This only applies to pilots. Everyone else is expendable. Pilots have a union and collective bargaining agreement. As much as this site hates unions, this is proof why having one in this business means a lot more than family and culture. Have you seen what the non-union JetBlue frontline workgroups...Jump to post
WN flew to LAS
Very popular flight. Axed because it was full of award tickets.
There was a time WN was supposed to grow to 40 plus flights. This was 2004-2005.
In came LGA slots and the rest is history.
AA announces it will apply for Seattle to Shanghai and confirms Seattle to London/Bangalore launch for 2021. AA will "no longer operate the following routes": - CLT-BCN/FCO/CDG - DFW-MUC - LAX-HKG/EZE/GRU/PEK/PVG - MIA-BSB/MXP - ORD-VCE - PHL-TXL/BUD/DBV ORD-KRK/BUD/PRG and PHL-CMN will n...Jump to post
Do you really not know about all the 787s AA has coming or are you just playing dumb? In 2018 AA ordered 22 more 787-8 and 25 more 787-9. The 8s were always planned to replace the 767 fleet and the 9 were to replace the 330-300 and older 777s. The first batch of the 787-8s have started arriving in ...Jump to post
When this looked shorter like a year or two to recover this made total sense. Now it's looking like passenger recovery imho could be quite a ways away it might not make any sense to keep such large payrolls. It's pretty clear the airlines will have large layoffs the day this money ends. Kind of def...Jump to post
Does anyone know why B6’s IAD focus city didn’t work out? I remember the older B6 route maps and IAD was a focus city to several destinations. It’s not that it didn’t work out. How much smaller airline, and they got a bunch of DCA and LGA slots. At the time they needed the planes elsewhere, and the...Jump to post
I honestly think we are looking at a 5-10 year recovery to get anywhere close to 2019 numbers on a global scale. Globally, there will be a significant shift from air to rail, so it probably won't be a 'recovery' in much of Europe and Asia. Rail is down for the same reason as planes. Covid Central s...Jump to post
So you don’t think it’s possible the authorities in Europe also over reacted out of fear? My condolences but it is extremely rare that someone who is neither elderly or sick was lost. Of course they overreacted in a literal sense. But using that term is misleading. For instance, operating a plane i...Jump to post
So Cuomo and tri state have increased quarantine list to 16 states. He is making at least some threats of adding some teeth to enforcement which would be a problem for JetBlue, especially since demand to places like California have been recovering. With these announcements, I'm not too optimistic a...Jump to post
All these State vs. State quarantines are the number one reasons why the Federal Government needs to lead the pandemic response and not left up to local governments. Bingo! Furthermore, the more states they add to it, the more they weaken its enforcement and compliance. You can’t force people to st...Jump to post

The initial August cuts are in. They are bringing back most of the stations. LGA/HPN/SWF/BWI/SJC/RNO/SMF/HYA/BUR/ONT/SRQ/BZN are all coming back. I'm sure there are more in there that I'm missing right now. This is from late July to give a point of reference JFK - 99 BOS - 83 FLL - 41 EWR - 23 Now ...Jump to post

Or are people just going to press on?
It will be interesting to see
[quote="Nicknuzzii"]A little embarrassing for AS to retreat again in August from EWR considering the B6 expansion. I would have thought AS would have at least matched the frequencies.

Here’s the crazy thing that all the sensationalism about the maybe EU travel ban is forgetting: the U.S. has prohibited EU tourists since mid-March and that ban is still in effect. I don’t think many Europeans are clamouring to visit the USA these days as it is. Correct. And Americans aren’t really...Jump to post
With regards to B6:
Once Florida went down, they were screwed
They told us this week bookings way down.
Stick a fork in any recovery
Are you certain? I would be a little surprised the FAA would allow such "flight planning". During dispatcher training, I do recall hearing about this technique, especially in regards to longer North American transcon flights. However, never do I recall hearing about it for ETOPS flights, ...Jump to post
They had not much options as they ran out of money. Airbus and Fokker (they were about to get 30 Fokker 100s) were more eager to bag this prestigious name (faded glory) to their operator list and offered more financing/lease options than Boeing at the time. I am sure if they had more money they'd h...Jump to post
Was the intention to get rid of all the 747s and replace them with 310s? Or was it supplemental? They had not much options as they ran out of money.

New York, New Jersey and Connecticut to place a 14-day quarantine on anyone arriving in the region from a state with a high #coronavirus infection rate.

“ I mean that's fine. We will find out what the numbers look like. It's quite clear by this point that Northeast business market demand is extremely weak. Which is the reason DL has only scheduled in 75 flights a day in August at LGA (there will be another cut later). UA faces the same problem at EW...Jump to post
AA has a sketchy past on NY to Florida LGA PBI MCO FLL and TPA were all flown. JAX on Eagle. DAB on Eagle. This peaked post TWA merger. JFK saw MCO and TPA MCO was flown concurrently from both at one point. None of it was consistent or long lasting. Miami obviously flown from both consistently. Seas...Jump to post
But PBI, RSW and TPA aren't. Those added flights are non-hub to non-hub, although with cases spiking here in Florida and at least one state talking about a mandatory 14-day quarantine for anyone entering the state from Florida B6 may end up not starting some of these. PBI is a pilot and FA base for...Jump to post
Just to clarify, B6 has these bases
EWR is easily covered by limos from JFK/LGA.
Why will B6 add EWR-ATL? DL is not big at EWR and the B6 strategy is to fight DL at JFK, not EWR. ...up till now. Clearly, B6 smells Delta’s blood in the New York area waters. Construing B6's adds of EWR-SFO/LAX/SAN/LAS/PHX/AUS/SRQ/JAX/CHS as more of an attack on DL than on UA is delusional. The bi...Jump to post
What surprises me is a lot of B6 non-hub to non-hub flying that's planned as well as new route adds from JFK. EWR is considered a B6 base now. But PBI, RSW and TPA aren't.

Looking at the OAG this week, I am surprised by how much Delta is keeping Jfk wide open. Routes like CLE and RDU with 0 flights for August. Big drawdowns across the board.

Just taking a look at late July schedule again and it looks like JetBlue has made their final adjustments. Interesting stuff in that I'm seeing a lot of major JFK routes getting additional flights for that time. They must be seeing some solid booking coming in lately. I think NYC's pentup demand is...Jump to post
Does the new terminal 1 have preferential access to most of the gates or are they all truly shared. If it's the former, how do they decide which ones have preferential access and which ones are shared? That would seem like the biggest limiting factor to JetBlue or the ULCCs at the moment. Is it sti...Jump to post
So theoretically how big can B6 grow to in EWR? I can definitely see possibly UA subleasing their T1 gates to B6 to make a quick penny. (UA has confirmed they have gate and lounge space in T1) Not happening. And especially after last weeks announcement, UA won't be doing B6 any favors. The issue fo...Jump to post
They had competed with JAL for the most 747s for a while right?
I still remember breaking out of the morning mist on approach to LHR and seeing them parked all over. One of those aviation moments you dont forget
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/jetblue-just-flouted-airline-industry-223016872.html I agree with this article’s bottom line. Kirby is an aggressive guy. He’ll respond to this and when he does B6 will have to evaluate whether EWR is worth it. B6 may not be so keen on this fight if UA decides to ramp...Jump to post

" So if they want to expand at EWR, they need to add more flights. I'd love to see LAX or SFO, but not sure if they have enough mint aircraft around for even 4x on EWR-LAX.
