Is Jetblue at 4 daily, year round on FLL-LAX? Os is it at 3 daily year round and add in a 4th daily seasonal flight? Perhaps they need to also up FLL-SFO to 3 daily year round and make FLL-LAX 4 daily year round? Maybe even up FLL-SAN to 2 daily year round by adding a morning FLL-SAN flight? At wha...Jump to post
NK is using Terminal B, Gate B4 for its 3x daily to Vegas. They're check-in counter however is in Terminal A taking over AS counter. Every gate in BUR is CUTE ready except for WN Gates A1-A6. Gates A7 is still our only full-time 800 ready gate. Still no timetable on the angled J-Lines. Although, as...Jump to post
One thing to note on BOS-LAX. B6/DL/UA were all running lie flat aircraft during Q1 and AA was not, so it wasn't terrible number, but still not good. Would be interesting to see how the incorporation of A321T did in Q2. I'm struggling to figure out what AS can do to turn around transcon performance...Jump to post

Legally, CO was the surviving entity. Funny how these things work. In California, legally, United Airlines first registered to do business with the state... as People's Express!

United's meal on transcon routes mostly matches what CO was giving for free in Y before they stopped and is served on a tray. Breakfast consists of fruit cup, yogurt and a choice of salty/sweet entrée (has been omelet or pancakes/French Toast). Lunch/Dinner is a small salad, choice of hot entrée and...Jump to post

I work in Chicago ATC and if I had to guess I would say west flow about 60% of the time. Today for example we are east flow as the current winds are 050 at 14. It has nothing to do with construction or anything like that, just the winds or sometimes weather. If the winds are real bad and we are for...Jump to post
The only place that held onto a "grudge", if you will, was Israel, as their laws state that TWA owed Israeli employees money, and whoever took over that route authority - however long that took - had to pay that bill before any new carrier from the U.S. could begin service. AA eventually ...Jump to post
neighboring affluent communities in LA such as Sherman Oaks and Universal City are already fighting the airport with increased noise levels thanks to the new FAA takeoff procedures/flight paths, so we all here expect some lawsuits over increased ambient noise and traffic congestion.

Back in the day I used to work at a hotel that only served Pepsi products. Since rum and coke is such a popular order I’d never tell anybody and not a single person out of tens of thousands ever tasted the difference. However if you say “I’ve only got Pepsi” and they’re like “fine then” then the co...Jump to post

At 6,500 feet long and at an elevation of 12.9 ft at the 35 side, it’s an operational no brainer to use when possible. By comparison, Both LGA runways are 7,000 ft at similar elevation and BUR’s main runways are 5,802 (8/26)for landing and 6,886 (15/33) for takeoffs at approx 700 ft elevation, with ...Jump to post
Update: Current situation has changed from the last couple weeks. AA with new mainline service to and from DFW was using Terminal B and gate B4, but due to the amount of traffic coming in, with Mesa/Skywest(AA) RJ-700s and the B73-8 coming in at banks, airport ops has given them priority handling b...Jump to post
I marked the routes that appear to have complete suspensions. They recently said that in this route of cuts they focused on poorer performance rather than MAX planned routes, by swapping aircraft around. That tells us that point to point Mexico and leisure transcon are poor. Not surprising. I think...Jump to post
That's maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but the Philadelphia metro as a whole is a lot poorer than Washington or Boston (per capita income for WAS is $47.4K, for BOS $37.3K, for PHL $22.9K). NYC is under 10% higher for per capita income but 4x larger for population... You are looking at City borders...Jump to post
There was an article on Crankyflyer last week about AA reductions at JFK. Most are due to runway work and they got a waiver from the PA to park the slots during the project. I am sure they got the same with the MAX reductions or they were during the day before the slot restrictions begin.Jump to post
This report states different. In 2017 the O&D was 67.3% of the almost 15 million passengers. https://www.phl.org/Documents/Business/Reports/Standards.pdf That's 10 million people. Which is quite small. DFW is something like 45% O&D, which while smaller percentage wise, is 3 times the that o...Jump to post
ASQX, yes I meant the JANNY. From what I saw on the chart when I pulled it, the THRNE is for VNY, BUR and SMO only. How much of a time saver is it instead of going up through Palmdale and Santa Clarita and down and around? Do you request it when given the chance, or is the natural flow JANNY because...Jump to post
I have noticed that the new AA flights from DFW to BUR and the WN flight from HOU have been using the THRNE3 arrival into Burbank RWY 8 and 31 instead of going up and through the Antelope and Santa Clarita Valley's before joining the JOVEM4 arrival. I know winds have been an issue, but other flights...Jump to post
Heard BUR is removing gate A1 so it can angle gates 2,3,4,5,6,7 so every gate can accommodate either 737-800 and A320 .It's also expanding the Airline checked luggage area on the ramp side to accommodate the increase flight schedules.

