Since this was a diversion for a flight from one country to another and landing in a third, how were the passengers processed? Does Nassau airport have a secure holding facility so that passengers would not have to enter and exit the country? IDK about how it would be handled, although I will say t...Jump to post
Also, looking at FlightRadar24 and aa.com's booking/seatmap, it's still showing a 772? https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/aa220 They just changed it back to the 777-200. This just seems very last minute and stupid of AA to make this change last minute and have everyones seats change. Someti...Jump to post
As suspected, the China charters are completely dead for 2019. Reason cited is the slowdown of the Chinese economy and tourism as a result of the US-China trade war. Also, a deal to allocate aircraft for the flights could not be secured. https://www.post-gazette.com/business/development/2019/08/09/...Jump to post
The drive from Cleveland to Pittsburgh is not bad at all. You can get from Cleveland to Beaver in almost the same amount of time it takes to get from Beaver to downtown. Really? Even from northern Beaver County, it's probably twice as long to get to CLE is it is to get to Downtown Pittsburgh. You'r...Jump to post

How many CR9s will PSA be operating once they receive the last of the 15 new ones?
They’ll be operating 69 CR9s once all 15 are delivered.
As someone who works in the operation of a major airline and as a former FA scheduler, 8 hours of rest isn’t much, and should be raised. That said, it’s pretty rare that we get FA’s that go down to that FAR min without being of their own choosing. It happens, but it’s not often.Jump to post
If you’re coming into 28L at PIT, you get a pretty decent overfly of the triangle on your base turnJump to post

Nikki Haley chimes in: Flight delayed yesterday morning. Flight cancelled last night. We had to take the train and didn’t get in until 2:30am.

Was eating at Fuzzy’s across from love field and saw N767MW rocketing out of DAL and almost shat myself, cannot remember the last time I saw a 76 take off from DAL since I moved down to Dallas, if ever.

Air test after completion of interior installation. It's been there for 4.5 years (!) and hasn't flown since February 2014. Final delivery to the Ministry of Finance must be imminent.

Speaking of PIT-PHL, I flew on the 4pm inbound last Monday onboard an E190 and boy were there a ton of non-revs on the flight ranging from flight attendants to airport staff to even some pilots. All leftovers from the US hub at PIT. I can't believe after all of these years they are still able to ma...Jump to post

Wonder why JL did exceptionally well, esp. versus KE

Not to be be negative here because I, too, am a resident of Pittsburgh and love it here, but why would any airline waste a valuable LHR slot by running a flight to PIT? The biggest plane we could probably fill across the pond would be a 752, which seems unlikely to compete with a widebody from any ...Jump to post

Am I the only one that's surprised CUN hasn't taken that much of a dip with all of the recent news surrounding violence in the area? Believe me I'm ecstatic that PIT-CUN has another airline on it, but I'm surprised. What's going on in CUN? I am going there next month. Anything to share? I just got ...Jump to post
I would rather UA get their SFO flight to year round versus Spirit coming in to muck that one up. Honestly, you couldn't pay me enough to fly NK under any circumstances (sorry, too loyal to WN, especially since WN flies to most of the same destinations as NK). I'm generally an AA loyalist, but I've...Jump to post
I know I'm going to get blasted for this, but isn't that the point of working at Spirit? If Spirit paid DL/AA/UA rates for flying the A320 family wouldn't they go out of business pretty fast? Great management doesn't generate a low-cost structure by paying employees the lowest rates. Exactly, great...Jump to post
I flew NK DTW-DFW-DTW in late June. Every NK pilot I saw at either airport had their badges on an ALPA-provided "Fair Contract Now" lanyard. The two sides are in negotiations. As it stands, the NK pilots are currently without a contract and are the lowest-paid A320 family pilots among all...Jump to post
