There's a very appropriate saying, two types of people don't like Cleveland, those who've never been and those who've never left. On air service it is frustrating that CLE ranks 43rd in passenger volume, well behind many smaller CSAs, in fact I'm hard pressed to think of another region that is so o...Jump to post
they have been sustaining at that level in the intra-west coast market for a while now. It just shows how much legacy carriers have been milking off certain midwest markets. It's not even that cheap. $102 is still $.386/mile. Yeah but they are flying CR2s at 60-80% LFs at $140 rt, which can't be ve...Jump to post

Having grown up in Cleveland, it’s actually kind of spot on. Clevelanders are also extremely defensive. When I came home and said “wow, you guys really have accents I never noticed before!” the universal response was “WE DO NOT!!” Your response even backs up my point about defensiveness. It’s one o...Jump to post

That's because they bake those fees into their overall fares.
Why is this a one way street? It is not a one way street. Customers do have protections when travel is disrupted or canceled, and most airlines do try to accommodate pax in such cases. Flight times though are not guaranteed and form no part of the contract between you and the airline. Here is AA Co...Jump to post

Interestingly I don't think Southwest is as cheap as it used to be. Maybe not, but their prices in California are pretty good. It is not hard to find $50-60 o/w fares LAX-SFO. That is with two free bags and at primary airports. That is hard to compete with $30 bags and (possibly) secondary airports.Jump to post
There seem to be a lot of outrage by Conservatives that the Trump presidency is being "undermined" by anonymous (read: Liberal) forces.

Personally I'm against naming anything against anyone living. It just seems like something akin to royalty. McCain has passed away, and the Trump comment was just a joke.

They pad their schedule ridiculously. So the argument against that is they hurt their own profit by increasing block time. Well they can increase the turnaround time instead of just padding schedule. But they choose not to do that so they can pad the a14 figures. What is the difference between padd...Jump to post

I really doubt MLB could make Denver work. The only reason ISP would ever start is if Frontier wants to rune Elite out of the market. But MCO is so close, and the MLB-ISP flights are only twice a week on CRJ-200's. I don't see it happening. I would usually agree with this, it crossed my mind due to...Jump to post
I think it makes sense to adjust the schedules to allow more connections in DEN. LAX and SFO will probably still be geared toward local traffic. What needs to change at DEN? It arrives at 7am or so and connects to a large 8-9am bank. To HNL it leaves at noon which accumulates connections from the 8...Jump to post

In my opinion, when somebody (family or not) books under a single PNR, the airline system should automatically block those seats together on the part of the plane they consider non premium.
