One of the issues of the codeshare that I have never seen discussed is interline baggage handling. SWA has never done it before. Is that now happening at both airlines?Jump to post
I was took a trip down to <acronym title="Goodyear - Phoenix / Goodyear (Litchfield Municipal) (GYR), USA - Arizona">GYR</acronym> this last weekend and saw one Allegiant <acronym title="Air Madagascar">MD</acronym>-?? at the side of the main Timco hangar.

In a stroke of what is pure corporate genius, United retired a 737 that carried the new livery. I'm assuming that plane flew around for no more than a few months (if that), and was retired to <acronym title="Goodyear - Phoenix / Goodyear (Litchfield Municipal) (GYR), USA - Arizona">GYR</acronym>, wh...Jump to post
The plane departed <acronym title="Phoenix - Sky Harbor International (PHX / KPHX), USA - Arizona">PHX</acronym> a couple of days ago. The flight plan had it going to Los Cabos, Mexico. But, then John Travolta popped up at the Super Bowl. So, there's a possibility that the 707 is parked at the Jacks...Jump to post

Most of the people who have been denied boarding....deserve it! If anything, it should teach people that maybe they shouldn't drink before flying. I'm sure all airline employees hear "I'm calling my lawyer" at least 5 times a day. The reason why the show is beginning to bore me is because there isn'...Jump to post

It's all a moot point. These employees will have plenty of time to hang out at home when they don't have their jobs anymore and the airline is grounded. And because loading luggage into an airplane is a "highly skilled" job, they can probably get a job at McDonald's. Way to shoot yourselves in the h...Jump to post
<i>I've done the Davis-Monthan boneyard tour, its really worth it! It lasts a good while and its very thorough.

I believe that 744 could be put back into service within days. Even though it looks dirty, I'm sure all the essential aircraft systems have been sealed and maintained. It just probably needs a good cleaning......unless it goes to Air France. <img src="/discussions/graphics/spin.gif" ALT="Smile...Jump to post
Instead, turn this into a NWA DC-9 thread, and talk about the same damn thing we've been talking about for years! Can we ban NWA DC-9 threads completely? There's nothing left to discuss. I have to admit, it does take guts to blatantly post about an NWA DC-9. But, you do so at your own peril. Flames ...Jump to post

Is it a "city" or "destination?"
I'm going to say DFW will be announced as a new "destination."
Never mind. I found some information: Delivered January 1960 to Mexicana. Withdrawn from Service - 1970. Registered N999WA Westernair in June 1974. Redmond Air of Redmond bought the Comet in 1976.

I've mentioned this a few times in this forum, but it is appropriate here. There is a documentary on the bankruptcy of Sabena. It shows the final days. Very emotional.

I believe the BA aircraft was G-CIVS.
Thanks for hijacking the topic and wasting all the bandwidth on "emergency" vs. "incident." Who the hell cares! Start you own thread.
If anyone has any more details on this "situation," then please post them.
Wow! I saw her takeoff last night from <acronym title="Phoenix - Sky Harbor International (PHX / KPHX), USA - Arizona">PHX</acronym>. It was too dark, so I couldn't see the tail number.

It's the beginning of the end for America West! Many employees will now be represented by the Teamsters. This is a powerful, crooked union, run by a bunch of thugs.
