By the end of September, all 8 319 Airbus from Frontier should be flying. 4 of them are currently flying if I'm not mistaken. 4 more to come. That is correct. The company just sent out a message regarding these aircraft 4 are already in service. The remaining 4 have the following expected delivery ...Jump to post

AA announcing PHL-CMN! It’s exciting! Needless to say, if people didn't already half-expect it by now (due exclusively to my reporting on it,) it would be an absolute BLOCKBUSTER.

Is there a way the announcement can be pinned to the top of this thread so that we don't have to scroll through hundreds of speculation posts to find it?

I'm thinking the new Eurowings adds will include one in Canada. My guess: LAS and MCO/RSW from MUC and YYC and ANC from FRA. Combined with the already announced routes (FRA-LAS, FRA-MRU etc), this will be a Frontal Attack on Condor, at least from FRA. My guess is it's a plus for the site that you j...Jump to post

As per reply’s in other threads, Can’t say why I know, but the JFK’s are heading to T5. Unsure what BA will throw over to T3, but it’s happening. And sooner than you think.

American is postponing the retirement of aircraft, while Southwest is both postponing retirements and cancelling destinations to mitigate the loss of the MAX.

This article suggests a breakdown of the order:
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/american ... 30124.html
"The source said 30 of the planes would be converted from an existing order for another model, and the remaining 20 involved the exercise of options"
Would that (finally) allow them to make good use of the full potential of their great JFK terminal? Or will they (again) have their lunch eaten by B6 (and/or DL)? Lately they've been "slot squatting" and cutting down routes/frequencies temporarily because of the runway construction at JFK...Jump to post
...From your twitter comments, I assume this is in regards to equipment changes.

The tweet from JonNYC specifically mentions that its not a new route. Unless I missed something, all of the replies talking about new routes are on the wrong track.
