When "go!" arrived in the islands years ago, after the demise of Aloha, the locals were happy that competition was there, offering lower prices. Your history is backwards. go! began service in June 2006. Aloha went out of business in March 2008, largely because of the undercutting done by...Jump to post
Bought the airline, parked the planes, laid off the employees, and closed the hubs. How in the hell this got past regulators is still beyond me. Letting the company die a natural death and get liquidated would have been kinder.Jump to post
MD-11s have been flying nearly 30 years. The safety data speak for themselves. Yes, it does. The MD-11 has by far the worst safety record of any large airliner introduced since the mid 80s with the exception of the MAX. http://www.airsafe.com/events/models/rate_mod.htm The 737 is a large airliner n...Jump to post

They can barely keep their domestic operation together. Add widebodies to the mix and they'll be dead in less than 3 years.Jump to post

The 767 is still being produced, the 757 is not. The 767 has outsold the 757 by nearly 200 units. Why does everyone still act like the 757 is god's gift to aviation?Jump to post
It’s supposed to enter into service in 2025. Which Boeing insider told you that? :-) Because they haven't even launched the type yet... so any prognostications like that are more rumors and wishful thinking. I am an insider. That’s who told me that. Awfully nice to be able to hide behind unverifiab...Jump to post
I think HA is in a lot of trouble. I’m sure everyone in Hawaii remembers what go! did to Aloha in similar circumstances, and it’s a safe bet there are very few WN loyalists amongst the locals. The tourists (well, the cheap ones) won’t care but the locals just might not look kindly on what WN is try...Jump to post

I just flew past the old El Toro airport today on my way to San Diego. I thought, what a shame they couldn’t (or wouldn’t) relocate SNA there. It would have solved a lot of problems. What problems would it have solved? It would’ve created more problems; at best, it would it have pushed the noise fu...Jump to post
People can wish this will go away quickly, but the reality is that investigations into the FAA, the MAX's certification, Boeing's engineering of MCAS as well as the crashes themselves are going to drag on for years. All the Boeing cheerleaders are missing the biggest factor of all. The MEDIA. Do yo...Jump to post

You can thank Alaska Airlines for delaying start of construction of the new IAF, if anybody has forgotten. http://old.seattletimes.com/html/businesstechnology/2025558052_seatacgrowthxml.html And you can thank DL for stabbing AS in the back, invading SEA, and congesting the airport beyond its limits...Jump to post
All carriers should lock all the seats regardless. It’s a d*** move to the person behind you and doesn’t provide enough actual recline to be of any use. Oh, and it’s one more thing to breakJump to post
Also, can someone photoshop the B787-10 in the Saul Bass colors?

The curfew violations are ridiculous and unconstitutional. Shame on big government for restricting free commerce. Where in the constitution does it forbid municipalities from placing such restrictions? It seems that the term “unconstitutional” is this century’s version of calling someone a communis...Jump to post
B6 struggling to keep on top of domestic ops, about to launch into an ultra-congested TATL market where LCCs are already floundering, and thinks they can afford widebodies? Sure, might as well order A380s and sell seats for $39, the end result will be the same regardless of what they fly.Jump to post
They've operated the 200, 300, 500, 700, 800, MAX 8, and soon MAX 7. As well as the small 727 fleet leased from Braniff. They also operated a few Super 80 when they acquired Muse Air.... way way back in the 80's And the 717 for AirTran... people tend to forget this. WN never operated the 717. They ...Jump to post
Or maybe just don’t shoot at the fuselage of an unfinished commercial aircraft ? Seems like a novel, yet simple idea. Or here’s any idea!

I wonder if the cost to resurrect some 737 classics (yes, I know they've been de-spec'd and sold off, etc) would be cheaper than the supposed $150M they're losing due to the MAX grounding. Now the timing, that's a different story...Jump to post

A little early for April Fools.... Why would two modern, recognized brands give up their identities to take on a largely-forgotten brand with a very generic sounding (and currently in-use) name?
