Or even reduces service, why is the A-net consensus always that they airline somehow failed instead of "that market is just not there yet"? If the market isn't there yet then the route shouldn't have been started yet. So failure would be an appropriate term. And seriously if you were a CE...Jump to post

According to Boeing and Airbus websites, the A350 has more range than the 787. 787-9 has a range of 14,100km while the A350-900 has 15,000km and the A350-1000 has a range of 15,557km. So why is it that the 787 is praised as a game changing aircraft that opens up the ability for ultra long routes (s...Jump to post
At the airline I worked at, post-9/11 cockpit doors, it was company policy to always have two crew members in the cockpit purely for the reason of should the remaining pilot on the flight deck become incapacitated, there would be someone there to open the door for the other pilot. In fact, pilot su...Jump to post
And in Europe there are lots of former military airfields built for WW2 or Cold War requirements, some of which host general aviation, air cargo, or limited scheduled flights. It isn't so much that someone said "let's build a brand new airfield for our small town", rather "let's use ...Jump to post
Apologize, I was a bit lazy on that post. Did the research, it varies from 85 to 115 minutes depending what US airport it is. Pretty quick compared to legacies long haul acft.

This is a classic example of why we have lawyers. No, it is a classic example of how lawyers justify their existance. Simple common sense tells us that you cannot hold back an item that belongs to a third party to enforce a payment which i not owed by that third Party. My guess would be that very l...Jump to post

It sounds more like they're holding back more desirable (window/aisle) seats for those willing to pay. Exactly. Why should someone that doesn't care where they sit (and wishes to save money) subsidize a couple that wishes to sit together? If this was flipped around, and Ryanair provided a basic eco...Jump to post
Not really. They have no scheduled 744 service at MSP and haven't for a while, whereas DTW is ostensibly the base of operations for all of the 744 fleet. DTW almost certainly has the better prepared mechanics, facilities, equipment, and parts to deal with the 744 specifically. If they needed to swa...Jump to post
