This is all very exciting and highly unexpected. I always thought that if AA were to choose a West Coast city to use as a focus city, they would have chosen to return to SJC. 1) Because of the tech business and Bay Area and 2) because SFO and SEA are already hubs for competitors. AA used to fly to N...Jump to post
How about the new IL-96-400M? The plane Russia (strangely) wants to start building in 2 or 3 years.Jump to post
Carry on baggage wouldn't be such a problem in evacuations if the safety demonstration included a line about leaving all objects behind. Some airlines do this, but not all of them and it's something that's easy to do that could partly remedy this phenomenon. Of course people like to ignore instructi...Jump to post
I would say that if anyone is going to fly to JAX from LAX, it's either AA or DL. DL may have more frequent flyers in the area because of its geographic proximity to ATL, but AA is bigger at both airports (source: https://www.flightsfrom.com/JAX , you are free to question its reliability).

Extra material from United. It's now a "Twitter Moment."
Honestly, if they keep using swoops like that in their hype videos it's got to be part of the livery. Lostsound's interpretation is classy and much better than what was previously posted on this thread as "the next livery." I'm keeping my fingers crossed and waiting in anticipation for Wed...Jump to post
Man, I really like Russia and Russian aircraft, but the chances of an Ил-96-400 being successful are probably very slim. Unless those new engines are competitively fuel efficient, and the aircraft itself boasts unique performance characteristics, most companies will look elsewhere. My hope is that t...Jump to post
OK, this is (strangely) an unpopular opinion on this website, but I really enjoy the new livery and the flag tail is perhaps my favorite part. From an objective standpoint, it is not dated when compared to the current trends in branding. United on the other hand.... When this new livery came out I w...Jump to post
I don't understand how this would help Rolls Royce. IAG has all sorts of problems with IB, EI, I2, and VY and they have a "Spanish passport." None of it makes sense to me, could anyone explain the difference between Rolls-Royce's Brexit plan and IAG's debacle?Jump to post
It’s not purple, the suiting is navy and the ties/pocket squares are blue with red detailing making them appear purple in the photos. This could totally be the case. Think of the Spanish national soccer team's new uniform. Plenty of people see the blue stripe as purple (I do as well) but if you loo...Jump to post
No I never think about this because the trend in aviation today is moving in the right direction ecologically. Airlines really want to save fuel and they ask for more fuel efficient planes to be built, and that's happening. Some would argue that NOT flying would keep you from contributing to the &qu...Jump to post
Southwest is the most likely candidate. I think they're still the largest carrier in California and they might be interested in adding a new California destination if they plan on keeping that title.
LAS is my only guess as to one of the destinations.
AA used to have gift cards in all the grocery stores. A few years ago they decided to discontinue them. I guess people weren't buying enough of them. Here's a picture of one. I seem to remember them using a different picture on their cards, but that may have been toward the end. https://dl52d2tabxpg...Jump to post
I flew on plenty of MD-80s/Super 80s out of LAX and SNA growing up. The MD-80 is one of my all-time favorites (last few rows were always a treat). While this is sad to hear, it was bound to happen. We should be celebrating the fact that these planes lasted as long as they did. It's a testament to th...Jump to post
If there's a PTV onboard people are bound to use it without question. The problem is that they can be frustrating both for those using them and for those who don't. You either have to press the screen so hard that you move the seat in front of you or you have this screen in front of you that doesn't...Jump to post
That's incredible footage! It really demonstrates how powerful the engines are. Could someone explain how these containers are secured? At the airport you kind of just see the ground crew moving them onto dollies and zipping off. Never really noticed any kind of locking procedure or anyone using ban...Jump to post
You made excellent points. I’ve always thought of San Jose being a next destination. Leakage to Newark and JFK doesn’t help PHL either but west coast is def something AA must boost up Thanks! Yes they really need to improve over here. It's kind of embarrassing to think that AA, the airline that swa...Jump to post
It's nice to hear that a Russian aircraft program as modern as this one is putting another order on the books, but Syrian airlines aren't strangers to Russian frames. Nothing will really grab anyone's attention until they can sell some planes to airlines in larger Western countries. What sucks is th...Jump to post
PHL's California connections need more attention. If AA's plan is use PHL as their main TATL gateway then adding another California city wouldn't be such a bad idea. SJC is the biggest hole and there's a decent catchment area out of that airport for domestic traffic. The problem with PHL and transco...Jump to post
Airlines like having multiple frequencies not just because it gives consumers more choices but also because they have the potential to serve as redundancies for the odd passenger whose connecting flight has arrived late or the occasional mechanical/weather cancellation. Our airports may be more cong...Jump to post
They should really require a special document for emotional support animals. Currently, the program is clearly being abused (which is actually an understatement) and 90% or more of the people flying with a support animal just want too avoid paying a fee. A rule created to help a challenged group of ...Jump to post
