UA neither controls nor manages AV. In fact, they specifically put Efromovich's stake in AV under the former TACA owner's control to avoid this problem. That may not be correct. Control, as used in contracts, is typically a defined term that can be inferred solely by ownership. Manage would the &qu...Jump to post
The competing A220 orders have been small. 55 vs. 2, yet are enough to help sell for the next 12 months. Embraer cannot give up and wine about being a victim. Get back in the ring and sell!

No one has mentioned the park across from the In-N-Out, Imperial Hill and the patio at the Proud Bird Restaurant by LAX.

Apparently, AA is going to eliminate the oversize bag fee for sports and music equipment, as long as it fits in the weight limits.

It might be worth it, if only to get one of the exit rows and/or the 2 vs 3 seats sections.Jump to post
Best: All things associated with flying. From going to the airport, checking in, getting past security, spotting before boarding.... you get the idea.
Worst: Leaving the airport.
Once these facilities come online, I could see things working out something like this: T1 (including new Concourse 0): WN (international arrivals still at TBIT?), B6, NK, F9, G4, SY T2+T3+North TBIT: DL + international partners T4+T5+South TBIT: AA + international partners T6: AS, HA T7+T8+T9: UA +...Jump to post

As long as the flight crew gets plenty of rest before flying this route I don't see an issue. I wonder if the same crews are assigned to this flight day in and day out?

My predictions for focus cities: PVD CLE or BKL RIC AUS MKE Something near LA or SAN (Carlsbad or ONT???)

Keep that 321neo away from MIA. It looks like a true "slave ship." Maybe with 20F I'll be able to clear the upgrade list.

Yup that's Dougie at his best. Which is why US will be flying the 788s to places like CUN. Because they can no longer use them for LHR and the like. That's not the point. AA is using 788 to China and Eastern Europe. Hardly places that need 28J, especially when they're uncomfortable Zodiac Concept D...Jump to post
My guess is seasonal capacity. It looks as though they upgauged one of the A321 DFW-LAS-DFW flights to a 788 over the holiday season. As well as the 7 am departure out of ORD.

Why does Delta get so much credit, only because they offer PTVs?

Whichever airline flew that route with a 4 engine turboprop was what I was on. Late afternoon / evening departure. My guess would be Capital Airlines on a Viscount 744/745D.

February of 1962. Continental Airlines. Idlewild (IDL) to General Billy Mitchell Field (MKE).

I don't see WN coming into Madison as they also offer service just down the road at MKE. I also thought that WN liked to enter a market with a bit bigger of a bang than one or two new routes.

A question: Could the marijuana smoke get into the cabin air and potentially impair the pilots, crew and passengers?
