Re: Warning for those going to Disney for the new Star Wars land: TSA has just banned the themed Coke bottles sold there

I had no issue getting a few of these through Orlando in a carry on a few weeks ago. Again, this will probably be a YMMV sort of thing.

Re: Should the government regulate minimum seating space

no, arguably it violates the Airline Deregulation Act. Regulating seat size will in effect set a floor on fares by govt edict. This. If the government were to regulate and set a minimum seat size, etc. it would give the airliners the ability to immediately raise their fares. If this happened, the s...

Re: UPS announces order for 14 747-8F and 4 767F

Finally, a major expansion of the hub is to begin in 2019. Source? Because as of now a runway will run through it. Unless you mean the complete relocation, which has been in the works for many years. http://blog.accessphilly.com/u/staticpages/2011/01/air05-map.jpg Can't find the article right now, ...

Re: UPS announces order for 14 747-8F and 4 767F

I don't know what surprised me more, the original order or the conversion of all of their options. Who would've thought we'd see an A380 order and a 747-8 order within weeks of each other. I believe someone in another thread last week (UPS Pilot maybe) said there was a rumor that UPS was exercising ...

Re: Cargo carriers (UPS, FedEx) up-gauging aircraft, flights during the holiday season?

UPS does the same thing, either on the their own metal or via lease. For example, PHL sees multiple 747Fs daily due to the increased Holiday demand (compared to zero 747Fs during non peak times).

Re: Boeing may consider restarting 767 pax model production

Reheating cold pizza. This is a terrible idea at best. This screams unimaginative and if true is owing up to being 2nd fiddle. Right now it feels like Boeing is grasping at straws for everything. Making a MAX version of the 737 was the wrong decision. Clearly they should have started the NSA but th...

Re: British Airways at PHL

As OslPhlWasChi said, the total number of seats went up by about a hundred or so, from the previous 1x daily AA A330, BA 772 & 788/9. Now operated by two AA A330 and one BA 744, I would think that the route is doing well. I often fly Spirit out of PHL, a gate over from BA and I always see their...
