I flew on the eastbound leg. It's a very senior trip, something like 30+ seniority to hold it, GUM based crews. Two first class seats are blocked and they have more recline and footrests than the other seats. The pilots swapped with the relief crew after the first and longest leg HNL-MAJ that was ab...Jump to post
It's a United 757 in the battleship gray livery. Engine pylon is painted blue (Delta is gray, only engine cowlings are blue). The illustration is of a man reading a gray United safety card in the safety card-its a little detail in many of their safety cards. Also, the top of the wing has a long row ...Jump to post
Had a layover in SLC and heard about the long walk. I tracked it on my fitness app and it was exactly 1 mile from the gate (in B concourse) to the middle curb for hotel shuttle. There aren't many moving walkways and the outbound direction were out of service.Jump to post
Any details on what is fixed? Now the burden is on airlines to line up funds and take deliveries. It will be interesting to watch how it unfolds. From the Alaska Airlines press release, here are the key changes Boeing made to the MAX... -MCAS will now read information from both sensors instead of j...Jump to post
According to this article in Airways Magazine they are stating the government declined to offer more support because DY promised to shrink operations but is now planning on resuming as many routes as possible. It looks like DY may have led the government to believe they would become a small domesti...Jump to post
I believe the yellow and blue on the engines and leading edge of the wings is just a protective covering and they aren’t actually painted. That would make sense. Still I think this is the best looking A220 I’ve seen so far. I also just noticed they incorporated the tail design on the winglets. Do t...Jump to post
In LAX?? I thought the Pilots had contract language that spelled out crew lounge requirements in base with things like a required quiet room and what not. LGB will be missed for the peaceful creature comforts. I bet they do another horrible open romper room lounge ala FLL in LAX. Correct and why th...Jump to post
I'm sure EWR will be made a co terminal of JFK soon enough. I'm sure LAX has a crew lounge. Apparently no crew lounge. The crew lounge has always been just the back office space behind the ticket counter, a few computers shared with AO in the common break room- FAs always felt like they were intrud...Jump to post

https://imgur.com/gallery/am6i4TL The first 321LR for Jetblue has been spotted out of the paint shop with a new tail design “waives” as well!

Everyone seems to think its the new Mint TATL aircraft, but Im pretty sure it's just a standard regular Mint configuration. I wonder which Core seats they installed, hopefully the Meridian seats and Avant system. Its amazing that soon JB will have 6 different configurations for the A321 (Core ceo, M...Jump to post
"while you ramper dudes can instead buy an Xbox and football tickets". How elitist and condescending . They're paying for housing, will have medical care, and putting food on the table for their families. You embody the toxic culture at your carrier (I assume AA with your 'cactus" ca...Jump to post
But without the 2LR doors the operator will have great flexibility to determine the premium seating. Yet, they still put something (most likely a lavatory) in the same spot where it is now with a 2L/R door configured plane, so I'm curious as to what the layout is. If its all solo angled seats, perh...Jump to post
Since my question some how went sideways, let me rephrase... If United wants to inaugurate service to a foreign destination, are inflight interpreters required? Would they hire new bilingual FAs specific for that route while 5,500 other FAs are getting furloughed?Jump to post
How will they staff the SFO-BLR flights with speakers? Despite furloughing 5,500 FAs, will they be hiring a handful of new Kannada/Hindi FAs for this route? DH to SFO from other language bases?Jump to post

I'm probably crazy for thinking this... but AA pulling 50 seaters on flights to be replaced by B6 A320s... do you think the pilots, after giving up some scope on codes hares for this deal to happen... maybe also gave up scope on express flights?

The only real way to tell is by the #2 engine - you can see the opening and rear portion of the tail mounted engine is flaired a bit on the DC-10-40. Not sure if that what your question was asking. Otherwise, I believe it was really only engine performance and range. Somebody more technical definite...Jump to post
I would love for Amazon to start some B767 and 777F cargo flights into LGB and see the look on all those NIMBYs faces that didn't want FIS because that would bring in the "international jumbo jets."Jump to post
When does B6 have to legally surrender the slots? Can't they technically hold onto them until the last possible moment?Jump to post
On the other note, im curious to see what people think could've happened in a perfect case scenario if the LGB/B6 Saga actually worked out, keeping in mind restrictions and NIMBYs, but talking about a scenario where LGB reps would've given into B6 requests. The airport would have been rebuilt nd im...Jump to post
Invitation sent to all B6 LGB workgroups for a meeting tomorrow. Ominous feelings as the previous meetings with little notice were full of bad news. Not surprising, the lack of flights at LGB that B6 operated over the past few months speak loudly, especially since LGB is still technically a “focus ...Jump to post

These 1980s seatback screens on VS are pretty spectacular, offering 6 channels of recorded VHS content.
At least these JetBlue crewmembers will be offered opportunities to transfer to other cities. AO furloughs by station? So they'd potentially be bumping others out. B6 is downsizing. There are ZERO openings and certainly no priority transfers to anywhere. And they definitely don't bump anyone out of...Jump to post
So the DOT approved all of the new exemption requests from B6?!? Wowza... Will make things interesting as far as reworking the route map slightly. With stations like DEN, they added the tag on to ABQ I don't think they approved it yet, B6 is just requesting the exemptions. It's been granted by the ...Jump to post
I didn't know it was all F and J, cool fact.

Major schedule reductions for April not reflected in the OAG thread.

In this new age of social distancing, can the airlines just install middle seat blockers or DO NOT USE placards of some sort and still be FAA compliant rather than removing entire seat rows. A placard wouldn't suffice. AA blocked some middle seats on the 738 to bring the seat count down with fixed ...Jump to post
With these 4 A321’s, will they be all core or MINT, once they get the JetBlue interiors? And what tail design will they have? And what other B6 aircraft are scheduled for repaints? Thanks. These 4 A321s were intended to fly for at least a year with original TC interiors with minimum modifications. ...Jump to post
I'm disappointed with this AS/AA news as this makes any possibility of merging with Alaska nearly impossible. On the other hand, as this makes B6 even less relevant on the West Coast... I wonder if this backs B6 further into a corner and makes the possibility of being acquired by WN or UA even more ...Jump to post

This is probably an easy and quick way to get some brand recognition in Europe in the near term, leading up to their own flights across the Atlantic.

Why B6 and not WN/NK/F9/G4?
