Re: OAG Changes 2/10/2019:AA Exits JFK-MCO; DL Extends ATL-OAK

You forgot YYZ & YUL AA still operates JFK to BWI, CVG, CLE, CMH, IND, BNA, ORF, PIT, and RDU. All non hub and all within the LGA perimeter. If you are asking about mainline then yes it appears that you are correct. Since when did YYZ and YUL become domestic? As YYZ and YUL both have preclearan...

Re: US Air Force will recall 1k retired pilots: impact on airlines?

I don't think Czar Trump can force fully retired pilots into armed services without either a Congress approval or a draft. The National Emergencies Act gives the President that power, pursuant to the state of emergency declared Sept. 14, 2001, and continued every year since then by the President in...

Re: Delta: International Main Cabin dining reinvented

I just cannot understand why so many people on here think a menu card is such a big deal. It's not like you have so many options to choose from, its either this or that! If you want more details open your in-flight magazine and check it out! Or I guess if people like them so much just print menu ca...

Re: LOT to start Budapest- New York

That's interesting. Could be the case, the Polish and Hungarian governments have a lot in common, perhaps the end goal is to have an SAS kind of airline, Poland, Hungary and may be the Czech Republic or Slovakia? KrisYYZ That would be great. But the population of Hungary and Slovakia together isn't...

With only 4 runways to be shared by arrivals and departures, LAX is quickly approaching the limit on total number of aircraft movements it can handle.


LAX is still 10% off it's own peak annual movements.

Re: Hawaiian Airlines Facing Increased Competition

I know HNL is not on the Great Circle. But DXB is also far from the Asia-Europe Great Circle, it has nonetheless become a super-hub for Asia-Europe traffic. What DXB does have is short-haul feed. HNL is >4 hours from anywhere but small islands, covering maybe 40 million people. Half that radius aro...

Are there any other 332 flights to SFO? Kind of funny that they'd let it sit there overnight.

Re: Preliminary approval to St. Louis to explore putting its airport under private management

Note that the City of St. Louis is seeking to put the airport under private mangement, not private ownership. Thus, all of the talk about the differing financial prospects of private owners is off-topic.

Re: DC Area Lawmakers to Colleagues: Hands Off DCA

By law, a certain number of slots are restricted to small jets and prop planes. If you wish to increase the size of the planes, you need to look at the usage of small planes relative to the commuter slot quota to determine whether putting the hard limit on air carrier slot usage vs. commuter slot us...

There's a dozen trains per day carrying ~350 seats each with a 2:35 running time and they terminate Midtown. No one flies ALB-LGA/JFK. Even if you're flying TATL, from ALB people will just drive to JFK (UA does fly to EWR.)

Re: AA to offer free meals in coach on transcons

ckfred wrote:
The reason AA is starting with the JFK trans-cons is because the A321Ts probably have enough galley space to offer a plated meal in Y.


Remember, the transcon A321 has the fewest Y seats of any mainline plane in the AA fleet. There's even one E175 configuration that has as many Y seats.

That's KOA-BLI, the arc just wasn't tweaked enough to make it avoid the OGG vertex.

Re: Oregon Aviation Thread - Part 13

Has anyone looked at Delta's nonstop coach fares to LHR and AMS for next spring? $1,500 one way to LHR. $3,000 one way to AMS. Are you kidding? Have you looked at the competing one-stop oneway fares? The only way to beat the price of the nonstop is Iceland Air or an obscure 5th freedom tag on Air N...
