WOW was doing very well at BWI. Also, it seemed like everyone I knew back in Pittsburgh flew WOW to Iceland. When they added the A330, things tanked. Slow and steady to start will be good for them. This group seems to have capable minds and funding to make this work.Jump to post

Now, let's look up which of the few airlines have a perfect safety record to see what airlines one should fly. Oh wait - Allegiant is the first result. Now let's scroll down to the Ds - wait what- no DL,, no UA, NO AA!!! hmmmmm..... It’s been so long since any of those airlines had a mainline accid...Jump to post

Since the NG's have been doing the West Coast to Hawaii for a few decades now, it should be obvious that the MAX will have no issues.
Wait, who is flying the NG to Hawaii?
DL, AS, UA, WS, AQ and soon SY and WN.
Who isn't flying NG's to Hawaii?
The MAX should have no problems betwen LAX and HNL. Where did you come up with that theory, Let me guess, the internet? Surely you don't an ailine like SWA would buy an airplane without seriously evaluating all the possible route applications? Yo, chill out. It's not a theory but a question. It was...Jump to post

These are in fact former NA 767s. If I remember correctly, they formerly appeared in a 'sanitized' NA colors. No titles on the fuselage and certainly no massive US flag on the tail. When they were flying for North American (before North American shut down), they had the full livery, including the g...Jump to post

Just that word of caution on what you wish for. Expensive pilots opens the door to more automation in the cockpit using artificial intelligence, leading to 1-pilot cockpits, and eventually to fully automated aircraft cockpits.

It has been a bit since the news came out about AA dropping the six teams. We know Miami Air is picking up the Dolphins and Steelers. Has anyone heard who the rest of the teams will use this year? They're going to throw an entire American football team on a 738? I know that the Ravens typically use...Jump to post
Holy crap. That was very intense and it seems no one was seriously hurt. They were conscious when first-responders arrived, and transported to a hospital. The pair’s vitals were good, said Capt. Larry Kurtz, of the Orange County Fire Authority. At 9:35 a.m., the Cessna collided with one car, with de...Jump to post
And there are plenty of respectful 13-year-olds that want to learn, post thoughtful and well-written posts, and handle themselves appropriately.

Also, this is from a thread on Reddit: "I flew the ILS 6 circle to land Runway 1 in a Hawker at TEB about an hour before this plane went down.

May the pilots RIP. Just listened to the tapes on LiveATC. There are no distress calls from the pilots. They are cleared to land runway 1. Then tower asks them if they're "going to start that turn" [on to final, presumably], to which they reply, "yes sir, we're doing it right now&quo...Jump to post

As I preached before, Delta is looking to defer as many A350s as they can. United and American also are getting out of their A350s. So you must have a connection with Airbus then? Personally, no. I do not do any business with Airbus. But I do know some people. [/quote] Delta is on the hook for some...Jump to post

Me! haha. Airbus sales employees were in a panic over this about a month and a half ago and it was making its way around big time. Haven't heard as much about deferring 350s once DL/KE came to a JV agreement BUT I know DL has some issues with the 350..... Wouldn't be shocked at all to see a deferra...Jump to post

That would make sense, Polot. I was told they don't want them because the Asain market isn't as healthy as they would like.
Mark my words, the A350 is in big trouble with US carriers.
Listen, I don't follow aircraft orders nor to I really care about them. All I can say is that I had a lengthy conversation with an employee in Airbus' sales division. Airbus had employees in Chicago two weeks ago doing damage control when UA wanted out. UA, Delta, and American do not want the A350. ...Jump to post
Again I don't know what swamp I stepped into here, but UA will not receive the A350.Jump to post
Has it been mentioned that United is mulling their A350 order?
Edit: I don't follow this stuff much but I was talking to an Airbus sales employee a couple weeks ago.
