I don't think it's fair to say "don't be cheap, pay for assigned seat!" when you normally have 2 choices, you either pay for it (fair enough) or take your chances at the airport. But this? it's practically forcing you to pay for the seat if you want to travel with your partner.Jump to post
If you are na Argentinan aviation enthusiast and defends that backwards aviation policy, things are even worse. Yes, I know Argentina and Aerolineas Argentinas. Argentina doesn´t even have an open skies agreement with neighbour countries because of AR, resulting in high fares. Lots of Argentinians ...Jump to post
Amazing how Argentinian aviation sector is underdeveloped... AEP with 11.6 milllion and EZE 9.8... the only 2 in the 30 in Latin America... I wonder why... Protecting some shitty government airline as Aerolineas Argentinas = making Argentina some 20 years behind the rest of the region... Yeah, it's...Jump to post
I haven't reviewed the full context of this info, but the GAO, in one of their regular DoD program reviews, has a table comparing the initial projected cost and current cost of several in-progress acquisition programs. See page 190 here: http://www.gao.gov/assets/680/676281.pdf The programs that sh...Jump to post
So basically, what you guys are saying is that both systems should live together for the time being. Get the digital BP, but in case you run out of battery, have a cracked screen, the reader doesn't work, or even don't own a smartphone, you can always rely on paper BPs.Jump to post
I think a different thread is deserved as to how AR will respond to all this. On the Austral side of the house, there are some indications the airlines may be thinking of moving on up to something larger and with a more reasonable CASM. Right now, the 26 E190 do a wonderful job, but with all the ne...Jump to post
I really like what Chinese carriers do to their liveries. Said no one ever.
So if I understand it right, the whole fleet will have that quirky livery? then instead of sub fleets they'll also have sub liveries?
I believe this one when fly it. Argentina has a new, progressive government, but a protectionist record. The domestic market is still very small due to the economic decline of the last several years. Then there is that split between short-haul at AEP and long-haul at EZE, which is bad for any airli...Jump to post
Does Copa simply rely on connecting traffic or is there enough O&D for AR to grab a bite? I'm no expert, but as PTY-EZE is at the top end of the 738's capacity, when AR's MAX 8 come online, we could be flying that route more efficiently...Jump to post
So I was simply wondering if there ever was a MAJOR military project which didn't go overbudget and arrived later than agreed (because these two always seem to come along). I am mostly referring to new planes or ships, big, multi billion dollar projects...Jump to post
On my last flight I only had a carry on bag, so did an online check in to avoid the hassle of the counter line and having to weight my bag. It was a couple of kg (9kg) above the baggage allowance (7kg) but I was able to put it in an overhead bin with no problem. Only thing is, I was appalled because...Jump to post
Everything can be done, but the airline doesn't have the obligation. If it were up to me, I'd honor both the missed connections and the luggage to destination, but I wouldn't waive any luggage fees.Jump to post
Best Boeing: 747. It's iconic, and a pleasure to see and fly. Worst Boeing: 767. Never had to chance to fly in one, but I don't find them special at all, looks, range, nothing, not even the 2+3+2 seating. Best Airbus: A330/A340. The 340-500 and 600 are very pretty to me! and the 2+4+2 arrangemente i...Jump to post
When I first read the title I thought it was about how many people you can squeeze into a toilet at once. Of course that depends on the size of the people. :P I don't know if there's any regulations on the max number of passengers per toilet, but since the max is more or less the same for each type...Jump to post
Can someone please show or demonstrate the actual costs involved with a name change situation such as this? What are all the steps that are required (and why can't they be done online by the customer and then transmitted automatically etc.)?

Is this the strategy to make more losses? Love airlines that announce huge losses one day, and then next, talk about big expansion plans. Not every airline in the world is a private profit focused enterprise. Sometimes it's good business for airlines to increase frequencies and destinations, and ad...Jump to post
While I really don't get the name change fees the airlines love to tack on...because it's really not THAT hard to change in instances like this or a simple misspelling (now changing an entire pax name, that's different due to security measures), this is a case of the pax should've known better...th...Jump to post

Isn't the 763 choice a reflection of the fact that UA is flying them mostly out of EWR?
Delta's presence is (just) a codeshare on AR's daily A330. AR is skyteam... Yes, AR is SkyTeam. Whether AR represents an effective tool for competition on NYC-EZE is quite a different matter. The flight is doing fine AFAIK, putting DL's code on it was a smart choice. Off topic, OTOH AR's codesharin...Jump to post
I like the plane livery update, but prefer the prior logo. Agree, the flower-shape of the prior logos seem more fitting. The smaller, circle-shaped logo looks kind of dull IMHO. it makes three of us. Overall a very nice tweak. I like the grey flower details in the fuselage to break some of its euro...Jump to post
Just a side question, is it really true whats written in the NY Times article, that Alitalia is operating 120 aircraft together with 12 400 strong workforce? Because if that is true, it means some 103 employees for every single plane... I am no expert, but that number seems quite excessive :shock: ...Jump to post
What is the real deal with AZ that they can't stop bleeding money? I work for AR, we know our share of "government has to help us!".

However, and whenever Mr. Munoz leaves UA, whether he jumps out on his own, or is pushed out... he will have a parachute, a Golden parachute. That's how we roll in the USA!!
