Sounds like she argued with the F/As when told to stow the child and she got kicked off for it.
Good. You don't get to break the rules because you're a breastfeeder.

Apparently the origin was actually DVT (Phoenix) with a stop in ABQ. It could've been fuel exhaustion if witnesses didn't hear engine noise. The distance from ABQ to SUS would've been possible if he had max fuel. https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/n679ea#fc06482 He told the tower he didn't...Jump to post
Plane crash at the Spirit of STL airport today. Sounds like the pilot died.

Beech Bonanza crashed close to I40, pilot died ansd flightaware shows that the aircraft was flying from ABQ to Spirit of St. Louis airport. Does the aircraft even have the range to do that nonstop? Funny you mention that. Flightaware seems to show he flew ABQ-SUS straight through. ABQ-SUS is 798 nm...Jump to post
The 2-3 seating is nice, but if you're near the back, they're loud. Yes, love the 2-seat side, but as I found flying HA HNL/KOA/HNL...OMG...you're quite right, the engine noise in the last couple of rows IS HORRENDOUS! Especially at low power, like during taxi. Up front it's nice and quiet however ...Jump to post
The title is a bit of hyperbole. There's one airline that wanted the 717 - Delta. Mostly because they knew Airtran had some well maintained examples and WN wanted to get rid of a large number of them for cheap.Jump to post
I'm literally stunned at the immaturity of some crew, lack of people skills and obsession with looks, appearance and doing as little work as possible and I used to be crew. . I had a flight in F not too long ago, ORD-PHX. The twentysomething F/A threw the food at us as fast she could and spent the ...Jump to post
Want a "last" 747 flight? Just pick any of the 25 North America cities LH or BA fly the 747 too.
700k miles is idiotic considering the 747 will continue flying for at least another couple decades. It ain't that impressive.
Some of the stuff they were doing was absolutely idiotic and the crews realized it. Flying the same routes every night at the same altitudes in bunched formations of three. It became a matter of just setting the angle of the missile and waiting for contacts to appear on the radar in the ECM haze, an...Jump to post
Already mentioned in the OAG thread. It's one of several new seasonal weekend routes AA loaded Sunday, which also included DFW-AVL, DFW-ILM, DFW-MYR, ORD-MYR, LGA-TVC and LAX-BZN. From an operational standpoint, the schedule is interesting - with takeoff from FLG at the hottest time of the day. You...Jump to post

AA because they had such a huge fleet at one point, weren't they at like 300+ frames at one point? It was surreal to fly into DFW a few months back and there being so few MD-80's versus 5+ years back. They were at ~360ish after the TWA acquisition and before they started retiring MD80s. They got ri...Jump to post

LAA was an airline of tired 772s crossing the Atlantic with four looped movies on the IFE in economy, the angle-flat "Next Generation Business Class" which was way behind its competitors, and an inability to run on schedule. I remember the first time I, coming from the LUS network, set fo...Jump to post
On the inflight side, my anecdotal observations are: Cactus crews are generally excellent, customer focused, and always working in the cabin during the flight. US-East crews are a mixed bag. The older (true USAir) ones generally do the minimum and not much more, the younger ones that were with Cact...Jump to post
I’m surprised they arrested him. I have a family member that inadvertently tried to carry a gun through security at an airport once. They detained him for a bit, but he was released and ultimately made his flight and they even allowed him to call someone to come retrieve the firearm. I was under the...Jump to post
Rather anti-climactic, if you ask me. Just out of curiosity, what level of status do you have with DL that got you this email? I have status with DL, but I was interested to know which tier they’d notify. Given the rather colloquial tone of the email, it sounds like an internal email addressed to em...Jump to post
Aren't the early SQ birds overweight and one reason why the leases were not extended? How different would the performance be when compared with BA's current frames? That's my understanding. IIRC, there were some changes that needed to be made to some of the first built airframes that were done sort...Jump to post
This is going to be the final nail in the coffin for new build A380s. Why should an airline buy new airframes when they can purchase gently used examples with another 15+ years of life for a relative song? Both SQ and EK are going to be a steady supply of them for the forseeable future. By that arg...Jump to post
As for movements, that's kinda irrelevant comparing general aviation airports to airports whose focus lies strongly within commercial aviation. That's rather uninteresting when Phoenix so far outclasses anything Halifax can offer. But ok, let's use Gateway, which is a commercial airport to Westjet ...Jump to post

Interesting question. Assuming you’re from PHX, YHZ only has more transatlantic capacity than PHX and as mentioned above, a heck of a lot more routes to Europe than PHX does...albeit all but LHR are summer-seasonal.

It's not the age of the individual airframes, moreso the age of the design. The 744 was developed in the mid 80s using engine technology from the early 80s. The 777 is a decade younger than that.Jump to post
I don't know what it is, but I would be shocked if they'd be willing to take your bag 12 hours before the scheduled departure. Well, actually, Google is amazing as usual. Six hours is the max, although it looks like 8 PM might be the actual time since that's what time the ticket counter opens in PHX...Jump to post
Nasty body language for asking them to do their job.

Military is there almost every day. Plenty of Navy and Marines and some USAF occasionally too. They had an entire squadron of Goshawks there the other day.

You're going to be on the outside looking in with a lot of those schools because of your citizenship. BA, LH and several of the Asian/Middle Eastern carriers have cadet programs out here at PHX.

This is ridiculous. We finally have a set of pilot requirements that make sense and make it so that airliners have two well qualified, experienced pilots flying them.

Four shortest I've flown:
HNL-LIH - 75 miles, 20ish minute flight.
ORD-MKE - <70 miles, 20ish minute flight.
STL-ORD - 250ish miles, 45 minute flight.
DUB-LHR - 280ish miles, 50ish minute flight.
There was a recent lawsuit of ex-TWA pilots against AA that they lost. A lot of the ex-TWA pilots held superseniority due to the SLT base in STL, and because of their superseniority could hold captain over AA pilots who were senior(and could not hold captain) to the TWA pilots. With the Airways/AA ...Jump to post
This was only a matter of time once STL was dehubbed Given the seniority they had to have to hold a job at TWA's end-of-life, plus the ~17 years since AA bought the TWA assets, on average these remaining pilots must have pretty good seniority. They should be able to hold a line in any pilot base fr...Jump to post
