TPAC is one market which probably doesn't need low cost long haul because of how ludicrously cheap some flights are these days. I have seen $140 SFO-SIN on UA within the last week which is wicked and insane, to give one ex. Strangely, any flight to Australia is still ridiculously expensive when com...Jump to post
Anyone read this article: http://www.anna.aero/2017/09/13/kansas-city-becomes-the-largest-unserved-market-in-the-us-from-europe/ It's looking at total TATL. MCI, CMH, and JAX top the list. While not LHR, ULCC to any of these? That article is taking some things out of context. It seems to be assumin...Jump to post
Alright, let's assume the A350 goes through, no conversions. 22x is a good start to replace some 77Es, with additional 789s as well. Now, eventually, if they want the extra capacity, and to replace the 77Ws, perhaps the A35K and 779 with Flagship First would work. A332 788 789 A359 A35K 779 Good co...Jump to post
If anyone cares about IWA, I've seen both the MRJ test aircraft and one of the 737MAX test aircraft parked there in the last week. The 738MAX has already returned to KBFI back on Saturday. I believe the MRJ has also left at this point, but not certain on that one. The Max presumably did. The MRJ di...Jump to post

LGW-PHX. BA has shown they can make money on this route by upgrading it to 10x weekly during the summer. I think there's enough market for DY to enter. BA is flying into a oneworld hub there.

One of the most beautiful things about DFW is that you can essentially check in at any terminal (AA can check-in at 4 of 5 terminals) and then move around airside post security all you want. No Buses or leaving security. It's a wonderful thing. If I want to Check-in in A and go to D or E for dinner...Jump to post
Business is done during the day. Air packages are shipped before 5PM. Those packages fly from their origin to the connecting hub during the night to make their connecting flights to their final destination before morning so they can be sorted and put on vehicle for delivery.Jump to post
Male or female, I don't care. What I do care about is experience. In an emergency situation, what often sets apart tragedy from near-tragedy is the experience of the flight crew.

Recently I have hear ( Rumors of course ) that there is a possibility of Spirit and United merging.

I think a DL focus city at AUS is quite possible, especially if the rumored SkyClub comes to fruition.

Not exactly. If MSY can support premium traffic on a legacy carrier (BA in this case), than BNA, STL and IND can as well.

Wondering if STL-BRU makes sense on SN because of the Inbev Bud acquisition? No. The North American Inbev execs all operate out of NYC for exactly this reason - it's too damn hard to get to STL.

The fact you think the business climate is better in IND and STL than BNA is laughable. Research and most media says you are wrong.

Yes, there's an anti-BNA bias on here along with a TON of misinformed poster who only think they know BNA. Come spend a week on the ramp at BNA and you'll change your anti-BNA tune really fast.

Any 121 carrier in the US that you start out at, certainly you could. Meaning regionals.

Hero must be the most abused word in the English language, at least in the US, anyway. This guy was an aircraft mechanic out of Luke AFB that died in an unrelated car accident. That doesn't make him a hero nor does it require people to fall over themselves to "honor him".Jump to post
If the escorting military members/family members had already deplaned, I don't see why the other passengers should have to remain seated because of something taking place on the ramp.
This country is way too wrapped up in its "hero worship" sometimes.

The problem is, there's really no reason not to use Sky Harbor. KIWA doesn't offer much unless you live close to it. Which 2.5 million people do. WestJet seems to think it's worth it.
