Delta is chartering Volga-Dnepr AN124 to deliver support equipment including two deicing trucks to CDB in order to get N177DN ferried out. They should have brought a 767 engine too. But the aircraft is scheduled to leave CDB today: https://www.flightradar24.com/flight/dl9862 No engine change, but t...Jump to post
You could edit this thread down to about 6 posts that are actually on-topic. It would be an interesting thread if so limited. Cold Bay apparently has a population of about 110. There is the 20-room Cold Bay Lodge, a former FAA housing/dining facility, which is apparently nicely-equipped (Sat TV, In...Jump to post
Middle of the night in a stormy aluetian island. Anyone know what happened?
On January 29 BA will fly the A380 to Boston, and back out again the next morning. This rotation is normally a 787-9, so it brings up the question: Will this flight have a cabin crew normal for a A380, or normal for a 787-9 load (which the flights most certainly will be)? It is clearly a familiariz...Jump to post
AA could codeshare on SFO to: AUS, BOS, CUN, DEN, FLL, HNL, OGG, LAS, MCO, SAN However, this probably won't happen until these become AS flights. There's no sense in setting up the interline codeshare infrastructure with an IT system and airline that will be going away. Couldn't they just do a code...Jump to post

All those 3E with STL have been going on for years. I don't know where you got 0 flights from in the past. Also DL STL-DTW still shows 5 flights a day in July and August on their site for booking. So I'm not sure where that number came either. Thanks He pulls it straight from OAG. If that is the ca...Jump to post
JNU gets a daily 737-800. :roll: But, but, DL had to cancel a flight because of bad weather in JNU! OMGLOLZ!!!!! Serious side note...DL had 90+% load factors to JNU last summer on a 738. Would be cool to see them send the 757 back to town again, especially since the airport bought a new jetway to a...Jump to post

I know! Imagine how many other AS pax will be shocked to see they have been missing out on IFE equipped aircraft this whole time!

Aren't there still secondary slots available? Why don't they just bail and reapply?Jump to post
It's getting worse . FAR 117 time limits are biased and major fatigue issues are increasing in the US. The latest thing are the airlines requesting the FAA grant 9:45 flying time. Imagine 16 hours on duty flying 5 legs for a total of 9:45 of that is flying time on a snowy winter day. You will see m...Jump to post

It was probably EK 2515, some special DXB-SEA flight. https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/ek2515 .. A6-EEU aircraft.. I don't know its purpose however. Were there some recent Emirates cancellations to SEA? -EEU is heading to LAX from SEA. This is to clear the backlog caused by the delayed EK...Jump to post
WN holds flights all the time for connecting passengers, especially near the end of the day when it is the last flight to a destination. I have sat on a plane with everyone else boarded waiting for connecting passengers to arrive. Not for hours though. With the size of their schedule 1 delay could ...Jump to post
Can someone explain why Delta and Alaska didn't jointly terminate their relationship earlier? They haven't seemed friendly in a while and the parties to a contract can terminate at any time without penalty if both parties agree. Because they were still feeding each others flights and making a bunch...Jump to post
Do you ever spend time in the Bay Area? If you ask most business travelers how they'd compare AS with any of the legacies you'll pretty much get shrugs. Maybe they'll have taken a family vacation to Mexico on AS, but that's it. Awareness is limited. AS is a good airline, but I think your definition...Jump to post
Just kinda have a guess here. PEK is a mess right now because of the super serious haze situation. This might be related to that. Ah I see. But wouldn't it be easier to divert to a nearby airport like say PVG instead of flying all the way back to BKK? It's always better to bring the pax back to the...Jump to post
Hi Folks, I see on FR24 that last night's TG 686 from BKK to PEK was turned back to BKK after reaching close to its destination! The normal flight time is around 4 hours, and the aircraft turned back to BKK from a point north-west of Cangzhou City in the Hebei province of northern China. Here is th...Jump to post
The two airports I see AS being interested in is MSP and PHX. Both however, would require changes to the status quo though. MSP would be a target if AS could buy or displace Sun Country. PHX would be a target if AA dials down service there. I'm just shooting from the hip, but I really believe those...Jump to post
I would argue that network size *is* a huge factor for business travelers. I know a ton of Bay Area workers who absolutely hate United but still fly them because they offer the only non-stop flights where they want to go. AS has certainly become much larger in the Bay Area and much more competitive...Jump to post
It should be noted that there are common use gates in the USA but they are for carriers that don't have major operations at an airport. Also the airline generally uses the same common use gates day in and day out and can leave all of their equipment in the area.Jump to post

My bet is cc A. With the cc E prop spots being ripped up soon I'd be surprised if they put them there. Where will AC being going during construction?
If i were AS i would be more concerned about Delta eating up seats at my home airport then adding a new hub in a weird place. I think AS isn't going to take their eye off of SEA but, so far, DL isn't "eating up seats". AS has maintained it's position in SEA, despite DL adding flights. DL'...Jump to post
I think AS likes the idea of having two carriers operating their express routes. Apropos of this, I have been wondering what the legal ramifications would be for Alaska (Horizon) to take over some of the SkyWest flights that are currently under contract to American. This should not be the start of ...Jump to post
With all the attention on California, do you still think Horizon will expand at PDX once the EMB-175 arrive? I think if you look at what AS is doing with 175s out of SEA that is what they will likely do with 175s from PDX as a start. I also would expect many of the shuttle flights to turn it to 175...Jump to post
First you have ground school which can be 3 weeks to 2 mo this. Then above 10-14 days of simulator training. You will need some days of cpta training in there. Then you will need 20-50 hours in type with a check airman doing a certain amount of tskeoffs and landings. Pass a check ride, then your good.Jump to post
I don't believe Dallas Love is mentioned anywhere on that entire page other than the route map which doesn't even show the airports separately. That's damning. Is it also damning that San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, and New York don't break out the airports also? As you know, those airports...Jump to post
