[twoid][/twoid] Using the current interline agreements can be a solution that will just need SPAs (Special Prorate Agreements) for each city pair. Not easy to implement but can be a solution. SPA's can't be ticketed in isolation- there needs to be an issuing carrier sector attached to make a through...Jump to post
I don't think this will be approved but if it does, it won't be codeshare, since it will take two or three months to implement with all the testing that needs to be done.

Does anyone seeing Interjet flying in 2022? Even if they get some help to stay afloat i can't see that being anything but temporary. Yes, THIS government will not let them go belly up. In my opinion, the current administration (government) will let Interjet go belly up for several reasons: First, I...Jump to post
Standard Danish unemployment benefits. Nothing permanent. Nothing special. Don't try to compare it to Italy's nationalization of AZ where the Italian taxpayer will pay the salaries of employees working for a structurally insolvent airline. I am not trying to compare it to Italy, I am just stating t...Jump to post
And for what? Where does the Italian government think that AZ is going to be flying? One thing to save 11000 jobs, but SAS is reducing their staff by 90% coz no one is buying tickets. Totally baffles me that this AZ saga goes on and on. Yet the Danish government just guaranteed that all SAS employe...Jump to post
No chance, I as a UK Tax payer refuse to pay for these failing airlines, if they crash they crash. That is business. There won't be much left of the UK if the government lets all industries collapse. The airline industry touches so many other industries and they will all suffer. Just talk to the pr...Jump to post

I tried looking this aircraft up on Airfleets.net, but nothing comes up for YV502T. FlightAware shows the flight, but not being a premium member, no registration is available.

It is a performance issue due to elevation, weather variability, an approach through mountainous terrain and challenging take-off procedures due to the mountain in front of the runway. The 757 is able to fly the longer flights with less restrictions (MIA, EWR, ATL, JFK...)Jump to post
I’m scheduled to fly LAX-OGG after Christmas on the following flight:
UA454 LAXOGG 4:00p-8:06p 7M9
My original flight was a 5:45p LAX departure operated by a 738 that got axed two weeks ago. I was moved to UA454 which is now operated by a 7M9 along with UA417 LAXOGG

And as far as I'm aware, there are no US airlines hiring foreign nationals, at least not in any sort of significant numbers.

That seems like an excellent idea. The only problem would be that SJC has shorter runways, so running a 77L from there may be difficult. SJC's runways are 11,000ft (3,353m) long. EK flies FLL-DXB which should be 300+ miles shorter from FLL's 9,000ft (2,743m) runway and they don't seem to have probl...Jump to post

I flew on one of their 767's last night (TF-ISP) and I can say that the product is quite good. The cabin interior looks great and the planes don't show their actual age. In their in-flight magazine it says that they brought 2 new recruits in 2017 (2x B767s) and they expect delivery of several Boeing...Jump to post

There's a lot of cheap ERJs and CRJs in the boneyards. My guess is they'll start there.

Chinese might need VISAs to visit the US, but the Mexicans do not, even with our current president. Mexican citizens need a visa to enter the US, even if it is only to transit.

I think it is wishful thinking with NK/F9 unless they have solved the core problem which is that the NK/F9 reservation systems are bare bones and don't really work for alliances. I don't think such a thing can even be accommodated presently. Navitaire has been working on new modules (via partnershi...Jump to post
I agree with you but why choose for the atr instead of adding the 175 to their fleet? Also a said earlier it's seem that overcapacity made them dump at least 4 * e190's . In return the will be using their larger 737. The E170/175 are scope clause planes. Airlines that don't have a scope clause in t...Jump to post

There is so much airliner know-how in the US currently. Throw a DL or AA management on the likes of AZ, AF, SAS and there could be hope. Seriously!

You've mixing RM platforms (i.e. Sabre) with RM algorithms.

There is a lot of information available on the algorithms behind airline RM systems.
