Even if the E190s got a refresh with a product similar to the A321s and Phase 1 A320s, I think it would be a significant improvement. Other than the comfy seats, generous legroom and big windows, the E190s have lost some of their charm IMO. All of my most recent flights on them have had a combinatio...Jump to post
Noticed SkyWest now has a CRJ2 operating for AA at the moment. Mainly relegated to ORD-PIT/BNA/OKC. N699BR is the tail number.

Yep, Breeze made cuts throughout its entire network about a day or two ago. Supposedly, it is due to the FAA taking longer than expected to certify the rest of their E190s. As a result, I guess that routes with the weakest performance are seeing a reduction in frequencies to make up for the shortage...Jump to post
A previous topic on repaints has been locked. With the new livery on N500WR, I went through photographs since 1st January, 2021 I found 10 more aircraft in the Heart livery: N217JC N225WN N237WN N241WN N253WN N275WN N287WN N7704B N7735A N965WN and updated the google sheets listings. https://docs.go...Jump to post
Also gone are PIT-FLL/PBI, CLE-RSW, ORD-PBI, DCA-TPA, RIC-LAX/LAS. Of that list, I'm really just surprised by PIT-FLL. If they are going to keep around all of the other FLL adds, why are they cutting PIT of all places? Too many seats on PIT-South Florida and B6 is the odd man out once again. There ...Jump to post
I was also down to purchasing the 24-120mm or 24-70mm for my D750 about a month ago. I eventually decided to shell out the extra money and get the 24-70mm. IMHO, I definitely made the better choice. Image quality is crisp and I think that supersedes the range disadvantage it has versus the 24-120mm....Jump to post
The Red Sox logojet got a livery refresh just like the NY Jets plane did.

I have heard twice this week that N3008J (the first A220) is flying to PIT tomorrow morning for a crew line check. Anyone in the know happen to have more information? JetBlue did the same sort of thing with the A321neo prior to it entering service last year.Jump to post

Anyone know what is going on with the A319 fleet at Spirit? All of them were parked due to covid and I remember reading on A.net and Twitter that they were being phased out.

Not exactly booking-related, but I've noticed lots of routes see regional service during this pandemic that didn't traditionally have it.

I noticed an A321T swap in on PIT-DFW-PIT last Friday. Ferried in from JFK and did a round-trip. Thought that was very unusual.
Since their utilization will be way down, I’m curious to see if they will end up getting spread out around the system or grounded once again.

It is worth noting that the A320s will likely be needed to cover the former MD-88 routes once demand starts to pick back up. As of now, nearly all MD-88 routes have been directly replaced by 717s.
