I think everyone who got into aviation would know about him, his story is legend. That said, I think Ethiopian's Leul Abate is still flying. Happy Retirement!Jump to post
TUI Belgium has also cancelled their planned service from Brussels. No more 787 action unfortunately.Jump to post
Think they'll fly them to the Southern islands, the Windward Antilles are safe from the storm. I can remember some time ago, Winair flew in their planes to SLU for similar reasons. .Jump to post
BGI should focus on getting more US flights rather than from Latin America. It's just B6 and AA at this point. They should try to attract UA and DL at least. Sadly they couldn't keep DL. They've launched flights from JFK and ATL not too long now, however it's being suspended coming 12 Aug. UA doesn...Jump to post
The Caribbean is not a natural market from the West Coast and has always been a struggle to sustain. Lots of airlines have tried various routes to fail. Maybe people don't appreciate the distances involved, but LAX-SJU for example is ~3,400miles while LAX-HNL is ~2,500mi. That is a lot of extra dis...Jump to post
Very informative everyone, I appreciate it. It would appear that islands such as Jamaica are in some sort of "Goldilocks" zone to be be easily served. It would be nice to easily have more variety rather than the some old Hawaiian/Mexican markets, hopefully one could seemlessly make connect...Jump to post
Good day ANetters, it's my first thread. I've been studying the connectivity of the West Coast with the Caribbean region and, unsurprisingly, it's quite minimal compared to the East Coast. While aircraft such as the Boeing 757 can comfortably reach the Eastern Caribbean, would a seasonal service to ...Jump to post
Corsair has also received authorization to fly to SXM and UVF, will likely share with PTP. Wonder when they'll start hinting service.

I'm no expert, but I've always felt that the 757 flightdeck looked a tad more advanced and ergonomic than its 737 counterpart. The recent flat panel retrofits to the 757 I find, looks phenomenal. For instance, the overhead panel uses pushbutton and light indicator technology. It also provides the pi...Jump to post
Would further expansion into the Caribbean from MSP make sense? I would think that Delta and Sun Country may as well give it a try.Jump to post

Oh yes it's true, we still get occasional business jets even today. Plenty history this place has seen, infact a JetBlue a320 almost landed there accidentally recently. The largest regular to my knowledge was Amerijet's 727s. Cockpit video at time 9:40, https://youtu.be/sXXJeqXoYo4 . We also had BOA...Jump to post
We're getting there. DAL sends us regular 739s from ATL and have a 2nd year round Saturday flight. JBU also has a 2nd summer only Saturday service sometimes with the a321. UAL also does a 2nd Sunday flight from EWR during winter, usually with a 739. Our current focus is moving to Europe. We're looki...Jump to post
