Not being alive at the time, I've always wondered why Braniff didn't use Chapter 11 to reschedule its debts and keep on flying, the way other airlines did subsequent to Braniff's fall? Braniff didn't have free cash to continue operating in Chapter 11. The Pritzker Group ended up buying it out of Ch...Jump to post
The route map surprised me, why would Braniff have several trans Atlantic routes out of BOS? In 1979 Braniff was in major expansion mode. It applied all of the foreign authorities it could, and received an exemption to operate the services from Boston. Apart from that, reading through this thread h...Jump to post
Southern is also NOW merging with Surf Air and going public, that's definitely going to change things. A lot. Apparently they are ordering a bunch of Caravan 208Ex's as well. Other way around. Surf Air Mobility went public through a SPAC, and acquired Southern Airways. Last year Surf Air acquired A...Jump to post
Does anyone know what aircraft COOL Air plans on using? I’ve heard 50 seaters, but do we know what type? I don't think COOL Air knows. It's not an airline entity, and the EAS application is materially deficient. If it were to apply for airline authority tomorrow (with all appropriate management pos...Jump to post

I don't think it's under EAS.

N225NE and N36NE (patriots planes) have also not flown at all. I know N36NE is exclusively for the team, but I know 225 flies charters as well. N36NE was in Peru for maintenance; it came back about a month ago. N225NE flew military charters out of RIV last week; it ferried back to MIA on Saturday.Jump to post
Hi, I am trying to ID a B737-400 seen at Mesa. I think it was active at that stage. It was in the old livery, (see below). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IAero_Airways I have narrowed it down to 4.

As you can see from the pictures, according to Flightradar24 BR66 today is flying, but according to the airline it has been cancelled.

Interesting they're going with a different contractor. Leesburg (JYO) as the test site has used Saab since testing started five or six years ago.

Actually, the city wants to make 7L/25R the same length as 8/26; it would need about another 800 feet east.

In this thread is discussed the strategic agreement that Cargojet has signed with DHL and some Cargojet's 767s are already wearing DHL's livery.

Several things. First of all the comment about the new arena hampering the possibility of the south runways being extended further East is complete nonsense.

Yes. The airplane is placed is a trust. The airplane owner is the grantor of the trust. The (US-based) bank or trust company is the trustee.Jump to post
I am very curious to see what happens with N251AU now that it is completed.

No AEAS grant application at either SOW or CEZ. And we won't see one since both communities have now recommended one of the existing EAS bids (9X at SOW and KG at CEZ).

This doesn't bode well for Kalitta, ABX or Atlas. Why? Kalitta apparently is dumping their 767s to focus on 777/747s for DHL. ABX and Atlas are doing just fine, but I don't think they are in any danger. DHL is expanding its air network pretty significantly and has committed to multiple carriers. Be...Jump to post
It’s not uncommon for Cargojet to take delivery of pre-conversion aircraft and store them for several weeks or longer in YHM while waiting for availability at the AMO.

The Canada Transportation Act requires any airline flying domestic routes in Canada to be at least 51% Canadian-owned (75% until 2018).
