Impilot's thinking on the subject is a little narrow. Sure, pilots would demand something in exchange for scope relief. Adding mainline jobs with a new small narrowbody is one path.

One question I have about them is if they are ever based on market type vs seat count or aircraft weight? Impilot's thinking on the subject is a little narrow.

I would assume that this is simply office and warehouse space for Atlas contracted maintenance personnel and spare parts inventory. Atlas has leases on spaces like this at airports all over the country, even stations that they don’t serve with Amazon anymore (DFW, CLT). They figure might as well han...Jump to post
Another round of the rumor mill. I heard the other day that one of the lead loadmasters at ATI was in DEN and MSP recently to train new hire loadmasters and ground staff.

I am a huge SWA fan but if they are short of aircraft why not reactivate N772SW that has been fully repaired following the Philadelphia accident and Is at VCV and N752SW which is also fully repaired after the Burbank incident and sits at MCI?

Anyone know exactly how much stock percentages-wise Amazon currently owns in AAWW and ATSG? Did they ever actually convert any warrants?

Here's what I believe is the currently scheduled Atlas Amazon network: PDX-PHX This seems to be a new one.

Can anyone tell me why what looks to be a private 762 is parked at the Million Air FBO in SYR and who might be the owner My guess is that's an Eastern/Swift/Dynamic 762 in town to take some Syracuse fans or the band down to the bowl game in Orlando.

I'm shocked that after Southwest 1455 (the infamous picture of the WN 737 next to the Chevron gas station sign) most arrivals continue to use BUR's shorter Runway 8.

Reading that article, I figured the 'future tense' was a matter of financial reports. Morgan Stanley is doing market analysis of FedEx and UPS based on 3Q results.

Re: Moving to March ARB Very interesting. Amazon was certainly developing a large presence at ONT; too bad it all couldn't fit right now.

N1013A arrived in CVG in full Prime Air livery. Yep, the BCFs arrive painted. I had thought that 1013A would be going into service for Amazon.

Not sure if that is addressed to me, If so I’m missing your point No question the 757/ 67 has more redundancy than the 737. I spent 11 years flying both aircraft in the right and left seats though. I would not want to fly in a 737 to HNL or across the pond Nope not directly addressed at you, just u...Jump to post
It sounds like we are saying the same thing: it’s a trickier question than merely counting the number of redundancies. Look at fly by wire, for instance. Without manual reversion the aircraft need more redundancies. When it comes to the Hydraulic systems, yes. The additional redundancies to account...Jump to post
I believe the 737 will keep the APU running for these ETOPS flights providing some electrical redundancy Like I said, that airframe is fine for the relatively short leg west coast to HNL. But there is still no backup after those three generators go. Electrics: 767: 2 engine generators, 1 APU genera...Jump to post
What redundancies do the 75/76 have that, say, a 321NEO lacks? I would have to talk to a 737 or A320 typed guy and compare... . So you don't know, do you? Yet you stated it as fact. Well, he didn't know details but he inferred, as a professional. He inferred that neither of those aircraft has a Hyd...Jump to post
The early models of the 737 were designed for shorter flights. However as they have evolved, like us humans did. What they could accomplish has increased with technology.

Your point is well taken regarding "stories" but none the less a number of 737-800's have made the PDX fuel stop enroute to SEA. It a contingency or redispatch operation probably 98% of the time.

No, but given range issues due to fuel I wouldn’t feel comfortable being down an engine and flying lower altitude with higher fuel burn or even the added drag. I’d imagine any issue on a mainland-Hawaii flight to the likes of the WN issue would have resulted in a major tragedy. Fuel for overwater f...Jump to post
Thanks for the info, JB. This slow and careful expansion of the Amazon network this year is one reason that I am dubious about the pesky rumours that Amazon is going to order 40-60 new 767Fs.

1511A is available as a spare to Amazon right now, and is available to Amazon if they choose to expand their schedule or network.

All of the Atlas Amazon 767s are ETOPS certified.

I always thought the L2 door on the A321 was smaller than the L1 door and that the L2 door was an emergency exit only.
