Re: NFL 2018 Charters (Airlines/Flight Numbers)

Does anyone know what the Indianapolis Colts are using? I am assuming Delta. The Colts will fly IND-SEA to play their first pre-season game. I sure hope so, they just named Allegiant Air as their official airline of the Colts. if they do use Allegiant they might have more breakdowns then Andrew Luc...

Steelers: once again on Miami Air B738s. http://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/LL384 http://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/LL385 Really lame, especially since the Pens also use them here. Was hoping they’d switch to another carrier with widebodies. :( But I guess as long as it works out for...

Re: NFL 2018 Charters (Airlines/Flight Numbers)

Oakland Raiders uses HA A330s. Do they? They had been, but a year or two ago, I heard they switched carriers. Hawaiian's been the Raider's Charter Airlines for the past 19 years. It was the Seahawks that changed a few years ago. Believe the year they went to the Super Bowl, but Hawaiian will also b...

Re: Airbus and Southwest

I can't imagine WN has talks with Airbus for any reason other than to squeeze Boeing for a few bucks on an order. Their entire operation has run on the 737 for 30+ years and given the continuity (parts, training, etc) between series and the size of their fleet, they don't have a particularly pressi...

Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2018

Looks like AA is the first to blink on the competitive PIT-BOS route. Being completely cut in January. PIT-RDU is also being reduced to less than daily. *Paging Delta Air Lines* Too much for AA with competition from B6 and DL both are BOS hub/Focus cities. IMO, AA will drop all non hub flying route...

Re: NFL 2018 Charters (Airlines/Flight Numbers)

Anyone know if the Steelers are still going with dual Miami Air B738s like they did last season after AA dropped them? It wouldn't shock me if the Steelers returned to Miami Air this season; we'll know by Wednesday when they charter to PHL for their game against the team from the wrong side of the ...

I don't think this has been mentioned yet, but PIT-DFW on NK appears to be getting axed for good. No longer bookable after September 5th and Wiki indicates that it is being cut.

Can't say I'm surprised.


Between AA to DFW and WN to DAL, I can't say that I'm shocked by NK dropping the route either.

2017-2018 NBA Charter Flight Numbers

I know that this might not be the most exciting of topics, considering that the NBA pretty much contracts all charter flights via DL (with three exceptions - Dallas, Houston and Miami), but here's the list of all NBA charter flight numbers. All flights listed in this original post are DL unless othe...

Re: VS A346 en route LHR-MSY currently

Not sure which VS flight will be carrying the LA Rams, though I wouldn't be surprised if they had a B788 since that's what VS uses on their LAX-LHR flights from what I've seen on FlightAware. Their LAX-LHR are all 789, with the occasional A346 sub. VS doesn't have 788s. Ugh... I can't type tonight....

Re: Will Southwest Airlines ever expand into Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, or Wyoming?

Southwest doesn't operate in any of the seven least populated states...of which yours are five of them (in addition to Vermont and Delaware). I don't think that's a coincidence - aside from Alaska, a lot of the flights in to these states are done with regional jets, which Southwest of course does n...

Re: UA/B6 Merger Rumors Floating Again

UA/B6 would creat a significantly large mega-airline. Would this force Wall Streets hand to push for a DL/AA merger in response? Or would that set off a race between DL and AA to merge with WN not be left out as the bridesmaid with no one left to merge with? I would be shocked if AA or DL would eve...

Re: Will WN go with the bigger 737s?

Not true for one-way pricing. Alaska shows round trip selections as two one-way fares. And other airlines make it work using the "other" or "advanced" option although not as easy. And I believe WN doesn't have such a feature that lets you create an open jaw or multi-stop trip on...

Re: 2017 NFL Charters (Airlines/Flight Numbers)

It looks like the Steelers made it to KC before the storms arrived. They went to MKC instead of MCI. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/BSK384/history/20171014/1800Z/KPIT/KMKC http://flightaware.com/live/flight/BSK385/history/20171014/1845Z/KPIT/KMKC Don't most sports teams charter into MKC instead...
