Does anyone here have a list of airports that are currently affected? I might have missed a post, and to be honest, this is only one of maybe three websites I even spend time with. My google time goes down as I age. That being said, I am leaving Kauai tomorrow (I know, why?!) and landing SAT after c...Jump to post
Now this part I 100% agree with. Like people driving 2 miles out of the way to save a penny a gallon on gas. Although at $3.00/gallon and say 20 mpg, it’s $27. For $50 per ticket for a family of four, it’s worth the drive. Yea, but that’s just gas. More goes into it than just gas. For a family of 4...Jump to post
Driving 180 miles (estimating 90 miles one way) costs a lot more than most people think. Now this part I 100% agree with. Like people driving 2 miles out of the way to save a penny a gallon on gas.

yeah I don't think either of those are on the table unless they get 737-700's Is the 737-700 the only aircraft that can land/take-off from those airports?

I would imagine the poster you quoted was referring to population, though it's also incorrect that SAT is the largest city in that sense. Houston has ~800,000 more people than San Antonio. Of course, metro area is what we should really look at for airport service, in which case San Antonio drops to...Jump to post
Not to nitpick but SAT is actually 2nd largest at 505 square miles, while Houston is tops at 669 square miles. Austin is a lowly #6 at 272 square miles. What I found interesting is that CRP is number 3! Dallas and then Ft Worth follow, before Austin at #6 and El Paso at #7. I would imagine the post...Jump to post
DL flew ATL-VIE briefly in the late 2000s. That was back in the "Delta dartboard" days when the airline still flew fairly extensively to Eastern Europe (PRG, BUD, ATH, OTP, KBP, SVO). ATH / Greece is not in Eastern Europe. So, I am learning here. Greece is not Eastern Europe, is it Southe...Jump to post

On a side note, as a purely personal opinion (and preference), while the A220 has amazing looks and indeed looks sexy as hell, I still prefer flying on an A319, with its big, fat fuselage, than on an A220, which honestly I don't find particularly comfortable... aside from the big oval windows, I to...Jump to post
I was only 10 at the time, but my dad was a first officer then for WA. His regular flights then were LAX-HNL. Take my now 50+ year old memory of 10 year old me.

As another poster pointed out, you left out LGB which could probably go to 2x. SEA won't happen. PDX is a maybe. I think LAX and OAK potentially could be 6x each. I'd expect BUR 2x. Good lord. 12x daily flights from OAK and LAX on just WN? Here’s a question that might not be too popular but how can...Jump to post

I spent some six months on and off in Anchorage over the years and the AS HNL flights were well advertised locally. And I think at the beginning of service the "Chester" figure on the tail wore a Hawaiian lei on some of their aircraft, though that may have been for Hawaii service from low...Jump to post
Those horseshoe shaped terminal apron areas look like an operational nightmare. Yeah, there are a lot of arguments saying that the lotus-inspired design of the terminals are not optimal for operation: https://media.laodong.vn/Storage/NewsPortal/2020/5/25/807690/B3-H1.jpg?w=888&h=592&crop=au...Jump to post
I love designs of airports and how they grow. Thank you for starting this thread. I didn’t even know of plans. It will be fun for me to see the progress. Keep the updates coming.Jump to post
Here's a question that I have always wondered: Do controllers have their own microphone/headsets, or do they use communal ones? We all have our own, issued by the FAA. Curious to know what brand. Do you get to choose the set? Bose? David Clark? No choice, and every facility I’ve been it’s Plantroni...Jump to post
Pretty sure the real reason for niner isbecause nine sounds too much like five. It alleviates confusion. And it is used at my facility 97.73% of the time. Pilots are probably closer to 80%. Funny, to comment like “I’ve been doing this since 1910 and never said or heard niner” That is BSJump to post
Just curious, why is SLC-LAX a route that has so many players? I know before deregulation it was a Western mainstay, with little competition. Then with LAX and SLC being Western hubs, they still dominated it. Delta probably has not let that market dissipate. So I guess, my question would be, is SLC ...Jump to post
A bit adrift from the original A310-200 question, but to complete the story... Delta ordered the new-build -325s in a deal that was structured in such a way that they could return the planes early (as, it transpired, was the case for the ex PA A310-300s). Airbus saw this a securing the existing A31...Jump to post
If you need or want ATC service, be sure to let them know your status. You will always get better service, rather than calling and missing calls because you are busy trying to do your thing. They will be more understanding, knowing you are already uneasy. Just please say something when traffic is is...Jump to post
Just a very quick look at your link. But my assumption is that with the weather you described, and light traffic the approach controller let them fly straight to the field. Controller assumed they would get field in sight and turn a base where they were comfortable. Then the pilot said we need a dow...Jump to post

Yes, Skywest and Commutair have officially laid pilots off.

Do they really mean a "tanker"? Surely, all fueling in the 'D' terminal is underground. Certainly looks like a tanker truck in the video... I suspect sewage would be far worse.

Miramar? I think you mean Myanmar! Nope. Word on the street is that Naval Air Station Miramar is going to place an order for 10 A220-300's. They are likely to be used as flying billboards for a recruiting campaign, set to coincide with the new Top Gun movie. Apparently John Travolta has been helpin...Jump to post
