Re: JetBlue to Anchor new MCO Terminal

The 321LR will be deployed primarily for BOS-Eastern Europe (should have the legs to do that) and then out of FLL. The big goal at the south terminal is to allow B6 the room to grow. Right now at Airside 1 they are pretty restrained with a majority of their flights out 1-9 and occasionally seeing s...

The reason so many might be on is many jets especially in JFK might be getting MX and thus not fully shut down.

Re: Venezuela demands payment for jet fuel in Petros

You’d want the flight to go MIA-CCS-XXX-MIA. That’s really the best fuel management solution. The only reason the euro airlines are doing it otherwise is likely crew duty and safety. The whole reason for the planned stop is to avoid overnighting crews in CCS.

Re: A321ceo Question

All the a320 family share the same wing. It isn’t a thrust problem... The a321 simply doesn’t have enough wing area to allow it to climb to higher altitudes when it’s heavy. Sharklets help, they usually give you 1000-2000 feet compared to the wing rakes.
