So the 5 designs have been unveiled... any thoughts on them? Personally I think design 3 or 1 are the nicest, and calatrava’s (5) being the one I would want the least.
Just passed through O’Hare on January first. In UA’s C concourse some gate areas are closed for renovations. The pictures show extensions/modernization of the gate area, and has 787’s parked on it. Are these modifications allowing 787’s to park at T1 now or is it just UA marketing? Does anyone have ...Jump to post
Neither EWR nor SFO are major hubs for another of the major international carriers. ORD is a major hub for both AA and UA, and thus is running at pretty much full capacity. Until the expansion is complete there will be no major increases except for maybe some short haul upgauging and frequency. In t...Jump to post
If you haven't been paying attention to the route "announcements" of China Southern Airlines you'd be forgiven; it seems that with Chinese carriers planned new routes amount to little more than wish lists. Several months back Sichuan Airlines announced its intentions of beginning service ...Jump to post
I was at ORD this afternoon. Driving in was impossible, as I-190 was completely flooded and blocked at Mannheim. Total chaos on the streets, we ended up parking the car at Rosemont and taking the blue line into the airport. We left downtown around 2:40 and didn’t get into the airport until almost 5:...Jump to post
Finally, the T5 expansion was suppose to be underway already, what happened there? Maybe, they figured it would be more cost effective if major construction started all at once, so they delayed T5 until work can begin on the rest of the terminals. That’s just speculation, but it might make sense. A...Jump to post
I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that the reason the ATS is taking so long is because of they are replacing all the tracks, not just extending. I’m not an expert by any means, and I’m not familiar with Chicagoan politics, but I see that a lot of you guys are pretty negative when it comes to the time...Jump to post
My prediction: All non stop services go premium heavy. One stopper/two stopper services downgraded to Scoot I sincerely doubt that. The US is a large and pretty untapped market for SQ, so downgrading most flights to Scoot will remove its brand Identity from the market. When people fly SQ, they fly ...Jump to post
In case anyone's wondering, the trigger for automatic construction of Sat 3 is ORD yearly pax count of 101,500,000. On a (hopefully) lighter note: obviously, the TAP includes fire detection/suppression systems for the terminals; I'm hoping the firm from BBI hasn't heard. Hopefully they’ll pull that...Jump to post
All of Denver would be sucked into a black hole formed by the singularity created once UA is surpassed. Colorado would implode, causing a massive seismic shift that causes Yellowstone to erupt, forever ending the United States of America as the country is buried in 10 meters of ash. In all seriousne...Jump to post
I’m also curious about the ATS. Are the actually trains being upgraded to something new? Or are they still gonna use the blah trains we have now. I’d love to see some futuristic ATS system zipping around the airport. This combined with improved stations is imperative as a lot of traffic will be redi...Jump to post
I kinda like it, kinda. It seems very QR to me. Apparently the animal on the tail is called a Markhor and is the national animal of the nation I actually like the PIA tail you have as your avatar. Thanks! It was a part of a concept livery I created for the PIA livery Competition http://i.imgur.com/...Jump to post
I have a feeling that since the master plan shows L being demolished along with H/K there will eventually be a third phase that redevelops that whole area but it's not in the current proposals because it would be purely for net expansion compared to the current plan which is as much about rebuildin...Jump to post
When BA adds DTW, ORD will be gutted as it lives on DTW, CLE, CVG, CMH, IND, STL, MCI, DSM, MSP, and MKE leakage, but 90% from DTW! At best ORD-LHR is a BA 757 route, less than daily. If that were the case why don’t people fly DL to LHR straight from DTW? Also, why is the 3rd largest population cen...Jump to post
According to Chicago tribune article, it seems like the only international partners going to the Global Terminal would be BA, JL, ANA, and LH. This seems like too few, especially if ALL the OW and Star partners are supposed to relocate. I would assume at least CX, TK, QR, and EK would also join them...Jump to post
My guess is that the airline chose these colors to align better with QR, and also not to rip directly from AZ’s red and green livery. Maybe they’ll switch colors if AZ goes under.
I wonder what this livery could look like in italian red and green...
I like it. Yes its simple, and albeit kind of boring, but it is also very business-like, and German.
Seems to me like a perfect rebrand for an airline like LH, as it all just looks professional.
What is with everyone complaining about Euro white? I find those cheat lines incredibly dated, especially with the aircraft we have today, as they become sleeker and sleeker. Cheatlines looked good on aircraft of the past, minimalist and abstract designs look great on the elegant aircraft of today. ...Jump to post
I doubt it. When in NYC all you see are united ads saying that EWR is a better option than JFK. They advertise that EWR is a minute closer on average than JFK from Manhattan, and stuff like that. Seems to me that if they were planning on going back to JFK they would cut the ads.Jump to post
To be fair I dont think it was a 'certain' order at all.Airbus wouldn't have been 'threatening ' closure of the line if it was a slam dunk. I note as others have done that Airbus has emphasised how long the line will now remain open.It sounds like this will/should take them through to where all the...Jump to post

