Union drives aside, I have never met a group of people doing more stupid things on social media (while in uniform) than Flight Attendants. Selfies in uniform, selfies in engine, selfies next to boarding door while boarding, selfies in cockpit, posting while in the air. As a pilot, I would never drea...Jump to post
Shirley you can’t be serious. haha Berlin is a major city and warrents more than one flight to New York City. Just dont want to see a.netters complain when an ME3 or Norwegian Flag of Convenience carrier starts the route. This is the problem with legacy monopolies.

As an American that is removed from day to day German politics, I simply dont understand this boondoggle. I remember DEN had a baggage issue that caused delays. But I could never imagine that in a First World country you can have this level of corruption and incompentence. The only thing that comes ...Jump to post
T7 is not a dumpster at all It is a very nice little terminal that is bursting at the seams between 4 and 8 pm. It is great the rest of the day. I wish people on here would stop calling it a dump. You want a dump? Terminal 2 is a dump. The new Delta terminals at LAX are dumps. LGA is a dump. Termina...Jump to post

Actually, they have a large west coast presence, but it focused around getting Bostonians and New Yorkers to/from the west coast.

It’s peak Presidents Day recess. Whole NE is off and in Florida.
Probably not best time to look at FL frequencies as they will be at their
To do a better comparison you should take a shoulder month and compare schedules. I imagine MCO for seats, LGA for flights.
They're growing load wise, but a lot of people I've spoken to are turned off by the one flight per day. Also hampers connections through the Northeast. I wonder if they've considered a second RON flight, at least during the peak season? They had no flights to NYC before and if B6 left, they would h...Jump to post
Of course it has to do with Hawaii flying. Flight out, flight back. Pilots aren’t flying PHX-LAX-HNL in one day. Hawaii is a special flight with special padding for days with stronger winds, bad weather etc. Working it into a larger pairing is also a pain. Hawaii trips are 3 day trips.

JB losing around 150 pilots per year to other airlines. When that gets high enough, and classes are unfilled, management will do something. Until then, the game gets played.

Kids on vacation.
Not everyone is a middle-aged professional. haha
All kidding aside, maybe a better screening process?
Pilots cant use straight DOH They need a percentage factor as well. FAs at VX accept that the top of their list goes in the 2000s at AS. Pilots will not except this. If they are 10 percent, they want to be near 10 percent. DOH, percentage, career expectations...all taken into account when merging pi...Jump to post

Chicago, Houston and London are not NY and DC. The demand for the close in airport far exceeds that of the larger airport. Like Milan. If the perimeters went away, a balance would be found over time due to size restrictions of the close in airports. But the initial phase would hurt JFK, and moreso I...Jump to post
Actually we lost 2 US House seats in 2011 as we fell from third to fourth place behind Florida. Last year, we had a net loss of population.
Keep cheering and jeering from the stands as we lose political might in DC and tax dollars to fund our state and city government.
Turning a shovel in NY requires years of approvals from various state and city agencies. Several rounds of lawsuits court. And a huge budget that pays for fully funded pensions and healthcare of all the union employees involved in the process above. It is harder and more expensive to spearhead a pro...Jump to post
You’re missing something important. Delta doesnt need anything from AA. They have a large hub at LGA and a large hub at JFK. They almost have too many slots at LGA with perimeter rule. They simply dont have enough cities to serve with the slots they have. And they dont need more JFK slots. They are ...Jump to post
Fun fact: JB was supposed to be a Boeing 737 airline. Boeing screwed that up real badly with Neeleman.

1. In most places it is illegal
2. Costs a lot of money (2 engine taxi and where and tear from reversers)
3. Kinda dangerous
Didnt they try to buy a BK F9? F9 pilots reached a deal with BB at Republic (the dumbest move in avaition history) to fend them off. The rest is history. They just legally grew without F9. And I believe F9 pilots are still the lowest paid in the industry, been sold again, and are in an ongoing labor...Jump to post
You get to see the weakness of SLC vs DEN in above posts.
DEN has better location (rj rangewise) and is a larger city.
SLC is a great hub. Is there a need for a 319 to fly RIC to SLC? Probably not.
CUN is a grear airport for those that havent been there.
New, modern, spacious. Controllers are decent.
Cancun lacks excess gates. It needs a better taxiway system, especially to/from 12L.
There is a new terminal opening on the west side of the airport that I guess could be
used for a “hub.”
It is a seasonal adjustment.
ORD, for some screwed up reason, is operated as a seasonal city for B6. The season runs May-Oct in past years. If that is any guide, by Nov, B6 will run 3 daily to BOS and 2 daily to JFK.
One year, they ran the third daily to JFK thru Dec.
The B6 ORD frequencies are seriously seasonal. By fall, they usually fall back to 2 daily JFK, 3 daily BOS...because Chicago is a seasonal small town like PBI or SRQ.Jump to post

Come on guys...enough of this topic already. It’s like a bi monthly discussion between Transcon F and Airbuses.
No one knows what they’re going to do.
But they didnt overpay for VX to ditch the airbuses and transons. And they have a new lounge at JFK.
Follow that logic tree
There’s no way UA adds secondary India.
Those plans go back to Continental in a different time and a different place.
I’m not saying EK is going to chase them off the nonstop route, But United would be doing what nobody else has done successfully in adding More India.
