Re: American Airlines MD-80 Retirement Discussion Thread

With the retirement today are all mainline AA planes in the new livery?

Re: Indianapolis Aviation Thread - 2019

Took the IND-CDG flight on 7/11 and it was only about 50% full in economy. Purser greeted us in the boarding area before boarding welcoming us to the "new" flight and encouraged everyone to tell their friends about the flight to keep it going. Delta One went out full. Does anyone know if t...

Re: AA Increasing Mainline Service From ORD

Are there any plans to convert more gates to mainline (either in H or L) or G gates to be able to accommodate larger RJs in the future?

Re: Indianapolis Aviation Thread - 2019

Booked on the IND-CDG flight in July! Was cheaper to drive to IND and fly out then fly out of ATL, plus gives me a few days with family on either side of the trip.

Re: How big can SWA get in ATL

I fly out of Atlanta 99% of the time, 98% of the time DL beats SW by $20-$500, if you don’t check an bag in. Sometime even checking 2 bags in DL I am still saving compared to SW. Also SW don’t fly out of ATL to major city’s as often as DL. So it kinda hard to grow for SW in Atlanta. Every city I ha...

I’m on the north side too and didn’t realize we had tornado warnings. They moved through quickly and just wondered why the all day delays. Didn’t know if it was DL’s reliance on routing everything through ATL, but it seems to be an east coast issue this time Delta has ~3,800 flights a day that don'...

DL in ATL 4/19

Anyone else encountered lengthy delays (5+ hours) in ATL today? We had some thunderstorms move through early this morning and rain off and on all day, but does that warrant the delays we’re still dealing with at ATL?

I flew out of IND on Christmas Day and walked around the terminal with extra time. I know I've read this on here before, but wanted to bring it up again. The WN end of B seems very congested when they have multiple flights going out at the same time. From 5:30-6 PM I think I remember 4 or 5 flights ...

Is the convenience of DCA so great that employees would compromise comfort and amenities on a cross country flight vs. taking the new...

Oh yes, I forgot about DL sending the A321 to Atlanta.
