Amazon Air adding Boeing 737-800BCF to fleet

It appears Amazon Air is adding 20 Boeing 737-800BCFs to be operated by Southern Air (9S) for at least 7 years with an option to extend for an additional 3 years. From the article, there is also a pic of a new (modified) Prime Air livery. I believe this would be the first operator of the -800BCFs in...

Re: New F9 Routes: BTV/BIL/BFM/GRB -DEN - 1/22/2019

This isn't the first time F9 has done GRB-DEN. They ran it back in about 2010. It was done to compete with then UAs ATW-DEN route (which IIRC, was also moved to GRB). Eventually both carriers dropped the route. Now UA brought back ATW-DEN last year so this doesn't surprise me that F9 is going to giv...

Re: United Airlines announces order for 25 E-175 and 4 787-9's

Plot twist: The 25 175s end up going to Air Wisconsin. That is just complete theory but they REALLY need new aircraft and they just started their JSA with United again with just CRJ-200s. ZW also just broke ground on a brand new 30,000sq ft hangar in ATW with and additional 8000sq ft of office space...

Re: AA cancels CRJ flights from PHX due to extreme heat

I've been on some CRJ-200 flights lately where the crew has asked 2-4 people to move to seats in the rear of the airplane for W&B issues. I've flown a lot of segments in CR2s and this is the first time I recall crews doing this. Don't think it was temp related and not AA in PHX either. Not my f...

Re: Black nose

You are correct. It's purpose is to prevent glare from the nose hitting the flight deck.
