Two beautiful people who added much to our world. God rest their souls.
Have you ever heard of "insider trading"? Google that. Doing that can get you a long chunk of time in a very secure place, with all expenses paid for by the federal government. It's called prison! And, insider trading is just one of the charges that can get you sent there for doing what yo...Jump to post

While driving through pouring rain & lightning at CVG on Tuesday, July 30, I saw that FedEx had two aircraft standing on their ramp, which is located at the old DHL facility. I know that FedEx has flown one widebody Airbus A300 and/or an A310 between CVG & MEM each day for many years. So, wh...Jump to post
Well, there is a British documentary about aviation in Russia, called Airplaneski . There are a number of instances cited in the documentary about things happening that would not likely ever happen on a Western carrier, such as a flight crew taking up a collection from passengers to pay for a replac...Jump to post
AA is starting daily seasonal service to PHX from CVG on an A319 running December 18- April 6! Super excited about this one!!

Having worked (twice) at CVG & still flying through there from time to time, I can answer your question about the former hubs. Would they have benefited from such a rule? Emphatically, NO! Had such a rule been in place back in the early 1980s, CVG never would have become a Delta / Comair hub. Co...Jump to post
This guy comes off as extremely entitled. Why is that? What do you expect, when he describes himself at the end of his rant like this . . . . . .

I'm surprised the USDOJ didn't use one of their own aircraft That's a good question, Infiniti. I am a bit familiar with the DOJ's airline--aka "Con Air"--as I have seen their 727s from time to time at LEX. However, with El Chapo's history of brutality and bloodthirstiness, plus his pencha...Jump to post
I ran across an article yesterday, about the possibility of Air France & KLM flying to Delta focus cities, like CVG, in 2020. I love the photo that backs the article's headline, but I was disappointed with the article itself because I didn't think it told me anything new. But, I could have misse...Jump to post
Back to the OP's question, I know for a fact that Delta flew Boeing 737-200s ordered directly from Boeing because I flew on several of them out of CVG & LEX. I also know that DL acquired some 737-300s from WA & I think that Delta acquired a few Boeing 737-200s from Western, too.Jump to post
There is no way a hypothetical Disney Airlines will survive. MCO is too competitive of a market. there's an airfield about 2 miles from magic kingdom. can you imagine getting off a plane pretty much directly into MK? No one has mentioned here yet that there WAS a STOLport at Walt Disney World when ...Jump to post
Maybe see some revival of a few of the old DL routes from CVG to Europe? :) :) Some of them, but certainly not all of them. Let's take a look . . . AMS, CDG - Forget those, they are SkyTeam fortress hubs. FCO - Too far, especially flying the return westbound. But, maybe CIO, in time (but no time so...Jump to post
GRR has been doing really well lately! You ain't kidding! I was just through GRR, a quick in-and-out trip for family business back on June 6-8, on Southwest. I was amazed at the loads on both the inbound & outbound flights. There were very few empty seats on both flights. It is obvious that GRR...Jump to post
Asked an AA ticket agent at SDF how the new nonstop LAX flight was doing and she said "Really, really well. Seats are definitely getting filled." I searched the seat maps on Expert Flyer and the weekend flights have almost always been completely sold out both ways (when searching after ch...Jump to post
How long before the NTSB Go Team arrives on site?
RIP to the pilot. Godspeed to the pilot's family, friends & loved ones.
There are some WN stations not currently served by NK such as MDW, DAL, HOU, ISP, LGB, MHT, ONT, PVD, SNA, SFO, SJC, DCA, and IAD that are near airports served by NK. Most of these WN stations are far enough from nearby NK stations to support nonstop service to leisure destinations on WN. Please ad...Jump to post

The Germans are just as disgusted--even more so--than the rest of the world about BER. Check this website out . . .
It is in German only, but Google Translate does a good job for me.
ITO was always a poor performer from the mainland. To much rain and few significant resorts compared to other areas of the islands. Predict this won't last long. With apologies to coach Lee Corso, "Not so fast, my friend!" It's true that ITO was the only other gateway to the mainland besi...Jump to post
Regarding PAX load, I used to wonder why someone doesn't configure an A380 or two in a single-class arrangement to seat 800, like for Hajj flights. But, if it is hard to find enough people to fly in the plane with it's current configuration, where are you going to find 800? One other thing, I was do...Jump to post
During the Cold War, all of these carriers--KL, LH & AY--did quite a bit of business behind the Iron Curtain, so I am not surprised that they now ply their trade in the airspace of the Hermit Kingdom. BTW, which ATC Center do they contact while flying over NK?Jump to post
That Ultimate survives and makes money year after year shows how it can be done if the situation is right. That is quite true. Amazing, since Ultimate's Cincinnati flights operate from "Sunken Lunken" (LUK) instead of CVG. But, some other airlines continue to serve their corner of the wor...Jump to post
Interesting. Until now, I was rooting for Spirit (NK) to consider inaugurating service to DAY. Now, I'm not so sure. If the Greater Cincinnati Tri-State metro area continues to grow, NK may eventually take a look at CVG if it suits their aims. That may happen someday, but I don't think that it will ...Jump to post
Bryan, I'm sorry that some of our posters here are more interested in exchanging "pleasantries" than answering your question. Since CVG is my hometown airport, I can agree with the earlier posters who said that you are likely to see DHL aircraft at CVG. I think that early mornings are the ...Jump to post
I do not think that scheduled airline service will ever return to INT. I do remember fondly reading about Piedmont's service in & out of the Smith Reynolds Airport (INT) in Winston-Salem in Piedmont's system timetables. At the same time back in the day, I remember reading Allegheny's (later USAi...Jump to post
Updated figures for CAK from the airport's website: - 2018 total passengers: 920,002 (-27.3% YOY) - January 2019 total passengers: 64,042 (-14.3% YOY) I'm sorry to see that news, Sarge. I have made numerous VFR flights over the years to visit my people in Akron, Norton & Wadsworth. I always pre...Jump to post
I remember the 757s at MDW. 727-200s, too. But, I think that the chances of an airline starting widebody service at Midway are about as good as the rebuilding & reopening of Meigs Field is.Jump to post

I'm sorry to see that airline traffic at DAY is winding down. My hope was that NK would take a look at the region & decide to serve DAY, since G4, F9 & WN now all serve CVG. However, it appears that a number of posters seem to think that NK would do O.K. at CVG. CVG is my hometown airport, b...Jump to post
