Re: PC-12 Ditches in the Pacific

It sounds like they had some daylight to work with when they ditched. That was either good flight planning on their part or good fortune. The chances of a successful nighttime ditching in rough windswept seas would have to be in the neighborhood of 10^-6. But even in daylight this is a great story o...

Re: Does anyone remember the LA basin airline

Neat bit of history. Talk about puddle-jumping. Like the OP, I am curious what type of a/c was used. Ironically, with all the autonomous passenger drones that are in the pipeline, we might see a return to these types of flights. Especially if the drones are shared rides, you could have one party goi...

Re: Cathay Pacific DC10 order

Appreciate all the replies regarding DC-10-30 versus L1011-250. The difference in MTOW is striking. Wikipedia (for what’s worth) and another site suggest the -250 had a MTOW of 510k, a little more generous than what was said above. But even granting the 510k, it’s still no contest compared to the 59...

Re: Cathay Pacific DC10 order

I don't recall whether CX only had -1s or some -100s, however, some 40 years, DL converted several of their Tristars to -250 variant, which gave'em a range comparable to the DC-10-30. I'm sure CX would have considered all the options if they really wanted such Trijets. Point taken about the -250, b...

Re: Cathay Pacific DC10 order

But it fits with the fact that was mentioned up thread, that the DC-10-30 just was more versatile than any L1011 variant. It seems Lockheed real...

That's encouraging to know. :crossfingers:

Or they're expecting a lot of connecting traffic.

:thumbsup: Thanks. Not too bad for starters. Those numbers are split across all airlines, though, so Frontier must be expecting a good amount of market stimulation (they can't count on poaching everyone from the other airlines).

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

The flight has gotten way more buzz than Orlando, Denver will be a hit. There rightfully should be buzz. The Denver route lifts BTV from being an eastern-US regional airport to the national stage. MCO O&D is a bit less than DEN. RDU is about half of DEN. I could see MCO sticking around. RDU see...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

Allegiant was also competing with themselves at PBG, and there is probably too much overlap in the catchment area for both to do well for them. RIght, but the network folks at Allegiant knew they'd be competing with themselves and they aren't stupid, so there must have been some other factor(s) in ...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

Great marquee route for BTV, they're longest scheduled route ever, by far. Also stands a good chance of giving BTV its first A320 NEO service. We all know Quebec travels (at least those that travel to BTV, or PBG for that matter) are very price-sensitive so F9 is probably able to find a market that ...

Re: 3 Southwest special liveries landing in a row at SJC

Thanks for your responses. I figured this was basically a "black swan" event. But prob & stats aside, these special liveries are great marketing for Southwest. Even my non-aviation wife and friends ooh-ed and aww-ed as Tennessee One went over.

Happy New Year

3 Southwest special liveries landing in a row at SJC

This past Sunday afternoon (the 30th) three Southwest special liveries landed one after the other at SJC: Colorado One (SW5638 from SNA at 328pm) Tennessee One (SW3389 from BUR at 338pm) Triple Crown One (SW362 from LAS aT 340pm) These are straight from flightradar24, but I personally saw Tennessee ...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

It's worth noting that Deputy Aviation Director Nic Lungo mentioned re-paving of the concrete around the terminal will allow the accommodation of "Larger planes." Also, this is an airport management that likes to be tight-lipped about expansion plans; so just because they're not public ab...
