Man I remember prior to covid the 700 would always do a daily SEA-OAK-SEA turn. It was actually the second to last flight I ever took prior to stay at home orders, with my last flight being on no other than a Virgin America Cabin... so at least it was a good way to out.Jump to post
I flew the new interior on N929NK a few weeks ago, the interior felt like a great overall update (talking on LCC standards)
I did also make a video on it, back in May.
The entire Mexican aviation sector is a huge Telenovela. Aeromexico... Interjet.... Meanwhile Viva and Volaris (the airlines Mexicans hate the most but also fly the most because they're cheap and convenient) are soaring.Jump to post
Speaking of B6, It seems as if their daily FLL turn returns August 1st, but this time with an early morning turn instead of the usual late night turn.
B6529 Departs [email protected]:20 arrives [email protected]:25

I believe one of the grounded A321NEOs was the one that suffered damage after a landing?Jump to post
I am surprised Aeromexico wasn’t able to make a profit on SAN-MEX with all the wealthy Mexican businessmen living in San Diego and Coronado. For a time, Aeromexico had their own ticketing office on Broadway in Downtown San Diego. I believe that closed in 2013. Not exactly sure what caused them to d...Jump to post
It's really hard to tell, since they did buy VX for their SFO network, but at the same time they seem to be focusing more on OAK and SJC traffic. Although who knows, maybe with the arrival of OW they might even rival to a small extent United's network at SFO.Jump to post
So, is it safe to assume this is a major F bomb towards Delta and their LATAM partnership.
That aside, I got AA PL and Alaska MVP Gold status, so this may mean I might finally reach upper tear next year, this is amazing news.
Some of you haven't endured Mexico city Airport the way I have and it shows. Yes the airport has a good variety of shops, but during peak hours, its impossible to even find a seat, find a charging station, or find a store with less than 15. people in line. Then don't get me started with the arrival....Jump to post
Starting off 2020 with some good news, while booking flights, I just realized American will re-start JFK service some time in January, As I am currently booked on a flight on the 18th. The schedule will be the following.
AA2458 departs SAN at 7:25AM, arriving at JFK at 15:43PM.
Original A321 models weren't exactly the best performance-wise, which is why, while good, had a pretty slow start, especially in the US when only US airways and Spirit operated them. It was after airbus introduced sharklets and other cost saving measures which started the pre NEO boom, starting with...Jump to post
I had a picture that I can't seem to find right now, but a while ago American switched their shade of grey on their new livery. As I flew on an A321 which had a spare part put in which had a slightly lighter shade of gray then the rest of the plane.Jump to post
Both Turkish airlines and La Compagnie (not sure if other airlines) have opted on deactivating and blocking 3R/L, which basically means they're operating their A321s with 4 exit doors and 4 overwing exit doors.Jump to post
Not sure if it’s a permanent change or a one-time substitute, but Delta 1079 from Seattle to SAN today was an A220. Usually an A320. Considering the nearly 4 hour delay, my guess is this was a one time sub. But know who knows, maybe it worked for Delta to test our the A220 in SAN. Also, does anyone...Jump to post
Here's a video I made on the inaugural flight of the NEO, which includes a tour of the Phase 2-style interior.
I second those suggestions but add the Holiday Inn in Acapulco. Super rooms with a fabulous panoramic view of the bay while in bed for a little over $100 a night. That same experience in Hawaii would be $300-400 a night and wouldn't include a buffet breakfast. There was lots of police presence in t...Jump to post
Why would Virgin want to fly to Bogota, Panama and Mexico City ? Sydney, Capetown, Peking, Austin and Buenos Aires are understandable. Tokyo would be priority one today. Chicago should be viable but with America's two biggest airlines there its a challenge and has proved to be in the past for Virgi...Jump to post
To anyone else taking part in any of the MD80 flights tomorrow, what gate were you assigned for your arrival into DFW?
As currently, my 9:30 arrival from ABQ is scheduled to arrive into A13, I want to see if AA will get them all parked near each other
As someone who flies both JetBlue and Delta often, sure JetBlue doesn't offer first class on many routes, but their free snacks, free wifi, free live tv, and great legroom makes up for it. Their mint routes, those cuts don't affect my will to keep flying them any more, since these are for the most p...Jump to post
So do you guys know if American or DFW will plan anything special for the day? Unfortunately I didn't get a ticket on AA80, but I did get a ticket on the last revenue pax flight into DFW, being the Albuquerque flight. I'm hoping to arrive to a celebration tbh. They did for the 727 in MIA back in 20...Jump to post

I don't like the president neither any of his actions... but as rather "random" as this idea sounds, I'd totally back this up. Especially since we'll finally have another flag carrier, and even better, One World.Jump to post
Also do keep in mind that the LH group is requiring that all of their airlines now have white engines to simplify substitutions and help out during maintenance issues. That way one spare fits all (aircraft/engine-wise). So as sad as I am to say this, I'm afraid this might be (or might be close) the ...Jump to post
Why not just sue American, I mean weren't they the ones who gave Boeing the idea of the 737 MAX?Jump to post
Well that just threw a major curve ball to my plansJump to post
Yeah its alright, thank you so much for taking the time to do this. I'm definitely in love with those wooden finishes JetBlue installed in the Pantry. Gives the cabin a more warmer feeling. Thanks again, can't wait to see this for myself some dayJump to post
I have some photos of the interior. But I don’t know how to post pics from a mobile device Do you have Imgur? upload them through there, and paste the shareable forum link. Or post them on twitter? I can try the imgur route later when I have time. Hey man did you ever figure out how to upload the p...Jump to post
They clearly missed an opportunity with the SAN-LAS market, now that Delta Spirit and Frontier have all successfully entered the market. From what I’ve noticed here in SAN, Alaska focuses more on the north-south corridor while southwest is more focused on the west to east corridor. While Alaska also...Jump to post

Why does AA sometimes fly 757s to PHX? Wouldn't it make more sense to operate a A321 or a A320 and save the 757s for where their performance and range is a must? From my limited knowledge, I believe is because these 757s arrive from Hawaii in the early morning, and their next turn isn't till around...Jump to post
