Re: How was WN able to grow in DEN so quickly?

Interesting Denver aviation fact: Southwest began service at Denver Stapleton in mid-1980s then withdrew (unsure how long Southwest stayed there) It wasn’t long. If I recall, for a long time, wasn’t that the only station Southwest had ever closed? (Long before they acquired AirTran and closed a bun...

Re: What got you into aviation?

First flight at age 9, almost 10, April 1990. AA Super 80 CLE-DFW and a DC-10 DFW-HNL. I kind of liked the 10 but got really claustrophobic on the Mad Dog. But as a kid, I always had a tendency to learn all about things I was afraid of. So I started getting books about planes and was a total enthusi...

Air taxi simulation game?

Hi, everyone -- I like to play airline business simulation games (Airline on my computer and Air Tycoon on my phone) and I'm looking for something similar that would simulate on-demand air taxi or charter services with very light jets or prop planes. I've seen a few different ones -- Air Hauler 2, F...

Re: MEM Announces OneJet service to PIT and KCI

As they start looking more like JetsuiteX and Ultimate, I’m curious: do they see an advantage to operating from a main terminal rather than an FBO? The only one I can think of is that FBOs can be a little more hidden and harder for ground transport to access at bigger airports with existing traditio...

Re: N7874 drawing the shape of a 787 in the sky

I think there was a post here during 747-8 flight testing where they drew the numbers 747 across the country. They might have done that during earlier 787 tests as well. If they have to do a long test flight, it has to beat flying around in boring circles.

Re: Airline frequencies in the 1980's/90's

One reason: increased security screening and arrival rigamaroles (waiting for bags, securing ground transport, schlepping through the terminal either on arrival or departure) makes shorter flights less worthwhile for O&D passengers. And if there's a connection involved, there's always the risk o...

Calm Air ATR at Cleveland (BKL)

Hi, all! Long time lurker; first time poster. I was getting on the Shoreway in Cleveland on Sunday and was surprised to get a quick glimpse of an ATR-42 sitting on the BKL ramp. That evening, I checked Flightaware and found that a Calm Air ATR was operating BKL-GRR-YWG. The plane seems to have come ...
