Although 250 below 10,000 is a thing in the United States, if a heavy jet needs it, they can be approved for a high-speed climb.Jump to post
Also, Delta would be in Terminal 2 with the gates owned by them. The airport also has to construct another terminal, if Delta were to establish a hub at SFO. Sure, where are you going to put another terminal. They construct an island for the new terminal which is Terminal 4. You have to take the Ai...Jump to post
So I'm wondering if Delta has a hub at SFO. Delta had a route from NRT to SFO So there's a bit of history here. Back when NW was still in operation, they designated both NRT and AMS as "hubs." From these hubs, they operated a number of fifth-freedom flights. A summary of the NRT hub's his...Jump to post

Now that T2 and T7 are going away (and there will be a new T6), might it not be time for PANYNJ to update the terminal numbering as well? They'd have T1, T4, T5, T6, T8...

In Europe, planes often times will taxi into the runway and start takeoff roll without stopping. In US I don’t ever remember this happening It has happened. Here's one from back in 2010 out of ORD. You can see both the Delta DC-9 and the United 757-200 rolling without stopping. In fact, the United ...Jump to post

Why specifically DTW-NRT.

I’m surprised no one has asked if this is a write off yet. But serious question: how much repairing does this bird need before it can go back to the skies?
