Could this be a move to protect its turf before WN decides to stab them at Alaska? I find AS’s network in Alaska fascinating. Such a beautiful and exotic state with so many things to see. I'm not sure southwest would want to go into Alaska cause I don't believe most of their aircraft have the right...Jump to post

One of the missions of the USAF and USN aircraft is flight support for US Embassy and Consulate staff. Sometimes they move people around, especially the USMC guards.

It’s big, it’s safe, it’s cost effective and it’s comfortable. Each one of our 747 aircraft will be equipped alike, having 539 Economy Class seats on the lower deck and 42 Office Class seats on the upper deck, for a total number of 581 seats. 28 inch seat pitch??

Where exactly is he getting these pilots from to launch earlier? Hmmm :scratchchin: There is a West Coast regional with +650 E170/190 type rated pilots that just lost out on an extension for flying 36 E175's for a US major. Good source of pilots All those pilots could be absorbed by the major carri...Jump to post
The Federal Reserve ships a TON of cash around between NYC and major US Cities. You never hear about it because people generally aren't that stupid and the armored truck that drops it off is usually making sure nothing happens to it.Jump to post

How many airlines actually require some soft of medical documentation from passengers who want to have an emotional support animal. I know the law allows them to require it, but does not force it. I'm wondering if most don't require it and maybe they should. That would certainly cut down on the num...Jump to post

Who conned people to invest in this failure before it began?

This is complete crap and reeks of nepotism.
