Could Delta Order 737 MAX?

According to Reuters, Boeing has had discussions with Delta Air Lines to take up to 40 Boeing already-built 737 MAX aircraft, no doubt at a HUGE discount.

It looks like it's not actually happening. The airline and the flight attendants union have seemingly come to an agreement.

Re: Best Airline Ads

Are you talking about currently, or of all time? My all-time favorite is an old LAN Chile ad from the early 90s that had the children of Chile inviting people to their country. They show you all of Chile (including Easter Island) in sixty seconds. It's been my inspiration for visiting Chile one day....

Re: Do airlines discriminate based on routes?

When reading the topic, I thought the topic author meant if airlines treated passengers a certain way depending on the route. I used to see this a lot at American Airlines when they used to fly their 4-5 daily A300s from JFK to SDQ or SJU. I even heard some AA employees at JFK refer to these flights...

Re: Enhanced Security for Inbound Flights to USA Starts Thursday

What is the current process like? I'm not familiar with what the questions of this "interview" fellow A.net members are alluding to here. Well, this was my experience returning home from Brussels in March. The interview took about 1-2 minutes. They really had the perfect guy for the job a...

Re: LATVIA: A Two Headed Dog, Rapid Detox and a Naked Polar Plunge!

Fantastic trip report! Brought back so many memories of Riga, a city that was a VERY pleasant surprise on my European backpacking run after college.

One question for you: What app is that you're using to check on flights?

I've seen a different version in which they run through the safety video in Spanish, then dubbed over in English:

Re: Brazil to allow full foreign airline ownership

Also, in an attempt to boost tourism, the Brazilian government will start issuing e-visas for US, Canada, Australia and Japan citizens. The whole process will be made online allowing visas to be issued in 48 hours. I don't think it would matter how fast I'm able to get a Brazilian visa if I still h...

Re: Norway and Sweden begin to divest shares in SAS

The article suggests that the eventual goal of Norway and Sweden is to see the airline in private hands, but there is little information about whether this is also the intention of the Danish Government, which did not take part in this round of divestment. Isn't SAS essentially "Air Copenhagen...

Re: Garuda Indonesia is planing Jakarta - LAX in 2017

I believe Garuda is planning to fly CGK-NRT-LAX routing and they are also considering service NYC. I am guessing JFK would be there preferred destination. The reason for NRT is ability to sell seats between NRT and LAX The only way I could see that JFK could work would be for them to codeshare with...
