Re: LH to announce two new US-routes from MUC

ANC? Wow! B6 cant even make this work from Seattle. Go LH group! Awesome additions! According to the B6 website, they still fly SEA-ANC during the summers. B6—and I’m just guessing here—appears to use an aircraft that would otherwise RON at SEA for this service. They depart SEA after 8PM, land in A...

Re: (Rumor) FI not returning to MCI in 2020?

Isn't this flight currently 3/4x a week? I would assume if it was not performing great 2x schedule would be tried like some of their other smaller cities. But maybe it is just that bad.

Re: F9 Could Use A321XLR Order for Transatlantic

F9 is getting the jet to fly Transconinental flights from the East to the West Coast. Why do they need the XLR for that? The regular NEO should be sufficient. 240 pax + bags + winds, I would hope the A321NEO could take that on, but maybe it is just on the wrong side. I imagine a heavy plane like th...

Maybe see some revival of a few of the old DL routes from CVG to Europe? :) :)

Re: F9 Could Use A321XLR Order for Transatlantic

While DEN may be their largest city, don't assume any of these "long-haul" (HI included) would be from DEN. Frontier is a ULCC point-to-point carrier. The longer stage A321 network will be a mismatch of origin cities all over the country to wherever.

Re: Sun Country admits Cost-Cutting is hurting the airline

In a new article written by the StarTribune, Sun Country admits that cutting costs is resulting in a massive rise in complaints and is hurting business. You are not really painting the correct picture and 'hurting business' is not how I would characterize this article (nor how it is characterized i...

Re: Southwest Mechanics and FA’s say airline is unsafe

Do the recent incidents at Southwest not at least support this a little? When you look at which airlines are fined for MX issues it seems like WN is frequently on that list. Not to mention a couple high profile (one of which was deadly) engine issues in the last couple years. I'm happy everyone is s...

Re: The current club of global airports with non-stop services to all other 5 populated continents

Counting HNL as Australia/Oceania would add several more members to the club besides YYZ - EWR, IAD, JFK, and ORD would all make it under the same logic. I personally wouldn't count it, but I understand the logic. Since when (never) has Hawaii been considered part of Oceania? Just because it's in t...

Re: New service to KBIL Billings, MT

I don't know why it would be anyone but F9- this is 100% the kind of city they have been going after and frankly surprised they haven't been there in the last few years anyway. SY has stated their intention to pick-up "left over" pax on high demand routes, BIL does not fit the description....

Re: First A320 for JetSmart Argentina delivered today at XFW

Fixed that for you. :wink2: I know that this board is global, but I'm pretty sure that by now folks know that raccoons are also referred to as trash-pandas. The comment refers to the black cockpit window mask that seems to be spreading beyond the A350. So my question remains. Is the black cockpit w...

Re: Southwest To Bozeman?

First- BZN is the chief market in Montana, regardless of population of the surrounding area. Look at the current capacity and network from BZN vs BIL if you think population is the driving factor. Also look at the type of flying into BZN, lots of single daily flights to larger metro areas. That shou...

Re: Las Vegas New Airport (Ivanpah Valley)

Where is that hyperloop/ constantly mentioned high-speed rail from LA? :)
13% of LAS departures are to the LA Basin alone- sounds like an easy way to get some capacity back.

Re: Why Sun Country 737-800 sits for 3 days do nothing!

Good thought about casino flying, but SY has more than enough options to get planes to and from LAS/IFP. Based on the seasonality of this route, which is the end of August to November (same for SAV and AUS), the aircraft are most likely intended to be used for NCAA College Football charters.

Re: Why Sun Country 737-800 sits for 3 days do nothing!

Prime location for fall college football charters, which are typically Friday - Saturday. Shorter ferry flights to west coast schools makes for a much more competitive price. Look at SAV and AUS, you should see something similar. I imagine this is the entire reason this flight exists, no way it will...
