Did Allegiant do charter flights from MIA to Cuba in like 2007-2011? I remember seeing some Allegiant Aircraft at MIA in the terminal around that time. Yes. Even after the charters ended, Allegiant had some maintenance work done at MIA. Aruba Airlines plans to resume Aruba-Miami service. Effective ...Jump to post

Apologies for not being clear. I meant just ANY 737s sitting in the desert that could be easily brought back into service with a quick paint job. But most of you have made clear points why not.

I’ve noticed that lately Swift Air has been repainting some of their 737s into this uninspired white and blue livery with no titles and the logo of iAero Group (their new owner) on the tail. 5547437,5472543 It’s a shame if this becomes their standard livery considering how colorful and striking the ...Jump to post

Flew PHX-ANC-PHX on the neo last month and both flights accidentally(?) let all passengers connect to the WiFi for free. However, it was terribly slow.

As a Dallas resident who flies 'a lot' I just want to chime in that I despise this union, viscerally.

Actually, the airline has said in the past they would base (up to 4) some A321LR in Argentina. That may seem a good place to start.

General question- why doesn’t UA repaint all of their already delivered MAX’s while it won’t further interrupt flight scheduling?

I know we've discussed that there is not enough value for AA to add scimitars to their 738s. However, is there a reason AA doesn't retrofit its A320 family aircraft with sharklets?

Didn't AA started this with the merger with US, and it wasn't it one of the first customer-facing changes? FEBO ended at the same time, if I remember correctly. You are correct.

I have to laugh when people talk about the "clientele" of certain airlines. I have flown Spirit & Allegiant a few times and they were perfectly fine. I have also flown AA & DL first class and WN many times, so have at it. Ironically, 20 years about these same people would’ve been ...Jump to post
The timings were awful. I don’t understand how LATAM can’t make once daily BOG-MIA work when Avianca does it 3-4 times a day and some of their flights are even A330s.

If I recall correctly, US had clearly defined PHL, CLT, and PHX as their hubs and DCA as a focus city; although BOS had a sizable US operation, it was still just a large station for them.

The thread should be renamed to reflect that this only applies to musical instruments and sports equipment.
