Last MD80 into CMH just landed as well. Water cannon salute planned for its final return to DFW in about an hour. Good group of spotters on hand to say goodbye.
This fleet retirement seems to be getting a lot more fanfare than a lot of other recent big retirements. Seems to be bigger deal than when UA & DL retired the 744s a few years ago. In a weird way, everyone knows but isn't directly saying it, its the end of the old AA we all knew and loved that ...Jump to post
Again, MWAA knew all of this, and they in fact predicted it. The dynamic still holds true today (B6 isn't coming back to IAD anytime soon), the key difference has been UA's decision-making. IAD is still weaker than DCA on local domestic traffic. It seems to me that WN and B6 entered DCA limited. Un...Jump to post
I have always wondered why Braniff did not chose their Boeing 707-327Cs for their South Americam routes(aka LAD) rather than Douglas DC-8-62s.Braniff retired their 707s by 1973.I could only imagine if Braniff kept their 707-327Cs for their LAD they would have been upgraded in the wide body look cabi...Jump to post
In September the MD-80s will all be retired.Which aircraft will be next to leave the American Airlines fleet.The Boeing 757 and 767-323ERs have been slowly leaving the fleet
for several years as newer aircraft are being delivered.When is the 757 and 767s scheduled to be completely retired?
On June 19 2019 I was on JetBlue Flight 719 from JFK-ATL leaving at 259pm,The flight was scheduled to be a Airbus A320 but got a A321 instead and it was all coach seating.I thought A321s were used on longer flights.How often does a A321 fill in on a flight scheduled to be a A320 ? I was staying at t...Jump to post
JetBlue does not seem to be in a expanding mode.They are pulling out of DAB and people said the flights were always almost full.Also they are dropping BWI-FLL/MCO.How is JetBlue doing at PHL for their routes to BOS and FLL.I would like JetBlue to give CMH another try.They also dropped a few routes f...Jump to post

doulasc I am sorry for all the sarcastic posts on here. I enjoy discussing the feasibility of air service to various communities and I don't see why people need to be so rude in commenting on your post. To answer your question, I don't think Portsmouth is an ideal location to start air service. It ...Jump to post
For a glance of Allegheny Airlines' service to Portsmouth (PHM), check out the following link: http://timetableimages.com/ttimages/us/al69/al69-15.jpg By that time, Allegheny (AL) had purchased Lake Central, and AL was flying Lake Central's old Nord 262s into PHM, with flights to CVG and Parkersbur...Jump to post
Portsmouth Ohio opened a new airport in 1957 near Minford ohio and Lake Central Airlines started service to the Ohio River town.In 1968 Allegheny Airlines bought Lake central and Allegheny served PHM until 1971 with only two flights to CVG. I am hearing that today a Hotel is being built at PHM and p...Jump to post
Pan Am never upgraded their 707s or 727-21s to the wide body look.In the USA American Airlines did their 707 fleet and someone told me Western upgraded their Boeing 707-347Cs.Pan Am,TWA and Nothwest orient did not.I am assuming Braniff and Continental did not as their 707s were retired before 1975.Jump to post
I hear there will be a Lockheed 1649A Super Constellation at the new TWA hotel at JFK.I hear it will be the one from Auburn Maine that was used for parts to restore one and I hear that one will be shipped to germany as restoration has ceased.The one that will go to JFK will it be the whole plane or ...Jump to post

Living in Naples for 33 years, surely flew a variety of planes including plenty of the PBA DC-3s to from MIami and Tampa, Piedmont F28-s to Miami and Tampa and finally Delta commuter jets of some sort to/from Atlanta.

Naples Airlines flew Martin 404s in 1977/1978 3x to Miami, 3x to Punta Gorda, and 6x to Tampa. It was a division of Provincetown-Boston Airways. The one-way intrastate fare from Miami was $21.00.

Regarding B6, they have already gotten rid of at least one full flight simulator (down to 2 from 3); one fixed based trainer (also used for pilot training) has been deactivated due to the cost of maintaining it. I would say the long-term prospects for the E190 at B6 aren't very good. What will JetB...Jump to post
We all know that TWA's Boeing 707-131Bs lacked the HF tail Antenna because they were a domestic plane and did not fly overseas like their 331s and 331Bs and Cs.TWA also had the 707-131 non fans which were retired by 1972 and those planes had the HF Antenna.Did TWA fly the 131s overseas sometimes or ...Jump to post
