Virgin Atlantic has applied for LHR slots to launch TPA. Hopefully they get ‘em and follow through! https://mobile.twitter.com/IshrionA/status/1539520638502809602?cxt=HHwWhMC95aX3vN0qAAAA Sure hope so.

It's for all of those reasons that a fourth runway will always elude PHX. There's just nothing to be gained. Also because Honeywell is going nowhere, but that's a different story. If anything, a fourth parallel will help the city of Phoenix get rid of the seedy establishments along Van Buren & ...Jump to post

Air Transat is returning to TPA in December with a 2x weekly YUL nonstop via an A321.

Just for the record, Avianca Brazil, when in operation, wasn't a part of Avianca but shared the name and the owner? That's correct.

I suspect this mother-son relationship isn't going to be rosy in the future. From the article, she thinks her son looks "Hawaiian", even though the father is African-American.
She rejected an attempt for her son to join a mentorship program geared at young African-American males.
Fascinating video from 1975 on how flight simulators from that era were used. I knew flight sims were in use during this time, I just did not know what pilots would see outside the cockpit - it's cool to see how that was set up. Also interesting to see motion hydraulic technology in use at the time....Jump to post
So, instead of defending their stand on taking away rights from women, the right has pivoted to "the leak" and complaining about "the leak" instead of crowing about getting what they want That's all they can afford to do. They know it's a big negative going into the mid-terms. T...Jump to post

default airliners got much better from the junk they gave us in FSX and earlier, but theyre still pretty bad.

Saw in a recent JFK spotting video on YT that the Terminal 4 concourse A extension work has started.

I think at this point, F9 sees that it wins if Jetblue buys NK, since they will no longer have ULCC competition in many markets. Why would they raise their bid?

Does WN really need a presence at SFO in addition to OAK and SJC, or could WN pull out of SFO and consolidate its San Francisco Bay Area presence to OAK and SJC? Were the reductions related to BA/B construction? You'd think WN would be motivated to increase flights following the completion of BA/B.Jump to post

FWIW, TPA has also been experiencing similar issues with containing airlines at one airside.

Seriously though... the thought of government-sponsored censorship on this level and scale is hair-raising to anyone with a minimal knowledge of history.
The best solution would be to convert NAS Key West to a Joint use facility with a modern commercial terminal with room for more aircraft. Parking, pickup and rental could shuttle off site if they aren't able to allocate adequate space in a publicly accessible area. They could then use the existing ...Jump to post
I'm really stymied on how Florida could consider math books to contain CRT topics.
I grew up on the Florida public school system in the 90s - I took the required math courses. Math problems are quite objective - I really do not get this.

Been noticing on the online FIDS that AA is using bag carousels 7 & 8 in the Domestic North Terminal, which are the units on the main landside floor and not the ground-level belts that AA uses for T-gate arrivals. Are these ground-level belts going away post T-north expansion?Jump to post
