https://my.flightradar24.com/fleather98 Yup, I have 15 on the 738, 13 on the 73G, and 12 on the 752. Fourth place is quite a drop, with 7 on the A320. Also 5 on the 739, 3 on the 733, and 1 on the 7M8 to bring my 737 total up to 37 flights. It shows a private profile. For the record, mine is https:...Jump to post
Cool! Where did you book a Swift flight? Thought they were a charter airline.Jump to post
A couple of observations: AA has added an A321 to ORD most mornings in Oct. I've never seen that on that route by any carrier. Also, with CMH,DTW & MSP coming back in Sep for Sundays that leaves SFO as the only suspended route that hasn't come back yet. That's a strange one considering LAX has ...Jump to post
STL Airport will be losing another former TWA City...

My dad told me that he flew STL-London on BCal in September 1980 when he was going to college. I guess he flew the 707 then through ATL. Asked him more about that. He said that in STL he took a bus to the BCal plane that was parked on a hardstand. According to Wikipedia, the DC-10 replaced the 707 a...Jump to post

Nice. Lets see if they can make at least most of these new ATL adds stick, because some of their other cities didn't have as much luck (*cough* Austin *cough*).Jump to post
17 hours? I saw an AA flight from DFW-OGG earlier this year get delayed by 30 hours (including a two-hour wait for the gate on arrival in Maui). Now THAT'S a flight from hell.Jump to post
WN and B6 is probably the worst merger one can imagine. B6 and F9 or NK would be much better. Also eliminating that Florida competition for B6. The Biden administration is focused on expanding competition in corporate America. It’s doubtful there’ll be any mergers or buyouts approved by the Justice...Jump to post

Well it looks like the CKB-MDW experiment was dropped fairly quickly. That was one of the stranger routes that G4 has attempted.

Interesting perspective: Tomorrow Frontier is 6 flights out of STL (only on A321s and A320neos) with a total of 1292 departing seats. United is flying 17 flights out of STL (all on CRJ-550s or E175s) with a total of 1078 departing seats. So F9 is bigger in terms of seats at STL than UA (at least on ...Jump to post

Unfortunate. Nice to see the SJU flight though. I thought BDL was a great route especially for the inbound legs?

This is definitely noteworthy.
