Not exactly. If MSY can support premium traffic on a legacy carrier (BA in this case), than BNA, STL and IND can as well. All three of those cities have far better cases than MSY for direct European service. No they don't, and I Don't exactly want to rehash this when it comes to MSY, but they did h...Jump to post
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. Inbev may technically be a Belgian company, but it's run by a bunch of Brazilian bankers. If you were go...Jump to post
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. Nashville is consistently in the top among corporate relocations, startups, and quality. If your two little cities were so special, you'd see more traffic at your airp...Jump to post

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. People don't start at DL/UA/AA. the previous poster said 4-6 yrs so obviously no one "starts out" at the big boys and since you didn't mention regionals and I didn't think about regionals I guess ther...Jump to post

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.
With so many conflicting and overlapping weapons laws across the world, I don't approve of anyone being detained or charged for an an honest oversight, if they immediately declare the mistake. Seriously? You think there are 'many conflicting and overlapping' laws regarding weapons in this world? We...Jump to post
This leads me to believe that Haneda must have some pretty good high definition closed circuit TV cameras in operation. If she didn't notice the weight, it must have been 22 rimfire.

FlyerTalk has a mix of posters, not ALL are low yielding, status-by-credit card types. That is like saying everyone on a.net is a 16 year old arm chair CEO.

I should imagine EL AL will initially use the 787 to LHR and JFK.
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. Obviously that traffic isn't valuable enough to justify fragmenting the market. I doubt the BIg 4 gives two squats ...Jump to post
What Chicago airport is Norwegian going to use? You think 787 can land at MDW? There are other Chicago airports. Norwegian loves using the 3rd and 4th airports of a city.

I don't see why Norweigian would fly to PIE. Norweigian flies to smaller airports with their 737s because those are smaller cities.

Does Lufthansa really have a diverse, mixed fleet? The only Boeing product they currently have is the 744/748. Their narrow body fleet is exclusively A320 family and much of their longhaul fleet is A330/A340 or A380.Jump to post
Why do we automatically assume these llegations are true?
I grew up in St. Louis and worked for a large company that plays in the same sandbox as Southwest. It wasn't uncommon for people to start screaming racism the moment they felt the least bit slighted.

ANC-ATL is further.
As is EWR-HNL and several other East Coast-Hawaii routes.
And who in the hell wants to do that which means Delta will lose market share because the GRR passenger can fly GRR-ORD and get a better experience on a BA flight. Delta would be shooting itself in the foot. Or to the untrained eye you can get "lucky" and "win" a flight on AA wi...Jump to post
I wouldn't rule MCO out on this, they posted not too long ago via social media that they wanted input on whether GOAA should pursue it, and towards the end of the survey when I took it, there was a lot of support over not.

I've flown every member of the A320 family on a number of different airlines and I would never describe a noise you hear for 30 seconds on push back as an annoyance or that it's deafeningly loud.

It's basically a cheap A380neo they're doing in an attempt to keep the plane attractive enought to be able to wait out the market picking up until a full-blown A380neo makes sense.
