Re: Coronavirus Aviation Related News & Discussion Thread - March 2020

The second or third day of every month, Delta always gives a passenger summary of the previous month. Have not seen one for February. If they did one for February, I missed it.

You have to wonder how much longer AA can hold out in NY? Even LGA is seeing cuts. If I was WN or B6 I would be calling AA about an NYC asset sale. AA did a real hack job on JFK flights! By my little calculations, this update shows AA down approximately 15 flights at JFK from a year ago, (not month...

"KE ICN-LAX MAY 2>3[2] JUN 2>3[2] JUL 2>3[2] AUG 2>3[2]" Looks like KE is starting a third flight on this route. Not sure if this is year round, or seasonal. Is this because of the new JV with DL,.or is it a preemptive move to make sure possibly AA does not start the route? Or both?

December JFK goes down from 109 average daily flights to only 76 average. It's not just the holiday period that got whacked. For example, the first Thursday of the month December 6th went from 109 departures to 73. It’s worth noting that AA further cut PHL in the winter. I haven’t looked for upgaug...

Here is what I'm sure everyone at AA management knows, but won't tell their NYC crew. All those high value customers have moved to DL. They aren't coming back unless DL starts cutting routes or product. And that clearly isn't happening. Without those ff, DL will continue to eat their lunch in NYC. ...

      Re: Questions about the final year of Eastern

      Question I have always had about the shutdown. The day of the shutdown, I was in Chickasha, Oklahoma on business. That night, I flew back to Atlanta from Oklahoma City, on Delta. When I got back to Atlanta that night, it was so sad to see, all of those Eastern planes just sitting/parked everywhere. ...

      There seems to be a genuine madness going on here. There is no where aa can put these flights which would not end up hemorrhaging money. Why are they trying so hard to keep dl and ua from getting them? Let dl and ua get their slots and loose money with it. This is complete insanity.

      100% agree.

      Former Delta President Jim Whitehurst to get possible BIG paycheck!

      From BusinessInsider.com: "Here's who will get richer when IBM buys Red Hat for $34 billion" - "Red Hat President Jim Whitehurst could make over $72 million from the deal." Something tells me that things worked out very well for Jim, when he left/or got let go by Delta! https://w...

      Re: Delta proposes MSP-PVG

      This is 100% aimed at AA.

      AA is saying/asking that they want their dormant routes held until next fall 2019. This is Delta's way of saying, either fly them by the fall or 2019, or we want them. Nothing more!

      Re: Virgin to join worldwide by easyjet

      Who cares what DL thinks? They own a 49% stake which is a minority. VS is still calling the shots especially with this EZ deal. Wrong. VS is now actually a minority owner. Delta has the 49%. and the D/AF/KM joint venture ownership has (I think) 33%, which gives VS (I think) 18%. Delta, because, of ...

      Re: Forbes' Dan Reed: "JetBlue is For Sale!"

      Every company is for sale--it is a board's fiduciary duty to get the best return for shareholders, and it that means a sale, so be it. As someone who just recently retired, trust me, this quote is extremely accurate. Now, don't get me wrong, none of us know what is going on, (if anything), inside t...
