I have a question but im not sure if it was asked in this thread and I don't really have the time to look. but with the rebranding didn't that kill off metrojet? or was metrojet a product of the merger? I flew them once out of TPA as a kid, and thought the red paintjob was pretty snazzy.Jump to post
You could say the same thing for America West (another 9/11 govt loan guarantee recipient) and United (a 3-time loser in the same program). http://www.nbcnews.com/id/5316334/ns/business-us_business/t/loan-guarantee-united-airlines-again-denied/#.XlrcQKhKiUk Or Continental, who needed two bankruptci...Jump to post
Where are the F9 pilots on here?? Remember when you chose Republic over them and they ran you out of your own hub? How did that work out for you a decade later?

Looks like the IAD-TPA 752 is only running on Tuesdays? Excited to see the UA 772 at TPA. I've lived in TPA since 2013 and I believe this is the first scheduled domestic widebody service since I've lived here? too bad you missed the days of DL 767s! I used to sit in a tug by the ground vehicle fuel...Jump to post
Odd that AA’s JFK adds are just for April. PANYNJ “use ‘em or lose ‘em” ultimatum I wonder? For UA: -IAD-SRQ, maybe UA finally here the “it’s not fair” cries that SRQ had gained year-round IAD service, while MIA doesn’t, lol. -ORD-SBN, that’s some crazy frequency increases. Overall though a quiet w...Jump to post
not to mention SFB is in the middle of nowhere. the first time I went to SFB there was nothing around the airport, I couldn't believe there was an airport there, of course that was the day they sent space shuttle atlantis up the final time (cant remember the year 2010?) it could be built up now, but...Jump to post
my biggest beef with the media is when they say stuff like "we were on the runway for so and so hours" when if fact they were on a ramp or taxi way. I wish they would use the correct terminology even though most people don't know the difference between a ramp and runway.Jump to post
best bet would be to track it on fligtradar24. Eva flies from LAX/SFO/SEA(?)/ORD(?) to Taipei. So you probably wont know until the day before it flies. I wish I would have known about FR24 when I was trying to hitch a ride on Shamu on WN.Jump to post
Well, since we are playing this game, these two confuse the hell out of me: Why serve PIE when you already serve TPA? 15-20 miles Why serve PGD when you already serve RSW? 30 miles IIRC F9 did serve PIE and TPA at the same time. I know their PIE service did not last long at all. I remember dropping...Jump to post

Your comment makes zero sense. Asheville is very much its own market. But why announce in AVL when you can get those folks to drive to you with you low fares. It's only like an hourish drive Unless F9 offers a unique destination, greater frequency, or dramatically lower fares than what G4 (and to a...Jump to post
Somebody posted in the AVL forum that they were planning on announcing next week - which seems right up F9’s alley You beat me to it. I would love to see F9 here.

1.6 million pax at Asheville regional Airport. 7 new routes last year, and with G4's new routes announced last week, the new report on the TV states that there will be more announced next week.

Looks like G4 is realizing the gem AVL is. I’m glad to see them expand
I would loved to see G4 offer more west coast services from PIE. TZ used to fly to LAX/LAS with thru service to Hawaii. Southeast Airlines, and Sunjet International flew to LAS from PIE, im not sure how successful they were, given not many people ever heard of those airlines before.Jump to post
will NK grow AVL? They flew to TPA MCO and FLL only, I cant remember if they cut TPA and FLL, seems like all they serve now is MCO. Would love it if they added LAS ORD and maybe somewhere on the west coast. If G4 can make DEN-AVL work, I can see a west coast flight from AVL work. Not a big NK fan, ...Jump to post
With recent expansion made under the new VP of network planning, it's clear that NK is essentially being re-created into AirTran 2.0, a lot of what they've been doing in terms of customer service and amenities is matching AirTran. not to mention, their CEO is our old FL Boss. Double check the Spiri...Jump to post
Im going to the grand opening on Wednesday. I'm told the new hangar will hold 8 738's. I'm surprised they're building one in HOU instead of at DAL, maybe there's no room to build a hangar at DAL? Anyone else going to attend the opening ceremonies at 1400?

Is a coin really likely to cause a problem, given the turkeys and whatnot that are thrown into engines?

Wouldn’t the extra boarding door offset the weight to the port side? Wouldn’t that affect the symmetry of the fuselage? I always thought thought a boarding door was always exact opposite each other the counter weight the other.Jump to post

PIE Has WG G4 SY. I love SRQ I used to non rev on FL all the time of flights to/From TPA were booked. It’s a nice small airport. I like it better then PIE since it has jetbridges at all the gates.

I think the mods Should change the name
of the thread to the SRQ thread as 90% of the posts are related to SRQ and ignoring PIE/RSW/TPA/ZPH/LAL.

The 717s aren't gonna go anywhere for a while. Most of them aren't that old and there's plenty of A319/738/A320s that are older than the 717s in the fleet, and they all just got a big overhaul.
