I don’t see why AA people are viewing this as good news. It seems more to me like AA is giving up on competing in NYC on its own and is willing to outsource (not entirely obviously) domestic to B6 while it brings international to the table. It did the same with AS where it realized it could not bui...Jump to post

AS ATL-CHS AUG 0>1.0
This is a rather odd ball route for AS to begin flying. Possibly a way to Keep the Boeing traffic moving between SC and WA?
I suspect that is a SEA-ATL-CHS-SEA routing.
I thought RA is a Delta board member; furthermore some I'm sure he is under some kind of contract not to take a job as the CEO of another airline to protect Delta's internal management secrets.Jump to post
Considering the mess 2020 has been, why is that even important?Jump to post
Also, I'll had a few more thoughts on this thinking it through a little bit more. 1) WN likely had this mini-ATL build-up in the works before COVID. With their expansion plans obviously pending a strong 2020 and the MAX (eventually) returning to service, they were going to grow places around the ne...Jump to post
This issue comes up a lot on this forum. I am going to attempt to address the myriad of reasons why no secondary airport has been built or will be built for the foreseeable future. It's important to understand that not a single secondary airport has been built since deregulation. This is due, in la...Jump to post

There is no need for the bail out. If the airline was too shortsighted in using all the profits for equity buyback to increase the share prices, they deserve to be out of business. If there is a demand or need, a new company will emerge I absolutely agree. All those years of airline profits, someth...Jump to post
This bodes well for Delta as well.Jump to post
I wonder how this affects Delta pilots negotiations and the attempt to unionize Delta’s flight attendants. This outbreak should stay the matters at the moment.Jump to post
I would like to see a breakdown of how many daily flights are actually being cut from ATL, ORD, DFW, and LAXJump to post
This is getting ugly fast...with Narita gone in March it also guts DL's ability to get passengers to almost anywhere in Asia. Delta is temporarily reducing the number of weekly flights it operates between the U.S. and Seoul-Incheon (ICN), South Korea, due to global health concerns related to corona...Jump to post

Other Delta retaliation in full play here are: Hawaiian partnership so that approval is in tandem with the American/Alaska approval process. And the biggie of them all, the shocker will be...yes, I am going to say it, a partnership with one of the ME3's. Qatar will do quite nicely. Exactly a Qatar ...Jump to post
It’s seems like this is a wonderful idea and the best plan without a merge. However, let us not forget the pilot union of Alaska Airlines. They surely will not be happy if American plans to bring in or takeover some domestic flying. When is the next contract approval up for Alaska Airlines?Jump to post

No, ATL-DCA went from 4 daily flights in May to 3.

Seems that AA/CLT had it worse yesterday than DL/ATL. There were hundreds of cancellations there (both AA mainline and PSA/other regionals) and I heard there were lots of gating/parking issues last night. The CLT issues continued into this morning too due to arrivals being limited to the crosswind ...Jump to post
Wow talking about a turn of events. Qatar mentions it has no hard feelings and would actually like to form an agreement with both Delta and LATAM.

What flights will Latam have to Atlanta ? That's the news I want to know ? Most Latam traffic to MIA is O & D since Miami is the largest US destination from Latin America.

It always made me laugh that pundits and some industry executives thought China is "the key to profitability" or something like that. Delta makes its money the old fashioned way.

BOS-AGS, SDF. Good luck. I don't think there's any O&D market there, and the AA connecting market in BOS is just about shot from the cuts over the years.

http://www.airportviewer.com Select ATL and spend time observing traffic patterns. And, yes, peak efficiency is a west operation. Most 27R departures use the LC intersection. Heavies our aircraft with flow times mostly use full length. ILL What a fascinating real time tracker, thanks for sharing.Jump to post
