I don’t understand the purpose of this exercise. If you are traveling Y on a Norwegian 787 or Y on a KLM 787 you are having the same impact on the environment. This graph would make you believe you were being 22% more efficient traveling on Norwegian, which is patently false.Jump to post

I would never use SEA as an airport that plans well for the future.Jump to post

From the article: The shop is expected to boost the airline's Maintenance Repair and Overhaul business, as Delta TechOps serves more than 150 aviation and airline customers from around the world. That includes luxury auto brand Rolls-Royce, which signed a formal agreement in October 2015 for Delta T...Jump to post
Well, Etihad slots for 77X and A350s may soon become available. Airbus and Boeing have probably sharpened their pencils to place planes with a blue chip carrier like British Airways.Jump to post
No increase in gates with the IAF project. Way behind schedule, structural steel went up about 6 weeks ago. They are currently building the support on the A concourse for the sky ridge, and ground work has begun in S satellite support for the sky ridge as well.Jump to post
Sounds like a proposal, not a plan. I would be inclined to force municipalities that want an airport to share the costs. Blowing federal dollars in BFE for 40 people to board an RJ doesn't make sense. And how much will it cost to support this at the hubs? It’s likely well above $115 million a year ...Jump to post
I wouldn’t be surprised if DL also took on some used 738s if good deals become available.Jump to post

American is larger based on revenue, but it’s getting mighty close between DL & AA. As AA continues rationalizing their route structure post merger, there may be months when their revenue dips below DLs, but overall I expect AA’s revenues to continue to be 2-5% greater than DLs, just based upon ...Jump to post
I’ve never seen anything from DL stating a desire to be largest. When DL surpassed UA in size I never heard a peep about it.
Yes, DL does tout their operational performance, and the size of their profits, but I’ve never seen anything regarding overall size.
The Mexico/Canada routes, and Caribbean are catered as domestic.Jump to post
It seems the 787-8 size wise would be good for HA, but Boeing chose not optimize the -8 to -9 standards. Is this a decision Boeing is likely to revisit?Jump to post
I can’t imagine a scenario where someone denied entry to Canada is allowed in the US.Jump to post
So the new midsize aircraft is 220-270 and widebody.Jump to post
Honestly most pilots I know think it wasn’t fair that other employees didn’t get the same PS the other employees received. The employees groups at DL aren’t as tribal as I suspect some other airlines may be. In fact I first heard of the PS increase from a pilot checking in for his trip. He even used...Jump to post

Interesting that the current troubles at P&W are causing difficulties for fleets that won't be delivered for a few years from now. I don't doubt that the GTF technology is sound, it's just that the execution has been miserable, however, I expect these problems to be solved within 18-30 months wh...Jump to post
My guess is this could support 10-12,gates off the bat. Within a few years SEA is going to be short domestic gates and bussing passengers to the plane, which will add another layer of inconvenience. I think PAE could be a benefit to the region, but not with a 2 gate operation.Jump to post
if the Fed Reserve keeps raising interest rates, we may see more efforts by airlines to stretch out Capex and defer . Delta is trying to keep their Capex annual budget at about 50-60% of cash flow so for the most part they should be able to pay for the majority of their aircraft on order with cash....Jump to post
I'm surprised MEM traffic has declined as much as it has, even with the DL hub closure. You'd think new airlines would come in and seize the void. Is Memphis not growing as much as Nashville? Oh, and I have two questions about the Northwest/Delta hub at MEM. 1. How many destinations did it have at ...Jump to post
