I love it, and echo what others have said upthread - after the recent LH and EI flops, this is a refreshing change. IMO, it's also a relief, as SK's current livery was already fantastic - just in need of a slight refresh. They did very well here.Jump to post
Hey all - I recall threads a few years back singing the cost and maintenance benefits of plugging the 737 eyebrow windows above the cockpit windscreen, and recently noticed that AS has not plugged its older 737NGs. Is there a specific reason for this? Not enough life left in the birds to achieve a u...Jump to post
A general question for you about this, do you know of any cases where the iPad system backfired somehow, pilots leaving them in the taxi, stolen ect? iPads are left/lost/otherwise missing regularly. I've worked in crew scheduling at multiple airlines, and it's happened at every single one. Dependin...Jump to post
Checking the GDS, it looks like the RDM-SAN/LAX/SFO, GEG-SFO, and MSO-LAX flying is QX. The rest of the 175 adds, as of now, are OO.Jump to post
Do all of these routes get covered by competitors or was WN the sole operator on some of them? Depends on how one defines sole operator. For example: Dallas-Love (WN hub) to SFO competes with Dallas/Fort Worth (American hub) to SFO. They are different airports and different operators (UA & AA),...Jump to post

WHAT'S WITH THE ALL CAPS TITLE?! ;) In all seriousness, no, they shouldn't. They got out of the game because it wasn't profitable enough.

BTW any other North American carriers flying 787s to Hawaii? Can't think of any....mostly because Hawaii doesn't optimize the 787's capabilities. AA uses a 787-8 on ORD-HNL, and will add a third DFW-HNL rotation for part of the winter on one as well. Other than that, no, at least until HA takes del...Jump to post
The MCO-SYR cut on B6 is especially disappointing. Allegiant must be killing their yields with SFB/PIE-SYR.
Finally, some changes at AS. Heavy on Florida this winter - is this their highest service level yet on PDX/SEA-MCO/TPA?
That’s not what I mean...... my meaning is that destinations I.e.LIH with no DFW service can be an opportunity for WN. AA flew DFW-LIH two winters ago with a 763. There’s a reason it hasn’t come back. Yes, that sounds like a lack of pax (for AA) , but 7M7 (should 737 MAX grounding cease) will be a ...Jump to post

I didn't know there was any other requirement than one flight attendant for every 50 sets.

I think it looks better ten-fold on the 320 than it does on the 330. The white:color ratio on the larger gauge is too much white for my eye. The titles are way, way too small.

Starting 02Apr19, AA adds a daily 737-800 RON on ORD-SYR. Schedule is as follows:
AA1192 Dep ORD 1850 Arr SYR 2136
AA1290 Dep SYR 0737 Arr ORD 0855 (Begins 03Apr19)
Exciting! I'm pretty sure this is the first mainline ORD-SYR that AA has flown since shortly after 9/11.
Glad to see SYR is getting AA mainline this spring, too. Jim I’m glad to see the CR9 disappear from CLT. SYR has had mainline on 2 CLT departures fairly consistently for the last few years. The AM departure bounces between 321/320/319, and the PM is nearly always a 319. Nice changes for Upstate, af...Jump to post
Perhaps we'll see DEN-AKL?
I'm excited to see what this announcement possesses. I'm also surprised they were able to keep this one under wraps until the day prior; usually there are some rumblings before something big.
I know that DEN has a gate shortage right now, but who exactly is going to be occupying *16* additional C gates, let alone the A gates being added? B, I get; I actually thought UA would want more than they're getting. I can't see WN taking all of the new C gates; that'd be a lot of growth, and I'm n...Jump to post
If American can serve all four Hawaiian airports from DFW, Delta most certainly can from SLC. Just a nitpick, but AA only serves DFW-HNL/OGG year-round (the former often being 2x daily, at that) and KOA seasonally. LIH won't be coming back as of now. The 763 made the route an operational mess, the ...Jump to post
The reply is saying CUN is no longer a INTL trip and doesn't require a language speaker. OK ... I misunderstood then.

On TLV, the 787-10 will replace the 77W frequency. Incorrect, the 78J will replace the 772 on the morning flight (UA84/5). Or summer 2019 UA at TLV is EWR daily 78J+77W SFO daily 77W and IAD 3x 772 I must've missed the upgauge on SFO-TLV. Quite a far cry from the original 788! What a winner TLV is ...Jump to post
I'm not totally sure; I wouldn't doubt that they feel they "need" to be in LAX.
