not America’s best or brightest example of ‘land of the free’ And yes, ...Jump to post

In many jurisdictions the agent's posting of Abcde's boarding pass is blatant violation of privacy law, which can put the violator in jail. Like where? North Korea? Nazi Germany? Arizona?

I'm always amazed at how an entire airline gets thrown under the bus because of the actions of 1 or a few people. Yup, according to many in this thread the entire airline needs to be shutdown and every single employee who has ever worked for them needs to be jailed. All over someone named abcdefghi...Jump to post

The fact that the agent laughed is understandable. The fact that the agent started calling others and posted it in social media is unacceptable.

As someone who has BDL as one of my home airports, as much as I would like to see this I can't see it happening unless they know something I don't. Currently they operate out of Gate A26, which is the only gate they use. They would have to steal/borrow a gate from UA and/or AA if they were expanding...Jump to post
