the article says that southwest is the largest Max operator with 34 aircraft grounded. I would assume they have many more on order that they are not taking right now. I believe you are correct. So the problem gets exponentially worse for potential new hires and upgrades. I also wonder if Southwest ...Jump to post

I just spent 6 weeks in Europe, rented a car 5 different times. After filling up the cars to turn in and paying what I paid, I touch down at XNA and on the way home see that Sam's Club's gas is $2.17 a gal. God Bless America. If you were touching down at LAX, SAN or SFO you would not pay $2.17 a ga...Jump to post
Your comment that airlines should remove "magazines" neglects the sales of ads in those magazines, which may easily outweigh the cost of carrying it on-board in the first place. I've seen the rates some airlines charge for ads and they are not small. It's probably a good investment, too, b...Jump to post

I actually like the idea of airlines only being able to operate at one airport. The split hub operations in cities like Shanghai, Seoul, Tokyo, and New York aren’t great. Airlines selling connections that require a bus, train, or taxi across town is not passenger friendly. Yet no one at all forces ...Jump to post

One of the first pieces of documentation I would require when purchasing used hydraulic pumps, RATs, generators, actuators, etc., was a non-incident statement.

I hate when I get denied at first take and then have to argue and even call a senior agent to end up being granted access.
Methinks you'd see a huge spike in insurance premiums as well which would be another financial hurdle for operators/airlines etcJump to post

$2000 a month anywhere I would imagine is basically a poverty wage. $24,000 annually? Yikes!!!

Maybe this will steer WS away from the Euro business class plan and create something more substantial to compete with AC.

Revenue went up. No nothing "declining". It's easy to pick numbers right? Their PROFIT declined. That's the bottom line figure of any financial statement.

I know of some US airlines doing this as well...conducting spot checks on contracted cleaning vendors to ensure they aren't taking items off the aircraft (bottled water, blankets, etc...)
Seems petty but that does add up over time
Simple answer is No, if at any point you would be beyond 60 minutes from a suitable airport. While the aircraft may be capable, it is probably not certified per the airlines OpsSpecs and thus cannot be used as such. As a side note, it probably does not have the required Nav Data Base loaded into th...Jump to post

HA has problems with their overall product. Small things here and there add up to an experience that is not worth the price - especially since HA charges a premium for their A330 first class.
