It's sad to see so many young controllers lose their opportunity. Some trainees who were let go were weeks away from certification. It's unclear if they'll have another opportunity. With so many fewer flights expected over the next 2-3 years, how did you expect this to unfold, really? Well, given t...Jump to post

I like it, to be honest! I do think the old livery looks better, however, it is very cool to see Pacific Airlines go back to their roots. I did like the original livery that was painted on a few 737s, though most aircraft wore either albino liveries or hybrids like U-Land Airways colors during the P...Jump to post
Very interesting. MIA could be served by any number of markets, but I'd expect OAK\SJC for sure for PSP, as well as perhaps DEN and maybe a few others. Bay Area to PSP traffic is very heavy, and SJC and OAK are definitely wide open markets right now on that route. I'd be surprised to see WN join in ...Jump to post
Personally, I've read enough over the years from different sources to gather that CHS is cutting corners on 787 production. Are they going to crash? No reason to believe so, but that doesn't mean they won't go tech more often and have other issues beyond the scope of normalcy airlines have come to e...Jump to post
I thought it would be funny if they named it "Yankee" instead, but I suppose that would just lead to more controversy. I never looked at "Dixie" as political, I always thought it was one of those cool little things in aviation that ATL uses "Dixie" instead of "Delt...Jump to post

A few planes were stored at DFW the other day, but the ones at AFW are gone, and my friend's flying there don't think the furloughs will last too long as once people feel safe to fly again and are back to work with steady income, the LCCs will bounce back way before the business travel returns for t...Jump to post
Seem to be handled fine, one question though, why not just declare her ticked void? She decided not to travel, her choice, not the fault of the airline.

Sit where you are assigned. If the man cannot sit next to a woman and it wasn't voluntarily accommodated, he is the one coming up with new demands and should leave the plane. As a father of daughters, facilitating this discrimination must end. This isn't KLM's fault. This shouldn't be left to crews...Jump to post
If jetBlue wants to compete on SFO-LAX, they'll have to have more than the 2 frequencies they were down to on SFO-LGB pre-pandemic. IIRC, jetBlue had 5x LGB at it's peak with E190s, and 4x with A320s or something close to that. In the next 5 years, I could see a return of SFO-LAS, as the previous fl...Jump to post
Turns out DFW is just suspended until September and not eliminated, so they aren't leaving. What I read about that suspension before the pandemic was AA was dropping DFW-OAK because of a lack of 737MAXs and then with PHX being dropped I thought that was it. But they'll be back. Whatever you're seei...Jump to post
AA and DL have always kind of come and gone at OAK. Will add a few flights in an up economy and then gone again when things turn south. UA used to have some presence, but consolidated at SFO, back in the Shuttle by United days had a lot of flights to LA and at one time a big maintenance facility. W...Jump to post
Not sure what your premise actually is: You claim AA can't make OAK work, but then immediately describe a service that AA operates at OAK; having chosen to continue offering it despite the worst downturn in aviation history.... The post is misleading, American did indeed yet again pull out of OAK. ...Jump to post
I think those of you in support of this are thinking like angry consumers and not informed airline enthusiasts.

They've served STT on and off over the years. For a while, STT was served on an MSP-SJU-STT-SJU-MSP route on Saturdays in the 727 days.

With Delta, it doesn't stay off. (I don't have recent experience with every AVOD system in the fleet.)
I don't get the issue a lot of you have with this. If you don't want seatback IFE; turn it off.

The mentioned 747s that are in the US at the moment, are those in LAX or already stored in VCV or MHV?
I will attempt to get down to MHV for the QF 747 arrival in July and the A380s as well if they end up there.
LAX-LAS was available for sale on HA without continuing to/from HNL.

Very common these days for planes to get normally rare or non-existent direct routings. A Gulfstream left HWD for Hawaii the other day and got a left turn straight out towards Hawaii climbing right across the SFO finals. Normally, that would never happen in broad daylight, but these are unusual times.Jump to post
Of course it is possible, but I would be absolutely shocked if HA were to do this rather than codeshares. The only tag ons I can recall with Hawaiian were 2x daily LAS-LAX with DC-10s back in the day which I don't think they even sold tickets on, otherwise Hawaiian has not been a fan of that kind of...Jump to post

There was a gap between the 727s leaving and the A320s or 757s starting, as in 1998/1999 the only Northwest narrowbody service in Asia was in the form of Shorts 360s from GUM painted up in Airlink colors.
