I'm not sure we will learn anything more from AA. The problem he had was with the British Airways portion of the trip, although the AA reservation system was involved. I don't think it matters much whether AA or BA was more to blame or fully at fault. Point is, the customer did not receive the prod...Jump to post
You could certainly count the hubs of all failed airlines, big and small, like Pan Am, TWA, Eastern, Allegheny, Air Florida, etc...there are hundreds on the list.

Both Air Transat pilots to deny the charges and one United FO for sentencing (10 months). The other United FO received a 10 month sentence a week or so ago. Good to hear.

Easy to say while he's counting his wad. I think he's been classless through this whole process.

Every single Virgin America loyalist that I've talked to has been extremely disappointed by the merger. Many are simply not going to fly Alaska. They are going to fly other airlines instead.

Every May 1 protesters (most of whom don't have to worry about missing work) take to the streets in Seattle and start riots.

Here's a question for you all. Will DL continue to support SEA has a hub when the airline industry goes south and the airlines like DL start to bleed red ink? My thought is that DL will be history in SEA as a hub. If you want to know that answer, just look at how DL has supported other hubs during ...Jump to post

And there are plenty of folks that would take the 5 hour layover just to avoid the disaster that is UA and AA at ORD.. Do you have any evidence to justify this? Or to quantify "plenty"?

I think it's a matter of time before SEA-DSM gets announced on an E175. Why? AS would have no feed on the DSM end, there's no significant SEA-DSM traffic, and other Pacific NW to DSM passengers don't have to backtrack if they connect on UA thru DEN. It might be a route worth trying only when WN lea...Jump to post
Kind of surprised at WVU, Butler, and Purdue using bus transportation. It looks like Iowa State took a Miami Air charter:

Wouldn't seem to make much sense to fly ORD-SEA-HKG when there are nonstop flights on CX and UA. Same goes for PVG, PEK, and other Asian cities served from SEA. Even if you're flying DL for some reason it would make no sense to fly ORD-SEA-PEK or ORD-SEA-PVG: ORD-SEA-PEK would have a 6:55 layover i...Jump to post

Because that's exactly what it is. If planes are full in the DTW Asia market add capacity there to handle the increased traffic like they have been doing ever quarter at the other hubs except for Detroit.

Just another move as they continue to divert more traffic away from connecting at the Detroit hub when traveling to Asia in favor of flowing it over Seattle. It's a shame they have to take traffic away from one hub to make another work. True, but this is just 3 flights a day with no feed at one end...Jump to post

Not gonna happen. If you make special rules for people who need seet-belt extensions, you are going to have a desperate impact on pregnant women, who are a protected class in the United States.
