Does this mean it is a two aisle aircraft? #407 is not ambiguous: The result is a hybrid cross-section for the fuselage, blending the passenger comfort of a twin-aisle on the main deck and the cargo compartment of a single-aisle below deck. 'It is a geometry that enables single aisle economics and ...Jump to post
Very unlikely ORD will, as it's trend has been in the exact opposite trajectory, with LAX having surpassed it yet again. ORD's growth had been constrained by it's runway configuration but that is mostly now fixed with 5 parallel runways and a 6th approved but not scheduled yet. Now ORD is constrain...Jump to post

There's got to be more to this story. Dogs don't randomly attack people for no reason. Labs are a particularly docile breed.

For the less knowledgable on this site, some questions: How is an ATC area equate to or differ from and FIR? Does FIR really equate to control over a sovereign country's air space? It would seem like a country still controls it own air space even if it shares an ATC or FIR area, correct? Those FIR a...Jump to post
AA 191. A big lesson in performing scheduled maintenance by the book and not via shortcuts. I understand this was more of a contributing factor, but did AA 191 have any impact on aviation design. As I remember, the DC-10 had it's primary and secondary hydraulic systems co-located so when the engine...Jump to post
I know this has been discussed before but with the Air Berlin and Alitalia experiments collapsing, Qatar in One World, could this be a sign that EY is joining Star Alliance? EY seems like it may need to be in an alliance as they don't have the economy of scale to compete with EK. I think UA could us...Jump to post
THANK YOU kngkyle!!! So the diagram on Curbed was wrong because that diagram shows the concourse wrapping around the HVAC buildings with the gates facing south and east. From the above rendering and photo, the concourse runs only east/west and the gates face south, tucked in pretty efficiently. The ...Jump to post
Don't need to see construction drawings, but some design drawings would be nice. Some basic renderings in plan view and/or 3D. I am sure they exist. Also, even if the project is privately financed, it is still on public property. I have worked on such projects in the city and you better believe the ...Jump to post
There will be a walkway from the Current L concourse North to the HVAC building, where the walkway will turn east. The gates will require the demolition of a building and the relocation of outdoor parking for snow removal equipment. Simply put the gates will between the HVAC building and the Alpha ...Jump to post
There has been much discussion on this forum of the ME3 vs. EU carriers but someone should thank Mr. Hogan for the enormous amount of cash that EY pumped into the EU through Alitalia and Air BerlinJump to post

So what happens now, does anyone know. Could we see a shutdown soon? If so, do you think AA or UA would add an additional seasonal flight from ORD. How about MIA, JFK, LAX and BOS? AA and DL have some real opportunities to fill a void... but do they have the slack in their fleet?Jump to post

I only know mostly about ORD, and I can see it happening.. there is a 9 gate T5 (international) expansion going on, as well as a T3 AA 5 gate expansion.

It's not that complicated. I believe that generally, people have a very large capacity to recognize the difference between fair and unfair.

Again, I don't think we have really seen an alternate succeed like FLL has since deregulation in the U.S. What MDW, it came back from the dead and has been maxed out for years?

Virgin Hotels should probably be known as Virgin Hotel, since it's a chain of one property.
Another way to look at this is the 787 has reduced the amount of double connections, especially over the Pacific, hard to argue. Someone that was flying AUS-SIN might have flown AUS-SFO-NRT-SIN. But now they can do AUS-SFO-SIN. That has eliminated the connection in one of the hubs, NRT, thereby cont...Jump to post
With the new runway construction at ORD, CPE is projected to rise significantly. I'd like to see the 2017 figure and the projections for 2018 through 2020. Shouldn't the 2015 CPE already include the three new runways? 9L/27R, 10C/28C & 10R/28L were already complete or nearing completion at that...Jump to post
I asked this same question the other day in this older thread.
Construction permits were reportedly issued in January yet still nothing, not even a basic plan.
This makes sense with their planes sitting down there already. Surprised that no US airlines did this earlier.Jump to post
Yes, but not T3L, according to this article, construction permits have already been issued.

Since ORD finished their runway reconfiguration it is not bad anymore congeston-wise... The congestion has moved from the runways to the gates. There is a severe gate shortage that forces planes to sit on taxiways and in penalty boxes waiting for an open gate, delays of 30-45 minutes is not uncommo...Jump to post
With AV announcing BOS-BOG today, it means that ORD may be more of a possibility now. Wow, if they can make BOS work, I would think ORD should be able to work. Chicago's metro area is double that of Boston and ORD has a huge amount of connection opportunities on UA. Chicago is only 100 miles further.Jump to post
