Saw somewhere that a new MAX was ferried to SKF for storage due to no more space in PAE, BFI and RNT. It got me thinking.
What airports in the US have large, unused ramps that could store MAXs after SKF fills up? STL, DAY, CVG, and MKE come to my mind after a brief google earth search.
Seeing how United and Delta have been dumping CRJ-700s from their regional partners and AA has been picking them up, can we expect to see AA take over the Republic E170s and put 65 seats in them? They don’t really fit the scope of DL and UA well but might be perfect for AA’s network.Jump to post
How big of a deal are different engine types though? In 2013 AA ordered separate engine types on the A319/A321 order. United doesn’t mind 2 engine types on 757/767/777 either.Jump to post

Delta flies to most of its hubs and focus cities from DCA, but also flies to LEX, MSN, and OMA. These 3 are all either state capitals or very close proximity to the respective capitals. Are there government contracts that keep these routes with DL? Why has AA not taken aim at these, especially decen...Jump to post
Doug Parker doesn’t do anything for free. He’ll still make it available for purchase, then blame marketing when revenues tank.Jump to post

Looks like United will keep the GoJet CRJ-700s but bring them down to 50 seats to comply with scope, creating the new CRJ-550 variant.
Help me get this straight. Where T2 is today will be the new Global Terminal, where the oneworld internationals will park. There will be a southern addition to C that will also be the Global Terminal, that’s where the Star internationals will park. UAX will occupy the island west of the new C additi...Jump to post
Currently, in 2019 there aren't any planned openings. If we get the Compass contract back, then we should hear something mid-year in order to start preparing (this is from our VP of Flight Ops). I honestly believe that AAG wants to put these planes with MQ because it will save them hundreds of thou...Jump to post
With N264NN & N265NN being delivered, Envoy has begun the process of nearly doubling its E175 fleet, from 44 to 84 aircraft. But where will this growth occur? At the expense of another regional carrier? Also, won’t Envoy need more gates at ORD to be 175 capable? The stinger and the even L gates ...Jump to post
I have been trying get a grasp on what the ultimate regional plan is for AA moving forward.. is the following summary at least a moderately accurate assessment of where things will be within 12-18 months?

Anyone know the proposed equipment for DFW-MRY? Embraer 175 from Envoy Are you sure? Envoy doesn't fly any west coast routes at all right now. Montana/Calgary being the closest. Company internal website is the source. While it only specified "E175", Envoy is the only 175 operator in DFW, ...Jump to post
Here’s a question that just came to mind ... with the massive drawdown of international flying out of ORD will the 788’s still be based there? I’m assuming not. Not sure that I’d call it a massive drawdown. Remember, they are starting seasonal HNL and ATH, plus the current 3-4 daily LHR, the few we...Jump to post
The collapse of Air Berlin has left Germany’s largest city with only one year round route and one seasonal route to the United States - a daily United 767 to EWR, and a seasonal Delta 767 to JFK. Berlin is one of the largest urban areas in Europe, but has sparse service to the US. It would seem if ...Jump to post

The majority of the EV birds are already in the 9F/56Y config ALL EV birds are in the 9F/56Y config. And if I had to guess what things will look like in a year these would be my predictions: Compass will indeed lose the 175s to Envoy - it's already rumored and expected. But, rather than add an MQ b...Jump to post
With the trade disputes over, I would think an AA+QR deal would be hugely profitable to both airlines. With AA’s vast network in the west combined with QRs expansion, they could dominate the US-Middle East/India market. With QR losing profitability in a hurry, wouldn’t they be desperately looking fo...Jump to post
I've noticed some of the busiest airports in the US are class C airports, some of them are even busier than a few class B airports. I realize airports like PIT and CVG and CLE used to be powerhouses and needed class B status, but is it really necessary today? Especially when the airspaces of the lik...Jump to post

It appears British Airways has suspended service LHR-DOH from 25 March to 30 June. While the route will still be served by Qatar, the BA metal will not operate during this time. Anyone know why?

Both DFW/CLT-ECP and DFW/CLT-SBN will be operated by ExpressJet CRJ-700s. I was a bit surprised to see Acey pick these up instead of Envoy/Mesa from DFW or PSA from CLT. This is in addition to current service to BTR and TYS from CLT, and planned service to CHA.Jump to post
According to FlightAware, N278AY flew from CLT to SAL on 5 NOV 2017 and has not returned (as of 12 JAN 2018), and N276AY made the same voyage 3 days ago.
This appears to be the beginning of the end for the A333 at American, unless someone has additional information.
Why is AA stagnating at ORD anyway? They should be doing the opposite and expand. Or is the focus shifting to building up elsewhere? American has announced a plethora of new routes, is building 5 new gates, and Envoy just opened their new E175 base at ORD. I think your definition of "stagnatin...Jump to post
BA has held onto a small number of 767 for years now, despite taking delivery of dozens of new 787s that could easily replace them. Some common routes include Kiev, Zurich, Glasgow... routes that could easily and sensibly be switched over to A320 family aircraft. With all this talk about AA and &quo...Jump to post
I'm curious what they will do with flights such as Chicago to Marquette, Mi. It's a CRJ-700. If you move that plane type to PSA, which has no crew based in Chicago, how do you operate the flight? Also, what did Envoy air do wrong? If you take planes from them, and don't give them planes .... Airlin...Jump to post
Does anyone know if the Marquette (KSAW/MQT) maintenance base deals only with Envoy planes, or do they also perform maintenance on CRJs/ERJs from other AE carriers like Piedmont or PSA? MQT is an Envoy only MX base. Currently the route is flown by CRJ-700s. I imagine when (if) they leave the fleet,...Jump to post
I would think that if CX goes anywhere, it will be SkyTeam. Garuda Indonesia and Vietnam are decent in their regions, but CX is a global powerhouse for SE Asia that SkyTeam could really use.

Starting with PHL-LAX on March 24th, AA will begin flying PHL-LAX-PHL on Airbus A330 aircraft. The service will start with a one off A330-200, moving to daily A330-300s beginning on March 25th. This is the second trans-con route from PHL on the big bus (SFO). Good to see a product improvement over t...Jump to post
