I find the weird fear of the female form in the US rather odd. I'm a Ussian and I encourage displays of the female form! Now my caution would be that there were probably 7-10 other people similarly dressed sitting in her seat since that seat was cleaned. Reason why I don't wear shorts on an aircraf...Jump to post
In the US at least, if a CEO or other corporate official was bad-mouthing his own company, he'd be in breach of his duties and should be shown the door. Larger shareholders would hire a hit man.

Boeing and DL never had a great relationship and DL were traditionally a Douglas customer. They've had big Boeing orders in the past (see recently completed 737 order) but these days Boeing don't offer anything can't be matched in some degree by Airbus.

The reason ORD-ATH is flown from Chicago is the LARGE Greek population in Chicago. PHL-ATH is a legacy US Airways route. That’s correct. Chicago/Illinois has the 3rd largest Greek population in the U.S., after NY/California. https://thegreekobserver.com/greece/travel/article/59317/american-airlines...Jump to post
Its about time ICT got more service than just DFW & ORD. PHX was served with CRJs back in the America West days, but I think its time ICT got both a year-round PHX flight and possibly 2x flights to CLT. I'd also like to see at least a 1x MHK-CLT for military connections. There is a ton of traff...Jump to post

Conspiracy theory: Could KLM use the A380s? No. I think this has been categorically ruled out. KL has fairly dense 77Ws and does not need space for F-class or for W-class because it does not offer those products.

Saw on the DFW Spotters FB page that repeats what we all knew, last MadDog out of Diff-Dubya will be on 4 September. What I didn't know is that it'll be going to ORD, and according to the post it's already sold out--AA80 is the flight number, arriving from CLE as AA250.Jump to post

Of course. It's Economics 101. Pepsi and Coke are another classic example.

Most of the traffic is GA (including one exec jet flying from Sao Paulo nonstop!), however UA seems to have a few more mainline than usual from DEN and ORD, and one of AA's CLT runs is being flown by an A320.
JetBlue has a flight in from San Jose, wonder what gate it'll use.

I think the answer would be found if people would list the aircraft and situation that requires more than 10,000 ft of runway. I don't think the list is that long... which explains the reason.

is it possible that DL would order 797s in order to set the configs in stone so that UA AA WN would be forced to settle? Or if WN sez 'I'll buy 350 frames, and you can close down the 737 line for good--but we want 175 797-7.5 and 175 797-8.5', would Boeing plump for that?Jump to post
