Looks like UA 100 arrived into Houston area same time as storm front yesterday ( 29DEC)

IAH does have some limited departures today. I am currently on UA 1631 (IAH-ORD) which was scheduled to depart at 7:50. We actually departed at 14:11. The LAS flight on the adjacent gate also departed around the same time. Someone mentioned renting a car and driving from Dallas to Houston. That’s n...Jump to post
I find it interesting that Phoenix is at no. 36 and Miami at no. 37. At first glance, you would think there would be far more traffic at Miami than Phoenix but I have never been to Phoenix and so I am not exactly sure what Phoenix has to offer. Is there a specific reason why Phoenix has more traffi...Jump to post
The 3 C's of Ohio are virtually identical in terms of GDP. They're #28, 29 and 30. Really? 2017 (latest data available; source: BEA.gov] 1. Cleveland: $212B 2. Cincinnati: $179B 3.

I'm not familiar with the airport, but looking at Google maps I'd say space is a reason. In order to have high speed exits, you need a decent amount of space between the runway and the parallel taxi way in order to allow the plane to slow down enough. This. The last 3 exits on the departure end of ...Jump to post
I find windows 10 to be far too system demanding. My old laptop originally had W8, granted it was a basic laptop just for using Office, but it can barely run W10 most days!

The rumor is that they are going to add DTW-HKG. Is this your rumor or from an actual source outside of the DTW/DL fan club?

No they may not be turning anyone away but they aren't aggressively searching for alternatives to grow the market hence making it easier for Delta to run it's monopoly in Detroit with little or no competition. Again that's all well and good if the airport wants to protect Delta's status here but in...Jump to post
ACI does as an aviation consultant you should be aware of that fact and Delta tells us every time in their press release that ATL is the busiest and biggest hub in the world so Delta publishes it too. https://airportscouncil.org/ I have no idea what you're getting at.

Interesting. Here's the link to the tweet I am talking about: https://twitter.com/DTWeetin/status/1118889128945422336 I zoomed into the picture they have and studied it fairly well and compared it to the master plan. This puts me under the impression that the FAA has scrapped plans for a new ATCT a...Jump to post
'Rankings'. I'll ask again because you've refused to answer in the past, who cares about rankings? If the concern is airport revenue then say that, but you seem obsessed with 'rankings' just for the sake of some mythical prestige.

I wonder if the FAA scrapped plans to put up a new tower, the one that is currently standing can not be fixed so its usable life is basically over due to the mold contamination. FAA spent $25M remediating mold 5 or so years ago when I worked there, basically gutted the place. Is it still a problem?...Jump to post
The reason is plane and simple the airport has no real desire to bring anyone in here that might have the abilty to impact Delta in a negative way but the joke is the passenger market that these carriers would create wouldn't fly Delta anyway because they are either driving to ORD or YYZ or they ca...Jump to post

With no departures, or can they depart 7? They can depart 17L/8/25.... Denver can do a lot of things. They can also land 16L/R and 35 L/R at the same time. It really just depends on the winds which usually cooperate most times to depart 3 runways at a time and land 3... If they are landing north, t...Jump to post
The PHX south complex runways 25L/R - 7L/R are far too close together to allow for “simo” parrallel approaches. To my knowledge, SFO is the only airport to allow parallel approaches on runways so close as it was grandfathered in when runway separation requirements increased. This is why most new ru...Jump to post
Thank you for the clarity. However, it still leaves a few things unanswered: 1. Why do some widebodies sometimes use inactive runways for takeoffs (like VS or HA aircraft taking off from 26R when no other airplane is using this runway) 2. How do they change the configs. I imagine it is easier to no...Jump to post
LAS has 4 configs. Config 1 in the default and most-frequently used due to typical prevailing winds. Depart 26R/19R/19L, land 26L/19R. 26L is the default turbojet runway, 19R is the offload. Bizjets/other GA typically get valet parked on 19R. Config 2 is land 1L/1R, depart 8L. Used with strong NE wi...Jump to post
And if this is true, does that mean that takeoffs can;t be using the 15s, cause if a plane is landing on 9, doesnt that basically take it directly over the 15s. Yes, when the 9 arrival is inside a certain point, the Takeoff Hold Lights activate on the 15s and effectively shut them down until the ar...Jump to post
9 is an offload runway on east flow when the arrivals are heavy. Affects departures off the 15s so it's usually done on the backside of the departure push.. On Thursday 27 was being used for departures of which I have not seen in a long time. At any rate seems as though the normal traffic patterns a...Jump to post

Excluding AF1, there are photos on another spotting site (can't remember which) of a UA 744 which was a 2002 BCS title game charter. It parked at C47 (judging from the angle of the photo), which makes sense as DL moved to C52-56 by then once the C extension opened. ATA also brought in multiple L-10...Jump to post
