Speaking of widebody flights don't know if this has already been mentioned but I just did a dummy booking just to see for the hell of it but the A330 now shows on Hawaiian Airlines flights between PHX-HNL starting January 2nd.

Yes WN is a LCC. DL, UA, AA are legacies. WN is a LCC G4, F9, NK are ULCCs. I would consider AS and B6 to be full service airlines that aren't legacies. 2017 CASM AA/UA/DL over 12 cents WN 11.48 cents B6 10.76 cents AS 9.92 cents G4 9.38 cents NK 7.63 cents Of course, there are no cut-offs which de...Jump to post
Just a thought from looking at the Swift Air logo.. Are they part of the Swift that is a major trucking company here in the US? I hope they're not. The Swift (Trucking Company) are for good reason, the laughing stock of the trucking industry due to their poor safety & accident record. When Swif...Jump to post
N588HA was ferried to MCI to get checked out and fitted for UA,with the next 2 over the next couple months. By years' end, HA will have 11 A321neos on property to which will take over majority of the 767 routes currently. Currently planned 7 deliveries between 2019-2020, unless HA decides to take t...Jump to post

So it sends a very confusing message to the consumer about who they're flying with, and they'll need to correct this going forward. My vote is for the classic hockeystick livery, of course. It looks like your vote is canceled. But as of now the only "customers" are tour operators, charter...Jump to post

It'll be a 777 if it does happen.

Any more detail on this operational issues? Something having to do with gate usage, ...Jump to post
Did some searching and found this which must be the reason for the delay of the start of revenue ATR service: https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=FAA-2018-0324-0003 It can fly the first 5 airplanes without exemption.

Why are they going to get rid of T2 when PHX doesn’t have many available gates for new airlines? What new airlines?

I think that the "west terminal" or "super terminal" plan was shelved around the early 2000s. We ended up with the current Terminal 3 design. This .pdf has the latest info on the 20-year plan. Even the most aggressive projection requires few additional gates. https://www.skyharbo...Jump to post
Now that Airbus has rebranded the CSeries as the A220, I wonder what the builders plate will reflect? Especially on aircraft built prior to the rebrand. On the built frames, probably CSXXX. On the new, A220XXX. Same as when the DC-9-80 became the MD-80. The type certificate would have to be changed...Jump to post

Hopefully it mean large RJ’s operated by mainline pilots. Right now AA is scoped out, as I believe UA is as well. Pilots are not going to sell out on scope, so management will need to pony up the money for mainline pilots to fly them. You mean customers will need to pony up the money to pay for the...Jump to post
I believe both DCA and LGA have always been domestic only airports but not sure, maybe someone else on here can confirm.

Slots at JFK, LGA, and DCA are not sold or bought, unlike LHR slots, for example. There have been proposals to reallocate slots or hold slot auctions for revenue to the airport and/or the National Airspace System, but these proposals meet significant resistance from airlines and from Congress.

Braniff DID allow passengers to fly just LAX to SFO because I took the flight a couple of different times just to fly Braniff. The flight originated in Ecuador and then nonstop to LAX and on to SFO. When? Nonstop from Guayaquil to LAX? On a DC-8-62, or what? When? LAX-GYE started late 1978 (I think...Jump to post
I think there is confusion here about when a carrier could fly passengers within a state.

We carried passengers SAN-LAX and had a published f...Jump to post

Everything was phased in. Toward the end of 1978, there was a lottery for routes. The first airline in line got first pick. And the first in line was United which requested only one route: BUF-FLL (which it never did operate). Next in line was Braniff, which requested and received a whole bunch of ...Jump to post

So if the Deregulation Act was signed into law on October 24, 1978, didn't it become effective immediately thereafter meaning technically any carrier could fly anywhere in the US? Of course, practically speaking I guess most had a lag between the effective date and the date they could actually impl...Jump to post
Is there any evidence to prove this? I can't find anything online and it's sounds unlikely. 1.

You are correct, VBraniff could not carry local traffic between SFO and LAX. I have a Braniff 1976 timetable and it shows SFO to BOG one-stop service twice a week, and SFO to LIM 1 stop service three times a week. The schedule does not show the flight between SFO and LAX, but the map shows the rout...Jump to post

Oh gosh I had no idea the states had their own regulatory boards for flying within their states, so I guess along those same lines Florida must have decided who could fly MIA-TPA and Texas decided who got to fly IAH-SAT? Not exactly. If an airline flew entirely within one state, it was not regulate...Jump to post
What airlines are spin-offs from other non-aviation-related companies?... Brockway Glass acquired Air North in 1984 or 85 and then merged Crown AIrways into a new identity known as Brockway Air.

Given the OO "ad" for PRC shows UA, I'd assume LAX and/or DEN have already been confirmed but not announced. Just curious but what "ad" are you referring to? I won't complain if it does end up in the UA system though, the fewer 200 routes crewed from PHX the better. https://care...Jump to post

I have to imagine PHX is on the shortlist for LH expansion. With the success of BA and Condor, I would think PHX would be a worthwhile (re)add for LH. It seems LH’s problem is that they don’t have any smaller widebodies to test such a route with. The smallest widebody by pax count they fly is the A...Jump to post
