How ironic, Airbius launches an aircraft that leads to more international flying (a321LR) and it’s home continent is trying to discourage more flights. If these green taxes go to the general treasury what is the point? Less flying? How many Europeans flew on LCCs to vacation spots or home to familie...Jump to post
It’s so entertaining reading these posts of why SWA is still operating only 737s. Funny how it’s never a problem for an airline to only fly the A320 family. Hypocrisy just got up and left the room.Jump to post
I know this means absolutely nothing but in February I flew easyjet TXL-MUC and the plane had to be no more than 1/4 full. So I'd guess "not terribly good". Aside from the Costco-esque terminal building, easyjet in Berlin was a decent experience, especially for $45. Coscto-esque? I think ...Jump to post

Just went through there yesterday, its a shame the CONRAC is not moving, Going to be a lengthy bus ride. The I-10/Loyala intersection is going be a mess when most of the airport traffic gets funneled through it.

Thanks for the memories BN747, took back when I was a kid on my first flight out of DFW. Love the brief views of Rio Airways Twin Otters and American Eagle Convair.Jump to post
Thanks for the trip down memory lane, back when there were like 8 or 10 majors in the US (Young Anetters today would freak out at such diversity in livery and equipment). BWI may be fortress for SWA now, but I remember when Piedmont ruled it and Charlotte. Shame that Dayton and Syracuse lost their m...Jump to post
Not to mention the stadium is one of the first things you see if landing in LAS from the west and driving up the strip or I-15. The amount of eyeballs seeing the name and on TV in the fall makes this a slam dunk marketing awareness wise.Jump to post

I live now on what was Runway 35L. I would love to see an overlay map of Stapleton with the airport versus Stapleton of today.

Cape Air is in the process of accepting first aircraft. 9 this year, and 12 in 2020. Surprised Cape does not fly these with just one pilot.
It all boils down to whether you think it's better to use 1 almighty ship, with 'all the bells and whistles' that can do everything, or several smaller ships, for example 1 to get into orbit and to return to earth, one to land on the moon, and possibly one to get you there (think an Apollo CSM, but...Jump to post
If one lands on the eastern most runway at DFW, it takes about 15 -20 minutes to terminal A. What kind of time are we talking about when one says the runways are far from the terminal? I can't remember, 20-30 minutes? Looking at the aerial photo, we seemed to use the far runways, which go past an u...Jump to post

Ah yes, connecting from AA to BA in Heathrow. I would be happy with just more signage for connecting pax in sterile exit corridor in T3.

I have refrained from posting for a few days; and would like to give my opinion at this point on some of the issues raised and debate on this forum: 1) I generally agree with the point that a certain poster was clearly showing (up to that point) a highly negative view and had proposed a whole colle...Jump to post
BNA should be the next chapter in their story. I would not bet against them turning it into a 200-flight station. Absolutely BNA should one day be on par with BWI, MDW, DEN, LAS, etc. It makes a lot of sense. While it doesn’t (yet) have the O&D levels of those markets, it is the only viable mar...Jump to post
Here's a perspective from a customer who has transitioned between all of the recent "hub" airlines in DEN to end up with WN.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/18/business/boeing-737-charge.html Boeing said on Thursday that it would take a $5.6 billion charge in the quarter as it reels from the prolonged grounding of its 737 Max. That figure represents Boeing’s current estimate of how much it will have to pay airlines that f...Jump to post
Isn't it already the norm in Europe with airlines like Norwegian No, especially the LCCs. Maybe that's just a Norwegian thing then I flew Easyjet and Level.

no way in hell airbus gets banned from gov contracts. they'll get a slap on the wrist. executives never really go to jail.

Train travel is much more convenient up to a 3 hour trip maybe even 4.

1.they didn't but fuel was much cheaper so less of an issue and fares were higher 2.they didn't offer the frequency we see now One exception was DL and the L10 in the mid to late 1990s, especially between ATL and Florida.

Good explanation why retrieving the center section was going to be dicey. It was falling, and falling fast!
Folks, do you really believe Boeing has not had these same arguments within the company? Single aisle? 7 or 8 abreast? What would Airbus response and how fast?

How many of us here are old enough to remember when the CRJ 50 seater debuted (remember the articles in ATW, and Airways mags)? And how it changed the aviation scene. And now the company that ushered in that era is leaving the not only the segment but market.Jump to post
Contrary to all here, I think Airbus' response is genius. They know the order is far from done and that at any time IAG can walk away from the 737MAX. They also know that if they provide a price that is lower than what IAG got from Boeing, IAG will try to and get Boeing to match Airbus' price. And ...Jump to post

A positive step for Airbus and it’s shareholders.
Some keep stating that the P202 was designed for Cape. What did Cape want in an aircraft?
And until the FAA allows single pilot operations in a 19 pax aircraft this segment is dead with the US commuter or regional airlines. But all things are cyclical.
Good news for Boeing, they needed some orders for the 737, but is this a done deal? The wording says "Would consider the 737 MAX as part of diversifying its future fleet and to spur competition". Why are there no renders or models of the 737 in an IAG group livery? An LOI is far from an o...Jump to post

Well I was talking to a colleague today who did some revenue work for AA in the late 90's, and he said they used to REALLY overbook flights (like, 50% over real capacity). And then at the gate, if most pax showed up, AA would start giving generous compensations for those who volunteered to offload....Jump to post
But still on sector between 250 - 400 NM (I know it's a niche but doesn't the Q400 a niche aircraft) don't you think the Q400 can make the difference compared E2 or A220? AFAIK, the A320NEO has the ATR beat on flights longer than 45 minutes, so no more than 200 nm. A contact tells me that his light...Jump to post
