It's an inch wider than the rest of the seats. I find it odd that Bombardier chose to add some comfort to passengers by doing this as opposed to doing whatever it takes to minimize costs at the expense of said comfort. Reminds me of the 767 and its comfy, popular 2-3-2 arrangement. Alternatively the...Jump to post
This is a response from someone who graduated with a Bachelor's in AE recently but working to be an airline pilot. Only do either/or if you're passionate. The way I see it, one career path starts easy, gets harder (airline pilot), one career path starts difficult, becomes less difficult (engineering...Jump to post
Indeed, not a fan of being authoritative and absolute when it comes to relatively mild offenses or when it’s a “first time offense” (and nothing serious). I don’t see much accomplishment with ridding of experienced FAs unless they were creating a bad culture or in other words, being bad examples, wh...Jump to post
UA need a total new branding, just like AA with the fuzzy flag. People here should come up with some new fresh images. Doug Parker was unhappy with choice of livery implemented under predecessor, Tom Horton in 2013. One prominent media outlet said the tail looks like a shower curtain. He opened it ...Jump to post
If only liveries were as appealing and colorful as soda can brandings. Imagine if your Sprite can looked the same as a Coca Cola but different colors.Jump to post
Well I'm sure all of us as much as we'd like an optimal airplane for this MOM section, we'd also would hope the design is pretty "sculpted" like a 757 as opposed to just a generic, boring design. The article gave us a pretty rendering, but it's pretty prospective. Anyone recall the 787's e...Jump to post

I could have sworn a few days ago I saw a thread regarding summer 2018 DFW international routes, but instead, most long haul routes were now 788, and the Hong Kong flight was switched to CX equipment.... what did I miss?Jump to post
I was thinking UA could operate a fleet of a321LRs and a338s to replace its 75/767s, but I think they’re already pretty invested in ordering the 797. It’s a bit big, this new plane, in between the 757 and 767. I wonder if they’d consider using a321LRs on routes too big for the hypothetical 797. Par...Jump to post
Only the most hardcore of hardcore-Boeing-fanboys ever believed the rumour that production of the pax 767 was going to be restarted. This could point to the 797 being closer to reality than we think. It at least puts aside the 767 pax option as a reason to delay/hold off the 797. I talked to a Boei...Jump to post
What about COS? G4 seems to operate crom secondary airports in several cities (Phoenix-Mesa, Columbus-Rick, Orlando-Sanford, “Chicago”-Rockford). Doesn’t have to be a hub, but maybe about six or ten destinations yearly and then many more during the ski seasonJump to post
From Flightglobal... Tinseth says today that potential customers for the NMA, which is aimed at replacing ageing 757 and 767 fleets, tell Boeing that they are happy waiting for an entry-into-service as late as 2025. The question is whether the airlines would be more than happy waiting unril 2025 fo...Jump to post
I think we’ll see wide bodies AUS-DFW before AUS becomes a major hub (30-40 million a year minimum, like Newark, but not like SAN). If AA wants to expand from AUS, they wouldn’t add new destinations: they’ll add frequencies or use larger equipment. Delta on the other hand... AUS already connects the...Jump to post
I'm biased in that I want to be an airline pilot myself, but I would not be in favor of reducing requirements _if_ it meant the skies would be unsafer. Having said that, the two pilots indeed had more than 1500 hours experience, so the cause of the crash was not quantity of flight time, but rather ...Jump to post
I would be excited to fly on an MD80 again. I last flew on one of Allegiant's in January, it may have been my last, unless I plan on flying East through Atlanta in the next couple of years. Same with the 757, except it seems like they're slowly becoming a transatlantic/long-range airliner exclusivel...Jump to post
Its simply two flights to cater to large event being held in San Diego this year. AF staff from LAX will oversee flight handling. They have done similar to Las Vegas in past. Indeed. Flew out of McCarran last January and there was an AF 77W there. There was some sort of convention there, I thought ...Jump to post

