Before Avelo, I think your cheapest option was/is through CEC on Contour to OAK. Ironically you would think so. However, most people around here aren't even aware of the Contour flights from CEC.

For all the carriers in the US, it is currently optional with some carriers running incentive plans for employees to get vaccinated. The bigger issue will be whether or not certain governments will end up requiring it for flight crew. Seniority becomes king sure, but if your workgroup/base has trips...Jump to post
Reservation glitches like this happen more often than you'd think, but they're usually resolved before departure. As an example the IT system of another UK airline cannot deal with passengers who use the salutations of Doctor, Professor, etc. That is to be expected in different areas but using titl...Jump to post

IMHO as far as cargo goes GYR could play a big role at Amazon. There is room and Amazon has quite a few distribution facilities on the west side. They could eliminate some of the central Phoenix traffic hassle by coming from the west to buckeye road centers. It could also work for the LA line haul ...Jump to post

That being said, this is a hilarious way for a W&B error to occur.
As opposed to weeks, months, or years? This is not a big deal. Move on. To airlines that is a big deal. Money spent on fixing a jet is money lost when the jet has to be sitting around. Right now, it isn't. There is fleet slack out the wazoo. I can assure you for AA, there is not fleet slack for the...Jump to post
I even think that DL could add BUR-PDX/GEG with A220 possibly as they become more present on the West Coast They have zero motivation to do so, you are basically talking about two spoke to spoke routes and DL's approach has been clear, moving away from point to point and back to their core hubs. No...Jump to post
I think IWA has a bright future in cargo ops since capacity is limited by ramp space at PHX. PHX has future plans to build more on the north side, but there's an opening for IWA in cargo, specifically with Amazon. Not being as centrally located isn't as big of an issue as it relates to cargo. I thi...Jump to post
Does anyone see the big four carriers entering AZA in the future even its three too five years down the road I would think they would come there eventually?

Whatever happened to them essentially banning uber and lyft and requiring them to be off property for pickups? Been over a year since flying to Phoenix for work.

Is this still true, or does it reflect a past era?

Well heard that DL officially released And returned the 3 supplemental slots to LGB. With no new entrants on the wait list and Hawaiian passed on additional slots.

Does anyone know if there are any plans for AS to move into T4N now that they are a part of OneWorld?

To add to that, EN is Piedmont who is being discussed. I'm so confused.

Maybe at some point Piedmont could operate the 170s because as you said the 145s are getting tired and EN rarely gets anything but secondhand birds.

Yes because 10 gates are still not open on NSat yet. Once they do, you'll likely only see AS operating SSat for INTL Arrivals and the occasional overflow domestic flight during their peak banks.

Why can't AA do that? Maybe it's not so much their inability, but more so their unwillingness.

...but AS/AA has a bigger domestic network than WN. Hopefully they keep year round service to ORD. It’s not like you can get from OME to DFW very easily to exploit this relationship.