So AA, AS, NK all serve PHL to LAX. Currently AA 6x, AS 1x, and NK 1x daily. I'm aware UA a long time ago to serve PHL-LAX. My question is would the other 2 of the BIG 3 U.S. airlines serve LAX-PHL? Also I noticed that the AS switch the PHL-LAX from morning to night departure 7:45pm for summer 7:25...Jump to post

I don’t think it’s gone. Looking at FlightAware just now, UA 2418 (EWR) and DL 1503 (DEN) are performing the loop this morning. But B6 224 (JFK) took the more southerly route. Must be based on what ATC feels is best. I've been flying US/AA and B6 321's out of LAX since US began sending them in 2001...Jump to post
AFAIK, there still has not been any sort of 'big splash' with not a single after-shock. Actually, there has been.

Maybe they got PQI confused with the Patchikofo Resort where the Concorde landed.
I flew UA 240 yesterday EWR-LAX in a 78X and we hit 100+ mph headwinds as far down as the low teens on climbout.Jump to post
I flew LAX-JFK this morning on B6 and we were cruising at FL37 doing 655 mph over Montrose when things got a little wild for 5 minutes. We ultimately descended down to FL35, which was better, but continuous light chop until we hit Kansas. We also lost a lot of our tailwind when we descended too.Jump to post
I lived in DSM for several years and F9 had a reputation of being cheap but fairly unreliable. Anyone who had encountered irregular ops with them likely picked other airlines for key travel. DSM needs a year round west coast non-stop. They have LAS, and PHX with WN and could probably support LAX or...Jump to post
We usually flew to PBI from PHL, but one year we flew to FLL, which Eastern called Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale.

Maybe the flight times on BUR-BOS are hurting things? Personally, getting into Boston at 4 am does not sound appealing. It's not. No T service for another hour, and nowhere to go if you don't live there. But JFK is the only other destination out of Burbank and that flight arrives at 6am which is on...Jump to post
Newer generation 737's were more fuel efficient than the -200's EXCEPT for short run flights under 30min when the fuel savings didn't kick in. I read somewhere there was another issue with the newer engines being unable to cool down sufficiently between flights which meant longer turn around times ...Jump to post
BOS-PDX-BOS when we have it is a red eye turn. Does the flight deck do that as a turn too? I know years ago when they flew JFK-TUS, the flight crew did it as a turn. It sounded miserable when they mentioned it to me. I'd be sucking on the oxygen mask the whole leg east. Negative. I could be wrong, ...Jump to post
Add Mint to FLL-SEA (as noted above), JFK/BOS-BUR Perhaps some new Mint transcons adds?

The 737 is unforgiving on short runways. Add wet and a potentially unstabalaized approach and it’s the recipe for an overrun. The 737-800/900 are. The 700 is very capable of short runway ops. Does WN even operate the 738 at BUR? I know AS and UA do; AA's upcoming DFW-BUR service will be flown by th...Jump to post
And WN is immune from post curfew operations? I was at BUR last week and there were 4 post 10pm arrivals alone. They will be paying those fines too at LGB.
