- Rossiya, some Russian airline, recently acquired 7 or 8 ex-BA 744s. Minor quibble. Rossiya does fly 747s however they did not get them from BA. The 744s have been in their fleet since 2016 (?) The story of Rossiya picking up 747s from British Airways back in September was stated as untrue from Br...Jump to post
SWF being dropped wouldn't surprise me in the least. It's on the wrong side of the river for New York City; those in Rockland County can just as easily get to HPN or EWR (and LGA isn't a huge hassle). Putnam County is still easier to get to HPN or really any of the NYC airports. SWF will be lucky t...Jump to post
SWF prior to covid was up to 4 daily to PHL. With AA pulling more and more from JFK, I would think SWF offers a bit of a catchment at a cheaper cost and hope AA doesn't pull it.Jump to post
B6 completely halted HPN (White Plains, NY) at the outset of the covid situation when they were consolidating their NYC operations to just JFK and EWR. Any idea when (and hopefully not "if") the HPN service starts again ? Last I saw was a July 1st startup for PVD; LGA, HPN, SWF; BWI; SJC;...Jump to post
I believe AA is planning on the 76 oldest 737's by a certain date because they don't want to do a retrofit on them.Jump to post
I remember flying Midway quite a few times growing up SWF-RDU-TPA. Pretty sure all flights were on the F100s. I was probably 13, mom would drop us off in Newburgh and grandparents would get us in Tampa. I don't remember much other than it being easy and efficient and no real concern for us kids goin...Jump to post
I assume the fact that the MAX is sitting in the parking lot is helping AA, United, Southwest and Alaska in a way because those leases/purchases are not realized yet and are unknown?
Those Airlines get to thank Boeing for that assist.
There was a good thread going on this earlier before it was moved to die in the Polls Forum for some reason.
A couple of photos of VCV from the air of stored aircraft, lots of Southwest aircraft there Saw some close up photos on Instagram.

I saw on this board that ATL was closing a runway for the sake of DL storage. I'd love to see a photo! It's eerie. The 5th runway crosses over I-285. Entering the tunnel underneath the runway you can see all the tails of parked aircraft on both sides of the highway. I think Virgin has a 789 parked ...Jump to post
This is an old special from CNBC - A Week in the Life AA
24 minutes in hits on the tail cone modification for fuel savings.
I would assume that there is better connections to be had than coming to either EWR or JFK. I would think using IAH and IAD to move connecting traffic through would make more sense in a joint venture. All in JV would capitalize on on O+D coming from NY.Jump to post
AA didn’t order enough 787s to completely replace the 777-200 fleet. Keeping the A330-200s may be AA keeping its foot in the door to possibly buy the A330neo as a 777 replacement. They can decide later if they want to have a 787 and A332/330neo fleet coexist or if they want to go straight 787s. I d...Jump to post
Can’t CLT simply grow by adding more banks— not necessarily new destinations? This is one way ATL school CLT they run more flights to many of the cities mentioned. I have never really understood using banks instead of a rolling hub. I am sure that there is benefits for customers with improving conn...Jump to post
So now that the MD80's are out, is there any word to the last E190 flight for AA? I assume that with AA owning the planes there is not an extreme rush with the 737Max stuck on the ground. Also assuming the life of the E190 is dependent on the ability to get the used A319's in the air?Jump to post
I still believe that AA pulling back from the North East is strategic. If jetBlue is in play I do not see Doug Parker sitting back and watching. AA buys B6 selling off 30 slots to United if they want in to JFK along with terminal space in T5. Maybe United gives some at ORD (gates). 10% to 20% of fly...Jump to post
With AA needing to use their slots at JFK and their joint venture, I am wondering it we could see some utilization from JFK to more UK locations?Jump to post
There’s something wrong with WN, EWR has been growing faster the last few years than LGA or Kennedy. EWR grew by 7.2% last year, well outpacing LGA’s .02 or Kennedy’s 2% growth. EWR is the region’s busiest airport for domestic travelers, and WN is mostly a domestic carrier. NK has been growing like...Jump to post
I am assuming this will be the end of Compass and their operating certificate could be worth much more in a sale to say Midwest or "Moxy"Jump to post
The Max is being used as a scapegoat to lessen the blow and give hope that they will come back. If that plane was truly needed to keep the station open then EWR was barely hanging on to begin with. Southwest, like any airline, would shuffle to keep profitable routes/stations operating as robustly a...Jump to post

I would assume weather is probably a factor as well. Smallest thunderstorm in the south or in the north can have a huge effect. Their bases are so close together and ripple effect happens. My last flight though was SWF-MCO and it was delayed 1.5 hours because the air conditioning was creating snow i...Jump to post

Weird route. Does B6 do a lot of other p2p like this? Or is LA some kind of mini hub? What caused this route in the first place? I believe it was a way of serving Toronto with out flying into Canada. Here in NY for a bit there was a lot of launches of U.S. border cities getting some flights to area...Jump to post

I have asked the question previously before in a different forum. In the U.S. can you have a virtual airline and not actually fly your own aircraft? I feel like if allowed we would have seen it.Jump to post
Is there any significance to certain nosecones having the black ring and others not? Noticed in the pictures above.Jump to post
Do the LAX drops have anything to do with their partnership with AA?Jump to post
