What specifically do pilot's want their airline to do? A good start would be to build schedules with the staff that is actually available. It seems that many of the airlines are hoping for the best when they build the schedules, but don't have a plan B when the slightest of things go wrong. But mor...Jump to post
There is no rule of thumb on scheduling. This past weekend, I swapped a 4 day trip that had 11 segments to a different 4 day trip that operated 3 segments and deadheaded on 2. Quite a difference. To answer your original question, it would surprise me if your flight crew landed in ATL, then continue...Jump to post

As sad as it is to say, B6 actually can learn a little bit from NK. NK somehow managed to get their OTP numbers into very respectable levels while also maintaining their cost control. Someone in JetBlue leadership should eat a humble pie and learn from what NK did. You are absolutely right. What NK...Jump to post
Ok, I'll give it a try: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51120512227_a2a61c6479_c_d.jpg Air Malta 737-400 - Minicraft Kit. Still very early in my model making.

It's not too difficult, but a 1/144 airliner might be a bit ambitious......, it might be necessary to print 2 sheets and layer the decals. Interesting, I never thought of layering the decals. I dont believe a 1/144 airliner is ambitious. I have done several. Wish I could post pictures, don't know h...Jump to post

I am not really familiar with other programs other than photoshop, my previous career, that is what I used, so that is what I know. But I am sure if you can control how large everything is, and you can scale as needed, I am sure it will work fine. As for the while sheet again, I have only used white...Jump to post
I do this all the time. I use photoshop to create the decals on Waterslide decal papers. I have made my own decals for an Air Malta 720, Spirit A319 Pan Am 747 and quite a few more. I will caution 1 thing, you need to have super bright colors, or use white decal paper, as opposed to transparent, if ...Jump to post
Lot of talk about taxes in Florida here, but no talk about income. The same job in FL will pay less than In NY. There is no free lunch. You will net the same or less. Companies relocate here often for that reason. They say low taxes, but what they mean is less labor costs. And the labor pool is a l...Jump to post
Domestic freight pilots (US, presumably elsewhere) fly hub turns, say KBUF to KSDF and back. 5 days on, 9 days off, IIRC from old UPS guy. That’s maybe 22 hours a week, 50 hours a month.

I remember back in January (when 2020 hadn't fallen to pieces) bahamasair was banned from flying their 737-500s in FAA airspace.

I do not think the standard edition is overpriced for what you get. BUT, I will say this, and this is only my opinion and I am sure I will get flogged for this. The scenery is what makes this game, the flying is years behind where it should be. As noted above, the autopilot in the heavy aircraft mak...Jump to post
Would be interested as well. I just ordered a few from Ebay.. I will let you know the quality. Did you get your decals??? Yes, I did. I ordered them from a seller in Russia, and they took about a month to get to the US which I thought was actually pretty good. The detail and art work of the decals ...Jump to post
I know that around 1997 or so I flew LHR-JFK. According to departedflights, that flight was still there in 2001.
As for the next downturn, I can see AA acquiring B6. That would solve AA's NY problem. With the amount of debt and high cost AA has, will they survive the next downturn... let alone acquire anyone. They might not considering they lost money in this quarter last year flying passengers when their com...Jump to post
Obviously at some point soon, American will either have to divest the 20 or 30 slots they are not using or start using them. -Will stick it to B6 and DL on Florida and Island flying obviously this all occurs after Max issues are sorted out and AA decides not to use the slots...

The YOY Q1 comparison is off because the Easter/Passover week moved to Q2 this year. AA is a mess at JFK.

It is almost impossible to tell which runway planes are lined up with at SJU. The thresholds of both 8 and 10 are so close, it creates an illusion.

JetBlue on the other hand doesn’t even charge more for the mint suites when pretty everyone know they are more desirable than the side by side ones. .

Just my 2 cents. As an airline pilot for the last 14 years, before I accepted a takeoff clearance, I looked at 2 things, 1.out the window, and 2. the flight path. If I didn’t like it, I would make an alternative plan BEFORE I accepted the takeoff clearance, not AFTER, and surely not out of any NYC a...Jump to post
