SWA flight numbers don't mean squat as a majority of them are multi stop thru flights. 1 SWA flight number can have anywhere from 1 to 5 cities past the first stop. Adults need to grow up and stop trying to get free money for BS they didn't earn. The complaint was about a dumb FA so send SWA an ema...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

They have a problem canceling or severely delaying flights so good luck trying to get your money or even the flight.Jump to post
Seems to have worked for Elite and Contour! Elite has a very small foot print for a unique set of city pairs that will pay for direct service along the east coast. Their CalJet branded operation failed. Contour isn't anything other than a recent operation set up by Corporate Flight Management (Once...Jump to post
Who conned people to invest in this failure before it began? The people who are in charge of this pipe dream have zero clue about what the airline industry is today and what lessons were learned in the collapse of the real Midwest many years ago. This being a virtual airline is the same way the othe...Jump to post
They already announced Paine field flights. Looks like they are merging both companies into one. Looks like big things are about to happen.

This is complete crap and reeks of nepotism. There are 15+ regionals in the US with thousands of pilots that would kill for the chance to even interview at Southwest and would make great Southwest pilots. Southwest rarely even hires 135 pilots but now they are bringing on 700 plus people that have ...Jump to post

The MAX won't fly before Spring for any airline Really? I'm just speechless by that It will take months for Boeing to correct the software and then vet the heck out of it before the FAA and CAA will sign off the plane.

Is it normal for "maintenance and heavy refurbishments" to take almost 7 months to complete? Article is saying it left for China on January 1, 2019 and has been there ever since.

Does the FAA monitor these type of aircraft like they do a scheduled airline ? These are passangers carrying planes which should be subject to strict inspections by the FAA. The oversight by regional FSDOs into any for hire operation is low at best. There are plenty of passenger charter firms who p...Jump to post
The King Air 65 was the beginning of the family. It is a very under preforming airplane by today's standards. Depending on the model of 65 it either had a Take Off Gross Weight of 9,000lb or 9,300lbs. If it was a true military surplus version that wasn't pressurized and stripped to a bare cargo cabi...Jump to post

They will fail if they use RJ’s. They will fail period.

As of a year ago they apparently raised $750,000 and needed another $5-6 Million for round two to buy a defunct 121 certificate.

Southwest made their bed by arm-twisting Boeing to build the MAX, now is their time to lie in it. Completely and utterly false. I spoke to a Boeing engineer at length about this and his comment was “the rumor that just won’t die”. The first and last time WN insisted on any major design changes was ...Jump to post
The whole MAX fleet is worth 5,950 seats. Multiply it by the times the whole fleet takes off every few hours. That is a ton of slack you can't just blend in with empty seats elsewhere. Boeing will be paying out a lot for this grounding.Jump to post
Government wants a 5.5 mile "safe" zone. No taking pictures of airplanes inside that zone.

I noticed delta is sending 757s DTW-MSN since the beginning of the month. It arrives at night (DAL 2080), and leaves in the morning (DAL 2091). Pretty impressive, in my opinion, for MSN. Also seems like an odd route for a 757, being so short, but I assume Delta really needs the morning capacity out...Jump to post

None of that makes sense. The crew always know who the Air Marshals are. If the crew didn't know - how in the world would the person sending the acars?

Typically Airbus offers a single tank with a customer option to add a second tank the same size. Normally located in the same area on the other side of the fuselage.
