Interesting that the dodgers are flying out of Burbank instead of LAX this year. Wonder what the reason is.

Re: WN Q2 result

Ya, they have the cash to strong arm the market and be the only airline in certain city pairs. Should allow them to get good market share coming out of the travel recession as other airlines pull out.

Re: FedEx and it’s airborne ‘sweep’ aircraft

ZDV ATC here. See the fedex guys almost every night, especially in the busy seasons. They are in the air hanging out and can go everywhere depending on needs. I’ve seen to SoCal, Chicago, Texas, you name it. Very common.

Re: LAX Aviation Thread - 2020

LAX is a huge market, but its split and its expensive to operate in; the US3 + WN have stations that are much more cheaper to operate in. The chance for LAX being dehubbed is very much a possibility; possibly being a focus city or a simple outstation, with TATL, TPAC, and Latin American services be...

Re: New York Center (ZNY) ATC Zero

Could the Air Force be brought in to be temporary staff to handle flights at a very reduced capacity? Best case would be airborne E-3 AWACS for the busiest sectors. The Navy had E-2s which could also be tasked if needed. This would never work. Non radar procedures from an adjacent facility would be...

Re: Question about vertical separation

Another fun fact, in the enroute world at least, planes have a +\- 250 buffer before the system will give an alert. Theoretically, you could have a plane at 29750 and 29250 and it’s all good separation wise.

Re: Southwest adding 16 new gates in Denver, will be WN's largest city

Very exciting that WN is willing to give HDN a try - from DEN. If this experiment goes well, I suspect destinations like ASE, BZN, DRO, EGE, GUC, JAC and/or MTJ could follow suit. HDN could set a very interesting precedent for WN and its DEN hub/focus city/whatever WN calls it... No 737 into Aspen.

To be more accurate, ATC asked if they needed to HOLD for dumping fuel. The pilot's only answer to that question was "Negative". The question from ATC was ambiguous. Does this situation get investigated by the FAA to the point that data on the CVR would be analysed? That would be very int...

Nope, there’s nothing to worry about. These routes are inactive 90% of the time, at least in my airspace. If you filed an IFR flight plan ATC will keep you separated. If you are flying VFR, they may advise you. If the IR routes go near an approach that you are flying, it may not be legally separated...
