One of the live YouTube LAX streamers mentioned he had contacted Boeing to see if he could get access and broadcast the event and Boeing told him no that they were doing the exclusive live stream. It's too bad they won't let experienced streamers give us an alternative.Jump to post
Speaking of ramping up capacity, what's AA's plan for Superbowl LVII given that 1) PHX (an AA hub) is the host city for the Superbowl, and 2) one of the contending teams is from PHL (another AA hub)? Plenty of capacity was already planned to be added to PHX that week. There will be a few more fligh...Jump to post
I was at the Cranky Dorkfest plane spotting fest (Sept 2022) at LAX (In and Out Burger Park) and one of the raffle prizes AS gave away was 2 seats on the last Q400 flight. I wish I would have won that!Jump to post

United was fined nearly 2 Million for Tarmac delays in 2021. Did any of the passengers see any of that compensation? No they got nothing. So thats a joke.

So yesterday Bob Jordan , Southwest CEO promises 100 % of full schedule but there were 43 cancellations. Not 100 % but better then expected. Southwest has always had a history of promising 100 % in Bag Compliance to appease the FAA but that number is never ever going to be 100 %. In the 90's yes. S...Jump to post
On FR24 the PHX ramp is finally lit up with outbounds. I see only a small number of cancels. Looks like the inbounds are a little light but can't really say that definitively. PHX looks like a good restart for WN.Jump to post

This is what I mentioned. The DOT needs to open an investigation and restrict how many airplanes and flights they can fly and restrict them from taking any more new MAX's except for one for one retirement until they get their house in order. We can probably all agree that the current state of thing...Jump to post

So everyone keeps saying that if the extension doesn’t get done this month, it will get done next month when the new Congress convenes. How does that work? A deadline is a deadline.

I have worked as a volunteer on the last 2 PHX Superbowl's, It was a lot of fun. The one thing that I learned is the two teams in the contest don't really have many fans come.
