They just said they were grabbing hard to get real estate during the pandemic lol I'm kind of confused where are the hard to grab real estate they are getting? Doesn't look like they are getting additional slots at LGA/DCA as of now. They are not moving back into EWR and have not done much at SFO/L...Jump to post
I'm guessing the following overseas airlines will NOT return to SEA post-pandemic: EK EI SQ Norwegian NH CX Condor Seattle has turned into such a crap-hole that no one in their right mind would want to come back or come visit. Step away from the Fox News portrayal of Seattle. The tourism market wil...Jump to post
Imo, this is usually what people mean when they say IAH is more "convenient" because honestly HOU is the same distance or closer to most of the business and wealth as IAH is. From the westside (say I-10 and the Beltway), taking the Beltway south is normally actually easier than taking it ...Jump to post
We live in the far west Houston area in Katy/Cinco Ranch. We’re 32 miles to either IAH or HOU. 99.9% of the time we’ve flown from/to IAH. It just seems a bit more “safe” to fly from IAH vs. flying from HOU. We’ve only flown WN from HOU one or two times in the last 40 years. Hobby isn’t located in t...Jump to post
[ What JetBlue is doing here is not any different. Throw stuff against the wall and see what works. They have a bunch of aircraft sitting around doing nothing. If the bookings are not there, they will just reduce schedule. That's what everyone is doing these days. and they can go in and grab market...Jump to post
I actually think there will be another wave of JetBlue expansion on the horizon. I think they have a very good chance of taking over unused gates at LGA, BOS, LAX, SEA, JFK, EWR....With the majors cutting back more flights than the LCC's, and having to relinquish gates, I see JetBlue swooping in an...Jump to post
I still can’t believe they weren’t able to make EWR work but they are going to add MIA which is down the road from their “hub” in FLL. Maybe if they sold it as New York/Newark like every other airline it would have worked... But good for WN to expand but not relevant if you live in New Jersey like ...Jump to post
I think BNA would've been a great place for them to build up if WN had like a 60 flight station and with little desire to grow further than that. But it looks like they have pretty big plans there and it's hard to see how JetBlue could possibly compete with them in that market. That's a real shame,...Jump to post
Ok then, if B6 were to have a Midwest focus city, what city would it be? MCI, STL, IND, are the only ones you could look at but they don’t bring anything to the table. I don’t see any city in that region that makes sense. The only city I see that B6 could maybe make a focus city would be Austin, an...Jump to post
A couple weeks ago in STT I saw an AA 738 take off that was still in the polished aluminum paint scheme. I didn’t realize there were still some left not painted in the current paint scheme. Was this a special heritage plane or are there more than one polished aluminum AA 737 still flying? Also - if...Jump to post
I don’t see AS giving up T6. They tried the co-locating with AA back in the late 80’s- early 90’s. Even though there was no partnership, It was a disaster coordinating gates with AA. Some days we had to operate almost half of our 12 flight a day schedule via a bus op out of AA’s Super-bay hanger. O...Jump to post

And it will be even quieter on the ground, in storage.
I saw that WN will only have 2 daily flights at LGA for May. A 1:10p and a 5:10p both to BWI. Everything else has been cut.Jump to post
When is the A220 scheduled to fly ATL-SEA? It's been replaced by the 738. In other news DL will take delivery of 23 A220's this year. Ship 8129 was delivered in January. Ship 8130 will be delivered at the end of February making DL the largest A220 operator in the world. Ships 8131-8145 will be deli...Jump to post
It's hard to see long-term viability for an airline that has a single large hub plus 1-2 focus cities all on the west coast. In addition to trying to keep gate space in SEA, these moves must be a precursor for some future strategic move. I agree the most likely scenario would be a tie-up with B6. H...Jump to post
My family and friends wld have no idea they're on a Max once it's back in the air. The only thing they'll tell me if I ask is that the plane seemed new. We aviation lovers make this a bigger deal than the avg person. Like its been stated previously, a majority of flyers care about price and schedulesJump to post
Flew on the A220 for the first time this weekend. What is with the god awful noises with this plane while taxiing? If anybody wants to experience them go to seat 21a. Once airborne it is fine. I can only assume it is a combination of the brakes and maybe a fuel pump? It sounds like servos grinding ...Jump to post

Of the large U.S. carriers, I find AA to be the least reliable particularly in-flight. Their F/As seem miserable and do the bare minimum. I know it's not a big deal big but it seems nearly everytime I board an AA flight the F/As are texting on their phone or engaged in personal conversations not gre...Jump to post
Possibly so although I just read WN wld eventually get seven on the employee website this morning.

I wonder if the LUS 757 will all be totally taken off HI runs and put on other high volume domestic runs. I think the 757s might be doing PHX/DFW. If you check flightaware.com, the L-US 757 are mostly on PHX-Hawaii flights (and IIRC, PHX-DCA-PHX) and the L-AA 757 are mostly PHL-Europe, DFW/MIA-Sout...Jump to post
I'm a medallion with DL and fly on both the 739ER and A321 frequently. I can understand the issue with the lavs all being in the rear but when it comes to comfort I see or feel no difference.

So B6's LGA-MCO/FLL routes will only be on A321s starting October 27th, considering they dropped a flight for both (5->4 for FLL and 4->3 for MCO). LGA-PBI and LGA-BOS stay the same. Also, I don't think B6 can fit its A321s into LGA's terminal A, since the whole terminal is basically one whole gate...Jump to post
Will LGA actually ever be completed? The western concourse (AA) is already taking shape and the connector from the new terminal to the eastern concourse looks to be 40%-50% complete. They have also started tearing down one end of the old terminal as well. Numerous new roadways are taking shape as w...Jump to post

If I were to fly B6 to Europe my concern wld be getting back home to the U.S. during inclement weather in the summer and winter. Their schedules go down hill quickly if weather conditions aren't perfect on the east coast.Jump to post
