It'll be in Franklin most likely. I wouldn't rule out Brentwood or even Thompsons Station. I'd bet on the Cool Springs area.

The site, not the plane.
Each manufacture sets its own maintenance storage schedule in conjunction with the engine manufacture. You would need to research the question in the AMM and EMM. This will also tell you what you need to do to RTS based on how long the plane has been on the ground. I ran a storage program for the co...Jump to post
^Correct. They are also flying the Cancun flight. It is listed on their flight schedule. https://www.vacationexpress.com/flight-schedule/ They have been for several years. American and Delta both dropped the non-stop. Not sure why.? We flew the American flight several times, always full.. One year ...Jump to post
Also, fares change all the time. Just keep checking.Jump to post
A friends father was FDNY. He once very briefly mentioned a plane crash he was at. I'm guessing this was it. He never talked about it, and I never pressed. He retired before September 2001.Jump to post

So... the price more then doubled overnight. I've been checking this week and it has been....., $1165, $1295, $1165, $2699. (Why I actually started this thread..what is the science to this.?

11C- I expected a very limited amount of answers. I did a recent trip to Cancun and watched the price of the upgrade offer fluctuate up and down several times. Just asking if there is any rhyme or reason to it.? Any best day, any number of days out is the best to people that are frequent flyers and ...Jump to post
The aircraft were owned by the airline. No leasing overhead. In many cases you will find they were flown by Senior Crews. Why..? They pick the lines they want, and in many cases flew fixed routes and slept in their own beds.I once asked one of our senior Captains at the regional airline I worked for...Jump to post
Can anyone offer some insight as when is the best time to buy a trip upgrade on AA...? We’re already booked next June to fly to Europe on an American 777-200 Premium Economy. I noticed a week ago they offered an upgrade to Business for $1100 each. When I looked today it was $1295 each. I’ve seen the...Jump to post
In the late 90's I was in AMA Managing the repaint of one of our aircraft when Qantas sent in a 747-400 non-stop from SYD.

My heart says it's a crime, but I know better than that. Still it's a sad sight to see these A380's being dismantled. Pushing ten years is about when it happens, but keep in mind its only profitable to scrap for a short period of time. Once the parts recovered are in the Pool Market things will equ...Jump to post
Having been a part of many "Bridging Inspections", they are not easy and take lots of record research. Throw in another language....oh my. If Southwest contracted someone to do these inspections, that would make them liableJump to post

I remember an incident a bunch of years ago when a Saab 340 up north hit a Snow Goose.
