So it looks like N772UA is being/has been retired?Jump to post
If it's an ULCC crowd thing why don't we hear about these type of incidents on G4? G4 attracts a different crowd than NK/F9, mainly retirees and families. You have to remember that G4 doesn't serve a lot of the big cities that some of these people come from. People from smaller cities tend to respe...Jump to post
Sorry, you've totally lost me. Of course it's easier to source a spare aircraft or crew at a giant hub like CLT than at a small outstation like BDL or HPN. That's neither odd nor unique to AA or B6. You've also missed the point because it's not what you wanted to hear. Guess I shouldn't take you se...Jump to post
B6 (and I'm assuming all the other LCC's and ULCC's, this is not just them) is great when everything operates according to plan, but has no backup (planes, crews, etc) when things go wrong during IRROPs. Case in point just this month my parents B6 flight from BDL-MCO was delayed by about 10 hours b...Jump to post

I am not saying violence does not happen during protests. Obviously it does. But to compare BLM to the domestic terror attack of 1/6 is crazy. If I was a business owner watching my store burn to the ground and others looted I would probably disagree with you. And you could file an insurance claim. ...Jump to post

Rep. Greene really needs to get out of Congress along with Boebert. Sorry, but these two looneys are an embarrassment to the country. Good grief!! Why is it so hard for the GOP to put a muzzle on these two?! Do you really think that this is only a GOP issue? Remember this dozy? https://www.youtube....Jump to post
I agree that people who are not US citizens, who are demonstrated to be acting as foreign agents of hostile countries should be deported. Of all these groups, Chinese citizens would likely be the greatest in number and among the most sophisticated. I think any national security or intelligence prof...Jump to post
Trying to tick off the 737-600 (the only 737 variant I'm missing other than the more elusive 737-100) and was disheartened to find WestJet quietly retired their fleet due to COVID. I also know SAS retired theirs a while back, and was wondering if there were currently any other operators of the type,...Jump to post
I'll start by saying I started flying WN in the late 2000's, and they quickly became one of my favorite airlines. They were that quirky Texas airline that had low fares, an all 737 fleet, no fees, fantastic customer service both on the ground and in the air, and great inflight service (peanuts, pret...Jump to post
Probably not, American, Delta, and United all fill their niches and are "right sized",
What you might start to see are more hybrid models that aren't full service carriers but aren't ULCC's either, airlines that are like B6/WN such as Avelo and Breeze.
Man I miss the golden days when flying was a luxury, you wore your best clothes and the experience was amazing. I still always dress very nice when I fly... i feel like the wonder of flight just merits it.... even though I fly very often... I dress nice when I know I'm flying first/business, not wh...Jump to post
Congrats to United! They have really improved. I flew WN and UA this summer from DEN and UA was much better. WN had 4 drink options(not even a can offered), chaotic boarding and huge delays. Not impressed with Southwest at all. United had much better service! I am surprised Delta didn’t make it up ...Jump to post
Except nobody’s bending the rules here - the airline has a policy saying crews can opt for the opposite gender’s uniform, and if they do so, they have to wear it correctly and completely. If JetBlue were really creative - like the "old" Southwest Airlines - I could see them making a comme...Jump to post
About how to call someone, my country hasn't caught up with that yet, and since I'm rather conservative regarding the French language, there will definitely be issues with all the variations. I would hope that man would accept to be called either way, and correct us if needed, but in a friendly man...Jump to post
"Hey guys, our on time rating sucks and we don't really present a professional image to the public, what should we do?" "Oh I know, let our male FA's wear dresses!". I stand with B6 pilots and ALPA for the upcoming call out/walk out. Enough is enough. Unions fight for working co...Jump to post

If I used my benefits at my job to fly around while I was supposed to be at work, I would be fired.
Why do politicians get a pass?
Can someone tell me what's with United's obsession with Mesa? No one likes them.Jump to post
I thought speed limits were meant for roads where you would find "obstacles" like driveways, pedestrians, bikers, lots of crossing points etc, not freeways. I think that's just a cash grab. I know I personally check my speed and even go slower sometimes when I'm on a busy city street or re...Jump to post
B6 operation at BDL yesterday was abysmal, LAX-BDL pushed back to next day which in turn delayed BDL-MCO (parents were on that flight) from the morning until early evening with the afternoon MCO flight being pushed back to later at night, and downline delays as well. I know many airlines are having ...Jump to post
I’ve always found their complete lack of interest in science baffling. We’re nothing more than a very improbable and brief spark of consciousness, so doesn’t it seem rather important to learn as much, see as much and experience as much as possible? It’s as if they’re terrified to see or know anythi...Jump to post
CPAC bills itself as The largest and most influential gathering of conservatives in the world.

In my travels driving under the speed limit is actually even more dangerous from what I've seen. How much? 75 in an 80mph is safe. 45mph in a 65mph is not safe. I used to drive home really late (3am). The number of fatalities I witnessed was... 5 too many. Two were speeding motorcycles. All were do...Jump to post

Yeah, that is pretty harsh.
Did you have out of state plates? Cop was probably pissed all he could get you for was 8 MPH over the speed limit.
Ha, I'd tell them no way, let them arrest me, and let my lawyer have a field day with them. Despite the outraged bootlickers in this thread screaming it I never mentioned suing, I just mentioned I'm not raising my arms. If your lawyer is going to have a field day and not sue anyone, what is he or s...Jump to post

Dougie has to know something on someone, since their respective mergers Delta is on their second CEO (the first one having retired) and United is on their third. Morale is extremely low at AA and I don't know anyone in the company outside of maybe HQ at DFW who likes him. I don't know many people ou...Jump to post
I have to laugh at all the armchair lawyers who think passengers can sue over this incident. Too bad the odds of this happening while you all are on a flight are slim. But why don't you go ahead and sue the TSA next time you go through airport security. After all, they made you empty your pockets, ...Jump to post
Carrying over from the US Airways days and when the 733's and 734's were retired, CLT has mainly been A319/A320/A321 domestic operations for US/AA. I recently traveled to CLT over a period of a few weeks for business and noticed a bunch of AA 738's at the airport, it was almost like I was at MIA or ...Jump to post
This is what happens when you close the insane asylums, these people get released into the general public and create these scenes/assault other humans. Feel bad for the ULCC employees/contract workers.Jump to post
Wow, a guy with no legitimacy calling out another guy with no legitimacy. Both have proven they are traitors to this nation and the rule of law and must be punished accordingly.

Stewart has been the “next gateway” airport for NYC for the last 40 years, it still will be in 2030. This.
