Leveraging technology to reduce your interactions with humans. In other words, lower costs. That’s the only way this survives. I think he knows that but is spinning it as a positive. Lower costs and prevent an accumulation of jobs that require all the people expenses. Other airlines make you work t...Jump to post
You'd think that with the backlog of airplanes overflowing at the factory in Washington, that they'd rather delay the fuselages rather than airfreight them over there. Right lay off staff great ploy when the issues are with engine supplier. Those global suppliers in the chain need to get paid and h...Jump to post
Ahh, the ever-predicted downfall of the airlines in it's latest incarnation. Never factors in traffic, security issues, expense, delays, etc etc etc. It's like the space elevator...looks great on paper but falls apart as soon as you apply an ounce of logic to it.Jump to post

If Hawaiian bought them they could call them "Hawaii 5-0s"
I thought Airbus only bought the CSeries, not the entirety of BBD’s commercial line.Jump to post

Probably off topic, but does AS remove the old VX seats in these aircraft and replace with AS J and Y products? Absolutely ridiculous. Replacing a clearly superior product with a vastly inferior one. By "superior" you mean non-responsive touchscreens and those nasty, awkward keyboards all...Jump to post

I think that Germany will not react to that because when they asked the USA to block Trump as president because of being stupid they didn't react either. Because Germany has an official say in who can run for office in the United States? Last but not least, the new US ambassador in Berlin has alrea...Jump to post

In the 1990s, the leading U.S. global airline, by consensus, was American. In the early 2000s it was Continental. Uhh...was this author even alive during the 2000s?

This is getting ridiculous and needs to stop. If you can't leave home without your pet them perhaps you shouldn't leave home at all. The world is a scary place and your cat isn't going to save you.

Many of us heard this already but for the new eyes: B6/AS will merge eventually, so why waste time poaching each others respective coasts? Make love not war. $$ Uh huh.
