Some people here dont have a clue on how an airline operates, the moron who stated HP allows pilots to fly drunk is clueless and should join the majority of ignorant people when it comes to aviation, As for greg, Im sorry but HP isnt going anywhere or have you been under a rock lately?Jump to post
Yes but the conditions SUck big time, The Govmt wants HP to keep labor costs down. MORE? I dont know how much low can it get, in my mind the AW holdings Corp. is a mafia cartel always reporting losses 9-11 or not, planes loads have been very high but there is always an excuse. NOW there wont probabl...Jump to post
Latest numbers for AW November 2001 70% load factor from 69.5 in 2000 Only major to report back to back increase On time 86% november On time PHX 89% .5 cancelled During the 6 day thanksgiving holiday 99.9 % completion rate 2.663 flights only 3 cancelled Mishandled baggage down in the 3% range Beats...Jump to post
Correct me if Im wrong but wasnt there a video of an AA A300 with an engine fire over San Juan not too long ago, if there was I cant believe the media hasnt mentioned it, but then again the media is so ignorant when it comes to aviation. My opinion here , one thing led to another, kind of like that ...Jump to post
Here we go again, another HP bashing session. How do you judge an airline? some people report having great flights on us some dont, to those who ve had great flights HP is good and viceversa so whats left? the stats right, a measurement of consistency for all airlines, some base their opinions on a ...Jump to post
Bailout is the wrong word here, and for those who dont know how an airline operates and makes money please stay off the subject. someone suggested that a couple of days on the ground is no big deal, well they still have to pay the employees not to mention airport fees. No doubt the goverment is gonn...Jump to post
I dont give a crap who dies there or not, did they? I cant believe some people are concerned about this, probably the anti military liberal sissies. As far as women and children , werent all these bastards coward terrorists children at one point? say 10 15 20 yrs ago? It is my belief that when peace...Jump to post
Up until recent most of us here had our own little war, CO is better than AA, N7 wont last, this interior is better than that one, boeing is better than airbus or viceversa etc. after all this is an aviation forum but after tuesday I believe it has changed, That horrific sight Tuesday was not just t...Jump to post
TWA up until Tuesday I used to go up there during long breaks(downtime) to see landings and takeoffs but now I dont know, I certainly dont wanna be on the local news. I will probably attempt to spot from there again, if anything security will just tell me to get down but I dont see that being a prob...Jump to post
Now I understand why we were one of the first to start flying on Thursday, AWA22 mentioned people in SAN paying pretty high fares to get to their destinations, I personally critiziced the move but now I see the reason. 2 good things that help HP is the fact that there is almost no debt and McCain is...Jump to post
With the government possibly willing to help airlines financially do u think that they ll look at mergers with different eyes now? or the antitrust thing is too much?
about the airline-s saying if you really wanna help us let us merge?
I think this is a real strong possiblity.
Well it seems the contracted security at Sky Harbor didnt understand or have been under a rock the whole time, A few hours ago NW airlines employees were able to pass security with knives and other items banned now, this was at T3. The NW employees immediately pointed out to security what they were ...Jump to post
Well when I showed up for work this morning many of us werent allowed thru security until the FAA gave the ok whick took a while, then we had a meeting explaining the new security procedures and a time frame of when ops were going to resume and to expect a lot of overtime with all those backed up fl...Jump to post
This has to be a major blow to all airlines financially, specially now with the economy down. I think the feds are gonna have to take over airport security and reassure the american public that we wont become a missile. what do you think of having armed guards on flights? like in the movie pax 57, b...Jump to post
Yes, these cockroaches thought of it all, they were not going to cause the damage they caused with a SAAB out of albany, what pisses me off the most is the state of security in the US, these monsters had to have people on the inside.Jump to post
I cant believe 4 aircraft are hijacked and those bastards suceed at it, which brings me to my question, I ve heard israeli security is awesome and those mother ........ would not dare to attempt it there. What do they do ? what are their measurements? is it military? there has been a lot of talk abo...Jump to post
Well if Hp decides to get A321's then the runways in PHX and LAS will have to become longer in the middle of august with a full load. I cant understand why airbus decided to keep the same wing as the 319-20, cost probably, what about the 318 wing? is it the same? I really dont see the 57's being rep...Jump to post
This reminds me of the movie the New Yorkers where eveything goes wrong for the travelers but complaining about a hard landing? gimme a break, but I ll give him the benefit of the doubt, one bad flight doesnt make an airline suck, CO has been doing something right for some time now and they dont buy...Jump to post
When I saw and heard the news I emailed that idiot williams and let him have it, Im sick and tired of all these mother....... blaming us for everything and looking at us with a microscope and I also heard possible legal action from HP for giving false information which could result in loss of revenue.Jump to post
