I live in Tampa. From all the German I overhear constantly one 380 a day may not be enough. Really. (ok. Not really.) Lots of Germans hitting the beaches summer and winter.Jump to post

Please post any evidence or links that support 1) Crew are more susceptible due to "buildup," and 2) this problem is worse on Airbus aircraft. Frankly, both of your arguments are a stretch. I'm sorry your google is broken. Here's just one. https://www.docsopinion.com/2018/07/02/fume-event...Jump to post
Crew are more susceptible to these fume events due to toxic air buildup. The body has only so much resistance. While the passengers are exposed to toxic air on one or two flights, crew are susceptible on many flights. This is becoming a big issue on Airbus aircraft. I think pilots and FA's are worki...Jump to post
That’s not as bad as it may sound. I’m not denying that it is an eye watering amount of money, but BellSouth took multiple hits of over a billion just for restructuring about 20 years ago. What they do is take a loss on the books upfront and then reduce the accrual as they pay out the penalties in ...Jump to post

If one airline accommodates passengers with a flight after another airline cancels under an interline agreement -- and gets paid for doing so -- what's the big deal? Every airline has weather, gate, and technical issues. This happens every day. The big deal would be one airline sending a special pl...Jump to post
Bought the airline, parked the planes, laid off the employees, and closed the hubs. How in the hell this got past regulators is still beyond me. Letting the company die a natural death and get liquidated would have been kinder. The last half of your sentence is exactly what happened. The company di...Jump to post
Regarding low quality posts, that has always been an issue, and frankly I think the forum would die if there only was high tech topics discussing part numbers, economic breakdowns of airline budgets or accurate physics calculations on the forces that bring aircraft into the air.

If I was you I'd be buying lottery tickets left and right. I also assume you've never flown to or through PHL? No. lottery odds are not good. I have flown through PHL.

It's not just about the seats. It's the attitude of the front line employees. They don't seem to care. They are just going through the motions. Gate agents, FA's - they simply don't seem to be motivated. The average flyer is more likely to remember bad service than a cramped seat. This is where AA ...Jump to post
AA didn't buy the entire airline. It wasn't a merger, so integration went quicker. It was an asset sale. AA bought those parts of TWA they wanted and didn't take what they didn't want.Jump to post
I said it was a mistake many times and it would prove costly to not to redo all of B. Let us remember that only 2/3rds of B is getting rebuilt. The Southwest hall of B will remain in it's current state and planned to be unused. They should have redo all of B as costs will always rise. I think it is...Jump to post

You are probably one of the few people I've ever heard say the SkyTrain isn't user friendly. Signage is pretty clear but its targeted more towards departing passengers getting off as the # of passengers using the SkyTrain to get to baggage claim is near zero. No. Signage was not clear. There was a ...Jump to post
I just used the PHX Sky Train for the first time to go from Terminal 3 to 4. What a major pain. My wife and I came in separately landing about the same time I was on DL she was on AA. I told her I would meet her in T-4 baggage claim. Walked east the whole length of T-3, turned north to get the cente...Jump to post
Think of it this way: consider the effort that airlines take to watch over UMs (which is - in part - to ensure that no-one interferes with them in their seat, when they're 16.5 inches from the passenger in the next seat over). They charge a fee for it, dedicate resources and put age limits on UMs. ...Jump to post
That's because the worst part of I-4 is between Orlando and Lakeland. . Yes. That is the worse. So, day in and day out, Lakeland and western polk/eastern Hillsborough are an easy commute to TPA. Heck southern Lakeland can jump on the Selmon. And IMHO TPA is one of the easiest airports in the countr...Jump to post
This is correct. I had a bad experience with DL at LAX last summer. Thanks to an AA cancellation (big shocker, I know), we booked LAX-OGG on about 24 hours notice for our family of four. We initially didn't have seats, and for some reason when the 752 was upgraded to a 753, we still couldn't pick s...Jump to post

The additional overall profit to be made with two--maybe three RJs--out of LKL over what they make now is nothing.Jump to post
Why would AA want to cannibalize its significant operations in TPA and MCO for exceedingly small return at LKL? Heck, throw in SRQ for the southern portion of Hillsborough and Polk and it diminishes the probabilities even more. This is just common sense.Jump to post

Lol..most of the debate here is how Boeing May have screwed up by hanging new, big engines on an old design instead of a clean sheet design. So, depending on your side of the argument, it is an older version of the Max.Jump to post
Scope is simply a mechanism to stop the exploitation of cheap, outsourced labor.
I am far from a road warrior, but I have easily flown more than 100,000 miles on DL over the past 20 years. I have used nearly all of their hubs, including the former DFW and CVG. I have NEVER once connected at ATL. Obviously it is a monster hub for them, but it's out of the way for large parts of ...Jump to post

Pep was ANCflyer. An ANet legend who was acerbic, caustic and took no crap from anyone. He was a moderator at one time who ruled with too iron a fist. He was banned for long times and I think eventually banned for life--or at least quit in a huff. One of a kind.Jump to post
The You Tube video I saw shows condensation buildup between the outside window and the inner window. Condensation between the two happens on all planes--at least the ones I have been on. Why there is that small hole on the inside. The inner window is not pressurized to the outside.Jump to post
There are many variables going on here. Your connect type, speed, routing on your carrier. WNs system speed, routing, traffic to their server. Any of these can lag a little.
