IAD still has LH.
BWI has no pax 747s.
DCA definitely has no pax 747s.
ADW has some military 747 flights occasionally, though.
Can QR not feed their flight with AA since they're both OneWorld? I tried a few dumbly booking on Google Flights and found no feed on the U.S. side for QR flights According to wikipedia, about 56,000 people come through PHL on AA each day (averaged over a year). AA is a OneWorld partner of QR. Ther...Jump to post
It seems it’s just a single poster, I thought someone was having a laugh when I saw three “Snow at XYZ?” threads in a row on the forum. Yep, the “Snow at LAS/PHX/LA?” threads were all started by the same person. To be fair, snow at those 3 airports is rare rare enough to ask how they will handle op...Jump to post
As IAH is one of the major hubs of United Airlines, I have been curious why UA does not have any scheduled flight to Asia-Pacific except NRT and SYD, from IAH? Is codesharing with UA's Star Alliance partners, including NH, CA, and BR, more than enough to cover Asia-Southern USA traffic except for T...Jump to post
I could see this helping at EWR, but I don’t think it will help SFO. Since SFO arrives and departs on crossing runways, they’ll still need adequate spacing between arrivals to ensure departures can shoot the gap between arrivals. Really the only way to improve the situation at SFO is to allow paral...Jump to post

It makes me wonder what will happen with their 343s. Will they revert back to AF, or will they be parked altogether? Well, they are all between 19 and 21 years of age. That seems a little young to retire, but not worth converting back. AF still operates plenty of (worse) angled flat seats in their ...Jump to post
And of course the plane is a 767.Jump to post
At that time of year. AA should have a lot of slack in its fleet that it doesn't need to pull a plane off ORD to fly this route. But it does say that perhaps ORD-NRT for AA is not as big a winner as it was years ago. Especially when the LAS flights to NRT are tourist boats with minimal yield. ...An...Jump to post
But can the US president do this? I don't know how it works, but isn't the presidential fleet under pure AF jurisdiction? I don't want him to change the current iconic livery...

Don't forget the AS MD-80s! My last flight on a MD-80 was on AS, SEA-SMF and back.

Most likely the unplanned stop at Gander was due to a medical emergency, and it caused the crew not to have enough duty time to finish the flight to TLV.
