Could they do college sports teams charters..small teams?? This would actually make a great deal of sense. There is a dearth of lift in this category for smaller gauge teams (college hoops, primarily) and the old ExpressJet had a ton of experience in this regard. But going alone as a standalone ind...Jump to post

I haven't seen the operations count, but winter is where they 'pay the bills' so to speak. Most people who visit Yellowstone are driving. But almost the entirety of the ski traffic is flying.Jump to post
I guess someone knows better than the combined might of the NTSB and FBI.

April to June is probably the best possible time to do it. Only risk is late spring winter weather that could delay the start, but that's absolutely the lowest traffic period. If they can jam on it, rock the project, then summer tourism traffic can be retained and they'll be set for winter peak. Tha...Jump to post

Anyone have a pic of the lightning strike?

My brother in law is a sheriffs Lt. in FL and generally says setting at 9 mph over is the "commonly accepted" margin. Not a rule, mind you, but generally safe.
8 over in West Texas is ticky tack AF, man.
How horrid. Just unfathomable.
I certainly hope the Catholic Church is held to account. This will get worse before it gets better, I fear.
If they can pull this stunt on him, then they can pull tis stunt on you. What stunt? He got a fair trial.

After having been in the airline universe for a few decades plus, I still shudder to think of how many utter imbeciles run airlines.
AA is fully to blame.
Agree on the responses about their corp comm.
WN really failed to read the room while yakking about their 50th anniversary.
And given the stories of a total information vacuum, planes that had long tarmac delays, cancellations, long delays, no intel, what a really bad look.
The usual Teflon Southwest has handled this terribly from a corp comm standpoint.
What a real headache for them.
GDB- I've said it before but it bears repeating, thank you!
I've really enjoyed your posts on this subject, given your own rich experience in this arena. Great stuff!!
She has to claim this because it is her only chance of overcoming an at-will-employment firing . Being a woman is not a protected class, though.

Some of the points Anonymous makes aren't wrong. It begs the question of just how far a company can interfere in an employee's private life and personal opinions, and the voicing of said opinions.

Wow-great news for AUS. The level of air service there is just amazing now. It's incredible the kind of growth ATX has had overall and how much additional traffic and incremental routes AUS is getting. Wasn't that long ago that everything was going to a hub and connecting from there.Jump to post

I have my concealed carry here in TX and it's not an arduous process to get. It is also very useful.

Keep this in mind, folks, from Neeleman's own mouth: "“I doubt we will have a single route that has any competition,” he said. So if Breeze is serious about a point to point network, then the city pairs literally have to be unique. This would require some very creative airport pairings if it i...Jump to post
