How far along is JetBlue in refurbishing their A320 fleet? 19 are currently flying around with the Phase 1 cabin with the last one (N598JB) currently in LCQ. 1 is currently flying around with the Phase 2 cabin (N729JB) while 2 are currently in SAL for mods.

N402AN en route XFW-BGR-PIT for delivery and induction.
Delivery flight for American’s next A321neo (N402AN) currently scheduled for tomorrow.
Has ViaAir even operated into PIT at all this month? I’m seeing every flight up to 5/3 listed as cancelled.
The B788 and B789 at BA have very similar capacity. But when looking at the seating charts in-depth, they are quite different. 788 35J 25W 154Y (214 total) 789 8F 42J 39W 127Y (216 total) The B789 has an F class plus larger J and W cabins. The B788 in comparison has a larger Y cabin. I initially wou...Jump to post
The most hilarious bit from this is that the article is not even related to the MAX, it's about a DL B738 having to turn around for a nose gear indication. Yet Business Insider just HAS to go completely off-topic to stoke the MAX fire even more.Jump to post
I have to agree with many of the posters here regarding Wendover, Mustard, and Real Engineering. The only downside is that they don't post very often. I'm also a huge fan of the pilot channels like Mentour Pilot, Captain Joe, or dutchpilotgirl. Not really "aviation news" per se, but I'm a ...Jump to post
Veigar, I'm also 20. So I think I can relate here... If you are in college, a great (and imo the best) way to make some friends is to join intramural sports. Find someone you know and form an intramural sports team. For me, I got asked to join a hockey team by a friend of mine and I gladly took the ...Jump to post
F-16.net tracks what aircraft rotate through the Thunderbirds, but it doesn't seem like it has been updated in years. Looking through the database, Thunderbird #6 is listed as 92-3880. 4875889 As for the rejection itself... you could try to boost the contrast, but those conditions really aren't help...Jump to post
Ex-F9 N771XF entered revenue service with AA on 5/8.
Oddly enough, this appears to be the only -111 in the AA A319 fleet at the moment.
Has anyone come across Alaska giving any sort of update with regards to how SEA is doing? Things seem to have been pretty quiet since service started. Outside of a brutal January, loads have looked alright. The flight is currently flipping back and forth between the B738 and B739, although the latte...Jump to post

Hey I thought I'd bump this thread... does anyone know how many A319s are left flying around in the digital or "pixel" livery? There can't be that many left flying around. I caught N531NK this past Saturday and it's still flying around in old colors.Jump to post

For those who work at the airport, are there ever any landings on 14? A few weeks ago, I saw a G4 A319, a UA E170, and a 4B PC-12 all take RWY 14. I remember we had crazy weather that day and they quickly went back to the 28s after that. First and only time I’ve seen them use 14 for arrivals... I h...Jump to post
As someone who commutes on this road nearly every single day, I could not agree more. That would be an absolute dream. But like others have hashed over, the money just isn’t there. Also, at some point, that road is going to have to be completely resurfaced soon. It is in such poor shape from Campbe...Jump to post
JetBlue will be moving to gate B29 soon. Jetway is currently being refurbished and B6 signage is officially up at that gate. Totally agree, I think it was such a foolish decision to build the busway ramps like that. I remember driving by years ago during their construction and thinking "finally...Jump to post
Anyone know if money was thrown at this route by one of the airports (as is PIT pattern in particular) My thoughts exactly!!

A fourth 911th C-17 has now been based at PIT. Arrived late last night and is currently parked between the south apron and Atlantic.
Hey all. This may be a long shot but unfortunately my 55-200mm lens broke on me and this was the best shot I could get. I'd love to priority add this but I'm very so-so. Feedback would be appreciated!

There was a US Airways Express Dash8 in the dark blue that lasted until the AA merger. Three DH8Cs went straight from the dark blue US livery to the new AA livery. N327EN, N328EN, and N337EN. The dark blue livery in general was still around for quite some time. I flew on a US A319 in 2009 that stil...Jump to post
Hi all - random question and unsure if it's been answered. I live near the westbound final approach of KPHX. I notice often that there are some AA planes that have red markings on their winglets. What does this signify? I've seen it on 738s and 321s with sharklets. Thanks in advance! At one point, ...Jump to post
I saw the cluster of heavy thunderstorms right over DC. They're not moving very fast either! I suppose PIT could have been seeing a higher volume of diversions if the weather was more widespread, but it appears to be isolated to DC. We have fair skies here near Philly and up to New York...

And here we have our first A380 diversion of the year. AF54 (IAD-CDG) about to arrive.
Sorry for my ignorance....who is AAR? What kind of MX checks would they do there? And does this have anything to do with the new Southwest mechanics contract?

The new United livery will make its first appearance at PIT this Saturday, operating UA648 from DEN. I also received conformation earlier this week that it will indeed be here.
So far, just SFO and EWR.

N685UA (ex-HA) ferried GYR-LAX as UA2714. Aircraft has globe paint, it did not receive the new livery for those wondering. It was painted back in February and stored.
Not sure why FR24 still has it listed as N590HA even months after the change.
