Re: Phoenix Aviation Thread - 2020

I flew PHX LAS Tuesday July 7 about 17: 00 and the A gates were packed. There were very few seats. My plane had about 50 empty seats, (A320). I guess they have consolidated ops in the A gates so that could account for the crowds. On arrival into LAS the Airport was empty. We arrived at the D gates a...

Re: Amazon Fleet Discussion - 2020

This is totally my opinion so feel free to correct. I see ATSG (including Southern Air) having a much easier time hiring good qualified pilots due to the lay off and reduction of the big airlines. On the upside it should increase the experience of the pilot group. I do not mean to disparage any of t...

Re: Will Boeing and Airbus received new orders this year?

I wonder if the sudden flooding of the market of fairly new frames from the likes of Norwegian and other airlines that fail could negate orders for new aircraft. There could be a lot of A3XX and 787's available at bargain prices. This could seriously affect the new orders.
