A single obese passenger walking to the rear lavatories would have more of an impact on the flight characteristics than this. How is it worth grounding all these aircraft over 75lbs? It likely has little to no effect, as you say. However airlines are required to self report and correct discrepancie...Jump to post
Okay, so even if it is free, WHY would they think now is an OK time to reduce capacity by 25% to test a pilot program? People do not know about this program, and most people do not download apps for this kind of thing. In the age of social distancing, forcing people closer together in already crampe...Jump to post
Starting today the airport has launched a "premium" service to allow people to pay to board the train to the concourse in a separate car from the unclean. This results in the other 3 cars being even more cramped while the first car has no one in it. Absolutely insane and stupid idea to cra...Jump to post
I think it would be a nice marketing tool for United to start rolling out meal service / snack service in the cabins again. If they can fill all seats, what's the excuse for not returning other services other than a cost savings at this point? United is not filling all seats in fact less than 10% o...Jump to post
i flew on sunday and received a snack bag. it had a thing of pretzels, biscoff cookies, small water bottle, napkin, disinfectant wipe, and hand sanitizer in it.
i thought it was great. i hope that sticks around post COVID. seems to have made the service much faster.
Well we had Lawnchair Larry, is this Jetpack Jerry?Jump to post

Some VP's are in DEN this morning, and have called in the local media to make an announcement. No other details at this time. Mods: the UA network thread doesn't appear to exist anymore?

that's a lot of analysis for something that was handled right away only leading to inconvenience for the passengers on 85.

There was a crash of an AN26 cargo jet in South Sudan yesterday too with between 7 and 17 dead.

I think the view controls are frustrating.Almost to the point where it makes me mad. Doesn't seem like I can get it to stay "looking" where I want. I enjoyed the old FS ways to manipulate the views.

The fix to much of the above is for the airline to sell or hand out good quality KN95 masks. Two issues with that are, that people are still going to take off their masks to eat and drink, wear masks incorrectly and children (effective carriers) will still not wear masks. So in other words masks wi...Jump to post
Two new UA (OLD) Air Tran/Southwest B737-700's, delivered to UA in April and May, flew from PAE to ROW for storage today - UAL aircraft nose numbers 3758 (N15758) and 3759 (N17759) I also didn't see where nose 3757 (N18757) left PAE, but it did on June 26th KPAE-KROW as well - UA2707, so all three ...Jump to post

This may be a dumb question but why do airlines need their own independent operations at these airports? It seems to me many of the employees are contractors anyway so why can’t they check in UA passengers from 8-10 and AA passengers from 10-12?

Does anyone have any information on real AI traffic with real aircraft and liveries? Is it being developed? I can´t seem to find a proper answer anywhere.

Is egressing a plane using a rppe from the cockpit ever practiced by pilots? Should be part of the regular physicals! The leg injury was presumably from the rope exit, rather than the landing?

Surely even at lower settings, this'll have better visuals than FSX.
Don't invest too much time and effort into it right this moment. Focus on getting good grades in school and going to college. Of course, pick up whatever knowledge you can but don't burn yourself out. You won't be a 737 pilot in 5 years. It is is a long road that will take commitment and discipline....Jump to post
It looks like UA is adding DEN-CYS and IAH-TLH too, announced today. Interesting add at CYS - the airport had been subsidizing DFW-CYS and it seemed to be doing well. I wonder if there is any subsidy for the DEN service - does CYS still qualify under EAS? LAR isn’t too far down the road, nor is DEN...Jump to post
It's not a route announcement as declared in the OP's title; a route can't be defined with a single airport code any more than a line segment can be defined by a single point.

George Carlin had a routine about airline lingo.

Hawaii's ICAO codes do have a rhyme and rhythm. P = Pacific, H = Hawaii, then the first two letters of the IATA code. PHOG (PHOGG), PHKO (PHKOA). PHNL is an exception because it works out that HNL fits nicely with the syntax. If HNL followed the syntax it would be PHHN.Jump to post
The question remains: what will fill EV's void at IAH? The 50-seat market there is what supports much of the south and southestern US.
