I’m curious if there’s any WN pilots here than can chime in. Typically if an airport is not defined in your OpSpecs as an alternate airport, you don’t have charts for that airport. At least that’s how it is at my airline. I am not a pilot so maybe this is a dumb question, but with electronic chart ...Jump to post
They landed. Passengers disembarked. Passengers bussed the 25 mins to ATL. If you look at a tracking website, you’ll see it circled ATL half a dozen times. Divert to a further airport, wait, and potentially cancel or divert close by that is easily with a quick drive. Hmmmmm... If they that easily h...Jump to post
[twoid][/twoid] What spell has Mitsubishi cast upon Mesa to get this? Mesa has a large fleet of 175s that is getting larger and the E2 would make more sense. I guess buying the supply chain for the CRJ paid off for Mitsuibishi! Im not bashing the MoU, in fact I'd love to see more orders from underdo...Jump to post

Alaska ending MCI-SFO/SAN explains why they just moved from Terminal B to Terminal C. The announcement said they were “right-sizing” space available. So by cutting 50% of their destinations out of KC, this makes sense.Jump to post

WN announced today that it is going to be permanently discontinuing BOS-MCI nonstop service after January 5, 2020. DL (YX) 3x daily has the MCI-BOS demand covered. Business travelers would much prefer the E175 (especially with First Class) compared to the 737 anyway. Wouldn’t be surprised if WN dro...Jump to post
YX also has 100 EJets on order. The older Compass birds, along with the UA 170s, will be replaced. I doubt it. I still have my money on them spending the 100K per plane to upgrade the FMS's and put them at AA as 65 seaters replacing the 170's with new 175SC's. I've not heard about this FMS issue be...Jump to post
9 is enough for Aspen. UA has more Aspen flights. Thats why there are 19 left for them... Its not whether or not it is enough for ASE but rather whether the opportunity cost of serving ASE is greater than the opportunity cost of the services possible if they switched to CR9/E75s (70 seat versions o...Jump to post
So all the pieces have fallen into place, in terms of what is moving where. GoJets has a net loss of 20 CR7, with the 7 CR9 remaining on contract for now at Delta. 13 of the 20 CR7 go to Endeavor, with the remainder being replaced by 175SC at Skywest. Compass has a net loss of 36 175s, 30 going to ...Jump to post
Well the worst kept secret is finally out. Compass knew its days were numbered for at least a year, if not more. Flying in the US West will be so much more pleasurable and reliable with Compass out of the DL system. I agree. Operationally they're a nightmare. As someone else said, though, really lo...Jump to post

Would be nice to see Dubuque, IA (DBQ) chosen. They’ve been trying to add another carrier for years after DL/NW dropped the MSP route. AA seems to do okay with 3 (sometimes 4) flights to ORD.Jump to post
Republic (YX) is opening a BOS crew base Dec 1 to support Delta flying. Expect further DL expansion and growth in their newest hub. Wow expansion AND growth, I wonder if the ticket prices will be low and cheap or the delays few and sparse, I know they make and print money there so they say. But rem...Jump to post
This has huge implications in the ACMI world. Mesa is a notorious bottom-of-the-barrel airline. They are known to undercut everyone in the regional world, and you can bet they will do the same thing in the cargo world. Their 175 CA’s make 25% less per hour than other regional CA’s ($99/hr at YX vs $...Jump to post
Even at full reverse only on one side there’s not really a large yaw force, the engines don’t have a huge lever arm and reverse thrust really doesn’t give you a whole ton of braking power in the first place. The brakes are far more effective at bringing the airplane to a stop. You can lose both sys...Jump to post

Seeing how United and Delta have been dumping CRJ-700s from their regional partners and AA has been picking them up, can we expect to see AA take over the Republic E170s and put 65 seats in them? They don’t really fit the scope of DL and UA well but might be perfect for AA’s network. That is indeed...Jump to post

There are some stunning beaches off of 30A (Seaside area) with white sand and crystal clear water.

If I had to guess, there’s 2 possible options:

UA drops ORD-YOW/TUS/JAN and IAH-CRW/CAE/LEX. Beginning to wonder if all that talk about beefing up the domestic hubs only applies to DEN. What a joke, eh? Not a way to build a hub.

It's pretty sad when China and the Cayman Islands ground the MAX, but nothing has been done regarding safety here in the US.

Has there been another type of aircraft that has killed this many people so shortly after entry into service? In 1964-65 the 727 had a horrible safety record at first. Let’s count the number of accidents as opposed to people. Reason is the mid 1960s had load factors in the 50% range. Had the 727s b...Jump to post

I don’t know how to post pics, but there’s an aerial photo that was posted on one of the pilot forums showing the track of the plane in the snow.
They weren’t even close to the runway, and extremely lucky no one died or was seriously injured. This is 100% an accident.
