It’s not unusual at all for large corporations to have legislative liaisons with state legislators and local officials where they have operations.Jump to post
I remember an old storefront in downtown Tulsa across from Spaghetti Warehouse was full of AA DC10 or MD11? interior furnishings, lambs wool covered business class, main cabin seats, cabin dividers, closets. You could see them through the windows. Long gone now.Jump to post

So will those former US 757s stay on the PHX-Hawaii routes a while longer? Wasn’t looking forward to new tight non AVOD A321neos to the islands.Jump to post
Can someone say definitively if the B/E Aerospace Meridian Economy Seat’s modular upper back shells can be changed out to accommodate IFE screens (Delta style wireless tablets)?Jump to post
Bravo Delta. American will no longer be my first choice for domestic.Jump to post

What would they be leaving as-is? Changing standard main cabin seats to 30” pitch is effectively what they’re doing, along with some needed interior improvements. They’re not going to change their minds on the 737 configuration. At least they scrapped the 29” pitch idea. Not replace the lavs. Not b...Jump to post
I’m pretty surprised about wn. I find them so underwhelming , dirty crammed aircraft, horrible schedules from where I live in the northeast and no power options and a very meager in flight WiFi. Just peanuts and canned water. B6 had it for 11 years in a row and I know they have a great product espe...Jump to post
Where is AA operating the MAX to/from right now? I saw they were going to be on DFW-ANC. MIA-LGA/UIO/POS/BOS/MCO/POP MIA-DCA recently had a one-off MAX flight as well. The late MIA-DEN is one of the next routes to go to the MAX. They’re also running the 738K (the Oasis bird) on MIA-LAS exclusively ...Jump to post
Operations: Our interiors are not as consistent as any of us would like. There’s a project under way right now to fix that. We will be retrofitting our Boeing 737-800s to make their interiors the same as the new B737 MAX, including newer seats, larger overhead bins and power at every seat. This is s...Jump to post

Sounds like they decided they didn’t want to cede paid F revenue to AA and DL, in many cases.Jump to post
Information is our friend. One thing I think everyone can agree is because of forums like these, blogs, and main stream sources the traveler today has access to knowledge about what their buying dollar will get from each carrier on a given route and in each cabin class. Service and product cutbacks ...Jump to post
The apologists are out in force. UA, in this case, loves your non-discerning and likely low yield business.Jump to post

Yes, it is. But do you think many people fly EWR-ATL-HNL to get a free lunch in coach from Delta?
Great news. So many apologists for their preferred carriers tell us we have to accept declining personal space, degraded IFE options, and other cut backs. (See AA management’s OASIS project to densify seating and remove entertainment options on the 737-800/A321)
Now expand that network JetBlue.
Do you recall whether they played boarding music on the A321?Jump to post
Last Wednesday I was on a flight from SAN to SMF. At the gate was the thank you wagon with WN agents handing out snacks and gifts. As we were entering the plane Hawaiian music was playing. The WN agent said that last year when the CEO was asked about Hawaii the answer was not so sure ; this year wh...Jump to post
The new look has grown on me though I do wish they had retained the 1968 eagle in it somehow. I bet in future decades it will return. There are/were a few gate podiums around DFW that haven't been or weren't yet rebranded with the new look (Maybe in D?). Gosh it still looked handsome, though. As for...Jump to post
