Wow that's quite a story, I was wandering if MDW also falls into the same category?Jump to post
Had no idea that Braniff had a large presence at BOS. Even at its height, it wasn't much. In the summer of 79 Braniff eked out about 10 daily flights...one of which was the B747 to Europe. Here's the centerfold of June 1, 79 timetable. BN flew n/s to DFW, DCA, DTW, MEM, EWR, JFK, MCI, PHL and BNA h...Jump to post
Thanks everyone reading all the reply's was interesting and fun.And the conclusion is stay away from commercial aircraft.Jump to post
Just thinking with only two major manufactures is there room for a third? Down the road I see a big market for replacement aircraft.Looking for opinions.Jump to post

Will BBD completely get out of commercial aircraft? I think this is a big blow for Canadian workers and Canada as well.. Yes, it will be interesting to see what will happen to the CRJ final assembly plant... I wonder if it will be taken over by Airbus to create space for additional A220 production?...Jump to post
Soon DL will have as many choices as a cruse ship line.Jump to post
A little off topic but this 70 seat idea is what BBD should have done make a next generation jet to replace ageing CRJ's. The CS100/300 is a great plane but very little market because of scope rules. It's a shame they unvested in the wrong type of plane. Then the C-Series would have been a imitatio...Jump to post
As far as I know loadfactors back in the days were much lower on average than they are today. Am I right? Correct. Also, back when airlines were regulated, profit wasn't nearly as much of a concern as it is today. I don't think airlines cared much about load factor back then. They were competing on...Jump to post
I think LAX did the smart thing and make only one runway A380 capable.After all there are only about 10 or so A380 operations a day,if that... That's not even remotely true.... three of LAX's runways are fully A380 capable, with no interference to concurrent ops elsewhere (beyond what's typical for...Jump to post

The JFK A321 was a A321T, they don’t fly the T in and out of LGA.

Now that UA has joined the ranks of AA, WN, AS, B6, F9, NK and G4 with utilizing billboard titles on their fuselage, will DL eventually make a similar move? There are certain Delta aircraft (ie A321) on which the titles look unnaturally small. I hope they don,'t change and follow everyone else,I th...Jump to post
Looks like UA is increasing it's game at EWR.Jump to post
I still say the globe has to go it's so out dated. Not much of a change from the previous livery.Jump to post

Odd that DEN is mentioned as there rarely are weather delays there Get strong west or east winds and the airport goes into very lengthy weather delays. Typically you're correct, but when weather delays happen, they happen big at DEN. Peace :box: Same scenario at EWR with strong northwest winds.And ...Jump to post

I was reading a local newspaper article that stated when the new terminal opens at LGA it will have state of the art security technology,integrated from curb to gate.So my question is does this mean no one can enter the terminal unless there employed or have a boarding pass in hand?Jump to post
DL is cutting about 20 departures at LGA next Sept. what's that about?Jump to post
