Are you actually saying that James Alex Fields committing vehicular homicide makes Antifa's violence acceptable? And why did he "need" a 500+ HP Dodge Challenger?

is there enough of a market for both WN as AS? Given the sheer size of the market, I'd say there's more than enough for UA, AS, and WN to co-exist.

I am concerned for AS over the debt they racked up buying an airline with so few hard assets.

Well I don't think there's much question that the A319ceo and A320ceo fleet will exit, but the A321neo fleet is a question mark.

I second that. The airline industry doesn't care about public perception. VX didn't care about how the fans felt about the acquisition. People just have to face it...VX is no more.

That would be weird considering many of the airports the freighters go don’t have jet bridges. I sure do miss the seats in the 400s. Much more padding and more comfortable imo. I would imagine if the 400's were still in service they'd be getting the new interiors. Aren't some 700's still using the ...Jump to post
Actually "consistency" is not the reason the Combi's went out the door.