I have heard that it's just going to be a variation of the current one. The yellow of the logo will disappear and be replaced by silver, much like the logo of their business class lounge. Official presentation should be on February 8th or 9th Yep, same thing I heard: only grey/silver crane, no ring...Jump to post
Will we see the O’Hare 21 plan for the terminal renovation? I’m really excited to see renders of what the new terminal(s) will look like. Also, what things under construction will open in 2018?

I don’t think airbus had that bad of a year in terms of WB. No colossal orders were won, but before they deliver 858 aircraft there are bound to be more orders. 777’s have yet to be replaced by most airlines, and when that day comes many airlines will turn to both the a359/a35K (this is just specula...Jump to post
Apparently you can’t see because DTW is all over the upgrades list. Jeremy Please help me out then were you see a DTW route up gauged from a narrow body.

I think Delta has a pretty predictable LH fleet going forward. Once the 777s are gone, we’ll see the a339, a359, and a potential a350-1000 order replace them and the higher end of the 767s. The rest will be with whatever MoM is or whatever Airbus may offer for that segment. How much of each? Well.. ...Jump to post

Rust belt city destined to die is not in the cards one way or another. Some expansion will be agreed upon but the demise of Chicago or ORD as a global gateway is not going to happen.

If we're mad that ORD is not a huge goliath of an airport unlike some others we could mention, let's face it, blame United Airlines. Face it.

My hopes are for a complete revamp of T2 and T3, with a major-ish facelift on T1 (updated interiors, new windows, and “small” stuff like that can go a long way to make it seem modern). I like the looks of T5 as it is now, with the different layout that changed a while ago. Hopefully a similar thing ...Jump to post
Interesting move, have we seen a firm business plan come out of IG?

Stunning. Can’t wait to see it in Delta’s livery, it’s also nice that the TATL segment will be getting some new aircraft (I fly this a lot and the 767s are the quite literally getting old).

According to the Reuters article, the 737 MAX, 787, and A330s will be supplied by Qatar to Meridiana to help it grow. Will also get a rebranding. I’m hoping that they buy the AZ name and transform into AZ, without the more negative aspects.Jump to post
This proposal is entirely realistic and not idealistic. Western access was a political ploy and never meant to actually happen. A full rebuild and reconfiguration is not needed badly at all. In today's presentation they mentioned that all of T1 needs a new roof which is no small feat. What remains ...Jump to post
This is gonna be interesting... I wonder if they are doing a general remodernization of the interiors of the existing terminals, maybe opening up T3 since it’s not changing much. It will be very interesting in 10 years to see what comes out of this.Jump to post
I guess Trudeau's decision to pander to his Quebec support base by bailing out Bombardier at the expense of the taxpayers in the rest of Canada did not pan out so well...

Boeing will end up paying the most in the end. Because what goes around comes around. As many have said, they’ve pissed off Canada and Delta, and that’s a start.

I’m in the JetBlue should stay camp. I’ve never flown them, but I’m itching to try it out. If they could expand into the Midwest, I’d fly them a hell of a lot more.
Once the a321Lr comes to them, It’s obvious that tatl will happen.
I agree with all that’s been said here. I don’t think we’ll see anything new until well after all of the in development aircraft are out and flying with the airlines.Jump to post
Just kill the airline and get on with it. AZ is a mess that cannot be fixed. All parties except the workers would be better off for it.

Of all the airlines mentioned, I think the best bets are IAG, LH, DL, and EY (in no particular order). If DL or EY can’t get full control because of the rule, then so be it. In my opinion if Lufthansa bought in to AZ and got complete control something could get done, but as others have stated, the u...Jump to post
