We're flying HU SEA-PEK and then PVG-SEA this October and I've read they have two different configurations on their 787-900. Some seats are 2-2-2 and appear a bit dated and their newer configuration is a 1-2-1 herringbone. Is there any way to know which type we'll be seeing on our flights? Have alre...Jump to post
Just a minor (but much more general than this thread) point, if you're referring to an obscure airport i.e. it's not LHR/JFK could people please just mention the city in the title. It's not you specifically, but it happens so often. Thank you...I like to think I'm pretty savvy when it comes to airp...Jump to post

Magadan, Khabarvosk and Vladivostok were the final citiies served and it was really pushing the capabilites of the MD80. Alternate airports were few and good luck finding de-icing fluid. Flight loads were fairly good...but local services were iffy for both operations and for crew layovers. Crew were...Jump to post
I'm shocked that they are still building 40 frames a month in Renton. It shows loyalty to their workers but at some point they'll have to stop.

Boeing is a company in crisis. I hate to say it but their survival as a leading commercial aircraft manufacturer is in jeopardy. The drip drip of bad news is killing them.Jump to post
Can’t wait to see F9 take on Hawaii from Denver. With UA’s fares being rather pricey, and SW’s routing requiring a west coast connection...they could make it work. ***Could also see them filling the gap between Hawaii and the Midwest (AUS, STL, MCI, MKE). Thoughts? This could put a dent in WN's fee...Jump to post
Very cool! AS does a lot of marketing to the LGBTQ+ community and sponsors Pride events throught the US west coast...even offering discount travel to these events.

SJC is the largest surprise. I was just in SFO in Feb. flying DL and other than a beautiful Sky Club, it was largely deserted around 5pm. I have no idea what they want with SJC when they're wanting to concentrate on SEA and LAX overall. LAS is already a big DL station, why not make that a Focus Cit...Jump to post
Knowing by now what's working and what isn't. My guess for the new destination would be GEG.Jump to post

I would love to see AS step up their game as to their inflight snack. Yes, there's a variety of for-purchase items but it'd be nice to have an option (salty or sweet?) for the complimentary snack served with your beverage. This is one area where they lag behind B6 and when JD Power changes up their ...Jump to post
Great memories of walking down the line at the airport ticket counters, picking up a timetable for each airline. Sometimes they weren't on display towards the end and you had to ask an agent for one. I guess I had caught the airline bug...after college I started my job as cabin crew and here we are ...Jump to post
Personally, I have taken the PDX to OGG route on a 737. It took 3 days to recover from the flight, as those seats are not ideal for 5 hour plus flights. I really wished I had taken Hawaiian instead. That coach seat of the exact same size on an aircraft other than a 737 would have made such a huge d...Jump to post
I think the single biggest mistake ASA has made on transcons is slow playing the rollout on the transcon aircraft on satellite wifi and the new F cabin...its a big mistake. Satellite wifi is supposed to be completed fleet-wide by the end of 2020. It's a big project, requiring major downtime for an ...Jump to post
The problem is, the statement is incredibly vague. U.S. carriers don't cite route profits. They don't give route load factors. They don't give route avg fares (although those are available with delay from DOT-100s). Doing extraordinarily well has little meaning. Exceeding expectations has no meanin...Jump to post
Why do I even bother reading threads like this when I know they'll degenerate into absurdity? All the majors are in the dumps right now...look at their stock prices! AS still has a lack of visibility on transcons from California. That'll improve but will take time...meanwhile, right-size the schedul...Jump to post
KSEA does have an airport master plan that actually runs through in detail all the things they can do to increase capacity and reliability. So instead of reinventing the wheel on A.net we could just go look at that document and ask what's holding it back from implementation. Thank you! Yes, the Por...Jump to post
My preference is the AS solution. Free streaming entertainment, tablet clips, and tablets to rent on flights that are long enough for it to make a difference. Even on AS you don't find tablet rentals anymore except transcons and Hawaii. The majority of frequent travelers own a tablet...and if they'...Jump to post

PDX thinks it should have all the same point to point as SEA. This silliness has existed for years. Both DL and AS have tried plenty of routes out of PDX over the years that couldn't sustain themselves.

I think it's AS's portfolio of mileage partners that push it ahead of WN and B6. I have my issues with premium seat availability using AS miles but if you're not insistent on a big seat you can get pretty much anywhere in the world using AS mileage redemption.Jump to post
Despite the challenges of the acquisition and integration of VX, AS comes out #`1 in customer satisfaction according to The American Customer Satisfaction Index.

Have a drink then dinner...first 1hr 30 min
Watch a movie or get some work done...2 hrs
Recline to lie-flat and try to sleep... maybe 1hr 30 min
Prepare for landing 30 min out
Unless it’s a red eye (which does not earn a premium rasm) I just don’t see the great need.
I think it's ridiculous that people expect a lie-flat seat on a carrier with an average flight time of probably 2:30. Yes, it might be nice on a transcon or Hawaii-West Coast redeye but they're not going to spend the $100mil or whatever it would take to install lie-flat on 200+ airframes for probabl...Jump to post

AS serves exactly 11 non-coastal US cities. JetBlue serves 17.
B6's problem is they don't serve the middle of the country. AS has done a masterful job of linking the middle of the US with the west coast but B6 has barely begun and it seems like they're not really interested. If egos allowed, a merger of AS, B6 and HA would be a sight to see! I think AS should s...Jump to post
So much for capacity restraint...NK and WN are going all out. It's shocking to read the huge additions to some frequencies by WN and all the new flying by NK.Jump to post
AA, DL, UA and WN would like nothing more than to kill off AS and B6. AS is in for a fight from the west coast to Hawaii. B6 is in a fight in BOS (much like AS was in SEA when DL decided to go big) and DL/AA at JFK. Both are battling low yields on transcon flights with shallower pockets than their c...Jump to post
So please correct me if I'm wrong. Is it true that WN's Rapid Rewards has no restrictions on the number of seats on each flight that can be redeemed?
