It’s really no different than people painting “Coca Cola” or any other retro marque on a classic car. As long as it’s not used for commercial purposes, it’s usually allowed.Jump to post
Let the bloodbath begin. We deregulated the US airline industry in 1978; it's been pretty ugly ever since! But at least ma and pa Kettle can afford to fly Allegiant's $19 fare from nowhere to nowhere else, and clog up the TSA line for thirty minutes as they vehemently explain that their liquid medi...Jump to post
The new F9 (I flew them a few years back when they were a full service). There prices are dirt cheap, but because of getting free luggage from status or free trips from miles, F9 never ends up being cheaper by a margin high enough for me buy a ticket. Flew them once, and I'm not sure if I got lucky...Jump to post
They're all defunct now, but I was always intrigued by the fact that I never got to fly on VASP or Transbrasil as a child. I did a decent amount of domestic/regional flying between 1997 and 2005 in Brazil, but only ever on RG. In fact, my first flight on JJ (in which I even had family members workin...Jump to post
Looks like a 727, so I’d guess Amerijet or the like.

Interesting report! And I wonder if this is different by route? I recently flew AA MIA-JFK in F, after 8PM (my flight departed around 9), and dinner was served, with choice of lasagna or beef. We also got the cookies you showed (which were warm and very tasty). Actual flight time was around two and ...Jump to post
Isn't there (or wasn't there) some sort of rule stating that every so many feet of fuselage there has to be a full size door? I remember reading about something like that but can't remember now if it's currently a thing or if used to be a thing. If still a current regulation, that could explain why.Jump to post

The correct answer is they all can, without refuelling. You would however need to install the required ferry tanks on all the models bar Citation X & Longitude. Even then, prudence would necessitate at least one stop (Azores). Exactly. Interestingly though, in the case of the Citation X at leas...Jump to post

I actually hope someone from United Airlines is snooping around here.

In all honesty, what has me interested in this story is that now Zach is (even?) more famous among the industry workers. And he flies UA a lot.

Wow, is there a trend? Today, LA also fired an employee for posting a misogynistic and sexist video at the World Cup in Russia.
I guess the lesson here is once again for people to watch what they post on social media - especially if they work for a company with a social media guideline policy.
Can customers also get a refund if they mistakenly buy an air ticket? (I think the answer is yes, if caught within 24 hours). Not sure if because of US law, but I believe BA does allow this, if caught within 24 hours. A friend recently purchased an MIA-LHR ticket in the morning, and realized in the...Jump to post
I mean, they still do have A332s stored in QSC I believe. As for the rest of the fleet, I've all but given up trying to understand what they're doing.

I don't see flying into FLL as a problem, especially if they play it like AD did in Brazil and sell the flight as having the destination: "Miami (Fort Lauderdale)" in order to attract customers not familiar with the area. It's worked out pretty well for AD, and they don't even undercut the...Jump to post
Is someone really asking this question? Wow. I mean, if you think about it, it makes sense to ask.

With A35Ks coming and A359s still flying for QR, what are the odds this goes A350 eventually, even if just due to slack in the fleet? They're def keeping the 763s busy.

I wonder if they'll go against TP on other BR-LIS routes? They don't seem to expand much internationally out of Brazil outside of GRU though.

More than half of TP A332 fleet is already full-flat Business class in a 1 2 2 configuration. Unfortunately A340s are not. Thanks for the clarification.

I think it is really great that JJ is expanding. It was what everyone was expecting after the merger came through. And if it wasn't by Brazilian ANAC allowing aircraft exchange between two different countries/airlines we'd probably not see this expansion going that fast. Great move by the ANAC. Tha...Jump to post
More good news for LATAM. Looks like the route will be served by a 767 according to the article posted by the OP. That means that, depending on the configuration, it will be a 2-2-2 or a 2-1-2 seat layout in Business, with a 2-3-2 layout in Economy. It may not be the A350, but it's still a solid pr...Jump to post
I'm finding it really interesting that LCCs now properly paint their planes while more and more full service/legacy carriers move to plain white with color on the tail and nothing else.

I never understood why LATAM did not fly to Lisbon of all places. Could they announce OPO in the future?

While this has never happened to me on a flight, it did occur once when on a bus tour in Florida.

Pretty sure any program development costs would not be offset by potential (if any) customer interest.
