In short, yes, they would almost certainly be invited up front (if they weren't there already) to help. How much they would do would depend largely on the judgement of both the PIC and the pilot hitching a ride. Using the radio and speed callouts would be almost a certainty.Jump to post
Ah, the good ol' "you ain't union, you ain't protected"... You do understand that companies cannot fire someone just willy-nilly? You still need an "official" reason to let someone go. Patently false in the US, unless you live in Montana (the only state that is not "at-will...Jump to post
El Paso and ABQ should have long enough runways, and would have the similar issue around parking as it seems PHX did. Anyways, pretty cool to see the pictures. I highly doubt either of those airports are qualified to handle an A380 diversion. A diversion of an aircraft that size requires more than ...Jump to post
Nice sub today. American operated a 77W in place of a 757 this morning for flight #812 from DFW at B25..returned to DFW as #9240 at 1051 hrs MST. Especially nice for any avgeek's onboard! Wow. But what catches my eye is the return flight #...9240? I thought AA only used the 9000-range of numbers fo...Jump to post
Did anyone catch why Frontier diverted to Mesa Gateway this afternoon? It seemed very strange that they went to Gateway rather than just going to Sky Harbor which is where the usual Vegas diversions go. They left after a 5-hour delay on the ground at Gateway (yikes) PHX was having issues with cross...Jump to post
What was the journey for QF7 at PHX? Did it pull into a gate, or just stop somewhere to wait out the storm and top up with some petrol? Parked out on the west side by the old executive terminal. There are no gates for the A380 (or towbars for that matter). Don’t US regulations require international...Jump to post
What crew base is staffing the PHX-LHR flights? I assume a crew was deadheaded from LAX for the inaugural PHX-LHR flight You have to figure either a 4-day trip, with a deadhead leg on day 1 or day 4, or a 6-day trip, starting and ending at the base. Of course, the crew doesn't have to stay with the...Jump to post
Didn't notice it posted here but a new airline, Advanced AIr operating King Airs has won the EAS for Silver City from Boutique and will be a new carrier to PHX. I'm guessing they'll move into T2 with Contour and Boutique. I wonder what accomodations they'll have to make for these carriers in the T3...Jump to post

I wonder if they inquired with AA on renting one of their regional gates on the "birds nest" ? On the east side it seems there is always a gate open or a CR2 thats parked there rather extensively. They inquired about using a Common Use Gate (B28) but that got cut real quick once they real...Jump to post
While I have no problem with the policy personally as it is industry-standard in the US, PHX is a pretty large crew base and Arizona law does not allow employees to be punished or reprimanded for using their 40 hours of paid sick leave. The PSL law also does not require a set prior notice; only req...Jump to post
Sounds more generous than what I get after 35 years with Gannet. I don't get this argument. Just because you chose to stay with an employer with crappy rules, in a state with crappy laws, and didn't fight to make it better (or maybe you did and lost), doesn't mean everyone else should just roll ove...Jump to post
Just to clear some things up: "Personal days" are a contractual allotment of 2 trips per year that AA FAs can call out for any reason without being penalized. In the US, federal law does not generally protect a worker's right to miss work due to injury or illness. There is something called...Jump to post
Did I hear correctly on 12 News that something has been improved/fixed so that the Eagle RJ's won't have the ops problems in extreme heat anymore, so they won't have to cancel flights any longer? Yes. American provided the needed funds to have the Skywest and Mesa performance charts updated, they n...Jump to post
It'll be a 777 if it does happen.

Anyone know why the AA 777 flight from MIA to LAX diverted here Thursday? I happened to see it when taxiing by for my red-eye to ATL. Looks like it landed around 8 pm with anticipated departure at 9:15 pm. At midnight it was still on the B concourse and dark. I did a double-take when I saw it. Rare...Jump to post

I guess it's not him, sounds pretty similar though. I wonder if Sullenberger has a midwest accent or something.
Not sure how this missed the prying eyes of this forum, maybe I missed it being posted... HA is operating a red-eye flight HNL-PHX with an A332. tonight 03/17.

If you ask 10 Americans what freedom of speech means, you’re probably going to get nine wrong answers. Pity for them they WEREN'T arrested. In America, we have this funny thing called "free speech".

T3N will be reconfigured but not completely demolished. IIRC they’ll have a bump-out mid concourse for concession space, an upper-level club, and a ramp-level BMU.

I have pictures somewhere of a QF A380 from about five years ago off a diversion from LAX. One would think if a QF A380 landed in PHX about five years ago, it would be listed PHX Charters & Aircraft Movement site, but there is nothing from 2011-2016 that states a QF 380 landed here before...I k...Jump to post

Would be interesting to see if a hotel goes for it, as it would be the first on airport property.

I believe adding preclearance directly in LHR would make much more sense than stopping at SNN just for that. As ua900 has mentioned, the reason why they stop at SNN is to add fuel when taking off from LCY. What is the historic reason why there is preclearance at SNN but not at LHR? Because of an ol...Jump to post
It's possible that once the remaining pier on Concourse D is built out (assuming Southwest then vacates some or all of a Concourse C pier in exchange) that it will alleviate some of this, but we won't know for about five years.

Is 8/26 closed at night for repairs? Landed on a late AS flight last night and we were on the south side (yay no taxi time!). Also, on a somewhat unrelated note, when did AA start boarding 757s through L1 in PHX? When I flew CLT-PHX the other day on the 757 we used L2. I'm sure it's gate specific, ...Jump to post

AA uses red and white stripes on the tails of its planes. While certainly inspired by the US flag, it's hardly worth calling it the full flag.

Remember, it takes several seconds for engines to spool up to TOGA and to arrest a descent. They had already started the go-around process by the time the picture was taken.
