This is resemblance of fan boys work.
The era of bridge hubbing (two or more connections) is coming to a close. Lightsaber I normally dont disagree with you, but here i do. Bridge hubbing is still alive and well. Until places like Fresno, Alice Springs and Wuhan start getting connected to hubs not within their country/region, then the ...Jump to post
The whole point of why SWA dominates airports like HOU DAL FLL is because theres a secondary airport market that they fill and they're known for it. AA operates DFW-IAH/HOU and UA IAH-DFW/DAL but only because its a hub for business/downtown pax kind of route. Hardly anyone would get on SWA jet out ...Jump to post
No. HOU has been a home run for WN and they would be the biggest fools in the industry to give it up. I wasnt talking about giving it up. I was talking about resuming DAL service or even flights to their top largest hubs. The whole point of why SWA dominates airports like HOU DAL FLL is because the...Jump to post
That’s great to hear! Went to Pima last November great museum. Now I’ll definitely have to go back. How does PIMA compare to Udvar-Hazy? Udvar-Hazy takes the cake, but Pima has some good stuff like being able to walk in the DC4 Air Force One that JFK used and cool things like that. Theres also A10s...Jump to post

Update on Terminal D Project: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/article/Airport-officials-fly-new-plans-for-international-13228403.php The thing i find funny in the article is there is no bag claim in D. Yeah theres a carousel, but it only gets used when flights get cancelled and pax recoll...Jump to post
I don't think Hiroshima or Nagasaki would go over well. Yeah, you're probably right. Even if trying to pass it off as an in kind gesture. Though, we do have a USS iwo jima.. We've had ships named after American Revolution battles too. We also have the USS Makin Island, and had the USS Midway and US...Jump to post
Nimitz, Vinson, and Stennis weren't presidents. I think there should be a USS John S. McCain carrier. Just keep the other McCain ships out of the McCain battlegroup and there shouldnt be much confusion. BTW imagine the a.net fall out if theres ever a USS Trump. :stirthepot: Personally I'm against n...Jump to post

Income equality isn't based off of some article about Jeff Bezos, its based off of the Gini Coefficient.
I know it's wiki, but it's a good go-to for quick knowledge.
So with that being said the same is true in the airline industry high prices and an inferior product so why not let foreign airlines come in like KLM wanted and set up networks in the USA to stimulate the competition as it is no longer viable for a new entrant to start and airline here in the USA b...Jump to post
Also, laugh at it 'not cannabilizing its JFK business' when they dropped a frequency from JFK to move it to EWR. If i had to take a stab at it, id say they dropped their weakest JFK frequency in favor of a prime time arrival/departure from EWR. How does the timing of the EWR operation compare to th...Jump to post
The ACA was a disaster. You want to ignore that fine. As for voting for Trump, just because you are prone to putting your foot in your mouth doesn't mean you can't be a good executive. As much as Trump is an ass our economy is improving and our enemies will think twice about screwing with us. Somet...Jump to post
AFAIK AF has never been double daily in IAH except maybe Privat Air flights. They were (at least seasonally) the last time I flew them out of there... granted, it's been a long time. It was AF036/033 (777) and AF038/031 (A332/A343); both were operating for each day I attempted to select (Tues was t...Jump to post
Do you think we'd see QF cancel PER-LHR when they get aircraft that are capable enough to do SYD/MEL/BNE-LHR? Or is the LHR-PER local market large enough to merit its own nonstop at least not on a daily basis?Jump to post
When you have CDG stacked up against: London: near-limitless demand to anywhere AMS: massive oil route FRA: Star hub Something's gotta give. It just sucks to see IAH with out the largest carrier serving CDG. Its definitely convenient for the southern portion of the US to connect in to get to Paris....Jump to post
That was CO's perpetual problem at IAH as well... they were dominated by just about every foreign competitor on every individual int'l route with competition. UA doesn't seem to have solved that issue. :checkmark: IAH-CDG did good during COs Skyteam days (for obvious reasons). But it still came to ...Jump to post
BA 747 to Heathrow LH 747 to Frankfurt I think they are both 747-400s though Lufthansa could have used a 747-8 as a substitute, that wouldn't be the first time. That would also explain why it doesn't show on FlightRadar24. Plane is scheduled to be a 747-400 but last minute swapped for a 747-8. Didn...Jump to post

Im more-or-less neutral on A vs B, but I love to see the A321 fanboys dog the 737s lie-flat capabilities and insinuating it will be inferior to the A321 in terms of comfort and TCON ability.
