Re: Southwest Announces Colorado Springs, Savannah, and Jackson

Southwest has announced plans to add flights to Colorado Springs (COS) This is a bit surprising, given that Colorado Springs really isn't a major tourist destination. You still won't find any recreational marijuana for sale, and DEN is closer to the ski resorts. I suppose COS is a sizable VFR marke...

Re: AA Retires All Airbus A330-200s

I wonder if the A320 would be the next, consider the age of the fleet. If so, AA would only have A319, A321, B738, B777 and B787 left in mainline fleet. Also it would be an interesting game to play to guess when the first AA B777-200 is to be retired, it must be very close now, maybe in 2-3 years t...
