Re: Phoenix Aviation Thread - 2018

It could just be a placeholder for when the 767s exit the fleet. I wouldn’t expect equipment for January 2018 to be set or even really tweaked until 180 days out at the earliest. Also, planning for T3N lease space has taken HA’s A330s into consideration, so I would expect them to serve PHX at least...

I live about five minutes away from KIWA(Phoenix-Mesa Gateway).

Re: American Airlines orders 47 additional 787's (22 788's and 25 789's), cancels A350 order

The oldest 77E isn't quite 20 years old yet. I don't see them going anywhere anytime soon. Their newest 9 767's are only 15 but will be gone in less than two years - so the 77E's could soon follow.

Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2018

I'm skeptical AA has any interest in a potential 797. The 797 as outlined is 220-270 seats. AA's 788 has ~225ish seats and 789 covers the upper end of that spectrum. The 797 just seems redundant, especially if their goal is fleet simplification.

It's basic supply and demand for unskilled labor. If there was no supply of people willing to make minimum wage for this work, wages would rise.
