Re: What was American Like Before the Merger

There is some truth to this, but the reality is, bad management can ruin anything. I'm not a DL fanboy or UA basher by any stretch of the imagination, but anyone that has been in this industry for more than a few years knows that DL under Anderson worked out remarkably well and UA under Smisek was ...

Re: What was American Like Before the Merger

A lot of that in my opinion had to do with the pre-merger livery/marketing vs post merger.

They stopped it not long after the MS990 tragedy... 2001ish.
Not sure if it made it to 9/11, but almost certain that it didn't go past it.


Correction: Egyptian 990 was a case of murder. No matter what Egyptian officials say.

That doesn't make it not a tragedy?

Re: Which US Airport Is Most Likely To Be Dehubbed?

I get that the OP may be genuinely interested in the next dehubbing, but those days are long gone. The slew of airline mergers that took place post 9/11 and around that time put airlines in recovery and cost-cutting mode. Nowadays, airlines are strong enough to weather even pretty severe downturns ...

Re: Former MLB Pitcher Roy Halladay Plane Crash

You're going to find this will be pilot error. I can't find the link now, but there was another article that described the marketing for the A5 as a recipe for disaster. It's touted as a jet ski with wings. This is just asking for inexperienced pilots that think they are in control to quickly lose ...

Which US Airport Is Most Likely To Be Dehubbed?

With the discussions going on in the forums about which airports are most likely to become hubs, I thought I would reverse the question and ask which airports are most likely to be dehubbed, or at the very least a decrease in service?

Not sure how many a north gates are going to each airline, but my understanding was that all of the airlines currently in A will move to A north, and AA will take over A.

Re: Finnair starts weighting some passengers voluntarily

The much easier way to do it would be to put a fully fueled ready to go Plane on Scales. Then take the weight - then add the crew - take the weight, add the luggage - take the weight and then add the passengers and take the weight again. I found pictures of scales the plane would just roll onto (an...

Re: Effects of hypothetical Catalan independence in aviation industry

I don't know much about the Catalonian independence story, so would someone tell me if the independent Catalonia would be a part of the EU? I would assume so, but if it wasn't, that would surely not bode well for airlines.

Re: Future of Hilton Head Island HXD

If you're headed to Sea Pines or thereabouts, the drive from SAV is around 50 minutes. Form HHH, it's about 25 minutes. . If you could get from northern HH (HHH) to SAV in 25 minutes, then HHH would never have had commercial service. It's 43 miles, half of that on a 45/55 MPH road with roughly 15 s...
