I am very worried about the future state of our international flights.... I can easily see Wow going under (or canceling most US destinations) soon, which would leave us with nothing at the moment. If Condor decides to drop us as well, then we are back in the same boat we were in before (1 flight)....Jump to post
Thanks, Harry. Just re-uploaded both of them. Added 10% brightness to both and took out 10% contrast on the second one. I wasn't able to lift the shadows at all because due to the lighting of that image, adding even the slightest amount made haloing occur along the left wing.Jump to post
I just noticed the September #'s are out. Why the -12.8% Drop in International? Did something end earlier this year? http://www.flypittsburgh.com/getattachment/Newsroom/Airport-Statistics/September-2018-Short-E-Mail-Report.pdf.aspx?lang=en-US The CDG flight ended much earlier than it did in previou...Jump to post
The S80s seem to be completely confined to DFW in the January schedule. The three ORD flights (MSP, STL, RDU) are gone. They still show up in later schedules, but I'm guessing those aren't finalized yet and the S80s will probably stay put in DFW for the duration of their existence in the AA fleet. ...Jump to post
Some people from UA have previously commented on here that the L-UA B752s were not taken care of very well prior to the merger and therefore weren’t in the greatest shape. Also, the B739s, despite not having the performance that the B752s had, are much more efficient and have saved UA a lot of money...Jump to post
Ok, so I'm having a hard time trying to get the exposure right on both of these images. Both aircraft were flying around at a not-so-optimal time with regards to the lighting. I've tried my best with both but was wondering if anyone also had any feedback? https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airline...Jump to post
I’ll add that some of my photo uploads are somehow being duplicated in my queue. I had a photo accepted two days ago and that image was somehow duplicated and I now just got an unexpected double rejection. I’ve had to double check and so far I’ve caught a few copies that were unexpectedly sitting in...Jump to post
This is one I've always wondered about. :scratchchin: 5166243,5207127 The one on the left is a SkyWest bird whereas the one on the right is an Endeavor Air bird. You can clearly tell that the blue is much higher up on the fuselage of the OO aircraft that it is on the 9E one. Also, the registrations ...Jump to post
IIRC WW’s incentive is two years. So it is set to expire relatively soon. I really don’t know what to make of those numbers above. Since the data is annual, it does not show how loads are over a monthly basis. For example: If Dec/Jan loads were 50-60% and Jun/Jul loads were 80-90%, that would skew t...Jump to post
Anyone know where AA's 7M8s normally go for paint before delivery? Either the paint shop at RNT or GEG. (BFI might have one also but I’m not sure.) Edit: Now that I think about BFI has to have one, duh. Interesting. Was wondering since it appears that N338RS ferried BFI-ARA for paint. Thought that ...Jump to post

I hate to be “that guy”, but we already had a thread on this topic a little over a month ago.
Jeb Brooks just put up a nice review of the EWR-SIN leg in J class:
One thing I totally forgot about B6 on PIT-FLL is when they launched the route in 2014, it was discussed that they were targeting connections to the Caribbean. While B6 did get decent loads on the route, I doubt they were getting any connecting traffic on those flights. Is that just speculation, or...Jump to post
I agree with what Preston said above. Although the rejections on the appeal should've been given on the initial rejection. I'm baffled how that was missed on the first screen.Jump to post

Honestly I would bin the wing view based off of the PM given. I'm not sure if it would work at 1024 or not. N7869A: Quality, needs CW N520JB: Blurry, quality N569JB: Borderline OS in some spots N461UA: Blurry, noisy N288UP: OS titles, needs CCW, noisy, marginal quality N965AT: Blurry, quality, high ...Jump to post
You beat me to posting this thread. Oh how the irony would’ve played out if the flight was operated by N232FR “Sammy the Squirrel”. :lol: 4860511 Seriously though, what an absolute degenerate. Not only needing “emotional support” from a pet squirrel(?), but having the audacity to refuse deboarding a...Jump to post
You both caught me at the right time. Just went back and gave it .20 CW rotation. Any better?

