Proof? Use google. Read the news stories. Visit the pilot forums. WN failed the table top exercise more than once. They had a lot of issues in getting certified for ETOPS. This whistleblower report seems to agree with the facts of the period. So, you don't have any proof, then :D I just used Google...Jump to post
$125 each way for my dog to travel under the seat in front of me is absurd. I fully admit that I abuse the system though her paper work as an ESA is technically legit.

How are they really going to feed the MCO/TPA flights? Local traffic? Local traffic sure, but Orlando is a huge feeder market for Latin America, Tampa less so but still important.

So, honestly, you did not read my post. I never said that you are going to 100% be the last person to board, just that there's a decent chance that you will board in the last group ( Key word: no seat assignment ).

Honestly, wanna getaway on WN is basically basic economy (no pun intended)... you’re last to board, don’t have a seat assignment, and will likely be separated from the other members of your party .

How will DL’s soft product necessarily be inferior? They are going to be using mostly MNL-based Filipino cabin crews (except for the US-based purser and “chaser”).

Southwest needs to figure out what it wants to be. Right now it’s a mess, living off the cherished legacy of its past and founder.

As if AA needs any more trouble on a VFR route from JFK that will soon see B6 competition... I don't see the route lasting long once B6 enters.

Where are you getting 2 hours? The article says the game ended just after 7 and they didn't even board until 11pm, so the delay was closer to 4-hours.

The lawsuit may well be about more than the A350 usage. AA may think it also applies to their more universal and widespread use of the term 'Flagship' in their descriptions of AA lounges, premium services, and interiors. The problem with artificially inflating the perceived scope of infringement is...Jump to post
AA has no claim imho Weak. Can probably hold your breath in the time it'll take for this to get tossed. Their lawsuit is silly and is a waste of time and resources.

I don't think WN would ever acquire the a220. However the E2 is far more likely as stated above.
