Wrong. Research has been done and aircraft cabins are the last place to catch something from other passengers. You have greater chances of catching diseases in a hospital. Why don't you post the source of your information? Show some data that has validated your point. I've checked my sources. Feel ...Jump to post
Already discussed here: https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=22294161#p22294161 IMO, it is completely reckless and irresponsible to sell commercial aircraft cabins to 100% capacity in the midst of a pandemic. Carriers doing this are placing their employees and customers at much greater r...Jump to post

WS isn’t letting a good crisis go to waste it seems. This kind of stuff can easily be brushed under the covid rug. That's not why they're doing that. Like everyone else, they're trying to survive. Without knowing the inside scoop, you can't make those assumptions. We're being taken care of far bett...Jump to post

Not Kai Tak, just a visual approach with no traffic...welcome to aviation.
When you are stuck in a confined tube breathing in recirculated air unable to get away it really doesn’t matter how far apart you are from your fellow passengers. If one of them is sick you are at high risk of being infected. Similar reason as to why things like cruise ships, aircraft carriers, pri...Jump to post
Curious as too if WestJet will apply for another CEWS for this round of layoffs as well. I'm not familiar with the collective agreement in regards to recalling the pilots, but if its anything like the company I work for, its quite a time consuming process so if the company needed staff quickly, we'...Jump to post
Thanks. I had heard about the reduced pay/blocking- I thought they were doing a block sharing to avoid layoffs short to mid term. I was wondering how they’d do that with them possibly parking that many airframes. Reduced blocks can only take you so far. Thanks for the info. Good luck to all. Yeah, ...Jump to post

The 737 replacement means Southwest will have to have a replacement S E C O N D aircraft!
A 600+ Strong aircraft fleet does not disappear overnight.
In which case that would be the operator and aircraft's fault. I have a hard time believing this was caused by an errant snow bank as the rest of the photos show the snow is less than four inches deep. Now a pot hole in the runway is certainly possible but I still stick with that part of the final ...Jump to post
To stop the armchair pilots and mechanics at the root: it was neither pilots', operator's or aircraft's fault for this event. Be patient for once and wait for official statements. Trust me, I know. He may be on to something. I read elsewhere that this particular aircraft previously had damage in th...Jump to post
