Yeah JetMagic, I forgot about them. Pretty close resemblance. So how many airlines have had three liveries in operation at the same time ? Delta Air Lines famously had three at once (Ron Allen, Song, and Wavy Gravy. Around 2006 when I was based in JFK, I had seen all of them at once along with a fe...Jump to post
What they really should've done was refitted them almost five years ago when they announced the mega-refresh. It's ridiculous that his has gone on for so long. LA and DL have 767s I'd actually seek out over the 787/777.Jump to post
US drove LH out of CLT before on the FRA route. However, the Lufthansa flight is always busy. It goes out with a good load and, from what I understand, a good mix of O/D and connections, many of which continue on to the Subcontinent. I think that LH will continue to offer one flight to CLT, at leas...Jump to post
CLT gets some more F9 service, including new TPA. I rarely see flights that don't have a completely full gate area as of right now, regardless of the destination.
Also, has anyone seen GDL-CLT/ABQ loaded to GDS or is it just on Volaris.com right now?

I was asking because we were told by EXPERTS on here that CLT would be shrunk/right-sized Those so called “experts” on here having been predicting the dooms day of the CLT for as long as I could remember.

https://www.flyertalk.com/articles/american-airlines-has-added-close-to-50-new-routes-in-the-last-three-months-alone.html One of the things I’d like to point out is that for the majority of these routes, they fall into the connecting-the-dots category, not the sexy interesting routes (with a couple...Jump to post
I'd love to see them do a LHR-BOG-PTY-LHR triangle, eventually serving them nonstop. I think upper South America, tied into the local LA network, is a hole that could be filled nicely and profitably. They may need to go nonstop to BOG due to AV competition, however.Jump to post
I mean the Italians don’t seem to be All that knowledgeable about the workings of the aviation industry but this one isn’t toad far out of line as it may appear.

Islip was also loaded as Saturday only as well,right? Maybe be AA’s new way for adding dots to CLT.Jump to post
Just a little FYI-the vast majority of people won’t know a flight-especially a new one-by the numbers. Most people wouldn’t know, for example, that LH 428/429 is MUC-CLT, a route that has been around for years, but someone might be able to give input if your thread contained the routing.Jump to post
Fantastic news for CLT!! Twice weekly service from a low cost airline that flies to US destinations like Fresno is “fantastic news”??? Wow, there must be even less going on in Charlotte than I thought. It's "fantastic" because CLT needs all the competition that could come in and give AA a...Jump to post
I am also a cello parent :) a few years ago I took it as it’s own passenger “Cello Surname” and booked over the AAdvantage support line.

Flying out of MIA it’s often over water, the Atlantic going North or the Gulf going West. Often the WiFi won’t kick in over water. The time the flight hits land it’s too late to stream a movie. That’s a poor implementation then. The movies are stored on the plane, so you should be able to stream a ...Jump to post

Delta has been serving Reykjavík Keflavík for a while now. What are the odds American (from JFK/PHL) or United (from EWR) are taking a look at Iceland service?
Correct me if I am wrong, but these markets don’t even need a 757, but a 319/321/73X could do it, right?
Good luck but I wonder how the 145 experiment will go over. Drastically different and disconnected from the rest of the networkJump to post
US-NW is interesting. This two combined with AS to feed a potential SEA gateway would have been fascinating (although I admit the current situation for both is better) I think that no matter how much we discuss all this, though, the mergers all worked out well for all parties involved.

SBA isn't "unserved". It gets a daily A319.
Will frequencies go down to their current destinations as a result of this?
Even with high capacity 767s that is a huge jump in capaz.
A) does the MAT have space for all of them?
B) Even if they move, can b take all of AA’a flights?
C) Would a new AC come out of this?

Well rats. No 3 cut from Charlotte so far. (IAD, CLE, ISP) I’m curious I see how how AUS and PVD do now... Wait, this is a series of cuts at CLT from F9? If so, then it's likely due to space at CLT. Not a series. IAD was one of the original routes from CLT. I believe at the time it was TTN IAD and ...Jump to post
More like pulled back to start new routes at SFO/other CA airports. BUR and AUS have gone mainline though. Cutbacks are related to the Embraer 175. There were multiple cuts last OAG report too and all were operated with the E175. E175 routes are being cut due to Horizon's pilot/crew shortage. Major...Jump to post
HUH. Kind of surprised they didn’t have a route to LED before. They can probably get an s7 codeshares for a handful of extra Pax on this route.Jump to post
I would say the focus should be more on the 30' pitch in Y than the IFE. No matter how you look at what AA is doing it is not good for the pax. They are winning in the race to the bottom of the big 3. And do not forget a large chunk of the fleet has no power in the seats for those who do not charge...Jump to post
