Very sad to see XJT tossed aside for C5. Yes, XJT has a much higher cost due to pilot longevity, but they also land in the runway each time. C5 hasn’t quite mastered that task.Jump to post
Wow. Given the lack of traffic, this is like crashing on an empty freeway. Clearly you missed how busy DFW has been. Either way, in order for a two aircraft incident to happen, all it takes is two aircraft; not hundreds. oh dear..... any word on what plane collided with the 175??? Hearing it was an...Jump to post
I live within view of KSRQ and I've noticed something with the addition of several airlines in the last year. Far more than other airlines, Allegiant arrivals seem to fly a very short, curving approach to runway 32. Without supporting data, I would say nearly all the other airlines routinely fly a ...Jump to post
Pilots have a union and collective bargaining agreement. As much as this site hates unions, this is proof why having one in this business means a lot more than family and culture. of course they're expendable. The difference between a pilot and a gate agent, even at the supervisor level, is literal...Jump to post
Looks like GTI 4351 took off for PAE and is now holding over the Atlantic burning fuel off. Anyone know what’s up?
The mistake world airways made was buying North American airline and kept the separate. World took over all the out standing loans from NAA. The new management of world was only looking for one thing make fast money and run the company in to the ground. Don’t blame the flight attendants and pilots....Jump to post
As someone who was there for the shutdown there are a few key items that lead to the demise of World. The purchase of North American Airlines ended up not being the benefit to World like it was initially marketed as. World never merged the two to get the ETOPS certificate that they wanted.

does dca plan to reopen 35x or will they only reopen the other terminal c gates until the new terminal is done? Looking at the schedule tomorrow there is nothing out of 35X. All of the regionals are CR7’s or 175’s. The downturn could serve as an opportunity to finish off the new world and make 35X ...Jump to post
It’s an idiotic pipe dream in an economic time where a 50 seat CRJ isn’t competitive and is doomed to fail.Jump to post
These cuts need to happen at AA as well as their wholly-owned carriers. There are too many layers of management left after the merger. It’s time to trim what needs to be trimmed, restructure the reporting hierarchy, and make AAG efficient as possible. Next step is to get rid of Oasis.Jump to post
It was going to be sold to TK, but word has it that Southern is putting it back in service and it supposedly flew LEJ-HKG today. Since your reply I've checked three times its status, the latest, now, have it appears active on F24 still at LEJ: https://www.flightradar24.com/2462541d It’s in the air ...Jump to post

Doug is great at mergers but sucks at running the airline after. Through all of this mess there’s an opportunity to reinvent the product and airline. What’s Doug doing? Looking for ways around the Treasury regulations and fitting more planes with Oasis. Doug will put AA into bankruptcy again.Jump to post
So far since COVID-19 has struck there have been a lot of developments in the Regional industry. Trans States, which was already going under anyways, ceased operations much earlier than planned. Compass has also ceased operations. Additionally, SkyWest has sought and been granted relief from the CA...Jump to post
As a current 175 pilot, I absolutely hope that the pilots at the majors don't give an inch of scope in order to put them at a regional carrier. If UA, DL, or AA, want them, then they need to be flown by mainline pilots for mainline wages.Jump to post
The writing was already on the wall that they wouldn’t have any flying left after the AA contract was up, which was pretty obvious OO was going to be replacing those with the 20 they bought for AA. The CP birds are owned by AA so I wonder if they’ll have OO fly them in LAX until the new ones arrive...Jump to post

Funny that they put so much time and effort into running away from Twin Hill and over to Lands End for the f/a’s, customer service and others, yet the pilots got a absolute garbage dump uniform from M&H.

PDT can't crew what they have and are shrinking which is why envoy has nine airplanes in CLT again this month flying their routes. Pretty sure the last thing they need is more airplanes.

I think it would make sense for PDT to have some E140s on hand, even as operational spares, or for use in some of those east coast markets which have reduced runway lengths.

Last I saw, could be wrong now, AA had the largest profit out of any airline in the world. I’m not sure when you saw that but AA lags far behind UA and DL in the United States.

Allegiant announced BOS, AUS, & LAX as seasonal routes from GRR.
AA in GRR is an absolute mess on the ramp at night. I believe they are up to 8 RON's with three gates. Envoy is consistently understaffed and flights go out late on a regular basis and sometimes wait a half hour to get parked. If AA is going to grow GRR they need to seriously look at how their opera...Jump to post
I haven’t read the paywall article, but: 1) one of the SY execs went to Amazon Prime Air about a year ago. 2) It sounds like this will be pulling resources from scheduled ops judging from the reference to balancing flying from Summer to Winter.

Republic has also picked a fight with AA and the wholly owned carriers denying them the use of D2 travel status and trying to force them to ask the gate agent to go outside their scope and list them as D6’s.
