Should be interesting to see what Texas Central Railway HSR does to DAL-HOU, DAL-CLL, and HOU-CLL, when it opens in 2026.
Project cost is $20B for a 400 km line, which works out to $50M/km.
Flight from Nola? Probably Cajun blackened phone. Turducken is better.Jump to post

Duct taping any passenger to a seat, as happened on F9 last week, and now on AA this week seems like a huge liability issue. What happens in the event of an emergency evacuation if crew can't get the tape removed in time and the passenger is stuck? Or the passenger vomits (assuming tape over mouth)...Jump to post

Reminds me of my childhood, living on a hill. Our home was uphill from the local doctor — a Radiologist. When he was coming home, and was at the top of the hill, he’d turn off the engine and coast down the street. In summertime when we played outside on the street, he ran silent and frequently honke...Jump to post
Regardless of the cause, it's still creepy. This is creepy for you? A piece of machinery making a sound is creepy for you? Wow… I know, it sounds like I’m a NIMBY. I’m actually a huge plane enthusiast and I look forward to my first ride on the A220. The dogs in my neighborhood still bark when the A...Jump to post
I could be wrong but doesn’t the gate cap expire in 2024 ? The clause the requires WN to surrender a gate at DAL for every gate they add at any other Dallas / Fort Worth area airport expires in 2024 but not the overall DAL 20 gate cap. Wish someone would sue over that gate cap. I could be wrong but...Jump to post
The new wing proved to be more tricky to integrate. There were teething troubles with engine icing and flutter. Looking back building on the -400 for some more years would have been the better choice. The 747-8 did not pair well with the 787 again with operators like the 767 and the 747-400 had don...Jump to post
This all seems fair. We’d never be able to do this in the United States. Many miles of track would need to be upgraded and much more financial support given to Amtrak. Americans also think they have a right to fly anywhere they please. That said, I’ve often enjoyed the TGV from Lyon into Paris and ...Jump to post
Carbon from the winemaking process is five times more concentrated than planes and cars. A litre of juice produces 60 litres of carbon dioxide. Why aren't we trapping it? “A single bottle of wine contains 80g of carbon dioxide. Source: vinex.market, Moritz Buehner, 8/1/12. You are taking that quote...Jump to post

be more viable since more people would want to travel to New York than Philadelphia. Thanks 99% of passengers don't care where they change planes. Exactly. The 99% are shopping price. A-Netters are the 1% and shop a flight based on airline, aircraft and how many extra stops/connections that we can ...Jump to post
Excellent report, thanks for sharing.
I've often wondered, if there were an emergency, and one had to evacuate by slide from the upper deck, would your pants spontaneously catch fire by the time you reached the bottom of the slide?
I’ve done a pretty good job of avoiding the news. The stress has just melted away.Jump to post
Our childhood toys can leave impressions that last a lifetime. I still remember my Johnny Express truck. Glad they were able to reunite the child with Buzz.Jump to post
WSJ just today had a story about how COVID has changed NYC in 2020.

Agreed if DFW has a very loyal flyer base there they would have never shut the hub down. If you are headed east Delta has a very useful network for DFW but otherwise no. DFW has the 3rd biggest skymiles members outside of hubs, behind only BNA and MCI. DFW has a much bigger population than BNA and ...Jump to post
