With a number of carriers changing their liveries in the last few years there's been a global shortage of painting slots, so an ex-Air Berlin aircraft isn't high on the priority if it is otherwise in fine working order. Planes going in for D checks have to have their paint stripped for a thorough h...Jump to post
Yes, probably IAD-HND confirmation from UA. I think this would be the best bet. We already know they were awarded the route, so all that remains is the formality of actually announcing. The filing listed a 777-200ER, so it's just a shift from the NRT route. Agreed this is most likely, but I'll thro...Jump to post
Pretty sure the 748 can carry more passengers than a 77W The exit limit difference is roughly 50 pax, so they're pretty close, all things considered. It's the extra two engines that don't make those 50 seats worth it, though. When I was watching Flight Sim videos of Fictional United and Delta 747-8...Jump to post
Wow, that was a heck of a story -- thanks for sharing. I suppose there's a reason we didn't hear about it in the news, because it sounds like you were with a good group of professionals who made quick decisions, even if the end result was disappointing. Better than the alternative, for sure. While t...Jump to post
WN adding nonstop service out of IAD to additional beyond-DCA perimeter destinations such as AUS, LAX, OAK, PHX, SMF, and SJC is another possibility. WN is already cancelling routes and cutting frequencies due to fleet shortages from the MAX grounding -- they're in no position to be adding new rout...Jump to post
Yesterday I was transferring at Miami. Is it possible that I saw 2 737 MAX 8 in service? One Copa and another oneAeromexico. One at the gate and another one taxiing.At first I couldn’t believe but the winglets were definitely Max. Later I tried to find some info about reentering the service, but I ...Jump to post

Seriously, that's a pretty poor way of doing it. If topics are combined due to user requests, at least publish who requested it.
Then the question would be why? Hopefully not to drown / make topics get lost that they don't like.. You'd have to ask them. I can imagine it makes sense for some people — less fragmentation or duplication of discussion, more free-flowing discussion, etc. I don't really have an opinion either way, ...Jump to post
I think really no one likes those huge threads. Sometimes mods split a topic up early, e..g. Paris airshow. Maybe that is something to consider for 737 grounding etc. We constantly receive reports asking to combine topics into larger, general topic threads. More often than not, I err on the side of...Jump to post

Is this a cut in capacity? Currently AF uses an A388 and 777 on this route. They only operate the A380 in the summer. In the winter, it cuts back to a daily 777. OK, so year over year it would be increased capacity with more frequency. Thanks! Yes. It's nice to see that they can support more than o...Jump to post

Could it Be a matter of Ownership of the B764's What might be the Lease terms? Those airplanes did NOT come new from the factory to S-CO. So?

If I were an executive that intended to start a full frontal assault on the scoping clause, what I would do is let the fleet age badly and then say to the pilots that there is no way that the airline can afford to replace hundreds of B737-700/800 and A319/320 at once. They have no choice but to all...Jump to post

Together, these two developments prime the potential for commercial airline service at RMN in the not too distant future, perhaps in the next 10 years or so.
