^^ Hmm, could be naming the new Rams stadium the American Airlines stadium in Los Angeles Hey, why not? They already have an arena (Miami) and a center (Dallas), why not a stadium? Then they could have advertising showing the stadium with a 777 or 787 flying overhead on final to one of the 24s :mrg...Jump to post
My very first flight on a 737 was on PI. March 1976, CLT-FAY-ORF on a 732. It wasn't a happy occasion, as I was returning to college in Hampton, VA after burying my grandmother in her native North Carolina. It was a nice plane, IIRC, the front rows had a table of some sort with one set of seat facin...Jump to post
Has Aruba Airlines actually resumed AUA-MIA? FlightAware just shows the existing AA and Surinam flights. Also, Norwegian’s LGW-MIA flight operated with a EuroAtlantic 767 last night and arrived about 8 hours late.

Runway 10L/28R at FLL is apparently closed for repairs until October. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/article213455594.html Not sure when exactly it started, I just noticed today when I was at the Wal-Mart in Davie, which is right under the final approach to FLL, and everything was lined u...Jump to post
There hasn't been an airplane with as bad an omen attached to it as the 737 MAX. I sincerely hope that Boeing have indeed fixed the problem. I don't think anyone wants the 737 MAX to fail, and if you do, you are delusional. Boeing have invested too much into this airplane to just throw it away. If ...Jump to post
British Airways cancels Fort Lauderdale service eff September 8, 2019. Once DY switched their flight to MIA, I didn’t expect this one to last.

My first flight on the Queen of the Skies was in December 1973, SJU-JFK on American.

Looking at fr24.com, it seems that DY is once again running a Dreamliner (789) seven days a week on flights 7043/7044 from LGW. For awhile, they were using a Wamos Air A-330 every day except Saturday. Not sure if that was holiday related. I also wondered how the Saturday DY crews got to or from LGW,...Jump to post
N8319F - OAK to OAK.
Is this one of the ETOPS birds?
I wonder if we'll ever see new service of significance from PBI? FLL's rising costs and congestion doesn't seem to have slowed the airport - growth might be down but major service cuts haven't happened yet. PBI continues to struggle for service. It's so bad now I know many family and friends in Pal...Jump to post
Not with B6 feeding them they won't. Also keep in mind FLL is going to be down to one runway next year for an extended period of time. Perfect time for Norwegian to move. I hadn't heard about this. Will it be 10L/28R or 10R/28L? The good news is, it would simplify spotting at FLL. Like a few years ...Jump to post
There's enough of a premium market, I think, from Broward/Palm Beach, to fill a few BA flights a week to London, but I guess we'll see. I think Emirates is next to make the jump from FLL to MIA. Norwegian wasn't the first one either. Sunwing and Volaris both made the jump, too. Not with B6 feeding ...Jump to post
From ORD, the MD-80 flew just about every domestic route, if you go back to the 1980s. My father was flying ORD-CAK in the late 1980s, and it seemed that every AA flight was with an MD-80. From my trips out of ORD, I flew on MD-80s to SEA, PHX, YYC, LAS, DFW, IAH, STL, ATL, MCO, TPA, LGA, and BOS. ...Jump to post

Norwegian takes 10L-28R for the departure about 99% of the time, so unless that runway is closed for some reason, it most likely will use it. There's obviously no guarantee. I've even seen Emirates depart on the south runway, but I can not recall when I last saw Norwegian use it for departure. Than...Jump to post

Wow! Someone still flies the A340? Indeed. Surprisingly, there is a world outside of the US... over 140 still in service. The LH group has a good network in the US, good to see them expanding. Indeed. VS actually has them making regular appearances at JFK. MIA gets one as well, not sure if daily.Jump to post
I'm looking forward to an eventual WN diversion to JFK!
Of course, for that to happen, there would have to be issues at LGA, EWR and ISP. Not very likely, but one can dream
I thought flights were only going on sale in 2018 and the first flights wouldn't even take off until early 2019. I guess they are waiting for the MAX 8 to become ETOPS certified before starting.

It's been a slow but steady retreat from FLL by AA. In 2008 or 2009 flying to SJO, NAS, KIN etc were dropped. After the merger PHX was first dropped to a single daily then dropped outright.
