Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) Aviation Thread - 2022

It won't be B6, they've tried it before and fly token service to JFK as is. If BTV regains Florida service, it will certainly be either Avelo or Breeze. You could call it token but apart from MCO what else would they do? To their credit they stuck with BTV through many years of declining market sha...

Re: Russian Invasion of Ukraine - *Discussion* Thread

Why would the West have a 'plan of action' for Ukraine winning? Beyond provision of support, which as I mentioned, changed in what was supplied as the situation did. The Ukrainian general staff seem pretty adept at not only planning but outfighting the Russians. ... Again, what part of the huge ins...

-24. I agree the logistics are easier, but they presume you have control of the air.
