Oh, For Chrissakes….. "On Sunday, September 27, two customers were denied boarding on flight 1061 with service from Miami (MIA) to Los Angeles (LAX) after attempting to board the aircraft without shoes," the statement read. "After being informed of our policy, the customers became ir...Jump to post
Oh, this is going to be interesting... I guess if you shuffle them in to positions they don’t like and they quit, you can still claim that you didn’t furlough any... Or, you could have no job. In a pandemic as serious as 1918. Keep your health insurance. Keep some income coming in the door. I think...Jump to post
Meh airlines are not denying boarding to people that have a cough no matter how many times crews demand paramedics... Many people were coughing in the summer with allergies, smokers cough, hoarseness from the fires etc...Jump to post
Oh yes we can be shut down for years if needed, and don’t expect the vaccine to be done in 2021, i put my bets on 2022 as the mumps vaccine took 4 years, the current holding record.Jump to post
If you look at 2008, traffic rebounded fairly quickly. 9/11 took a bit longer, but that was a different event entirely. From a financial perspective, there's nothing to say things won't start back on the upswing this year. It's a question of getting the general public back onto planes and I think t...Jump to post
Wow am I reading this right? Major US airlines want to consolidate between themselves as in share the flights and passengers to save cost? These are truly epic times! https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/29/consolidating-flights-to-us-cities-could-help-stem-airline-losses.html?fbclid=IwAR2TWUvTgQ8oxcI7hO8DV...Jump to post
But I still believe that the BK could’ve either been avoided or at least delayed if not for 9/11 and the downturn that ensued. Either giving them more time in order to right the ship without the BK or some sort of wake up call that something needed to be done and fast. Perhaps some of the hardships...Jump to post

Can concur just got back from Mexico yesterday flights completely full only got upgraded coming back. Airports overcrowded.Jump to post
So it begins for the US carriers.Jump to post
Those parked planes remind me of 9/11. I wonder if Europe is shut down and the US if the economic ramifications for airlines will be worse than 9/11 in the end.Jump to post
What’s the latest on when the DirecTV contract ends? If it’s relatively soon they are likely going to wait until it ends for the 737 fleet before they replace the F seats. No sense of replacing them only to have to go back and pull the screens out in a short timeframe. Man I can’t wait until they r...Jump to post
This so called great hall is such a waste no one wanted it but the airport ceo and city. Now it looks like it will be in development hell for the foreseeable future.
It’s sad to think they could have focused on what the airport really needs. (More gates and a bigger international arrivals hall)
Interesting conclusion by the witness in the article, who reports she wished the airline would have given free alcohol to everybody to make up for the delayed departure. Let us see. Heated situation, nerves breaking loose... Let us add a bit of liquor on top of that... :eek: :banghead: Any incident...Jump to post
It would happen a lot less if the passenger were charged the cost of the delay, but that doesn't seem to happen often if at all. I think most of these people have no clue on the consequences. That would not be any different for any fines associated with the act, unless perhaps the door sign explici...Jump to post
Reminds me when United used to print huge one page ads in their Hemispheres magazine for “Go To Meeting” - “why deal with the hassle of air travel when you can go anywhere from the comfort of your home” or something like that. Asinine Really. I’ll have to dig out one of my older copies to grab a sna...Jump to post

-Cool seeing the 787 in the new livery.
-interesting seeing the “old” Business Class seat upholstered in leather to match the economy seats.

I was on the fence until just now, saw it in Denver. It looks much better in person.Jump to post
Lol! Susan Boyle! Love your list.
It will be interesting to see the livery on better looking aircraft.

I heard on twitter that someone found it on a 787 recently, but sadly don't have the link, I know they had previously been removing it, but this was the first sign that they may be reversing that decision. However I have seen any official word of this. Update: I tracked down the post it doesn't men...Jump to post
Well, Russian Air Force planes usually have to take a detour over the Caspian Sea towards Iran and via Iraq to Latakia. So that may explain the fuel stop. It must be a very rough comparison as mother Theresa probably never flew on an Air Force plane into a war zone where the nation of the Air Force...Jump to post
