What amazed me on my trip from HOU - MCO, we were stuck at ATL for a few hours overnight for a maintenance issue. They had cleaning crews walking up and down empty gate areas spraying disinfectant on any surface in front of them (i.e. Carpet, seating, table tops, counters, etc). Delta's aircraft tow...Jump to post

That's a really interesting move. It doesn't appear to be destination-limited. They must see forward bookings just collapsing and want to relieve some customer uncertainty to keep the cash coming in.

When would you say that policies for airlines on postponing/cancelling flights get relaxed across the board? Especially when governments are calling for suspension of non-essential travel.Jump to post
I wonder if WN regrets getting rid of their 717s they got with AirTran. Would have been a cool to see a tailjet in WN colors. At that time WN didn't have the software configured appropriately for efficient maintenance of a 2nd fleet type. Nor training. Core strengths are also core rigidities, compa...Jump to post

I haven't seen anyone talk about it, but is anything being done to sanitize aircraft potentially carrying infected passengers? Surely, simply spraying a can of Lysol in the cabin isn't going to resolve this. It made me think since Kalitta Air was used to bring US passengers back and ANA is being use...Jump to post
What I would like is that the aircraft had some malfunction and disappeared from but is still on the way and will land safely in Kiev. This is the last thing Boeing wants.

All the speculation being posted is making me laugh. Slowly turning into the aviation TMZ news.
737Max isn't going anywhere. It'll be back in the air. But I will say this may be the last 737 we see moving forward.
I used up my one free article per month, after which the site told me very politely to "get lost". Are there any renderings of the new plans?

Passengers should be weighed. The accuracy of the CG calculation (and thus the safety of the fight) is more important than anyone feeling "fat shamed". Weighing all passengers takes an enormous amount of time (and money) but will not improve safety. As far as I know, not a single flight h...Jump to post
I was on a Delta flight years ago, seated next to someone who had an 'emotional support' Pomeranian. As soon as I sat down, that thing lunged at me with teeth snarling. The lady was being defensive and saying it was my fault for it's attitude. I got up and spoke to a FA about being reseated, when sh...Jump to post
Just a thought from my travels in Europe and with regards to KLM's recent comments of flying less for the environments sake. Could not airlines accommodate passengers through Europe's extensive high speed rail? If it'll be days to get a flight out, has this ever been an option?Jump to post

Long haul with an narrowbody is a strong no from me I'm sure airlines won't care about you flying narrowbody or not ;) If the seat is the same, same width, same pitch, same service as in a widebody, why not? There are narrowbodies with more generous seating than high density widebodies! It's just i...Jump to post

AA ended IAH-JFK in January 2014. The route lasted less than 1 year and was only 1x daily on a 737-800.

Wild guess, but I’d imagine Houstonians are more loyal to WN at HOU than UA at IAH. Very much so when when the merger took place and jobs got moved out of Houston to Chicago. And then when United tried its best to block WN from getting the City of Houston to allow for International flights in HOU. ...Jump to post

I fly Delta a ton for work and always enjoy my 717/MD88/MD90 flights. For some reason and probably more mental, I feel they handle turbulence better than the 737/A319/A320/A321s if they had to fly the same leg. Plus, I've had better luck getting 717 pilots to do high power static takeoffs!Jump to post

That does not prove your claim you need to try again. As I said, it portends. That said, they are broke, and have failure oozing out of every pore. The specifics don't matter.

This has always been a software issue. Some folks posting here are acting this plane needs a re-design, while saying Airbus can do this, this and this. Looks like that won't happen.

Driving back from Dallas to Houston. We're hitting wind gusts around 27 mph on the ground, doing that in an SUV on high overpasses is scary enough.
