Is Cape Air leaving Billings or is this a tecnam code thing? Tecnam, on Cape Air's FB Page they announced transition to Tecnam for Kirksville (IRK) and Manistee. It's odd it's having that effect in the OAG Threads but thankfully these aren't schedule changes. I am booked on Cape Air in a week and a...Jump to post

It is a very good sign regarding Delta's cash position that they are taking these widebodies. If they were worried about running out of cash, they wouldn't be taking any aircraft. How do you know these aren't contractual obligations that Airbus declined (at reasonable terms) to defer? It's cash out...Jump to post
Looks like DL will be taking delivery of 17 new aircraft in September. 6 A220-100 4 A220-300: Will be parked upon delivery 3 A321 2 A330NEO 2 A350 Good news if you ask me. Almost bet these are replacements for the 737-700 and some of the 777s. DL won’t have crews to operate the new A220 deliveries ...Jump to post

That shouldn't be possible unless the left strike deflected the wing enough to allow the #2 to strike. I need to see a video. That is a landing rougher than I have any experience with. I'm betting crew fatigue. Give the pilots a wizz quiz and a Covid19 test! I've read a bunch on how Covid19's reduc...Jump to post
Not sure if this is the appropriate forum for this but here goes - might it be time for the FAA to upgrade the regulations on single pilot operations to say 14 or 15 passengers? There are alot of cities that are going to loses service permanently when this settles out. And once that happens. then t...Jump to post
I think there will be opportunities for airlines with deeper pockets and resources to eventually re-emerge in competitive positions. AS in SEA and B6 in JFK/BOS could have challenges against the Big 3 even if those cities are where they would retreat to. Similarly, if any of the Big 3 were to get to...Jump to post
This is the correct thread for this question another poster brought it up in the COVID-19 thread. Let me start off by saying this was not COVID-19 related.

A pilot can bid and fly whatever their seniority holds. If the aircraft they are flying is retired, they move to what they can hold potentially displacing less senior pilots. The entire process can have a cascade effect. There are some nuances like seat locks and fenced aircraft, but this is a gener...Jump to post
I was on a DL A350 from ATL-ICN and ICN-DTW in the last 2 weeks. What a great plane. Comfortable and very smooth. The one thing I did notice on the DL plane, the crew rest was the last 3 seats in the center section of the plane. It was not an isolated area with beds. I thought that was a bit cheap ...Jump to post
To stop the armchair pilots and mechanics at the root: it was neither pilots', operator's or aircraft's fault for this event. Be patient for once and wait for official statements. Trust me, I know.

While G4 hasn't yet added CVG-HOU nonstop service, G4 had announced that it is going to be starting service out of HOU starting on May 21st.

Omaha is pretty strong economically, so no surprises with the additions other than I'm surprised they didn't already operate those pairs. When AA added MIA to DSM many people wondered why they had it before OMA which is bigger. Nobody wondered that. AA flies Miami-Omaha daily with a Republic 175 du...Jump to post

I’ve read about other instances where senior FAs bid the good trips and have a scheme where they drop them to junior FAs in exchange for compensation. I wonder if it can be scaled where they pick up other trips and/or displace people from positions to avoid hard work. I’m guessing that if DL termina...Jump to post
I posted this on a local DSM forum but thought somebody on here might have more insight: Omaha-Miami was announced year-round nonstop daily. It started in June of 2016 I think, lasted until August 2017 when it was cancelled. Then it came back December-March daily seasonal over winter 2018. It is no...Jump to post
DEN is currently infrastructure limited, but the ongoing expansions should fix that in the short term. I think they will need to start planning for a terminal D.

I live in a city with Cape Air EAS flights to several smaller towns. I'd love to fly these planes. From a pilot perspective, they're well equipped and a good transition from piston singles, for people with limited multi time, and a stepping stone to higher performance aircraft and jets.Jump to post

Also a lot more capacity on the EWR- SLC route from DL and UA. Anything to do with the new terminal?
DEN-RIW-SHR. It’s a SkyWest milk run like DEN-PUB-LBL, DEN-HYS-SLN.
As for PDX. I can't believe it does well enough now to keep flying to NRT. Without any feed at HND I will be shocked to see it survive. If JL/NH entered DL would be crazy to even stay 1 second longer. With no feed on either end they would be demolished. I wonder if DL has a plan for where to ask to...Jump to post
My brother was in Belgrade, MT today, where the Bozeman/Yellowstone airport is, and said there were Delta A-220's there. Negative on that. Mix of E175s/A321s from SLC and A320s/A321 from MSP. A 752 from ATL. They may have A220/CS100/300 towbars like BIL but no scheduled service. I could see it in t...Jump to post
(ExpressJet fit this classification before it was bought by United this year). United didn't buy ExpressJet. A company called ManaAir, LLC bought it from SkyWest last December. Yes but ManaAir is a United Airlines venture. So while it is technically another company, it’s closely related to United.Jump to post
Sorry, might have made sense for you, but for the large population centers CMH, CLE and CVG actually serve it really wasn't a great experience having to haul yourself an hour's drive plus away to catch a flight at a decent fare from DAY/CAK/IND/SDF.

Is it true that UA is going to use the high number regional gates in A this summer in addition to the CUTE gates in A and C?

I had a weekend trip planned and UA had a delay followed by a cancellation of the flight.

Most of the DL charters are on the dedicated charter 757s with premium seating that don’t operate normal passenger flights.

From the weekly OAG thread; DL CMH-SLC JAN 0.9>0.2 This must be a misfile right? They aren’t trimming the route down to almost nothing before it even begins, are they?

Apparently they can't fill the seats against proper revenue to SJO.

We flew MCO to AUA in Aug of 2015 with literally 15 people on the plane. Glad to see that the load factors have improved. The flight attendants liked it because it wasn’t busy, and a high time out and back, so it went pretty senior. The conversation was good and the drinks were free!Jump to post
Slow growth as expected as we haven't seen an announcement in awhile, just slow capacity increases from airlines like American, Delta, and United. What could be the next expansion we see? ⋅ AS adding CVG-SEA nonstop service ⋅ AA adding CVG-LAX and CVG-PHX nonstop service ⋅&...Jump to post
[twoid][/twoid] FWIW, AA has 1 MD-80 that's 30, but the rest of the active fleet is only 20 Could that be the only 30 year old bird flying regular passenger service that's NOT a 757/767/A320?
