IAD screwed it up starting in the late 90's. Concourse A used to be the concourse at the base of the old control tower adjacent to the main terminal. When the regional airline terminal at the end of Concourse B was built, that became Concourse A. The west half of the old Concourse A suddenly became ...Jump to post

MIA/FLL - Right side. A majority of arrivals to these airports follow the coastline. Some very nice views. LGA - Usually the left side. LAX - Right side. SFO - Both sides are good. I prefer the left side. For those who get nervous thinking the plane is about to land in the water, may I suggest an ai...Jump to post
Yes, Hughes Airwest, top banana in the west.
747-200 outlasted the 747-SP. Several versions of the 737 should outlast the 737-600. I believe the EMB-145 will outlast the EMB-135 and EMB-140. The 747SP is still in service. According to Wiki, the last revenue flight of the 747SP was in June 2016. As of July 2018 there were eight 747-200 freight...Jump to post

As an American I can tell you most Americans have never heard of PMI. There is no marketing of PMI targeted towards Americans. For those reasons there is not enough traffic to support nonstop TATL service to PMI. PMI is also a leisure destination which usually means low yields. Therefore the best op...Jump to post
L-1011. When those RB-211's start, you feel it.Jump to post
UA L1011's which they got with the Pan Am pacific routes.
DL DC10's twice. The first time when they leased some while waiting for the L1011 and the second time after inheriting them from the Western merger.
DL A310's didn't stay around for long.
AA MD87's and MD90's inherited from Reno Air.

In the 60,70's & part of the 80'sseat pitch was 33-34" on most carriers in coach. So no they did not suffer or die due to narrow seats. Also the 17" wide seat was used on the BAC-111, DC-8, DC9, 707, 727, 737, 757, L1011, DC-10, 747. So everyone must have suffered horrors and still do...Jump to post
Technically SFO isn't in San Francisco Technically it is. SFO sits on land which belongs to the City and County of San Francisco. No. SFO is on unincorporated land in San Mateo county.

Instead of the Caravelle, they should bring back the Trident. It will be stretched, have a modern cockpit, and carry three CFM LEAP engines in the back. It will have enough range to do TPAC and no worries about ETOPS. It will be called the "Trident-8" because the aviation community seems t...Jump to post

I find the incredibly spacious 3-3 seating in the mock-up to be an extremely rude, in your face, eff you by Doug Parker to the millions of AA passengers watching the video from the cramped, narrow, 30” pitch seats in the Main Cabin. They looked more like seats in the gate area than airplane seats. ...Jump to post
I always thought the L2 door on the A321 was smaller than the L1 door and that the L2 door was an emergency exit only. Having jetways for both the front and rear doors would be great, but of course it should be a jetway where there is very little chance of damaging the aircraft in case of malfunctio...Jump to post
Does anyone know how well or unwell SY did on their current service? It doesn't really matter how they did going to STS. They flew to STS to position a plane to do college football charters for colleges in the Pacific region. The planes had to be repositioned to/from MSP anyway so it only made sens...Jump to post

In the 50's, didn't TWA have to stop liquor service when flying over Kansas because Kansas was a "dry" state at the time? I vaguely remember hearing something about that at one time.

RE europe to Hawaii, I don't understand why US airlines never tried a virtual direct (one-stop) flight on single aircraft, even once weekly and seasonal, to test the waters. Western Airlines used to fly HNL-ANC-LGW with a DC-10-30 in 1981. The route was flown twice a week. They didn't make any mone...Jump to post
I hope someone fills the void for Germany- Fort Myers service if all long haul is gone soon which I suspect it will be. I would think this would be an obvious choice for LH/Eurowings to pick up. After all, Eurowings seems to have had trouble finding routes that stick. This would be a solid optoin. ...Jump to post
TXL will have Miami and New York-JFK only, for a total of 2 routes. I just saw on my facebook page that AB is no longer accepting reservations for MIA-TXL after November 2.
