Re: DELTA Engine Failure , Emergency Landing in the Bahamas (N335NW / DL651)

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...

Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2019

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/...

Re: No flat bed on Norwegian

Short answer: no.

Long answer: Lie flats increase cost, and as a low cost carrier, cutting cost is key. Also, lie flats take up space that could be used for additional recliner seats like they currently have.

Re: Delta allegedly lobbying against new FAA rest rule for cabin crew

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.