I'm stuck with this one. Does anyone think this looks too bright and off-level?
https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... 4e3f50218f
Thanks in advance.
JetBlue would be mad to cut frequency on that route. Delta is bleeding money on that route whereas JetBlue is breaking even. I knew that DL was the worst performer on the route but I didn’t know B6 wasn’t affected too bad. So if they are at least breaking even, that’s good. If DL is bleeding money ...Jump to post
https://www.hellojetblue.com/writable/images/Network/chart2-01.png WOW! Of all this, the most surprising to me is the dropping of FLL-PIT/BWI/DTW (LGB is not surprising). These are fairly large markets, although have always been low yielding for B6. Happy to see the addition of GYE, as well as fina...Jump to post
Really unfortunate. JetBlue hasn’t been able to make anything from PIT work outside of BOS. I too think NK adding frequencies and WN going 2x daily in the Spring hurt them. I’m worried about BOS as well. From what it seems, the route is an absolute bloodbath between them and DL. With B6 trying to cu...Jump to post
Thanks guys for the awesome insight. A lot of these posts have been very interesting to read, especially the last couple. If B6 chops a lot of these cities, I too am curious as to where they will deploy those aircraft. I imagine they will take those freed up E190s/A320s and just add frequencies to r...Jump to post
Anyone know what’s up with N588NW here?
I'm very curious about this too. Not that I would start taking pics with it and upload them to here... I just did a report about the new smartphone cameras vs DSLRs and it seems like a lot of photographers say that DSLRs are still superior in terms of quality and customizing settings to specific con...Jump to post
Condor extended PIT!!! Late May to mid-Sept flights are now loaded. Still 2x weekly but I'll take it! Of course DE updates the schedule a day after I predicted the old schedule was what we were going to get. :flamed: So no 3rd weekly frequency but the season is just as long as this past year. I too...Jump to post
So who saw this coming?
OneJet has yet to resume service from Pittsburgh International as planned

Not only a lot of frequency reductions for AA at PHL, but quite a few capacity downgrades as well. Skimming through AA's site, quite a few routes that gained more mainline this past year (STL, PIT, DTW, MSP, PVD) are losing a lot of mainline capacity/flights in January and replaced with smaller equi...Jump to post
N54GZ: Trailing edge of the wing looks OS but otherwise passable. N51ZM: Front part of the aircraft is borderline soft but I'd say it's passable. B-1165: Passable N259DS: Noise on the green part of the fuselage. N308UP: Tough call on framing. It feels a little low but I checked the image with grids ...Jump to post
One thing to consider with DE is that most of the cities comparable to PIT top out at 3x weekly. There aren’t any cities with frequencies higher than that. -PHX was 2x weekly this year, will be going 3x weekly in 2019 -MSY returns as 2x weekly -PIT was 3x weekly for a portion of 2018, but will be 2x...Jump to post
The discrepancy is way worse on social media. I'd say nearly less than 5% of the people I follow on Instagram post military or GA pics. Almost everything is commercial aviation, which generates all of the views. I've seen people I follow flat out say that they have zero interest in military aviation...Jump to post
There’s really not much for DE and WW to do as these shenanigans are entirely because of Trego-Dugan. This topic has been talked about several times already but they are literally the worst. I have yet to see a single time where they get the belts in internationals moving in under 30 minutes. There ...Jump to post
Lot B787: Looks a bit OS to me but since the last one was rejected for soft, idk how that could be rejected for OS. Exposure looks ok to me. C-FENY: Nose area is borderline. I'd say soft at best. N906DL: Front half of the aircraft looks blurry. Also, seems like there's some sort of blotching near th...Jump to post
So DE has updated FRA-MSY for 2019 and it will be returning at 2x weekly. Yet FRA-PIT is still showing 2x weekly starting 6/28/19. I think it's safe to say that will be the frequency we'll be stuck with for next summer. A bit of a shame, but I can definitely see why. DL increasing capacity, being da...Jump to post
I still think you would get hit with a rejection here for that image being hazed. Frankly, I'm very surprised someone there said it was passable, there are wavy lines along the edges of the wing plus the nose seems blurry. It's worth noting that different sites have different standards, based off of...Jump to post
Any idea where this rumor is originating from? If true, it's interesting that they now want to return. Didn't they cut JFK only a few years ago? They just cut it in October 2017... Oh wow, much more recent than I thought. Anyway, seems strange that they want to return to a route that they dropped o...Jump to post
