Which is how it started operating the CRJ-700s for America West. Operating CRJ-700s for anyone on the Mesa certificate would have violated one of the other scope clauses (US or UA), so Freedom Airlines was created. Before Freedom, Mesa had purchased a (Continental) MD-80 to operate in Mesa branded o...Jump to post

I believe JetsuiteX is also buying/leasing ERJ-135's. The Contour E-135's are pretty nice with just 30 seats in them! I've flown them a couple of times so far. All the airplanes were on lease. JetSuite X bought the two newer ERJ-145s. The other two are still owned by European interests. Really? The...Jump to post

I am a little confused about the A321neo designations. So does both the standard A321-200neo with ACF cabin option and the A321-200LR neo both get designated as -NX even though they are different models/types? They aren't different models/types. "ACF", "LR", "XLR" are ...Jump to post
This seemed to slip through the cracks yesterday:
Rescue plane sent from PHX in the afternoon. N673AW still at Yuma as of Tuesday AM.
The confusion existed when Aersale owned Xtra Airways. It would buy airplanes and apply "XA" registrations even though they were never intended for service with Xtra. That particular airplane was registered that way 18 months ago, a couple months before Xtra was sold.Jump to post
Ashley Air is a charter broker. It appears that it will now have its own certificates.Jump to post

It was owned in the past by Southwest and the Bank of Utah is now the owner as of 5/31/2018. This is also a 1996 -300 series so a later build as well. Bank of Utah, was not the owner, but the Trustee for a foreign entity or for an owner who cares not to share its identity with you. Nonetheless, N63...Jump to post
Jetblue just took delivery of their first A321 NEO without the 2L/R door.
I guess Pan Am's inaugural of New York-Moscow service in July 1968 wouldn't be considered "opening of Soviet/Russian airspace to American airlines". Transpacific flying is another matter.Jump to post

FR24 says it’s now scheduled to fly EWR-SMF later tonight. Really?? It would have, if the original airplane had made the scheduled return from IAH to EWR. You can't totally rely on future flight information from the "tracking" sites, particularly with irregular ops (i.e. you have to under...Jump to post
The only ones that I can pick up on are how some low flight numbers (roughly the range of WN1 through WN30-WN40 - give or take a few numbers) are assigned to flights which operate "Herb's Original Triangle" (DAL-HOU, DAL-SAT, HOU-SAT), but could be attached to other segments (WN1 is the f...Jump to post

Referring to Wayex, “Netters”, aren’t there airlines using the PC12? I’m confused by the quote used from Tecnams site. I’m afraid I’m not up to knowing the details here. I'm not too savvy of the US regulations, so I'm sure others will let us know. However, the PC12 is a single turbo-prop, and I und...Jump to post
Technically, those are not Delta airplanes. They were sold to a leasing company which leases them to a trust controlled by the NBA. Delta operates those airplanes under a CMI arrangement.Jump to post
Are these retirements contingent on the MAX8 coming back? Those airplanes are in the schedule on September 4.Jump to post
LOL ... nearly choked on my beer on this response ... P2012 has 11 passenger seats plus 2 in the cockpit ...

Does the FAA monitor these type of aircraft like they do a scheduled airline ? These are passangers carrying planes which should be subject to strict inspections by the FAA. The oversight by regional FSDOs into any for hire operation is low at best. There are plenty of passenger charter firms who p...Jump to post
So what is the difference between the 747-100B and the 747-200B?

Every spec sheet I’ve seen on the VC-25 aircraft refers to them as a “heavily modified 747-200B”. Upon further research, the only information I’ve found about the “B” designation is on the -100 and it refers to a MTOW increase. My questions are: does the B just signify an increased MTOW, was there ...Jump to post

Given the 0645 departure time, I'm sure it's one of the birds that comes in from Hawaii at 0-dark-30. No, the earliest Hawaii flight gets in just before 6am, so your airplane will be here overnight.

I'm sorry you guys, but....is it really THAT hard???? Well, it's obviously not that clear.

Short version? Mismanagement and an egomaniacal union leader whose actions lead the company into the hands of a feckless corporate raider. Nobody won, except the corporate raider.
