How were the loads on the flights?


I'd say almost full if not completely full but I'm sure that's not a good indicator.

Fares were always much lower than AA on SJC-DFW, or even WN. So perhaps they didn't make much money on that route - if any.

Re: AS expands presence at DAL

With the exception of the A321NEO. I’d say the 175’s are the nicest/most comfortable planes in the AS fleet right now. It’s not like the CRJ. Agreed. The E175 is my favorite RJ if you can even call it that. I'm very sad to see SJC-DAL go as that is one route I fly a couple of times a year. I guess ...

Re: Snow at LAS?

According to Flightaware 165 flights got cancelled out of LAS. A friend of mine has been stuck there since last night. Her flight is getting further delayed now due to not having any or at least not enough de-icing equipment. That's what she is being told, no idea if that is actually the case.

Re: LAX and World Way congestion

One of the reasons for the current congestion issues is the construction at terminal 1.

Once you get past T1 traffic isn't that bad anymore throughout the rest of the terminals....
