They could not park the A333 at the end of D for two reasons. 1) None of the gates at the end of D are widebody-capable and 2) DL had a lot of reposition flights on E170s/175s this evening and all of them had to park at the far end of D. There were several RJs all parked at D86/87/88/89 when I was ...Jump to post
As a domestic flight I find it really odd that the DL A333 would not park at one of the unused gates at the end of the D concourse right next to DL's existing operation and stay out of the way of the int'l operations. The UA B77W from MAD was only about 6 minutes apart from the scheduled Condor arr...Jump to post

I'm currently seeing some Republic E170/175 equipment being shifted to IAD for W19 while Mesa is shifting some CRJ7 flying to IAH. I don't think YX has operated for United Express out of IAD for a few years now. Either way, there appears to be some movement planned for the regionals this upcoming wi...Jump to post

The latest shot from Hamburg on Planespotters also shows the same registration, though the uploader claims that it's a misprint.

A bit of an incident at BOS tonight as DL2488 from SFO clipped wings with DL154 bound for DUB.

So other than the LAX suspension, PIT seems to have come out mostly unscathed for once. Interesting to see BNA is picking up a third daily flight on Sundays. Isn't PIT-LAS usually 2x daily? I believe WN typically drops down to 1x daily during the low season, though I don't recall when that usually ...Jump to post

So I haven't got around to uploading a shot of this until now. Although I prefer the full plane shot, I have serious doubts about it having a chance, which is why I've linked a second shot which I think has better quality. https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/3/0/1/5605103.jpg?v=v4cb30b4f3...Jump to post

I almost never slide the whites below -10 and the only time I ever have to is from harsh lighting. -10 does the trick over 95% of the time.
Also, from personal experience, getting the shadows beyond +45 usually leads to a drop-off in overall quality of the image.
DE2098 from FRA is scheduled to arrive at 3:15pm tomorrow afternoon instead of the typical 6:25pm arrival for Fridays.
Seems like a one-off.

In addition to extra FLL frequencies, NK is resuming TPA on September 6, a month earlier than last season. Initially runs 3x weekly then goes 1x daily on November 14.

Condor had network planners visit Pittsburgh last week and a radio interview was done with Carsten Sasse, Head of Sales in International Markets at DE.

A few anecdotes from the above data: - Strong numbers for UA on SFO continue They seem to be slowly upgauging this flight some days from an A319 to a 739 in the morning and an A320 in the afternoon.

Thanks Jehan. I ended up binning 7882 because there was an issue I found that was unfixable. I guess the image still showed up in the reply even after I deleted it.

Not a good night for QR707. It is still stranded at PIT and will not be able to depart until 0835 tomorrow morning due to an unrelated mechanical issue.

First off, I get that this is entirely subjective.

My last trip to TPA, I saw a former BA B734 parked out by one of their hangars. Was it in the full livery still? If so it was likely a Comair bird, there haven't been any British BA 734s around in 5+ years now. The rudder was still painted in BA colors, but the rest of the tail and the titles on th...Jump to post
PEMCO does a lot of mod work at TPA. Sounds like it’s going to be outfitted for a new owner.

Edit: Before anyone comments... no, WN is not bringing any B733s back into service to cover for the MAX.
Would like some pre-screening on these six I just added to the queue.

JKPhotos, I had about 5-7 more shots in my queue but I deleted them after those three initial rejections.

Kas and Karl, thanks for your honest answers. I have entire sequences for the first three so maybe I could salvage something but I doubt it.
