Re: American Eagle / Wings West Questions

They were at Santa Monica before going into LAX. I liked their green livery especially on their BE99s. I liked how both WestAir and Wings West went from 492s to grow into the two big commuters in CA then get swallowed up and gone.

Re: AS BOI focus city

To many quotes to do; AS BOI uses 12 gates here. 2 are set up with jetbridges that can handle anything in the AS fleet. Then ground bording positions, which can accommodate pretty much anything. Alaska sends in 2 737s a night into BOI. And a few throughout the day for turns. And, that's why I would...
