Hilarious/weird sounding thing I used to find when in PHX airport. In rental car shuttle there used to be announcement: “There are 2 terminals in this airport. Terminal 3 and Terminal 4”! It's still there... you'd think they could rename them. The original plan was to eliminate the numbers and go w...Jump to post
Callsign was CLPR91, operator Stanton Defense Industries. Interesting.

We know the 717s will be retired by 2025 (see link below). The pandemic and then the resulting increase in oil prices changed the economics. I suspect the shutdown really effected parts vendors; possibly to the point it isn't viable anymore as a large fleet, but I speculate. https://onemileatatime....Jump to post
The standard CRJ-900 takeoff weight is 80500 lb, with optional increases to 82500 and 84500 lb. Presumably, these are colloquially known as CRJ-900, CRJ-900ER and CRJ-900LR, respectively. Fuel capacity is always the same. The "NextGen" had a different interior, larger windows, and bigger o...Jump to post
Frontier is making some big changes including elimination of 32 domestic and 11 international routes. PWM loses RSW, TPA, FLL. PVD loses RSW and TPA. BOS, BDL, and PVD lose CUN. Will B6 or SWA pick up the lost routes? I don't believe F9 has flown BDL-CUN since May or June, B6 has been on the route ...Jump to post

JFK would've been better for international options. But this helps for Northeast centric connections.
One interesting thing I noticed when looking this up for another thread. AA has some really terrible timings for its first departure from PHX to a lot of major west coast cities. I also wondered this about PHX-JFK/EWR/BOS/WAS/MIA also depart at 9-10AM, how come there isn’t a 06:00AM bank? It's all ...Jump to post
ARX was the city code, BLM was (is) the FAA code. The other airline in the OAG listing is Vero-Monmouth (later Ocean Airways), which was based an Monmouth County. We do know that ARX, four miles west of town, closed either in 1977 or 1985 and BLM is still open. I dont think ARX would be both an air...Jump to post
Please post proof on Hawaiian having an east coast hub. It's not on any historical pages the airline or others have run. Hawaiian Air Cargo had an air cargo operation using Electras in the late 1970s. Based in in Macon GA, it was eventually sold to Zantop. That was the extent of it. See "From-...Jump to post
With the 787 deliveries likely to restart again, does anyone know the revised date for the Hawaiian 787 to be delivered? To my knowledge there’s only one that’s rolled out in full HA colors. Could they still cancel the 787 and revert back to the 330 if they wanted to? Hawaiian first quarter 10Q: In...Jump to post

Mid-airs typically aren't this close to landing so it'll be very interesting to see what the investigation reveals. Unfortunately I suspect there will be some blame shifted to the Tower. Probably not, unless it becomes a procedural matter. N97CX flew over the top to enter left traffic for 30L. Towe...Jump to post

DL may not dump OO, but the CRJ200s are on borrowed time. With all the legacies, not just DL.

I have been trying to figure this out, but to no avail. Yesterday, I noticed an aircraft identified as VQ-BHK in my ADS-B data. A Bermudan aircraft in Iowa? Turns out, this aircraft used to be with Aeroflot, but is now flying for Smartlynx Malta. I quickly checked and it was actually in Tenerife at...Jump to post
This is getting screwed up. DOT makes a distinction between "scheduled service" and "charters". It requires EAS to be " scheduled service". FAA has Part 135 (air taxi/commuter) which governs aircraft with 30 passenger seats or less, or Part 121 (air carrier). The caveat...Jump to post
That's not ideal departures for business trips and connections. Contour needs to be leaving at 6am if not earlier. Unless there is a gate issue in PHL and availability then I can imagine that's why they can't offer that. Alex Minimum crew rest time for the 8-ish pm arrival the night before. It's no...Jump to post
Could one of the US domestic airlines contract with a foreign airline for them to provide aircraft and crew to operate a flight on their behalf? Yes.

Part 380 is for Public Charters, which this is not. Cabotage is forbidden under 49 CFR 41703. In the OP example, although the flight would be operated under Lufthansa's German and FAA Part 129 certificates, it would still operate under United's DOT operating authority. Lufthansa has no operating aut...Jump to post

Was it even proven that Iceland air can operate flights in the US? I find it hard to believe.

Please excuse me if it's been discussed before; I used the search engine and found nothing. But I've been wondering about Silver's operation in the Caribbean.

Definitely didn't see that coming. Is there a big enough market to support daily service that isn't already driving to ABQ? I could see maybe enough for 3-4x weekly but daily seems a bit high.
I'm surprised. I guess I'd ask how is TOL different from CAK? CAK has AA service to CLT and DCA even with CLE's AA ops around 40 miles away. Probably lower margin flying that's utilizing resources that can be better used on more profitable markets. Might be different if PSA didn't have maintenance ...Jump to post
I'm very curious: why would a concourse east of T3N need to be accessed by buses? It won't be connected to either T3 or T4? If not, well, that's just plain stupid.

That "public charter can't codeshare" thing sure sounds like a myth to me.
