Hey everyone. I’m writing to share sad news. My good friend of 17 years and fellow Airliners.net photographer, Ozell Stephens Jr., also known as 727Lover on these forums, passed away today. He had a stroke just after Halloween and was progressing well but he contracted COVID and it is believed he pa...Jump to post
I'm sorry if this has already been covered but I couldn't find anything by searching for it: What is going on at ORD today? I know it's a new month and maybe it's part of a schedule change but why does AA only have flights to ORD from other hubs today? I couldn't find much of any non-hub flying fro...Jump to post

Does anyone know what the non movement area on Taxiway D between ramps 6 and 8 by the tower is about? Imagine this taxiway would be used more frequently if that weren’t there. I worked in ATL when D between Ramps 6 North and 6 South became a non movement area. When ramp 8 was opened up with Concour...Jump to post
Just noticed this flight on FlightAware:
Why is N856GT, an Atlas 747-8F, making a flight under the Qantas call sign? Obviously Qantas has contracted Atlas to fly freight from ORD to HNL but why do they use the QFA call sign?
Doesn't appear to be true.
Several DL branded flights in the air right now
MSP is my home airport. Airport reported today that the total parking spaces controlled by the airport are 2% full. Year-over-year TSA clearances for today down 94% It baffles me how much flying there is, as it is basically entirely empty. Just looking at random DL markets: MSP-DEN 4x MSP-SAN 2x MS...Jump to post
The might seem like an odd post but the thought crossed my mind tonight: Ever since I took my first flight as a 7 year old, I remember the cabin of airliners having a particular smell. It's distinct and noticeable and 25 years later, I still notice it. Smell is one of the most powerful senses with m...Jump to post
I usually get up to 60 on that stretch of route 41 W H A T? Remind me to avoid YOU....jeez :eek: :lol: Well the speed limit is 50 haha. I don’t want to be run off the road by these Florida drivers.

Something I've always wondered about: How are airline liveries applied so accurately despite multiple companies or vendors doing the work? How do they know exactly where to place tape or whatever devices they use to section off colors or patterns? I just find it amazing how precise aircraft painting...Jump to post
Would doing college charters for a few months give them as cash flow boost?? Money up front vs selling one seat at a time?? Since they're a virtual airline to begin with, they can't do "college charters for a few months." Elite could (and does) but not Midwest. Midwest doesn't own any air...Jump to post
Wow...so does this mean that Sanford is losing its TUI service? If so that means no more trans-Atlantic flights from SFB. MLB is a small airport and if I remember correctly a small International arrivals hall. This looks to only be TUI UK, so there will still be TUI flights at SFB. Correct me if I'...Jump to post
TW was 1984 sometime, the Feb 15th, 1985 OAG shows the M80 from STL, While in July 1983 it was 727 or 72S services. AA was likely later in the 1980's as the longer 727 routes were the first converted to the MD-80's as they arrived in many carriers fleets for the better fuel savings. Thanks for look...Jump to post
Not to beat a dead horse, but like everyone eluded to, the old airport (KISN) was not designed for even CRJs multiple times a day. It did not meet the design safety standards of the FAA and was cheaper to build the new airport (KXWA) instead of redoing ISN. My in laws have family in Williston and we...Jump to post
Hello, I've noticed almost daily American (Envoy) Flight 3337 ORD-OMA has three flight plans listed in FlightAware for the same route at the same time. One shows at AAL3337 (when it's not mainline operating this flight), another shows RPA3337 (operated by Republic) and finally, the actual ENY3337 (o...Jump to post

This morning (3rd) both BA and Virgin have cancelled the LGW-MCO flights, lots of unhappy kids. :( What's very interesting is this flight took off: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/VIR15 After it departed it "diverted" to ATL. Did someone mess up here? Oddly enough, VS website shows it...Jump to post
Last I heard they were getting something similar to a ZED, so not free and very low priority. DGS has also been losing UA contracts, so I’m wondering if they’ve been able to pick up any other business since the transition. This is what I've also heard from DGS employees I know. Basically they are S...Jump to post
Hello all, I've noticed for a while now that photo views are way down.

So this website exists and mentions LAS/IAH/DFW/BWI-SRQ routes. Is this a new page they're setting up for a new city announcement?

Hello all, I recently visited CYYZ and the nation of Canada for the first time a few weeks ago and now I'm really interested in all things Canadian aviation.

Hi, Why do some CRJ-900s have an emergency exit on the right side of the aircraft in the last row (last window) and some don't?

Thanks for making me think of OMA & it got me looking into some of the interesting routes OMA has had over the years. I'm sure you know all this stuff already, but it was interesting to explore for me.
More and more airports in the U.S. are doing public tours these days thanks to social media and increased acceptance of "plane spotters." MIA has held an annual airfield tour for hobbyists for many many years and just recently TPA and SRQ held tours with limited available spots for airfiel...Jump to post

Cool. Thanks for everyone's input. I work overnight 4 nights a week, myself, but I don't fly airplanes. While it may be within regulation, I don't think I'd want to pilot a 3 hours flight overnight just to turn around go back the other way. More so, I don't know if I'd want to be a passenger onboard...Jump to post
So I know Allegiant schedules most (or all?) of their trips so crews always get back to base at the end of a day. This obviously saves a lot of money on overnighting aircraft at outstations but it also saves on crew hotel costs. I always thought all AAY flights leave their crew bases and then come r...Jump to post

I can't believe this is still a problem almost two weeks later. When is this going to be fixed? I'm seriously thinking of leaving this site and taking my photos with me. I don't know if I was to lend my photos to a site that is this poorly designed and run. Get with it, A.net!Jump to post
