You might want to present some evidence that "most airlines are cleaning more" since I haven't seen any reports of that. Then you haven't been paying attention at all.

Are you looking at another airport? Most routes are cancelled and at most half a dozen United flights a day. It certainly looks like flights are operating to LAX, SFO, HKG, HNL, SPN, NRT, ROR, and SIN some with multiple 777/787. SIN? Don't think so. Source? They have been flying cargo flights GUM-S...Jump to post
What niche are we looking at? VX is AS and they cover just about every market VX filled. The profitable ones at least. UA is hubbed at SFO, WN has a huge Bay Area presence. Not really sure where B6 would tap thats a so called niche. The Bay Area isn't the LA market so there are not as many markets t...Jump to post
It appears JSX is coming back to BFI with nonstop service to LAS starting July 23rd. https://www.jsx.com/destinations Yes!!! This is great!!! Looking forward to flying on them. BFI to LAS? This will be a good one for them. I wonder if they plan to fly the BFI to PDX route. I was scheduled for their...Jump to post
What are those?? Sorry, as Critical said, being a widebody obviously bags and most cargo in is loaded in cans, with the exception of the bulk section. It was frequent to bump low priority cargo to get all the revenue passengers onboard. I wonder if the addition of the 2nd SFO-SIN frequency helped w...Jump to post

JSX will be launching new LAS service initially. OAK should return in time and once the fleet and passenger numbers return, then I'd expect PDX to launch. Interestingly enough the timing of the BFI-LAS would seem this will be flown by the BFI base, which never did open before Covid hit.Jump to post
Covid hit during the winter season. Chances are seats were being blocked for weight due to headwinds. This flight can be a nasty one during the winter. I have a Captain friend that blocked a 18:05 SFO-SIN, granted this was gate to gate. When working Ops in SFO, this flight would get restricted frequ...Jump to post
A.net myth. There is nothing official on this It's not possible to line up two aircraft onto the 4/22s at EWR simultaneously due to the low-altitude traffic coming up along the Hudson for all LGA arrivals that come in from the south and the west at about 4000 ft. To do simultaneous approaches, you ...Jump to post

Ok, now the second hour of morning news, they are saying Dreamliner instead of Dreamlifter which would mean a 787. That makes more sense, if it turns out to be a 787 it will be a minor event.

Interesting increase in SEA, in the future possibly add routes such as Hong Kong, Sydney, Madrid and Auckland Not really sure your going to see any of these.

Doesn't surprise me from a labor cost standpoint. UA is not the only airline cutting foreign crew base anyway. For example, while UA cut HKG base, CX had already cut their YVR crew base and a few others. I am surprise that UA actually still have a base in HKG anyway. They have what? 3 daily flights...Jump to post
JNU is way too difficult, particularly for pilots who may be unfamiliar with the approach and a plane with mechanical difficulties. Hence, they chose YXY. Makes no sense.

Understandable. Why add another type of aircraft in your fleet when demand isn’t there? Any idea what’s going to happen to the 5 A350-1000 that are already built but never put to service?

As much as I would like to see SJC get some love, I think this has SFO or LAX written all over it.

I am really surprised. I have never expected, that they will get the clean sheet prototype so fast into the air, as the assembly has started only few month ago.

I doubt it. United is gaining three gates in T2, not enough to justify a United Club.

The problem still is the lack of parking spaces and terminal room. Flights are routinely taking delays or having to divert due to a lack of ground space.

As Pinto said, this is "The Bay Tour". We can request this on pushback with SFO ground.

What's not helping the matter of circling to the 01's is visibility is forecasted in the TAF to be around 5mi. The circle to land (a visual) usually begins at 6mi from the field. This will added more un-needed challenge to the approach or make it unusable. Scarebus is probably right that the 10's wi...Jump to post
