Well, I just got off an AA flight (on a 321s) that had the Thales seatback system. While the system itself was fine, the immediate advantage of the wireless system was not having to sit through 20 minutes of Hyatt, AA Barclay card, more Hyatt, AA cleaning, more Hyatt, the same AA cleaning video, th...Jump to post
You certainly weren’t imagining it. I Feel it at the top of decent on every flight.Jump to post

The landing issues were corrected with a LSAS software update. I think a lot of MD-11 pilots would disagree with you. Well, I was among them and don't remember too much being said after the update.

Well, since the success or failure of the operation generally falls on the chief operating officer, perhaps a look at the COO’s resume and operational background and experience is in order.

Corporate name was changed from "Airline" to "Airways" in early 2019. Y’all are right. That’s much better. Mea culpa. I drove past the training center today and it still says “Republic Airline” on the side so I assumed it hadn’t changed. The world feels slightly more orderly now.Jump to post
First off, I realize how incredibly minor and petty this is, but it’s all in good fun. Is anyone else annoyed by the name Republic Airline (note the singular airline vs say “Republic Airlines”)? Once you see it’s tough to not. I realize they’ve got all sorts of brand stuff going on from RAH, Republi...Jump to post
There are radically different views of fewer-type cost savings, even within the U.S. industry: DL, 898 mainline planes, 11 types (as of 12/31/2019) WN, 736 mainline planes, 1 type (They paid ~$160 million up-front to make the 717s go away.

Never mind, just realized its not. I wonder if they have tanks of water on each seat to simulate passenger weights though?

ExPlat on AA here and I’ve moved all future bookings to United... the AA product is very diluted and not trending towards improvement.

Do we have confirmation FedEx bought a few DL 777Ls? It will happen as otherwise too much value in too many aircraft is lost. The question is when and if FedEx is an early buyer.

This has to be a huge hit for ASL. I guess there might have been some kind of 5 year clause in the contract from the TNT take over that has now lapsed. That's the only reason I can come up with for why they would take this step right now when freight is booming. I hope ASL can find new jobs for man...Jump to post

All I can say is the TSA numbers have been at 1 million all week (biggest week since early March). Lots of people are flying. I think the industry will power out of this from here on. But no, not aware of specific reason on RSW 764. RSW is traditionally a midwest stronghold. I’m not trying to turn ...Jump to post
Since AUS gets mentioned a lot, I'm going to take a look at how they could expand there. I don't think it will reach focus city status.

If you look at the post where they were introduced, he offered them up as a random, new-ish frame at each major integrator to compare reliability. That's all I was doing there.

I can certainly appreciate nostalgia but take issue with the folks longing for a return to the “golden age”.

Ouch. That was hard to watch. Seems like some similar design elements to the previous video (maybe the same director or production company?).

Mesa hasn't killed anyone in 40 years of operation which is more than most regionals can say. Mesa's pay has always been horrible. I knew a Mesa FA that lived in her car in the employee lot at ORD.

at first thought , it sounds silly ,but if we look closely ,we could see the idea doable given multiple factors : For a start, cash.
