Let's not confuse "food" with "meals". I suspect this will be nothing more than a BOB product offering, and not meal service for each and every pax. Kelly recently hinted of new revenue streams, I could imagine this is it. Pre-packaged sandwiches and bistro snacks require zero p...Jump to post
WN is hosting an event in HNL on August 7 hopefully we will get an update or announcement on the flight schedule for Hawaii. That's promising news. Do you have any further details about what type of an event it is? Press conference? Time? It's a travel industry event called "A Southwest Talk S...Jump to post
Could they have used one of the new boarding machines at TBIT that scan your face? Perhaps that failed?Jump to post
Do we know the tail numbers of the two new 777s?Jump to post
Any updates on this new visual identity?Jump to post
Years ago, WN brought up the topic. They said that SD, ND, WY, MT all represented at or below 1% of all air traffic in the US, and that they were ok to give up that 1% to focus on bigger things. That was around 2005.Jump to post
I heard that there's an ETOPS rule stating that engines must have 90 minutes to cool down after an ETOPS flight. Is this true? If so, would that affect an interisland tag (OAK-HNL-KOA-OAK)?Jump to post

I see it boarding often and it definitely looks full. Lots of connections. No numbers to support it.Jump to post
UA made public desires a few years ago to fly the 787 SFO-MNL, but nothing ever came out of it.Jump to post
There's an evidence photo on Flyertalk, a Hawaiian theme decoration at LAX gate 18 podium.

I wonder if the MAX delivery was the big announcement.[/quote] I don't think so. There's no secret with the MAX. They're visible up at Boeing, we know they start on Oct 1st, etc. It has to be delivered between now and then, so no real surprise. Hearing that something will be at the October company e...Jump to post
Obviously the goal is to put the hurt on Alaska in California due to the VX/AS merger, but are these flights just knee jerk reactions (especially SJD out of SMF)? If WN does "beat" Alaska, will these flights go away? Seems like if the market was there, WN would have added these routes in t...Jump to post

This route is now bookable on WN. Starts November 5th. 12:35-15:25 FLL-PLS 16:20-17:15 PLS-FLL Allows absolutely no chance for the west coast to connect to PLS. WN desperately needs a West Coast to Florida nonstop and redeye. Nobody wants to go West Coast, stop, change planes, overnight, then conne...Jump to post
