There are two different door sizes for 2L on the A321... a shorter door intended only as an exit and a taller door that may be unused for boarding and deplaning. It's more narrow than a regular door, but tall enough to comfortably walk thru, and therefore a missing overhead bin at this door. While 2...Jump to post

So Baldanza knows jetBlue. Wasn't he a former Spirit Airline CEO? So just how does he know B6 won't do it?
My first thought of the tail was the1990s Continental marketing globe, like the "Work Hard. Fly Right." magazine print ads.Jump to post
I think it's a ridiculous and useless design, it just seems to only help the window seats board faster. Then at some point, the gate agents will have to tell the Flight Attendants to slide 50+ seats into position to board the middle and aisle seats. And with the middle seats jutting back into the se...Jump to post
My prediction for the April 10th event is not just Europe flying, but revealing a new updated Mint product version 2.0. The CEO has said in the past he wishes we had put more mint seats on the aircraft because it'so successful, but we were confined by the A321door configuration, and with the new a32...Jump to post
I did wonder if anyone would fall over it in a dark cabin on a red-eye. I guess I'm surprised that a latching rope would not be deemed a safety issue in an emergency. I agree, though, that it gets the point across. I think the "rope" would only be used above 10,000 feet. Like the divider ...Jump to post
BOS-PSP inaugural blocked 7h01m last night, with 1 missed approach (winds). A friend had two tech stops this week BOS-LGB, one in DEN, another in PHX, the later being unplanned. BOS-PHX blocked 6h 53m alone. Said it had to do with headwinds and wx at destination airport and necessary alternates, thu...Jump to post
I'm not sure about the humiliation part, but I know airlines like to use group exercises to judge if a candidate is a team player vs somebody that is aggressive and condescending or is timid and doesn't participate. (Meaning, can you show leadership skills without overreaching or being dismissive? O...Jump to post
Im betting SFO-SGN... that would be historic! And SFO-GRU/EZE? Some nonstops to South America to connect to the Pacific network?Jump to post

If CAE is a MX base, maybe they are ferrying planes in and out often enough to need crews to reposition aircraft, unless all mx is done only on planes that fly thru CAE and remain overnight. This would explain the need for pilots, but not sure if FAs are required for ferry flights. (I think some air...Jump to post

Umm, isn't 180 minutes THREE hours rather than six?
Such pictures appear in an annual airline quiz. Where was that show held? Why didn't you ask the people who organized it? It looks like Royal Air Force of some kind to me or perhaps Monarch? It was at the annual Airliners International, held in DCA this year. Next year will be in Atlanta. The selle...Jump to post
Which crews will get to work these NRT 777 flights? United or Continental Micronesia FAs? I was surprised to hear HNL crews worked the GUM-HNL route and a rumor they would be getting a HNL-MAJ turn too, so GUM based FAs would lose their only HNL layover (via the island hopper).Jump to post
Saw some photos on Instagram... link to the story with some photos of the new United Airlines uniform.
Rumors of LGB reduction and elimination of most west coast-West coast markets. I’m seeing 34 daily some big increases in some markets.

Because both groups were AFA, the bylaws of the union spell out the process. Even if one group doesn't agree, the bylaws are the guide.

Just hope they are not as toxic as present unis. You’re thinking of AA....AS ditched their toxic Twin Hill uniforms a good five years ago.

I find it interesting how airlines in Japan love their 3 letter abbreviations. Japan Air Lines = JAL, All Nippon Airways = ANA, Japan Air System = JAS (formerly Toa Domestic Airlines = TDA) and they even paint (or had at one point) their liveries as such.

I wonder what Jetblue's involvement will be in this... the route map ("Where We Jet") on jetblue.com now shows the Hawaiian Islands, although no destination dot.

Do they still have their JFK crew base? If so is it likely being closed? Good question. Its a tiny base.

It's like they couldn't choose between red or blue, so they went with both. Is there a reason for purple??

MAS could choose to have something similar to American's first class cabin that is currently on the A321 transcon fleet, the reverse herringbone seat, thought it will probably have to be modified slightly to fit inside a 737. http://www.airlinereporter.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/A321_transcon_f...Jump to post
