The best part of this whole story is Compass was located in DL Building C, @MSP Now they have to find an office and hanger space. The only place I know of a hanger is by SY. But Endeavor uses it.

Lastly, pilot pay is rising quickly across the industry, and the E190 doesn't allow JetBlue to spread its pilot costs over as many passengers as an A320 or A321. LOL.

B6 has been saying that the maintenance on the 190 is what makes it so difficult to keep on a cost basis.

I wonder if this will give them the excuse/out they have been looking for to axe ORH If that happens the JFK service should be moved South to PVD where it will grab some nice business from Southern New Englanders looking to head West on the JetBlue system via that awesome hub at JFK.

I’m not a fan of an industry-wide bailout. It punishes airlines like DL who have paid down debt to be better positioned for an event like this, by propping up competition that should have gone away. It rewards poor behavior . . . Delta used Chapter 11 protection to transform their business into wha...Jump to post

For me, the tail is the tackiest part of AA's post-merger livery. It looks very "early 2000's". I hope this livery refresh leads to a more minimalist tail design Always reminds me of the red and white tail stripes painted (for a period) on the Douglas Dauntless dive bombers of the VB-2 sq...Jump to post
Riding the jumpseat once on a blue sky day between two domestic stations is not a representative experience of what pilots do. I used to be a dispatcher. Trust me, I'm aware of what pilots do.

Having said that this one employees decision is not a reflection of Delta Airlines. Agree with this 100%.

I am sure they worked on this for months now and that airlines were informed in advance. I am sure many of them have removed flights from the booking systems or have simply re-scheduled them.

FAA duty is 14, crew rest can be 8 or 9 hours now being increased to 10. Flight attendants never legally "time out" regardless of their scheduled work period.

False and ignorant of law. Crew duty limits imposed by the FAA supersede union rules. There darn sure is a recourse for when they’re broken.
Something to attach your check luggage receipt too. Printing seperate luggage receipts is outdated, NZ/QF both print it on your boarding pass.
