CAM sold 3 757s yesterday, N605DL, N620DL and N557CM, but I don't know to whom (went to trust). Swift N859AM started flying on Monday (probably should be in the DHL thread). All National tail numbers in recent years add up to a multiple of 9. The original 744s, 919CA and 952CA, of course, do not. Ar...Jump to post

Correct. Surf Air ordered ordinary Caravans. It will hold the STC for the hybrid modification.Jump to post
Envoy's aircraft 761 is out of the paint shop and has been ferried to ROW for final conformity checks.
So, at present, Cargo Aircraft Management has the following 767-300s unfinished: 6 aircraft at TLV for conversion (N432AX, N391AA, N398AN, N397AN, N396AN, N391CM [FADEC]) Noticed that N432AX was ferried to ROW for paint. Interesting that the trip over to TLV used OAE, but return used the N number.Jump to post
He mentions his company's relationship with Delta. I'm not sure how Delta management sees them as a partner vs a threat. The sale closed 18 months ago. From Forbes article December 2019: Terms were not disclosed, however, Wheels Up CEO Kenny Dichter said Delta will become his largest shareholder. D...Jump to post

$6.5 million to almost $9 million is QUITE the jump. Someone at Skywest wasn't thinking, and now they're flying at $0 subsidy?! Definitely fishy and improper.

Last month, Corvus applied to register the name Northern Pacific and deregister the name RavnAir Alaska. The DOT approved that today. They are deregistering ravn?! Lmao.

As for Moab, both SLC and DEN are subsidized (as of April 1). WYS is also subsidized to both SLC and DEN. This hasn’t been updated since March, so I may be totally wrong, but I was under the impression SLC from CNY was at risk. Though, to your point, now it’s 1x daily DEN and 1x daily SLC, so I gue...Jump to post
Won’t the eas just get canceled completely if there’s 2 carriers? No there’s still a contract. CNY is another good example - while OO flies both, the one to DEN is subsidized, the flight to SLC is not. I want to say WYS also is a double carrier route with one subsidized, but not sure Why would they...Jump to post
Swift/iAero leased N859AM yesterday. So this is a former AeroMexico B738. Is it in or scheduled for conversion? EDIT: Converted at MIA to freighter early this year, according to planespotters and ferried to GSO on 2 July Yeah, Planespotters doesn't pick up subtleties like the fact that Commercial J...Jump to post
I wonder as their fleet grows would they do a WN maneuver and add MHT to serve communities north of Boston like they are using PVD to cover communities south of Boston? They are shown with 8 E190s available but their flying to date is only with the 3 E195s. Folowing up on my earlier message, when a...Jump to post

Thanks for the corrections, with one minor hiccup. AirTran Florida Connection was ComAir. https://www.bizjournals.com/orlando/stories/1997/06/16/daily4.html Yes, you're right, Air Wisconsin flew for the ValuJet AirTran.

Republic was founded in 1974. But it was using the Chautauqua name until the late 90s when it restructured and used the Republic name for the holding company and made Chautauqua a subsidiary.

Ex Korean Air Cargo 747-400F N570B filed SBD-ANC 4:59PM - 8:32PM as JTN61 en route to DEL after maintenance. Let's see what's in store for this 30.2 year old veteran.

I'm sure someone will come up with the actual explanation and we'll all go, "Ooooooh. Duh." But right now -- weird.

They are losing their TBN-STL route. Didn't re-bid it. It can't bid it. It has to be operated as AEAS for which a grant is requested by the community (as opposed to a subsidy paid to an airline).

N570B (the aforementioned 744BCF) is not going to go to WGN, because as pointed out above, they only fly GEs. This could be for anybody else: Longtail, etc. Doubtful National, either, but we'll see.
