WN: I could see them trying to get more destinations and/or slots. A bigger LGA means bigger opportunities. I think an LGA-LAS flight could be a game changer for tourists. There is an obvious reason there are no flights LGA-LAS, unless it is on a Saturday it is too far for LGA flights. If weekday L...Jump to post

Folks clam down.... while reviewing the books and finding the greatest liability to the "financial" aspects of fleet adjustment, the IDEA of the 717 going away surfaced. What would Boeing accept in return for them to take back the leased airplanes? 100; 737 was the answer; well the NG is n...Jump to post
Unlikely rumor. Delta is not taking on debt now. Delta has mid-term contracts on the 717 for parts. I do expect DL to order the MAX, but later and after brutal negotiations. Lightsaber Actually, after the last podcast. They want to move the leases of those 717 of the books! You d think they buy mor...Jump to post
757-300 is the lowest operating cost per revenue mile domestic aircraft on a per mile stage. Green time is the key as to what gets parked and what flies. All major maintenance is on hold right now. Internal talk is the MD88/90 fleet will be retired soon. On date was communicated on this week's VP c...Jump to post
Breeze is going forward. First E95 is about to come out of MTC in Brazil in their specs and flown to US to begin proving flights. Breeze will operate as a charter airline initially, which by the way was part of a back-up plan should the economy go into the shitter. Complete hiring freeze and everyt...Jump to post

Something is seriously wrong with this company.
I do not understand why has delta not picked up some 77W since the ER will eventually go away? Select the '8-K, Current Report Filing' from the available choices. https://ir.delta.com/financials/default.aspx#sec This is the first time I recall DL talking about fleet simplification as a goal: Reduce ...Jump to post

KLM was the only airline operator of the Douglas DC-5, with four aircraft. This also makes them the only carrier ever to operate every commercial Douglas airliner DC-2 through MD-11(excluding the DC-1 as only one prototype was built). -Jonas KLM never operated the MD80.

United seems to have a new network planner that "thinks out of the box"; Second destination announcement that goes "away from norm" CPT is an excellent choice to avoid JNB hot and high restrictions. And VCP certainly can give them a source of revenue away from GRU a busy airport ...Jump to post
Probably something to do with LAA maintenance not being allowed to touch LUS, per union contracts, and vice versa. Not sure about specifics, but I'd speculate SFO has contract maintenance for LUS equipment, and AA maintenance for LAA. Perhaps the part was stocked by contract maintenance instead of ...Jump to post

Yup! 350 introduction was close to a disaster. Unable to say more. Really? Wow. Did it have to do with reduced capacity or are you not allowed to say From a pilot training department point of view it was a major disaster but that was totally on a few of delta’s management pilots and they’re gone be...Jump to post
Airbus 321LXR Fans..... WHY would an airline growing into a major market like EU chose an airplane that at best would be stretched for this mission? A330 is the logical choice for this evolution, not sure they need the 333, but 332NEO would fit nicely and be capable to do JFK HNL as well as any rout...Jump to post
JetPilotMike wrote:Delta doesn't need it because they outsource a lot of their widebody flying via their joint ventures. Good (maybe great) for their balance sheet, but not so great for their pilots.
The very best example for this theory would be the 757/767 comparison..... the 762 had similar CASM/RASM than the 752 the 763 & 764 much improved figures. The problem of narrow bodies on sectors of 6+ hours is the "common space" restrictions, ie: aisle crowding, lavs crowding and the c...Jump to post

Just like the parent airlines, regionals will go through consolidation. There are currently 14 on this list. I would think half a dozen could get eaten.

Regardless of the bottom line.... If you are counting on the NO SHOW factor with todays revenue distribution automation to make a few MILLIONS....

The REALITY is..... as stated here DL is proactive at soliciting volunteers so they do not end up with INVOLUNTARY OVERSALES.

IMHO Aircraft Manufacturers may streamline the EIS for a particular model by limiting the NUMBER OF CHOICES in the components, however it shows how this can be a liability for them as well. They may want to consider a procurement process that includes 2 or more choices for the buyer.Jump to post
