The addition of a 3rd flight is good news for AA at BUR! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the MD-80 but for the life of me, I cannot figure out why they won't bring in either a 757 or 737-800 for at least the higher temp. summer departures. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, I've seen them lighten the load so many times in summer, especially during a NE wind with the slightly uphill Rwy.33 departure. Where did you get this info. from?
Air Laughlin still is flying to Laughlin 4 or 5 days a week. I know they don't fly on Saturday. Fares are cheap but they're not catching on yet.
FedEx normally has 3 departures a day, Monday-Friday. Not sure of the Flt.#'s but the first 727-200 departs just after 7am for LAX. The A300F departs for MEM at 7:30pm and another 727-200, sometimes a -100, departs around 8pm for AFW. This flight has gone to SJC though on rare instances?
Thanks again, I'm going to the parking lot tonight at long term parking where the new tower is located. There is a place located at the extreme SW part of the parking lot that is great for viewing. If you're going, see you there. I should be there around 9:00.
FedExHeavy: To answer your question about Air Laughlin, this is operated by Casino Express, using a 737-200.
