Any word on the airframe?Jump to post
No, there are differences between the NEO and CEO. Training is needed for all. How is this different from the MAX? It seems pilots were just thrown on that type without further training. Of course, this isn’t correct at all. There is training between the NG and the MAX. This is A.net so a lot of in...Jump to post
Why do they need to train pilots on the neo? Shouldn’t their existing A320 pilots be able to fly the neo without additional training? No, there are differences between the NEO and CEO.

Wondering if the 76 drivers can chime in here: What are you guys doing at 7,000 feet and that far out? What systems are being used/initiated, etc... accidents are never just ONE item, they are always a series of events spurred by one. Just wondering if something could have triggered a mechanical di...Jump to post
Looks like a nasty day over in Southwest land.
Article says it all but where does it go now? What will the judge say?

Not gonna happen. They will fly these things until the cycles prevent it. They didn't fly 757 and 767 until the cycles prevent it. Cue N174AA. The first A320 (tail #679) has now been retrofit with power ports and USB at every seat. It also received new overhead bin doors to accommodate larger bags....Jump to post

Last I have seen from AA,, the first five to be retired will be in 2020, with 23 more in 2021. But as we all know, plans change so stay tuned.
Well now it's completely gone *AA JFK-MCO JUN 1.7>0 JUL 2>0 AUG 2>0 SEP 2>0 OCT 2>0 NOV 2>0[1.9] No surprises here. MCO and SFB have had huge grow in NS options to Europe. Without high yield connections over JFK the only thing left is NS traffic. Both B6, WN, and recently DL have had...Jump to post
JFK MCO is not a seasonal route. It is one of the busiest routes in the nation. AA is really toast to the NYC traveller of their own doing. Bizzare What’s LGA-MCO at? I bet 2x or 3x a day in peak. No way JFK can compete. Connect traffic will have their lunch eaten with all of the new non stop servi...Jump to post

So when the 757s are all retired, what will be the successor aircraft? A321. Quite unlikely. The airport is over 6500' above sea level and has a challenging departure procedure.

New configuration for AAs Boeing 737MAX8, with 150pax.
I am surprised with all the AUS NK adds that nothing was removed. Maybe they aren't prepared to announce the pullbacks or do they have enough aircraft to handle this growth now?Jump to post
[photoid][/photoid] Hi B757Capt I thought that N370WL (24011) became G-GDFA of Jet2, and N371PA (23543) became VP-BBG of KD Avia. My records show the latter being scrapped at VNO. My understanding was that N380WL (23218) and N390WL (23219) went to Lion Air. Correct, N371PA suffered a gear collapse o...Jump to post
I was not aware they also had a Boeing 757 … On what routes did they use that on ? 0778056 Myr to las Vegas was one leg. Cant remember if it did las Vegas to Rockford. The 757 flew many charters but was scheduled on MYR-LAS, GYY-LAS and RFD-LAS. All flights were less then daily so a single aircraft...Jump to post
How long since last repaint and how old is the frame ? Just out of interest... According to planespotters.net the frame is 21 years old.

The S80s seem to be completely confined to DFW in the January schedule. The three ORD flights (MSP, STL, RDU) are gone. They still show up in later schedules, but I'm guessing those aren't finalized yet and the S80s will probably stay put in DFW for the duration of their existence in the AA fleet. ...Jump to post
Yep, common place to see this type of stuff happening. Only question is will WNs union agreements allow this?Jump to post
I bet the LAX-TUL flight is, for all intents and purposes, a ferry flight to send an aircraft in for maintenance. On ORD-TUL, there is a very late arrival at TUL with a 738 and a very early departure from TUL with a 738. According to a 738 captain I know, that R/T is a ferry flight to rotate 738s i...Jump to post

The move into BWI by spirit is great. For a long time I’ve wondered why they continue to compete with the three majors and their basic economy fare’s.

Is there any update on the reconfigurations of the 737s and 321s? To my knowledge, reconfiguration has not begun yet. It is scheduled to begin in 2019 and finish in 2021. DL manages to pack in 192 seats despite having 1 more row of F, so I'm sure AA can figure out how to do 190. Does anyone know if...Jump to post

I’d have a hard time believing the DAL AS gates were apart of the LGA/DCA slot deal with WN. If they are truly AA gates on lease to AS, why wouldn’t AS just fly west with them? If they chose to leave and consolidate at DFW, wouldn’t AA get them back? Who says they won’t fly from them?Jump to post
By proving there were frames with EI registrations you are not helping my case. Ha ha I agree with you, there were EI registered frames. What were they then?
