The closest I've come to it is a medical diversion, flying DL LAS-ATL we were over Oklahoma when the ding "are there any medical professionals onboard" announcement was made, credit to the crew up front, they kept everyone informed of what was going on including the point at which we were ...Jump to post

Most people I see who bring fruit/veggies through are just made to throw it out and go on their merry way.

I like the concept of 'modern retro', but I can't get behind this particular execution. I don't think they should take the tulip or globe in the next rebrand; they should start fresh. However, I really would love to see them acquire the last TWA livery from AA, replace the metallic red with metal b...Jump to post
Reportedly also a heavy alcohol abuser, to the point of alcoholic pancreatitis. What a waste of talent and gone far too young.

Should we discuss the very comfortable club Europe? Or spending a few thousand on a club world ticket, then have to cough up more for seat selection, but hey, there is their international first class, which I would rate as one of the best international business classes out there. So yeah, 4 star, no...Jump to post
It's DY's MO, they are creating hubs at US airports, looks at what is happening at LAX, OAK and FLL, multiple flights from multiple airports in Europe, the question is, will they reach critical mass before they run out of money. Also, in this month's in-flight magazine they were listing flights out ...Jump to post
Itll be tough to compete on a product basis with a A321 vs a 777 or A330 that everyone else will be flying. I know itll be fun and cool that Jetblue will be flying trans-atlantic, potentially, but lets be realistic as to what the product theyll be up against. Compare B6 Mint to BA club world, I kno...Jump to post
That makes it a more interesting question. While 1-2-1 is the current gold standard in this regard for J, the need for airlines to still put as many people as possible in the cabin means that most of those fly in a (reverse) herringbone-style set-up (example: Delta One A330/744, Zodiac Cirrus) whic...Jump to post
$599 ow J (of any variety) is not a real money maker on TATL (I know you said "minimum"). Just because the distance/flight time is similar to US transcon, does not mean the costs and market are equivalent. Realistically, I think we'd be looking at double that amount+ to be compelling for ...Jump to post
I think for BOS-Europe to succeed, B6 will need to have a lot of paying Mint customers. I would think $599 minimum and 85+% load factor. Find the routes with highest business demand and those will be the ones B6 picks. Also, B6 definitely does not want to get into a race-to-the-bottom fight with No...Jump to post
While WT+ is certainly better than WT, I would rate DY premium as superior except for 2 things, the IFE selection is a little small and food is hit and miss, is there is a curry dish on the BA flight it is hard to beat.
Either way I would still take DY.
Seems eerily similar to Southwest 3472, doesn't it? I'm surprised it wasn't mentioned earlier... Very similar from the engine pictures. That aircraft's (3472) registration was N766SW which is 6 numbers away from this one which leads one to believe that these two aircraft were built in the same time...Jump to post
Your principles are great, but these ideas wouldn't even get a low-level congressional committee hearing. Structurally, the US legislative process is so lop-sidely pro-business as to be laughable.

Delta has such a PR opportunity. Fly a plane down there and offer them $199 plus taxes to get home. The MSP media will love it and will be very cheap publicity! additionally they will win over some flyers to be loyal to delta forever. 100%, find a plane, find a crew, load it with food and drink, th...Jump to post

As with most here, i've never had an issue not putting in a middle name, off the top of my head the only issue i've had with a reservation was on BA back in 2002, I was flying LAX-LHR in First, the credit card I had used to buy the ticket had been cloned, the issuer (I want to say Citibank) killed t...Jump to post
Otherwise, Willy will cut Norwegian service level further, hard to imagine. Just to answer this briefly, i've done 4 long haul legs on DY in premium over the last 6 weeks, for comparison to BA's WT+ Better seats on DY, more seat pitch and width Food is a wash, i've had great food on both, bad on bo...Jump to post
Yep, there are currently 56 300ER in Delta's fleet. And unfortunately no, as DL_Mech posted these frames clocked 80k flight hours and 29k miles (Which I believe for the miles is average). It's game over for these two.

The quick and simple answer is yes, but then again so would Airbus if the US puts santions back into place in regards to Iran.
You can also throw in China as well, the reality is that Boeing is a huge, easy target for tariffs.
