When I worked air ambulance, I remember the company fighting with LGB over the curfew as well. They wanted the patient's chart and a bunch of other information that we were unable and unwilling to provide due to privacy laws. Most airports just have you sign a form attesting that it was an air medic...Jump to post
What will happen to the pilots in this situation? I presume delta will investigate to see if there is any blame? I'm sure DL will investigate. Also, the pilots probably filed an ASAP report and assuming no intentional disregard for safety, should be protected under that program from any company or ...Jump to post
There's no shift interlock that requires you to depress the brake on any bag tug that I've ever seen. Some of the newer pushbacks have it, but the tugs are just forward, reverse, and neutral. The parking brakes usually adjust by spinning the end of the handle, so it is easy for them to be adjusted w...Jump to post
In my experience, depending on the airlines, it is usually sent via ACARS or done via in range radio call. The crew usually will call in range about 20 minutes out from the airport and notify the local station of inbound SSR passengers (wheelchairs, etc), confirm the arrival gate, and confirm if any...Jump to post

Probably would've been better to say nothing or if asked about the order just say that historically Boeing and IAG have been strong partners and will continue to be so moving forward.Jump to post

How many of the -800s have the sky interior? I believe UA switched their MAX order from the -8 to the -9 right? I’d imagine most of the -800s have a good decade before a replacement is due? Not sure how many have sky interior but it’s very few. UA 737s are badly in need of a refresh with Boeing Spa...Jump to post

Thats pretty decent compensation from RCI. Recently when they announced they were redeploying Independence of the Seas from the UK back to Florida for 2020 they were only offering a refund and 25% off a future cruise. Getting a cruise plus 50% back is very good. I think it is decent. However, Cuba ...Jump to post

I hate when OCC tries to cause disagreements between crews and station agents like this. If ops told me to close the door to trap the crew, I'd hang up with them and turn to the crew and ask they are ready to close the door because ops wants it closed. If they say no, I'm not closing it. We are all ...Jump to post

Wasn't ETOPS just Boeing lobbying the FAA? If airlines and aviation really cared about safety, if they really put safety first, I don't think we would have ETOPS. Either way nobody would buy it over the A330neo. 8 abreast on a 4 engine aircraft just isn't profitable anymore, and it also isn't suite...Jump to post

Depends on the airline and the agent. I've never seen agents allow it unless the two passengers are traveling together. They don't always require them on the same reservation number, but at least be friends or family that are traveling together. I've also never seen an airline publicly publish a pol...Jump to post
Love the term station manager, very old school 60s. Seems like something from a Cold War spy movie. Umm...this is what they're called in the airline industry. The local airport management in charge of the ground (aka station) operations is the station manager. It does sound like an old spy thing th...Jump to post
The previous airline I worked for had an aircraft painted in a scheme for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. The joke was always "make a wish it leaves" because of the mechanical issues with that one tail number. Independence Air (well I guess it was ACJet at that point still) had a Dornier 328JE...Jump to post

And why are they not in JFK? I could’ve sworn that I saw a WN 737 parked near T4 when my HA flight was taking off from 22R on October 19th. Is there another airline with a similar looking livery to WN (all blue) operating out of JFK? Probably was Sun Country, although as of a few days ago they've m...Jump to post
I work at G4, and it was truly sad to see them go. They were the backbone of our fleet for a while, so it was pretty emotional for us. Few things compare to the sound of those engines starting up, especially the distinctive "pop"! Agreed, I actually left G4 just about a month after the la...Jump to post

A couple years back I flew on an Iran Air Tours MD80. Now, my memory could be shoddy, but I am fairly certain that it was 6 abreast. Would this have been legal? Are you sure it wasn't a 727? I can't think of any way to squeeze a sixth seat in an MD-80. Not so much a matter of legal as it is practic...Jump to post

The system is still installed onboard the aircraft. I know AirFi staff were onboard several weeks ago tweaking the system and are supposed to be issuing a firmware update. Maybe they are waiting to advertise it until the update is completed and the service is more reliable?Jump to post
In the US, customs requires advance notice of flights through both APIS and at least for GA flights a notification before departing the international origin for the US.

Yup. It was an award that we invented and gave it to ourselves. And no other airline has eve come close. To be completely honest Southwest won the on time award when they weren’t using ACARS.

Is it compulsory? Do they sit you down and lock the doors? (like on an aircraft!) Take a roll call to see if you missed it by hiding in your cabin? Yes it is mandatory.

I'm betting one or two FAs will take me to task for that suggestion, but having travelled on one or two boats in my time, I don't recall being subjected to any briefing as to the use or location of lifejackets.

Surprised they went with CLT instead of setting up shop at Concord, NC / JQF. USA has no real room for NK unless they somehow coordinated schedules with G4.

Problem with LA is that a secondary airport like ONT won't ever stand-in for LAX based on its geography. Its one thing to serve ONT as another airport in the basin, but to make it your sole airport for LA would lock you out of the bulk of passengers and be too far away from where people want to vis...Jump to post
They tried various options like LGB and LAX had the best success. I've read before that ONT is expensive to operate out of. Why expensive? Because they built a terminal no one asked for?
