This was just posted to Facebook by SBN. Any thoughts as to where? Hopefully PHL, DCA or Denver! https://www.facebook.com/FlySBN/photos/a.124370020912801/2895520263797749/?type=3&theater With SRQ announcing a new service tomorrow as well I would say the announcement will be one of the following...Jump to post
Pakistan has now totally reopened their airspace as of earlier this week, so they could restart their service earlier than the Sept date given once they get all the pieces in place. Crews have already bid and been awarded their schedules for the August bid month. To add that much flying this late w...Jump to post
Liverpool flew into SBN this morning on an Atlas 747-400 for the Liverpool FC vs Borussia Dortmund match Friday evening. Dortmund will be coming from Seattle after a match Thursday evening. Anyone know who they charter?

Pretty cool. That’s the first scheduled United mainline flight into SBN since the early 80s before they cancelled the DEN and FWA service and went all Express. This will also be the first scheduled flight to LAX for SBN (Albeit only one flight for a football game). Frankly I do not know why United ...Jump to post
Anyone with a handle on how many 737s are used for the Micronesia operation? 8 5 738 3 73G I thought I read somewhere that they rotate often enough with mainland 737s. Does anyone know how frequent? I know it has to do with the saltwater environment. -INDCWBY No, the UA 737 Micronesia fleet is segr...Jump to post

One, to avoid damage from ground vehicles. There are a few CRJ operators that reset to the flaps to a normal takeoff setting after landing because there is not enough clearance for ground vehicles to with that’s extended or retracted. There are a few other exceptions as well. Some carriers will call...Jump to post
In the last two weeks KLM 611/612 has been operated with a mix of 744, 772 and 789 aircraft. This seems like an extremely inefficient use of crew resources. Alternating types and especially the one off 789 would cause needless deadheads and extended layovers. I would weigh what you allege as ineffi...Jump to post

No one wants to fly that decrepit 767300 for near ten hours hence bookings are light as people choose VS from MCO or connect thru ATL/DTW/JFK Said the 0.000007% of Airliners.net users that regularly fly between Tampa and Amsterdam.

Well, DL is the only possibility among the US3 for sure. If DL can make IND-CDG a success (has that started yet?), CLE does not sound out of the question to me.[/quote] The state of Indana is giving Delta 5.5 million dollars over two years in incentives and revenue guarantee. The final tranche ends ...Jump to post
Might be a blessing in disguise for CLE as it may improve chances for EI or possibly others, maybe DL to CDG or such. This logic continues to dumbfound me. CLE finally gets the TATL service it has been longing for, then when it gets cancelled people call it a “blessing in disguise?!” What? Currentl...Jump to post
Video of the wreckage found so far: https://youtu.be/-G-KfcFQg9U The angles on whats left of the fan blades seems to indicate at least one of those engines impacted while still spinning.

Newly found video. Aircraft appears to be intact.

The real end of the Suite Class has always been the Gulfsteam and Global Express series. Anyone who could afford a full fare on EK or EY would just assume charter a business jet and avoid the constraints of a schedule and the stop in the Middle East.Jump to post

Enroute to ORD as BAW 295

Forgot about that possibility, although if it's not even flown from New York, what are the chances from ORD, I wonder.
UA flies EWR-BOM daily, it’s been flown for years, a CO carry over.
I'll be - thought they flew EWR-DEL - apologies
United has its own ATW and BTW employees at NRT, so I don't see them moving a lot of flighst to HND. What are ATW & BTW employees ? Why is moving flights to HND onerous because of these folks.

For the US Legacy carriers with crew in metro areas with two or more airports, crews may be be required to cover multiple airports. For instance NYC crews for UA, AA and DL may begin their trips in LGA, EWR or JFK and reserves are required to be able to cover trips at all airports. Same for LAX (LAX...Jump to post
Twice Daily starting May 23rd.

Not really sure why UA is so reluctant about a 100 seat plane, they could gain a significant advantage over AA if they added it to their fleet and deployed it to ORD Scope clause in their contract with the pilots' union. If that’s really the hold up, UA’s got some big issues. All 3 legacy US carrie...Jump to post
Looks like SBN-EWR will be coming back seasonally from August to December. Disappointing it’s not running beginning in the summer, but I guess it’s better than nothing. https://www.southbendtribune.com/news/business/united-non-stop-flights-from-south-bend-to-newark-suspended/article_4cc46598-75a1-54...Jump to post
United will be operating a SBN-DFW Nonstop on Friday Dec. 28th to accommodate ND Football fans going to the Cotton Bowl on the 29th. This is in addition to American's 2 daily nonstops.

Looks like DL is adding CLE-BOS. I’m sure this is what caused UA to drop the route. They saw a turf war starting and wanted no part of it. The problem with turf wars is that you usually end up with less service than you originally started with once one of the airlines retreats and the aggressor pull...Jump to post

[list=][/list] In April of Next Year Delta is dropping the CRJ900 off the noon flight to Atlanta but adding another ATL CRJ200 flight at 2:15 PM giving SBN 5 daily CRJ200 flights to ATL wgich would in effect add about 35 more seats to the market. SBN still may see bigger planes on this route. I hope...Jump to post
It must be a quickly growing market. I the last few years UA has gone all mainline from ORD in the summer and just last week added DEN-CHS.
I’m sure BA has done their research. They have yet to pull back on any new mid-sized US market they’ve added, so they must have some reliable metrics.
All lot of CLE aviation buffs may not have a lot of love for CO/UA. But a lot of businesses and individuals have contracts and frequent flier miles with United. If available they will take a one-stop on a Star carrier versus a one-stop on an Icelandic carrier. If there was a non-stop option that wou...Jump to post
Most of the daily connecting passengers on the morning EWR flight were going to BOS, 10-15 per day. Dont know how many connect to BOS from Delta's flights thru DTW. This is interesting though Skywest as a Delta Connection could conceivably operate a morning CRJ SBN-BOS if the demand was there.[/quot...Jump to post
