For today, I guess this would be easier Long-haul: International flights Medium-haul: Cross-country flights Short-haul: Domestic flights Cool. The CLE-YYZ flight I once took was long-haul.

Price sensitivity. One-stop or connecting flights are often cheaper when priced. Also, some passengers may desire a one or two-night stopover in Anchorage. Also from a cost-perspective, crew block times may be advantageous because no spare flight crews are required. Two medium haul legs do not requ...Jump to post
Besides local feed from Alaska state, AS could use feed from the following routes: Chicago–O'Hare, Los Angeles, Portland (OR), Seattle/Tacoma, Las Vegas, Phoenix–Sky Harbor. They may want to add a few more routes such as SFO/ANC, BOI/ANC, DEN/ANC, YYC/ANC, YEG/ANC, YXF/ANC, etc. to generate feed. O...Jump to post
If CBS had spoken to actual Allegiant pilots and maintenance people -- a decent cross section -- CBS would have been told that there was nothing to see here, and they were 3 years late, if at all.

Hi all, I'm an aviation enthusiast from England stationed in Cambodia for business; I follow the industry a lot, including the forums, safety news and the famous tv series, and have become quite conscious/nervous/(paranoid?) about flying (I'd always choose a BA than a EZ or FR, which may have reduc...Jump to post
Back on topic, I'm glad that Delta have dropped this ridiculous bullying charade. Now, if only they would do the same with the ME3. I agree but I doubt they'll ever give up whining about the ME3. Too bad, because they could put their energies to more useful things like fixing Endeavor's operation o...Jump to post
well as stated just slightly above, they cancelled CDG-JFK so this little whimsical joke about DL is long past its 2 second window of giggles The OP himself stated that the CDG-JFK flight was operated, albeit with a different flight number and a day later than scheduled.

I was going to say i didn't realize there was such a strict set of rules for this forum. The OP asked a simple question.

Most of Allegiant's flight originate and terminate at the same bases. Bases, that's plural so it doesn't qualify. Besides, "most" isn't good enough. It has to be "all" instead of "most" and as said before only single-based airlines with every flight in/out of that base...Jump to post
Just a quick note but why the ACFT in your title rather than Aircraft it's only four letters more :-) Because he's planning a LCC. Fewer letters means less typing which means lower labor costs.

Delta needs to jump on flights to SLC. SEA and AMS/CDG before someone else does! Who is going to jump on it? The demand for CMH-SLC and CMH-SEA for O/D traffic can't be that big.

Possibly the only smaller hub in the US other than DTW is SLC.

I'm not really catching onto that, reason being, why is someone going to go ILM-JFK-SEA when there's plenty of Midwest and West markets that are connectable from DTW? ILM-ATL-SNA makes sense, but as a secondary west coast and Asia flow, it should be done through DTW. Also, take into account the rel...Jump to post

A lot of international cuts for Delta. Also interesting that after moving BGR from DTW to JFK it is being reduced. Interesting - maybe. Surprising - no. The BGR/JFK flights are operated by Endeavor.

Of course, this could have been worse - recall the EZE-JFK flight in the 1990's where the extremely drunk pax in 1st Class actually did a #2 on a food cart.

As an airline customer, if the airline damages our baggage, we are given $1500 no questions asked. The point is though, if the airline damages our luggage, we get $1500 automatically.

The opposite was true at DL - at every level, the airline seemed customer-service oriented. Is this a common sentiment? Is there something culturally different at AA vs DL?
