Would a regional jet derivative make sense for them? Please god, no. Why do you say that ? Maybe Dassault could well re-jig the airframe and tweak the wing of the 10X and turn it into the next efficient regional jet.

It wouldn't shock me to see DL/UA "downgrade" their product to AA levels in the interim at least. UA recently announced they’ll be adding seatback TVs to narrowbody aircraft. Seems they’re going in the opposite direction. Source: https://onemileatatime.com/united-airlines-seatback-tv-old-...Jump to post

This may have been mentioned in another thread, but AA will be flying the 787-9 on DFW-ANC during peak summer season. It will be a daylight service on DFW-ANC and a redeye on the ANC-DFW route. A bit of a surprise, unless AA is banking on carrying a lot of cargo. While I get that Americans will wan...Jump to post

I'm not understanding why they need an augmented cockpit crew on a 7.5-8 hour flight JFK-LGW. Would this be FAA mandated if they went over 8 hours? It’s the westbound flying that’s an issue - one ground delay, rough winds aloft in the winter or de-ice event in Europe and you’re over 9 hours of bloc...Jump to post
Wow! The seats should be canted towards the windows (which would also allow the TV to be fixed rather than folding), but that is pretty impressive if you ask me.

Also interestingly what widebody would AA use? B788 in 20J (Consider A321T has 10F20J, I don't think it would be B788)?

Delta really hacked BOS amongst other things Indeed, it looks like the (soon-to-be former?) focus cities at BOS, RDU, AUS, CMH and CVG all took it pretty hard on this update.

Zero surprise here, unfortunately, given how deep COVID has ultimately cut. And so again, DL is now the only US3 with Airbus widebodies.

Was it DL or Airtran that made EYW a captain-only airport? More to-the-point, do we know which carriers consider it to be so?

Without getting into the politics of it all, I wonder if this is really driven by the desire to collect overflight fees, because revenue is revenue at this point, or to truly be diplomatic. Either way, it's quite the positive development for all involved - and it's about time.Jump to post

Why would the 737 be weight restricted going into SNA from the east coast? I can understand on days with severe headwinds, but not on a regular basis.

Republic 175, same as Indy. Both are Republic bases. Not sure about the PIT flight.
Pretty impressive cash burn control, given the current environment. Yes, their size and lack of international service makes them especially nimble right now, but doing all of the headcount reductions and avoiding pilot furloughs is quite impressive, IMO. I hope they’re able to keep it up.Jump to post
per the last PWA any pilots laid off at DOS (date of signing) would trigger all 76 seat jets to become 70 seats or less.

To be fair 76 seats is the right size for these markets. They were flown by 30 seats before. Oh, I’m not disagreeing with regard to the smaller markets you’re referring to. What I am saying is that a 175 doesn’t belong on SEA-ANC/FAI or other major markets. It absolutely should be on ANC/FAI. I thi...Jump to post
