I wonder if those reviews and resulting schedule changes (or gauge changes) are done quarterly or monthly. With the end of PSP support,traffic falling seasonally and due to Delta Covid, this might be new territory for the majors. Maybe we'll see a migration to the ULCC model of quicker schedule cha...Jump to post

While there's no doubt about the dreadful experience with Spirit the past week, it is important to realize the reason behind the shit show before randomly tossing out words about not trusting the airline anymore. In fact, Spirit was operating at normal before this operational challenge and is curre...Jump to post
Interesting, the Continental and United EWR base covers all three airports I doubt UAL pilots would trade contracts. I doubt my B6 pilot friends would want much of the UAL pilot contract either, least of which being United's airport standby provision. Who knew there was an airline outside the regio...Jump to post
I think they should look at the 900 instead. It still sold reasonably and has good ASM costs. The 700 didn't sell at all for the last 8 years even while still available. Lufthansa had theirs for sale, less than 10 years old, well overhauled and most ended up scrapped because almost noone wanted the...Jump to post

I would think JFK-JNB would be a good option - particularly with SA struggling, if not on the ropes already. UA is already flying EWR-JNB. I think we all know that already. If you already knew that, then it would be pretty obvious ATL would be a better option for that flight, considering the massiv...Jump to post
Makes sense, triangle routes will be less and less attractive as things go back to normal, especially if competitors go for non-stop. I wonder what the numbers look like for the A350 then, its really a testament to the aircraft's capabilities if it can perform duties that were once exclusive to the...Jump to post
[threeid][/threeid] Is this a B6 thread or a La Compagnie thread? I don't think United, with its 2 EWR-TLV flights and non stop to MXP is worried. La Compagnie can take the bottom feeders. La Compagnie will take the top feeders, not the bottom ones. Top feeder? Who is going to pay a premium to stop ...Jump to post
As a passenger, I am all for it. Why would any sane passenger be for this? Do you like the idea of degraded safety margins in the name of higher corporate profit margins? I honestly do not see it as a degraded safety margin. While the pilot unions might want to sell you that line, it just isn’t the...Jump to post

If United really needs aircraft in the short run, it would indeed be surprising if United wouldn't just order more 787's instead of adding to their fleet complexity by actually taking any A350's. A350 as a lifeline?? Anybody who can pay can get any new widebody in production immediately if they wan...Jump to post
Does anybody think united may delay Boston to london to 2022 because JetBlue is doing 2022 now? delay? its never been announced, so technically no delay?! But for me, I never expected this route in 2021 and I really don't expect this route in 2022 either. You must have missed it because United defi...Jump to post

I’m amazed the baby was able to survive for 3 more hours after being born in an airplane. Fantastic work and amazing job by the doctor and nurses.

Regarding the lounge situation - UA flyers are used to sub-optimal lounges at EWR and probably don't expect much. I'm assuming that the folks flying J out of JFK on UA are there for network reasons, e.g. UA or *A loyal. I can't imagine a lounge would materially impact the purchase decision. That sa...Jump to post

[threeid][/threeid] AA is running bigger RJs st SJT and ABI on some runs so they are not actually "barely supporting" service. Having a second choice is harder but both SJT and ABI, for example, supported DL for years with the DFW hub. 1.2 million over two years for "possible" gu...Jump to post

N439UA (Airbus A320) entered GYR for storage this afternoon.
N69020 (Boeing 777-200ER) is scheduled to leave ROW on Saturday morning. It will eventually end up in XMN for heavy maintenance.
Looks like UA is trying to compete with the F9, NK, and G4's of the world, doing point-to-point flying. At first I thought this was about CLE, but reading the UA press release, its more about Hilton Head and/or Myrtle Beach, SC--we just benefit from this new UA strategy. Those two little places are...Jump to post
I doubt United is just throwing darts at a board here. They have access to travel and demand data from these cities and they’re using that to try to fill some planes that would otherwise be parked or flying empty. Smart move on United’s part. Bravo! The one problem with travel demand data: it is no...Jump to post

There’s only one commercial operator currently flying into ASE. All of the United, American and former Delta flights are operated by Skywest.

If you turn the tiller too far, it will unscrew right off the strut. It's not possible to "unscrew" the nose wheel by tiller movement. There is a mechanical stop on the tiller, the nose wheel movement is limited. No authority would certify an aircraft that could suffer a nose gear collaps...Jump to post
That looks really nice. But not being delivered until September 2022 seems like any awfully long time to sit around. instead of keeping it in storage, cant boeing sell this aircraft now to someone else, and produce the hawaiian 787 closer to the delivery time? probably a stupid question although no...Jump to post
While having such conveniences might be nice, is it necessary? Worth the expense?

I understand that a flight attendant saved the day by noticing a foot of snow on one wing prior to takeoff. Everytime that I have been on a flight in snowy weather, a pilot always does a wing inspection prior to takeoff. I thought that this was a requirement, not an option. Good job by the flight a...Jump to post
This seems awfully fishy...a bunch of people with ladders and long extension brushes stroll onto the tarmac, climb up on top of a plane and have time to open up paint cans and apply to the aircraft before any security personnel show up?

Damn, Spirit is tearing it up in CLE. Honestly surprised that CLE-EWR is doing so well for them, seeing as it was a post-pandemic add. It seems like the only new routes started in the pandemic that have done decently are ones with a leisure destination on at least one end. Never thought I’d see Spi...Jump to post
