Wall Street for the most part has backed off although they usually get 1 person per quarterly call to bring it up. They’ve calculated it would be about $1B in revenue , but are figuring they are getting that back in extra business by not charging...although that can’t be actually calculated. As lon...Jump to post
The pressure to add baggage fees is heavy, just from the margins they would generate. CEO Kelly so far has resisted though SWA has fees for priority boarding. But what about the next CEO, will he or she have the same stance? SWA's seasoned work force is getting expensive and its feeling yield pressu...Jump to post

I hope the airlines are ready for most passengers to bring an obscene size of carry-ons through to the gate now. Gate checking will happen on every single flight and I expect more fights to happen on-board. This is all on them. Nope, with the airlines attaching size limitations to their cheapest fa...Jump to post

I was looking back through the DFW Investor Day presentation and noticed they’re planning to spend $150m to keep C at “steady state.” Wonder if any of that is customer-facing or its that’s pure HVAC/Utility type work That's interesting and would be good to know.

Oh how times change. When the 50 seat RJs debuted, U.S. passengers marveled at how a smooth, comfortable jet was available in lieu of a cramped, bumpy turboprop . 20 years later, the 50 seat RJs are by and large revolted as they lack F, WiFi, and other amenities that even the larger RJs now offer. ...Jump to post

I am glad I to fly on a Mad Dog one last time in June from ABQ to DFW. Some of the interior panels were worn, but it was a smooth and quiet flight. Like Lightsaber stated, its time.
Personally, seeing the Mad Dogs retired will be the last fingerprints of former CEO Robert Crandall at AA.
1. Did not notice any construction with the Taxi Y bridge, what was done to it? Those bridges have been there since DFW opened, they probably need a heavy refurb and reinforcement.
2. The stinger for D, is it just and extension south of the present terminal to connect with Terminal F when built?
With no LGA movements JFK could run wide open in all directions, its literally got two hands behind it back because of the sharing of airspace with LGA. Bingo.

Imagine if I said lets close down DCA and BWI and consolidate the DMV into IAD, that's essentially what you are saying but much worse.

The issue as I understand it really is that too many planes between fly into the airspace around NYC which causes a lot of the headaches for travelers, my simply removing LGA from the equation, I don't think that would materially improve the situation here at all since I would presume that JFK &...Jump to post

Southwest business model is predicated on the 737. It will continue to be modeled on the 737. In the future it will be modeled on the 737/797.

That's not clear to me at least. One thing that makes A3xxx so profitable is its high build rate which leads to volume discounts from their downstream vendors. No. One thing that makes A320 so profitable is the fact that, unlike Boeing, Airbus doesn't need to dump the prices in order to win at leas...Jump to post

I really don't like Boeing's chances for this one. IMO, seems like Delta has been leaning Airbus in recent years. Going after the C-Series might have troubled relationships between Boeing-Delta.

CEO Enders may step down if neccessary. I'm betting he will be stepping down when all is said and done as part of wide ranging "house cleaning". It makes for good PR.
I would love for the ANET CEOs to explain to the Delta major shareholders why they "chose" to pay more for an asset because of a 'personal' beef.

So much for wanting a third competitor to the A/B duopoly. This thread hilariously exposes that the real point of rooting for Bombardier wasn't for the existence of another manufacturer.