The 757 was the first jetliner I ever flew on, back in 2006, with Aeromexico. All I can remember is the plane being "pretty tall" off the ground (then again any aircraft would have seemed rather tall considering the aircraft I was on before was a Saab 340b). Unfortunately it's the only 757...Jump to post
Are their products comparable though? For one WN only offers one class, I’m not sure if that would be a turn off for business flyers who typically fly with many more frills and perks. It may benefit WN flyers to be able to connect long haul, but probably not so much those who fly OW since they can ...Jump to post

I'm surprised nobody has taken note that the 748 is the livery's maiden aircraft and not the a380 :P . I can't say I'm surprised, what were we expecting? Something distinct and creative? That's a rarity nowadays! (AC is one example) But it's not bad, just not impressive or eye-candy. It's a nice, fo...Jump to post
I'm curious as to why tphuang is so adamant about Delta not planning anything significant at AUS? Lets look at the facts as they stand. We know that Delta has spent a good amount of money for a very nice Skylounge and skydeck. Why would they do this if they were not planning to expand routes or inc...Jump to post
If MEX is Delta's Texas, then tell me Eddy: can you fly from Fort Lauderdale to MEX to connect to say OKC or ABQ ;) ? Or how about to MEM, Eppley, or BNA? Well to be fair I guess you can technically already connect to large cities via AMX which they own a good chunk (I forget the %age): DEN, DFW, IA...Jump to post
Ehh I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if the Lufthansa livery became just that; colored tail, white fuselage.Jump to post
I was thinking about this today or the day before. Even if two types aren't exactly similar (a bit under or over in size), they may still serve as adequate replacements, as we're seeing the supposed 797 replace the 757 (though I like to say it's a 767 replacement/upper end of 757 routes replacement)...Jump to post

The Commerce Department makes dumping and cvd margins, not the USITC.
Whether or not the reasoning is legitimate, 300% is criminal and I’ll cast some of the shame on the USITC for that. Does it honestly matter? The plane won’t sell with a 50% tariff would it?

All the aircraft look very attractive with this livery, even the a320s which usually aren’t considered such. Something about that grey underside. The yellow is much like Austrian’s blue they got rid of; doesn’t make sense but it’s a good addition.Jump to post
Hah, I’ve thought about doing something similar, but 8 shirts and 10 pants? Maybe not as much. Just to trim off a pound and a half maybe.

I've thought about this before in the past. I guess it boils down to operating costs/CASM of such a connection with a narrowbody versus just using something bigger capable of those routes non-ANC-stop but not overkill like the 787-9. Cue the MOM discussion (: A cool experiment, but as stated, with f...Jump to post
Regarding AUS-LAS, Delta has flown the route seasonally/sort of, I recall them sending a 737-800 last year around January, though I’m not sure if it was just for a day or for (up to) a few weeks.
I was looking at flights LAS-AUS and it appeared to be available on CR9s in a couple of weeks.
Um, no they don't. The 73G has never been seen nor sold as a 100-seat aircraft. It's far too large and heavy for that, and it barely sells even in its own market category, let alone one that it wasn'd designed for. Yeah that's my point, but Boeing insisted that the 737-700 (specifically the 7M7) is...Jump to post
Thank you for the response, I'm glad to see that BOS and RDU were doing well because the cancellation had me worried. Hopefully they will both become daily service. If Delta is moving the 717 to Florida, I wonder if RDU will be one of the first to receive the C series after the larger Delta hubs. M...Jump to post
Do you happen to know what happened with the RDU upgrade from a CRJ9 to a 717 that was cancelled? I was really wondering how the BOS and RDU service is doing. BOS appears to be doing well, its being upgauged from an A319 to an A320 effective March 5. As far as RDU, the route's LF's are in the high ...Jump to post
No because Boeing sees the 100-150 seat segment as one market which is already covered by the 737-700 at the bottom end of the spectrum.... closest to the bottom end.... Um, no they don't.
