Can't we just all be happy that all the sides are coming together to talk and try to come to a compromise that everyone can accept? That's how things should be. Sit down, discuss your differences and come up with an amicable solution. There is no need to bash or belittle anyone involved with the ta...Jump to post
Boyd suggested BA via LHR as a candidate. Maybe Aer Lingus? Likely there are others and they are not ULCC but network carriers....therefor support one of the drivers: "through hub feed...aka beyond LHR; FRA; CDG; AMS etc" Not sure why STL is not on the list; the list is Boyd's not mine ST...Jump to post
Having children is also a gross and dirty process, and a choice as well. Should the rest of society cater to other people's need to breed? That's an award-winning comment right there. Wow. I would rather deal with a brief cloud of smoke in an airport than an unruly child on a 4 hour flight. I'll ta...Jump to post
nth thread about Heathrow expansion and still no expansion. I've always thought another runway at both STN and LGW would be the way to go. Cheaper and with less environmental/population impact than shoehorning another runway in at LHR. As a Yank I have no horse in this race but diversifying the Lon...Jump to post
Probably the next big thing will be to put a VS* codeshare service on all flights operated by BE at LHR and MAN. The Virgin logo will suddenly multiply its presence on airport boards. If the franchise deal is done by the winter timetable, no need for the codeshares. And also Connect will adopt the ...Jump to post
David Neeleman must be sitting in a bar getting hammered right about now.
What does WAB stand for? Winging A Bankruptcy?
I only see airside smoking areas when passing through Asia and some euro ports. I've never seen them back home in Australia. Smoking is a gross and dirty habit and whilst I support the right for people to smoke, it is a choice and no where should have to cater for the habit. Having children is also...Jump to post
HELL NO. Sponging off the government is far more lucrative.Jump to post
Its not happening anytime soon. There is alot of US destinations first, central and s. America then maybe Canada. Heck id expect ANC before Canada. Plus if you look at MDW, their biggest hub, you can fly porter for $130. And thats to Billy Bishop. Porter has been at it at MDW for a long time and ha...Jump to post
Gotta love how everyone is saying we won’t make his political, yet in their replies, they literally make it political by their choice of words... But anyways, the flyovers/speech/fireworks have been announced for a while now. I’m sure the airlines/airports/atc knew before now. It is just hitting th...Jump to post
To me the most frustrating part is seeming to always take off on the runway on the opposite side of the airport from my terminal and then landing on the opposite side as well. Seems to be the case almost every time for me. I’m sure there are reasons certain planes are using certain runways, but the...Jump to post
Why do I sense a deteriorating thread?
Interesting. How long before we get a MSA group holding if not a MSA airline again? We should see first if their interests wouldn't get in the way. MH and SQ split over differences in how each country wanted to expand. That was then, this is now. SQ is clearly the long haul player of the two. Not s...Jump to post
Nordica is the smallest flag carrier in Europe, right?
I flew into Memphis back on May 17th and it amazed me how high the fares were on American between Charlotte and Memphis. I ended up taking a $213 one stop (stopover in Dallas) one way ticket vs taking a $534 nonstop one way ticket. I thought that was outrageous. Spoke-to-hub prices are always high,...Jump to post
I wonder if the history of TWA might have been different had they ordered the-500 while still in production. It wouldn't have completely replaced the 747 (range issues) but would have been a much better fit for TWA's long haul network. One gripe I remember hearing from TWA exec's as early as the lat...Jump to post
MNL-LHR is here to stay.
The problem is the frequency is too low, They should increase the frequency to at least daily Because if 2 flights a week is too much, 7 flights a week is just right? :rotfl: the low frequency cannot attract business traveler NYC-Chicago, true. How many travelers per day are flying between the enti...Jump to post
I always assumed non-Star airlines would be moving en mass to PKX leaving PEK to be nearly all Star. This comes as no surprise but its interesting that CZ won't be operating any flights to PEK from it's other China hubs.Jump to post
Isn't that what is referred to as a round robin flight? I think it's fairly common, AA seems to be using it more often these days. Its my understanding that "round robin" flights were a way of serving two destinations with one plane such as STL-SRQ-RSW-STL as an old example from the TWA S...Jump to post

Many people were betting on NW ordering some as DC-9 replacements. That would have been THE prime order for the MD-95 at the time.Jump to post
SEA-LGB before SEA-OAK/BUR/ONT? LGB traffic seems to do better on the West Coast. And if DL doesn't use the other 3 slots "somewhere" they lose 'em. I can see SEA as the lower risk option should DL decide to utilise the 3 unused slots. A route like LGB-SEA would also need a business frien...Jump to post

I remember these things called "books". Does anyone else? And some people read, some watch TV, some draw, some do a combination of them on flights, and/or other things (not anything inappropriate for being in a plane, of course - I'd hope at least). Why does wanting choices that someone e...Jump to post
No. Knowing this Company the way I do. Not going to happen most likely. Honestly, the new WN has mostly moved beyond the secondary Airport business model aside from DAL, MDW, and HOU. Well in all seriousness then, how many Fort Worth area pax drive past DFW to fly out of DAL? I've always been curio...Jump to post
One of two things will happen in 2024. Either WN will petition for full unrestricted repeal of the Wright Amendment and buildout DAL to the full 40 gate master plan (most likely scenario). Or, they will request 10-15 gates be made available at DFW and split the operation between the two Airports. O...Jump to post
