Re: AA9897 MKE-LAX?

MKE is a major maintenance base for SkyWest, so this is likely a repo flight.

Re: AA Retires All Airbus A330-200s

Wow. A global airline with only two widebody types. This should be great as far as fleet utilization and operating costs.

Re: United extends Mesa contract; add 20 more E175s

I have seen a couple of the new YV birds sitting on the ramp in IAH for a couple weeks now. Are these a one-for-one replacement of the -700s that are East Coast-based?

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

It is disappointing that IAH wouldn’t see some capacity growth with high loads. WN just announced a ton of new routes from HOU which could cut in if UA doesn’t do a little more. Would love to see GRR and RIC come back and one more bank of flights. Did IAH, UA and the TSA finish the baggage system u...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

Here are a few updates out today October 8, 2020 Furloughs: No Deal, dispatchers have voted down the TA between UAL and PAFCA, as a result United will move forward with furloughs on November 1, 2020. Facilities: There may be a buyer for the Elk Grove Village facility but we have heard that before. ...

Re: Ukraine International to operate 737-900ER to JFK

I'm very uneducated on the subject of turnarounds and plane fueling, but why block an entire hour for a process that would not require passenger deplaning or anything other than a fuel truck coming in and doing its thing? How long does it normally take to fuel up a 739ER? Refueling with pax onboard...

This seems like a pretty safe addition for the IAD hub, especially the EYW route.

Re: AA Adds Routes Including CUN-CMH/IND, MIA-MKE/PWM/ROC, JFK-SJD and more

Possibility of resuming plans for AUS-SJD, Saturday only?

It seems likely AA will play the dartboard game, but if this is the one way to find some sort of profitability then all is welcome.

Re: 2020 NFL Charters

Any word on what the Miami Dolphins will be using? They were often to be seen on the Miami Air B737-800s, usually two at a time. The Dolphins actually used 5Y 744s last season, from what I recall. Might be the same case this season, especially with LL essentially going out of business (if I recall ...

Re: United potentially moving towards one E145 operator

The question remains: what will fill EV's void at IAH? The 50-seat market there is what supports much of the south and southestern US.

Re: Boeing 747-400 Passenger Fleet Tracking/Retirements Thread - 2020

Sorry for being late to the game, but are there any ACMI operators such as 5Y who would take a couple of stored planes off the hands of BA, LH or QF?

Re: Who holds the Trans States Airlines certificate now?

The EV operation is one of UA's biggest, and their demise would leave quite the gap in their network. Is this "new player" rumor showing any truth in the midst of all that's going on? Interesting times 2020 has had and will continue to have for us...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

With the imminent rearrangement of the fleet can it be assumed that the 77E will receive an expedited retirement date and a solid future for the A350 order? International travel will, hopefully, be back to normal by 2027, and its fuel efficiency will be a good excuse to bring them onboard.

Re: American adds more Asia to SEA, and other long-haul changes

Though incredibly optimistic during a global health crisis, I think AA has the right idea in expected capacity. Summer 2021 will, hopefully, look better than the current summer in terms of global connectivity. The necessary cuts to seasonal routes was writing on the wall, but the focus on DFW and PH...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

If UA wants to be moderately aggressive they can really put up a fight in LA now that AA is pulling down a lot. After stripping the 787 from LAX it will be interesting to see how UA reacts internationally to AA's downsizing. Kirby is in no way interested in burning cash, more now than ever, so LAX ...
